Product Description

Product Description

Quickly and accurately point and measure with the Skil 0530 ‘X-act’ Laser

The Skil 0530 ‘X-act’ Laser Measuring Tool is as its name tells you: precise and accurate. It is a state-of-the-art laser distance measurer that can measure distance, surface and volume with high precision at the push of a button.

The Skil 0530 features precise measuring due to laser technology Superior laser technology

The Skil 0530’s superior laser measuring technology gives an impressive performance, measuring distances from 20 cm up to 20 m, both indoor as well as outdoor, with a typical accuracy of only ±3mm.

 The Skil 0530 features a precise laser beam for measuring indoors and out


Where you point the Skil 0530 is where you measure A major advantage of using laser technology to measure is that only a small measuring surface is required. Obstacles in a room or near where you are measuring are no problem as well. And where you see the laser point is exactly where you measure.



Easy to use

Operation of the Skil 0530 is easy: just select the mode--length, area or volume--and press ‘Go’: within a second you have a precise result blinking in the large display. It has other handy features such as a memory function for adding and subtracting measurements, and the continuous measurement function for easy marking.

    I had a supposed laser measuring instrument previously, which although it used a laser to cast a spot on the wall, it actually used a sonic beam -- absolutely useless. Anything in the vicinity of the line of sight would cause major errors.

    With the Skil device, one can measure into a deep, narrow, hole if you so wish. It is a true laser measurement, and the spot is where you measure.

    It is instant in use, no time is involved when the button is pressed. It can do a single length, area or volume measurement of a room in under a minute, using the M,M2 or M3 buttons to automatically do the sums. There are also buttons which enable differential or additive measurements - M+ and M-. And everything can be done in metres or feet. On top of all that, the package is reassuringly solid. I dropped mine from a ladder (3m) and thought it would be a gonner, but no damage apart from one corner remodelled.

    It is really 'spot-on'!!

    Probably the cheapest of the decent laser measurer's, but no quality has been sacrificed. It feels sturdy and will take a few knocks.
    Laser is a little hard to see outdoors, but ive had that problem with £200+ measurer's too. I've also noticed it fails to measure if you slam it onto the surface too hard beforehand, it happens every now and again. No major issue though.

    The Skil 0530 does the basic job of distance measuring well. It is also capable of doing simple area and volume calculations, which can be handy. Where it doesn't do so well is in flexibility. You have to hold the base against one surface and point the laser at the opposite surface. If the first surface is uneven or not level then you lose a lot of accuracy because the unit has to be tilted.
    What it really needs is an extension leg with a small point that can be accurately located on to the first surface. You could then add the length of the leg on to the measured distance or ideally this would be done automatically.
    The other limitation is that you can't make the unit measure from the front (i.e. the surface where the laser is emitted). If this method was selectable then measurements of hole depths or through small apertures could be done without having to subtract the length of the unit from the reading, which, incidentally is not quoted in the instructions.

    7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Andrew Andreev on 14 July 2011
    The Skil 0530 Laser Measurer is an excellent product:
    1. Compact and easy for use (intuitive functionality)
    2. Accurate in measurement (enough precision for daily measurements)
    3. Fast in measurement (1-2 seconds per measurement)
    4. Lightweight and solid built
    5. With long battery life (including auto turn-off function)
    6. Works perfectly on daylight (the laser spot is strong enough)
    7. Optimal balance price-quality.

    With this tool you will redefine the way to measure distances, areas and volumes.
    I highly recommend this product from Skil.

    This measure is so quick to pick up and to take a measurement.

    The volume function is outstanding - click width then length and height (any order) and it displays the volume, so very quickly.

    totting up lengths is done with M+, you only need to note the total as displayed.

    The measurements can be held or continuously varying dependent on your needs.

    Great from decorating to landscaping...

    This Skil 0530 laser measure is excellent value for money,it does exactly what it claims to do.It is well built and will take the occasional drop. To go into detail would take for ever,but I am a DEA and this is ideal because of its size and capabilities and ease of use. This is the size of a large mobile phone so fits in a trouser or coat pocket comfortably, very easy to use.

    Not to be confused with cheaper and less accurate 'laser' measures that actually use a laser for alignment only, but then use acoustics to take the measurement, this was the best value true laser tape I found - in fact, it appears to be identical to the slightly more expensive Bosch PLR unit, but with the added benefit of both imperial and metric units.
    Pretty easy to use, though I wouldn't call the button array intuitive, so you really need to familiarise yourself with the instructions before playing; it does have the capability of storing a dimension to memory, to enable progressive addition of distances, plus auto-calculate areas and volumes, so quite sophisticated in that sense, but the 10 randomly arranged and almost identical buttons means you have to plan your button-push sequence, especially if you only use the device intermittently and have forgotten how to set up for a cumulative distance. However, none of the competitor devices seem any better on this, so par for the course.
    One surprising omission is the facility to calibrate the read-out - checking against a tape for smaller distances (which I know you're not supposed to do) showed a consistent error of about half a centimetre - why, and why not provide the facility to adjust this?
    So overall, good value, relatively easy to use and much better than dragging a 20 metre tape around, but a couple of slightly irritating design flaws.
