Works well, plan to use regularly
Used to hang a long row of white boards at a business, worked great! Only issue was that the tri-pod did not extend tall enough. Had to find a table to set it on.

Solved a big problem, for me
I used a board as a rod, & used this laser to shoot grade on fill dirt I'm putting in yard, to make a wheelchair ramp. If a person has a bit of knowledge about surveying, could use this product for a lot more things then it was entended to do. Great product, would buy again in a heartbeat.

If you want to know if the job is level.
I set it up, but haven't used it outside of the basement yet. I install cabinets and will be able to comment later after I do another job, but I am
100% confident that the machine will do great just from setting it up.

Great Buy for the Money
As soon as the delivery guy dropped it off the kids (14 and 15) had it out set up and were sending me pics of it (I was still at work). So the setup is easy, leveling is easy and as accurate as you can get it with bubble levels. Inside it works great, outside... not bad.. but you have to wait for overcast or evening to see it very well even with the included glasses. But I would not think they would turn a brighter laser over to the general public for safety reasons (shining them it pilots eyes, etc). All in all, this is a very good level for your average do-it-yourselfer and around the house... contractor though.. not so much because you will be working mostly in full sunlight. Most of my "after work work" is done in the evenings anyway, so the dim laser is not much of an issue.

Rotary Level
For a manual leveling laser, this is an OK devise. There appears to be a second laser dot at all times. It is much smaller so easy to differentiate for the one your supose to read. If your going to use it outside need to use it in low light. The stand is flemsy when you extend it fully. Reconditioned unit is as good as new.
