Customer Reviews
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great Instrument, Hampered By +/-1/32" Accuracy Last year, I purchased two GLM 50's for the students in a University class I teach on the survey and documentation of historic buildings. While the instruments are durable and easy to use in all conditions, the students struggle with the +/-1/32" accuracy: PROS: 1. Ease of use 2. Durability 3. Brightness of Laser 4. Screen Size 5. Features 6. Value CONS: 1. Accuracy--I purchased this instrument fully aware that it's stated accuracy was +/-1/16", which is more than enough accuracy for the survey work I do in the field. However, the instrument reads dimensions to the nearest 1/32"! I don't know anyone in the construction industry (with the exception of VERY specialized trades) that would want or need dimensions to the nearest 1/32" out in the field. One would think that accuracy could be adjusted/selected as a setting within the programming on the instrument--+/-1/8" or +/-1/16"--but BOSCH Engineering tells me no. Not only is +/-1/32" accuracy not needed by the vast majority of the construction industry, it actually makes survey work difficult! 2. Size of Numerals (Read-out) on Screen. While the screen is plenty bright, it is still hard to read at times outside. (This issue appears to have been resolved by BOSCH in the newer GLM 50 models). In summary, I would recommend the instrument--and highly--if it was not for the issue of the +/-1/32" level of accuracy, which is greater than what was stated on the literature, on this website, and is typically far beyond what is needed by the construction industry for field work. BOSCH--please fix this systemic flaw!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from measurement with ease AMAZING!!! Cant believe the technology my job is much easier with this can even double check measurements in half the time! Waterproof holds up to most abuse. Light weight and durable runs on two triple A batteries. Has auto shut off when not in use! It does 5 measurements length volume...ect . You have to buy it amazing! Its is so easy I am a woman and I too can use it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cuts time in half I use this primarily at work when doing a quick as-built for homes and buildings. Using the laser measure cuts my time in half and beats dragging a noisy tape measure across peoples houses and knocking things over.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tool Box Asset Very handy item to have in the tool collection. Easy to use, good on batteries, accurate and faster than its predecessor the DLR165. The back light is also an improvement adding to its usefulness. Especially good deal found on clearance.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Useful Tool I have had this tool for just over a year now (purchased Dec 2014). I purchased it for my job as a home, farm, and commercial insurance inspector as we have to get exterior and interior measurements of the building we are inspecting. Pros: It is very handy, just point the laser and hit the button. The device allows you to select if it measures from the front, rear, or the mounting screw so your measurements are not incorrect. You can use the trigonometric function to measure a wall that you cannot easily access by hitting the end of the wall at a 90 degree angle then "completing the triangle" by pivoting around the tool and hitting the other end of the wall with the laser. You can add and subtract measurements also. Cons: It is very quick at getting the distance, although will take longer if your hands aren't steady (I lay it on a clipboard that I'm holding to help steady it). The laser is occasionally difficult to see in bright sunlight on light colored surfaces. How it functions after a year: After a year of moderate use (in the extremes of Wisconsin weather) it will sometimes randomly turn off, the only way to get the device to turn back on is to smack it with light force. This is not a big problem but it can be annoying. It may just be an isolated incident with my individual device, it's life and it happens, so I'm not upset over it. Everything else on the device functions as good as day one. Final Opinion: This is a great device and it's pros and functionality greatly outway all cons. I will be replacing it with another Bosch laser measuring tool when that time comes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast, Easy and Accurate. My only problem was trying to decide which unit to purchase. I chose the GLM 50. The device is of good size, very easy to read and very accurate. I tested it several times using a tape and it was better than specifications. If you do not need the additional functions of the higher priced units, I would highly recommend the GLM 50.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great small measuring tool small enough to carry in pocket, comes with caring case (a little tight so need a bit of work to remove and then reinstall); easy to use, quick to turn on and do measurements; simple to change from feet to inches, to mm
