Rated 2 out of 5Â by Greensberg Don't bother with this product.
I bought this laser level to paint some stripes on my wall. The reviews said the main problem was the 3M strip damaging the wall. I don't know how this can happen because these strips don't even hold up the laser level. I put it on the wall and 5 seconds later it falls. It comes with 4 strips (you use one at a time). I ended up trying it with all 4 strips on at once and it still did not hold on. What good is it if it doesn't even stay on? I ended up trying to use it with my girlfriend holding the laser up to the wall. That got really old. I can't wait to return this useless item. I gave it two stars because for the 5 seconds that it stayed on the wall, the line looked pretty straight.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Annie Easy to use
I needed a level to put up small shelves & curtain rods in my new home. This one is easy to use.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Bobby this product is a little hard to us
The tape to the wall feature is not too good if you need to move the level just a little to get the exact position

I don't know where to begin. I bought this level to lay out some painter's tape in a room I was painting. When I turned it on initially, I found that the laser was misaligned, and that there was four inches of visible line on the wall near the laser, and then a spot on the adjoining wall.
I should have returned the product then and there. Instead, I disassembled the level and was able to correct the issue using a small philips head screwdriver and a hex key. Properly adjusted, the laser was barely visible for a maximum of ten feet. It was almost completely overpowered by the light from a single 40-watt bulb in my two-car garage.
Once properly calibrated, I had to wait until after sunset to use the level, as the sunlight coming in through the drawn blinds was enough to make the laser invisible. After sunset, I had to turn off the light in the room as well, and work from the light spilling around the corner from the hallway.
Once the light issue was resolved, I layed out my line and put up my first length of painter's tape. The level worked well in these conditions, and the work went very quickly and easily. The line (once properly adjusted) was straight and true.
After putting up the first length of tape, I went to move the level to the next spot, and found that the 3M Command strip would not release. I gently pulled the tab and lifted slightly upward as directed, but the tab broke after the first 1/4" of adhesive released. I ended up trying to gently peel away the remainder, but no luck--the Command strip RIPPED A CHUNK OF PLASTER OUT OF MY WALL. The level had been adhered to the wall for MAYBE a minute and a half, yet managed to rip away a chunk larger than a quarter.
This product is pure garbage in every aspect. Even had the adhesive worked as intended, I would be pretty upset. Given all the time put in calibrating the laser and then working to get ideal lighting conditions to use the product, I'd have been better off using a traditional level over and over, all the way down the wall. These levels should be pulled from the shelves immediately.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by TheMan Worth What I Paid
I find this level to be with the 15 I paid for it. It is NOT Clearly visible in normal lighting but you can see it. You will likely need to dim the lights and/or wait till nighttime.
I would not recommend this for Professional Use. But, it is idea for home use considering the price. I didn't not have to stick mine to the wall. But if you need to... there is a tiny pin sized hole in the base and you could use a small safety pin to pin it to a wall.
I think the people that gave extremely bad reviews got defective units.
