    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Measures well, but always resets to default measurement mode This laser distance tool works and measures well, so maybe I'm being overly harsh by giving it 3 stars, but it has one very annoying operating feature to me: It resets to its default measurement mode and reference after EVERY measurement. For example, if you want to take measurements with the reference from the front of the unit, you have to choose that reference after every measurement. Similarly if you want to measure something other than straight distance (area, volume, pythagoras, or stake out measurements), you have to put it back into those modes after every single measurement. (I did contact Makita tech support to make sure this wasn't just operator error on my part.) So this is a nice tool to use if you are using the default settings (measurements from the back and distance), but gets really annoying if you are taking many non-default measurements. If the above doesn't bother you, then I can recommend this tool. It measures up to 80 meters (262 feet), and seems to do that well. It's accuracy with "favourable" conditions is 1.5mm / 0.06 in, and in "unfavourable" conditions (non-white target or extreme temperatures) is still 2.5mm / 0.10 in. It operates on two AAA batteries (included, but not a brand I've heard of before), which makes it lighter than other laser distance tools I've used. Tech support told me that Leica is the company that actually makes this for Makita. It has a tripod mount built in (useful for long measurements where's it's hard to hold it steady). It also has a flip-down lever that at 90 degrees allows you to measure from the end of a counter (or shelf or whatever), and it can flip to 180 degrees to allow you to measure from a corner where you couldn't otherwise fit the unit in. Electronically it can measure area, volume, a couple of modes using the Pythagorean Theorem (measure the height of something away from you by taking one measurement level, and the others from the top/bottom of the item)--although as mentioned before, you have to reselect any of these modes after each measurement. It has memory for 20 measurements, and can do maximum/minimum readings (so if your hand is a little shaky, you can take several reading and choose the most accurate one). Following are my list of minor gripes: 1) Some things in the operation weren't intuitive to me. The unit comes with a paper quick start guide, but to get an actual instruction manual you'll either have to use the included CD or download it from Makita. One of the things that wasn't intuitive to me was how to change the units of measure. I finally figured out that to do this you have to hold the scale button with the laser OFF (if the laser is on, this doesn't work). Thankfully the unit of measure setting is sticky, so once set you don't have to reset it following a power-off or anything. 2) The otherwise-nice velcro-close case that comes with the unit (and has a velcro-attach belt-loop to put on your belt) has the sides open at the top and bottom, which means the case isn't even close to dust-proof. So while it's convenient to use, I don't think the tool will stay very clean in the case around dust. (I'd hate to think how much dust could get in after a few cuts around a circular saw.) 3) Message codes are numbers, and the only way to know what they mean are to look them up in the manual (on CD or downloaded). For example, if you try to measure something that isn't very reflective (like black metal), you'll likely get a "255" displayed. You have to look that up to see it means "Received signal too weak, measuring time too long". It would be nice if they could include a quick-reference lookup on the quick start guide or the tool itself (or include text descriptions as we are used to from our smart devices). So in summary, I find the fact that the reference point and measurement mode reset after every measurement a huge annoyance, but otherwise think this is a quality product that works well.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A bit large, but very capable unit This unit is awesome. It has all the bells and whistles you would want out of a laser measuring device, The LD080P comes with the unit, a carrying case with belt loop, and two AAA batteries. It has a quick-start guide and a cd-rom with instructions and interactive guides. It's really annoying that you have to load the cd-rom to get full access to the users manual, but the quick-start is just that. The unit itself is very rugged and fits snugly in one's hand. It's a bit large, probably unnecessarily. It has a timer built into it and lots of features including memory. It can be adjusted to measure from the front of the unit, from the rear, or from the tripod attachment (about 2/3 the length of the unit). The tripod mount is a nice touch, and it also has guide that flips out so you can center it in a corner, or square it to the edge of a wall or board. It will calculate square meters, perimeter, and even calculate the layouts of studs. It has an angle feature that will allow you to measure the height of a wall, door, etc, from a distance, or from resting on the floor. The unit it back-lit and makes audible beeps when you press a button, each of those features can be turned off. The memory retains its data even after you turn the power off. One feature that I don't like about this is that, in order to reduce the number of buttons, to get to some features you have to either click them multiple times in succession or hold a button down for at least 3 seconds. The unit by default measures in meters. To change it to feet you have to hold the unit button down for 3 seconds and it switches. If you just click the unit button once, it changes where the calculations start from (front, back, tripod, as mentioned above). Regardless, you'll get used to the quirks of the interface. What I'll have the most difficulty adjusting to is the size of the unit. If it were smaller it would be perfect. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great In All Conditions But Bright Sunlight This laser distance measurer has proven itself to be very accurate, producing consistent results. It has a nice display, is easy to switch between units, has a memory of recent measurements, is very comfortable to hold, and its user interface is pretty intuitive. I've used this numerous times without incident inside, and it greatly expedites the process of calculating the square footage of a room or house. The only downside I've found to this product is that in bright sunlight, the laser wasn't visible at distances further away than 25-35 feet. It will still accurately provide the distance to a point past where you can see the laser (you have to track the laser on the ground toward the object for as far as you can see it to line it up, otherwise it's hard to know what its pointing at), but I've not been able to get a daylight reading greater than 40-45 feet away outdoors. At dusk it quickly provided the distance to a tree in my backyard over 120 feet away, but it was unable to do so during the daytime. However, outside of bright sunlight conditions, I've had no issue with this device. It's worked flawlessly both indoors and in dim or dark outdoor conditions. As long as you don't plan on using it primarily in brightly lit outdoor applications, I think you'll be happy. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
