The tool is simple and well thought out. It is 4 x 1.4 x .9 in (100 x 36 x 23 mm). The input controls are all achieved with one button and has a thin rubber molding in just the right places without being bulky or protruding like protective rubber bumpers on a child's toy. You can set it on surfaces, such as glass, with a steep grade without it sliding around. The COO of my laser measure is Malaysia. I have tested mine against a reputable brand tape measure which was only a few days old at the time. My laser measure reads exactly the same as the tape measure every time, down to the exact mm or 1/16" depending on which unit of measure I'm using. I was happily surprised to see this since the specs state it's accuracy "+/- â...›" (+/- 3mm)". I have mostly tested it in the 12-30' (6-9m) range on flat horizontal surfaces against right angle surfaces. I do a lot of wall layout as an art installation tech and would love to have a couple of bubble vials integrated into the body of the tool as reference for level and plumb when taking measurements. I still give it a 5 star rating since the usefulness of level or plumb only works in a limited number of scenarios but as accurately as mine reads, being out of square against a perpendicular surface could easily add length to a measurement. Since the tool is rectangular, I'm able to just hold a small level with it if I happen to need that much accuracy. Most of the time I'm able to get precise enough measurements by measuring near a parallel floor, wall or ceiling joint so it really isn't much of an issue for me. For me, the best part about this tool is being able to take precise measurements where a tape measure would be bending or sagging, which adds length to a measurement. I can be up on a scissor lift and measure a large wall from top to bottom or side to side with out any of the issues I would encounter using a tape measure and a 40' (12m) wall is just as easy measure as an 8' (2.4m) wall. This is also a fraction of the size of a tape measure which would be capable of measuring equivalent length.

I just opened the package to do an indoor measurement to prepare an as-built drawing and despite easy and simple operation the device needs to be switched off and on every few minutes due to error message! which is annoying.

So simple to use!

Comments about Bosch Tools Laser Measure:
I have been using this little tool for measuring all kinds of things, especially the dimensions of my house. This GLM-15 is so easy to use and the hold function is priceless, since I cannot always see the display in the dark or behind something. It seems very accurate and does not "hunt' for a value like some others I've tried. Very pleased!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

My little sister got this for me as a Christmas present. I've been doing a lot of framing for work lately, and now I automatically go for the laser rather than my tape. It just makes sense; it's more accurate than a tape, and saves time and often physical energy. Huge plus that it doesn't take up much space.
Best compact laser measure
I really love this product. I use this laser measurer everyday to measure all kinds of things that would be hard to measure with a regular tape measure. I don't know how I could measure from floor to ceiling, or wall to wall without this product. This has become essential and has paid for itself many times over because it saves me so much time and labor costs. Highly recommended tool for anyone, expecially electricians like myself
Works like a charm
from Illinois, United States
I bought this to use on my estimating sales calls and it works extremely well. Saves time and also brings a wow factor to the homeowners and differentiates us from the other guys.
Love it, use it every day!!
from Toronto, ON, Canada
Bought it about a month ago for estimates. Instead of measuring gas pipe runs with measuring tape I use this little gizmo! Saves a lot of time. Pretty accurate too!!!
from Hanover, PA, United States
This is a great measuring tool. It's easy to use and very reproducible. It virtually eliminates the need for a second person to hold a measuring tape for distances greater than 12 ft. The only downside to it is it's almost too small; it can be hard to find in the toolbox.
Easy to handle
from Los Angeles, CA, United States
I use this for measuring rooms for kitchen remodels and many are in construction with no lights installed which makes it difficult to read steel tape measures. We use metric dimensions which this handles. The best feature is the "square design" of the case. I can hold the end steady against a wall or the floor with one hand due to the flat bottom and hit the "measure" button without the laser moving all over. The other great feature is that it fits in my front pocket (barely larger than a cell phone) so I can easily slip it in and out as I use it. I would highly recommend this tool.
Great Time Save
from LaPlace, LA, United States
I bought this because I was planning a big job of replacing all the window coverings with Roman Shades (inside mounts). It enabled me to take several measurements of both the length and width of the windows to ensure accuracy of custom designs. I dreaded attempting this with a manual tape measure.
Best we have found!!
from Calgary, Alberta, Canada
We have worked with a lot of other brands that do the same job but between durability and accuracy none have been a good as this one.
