Doesn't last.
I used this primarily to lay floor tile. It worked for a little over a year and then wouldn't turn on. Replaced the batteries and the unit still did not work. The Dewalt service center informed me that since I'd had it more than a year and Dewalt had not informed them of any defective parts in the unit, there wasn't anything they could do. I'm not sure how Dewalt can tell you there aren't any issues if they don't even look at unit. Read the warranty information very carefully.

Dewalt Laser
Have used it for a couple of years. My ONLY fault with it is that the on/off switch on mine is very stiff and it needs 2 hands to turn it on which then moves the tool.
In fact it was so stiff the slide piece broke off after about 2 months of use.
Other than that I have no qualms with it

Easy to use with a camera tripod
I had never used a laser level before. My first use was to mark studs with our planned kitchen counter-top level and cabinet and shelf heights. I was very pleased with how easy it is to keep marking each next stud after getting one carefully measured 'benchmark' line. With a good tripod it is very easy to adjust for the next line. It would probably be difficult without an adjustable tripod.

How would this work to hang art?
bill on Aug 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It would be perfect. Keep in mind that a cross line will give you a level line at the height you set the unit. You can't project at an angle up or down. If you don't have a way of raising the unit on a level surface, you can project the line on the wall and measure up to the height you want to end up at. For a plumb line, make sure you are as perpendicular as possible to the surface you are projecting onto so as not to get a false plumb reading.
