I love ryobi as it is such a innovative yet affordable brand! In response to james i would say that you do not need perfect accuracy for many application and they are gearing their products definatley towards consumers or prosumers not professionals, so it is perfectly fine!


I have used RYOBITM, its accuracy is lower than the dedicated laser level. But for those applications that do not need high accuracy, it can be a great choice.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
