About a month ago, I got my hands on the new Bosch GIM 120 Digital Level.
I can remember about twenty years or so ago when the first digital levels hit the market.
For a contractor, yes – I’m one of the few media people that review tools that’s actually worked for decades on the job sites of real paying customers, that worked with traditional levels with bubbles in alcohol vials, the digital levels were futuristic.
I remember testing one of the first ones and it pretty much drove me insane when I was using it.
Why you ask?
Well, with a traditional level, unless you have a super high quality one where the edges of the bubble just touch up against the lines marked on the vial, you have some wiggle room. The bubble can be within the lines and not be perfectly centered. For most, this passes as level.
But with a digital level, there’s only ONE LEVEL. If you’re off a little bit, the level lets you know. If you have a customer hovering over your shoulder or you make the mistake and leave your level on the job site, then you might get a headache in a hurry.
Does this mean you shouldn’t get one? No.
If you’re a homeowner and are a perfectionist, this is your DREAM TOOL.
If you’re a contractor that wants perfection, BUY THIS TOOL.

The Bosch GIM 120 is a precision tool that delivers solid performance, but I feel it’s not necessary for daily use on most jobs because it will drive the average user insane trying to get whatever level. That’s the voice of experience screaming at you.
