Bosch PLR 15 Laser Rangefinder
The Bosch PLR 15 Laser Rangefinder technology provides high levels of precision every time for quickly measuring lengths and distances. Whether you’re measuring just to hang pictures the same distance apart or to see if a new piece of furniture will fit in your living room, just switch it on and off you go.
Easy to operate
The design of the Bosch PLR 15 keeps it simple to avoid a need for specialist knowledge, and instead can be used to take a measurement at the use of just one switch. The Bosch PLR 15 gives a continuous measurement which can be stopped with one press of the red button and then restarted again with another press. This simple design makes it even ideal for individuals who are new to laser measuring technology.
Accurate laser measurements
The Bosch PLR 15 offers accuracy of +/- 3 millimetres up to ranges of 15 metres regardless of the distance being measured, as the laser is beamed in a direct line towards the intended target. In comparison, rangefinders using ultrasonic technology can only offer accuracy of +/- 50 millimetres over a distance of 10 metres as the waves emitted spread wide and can hit multiple objects which all deflect and therefore can provide false results.
PLR 15 product featuresr
With dimensions of just 100 x 36 x 23 millimetres, the Bosch PLR 15 Laser Rangefinder is a small laser rangefinder, fitting comfortably in your hand and easily into your pocket. The Bosch PLR 15 is also quicker to use than a tape measure as well as more accurate and capable of greater distances. The sliding switch feature makes it a quick and simple to use tool so even those with less experience in DIY can use the PLR 15 with ease. The soft grip provides protection to make it a more robust design which gives the PLR 15 a longer lifespan, and also makes it comfortable for the user to handle.
LED display screen
The LED screen has a backlight to illuminate the display screen and make the results easy to read, as well as give the tool a modern attractive appearance. After using the hold measurement function and having restarted the continuous measurement function, the LED screen displays the previous measurement that you measured and stopped on as well as the current measurement now being taken.
Digital Measuring Tools from Bosch

Aug 2015 - A quick update after more than 6 months regular use, still on the original set of batteries and performing well, it's been used countless times, possibly one of the best things I've ever bought!
The PLR15 is for most jobs and weather conditions a direct replacement for a tape measure for most circumstances. It does need a target to point at - you can put some card if you are measure to a drop off edge. To set the PLR15 up you need to put the included batteries in; point the Bosch End away from your eyes and point at something between 15cm and 15m away. In about 1/2 a second you will know how far away the dot is. The distance (measure from the back of the device) is output on a green and black display that is easy to read in most all light conditions. Besides the switch there is one button; hold - press it and the display keeps the last measured value till you press it again. It is resoundingly metric; so if you are needing imperial distances you may want to stick with your tape measure.
On some surfaces it can take some time to settle the measurement down - I also found it occasionally floating between a few mm of the distance. As it measures the reflection of the laser beam this can happen as there are some super unreflective surfaces (like glass) that it can't measure accurately. The PLR15 does has some inaccuracies in its measurements - the manual lists it as +/- 3mm at 25C; it gets worse as the temperature deviates from that. Your existing tape measure is likely as bad (they aren't calibrated and the more you use them the worse they become so don't take it as a big negative; just don't expect it to be perfect. If you want to use the PLR 15 as a ruler; finding exactly 1.5m from your target you can slide it along the surface and the display more or less keeps up in real time (just remember it measures to the end away from the laster.Read more ›
1. The tool is very small, maybe the length of a mobile phone.
2. The screen is back lit and is nice and glossy, (would not stay glossy for long in any work place)
3. The ability to store the previous measurement is good but seem like an obvious essential feature.
4. When it works it is accurate, no getting away from that fact.
Unfortunately this is where the good points end and I must be honest and state the bad so here they are :
1. Extremely unreliable and temperamental, im on to my second product within one week, I bought mine from my local B&Q and had it replaced only 4 and a half ours ago, after testing this laser on very basic short distances, door frames, window reveals, floor space etc the tool has failed again showing the identical ' screen flashing all icons' error.
I read in the troubleshooting guide in the manual and this particular error is indeed the official defective tool error signal and stated that the tool should be sent back to the manufacturer.
2. The build quality is poor for Bosch, if it wasn't for the screen being so nice, it would almost pass as a silver line product re-badged as a Bosch, this thing will smash to pieces if it is dropped from any height in the real world where it is supposed to be used .
4. This sort of comes under build quality, but it is too light, for me weight = reliability, even if this tool worked it should only ever be used in domestic and light applications.

I found this to be surprisingly accurate upon use.
Believe me the first 2 weeks or so you will be measuring everything and by everything I mean everything.....
I mapped my whole house so i could set-up an accurate floor plan on a mapping software.
This helps me to plan my extension for the house.
More over I am also aware of the exact dimensions to calculate the building material costs for quotations from builders (to avoid any ripoffs).....
overall very satisfied with this purchase and would recommend to all you DIY'ers (and also people who have cats).
