      Very accurate

      I tend to buy the smaller versions of most tools. I have worked on aircraft for years where we have to carry our tools with us to where ever the aircraft is parked and a ramp tug is not always available for the ride. I had the 10" version of this level and really liked it but kept finding its short length limiting. I finally broke down and bought the 24 inch version. Man, what a difference the longer level has made. Much easier to accomplish tasks that were a struggle with the shorter level. Of course, the technology works perfectly as it did with the shorter unit so I am quite happy with this level.

      Ok while it lasts, which isn't very long

      My dad has had two of these levels in the past 3 years - both given as Christmas gifts. I gave him the most recent one which lasted as long as the first one he was given which was about 16 months. Granted, it gets a lot of use, but to only last 16 months is ridiculous.

      What has happened both times is that the digital display just quits working. No way to fix it that I've found, and seems Sears couldn't be bothered replacing it. I know it's only $60, but still - it *is* a Craftsman product. At one point that brand stood for something. Also, even from the outset, the second model seemed "touchy" and "fidgety" to get to 0 or 90 degrees, which isn't the worst thing, but sometimes it's annoying.

      So, for his birthday/Father's day, I'm looking elsewhere for a digital level. Maybe another brand will last a little longer than 16 months. Fool me once, shame on you. Foll me twice, shame on me. No more shame.

      Sensational!

      Big job for me. Working in backyard. Low budget, but wanted to get it done right. Lots of ups and downs to measure. Tried using string levels. Many errors. Invested in laser level. It didn't say "indoor only" on box. Couldn't see beam beyond 3 feet. Exchanged it for this 24" job (48293). Sensational !! Beam visible at 25 feet in bright August sun. Used my camera tripod. Easy set up with old fashioned bubble level, or LED readout for greater accuracy. Must have saved two or more days work. May never use it again, but as far as I'm concerned, it paid for itself.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      High Tech

      This has been a great level, very solid construction. You can actually measure how far out of plumb or level rather than just looking at the bubble.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Poor design

      The level works but I wanted a laser line on the wall and this model doesn't do it

      Okay depending on your needs

      For the price this is not a bad product. I'd go as far as saying its "good" but not great. It is accurate and technically speaking can be manually calibrated but it is NOT self-calibrating which is a major down side. Its strong points are that it is accurate to the 10th of a degree which is very accurate compared to the old centering the bubble technique and it has a pretty solid metal construction. It?s okay point is that it CAN be manually calibrated, though the instructions don't explain how to do this. It is tricky to figure out, but once you've done it, it is easy to repeat. I will explain how. The way it is done is find a perfectly flat surface or as close as you can get. A granite counter top or flat table top would work well. Next, shim one side of the level up (let?s say the left for the purposes of this explanation) so you know the level slopes down to the right. Be sure and tape the shim down so it doesn?t move and draw a line on it at the left edge of the level so you can line it up at the same place every time (also draw a line or place a piece of tape on the right edge of the level for the same reason). Now turn the level on and zero it out. Now turn the level around 180 degrees so it faces the opposite direction. Now take the reading. Let?s say it says + 4 degrees. (Note, since you know the direction of your slope/pitch, if it does not read + something after zeroing it and turning it 180 degrees, you have either done something wrong or you have a defective level.) So it says + 4. Take that number (or whatever number you get) and divide it by 2 (obviously 4 ? 2 = 2). This gives you the actual pitch/slop of the shimmed level because by zeroing rotating it 180 degrees, you doubled your error. Now, rotate the level 180 degrees again so it is facing the original direction with the shim under the left side and the left and right edges exactly where your lines are. It should again read 0 degrees (if it doesn't you have either done something wrong, e.g. moved it wrong, or your level is defective). Now shim the right side until the level reads + 2 degrees. Once you hit + 2 degrees, stop, tape the shim in place and zero out the level. Your level is now calibrated. Though this seems tedious, it is not very difficult and you can repeat it much quicker. I found that the level does remain calibrated when turned off and back on, but if it is bumped hard or, heaven forbid...dropped, it is going to need to be recalibrated. Be gentle with any level or it is not going to be accurate for long. The weak points of this level are that 1) it is not self-calibrating, 2) it takes a moment to solidify its readout and 3) the laser seems to me to be useless because there is no way to know if it is perfectly calibrated with the level itself (and I doubt it is). I am not a big laser person anyway. Overall, for the price it is better than other 24? non-self-calibrating digital levels on the market.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      not on the level LEVEL

      I was surprised to find find such a high rating for a product that does not do its function. It looks and feels nice, cool electronic display and a handy laser, BUT it is not accurate as a level so what good is it. Knowing that it was not accurate and not having the manual, I came here to find how to calibrate the level. . . . YOU CAN'T. The tool is virtually useless now, can't trust any of the electronic readings. Bubble level works OK, trust old school. All those 5 stars are on looks not function or ignorance on the use of the tool.

      Lousy level - BEWARE!

      Well, I like quality and am willing to pay extra for it. When I saw these levels on sale, I bought the 4 ft, 2 ft, and 10 inch models. Spent a LOT of money still, but being an engineer, I like to be accurate when I build things. All of these levels react a LOT slower than competitors models. Calibration (and lack of the ability to calibrate the unit) is terrible. When I measure something with the level in one direction and flip the level around and get two different readings after they finally stabilize. I'm about ready to just give all three away and either go back to the bubble levels or buy the competitor's product. I would never buy one of these again!!! Good package and presentation, but TERRIBLE execution of the task at hand!!!!
