Two negatives; the instructions to check the vertical and horizontal lines are too complicated, I don’t have the time or the desire to go through that procedure.
The box says 50ft. +- 1/8in big letters on the front cover and then down on the bottom of the box under specifications in small letters it says Accuracy: +/- 1/8 @ 33 ft. Which is it?
Probably the later (or maybe something else.
Overall this is a very useful and precise leveler, assuming it is in fact accurate.
I bought it with the Bosch tripod, which can adjust for the top of the base cabinets, the bottom of the wall cabinets, or anything in between. Also has vertical (plumb) laser or can be fixed and locked at any angle desired.
1. It has a lock on the line laser so you don't need to have it in a horizontal or vertical position for when you need to project an angle.
2. It also locks the pendulum mounted auto leveling laser so it is less susceptible to damage when moving it around.
3. It has two different mount threading’s on the bottom so it can work with the bigger 5/8’s rotary style tripods as well as smaller ¼ camera style ones. I had to buy a converter for my other laser to work on my Bosch tripod.
Another nice touch on this is it has a place for a spare set of batteries. It's also smaller than some of the competitors if that is important to you. I checked the line width against another brand and they were equally accurate (or inaccurate if you are a pessimist) with the same width. Overall it’s a great value relative to the other models on the market given it is $20+ less than the most popular competitor.
