From the manufacturer
The Bosch Quigo Cross Line Laser
The Bosch Quigo is the handy, self-levelling cross line laser from Bosch that enables DIYers to make their creative ideas a reality. The tool is ready to operate as soon as the protective cover has been slid open, projecting a perfectly aligned – thanks to the self-levelling feature – laser cross onto the wall.
The integrated incline function also gives you the means to project diagonal lines. This allows for the quick and simple alignment of drilling positions or pictures. The Quigo is also ideal for applying areas of tiling to walls
The ingenious little cross line laser
The Quigo cross line laser from Bosch is a practical aid for perfectly aligning furnishings or wall decorations.
Once the cube’s protective cover has been slid open, the tool switches on and projects a laser cross onto the wall.
The additional functions ensure that this little helper is particularly user-friendly: Thanks to the high-performance laser diode, the laser lines are exceptionally visible. The integrated incline function allows laser lines to be projected tilted to the left or right at any angle, allowing you to align banisters or apply diagonal lines and patterns to walls.
The Quigo from Bosch delivers dependable results within a working range of 7 m.
Handy, fast and easy to operate
With a size of 6.5 x 6.5 x 6.5 cm and a weight of 250 g, the Quigo from Bosch is particularly handy and compact.
Simply open the protective cover and the tool will immediately project two crossed laser lines onto the wall at an exact 90° angle.
You can quickly and easily align drilling positions on this cross. The protective cover also functions as a transport lock: In the closed state, the pendulum with the internal laser diode is automatically locked in place. The MM2 clamp provided can be fixed to any object with a material thickness of between 1 cm and 6 cm using the clamping foot and adjustment screw, such as the backs of chairs, stepladders, cupboard doors or shelves.
Even on delicate surfaces the clamp does not leave any marks. The quick-fitting adapter ensures that the Quigo can be mounted on a tripod or clamp with ease.
Precise alignment without a spirit level
Whatever needs to be done, whether hanging pictures horizontally or mounting shelves cleanly on walls, the Quigo cross line laser from Bosch is a fast and precise tool for aligning objects exactly, projecting a 100% straight laser cross onto the wall.
Simply open the cover and the horizontal and vertical lines required will appear immediately. The tool is self-levelling, ensuring that the laser lines projected are always straight. The automatic levelling mode levels out irregularities of up to ±4° in the process. If it is not possible for the tool to carry out self-levelling because of larger irregularities, the laser indicates this to the user with a flashing red LED.
Modern laser technology provides a convenient solution where you used to have to laboriously fiddle with a spirit level and pencil: This compact cross line laser offers even less-experienced DIYers the capacity to work precisely, with straight lines and a right-angled laser cross.

As far as performance is concerned, it worked for me as I had hoped; I usually stick to Bosch or Black & Decker so my 'loyalty' has once again proved worthwhile.
For me, those potential 'extras' which this level gives you are :
1. Self-Levelling (provided the level is already within 4degrees of level).
2. A multi-purpose clamp.
3. Cross-hair laser lines.
I'm not sure I understand the problem I read beforehand in other reviews about the laser lines getting 'thicker' due to the projection distance; as long as they're still well-defined, and of constant thickness, you can still use them by either using the top/bottom or (worst case) a specific distance 'inside' the line. The crucial factor with this level is that the lines ARE of constant thickness.....
Also, it works at any angle you want and then the self-levelling feature is pointless of course.
It's sufficiently lightweight to allow it to be readily located where you want by either sitting it on a surface (eg ladder step for high-up work) or using the included clamp.
I used this to set, before final fixing, the vertical and horizontal aspects of a kitchen worktop and associated supporting cupboards on a floor which was not level (in varying degrees over the area !). It was in a sunlit conservatory, but the projected lines were just about usable even when the sun was out !
The beauty of a laser level is that you are not restricted to a specific length of what you're checking as you are with a spirit level, which I would have had to move about to check all the necessary surfaces/edges involved.
Yes, you move the laser level to move the projected line about, but after it quickly self-levels I had the confidence to know it was consistent and my movement of it did not introduce any error or movement, as is possible with a spirit level for example; it's also effortless, whereas you have to hold in place a spirit level on a wall (for example) which uses up at least one of your hands !
An added bonus is that you can use a corner of the crosshair to confirm a vertical/horizontal section at the same time. I used a step ladder to rest the level on and adjusted the height of the projected line by adding/removing small amounts of notebook paper underneath the body of the level until the projected line was precisely aligned with the surface I wanted to set.
*** Finally, it's worth mentioning that (again in contradiction to other reviews) I think wall-fixing IS possible since there is a notched opening on the top clamp jaw which should accommodate a small-headed screw, nail or, MUCH BETTER (since the latter have a less secure way of interfacing with the notch inside to ensure attachment is secure) a threaded cup hook which can screwed into the existing wall fixture.
The clamp jaws might not then be 'level', but since the fixing part of it is adjustable you can still get that necessary 'within 4degrees' for self-levelling !
[I've included a photo of that bit of the clamp jaws to help you understand my point along with it in use that way plus a view of the choice of bases/fixing threads]
So, I think this level works as advertised and, with the included clamp/fixture, offers the opportunity to use it in a multitude of environments.
The line is a bit thick, especially at the ends.
Aside from that - this is actually really useful and I have used it far more than I thought I would.
Like any tool it can take a little while to get used to the many and varied ways to use it. However having just used it to install a 5 metre rsj and install a kitchen with a floating ceiling I can tell you this is a great bit of kit.
We checked calibration against an older floating dot laser level and also various other builders quality spirit levels and did a full test against a carpenter friends level line across the whole kitchen versus the quigo, and the quigo won. The floor, walls and ceiling of the kitchen were all out of level by a fair margin, being able to quickly place datum points and know they were accurate made life a whole lot easier.
The cabinets and doors are all completely plumb and the led downlighters are in straight lines.Yes we did double check most of the time with spirit levels and 3,4,5 but this happened less and less as we got more comfortable with the quigo.
Its a great bit of kit and thoroughly recommended.
Downsides: No case, seriously why no case? Battery life is not great. A small rise and fall winding handle on the clamp to raise and lower depth once you have it clamped to something to help find an exact height would have been very, very handy as it can be tricky to get it to focus exactly on a precise height.
