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

Pros:
* The unit is fast at delivering results. * Multiple measures can be taken (length, area, volume) automatically. * Supports both metric and imperial measurements. * Has a low powered laser pointer so you know where you're pointing. * Built in spirit level to help get accurate results. * Large easy to read LCD screen * Comes with a battery for instant use. * Takes widely available 'square' 9v batteries * Lightweight
Cons:
* No back-lit LCD, it won't be any good in low light situations. * Construction is solid, however this would not go well in a trades man's bag, and would likely get damaged. * No safety pouch included * It's a bit chunky. This is probably because of the ultra sonic generator and long tunnel to keep the "beam" focussed.
Other:
Some sort of carry pouch would be nice. I'll be using the unit for work, and I'd like to keep it looking nice. 3rd party pouches often don't fit very well. I don't know how accurate the device is yet. I'v yet to double check the measurements with a tape measure, however it appears accurate from a visual inspection.
Bottomline:
If you need to measure length, area or volume quickly and painlessly, then you can't go past this. It's cheap (compared to local Australian prices), well built and surprisingly useful. If you need one, buy it.
