Good product for the price. It's a little noisy, but that's not a huge deal. I made a silly error when installing the batteries, so the pump worked but the laser didn't. I called the Ryobi support number and the guy was really helpful. I've only used it on drywall and it worked as expected. It's a good idea - especially against a longer run - to take a handheld level and make sure you are still level at the opposite end.
Good product. I bought it for one particular project, but I'm sure I'll find plenty of uses for it.

This is a nice little laser level and is sufficient for hanging pictures or doing other minor work that requires a tool like this. It has a little suction cup and when you turn it on it actually pumps to create the vacuum to keep it on the wall or where ever you are putting it.
I have not used it much so I'm not sure how the battery life might be after prolonged usage given it has to run a little motor to maintain the suction. I wish it had a mode for turning the suction off if you were going to use it in a situation where you don't require it to preserve battery life and reduce noise as it is a bit noisy.

Purchased this for a shelving project and determined it would not do as I had in mind. 90% operator error! As my first use of a laser level and lack of knowledge of various designs I couldn't project lines from one side of closet to the other with unit mounting flat to surface. Perfect if hanging pictures.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BJ Great little laser! Bought it for hanging artwork etc. It suctions to everything I have tried it on, so I'm a happy camper!
Batteries were a bit difficult to get in, had a problem getting the "cover" for the batteries off. After that, I'm good to go!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Pointlessaaron Pretty slick laser level, entry level product
Pretty slick laser level if you're looking for a limited use type product. I had some difficulty inserting the batteries, not because it was difficult, but because it felt like putting the cover back on would break it. Turns out as you push on the cover it can push the batteries back out preventing it from closing. Once you overcome that obstacle, it does work as advertised, which is a bit different from other laser levels that I have used in that it has a suction feature so it can adhere to surfaces which is pretty cool. There is even a floppy rubber thing that comes with it that you need so it can suction to porous surfaces - definitely pretty cool. Wish it used C or even 9V batteries and could last a bit longer than the AAA, but pretty good and would recommend.

I was looking for a cost effective laser level to hang some shelving/hooks/pictures, etc. in our new home. I saw some poor reviews for this item saying it wouldn't stick to the wall or that it was noisy, but I found it to be an excellent purchase! First off, sure, it can be a little noisy because of the built in compressor it uses to suction to the wall, but having that is a huge plus! Other similarly priced options (especially the ones I looked at in other stores, such as SKIL) use putty that wears out and is a pretty lame way to set up something you'll want to use, re-use, and move during a project. I have also had NO problems getting it to stick to textured/untextured surfaces, slightly uneven surfaces, wood, drywall, stone, etc. I went out of my way to try it on multiple surfaces because of the poor reviews some people had left, but overall I am completely happy with this item and it does what it is supposed to do. I can't vouch for its durability, but it does seem to be higher quality than the aforementioned alternatives I had looked at/used.

This level was great for a shelving project that I was working on. I needed my shelves to be exactly the same height and level and without this laser level I would have put more holes in my wall than I needed or wanted to do! I'd highly recommend it
