    Must have for the solo worker

    By jmorg1980

    Comments about Bosch 230 ft. Laser Distance Measurer:

    This thing is amazing. I use it all the time to get room measurements for square footage and things. Much easier than trying to extend a tape under furniture and things. I can't believe how accurate it is. I mostly use it for rough figures but I have used it to measure a cut at over 16' and it was a tight fit. Hard to do that with tape measures by yourself. I have found myself using it a lot more than I thought I would when I bought it. The only down on it is even though the range is high, it is hard to see far when in the daylight outside. I really didn't expect to be able too.

      When measuring for crown molding this is by far one of the best tools I've ever used. Its extremely accurate and dumby proof.


      One star away from being AWESOME unfortunately

      By windowguy

      from Georgetown, TX, United States

      Comments about Bosch 230 ft. Laser Distance Measurer:

      I really like the ease of use and function of the GLR225, HOWEVER it is just one feature away from being completely worth it. This device will not allow you to edit or change the value of the measurement to a custom setting. I need measure inside mounts for window coverings, I just need these measurements to the nearest 1/8 of an inch. This unit is hard set to 1/16 of an inch settings, which is great for more precise needs, but there is no way to adjust or change the default settings to anything else. Several other manufactures of laser measurement devices offer customizable settings to meet the users needs, I just thought this one would be comparable, but it was not, so shame on me for not researching this one in more depth before I purchased. Other than this comment the unit is solid if you take it as it comes and don't need any custom settings. Bosch engineers please add this function into your future product development lines.

        We need something to measure distances in the woods. Is this device suitable for this?

          You, would be able to use in the woods. The only thing is the beam must hit something to be operable.

      New Vs. Reconditioned

      What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

      Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
      • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
      • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
      • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.
