3 Reviews for Bosch GLR225 230 ft. Laser Distance Measurer25/12/2011My first experience with laser/sonic distance measurement tools was the Straight-Line 64030. It was given to me as a gift and quickly found a place in my "unused tools pile". The problem I had with the Straight-Line was that it was not all that reliable or consistent in its measurements. That's being a bit kind; I couldn't trust the Straight-Line as it was wildly wrong about half the time. I assumed products in this category weren't ready for prime time. That was 2003.
Fast forwarding to 2011, I was eager to try the Bosch GLR225. The first thing I noticed is how well constructed the Bosch unit is. It is as durable as you would expect of a tool with the Bosch name on it. The plastic is a hard plastic that could probably be thrown out of a moving vehicle and not suffer more than scratches. This thing should hold up a long time.
I immediately started testing various measurements in my house and comparing the readings to an old-school measuring tape and the...06/12/2011Just received my GLR225 yesterday and I am very pleased!
Carpenters, architects, installers, maintenance personnel, engineers, and homeowners will benefit from this product. This tool makes quick work of measuring distances, square footage, and volume with easy to use functions.
I made four different measurements of my living room within minutes after opening the package. I checked the readings with a tape measure and found them to be within the advertised 1/16". Very impressive! Press the laser button to turn it on, click to "fire the laser," click once again to capture the measurement. Value displayed about a half second after button press, and the unit clicks to indicate you've taken a reading. I found the rubber-top buttons to be comfortable to operate and appear to be durable. I was concerned about this after reading a previous review, but they are quality and probably more moisture resistant than solid plastic buttons.
The display shows a...30/07/2010The GOOD: Bosch has definitely listened to its customer base ... They added the following features to the GLR-225:
+ Inches-only readout, in addition to the ft/in and metric units already available
+ Small bubble level, to help make measurements a little more accurate
+ Another ~50 ft distance capability (230 ft vs 165 ft for previous model).
+ Extension pin for corner measurements is now metal, rather than plastic as on previous model.
- The keypad has been changed to extremely mushy plastic buttons, which I would expect to fail much sooner than those on the previous model and on the competition's units. The buttons are very clumsy and uncertain to use, with lots of mushy travel and poor tactile feedback.
- The time to take a measurement is MUCH slower than on the previous model. It takes several seconds to respond, under even ideal conditions. The previous model would capture a measurement almost...
