How to choose the right DISTO.

What’s the best laser measuring device? It’s the one that fits your needs and meets your expectations.

So how do you choose the laser measure that’s best for you? Use our product selection guide to point you in the right direction.

We invented the Leica DISTO in 1993. We make the most accurate and advanced laser measures in the world and we are continually pushing the technology to do bigger and better things. That’s not fluff, it is the simple truth. Ask a Leica DISTO user (“But don’t take my word for it..”) why they picked Leica DISTO™ and we’re confident they’ll confirm those sentiments.

The thing is, we currently manufacture eight different DISTO models. They range from the simple to use 3 button E7100i to the highly advanced, AutoCad compatible S910. Each DISTO has unique characteristics that make it ideal for one job or another. Having said that, it’s not always the easiest thing in the world to know which DISTO best fits your needs.

To complicate things, there are now many different manufacturers of laser measuring devices. One thing that keeps us awake at night is the knowledge that there are laser measure manufacturers out there producing measuring tools that do not meet that ISO 16331-1 standard for Laser Distance Meter accuracy and range. You might get a winner, or you might not. Unfortunately, people who buy these models sometimes lose faith with the technology as a whole and go back to the old, less efficient workflow that they were trying to eliminate when they bought a laser measuring tool in the first place.

To help you choose the right DISTO, while also showing you the primary features that make DISTO™ stand out from the herd, we put together a product selector. The product selector asks a few high level questions and includes video that demos the featured functions for a given question. This tool should help you quickly narrow your decision down to one or two models.

All we ask is that you do your due diligence when choosing a laser measure. We think the internet will support our claims. If you do venture out for more information, you’ll find that a Leica DISTO™ shoots farther and more accurately, lasts longer and has more useful functions than any other laser measuring device on the market.
