Which laser level to buy?

51lskdA2jbLOn my home improvement blog, I have been getting many questions from my readers on which laser level they should buy for their DIY projects. I own 2 different laser levels, which I use regularly. For the past week, I have been doing a lot of research on the best laser levels because I want to suggest the best ones to you. Now some of you might be asking yourself, why do I need a laser level? And some of you might be even be asking yourself, what exactly is a laser level? Laser levels are mostly used for construction jobs, laser levels are used to align or level an object.

There are many different laser levels out there from companies like Dewalt, PLS and Bosch. Most of these are very expensive, unless you will be using a laser level everyday, you do not need to buy the expensive ones, a simple laser level will most likely do the job for you.

Below I will share some of the top laser levels that are affordable and reliable, check out the chart below.

Dewalt DW089lg Bosch GLL3-80 PLS 180
Type 360 degree Multi line Cross line
Weight 9.6 lb 7.8 lb 2.5 lb
Visibility 100 ft 65 ft 100 ft
Accuracy +/- 5 degrees +/- 4 degrees +/- 6 degrees
Battery Life 30 hours 18 hours 30 hours
Warranty 3 years 1 year 3 years

We have chosen one laser level from each company (Dewalt, PLS and Bosch). Now it is up to you to decide which laser level suits your needs. If you are looking for a more expensive and highly accurate laser level, I recommend the DW089lg by Dewalt, this laser level works really well and it is very reliable but it is a bit pricey. If you want to go with a lighter option, the PLS 180 is perfect for that, it is only 2.5 lb and is very compact.

Since I am no expert on laser levels, I suggest you do your research on all three of these laser levels to find out which is the best option for you. When you are ready to buy one of these, I suggest checking out Amazon.com, you can get some really good deals on there.

Amazon Echo Review

When we compared Amazon Echo‘s sound quality with other wireless home speakers, the Echo performance was a little underwhelming. However, this speaker includes a couple of impressive innovations in the repertoire. Rather than being just a radio speaker, this product may serve as an electronic personal assistant that may lend a helping hands when yours are full. With smartphone integration and voice-command activation, the Amazon Echo has some awesome features.

The Echo connects to your house network via Wi-Fi. You will need to download the Amazon Alexa app in your smartphone and complete the setup instructions to get the Echo up and running. This whole process only takes a couple of minutes to complete. When the setup is completed, you can now start using the Amazon Echo.

The voice interaction with the Alexa is what sets this speaker aside from others within our selection. You activate the Echo by saying the wake word, “Alexa.” You will see a blue light illuminate which lets you know that Alexa is listening. For instance, you are able to ask Alexa, “What is the weather like today?” Alexa will reply to you by telling you the weather report for your location. You can also play some music from many different sources which are compatible with Echo.

The Echo’s volume is based on a scale from 1 to 10. For example, you can tell Alexa to lower the volume down to 3 and Alexa will promptly lower the volume. Alexa can multitask too, if you are listening to music and tell Alexa to set a timer, Alexa will pause the music, process your request and then continue the music.

Amazon Echo is fully incorporated with its mobile application, in the app you can see your entire request history and also add a to-do list, which Alexa will remind you of throughout the day. This is one of my favorite features, I love how well this feature works.

One of the things that Amazon needs to improve in the future is the sound quality, the current sound on the Echo does not impress me. Sure, the Echo is loud enough to fill up a small room but compared to other wireless speakers on the market, the sound quality could use work for the next release.

Another issue you need to bear in mind is its insufficient connectivity. Wifi and Bluetooth are the only two forms of connectivity, most other speakers also offer Aux and USB.

If you are looking for home smart speakers, Echo is one great option. Amazon Echo is futuristic, practical and smarter than ever before. The Amazon Echo is priced at $179.00.
