I've now used it for two jobs and although I'm generally happy, there are some areas that one should keep in mind before purchasing.
*) Many have commented on the laser line level's feet not retracting. This isn't really an automatic process - you need to manually push them in first until they click lock, then when you're ready to dismount from the wall you use the top button to release them. It wasn't obvious at first, but once I figured that out, it stayed on the wall like a champ.
*) The unit comes with 8 adhesive dots. They are that gummy stuff you find holding credit cards to the info mailing page that sticks well to everything but always rolls off cleanly. The dots that come with this have little tabs you pull to stretch/release from the laser line plate - they don't always come off as expected and I've already destroyed two. I can't find replacements sold separately or even thru Stanley's web site, but o their credit, when I emailed them with an inquiry, they sent me quite a few extra for free.
*) The stud finder is also a laser line, great for use as a line level or a cross line to the laser line level unit - but unlike the laser line level, there is no way to "mount" this, so it isn't usable as a hands-free second line level.
*) The stud finder is pretty big.Read more ›
There are cheaper units which seem to have decent ratings/reviews, but after my experience today I think I'm just going to buy a much more expensive unit to minimize the chances of going through this ordeal again.
*EDIT* I did forget to add that the laser is very good, the beam is a bit thicker than some units I've used but it's pretty powerful and reads dead on checked with mutliple household traditional levels. It would be nice if there was a marking notch or something like some units offer, but as a laser lever it's not a deal breaker. I didn't use any of the sticky pads, but I do think it's a great idea instead of poking holes in a perfectly good wall... but then again if you use it as a stud finder you'll likely find yourself doing that anyway.
The stud finder is one of the more comprehensive ones I have seen, with built in bubble leveler. It has a a nice charm and it allows you to adjust for the thickness of the material you are trying to scan through. Overall, I thought this product was just fine. The other reviewers were fixated on the tabs, but did not comment on the quality of the leveler/stud-finder itself.
I am returning it today.
The only redeeming quality is that the stud sensor is good. However, I already have a stud finder which is just as accurate and was much less expensive.
