How to choose
How we test

The best laser measures are a real step up from old-school tape measures, offering much more accurate results. They're usually quicker and much less fiddly to use, especially when you're in a cluttered room with lots of things in the way. And with advanced models, you can even get help with your calculations and store a series of readings to refer back to later. Some also come with an inclinometer, which measures the angle of an object.
