Leica Distro Meter, only cheaper...

This laser measuring tool is a "Must have" type device. I have a Leica Distro meter (4X the cost) and have used it for a couple of years. The New Ryobi Laser meter has most of the same features for about 1/4 the cost. It's accuracy is on a par with the more expensive Leica, and it has a rechargeable battery and charger that the Leica model I have doesn't. I have used both side by side, find this to be really great little tool for the price. It will display the measurements in several modes, i.e., meters, inches and fractions, feet and Inches and fractions, and feet and tenths of feet. The display is back lit for easy viewing in dim conditions, and as with the Leica models, you can select the measurement from either the front edge, or the back edge of the meter. It will perform indirect measurement calculations for angled measurements too. Accuracy is typically +/- 1/16 inch, even if measuring out to it's limit, of ~ 150 feet. This meter uses a phase modulation technique to resolve the distance. The visible laser beam is what makes the measurement. (This is not a reflected sound meter, which are far less accurate).

I was a bit hesitant to purchase this since I've used a sonic distance measuring device in the past was was never pleased with the accuracy or repeatability. Since I've never had problems returning items to Home Depot and since the sensor of this didn't look like the sonic devices I decided to give it a try. I'm glad I did. This device WORKS, and works well. It is as accurate as my tape measure, but much easier to use and has a lot more measuring capabilities. What the laser illuminates is what it measures distance to, and it doesn't matter if there are objects nearby, this device will read between them. That was my biggest complaint with the sonic measuring device. Literally as soon as the laser beam transitions from one surface to another, the measurement accurately changes, including 25 feet away transitioning from a handrail mounted to the wall versus the wall.

I am a residential real estate appraiser and I use this laser distance measuring tool every day. It is very dependable and accurate. I previously owned a Stanley Fat Max laser measuring tool, but it used AAA batteries that would lose their charge more frequently. Although the Ryobi is a bit larger than I like, I prefer to have a good quality rechargeable battery with a longer life. This tool is very accurate, and I occasionally use it for home improvement projects as well.
Pros: Easy to Use, Sturdy, Accurate, Durable, Strong, Light Weight, Long-Lasting
Cons: too large to fit in pocket.

I love this thing! I use it at work for quick dimensions and I can trust the readings I get because you can see exactly what you’re aiming at. I gave a rating of 4 stars only because some times if I tap the end of the device to hard against whatever I’m shooting from, the battery gets dislodged and I have to take the cover off to push the battery back in. At first I thought the special battery would be a problem (they should have used standard batteries instead) but the battery provided last a very very long time between charges.

When I take a listing I have to measure and computer square feet for each room and compute a total. This product does it all. It works like it supposed to and I highly recommend it to all.
