I've had one for a year and been happy. Works great for what it does,
but it's not the best level or the best stud finder. Saves time
hanging pictures, shelves, etc. but it's not a transit laser if that's
what you really need/want.
I don't know about that particular one, but some (those little yellow
ones about the size of a tape measure) put out a dot in a direct
line and then a vertical line down form there for doing "plumb".
The biggest issue I have with them is the small size. You are only
leveling across a few inches. If you get something you can sit on
a longer level you will get much more accuracy.
You would have to use a square also accuracy is poor at best I think the
drop is +/- 1/4in per 20'. It cannott generate a vertical beam either.
But on the otherhand it is cheap and has a big ad campaign. Personally I
would either invest a few more bucks in the 3 way lazer level at the
Home Depot. It is made by robo lazer. or save your money and use a line
level a string and two nails. It will be just about as accurate and
cost you only a couple bucks.

one thing it is handy for is installing ducting (or pipes). You have
a starting point and across the other side of the room is the
finishing point. Use the laser to run a line across and measure the
offset or transition size needed.
Put it on a rotary stand, and spin it around to give yo ua line for
installing ceiling battens.
