Usefull in appropriate cases – 2.0" LCD Ultrasonic Range/Distance Meter with Laser Guide (0.5m~18m/1*6F22) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
- Quick measure
- Stable results in appropriate cases (see cons)
- Has different useful modes (length, square, volume, sums of sequence measures)
- Has the level built in (helps get more exact results)
- Nice beeper
- Informative LCD (shows measuring mode; shows what dimension you're measuring now)
- Good built
Cons:
- Works fine with empty rooms only. Any object in measure sector (which gets wider with longer distance) can distort results
- No backlit
- Laser guide cannot be switched off (in some cases it useless though)
Other:
It has noticeable size. Evidently it's not due to device specific. I believe it was made intentionally for better usability.
Bottomline:
Very useful tool when you apply it to appropriate area (for example for measuring interior of almost empty building). In some other cases simple tape measure much more useful (for example you can't measure road width with this device).
