      Good value for the money
      At the recent sale price of $70 I believe this laser measuring tool is a better value than the Bosch, Fatmax and Disto alternatives. Even at the normal price of $100 it's a fair deal. Good quality construction with a size and heft that makes taking measurements fairly easy. After having a Bosch unit (until I returned it) I was pleased to find the Accutrac much easier to handle and aim. The buttons are a bit harder to push but not objectionably so. The unit doesn't feel as pleasing since it's basically a cake of soap design but I can live with that. The laser beam is parallel to the sides of the unit so I can put the unit on a flat surface and shoot to the end without having to hold it. The Bosch cannot. Excellent accuracy and repeatability. I haven't done a scientific test but my impression from a number of measurements is that the accuracy is comparable to the Bosch DLR165k. That unit is advertised to be within plus or minus 1/16". Given sag in tapes over long distances I believe this unit is more accurate than a tape suspended in air for any distance over twenty feet. Excellent display characteristics. LED backlight provides a bright display with excellent contrast. Contrast remains excellent in bright conditions. Excellent screen layout. The last three measurements are always available on the screen to help determine repeatability. Min/Max measuring capability allows measuring in situations where you need the distance to the nearest or farthest points. This mode is useful but problematic. I find many situations where the continuous mode hangs up and requires a bunch of jiggering to get going again. Better than nothing but not trouble free. All common measuring units. Decimal feet, feet/inches/fractions, decimal inches, fractional inches, meters and millimeters. The Bosch does not provide fractional inches. Conversion can be done on all displayed measurements by pushing the button until the units you want appear. Length, area, volume plus single and double hypotenuse calculations. This unit beats the Bosch by providing the double hypotenuse for calculating a distance when you can't stand in line with one of the edges of a structure. It's a rough and ready technique but can be handy - especially for elevations that are above and below your observation point. With the exception of the "staking" feature the Accutrac provides all the calculations of the Disto D2. Excellent add and subtract capabilities. Subtraction allows measuring items that don't have a vertical back edge such as a free standing kitchen island. Shoot from the front edge of the island to a wall behind it. Put the unit in subtract mode and shoot from the back edge to the wall. The displayed difference will be the length of the island. There are many times this simple technique can allow the Accutrac to make measurements that would otherwise require a tape with a hook. Laser intensity is the same as the Bosch. Difficult to see in bright conditions. I would love to see a 5 mw green laser version of this unit. Unit forgets all settings when turned off. This is a drag and totally avoidable. Especially since the default measurement mode is decimal feet - an unusual method for carpenters and builders.

      buy a different unit, if you need accurate measurements

      These type units are terrific for people that work alone, when the units work......  First, I had a $99 Bosch unit, which worked great for 2 weeks, very accurate and easy to use, then it died.  So, I got another name brand unit because the Bosch was out of stock, but it had terrible accuracy, being off more than an inch on measurements under 10ft was normal....  I returned it the same day I bought it and went across the mall to Sears.  I have very recently bought several of very nice Craftsman tools in the C3 portable 19 volt line.  The c3 hammer drill is wonderful....  

      The store that I went to only carried this Craftsman model and no laser measuring devices, so I thought that this Craftsman might be the thing I needed. I didn't know that Craftsman had a laser measuring device.  It's a nice unit, with lots of features, but it wasn't any more accurate than the previous brand X unit that I returned, being off an inch or more on a simple 5' to 6' test.  Needless to say, I'm very disappointed.  I have some Craftsman tools that are over 30 years old and still in good working condition. I expected a tool with the Craftsman name on it to be an accurate tool, at least within the accuracy specified, which was much less than 1". I need accurate measurements for cutting lumber.  If I only needed a guess, I can do that without spending $100.

      To be fair, this unit may be defective and I got the last one that they had, so there isn't another one for me to try in the store.  So, this one is going back tomorrow and I'll buy something else.

      Laser Measuring Tool

      When opened, it appeared that the package containing the tool had been opened already and the instructions were missing. This is a technical tool and the instructions are vital.

      Piece of junk

      I've had mine about six months and it just quit working. I've used it maybe a dozen times. It never would work in the daylight and never over a hundred feet. It was accurate when it did work. It gets the distinction of knowing that it was the last Craftsman tool I'll ever buy..
