    A very handy level, cat approved!
    I was in the market for a new level, and I had recently learned of these laser-style types, so I thought I would give it a try. The first biggest advantage with this is that it is very versatile with distance, and very clearly marks where you need to work. The pendulum mechanic is a very useful tool in making sure your measurements are true, regardless of uneven walls, floors, etc. The laser is a bright red, making it easy to spot in most environments, although brightly light areas (outdoors) make it difficult to see. This particular model also comes with a carrying case, a pair of red tint glasses, a reflector card, and a magnetic mounting bracket that can be mounted onto a wall or ceiling. Unlike most DeWalt tools, or any brand tools for that matter, this does not require a battery pack, and instead uses 4 AA batteries. The glasses work very well for areas where you may have trouble seeing the laser, enhancing it and dimming everything else. The mounting bracket is extremely sturdy, and the magnet on the unit is very powerful. It will not be moving while on there. If this is not enough to convince you to try this product, it has also been approved as a great toy by our resident cats.

    An affordable laser level to performs like the high end ones
    To start with, the Dewalt Model # DW088LR (this unit) does NOT come with either the lithium-ion battery or a charger. It comes with an 12 volt adapter battery shell that takes 4) AA batteries (which are included). You can pop in a Dewalt 12 volt battery and it will work as well. The Dewalt laser level comes in a case with generous space for other accessories. The included accessories are the adapter fixtures to hang the Dewalt from T-grid ceiling track and well as a "free hang" plate to hang the level from almost anything you can secure the plate to. The DW088LR has very strong magnets built-in but also has mounting threads for tripod use. The laser emits from a pendulum that makes leveling of the DW088LR easy since it levels itself to gavity. The pendulum locks down to protect the instrument. You can select the line output to just horizontal or horizontal and vertical. Laser line brightness is great. I ran a line for a backsplash for a kitchen with with tons of natural light flooding in and the laser was easily visible. The angle of the lines is impressive, easily casting a broad horizontal line from the mount point of the laser. The DW088LR is very easy to use and is a fine level instrument, as good as much high priced line lasers.

    Excellent cross beam laser at a reasonable price
    I used to think that the more expensive laser levels were too expensive, and that they couldn't be worth the extra money compared to the lower end consumer levels. But having used a few of the cheaper laser levels, I can say that this DeWalt laser level is vastly better, and a good value for the price if you value your time and want to produce precise results. There are two features of this DeWalt level that I find valuable that aren't listed in most specs or documentation. First, the most noticeable benefit of this DeWalt laser level over less expensive models I've used is the width / coverage of the lasers, particularly the horizontal beam. My less expensive Bosch level has a relatively narrow horizontal beam--something that isn't listed anywhere in the specs--making it a hassle to use with wider projects or projects that need to span multiple walls. I haven't seen a single (non-360) laser level that clearly lists the beam widths or coverage angles, so you typically won't know until you try one. This DeWalt laser level has a horizontal laser that is around 120 degrees wide, so you get very good coverage at reasonable distances. The vertical beam appears to be even wider, and extends to directly above the level. This is important when you are having to work inside a room and want a horizontal beam that covers multiple walls. With a narrow laser, I've had to reposition the level a few times to get full coverage, and have even had to position the level outside the door of the room to get a wide enough horizontal beam. Having a wide angle horizontal beam is a big benefit. The next feature I value in this DeWalt model is the pendulum design. This might sound insignificant, but it really reduces setup time and frustration when trying to match an existing line or reposition the level. My less expensive Bosch has an unweighted pendulum that bounces around for a several seconds when moved, and it's surprisingly tedious to work with--if there is any bump or movement you have to wait for it to stabilize. The DeWalt appears to have a weight or magnet to help dampen the pendulum, so it levels very quickly. It really makes a difference. This red beam level comes with a battery pack that accepts four AA batteries. This is a great way of keeping the cost down, as it does not include a Li-ion battery or charger. The AA option is very convenient and inexpensive. This kit also includes red laser glasses, a red reflective laser card, and a large mounting bracket that can be screwed to a wall or clipped to an acoustic ceiling grid. The kit comes in a hard plastic carrying case. Now that I've used this laser level and compared it to the cheaper models I own, I understand the extra value that you get for the higher price. It might seem a bit expensive, but if you value your time and want to get work done efficiently and accurately, I think this level is worth the investment. Two final notes: 1. Red vs. Green. If you are working indoors in spaces where you need less than 50 feet of range, this red laser should be fine. It's easily visible indoors. If you need more than 50 feet of range, or need a brighter laser, consider the green lasers, which are slightly brighter and have better range indoors. 2. Indoor vs. Outdoor. This laser works great indoors, but is tougher to use outdoors. If you are regularly using it outdoors at distances over 20 feet, you will likely need the glasses, laser card, and perhaps also the separate detector.

    Great level
    I have several trim and lighting project s at my home and wanted an updated laser level to help. This little machine works great. The lines are so clear and easy to see even in my bright lit kitchen. The lines are crisp and greatly improved over my previous laser level. It is very light weight yet sturdy. It runs on 4 AA batteries that fit into a small battery holder. The batteries lasted a long time but I would think that I would change hem to rechargeable batteries if I were to use this frequently. It comes in a large hard side carry case that has the batteries, protective glasses and some attachment included. There is also room for additional tools or accessories as needed. It is a bit pricey to purchase, but for me the simple fact that it did such a great job and made my projects run smoother made it worth the cost.

    Definitely worth the money
    Works well and is quite stable. Typical Dewalt quality. My only issue with it is that I wish it were a bit taller. I needed a line for a ceiling grid and had to set is up on top of a table to get it to the right height.
