I'm a electrician, I use this to make sure all my electrical boxes are at the same height and my recessed lights line up straight no matter what the rough an uneven the ground is. But this is good for any job that requires a straight line whether horizontal or vertical, like framing, hanging pictures up, etc.
The unit comes with its own case so was able to toss into my tool bag without any worry of scratches to the lens and the size and weight was negligible. A simple slide switch on the side turns it on or off. The button on top changes from a crosshair to horizontal to vertical beam and back again. If your level is beyond the 4 degrees allowance in tilt, the laser will blink/flash indicating that it is not level enough. If it is very unlevel, say you forgot to turn it off and you put it back in the case and toss it back in to the toolbag than the light won't even go on. The head can swivel from side to side so you can get the same height all the way around the room. it can also slide forward or backward, but I have not really found and good use for that.
Unfortunately this great tool has a very big negative. The magnetic bracket it comes with is very weak for the weight of this tool. On a flat metal surface, the magnet barely hold itself up and not even that if the head id slid too far out. I tried putting it on a round metal pipe and it could not even stay on. I had my level attached to the door frame on a metal stud by magnet, my boss was hammering at the opposite side of said wall connecting to the doorframe about 7 feet away. He was not hammering very hard but the vibration was strong enough to shake the level loose and it fell on the floor. So if your at a construction and using the magnet this tool came with, make sure you working by yourself. I have not used it outdoors, so I can not give an accurate performance of it abilites outside. My boss has his own laser level, I forgot the brand, it came with its own magnetic bracket. His could stick to a metal pipe. Said pipe can be held in different angles and the level would not fall off even when it is upside down or spun around. Mines on a flat metal stud can not even handle a 20 degree tilt before falling off, let alone holding the stud so that the level is upside down.
Despite this big negative, the unit is self is great. Worth the cost despite the magnet. Hence it lost a star. I just need to get a tripod and I'l be all set.
Small and pretty compact for easy storage
Easy to use
Works well indoors
There are a few cons which fall short (in itself as well as compared to the Dewalt). (1) TERRIBLE magnetic bracket. I stuck it to the most flat and ferrous surface I could find and it still slid down and rotated due to the weak magnet relative to the weight of the laser. I would just pretend it never came with a bracket, it's that useless. I don't understand some folks saying the magnet is OK - maybe they are sticking it on a surface made entirely of neodymium magnets? (2) Bad fabric case, especially when compared to the hard plastic Dewalt case. With that terrible bracket attached, it's quite a tight fit and the calibration card gets in the way since there is no separate compartment for it. But you can rectify this situation by tossing the said terrible magnetic bracket. (3) Wish the self-leveling laser heads were a bit more dampened - for example, when mounted on a tripod and me walking around the work area, the laser lines bounce around due to the vibrations of me walking.
All in all, a great laser level w/ an important feature that beats the highly rated Dewalt competition. If Bosch would improve some of the supporting features, it would be even a better buy.
For professional use, I would want a stronger laser beam. I suspect that an outdoor project on a sunny day and over long distances would be difficult. But for the homeowner who has the luxury of waiting for evening or an overcast day to mark the laser line, this is the one you want. For indoor projects the line is always quite visible. I've only used the level on a tripod, so I can't comment on the value of using the magnet base mounting.
