I bought one of these for 99p at our 99p store a year ago.

Voting cold as its not full HD and a rip off at £1.00 when you can pick it up much cheaper at a 99p store.

Actually they aren't bad for a quid even if its just to pull it apart and use the laser for other things

Please don't buy it!!

I bought one months go from poundland.
The laser is not straight so its useless. My son has it glued onto his plastic gun as a laser sight

Eh? Does it bend? ;-)

Also, on a more serious note, how old is your son? No chance of him 'seeing what happens' if he points it in his or a friends eye I hope!

How can a laser not be straight?

Ru--ish, you get what you pay for

Cause the glue the laser part in at an angle that's why, it ain't a bendy beam of light.
And if its not glued in straight it is not going to be straight when you put it on a flat surface. If you don't have enough common sense to understand that, i'd suggest maybe you avoid DIY.

Obviously have a defective one, I got one as a joke Christmas present a year or two back ( My tools all got nicked from a site I was working on) and it's 100% level, I check the line with another level to be sure after I mark up but to this day it's always been perfect it's quite handy.

voted HOT!!! it's the same price as a a but ticket for 3 stops down the road, but it keeps giving. :thumbsup:

In fact I put up a coat rack 2 days ago with it, and it's level!!

Cheap for a laser, but they are rubbish at whay they are supposed to do.

correct- how good is a laser level for a pound going to be?

Would these be any good for 'taking out' ants?

You should have more sense than to let him do that. It's NOT a toy and could do real harm to someone's sight (maybe his or yours).

I have one and it's bloody good! Just put up a bathroom blind with it, found the bracket levels with the laser, then thought I'd double check with a tape measure and spirit level and it was spot on

agree, ive had a few of these and they were all like it

but surely the point of a laser level is that its level.
£1 or 1p its useless if it doesnt point level.

you used it to put something up, then you checked it was level using a measure and spirit level.
so it really was pointless using the laser level then.

the fact that you even had to check it just proves its useless

I had one of these. Laser was not straight (quite obviously)when aligned with the spirit level bubble.
Buy at your own risk, you may get a good one or a duff one.
For a quid I suppose a working one would be a good deal.

By checking proved it was NOT useless.:roll:

I recently due to job change have had to buy various tools and at first did buy cheap tools. It is false economy, i even purchased a centrepunch from wilko, now what can be wrong with a centrepunch. Well you hit it 5 times and it is blunt, Rolson and Blackspur are typical junk and i have also purchased one of these laser levels a while ago and again it is tat. Buy quality and it lasts.

What is being said about this lazer level not showing a true level is also true about the vast majority of traditional spirit levels. As the bubble phial is normally in the middle of the level you should be able to turn the it around 180 degress & it should say the same about the level. Unless it is a premium brand I bet it isn't.

A traditional level can often have it's phial "packed" with a bit of plastic etc. at the low end to make it show level whichever way it is turned. Can these be similarily "adjusted"?

Anyone explain how this works if it is hand held? No one has that steady a hand! And if you put it on a surface then you have to have the surface at the same height as you are installing your curtain rails or fittings etc. A big pile of books and a plank of wood might help here but it isn't going to be level! These really are toys!

What?
I never paid for this!!!!

Not really, It was easier to leave a laser measure line going along the wall while measuring with a tape measure, I just held a spirit level to the laser line briefly to check it was level.. :whistling:

It was this 1st time I had used it and was checking it's calibration so no need to be cocky:roll:

Light travels in straight lines, so unless it projects some sort of prism feature where the beam hits a suraface, how on earth does it "wrap around corners"?
