Lasers comes with so many different vairables, it's visible in the price, you can buy a laser for $ 30.00 at HD and fight with it, or pay a few thousand and the thing self levels and everything. What are your applications and frequency of use?
i am probably looking to spend cca. $100 +/-, nothing too fancy. i like to be able to project right angles against a wall without using a drywall ruler or measure the same distance on the other side, also for framing which i am about to start once concrete is done etc.
i am just your average DIY-er who loves tools and does not mind staying hungry but buying the right tool.
$ 100.00 unfortunately gets something you will be most likely fighting with and has no tolerances for being 'off'. Most good ones shut down if it gets knocked or is not precisely level. I'd recommend looking on e-bay or such and see what's available, but, expect to be around $ 200 and up for something decent
I worked for a steel stud and drywall company for a couple of years and we used pls lasers. Not the one shown, we had one with five beams(down, up, left, right, and forward) and they worked good. They stood up to the abuse of everyday use and worked great for framing up walls.
