Works great. – 60ft Ultrasonic Tape Measure With Laser Pointer Reviews

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

Pros:
It's a real instrument, I wanted something like that for quite a while but they are quite expensive locally (starting from $200). It really looks good and works as advertised. It has an English manual. I had to do some work at the office (adding a couple of computers to the network) and this thing made measurements a breeze. It can also calculate area and volume. It's a good thing to have at home and it's much easier than a measuring tape.
Cons:
Unline a measuring tape, it won't work too well if you want to know the distance from, say, a corner of the room because it uses sound to measure distance (pretty much the way bats do it) and the sound will reflect from the corner the wrong way. But the pros overweight the cons for me.
Other:
Bottomline:
It's a well-built instrument anyone should be glad to have, I can tell you it's not fair it costs so little. It could easily cost $150. Thanks to DX for the incredible price!
