We do independent laser distance meter reviews to find the best measuring tools that we can recommend.
What is important for a good laser rangefinder?
- Ease of use
- All necessary measuring functions for particular application
- High measuring accuracy
- Handling, fits in your trouser or jacket pocket
- Good value for money
The laser rangefinder review checks these features that are required for a good rating. Besides the practical handling, measurement range, accuracy and further features are important for the evaluation in the review.
What kind of information about laser distance meters can you find here?
On the one hand there are reviews and test results for several common distance measurers. We list the advantages and the disadvantages for each measuring tool we review. So you can get an own impression, which device is best for your needs. There are winners chosen in different price ranges that we recommend. There are tools of the leading manufacturers Bosch and Leica in the reviews and comparisons. Leica Geosystems presented 1993 the first hand held laser meter on the Batimat in France, and was awarded the Batimat Innovation Prize. One of the remarkable and revolutionary features of this first Leica laser generation was its accuracy and reliability.
On the other hand, you will find many useful hints and tips about laser distance measuring technology. The topics also include the operation of the laser rangefinder. There are opinions and useful tips for the practical application of laser distance meters: How do I measure exact right angles? What measurement range and accuracy are required for a handyman or a craftsman? For which jobs and fields of work are the distance measuring devices valuable?
In the end we would like to define what information can not be found here: The site deals with laser distance meters as “tools” . There are no reviews of laser devices for playing golf (to measure the distance to the hole), for hunting (distance to the deer) or for military applications.
What are the differences between laser and ultrasound for measuring?
The market of electronic tools for measuring distances is large. It ranges from ultrasonic measuring devices that do not provide accurate results as laser rangefinders do. We have a closer look at laser distance meters and test them. Sometimes it is not easy to distinguish between the different distance measuring devices, as some ultrasonic rangefinder use laser for pointing to the target. But it is not sure if the ultrasound measures at this target or somewhere more or less close. Therefore laser distance meters are more accurate and precise because they use laser for measuring.
