Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by SkubaMJ Measurements comes up short
Good for very short distance. Not consistently correct. Returns with obviously wrong measurements. Cannot count on performance. Do not recommend. Good for laser chasing with the cat.

I was planning to use this in my photography business. It was false readings after false readings.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Steeler Great product to re-gift to someone I don't like
Every once in a while I have to re-learn that you get what you pay for. At 7 bucks a piece I ordered 2 of these things and wasted $14. First thing I did was unpackage it and read the simple instructions. then I hooked a Stanley 25 foot tape to a wall and pulled out to 9 feet. This little jewel read anything from 2 feet to 20 feet by pointing it right next to the place where I connected the tape and having the unit at the same distance from the wall. Any length I held it produced the same results... tremendous variations of readings. My big challenge now is to find someone I dislike enough to give the unopened one to.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Flaquito2001 Nice tool for measuring when by yourself
It is very nice when you want to measure something like a room and you don't have anyone to help you with the measuring tape.
It is very convenient for someone like a painter or when you want to estimate materials needed for a project.

As a Realtor having a simple way to measure rooms is valuable at almost any price! Being able to purchase this tool at a reasonable price makes it indispensable!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Toolguy OK, but it's not a laser
This is not a laser measuring tool.
The laser pointer is probably misleading to many users.
Ultrasonic uses a wide beam so you must be aiming at a large uniform area (at 15' maybe a 2-3' dia.) if you want consistent and accurate results. Furniture and other clutter will often reflect the beam before it ever gets to the wall.
Obviously this tool has rather limited uses. In an open area with no clutter it is good to about an inch. Otherwise it's just for estimating. It works pretty good on ceiling heights because there is not much clutter up there.
For an ultrasonic that costs $12 it works well but just understand that it's not very accurate in cluttered areas. The laser pointer is almost meaningless.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gary NOW THIS WAS A WISE PURCHASE !!!!
This tool is something that makes things a lot easier to measure the distance . If you don't have one then you are missing out on a good one here . It's extremely easy to operate . And it is very durable as I have dropped it from a 16 foot ladder and not even a scratch on it . I don't know how I was working without it . It actually takes the place of me having one extra person . Buy it , try it & you'll like it !
