Purchased this product a week ago. Used it to install 9 canned lighting fixtures in a large room remodel project. Tried the old tape measure first. Needed a perfect grid layout to be installed between trusses that were ran both 180 and 90 degrees. Had to move grid several times because the truss prints were off. The Laser tool saved the day. What could have been A nightmare turned out to be a fun project thanks to the Bosch laser. Many thanks to the engineer that designed this outstanding tool.

I'm a Union metal stud framer. Production lives or dies by the laser. If anybody were to pull out a plumb bob nowadays, they'd get laughed at. Our shops usually provide PLS 3 or 4's standard. I happened to pick this laser up just as a backup or for sidework. I will tell you that when I first pulled it out and tested ( I know how to test for plumb, I do it everyday before I put up one piece of track) from ground to a 9 foot ceiling, it was off by a heavy 16th. That was a bit much, but do-able in such a short span. I would not reccommend for spans of 20 ft or more. My main problem was that after one week of use, the base pulled out the nut that is mounted in the unit. That was with very little tension as well. I had to cut the rubber that covered the base back a little, and SUPERGLUE the nut back in. If it is off kilter on the stand, it will blink, indicating that it is impossible to achieve level. This design for the base mount is very poor in my opinion and I will go ahead and spend the extra $100 for a proper made in USA PLS3 next time. But for now, the Bosch is still holding as true as it did the first day I brought it out. Thank you for reading my review. I hope bosch does too.

Great tool to have
from Bonita Springs, FL, United States
Bought this product for work. It was a little difficult using my tape measure to find my center. I'll explain, I'm up on a ladder stretching out my measuring tape to find my center on the ceiling and next thing you know, the tape measure folds up. With the Bosch GPL 3, I made my center mark on the floor and set the laser "GPL 3" on my center mark, turned it on and shabang!!! The red dot appears and now I'm ready for the installation of a fan box. Excellent product.

The unit times out to ...
The unit times out to quickly when trying to do a layout, The laser dot washes out on all surfaces past about 5 feet. Hard to get a very accurate reading when the laser is blurred. I tried with a tape measure, folding rule, yard stick and ledger board with tape. I have used other Bosch products in the past and liked them. This GPL3 just falls way short of the quality. Would not recommend this product to any one

I haven't found a better laser level yet. Easy on battery life, and two modes for working.

Not that I use this tool everyday, but as a professional commercial electrician, I need the reliability that Bosch brings to the table with this. Quick easy and fun to use.
works like a charm!!
I purchased this product about a month ago looking for something to help me position lights in an existing space. It is an extremely useful tool and a huge time saver.
