It is nice laser level that you can use for many tasks like building walls, installing tiles, cabinets, recessed lights, outlets, finish carpentry and more. It replaces my rotary laser in most cases, you can turn on only one laser beam if you don't need all of them at that time and save your batteries. Very important function of this laser is locking pendulum when is in off position it helps to save fragile parts from being damaged during transportation or if it's dropped. This laser is nice build, has a rubber grip so feels good in your hands.I could not check the accuracy on very long distance but on 20ft was 3/16" difference, should not be more then 1/8" at this distance. Comes with a nice case and a mounting bracket What could be improved: Laser lines could be brighter it is really hard to see in a day light even inside the house, enhancing glasses help a bit but not included with a laser. Horizontal level line is too high from the floor for smaller baseboard installation or if you want to start tile line low from the floor. You can not go lower then about 5-6 inches.

I had my eyes on this for a while and was able to have the super of the company that I'm working for to get one. Theirs a few good things about this laser,like it gives you a continuous line in 3 planes. Their are some improvements that I think should be made to make it a better laser like have 3 different buttons for each plane. It would also be great to get rid of the timer that shuts off the laser every 30 minutes. It's pretty useless to me especially when I'm putting up top track on a lift 20 feet in the air and have to get between pipes and duct work to put the track up and have this laser shut off on me. The on off switch should be a button on top instead of the side. The line on the horizontal gets really thick in about 25 feet which is a lot less accurate at that point. The visibility at daylight is just invisible at that point compared to other brands. If these areas are improved they will have a solid laser.

Comments about Bosch Tools Bosch 3-Plane Leveling & Alignment Line Laser:
Warning : This tool is not serviceable, when your warranty runs out (under warranty they simply replace it, provided it's not physically damaged) Bosch does not repair this tool, and no parts are available. You can verify this yourself by calling Bosch service, tell them you have a broken one that's out of warranty, in fact I believe only the rotary laser is serviced past it's warranty period, making all the none rotary lasers...disposable.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I use this level to layout shower enclosures, storefronts and all-glass entrances. The tool is a huge time saver. Pair this tool up with a laser measuring tool and jobs that took two or even three people to measure can be measured quickly and accurately by one person. Its worth every penny. My only complaint is that the laser is not bright enough for use outdoors on very bright / sunny days.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I bought this tool a year ago. The old school method I used to use was a water level. I went from that to a pointer laser level. The pointer laser level was an improvement but this is incredible. I had a stand up cabinet that needed to be installed into a hole. I set up the laser with all its lines running and was able to look at every aspect of the cabinets level points. Incredible tool.
exactly what I needed

This line laser is well worth the money, i only wish it had a fine tune adjustment for side to side. also i would give up some of the battery life for an extended range. Or rechargeable, that would be sweet!
All squared up
from Houston, TX, United States
Since the purchase of this tool I have been able to square walls faster and super straight! Being able to see three plains helps in so many ways. My tile jobs are a snap now. And the ability to hang from the wall makes it super easy hang ceiling grid for acoustic ceilings. The mounting pole is my next purchase and then set up is going to be even less time consuming. Great tool ! Thanks.

Great Warranty for a Great Device
from Rochester, NY
I bought my first GLL3-80 a little less than two years ago. It worked great and was accurate as a horizontal level and square line laser until it went off-level a few monthas ago through regular, gentle use. The 2 year extended warranty (if you register your product) proved very handy as the horizontal leveling went off (about 1/4" over 20 ft) just before the warranty expired. After obtaining an RMA and returning the unit per Bosch's instructions, I expected a repair but got what appeared to be a new unit.
Best investment ever!!
from Vermont, United States
I have been a remodeling contractor for 40 years and work by myself mostly. I purchased this laser 1 month ago for a job resetting a suspended ceiling. The ties had not been installed properly and were sagging badly. Using the GLL3-80 made resetting the ceiling a breeze, allowing what can be a tedious job move very quickly. The lines were easy to read use in the gage that was in the kit. Some have found navigating through the menu tedious, I did not find it bad at all once you get used to it. I have since used it to set partition walls and install kitchen cabinets. I should have purchased one years ago.
from Oakland County, Michigan, United States
This tool helped me save a lot of time leveling and plumbing the projects I have been working on. I am very happy with this tool, how it works and the added ability it provides.
I am a renovation carpenter and this laser is a real time saver. I is very helpful with flooring and framing layout. the line is a bit dim in daylight, and seems to get kind of thick after 20 feet or so. that seems to be the only downfall.
