This is absolutely useless for measuring distance. Though it is correct sometimes, it's rare. I've measured completely empty rooms with this and gotten inaccurate readings. The temperature sensor does seem to work fine, but Ryobi makes a stand-alone temperature gun that's $10 cheaper. This also burns through 9V batteries pretty fast. If you're looking for a quality distance measurer, I'd definitely go with a Bosch instead. I've accurately measured entire office buildings with those.

The infrared thermometer is easy to activate and then read - very accurate / same with the measuring distance readout up to 30 feet...awesome tool.

I bought one of these recently, and got to try it out this weekend, measuring the inside of large window frame for a shade. This device told me the window height was 3' 6" (42"), my tape measure said it was 3' 9-1/2" (45-1/2"). The window width was reported as 2' 9" (33"), again, my tape measure showed it was 5' 10" (70-1/8"). The difference was 3-1/2" X 37-1/8", or 92% X 47% accuracy.
My only explanation is, that maybe the 4" window sill was too small of a target. Anyway, beware.

In no way could this EVER be used as a measure...ever! It's no where close to accurate, does not display anything between full inches! Measure the same distance twice and you'll get two different results. Truthfully, I'm not sure what purpose this device serves at all. Only plus was HD took it back. Don't waste your time or money.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by rodreal Very erratic and inaccurate
This product cannot be trusted because it gives measurements all over the board from the same distance. even if i sit on a flat stable surface, measurements are either not given or can GET DIFFERENT MEASUREMENTS EACH TIME.

Unless for some reason you see a need to have a piece of plastic that is never correct, I wouldn't buy this "instrument".
