I think you want too much from one tool.

I have a rotary laser for doing kitchens, etc in OLD homes where nothing is level, and where the new cabinets WILL be.

I also have a plumb-bob style laser for doing recessed cans and fixtures on sloped ceilings. The perfect job I used it for was a kitchen with four pendants. It was a corner room with a hip roof, so the ceiling had three different slopes.
I did the layout on the floor, shot the beam up and set my boxes.

Then I have a typical laser torpedo level for doing everything else.

Brands? Any name brand is good. Stabila, Checkpoint, Hilti, Dewalt(?)(not a big fan of Dewalt) , even Stanley.

I use a hilti rotary laser for lines. I don't remember the model # offhand, though. I have a Stanley Fat Max for plumb lines. It's perfect for doing layouts on the floor then transferring the marks to the ceiling.
