Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 29reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Time saving tool! I recently bought the GLM 50 for a specific job. Before bidding I needed to measure each room in a large commercial property, some of which were much longer than any tape measure I own. This laser distance measurer worked flawlessly...just aim and read the display. That's it. It really is that simple.The more advanced features are straight forward as well as the display makes it clear which value you are inputting.It seems to be built very well. Adding a back-lit display seems like something you wouldn't necessarily need, but after having the feature, I wouldn't be able to live without it.If I had to choose something to improve it would be the carrying case. It is snug around the unit and requires two hands to push the measurer in. (but it won't fall out!) I would also prefer a clip like a tape measure has on the back instead of a velcro strap that must be hooked around a belt. Neither of these case related issues alter my opinion of the purchase though, but they are minor complaints. March 11, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Extremely accurate and easy to use Great for indoor use, not so good for outdoor use as laser dot disappears at about 50'. January 11, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Accurate and Simple This laser measuring device is simple to use and extremely accurate. I've used it regularly for approximately 6 months, usually to measure rooms during remodels and installations. It is very useful for measuring dimensions such as for window coverings where it is necessary to accurately and efficiently obtain multiple "inside" dimensions. January 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by easy to use Im very happy with this distance finder, it is extremely easy to use and accurate. Its a great time saver, I'm actually give them as gifts this Christmas. October 18, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent bargain This tool paid for itself on the first few estimates I brought it to. I bought mine at Home Depot at a great price. Simple to use and very accurate + it makes me look very professional. September 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Used for a layout Nice product - made my life 12,000x's easier when I was trying to do a layout of my building for sale. I like how accurate it is, and it's versatile - you can measure from the back of the unit, or the front. Bosch thought about the end user in this product, and gave us something that will be useful forever. September 3, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Need fast accurate measurements? I bought this to do measured drawings of a house I am remodeling. I could not be more pleased with the results. I use it all the time and it is much better than a tape measure and a lot faster. July 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great addition to tool chest Great to have when measuring around the house. Has saved me a ton of time in getting ready for a kitchen remodel. A must have and would definitely recommend! July 25, 2014
