    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    This device is surprisingly accurate. You can constantly measure, update speed is quite good.
    You can easily calculate area/volume, also you can add, subtract and store measurements. Auto turn-off, same for laser pointer it has.0,5 - 10m measurements easily and quickly done.
    Build quality is acceptable, nothing too fancy but nothing bad about it either, it's rather good.

    Cons:

    Hard to measure distances greater than 15m because you have to hold device at right angle, further away you are harder it gets to get good measurement.

    OtherThoughts:

    It shows temperature when you switch it on.
    Laser pointer is hardly visible in daylight past 10m.
    Anything in the path of ultrasonic waves will reflect and cause error in reading. Very lightweight. Need to use laser to make sure you hold it at right angle, and avoid error readings.

    Bottomline:

    It could have more range, but that's where you need more expensive laser measure. In ranges up to 10m works exceptionally well, higher than that you need to be a bit more careful. If this devices capabilities meet your requirements you can safely get one.
