laser levels, rotating lasers, builders levels, transits, theodolites, line lasers, plumb lasers, they all have their uses. used em all at one time or another. I like the little line lasers the best though, for electrical work, for lining up rows of cans (200 bucks or so for a self levelling one, easily worth it)

The only thing that limits what you can do with laser lines is your own lack of imagination. I have dewalt laser boxes and a hilti red dot box and even though I work in an industrial environment I use all of them almost daily. Totally worth the investment

I have a PLS vertical/horizontal rotating laser as well as a Fatmax laser plumb bob.

The rotating works great for putting a line across the ceiling for laying out fixtures end to end, can lights, etc or for running pipe perfectly straight without having to measure off the wall constantly.

I bought the rotating laser specifically for a huge warehouse with a ton of conduit in the ceiling. It paid for itself on that job.

I use a line laser and plumb bob all the time. I haven't used a laser level in a very long time.

Any good ones under $100? Laser level...
This is the best bang for your buck. I use one nearly everyday in a fluorescent lit building.

Home Depot also has a refurbished cst/berger which is just as good except it doesn't have the built in magnet.
