Editor's Review: Tool Test: Laser Measures

review date: November 1, 2008

The Trimble HD 50 and Bosch DLR165 tools are identical, so I them together. Although easy to use and priced attractively, these tools lack a few refinements I’d like to see. They don’t have the same type of memory function as the other tools. They add or subtract only consecutive measurements, and they can’t store a series of individual measurements. Measurements display only in feet and inches. If I had to choose between the two models, I would opt for the Bosch because of its lower price, but both models are a solid value, certainly better than no laser at all.
