    So as the title says. I’m thinking about a laser level. I’m doing up the bathrooms and thinking it would help

    so the question is for a DIYer Red or pay the extra for Green?

    im hoping for a Black Friday deal

    And on that basis the DeWalt DW088 is on offer at our hosts for silly money at the moment. £90 I think.

    That’s the one I was looking at, then saw the link to the green version :)

    Red will be fine for bathrooms.

    Pretty sure the DW088 Red is what I have, its fine. Works a treat.

    Thanks all, So an interesting update. Amazon are selling the Bosch Pro GLL 2-10 Green for £97, does that change the suggestions away from the Dewalt Red at £90

    The thing is people would have needed to have used both to give you an honest/accurate assessment of how to spend your money. Everyone I know who has the red DeWalt really rates it. I have both red (Leica) and green (Stabila) and they're fine. I use the Stabila most because that fits in my tool case and the Leica is carried as a spare should something happen to the Stabila.
    I don't use them outdoors - I have a rotary laser and receiver for that.

    It all depends on what you intend to use it for, if you need it for large and bright areas then the green will be better but if it’s for internal areas like kitchens and bathrooms then the red will suit you just fine.
    I use Imex 3DR which is red and it does everything I need it to, but then again it’s not £90.
