Questions & Answers

Is this digital level superior to a conventional level when plumbing porch posts?

Asked by: Jasper
Due to my eyesight, it is easier for me to read digital display than trying to find the center of a vial. I have tried several digital levels, including three of the Empire 24 and 48 inch, and not one of them were as accurate as a bubble level. If you need superior accuracy, invest in a good bubble level.

Will it really work in 14 degree Fahrenheit temperatures,will the led screen even be visible at that cold of temperature. That's what the manual says but who has actually used it at that temperature?
Asked by: Undertaker
That is something you'll need to test. The manual will tell you the safe temperature range for this digital level. Per the actual manual it says 14 - 122 degrees Fahrenheit.

Digital level is great - using it to check % grades in exterior locations. One drawback - magnetic patches on bottom of level attracted metal "dust" created during construction (grinding metal). These bits of dust collected into lumps big enough to lift one end of the level enough to give false readings. Unless you really need level to be magnetic, get the "non-magnetic" version.

The magnets held the level firm on metal surfaces keeping it from sliding off the work truck or keeping it in place on angle iron or iron poles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive and full of features Some one sure put a lot of thought into this level. You have the digital readout along with the old fashion bubble. On top of that everything is back lit so you can read any display when it is a bit dark in the area you are working, for example up under a counter or in a closet. What I like the best about this is the tone feedback. Often when trying to level something, I can't be in reach of the shims or other means to adjust and be in a place to look at the level sights. For example, on top of a kitchen counter top and I need to shim in the back corner. With this one I can simply put the level in tone mode and crawl up under the counter to fine tune it. Granted most of the leveling of the counter is done with the base cabinets, I do fine tune when the counter top goes on. Hopefully you get the point. Also comes with a nice case with some pockets for a couple of items... The feel is also very high end and solid, looks like I will be getting the 48" and maybe longer in the near future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Work-changing product This thing is as awesome a measuring and inspection tool as I've ever laid hands on in my life. I use 4 and 6 foot precision levels almost every day in my work. Empire has finally pushed for real market presence in precision digital inspection levels. This is as good as or better than anything I've looked at in the last three years. If you're a professional framer and are wondering if a digital level would improve upon your work to the point where it's worth the price tag, yes, absolutely, no question. If you're a plumber wondering how much this will help figuring out drainage slope, there's no comparison. If you're a tile man, this is the way to go. Most importantly, if you have to inspect and critique other people's work, as I do, nothing beats this. If you're a DIYer and wondering why you should invest in this to replace your spirit level, it depends on the work you do. The best advice I can give you is to go into a Home Depot store and check this out.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The Digital reading is not accurate I really like Empire levels, and was excited when this was announced because it really has a lot of great features. That said, the one I purchased does not provide accurate plumb readings. I tried to exchange it but the two others the store had on hand also gave bad plumb readings. You can sync the level vial and digital vial manually, but not the plumb vials, and in any case it's not acceptable that these are calibrated incorrectly at the factory given the price. The digital reading was off by 1/4 inch over 4 feet, or 1/2 inch over the length of an 8ft stud. I wouldn't even use it for rough framing. I'll go back to their lighted vial level, or maybe switch to a brand that has some quality control.

I have to wonder just how many people check a level for accuracy when they get it. or do they just assume that being new, it should be fine. What is the point in owning a level that is not accurate? I bought the 24" and the 48" Empire True Blue Digital Box levels, went through three of each (six total), and not one read the same with either the bubble vial or the digital display. I had to wonder in this day and age of CNC manufacturing, how can this be? Empire priding itself in being an American manufacturer of precision tools should be able to make a good level, right? Well, it turns out that only the vials are made in America, the level is actually made in China, so you can ignore that little stars and stripes symbol on the box. There are things to like about these levels. I like the self-calibration feature, (though I question how well it actually works). The large display is very easy to read, but again Empire goofed in that the backlight doesn't come on when you power on the level - you have to push a separate button for that - and often because of the very short timeout. They look nice if that counts for anything, and they do come with a soft case, (which I quickly replaced with hard cases for protection of the digital displays). The audible tone helps to level objects when it is difficult or cumbersome to keep rechecking the display/bubbles. I'm glad that Empire decided to use AA batteries which are easy to find anywhere instead of some odd battery that may leave you stranded when you need the tool. Back to the bad. The surfaces are milled, but not polished which leaves them very rough, so do not place this level on anything you don't want scratched up. The rough edges also make running a pencil line a bit messy rubbing graphite off the pencil lead. At this price point, I think Empire could have put lights in the bubble vials - which by the way are more accurate than the digital display. The levels are quite heavy so using them all day could prove to be a bit of a workout. One thing that I noticed is that if the level sits untouched for several seconds/minutes the digital display may fluctuate between two different readings - which is right? There are two errors in the instruction manual one being unimportant, but the second is that in order to get the levels back to factory settings, the manual is incorrect. It took me some time to work this out. *This last one is a biggie, and may be reason alone not to buy these levels regardless of accuracy. There is only a one year guarantee on the electronics. Seriously? Are the electronics not made to last longer than one year? That has got to be the worst guarantee in the industry.* At first I couldn't understand why Empire would risk its reputation on moving the manufacture of what is supposed to be a precision tool to China. After some digging I found out that Empire is no longer a true American company, they were bought by Milwaukee who in turn is owned by TTI, a Chinese company, so that explains that. For what these levels cost, they should be dead-on accurate! Home Depot currently has a set of Empire spirit levels consisting of a 24" and a 48" for less than $25. Why spend hundreds on inaccurate levels when you can do just as good with the cheepies? If you want a truly good digital level, or regular spirit level, look at the Stabilas. They are made in Germany, not some third-would country. You're going to pay a premium for that privilege, but at least you know that you are getting a quality, accurate tool. The only reason that I am going to keep the levels is because I have failing eyesight and just can't read bubble vials without a magnifying glass anymore, but there is no way I could recommend these to anyone due to the fact that they just are not accurate, (although my 48" is very close). If you don't know how to check a level for accuracy, there are plenty of videos on Youtube that show you how. Always check any new level, and recheck them if you should drop it.
