Fast and accurate – 60ft Ultrasonic Tape Measure With Laser Pointer Reviews

posted by srluciana on 04/29/2009 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
It saves time when measuring large places, specially when you are alone.
Easy to use functions as memory, area and volume.
The blue light panel is very cool.
The laser helps pointing places for instructions, but not to accurately check where the ultrasound is reflecting.
Very cheap.
Cons:
The laser doesn't indicate the real spot where the ultrasound goes, so if you're not aware of it you can get a wrong measure reading.
The built quality isn't great but is OK.
The ultrasound sensor is so small that causes an error when the opposite wall isn't paralel to the measurer, because the ultrasound reflects out of the sensor.
Other:
If you need an ultrasonic measurer then you'll find this one useful.
It's not so easy to measure when the walls aren't paralel, but you get used to it.
Bottomline:
If you need an ultrasonic measurer buy it, it's very cheap.
