I purchased this time saving device for use in photography. For objects lacking a flat surface, I just place a piece of cardboard by the object and read off of that. This device has several functions that I have yet to explore, but, the ones that I have are awesome.
This tool is easy to use and gives pretty accurate measurement. Make sure you use the laser to see where you are aiming at or there is no obstacles in-between. I am very happy with this product.
you pay what you get - it's true most of time. the distance-meter is of great value for armatures/weekend warriors, but not for the pros. in order to have accurate reading, the device needs quite period of time to adjust to the temperature of surround environment.
this is not going to cut it if you are in hurry. other than this short coming, the device so far performs as it is intended to.
The ULTRASONIC DISTANCE METER + LASER POINTER is a perfect tool to quickly know the distance, area and volume of a room! It can measure distances in a straight-line from 1.5 Feet to 60 Feet. Your distance measurer transmits ultrasonic waves to a point you want to measure. Afterwards, it measures the time taken by the waves to reflect and then calculates and re-transcribes the distance.
