I like the way the on/off switch is also the leveling lock switch, however I don't like the way I have to dig my fingernail into the switch's grooves to slide it into position, or I place both thumbs on each side of the switch too slide it. Too small and thin to be user friendly switch, I would prefer the switch profile twice as large because as is it's a chore to hook a single finger on it. AS tight as the switch is, I doubt it will even accidentally be bumped on. When going through the modes: cross-hair, horizontal line, vertical line, and plumb points. I can't have just cross-hair lines without the plumb points on at the same time. If Bosch thinks the grooves in the switch are a thumb-pad to push the slide action, go ahead and do it that way, and feel the meat of your thumb separate from your fingernail. I like the bright/dim modes. The dim mode the thickness of the line will stay at 1/16" to about 10' then 1/8" up to 20'. The bright mode starts at 3/32 thickness up to about 3' then it's an 1/8" and fattens up quick.

Plumb Points only work in self-leveling mode
Overall I found this unit to be easy to use, but it does have an annoying restriction for something I wanted to use it for: for some reason Bosch decided to only enable the plumb lines when the unit is in self-leveling mode. I have some applications where I wanted to use it to measure straight out from a wall, but you can't do that with the plumb-line dots as they won't activate in locked mode. This coupled with poor instructions for the included accessories was my main reason for rating it only 3 stars. Other than that complaint, this unit seems to work fine. It shoots a horizontal line, vertical line, or both out the front in "locked" mode (laser beams are relative to the unit at any angle). In addition the unit can self-level within 4 degrees, and in that mode it shoots plumb-line dots both up and down. I found the instructions for the main unit to be easy to understand, and it includes extensive instructions on how to verify that the self-leveling is working within spec. The stated working distance under standard conditions is listed as 65 ft, although this can be extended to 165 feet with an optional receiver. The reality is that the lines get dimmer the farther you get from the unit, so the more light there is, the shorter the working distance will be. The unit has both 1/4" and 5/8" tripod mounts on the bottom, but you will either need a small tripod head or special tripod if you don't want to block the bottom plumb dot when using it. This unit comes with several accessories including a storage case for the main unit (which can attach to your belt), a reflector for increased working distance, a magnetic arm with rotating adjustment, and a ceiling grid clip. I will note that the magnetic arm does not have any way to lock the angle in, so you can't use it to shoot perpendicular to a wall. While I found the instructions for the main unit to be good, the instructions to be quite sparse for using any of these accessories, so plan on something other than the included instructions for learning to use them. The unit is powered by 3 AA batteries, and comes with a 1-year parts and labor warranty (which is extendable to 2 years if you register it within 60 days).

Incredible Versatility
How can you possibly find another option for mounting this, which they have not. The mounting capabilities are outstanding. I used a very strong camera tripod outdoors, and a moderate breeze did not affect the stability of the laser. My first use with the laser level was to simply cast a straight line between survey pins and stakes, for marking the area for fencing. It was worth it's weight in gold and easier than using string between two points. At a distance of 80 feet outside, and the laser in the center, I was able to cast a beam of laser light between two survey pins. Remember this test was outside and difficult in any circumstances. I was pushing the limits at this point, however with an optional receiver you can extend than distance to 165 feet. I did this at sunrise to keep the beam easy to see. I was surprised at the strength of the laser beam outdoors. I found extreme accuracy with all the functions of the laser, and appreciated being able to mount it to a wall, ceiling, tripod, clip, and more ways I can even mention. The directions and diagrams are easy to follow and understand. The directions fit nicely into the protective pouch with the laser. There are enough attachments included to do most projects, and plenty more available options to expand operations to the limits. Comparing the laser lines at level on the wall, with a high quality door jamb level, the line with the laser was pin point accurate a 7 feet (the laser level in the center of 7 feet). The controls are very easy to use, and accessible. In summary - the versatility is outstanding. The accuracy fell in line with their specs and actually a bit more accurate than advertised. Ease of use is phenomenal. Included and optional accessories are great and good strength. Overall quality is very good.

Well Made Self Leveling Laser Level
The Bosch self-leveling cross-line with plump points laser level is a well made, easy to use tool. Out of the box you will have the laser level, the RM 2 magnetic rotating mount as well as a strong magnetic mount that has fine adjustments for precise positioning of your line for either horizontal, vertical or cross hair. It is self leveling and will indicate an out of level condition. This is a must have tool for any tradesmen. Works best inside and has a tolerance of 1/8 in 65'. All in all a very well made and tool at a great price.

Saves you so much work!
I am stumped by how many functions this laser has! It self-levels, then reflects a horizontal level line, then does a 90 degree vertical line as well as a plumb line from the top and bottom. This makes for much easier and quicker work. Included in the kit are two mounts which can work together or independently. One is responsible for horizontal rotation, while the other for vertical elevation. They can both be hanged, and if you have a thin piece of frame, you can clip the unit onto there. You can mount this unit onto a tripod and even adjust the angle manually to match an existing object. The fine control knobs are nice and there is no slack in them; everything is designed sturdy. There is a laser target which effectively amplifies the line for long-range purposes, where a laser would normally go dim. There is a reflector plate on the back of it which makes it easy to spot from a ways away. This kit also includes a nice carry pouch to keep it protected, as any professional knows how important it is to care for a good laser or level. I make sure my technology works before using it and tend to test it with conventional methods beforehand, so I can say this thing works well.

Affordable enough for the DIYer. Robust and Accurate enough for the Proffessional
Bosch nailed it with this. Quality build laser level with plumb points. This is truly a level that can be used by anyone from the DIYer to the Professional contractor. At its price point. It is budget friendly enough for any homeowner or DIYer to have around the house, but it is also robust enough and quality built in such a way that a professional contractor can take it out on to the job site. I can see many uses for this level as it has 4 different reference points. The plump points, vertical line, horizontal line, and intersecting center line. Let me not forget to mention how powerful the laser beams are. They are clearly seen in the most well lit room on the brightest of days. Pair it with a good tripod or the mount that comes with it and this level is good for a number of different projects such as hanging pictures or other wall mounted items, laying down floors, building walls, hanging stair railings. Though the pendulum system self levels the laser lines up to 4 degrees. You can lock the pendulum in place which will allow you to use this level to project straight lines at any angle you choose. I actually picked up this level at the perfect time. I had a family member moving into a new place and I used the level along with my camera tripod to hang all of her pictures and TV's on the wall. That was 3 tv's, 2 large mirrors, and numerous family photos and art. Though hanging pictures and tv's is not complex job. This level made the job go much faster having the level mounted to the tripod. With the 165 ft line projection there were times where I did not even have to move the level to hang items on another wall in the same room. It was great. The level has a powerful magnetic base allowing the it to be secured to any ferrous metal. The stand included is also magnetic and has knobs for micro adjusting the level with out having to physically move it to another location. The stand also allows the level to be clipped to a thin surface. Which is a great feature but it is also my only gripe about this item. Though you can clip it on to a flat surface it is limited to about an inch thick.

more than I thought I needed, but its everything I wanted.
This is an excellent tool with plumb lines, cross hairs and self leveling options. Comes with a case, batteries!, and a few mounting hardware pieces.The laser is strong and easy to see and levels quickly. The hardware is magnetic so it can stick to many surfaces on its own or attach to other tools like a tripod. Knob adjustments allow the level to be dialed in easily.
