Poor quality in several respects
This level looks very nice, but I noticed within a few weeks of use that A) you are not able to hold it flush to any wall and B) when you hold it tightly, it leaves bits of blue paint stuck to the wall. Good thing I was painting over it anyway. Don't buy.

    Great Box Level
    This level has a great weight, well made and very accurate. The machined edge is made very smooth and clean with an anodized finish. The magnets on this are amply strong and it also is a great way to store it (just don't forget where you stuck it like I did). I found that this is the perfect size level for most projects especially hanging items that one person is doing.

    Compact Magnetic Box Level
    This 24” aluminum level has a host of features. Strong magnets in the base easily hold on to iron and steel. The top side is not magnetic. The protective shock absorbing end caps are removable – that reduces the length to 22 ½”. The solid block acrylic vials are made in the USA and when looking down on the center top vial the contrast is good due to the white background. However, contrast may not be as good when looking from the side at any of the vials because of the colors and patterns in the background. Accuracy is stated as .0005”/inch or half a millimeter over the length of one meter. Each of the end vials is surrounded by a material designed to grip the surface when the level is used on its side. There is also a hole to hang the level when stored. The product feels solid and well-made and a lot of thought has gone into the design and features.

    Accurate level
    This is a high quality level at a fair price. 78" levels are perfect for setting door frames, and as with any level, accuracy is very important. I have checked the accuracy with itself (by flipping the level), and by a calibrated laser, and have found the bubbles very accurate and easy to read. The level is reinforced, and has rubber bumpers to protect it from falls. Of course, you can easily remove the bumpers if you need to use it as a straight edge. It also has a nice reinforced handle for easy and safe carrying (dropping levels is always a bad thing). The magnets are very strong and are recessed in and centered in the level (see pic), so it will not interfere with the surface you are checking. While it is very stout and well built, it is also quite lite and easy to pack around. As someone who uses levels on a regular basis, I highly recommend this one for commercial or at home use.

    Very Long Level
    I have numerous torpedo levels and a 3'. The torpedoes are great for most small jobs, or where being almost level is sufficient. When I needed a longer, more accurate level, I would use my 3'. Problem is, the fluid dried up in one vial, and dried up enough in the other, to leave no bubbles? Figured, go big or go home, so replaced it with this 78". Many times, big is too big. I am in a very old house, and tried to use this to replace the framing on my back door. Turns out the framing is 76', and not the normal 80'. The end caps remove, but still was to long (maybe 72" would be better?). BTW, the end caps have a neat locking mechanism. Pull out the gray tab and push in the black side buttons; reverse to reinstall (see pic) Hope to use it when I replace my back deck, and in the meantime, the magnets make storing it very easy.

    High quality level (magnetic)
    This is an excellent 48 inch box level – period! Made of high grade aluminum and fairly lightweight at 3 lbs 1 oz. My model (EM75.48) is magnetic (one side), the non-magnetic models don’t have the “M” in the model name after the “E”. I would assume the non-magnetic is a bit lighter, but otherwise the same. I love the blue easy to read vials and the rubber grips in the handles. The round vial housings on both ends have grip zones that prevent the level from sliding when laid flat. The magnets are very strong and the narrow sides are machined aluminum which is smooth yet slightly textured to prevent slip. There are shock absorbing end caps which are removable / replaceable. There’s also a hang hole on one end for the level to be hung. Although I initially thought that the magnets and surface grippers should be on both sides, I realized it may not be perfect for every scenario and having them on just one side is enough. Would be nice if the hang hole were on both ends.. Overall, a great box level that is easy to use and is well made.

    well built level and magnets have surprising usefulness
    I'd gotten a shorter version of this level a while back and being pleased with the quality of it decided going with a 4 ft version of it over the other two 4 foot levels I already had would be a good move to a better quality tool. I am about to be trying to vertically level a 20 ft tall piece of 1.25" EMT and I know this magnetic feature is going to be helpful for that because that is always a tricky operation (holding pole and level while someone attaches guy wires. When I got the shorter version I had not really thought the magnet was good for much except sticking it to a storage location. But I have been surprised at some of the uses I find for it. This is a well built level and the vials are well protected. The blue is actually not bad compared to the yellow I've been used to for most of my life. I like that change better than I thought I would.

    High Quality Level
    This level is high quality and superior to most products you see out there. It is well designed and well built so it should last years and remain in great shape. The vials are very clear and viewable from all angles. The shock absorbing end caps are also easily removable. It offers great accuracy. It is the right size & weight. I found it very easy to use across different types of surfaces, and you can easily handle it despite being 4ft in length. You can also hang it if necessary. Recommended.
