This little hand-held sight level was the perfect addition to my field marine biology equipment list. My students use these with vertical elevation poles to measure heights of locations in the intertidal zone relative to tidal height. It works well for this purpose.

The unit admittedly is lightweight, plastic, and even feels cheap in your hand. But it does the job, as long as you don't have to be too precise. I found to be accurate to within +/- 1-2 cm over a distance of 10 meters or so. Plus if you are on a budget, as most of us are, the price is definitely right!

The sight itself includes a simple horizontal bubble-level mechanism and a mirror that reflects the bubble into the view direction. The bubble is quite large compared to the view field, and you have to estimate where the mid-line is, but, as I said before, it's adequate for many jobs. For example, this unit would work just fine if you wanted to make sure that a fence line was level, or similar jobs. It would not, however, be adequate for survey work, or sighting over long distances. A laser level would be greatly preferred for that kind of work.

This unit does a good job for what I needed to do, and at an affordable price.

4 solid stars.

Easy to train personnel, durable design. Nice view of grading object and level simultaneously. Crews liked having this tool better than a laser level.

It's inexpensive--and functions ok. It has the very basics for a sight level. A note about use with corrective lenses: there are a few options. First, note that the eyepiece has a very narrow (< 1mm) aperture to look through. There's something of a pinhole effect, so you may find that you can see well enough without glasses if you normally use them. Or you can wear the glasses normally and still see enough to function with it--you can also hold one lens in front of the level. None of these three options will get you to 20/20, but you probably don't need that. I don't know whether presbyopia would be a problem with this or not.

The 4-star rating is based mostly on price. If I had spent more, I might have expected more. But it delivers good value, especially so if you just want this for semi-casual use.

Does not give the best view of the object you are sighting at, but as a cheap, rough in sighting level, it works fine. It is compact and light.

I bought several of these levels for a golf course rating team. One of the levels didn't get used right away, so when I removed it from its packaging about a year after purchase, the liquid in the level had disappeared, making the level useless. But I used one of the "working" levels and it worked very well.

Using a level in the window of view like shooting with a pistol accuracy compared to rifle is a little less stable but for its size and or sticky tape to a ruler and its awesome. either way when the bubble is centred at any point around you the level indicators will remain constant. very worth the money cost 13$ landed in greece 26$ september 2014

Nice to "eyeball" a level, but it is no substitute for a real builder's level. The bubble is a little hard to see, and the unit is a lot smaller than it appears. It has a flat bottom so it will sit on flat surfaces for hands-free operation.
