What we like and what we don’t like about Measure King
The use of a good measure tape can be precious depending on the situation. Although we don’t need tape measures every day, having a good, accurate measure tape can become really handy in many occasions. Particularly, if you are a DIYer who attends to various tasks at home, the use of a tape measure is obvious for you. Measure King, as per the descriptions provided by the manufacturers, is a specially designed, advanced measure tape. They say that this product comes with laser integration and with a digital display unit. However, it is introduced to the market as an “As Seen on TV” product. We see a large number of “As Seen on TV” products in the market with exaggerated marketing campaigns. That being said, let’s take a look at what we like and what we don’t like about Measure King.
What we like
One of the most notable features associated with Measure King is that it facilitates three different measurement systems; cord, laser and roll modes. Because of this multiple mode measuring system, you can change the mode depending on the type of the measurement task you have to accomplish.
Apart from the measurement modes, you can change the measurement units too. Again, depending on the type of the object you measure and the result you expect, you can change the measurement units between centimeters, inches and feet.
Each of the measurement modes have their own benefits. If you have an object that needs to be wrapped around the object to get the measurement, you can use the tape measure. Still, you don’t need to manually read the measurements in the tape; you can easily read it through the digital display unit. You can easily freeze the respective measurement by pressing the red button.
When it comes to the roll mode, it is introduced to measure objects that have unusual formations. Apart from that, you can consider using this roll mode to measure very long distances.
The laser mode, however, is a pretty impressive introduction and surprisingly, the accuracy of the laser mode is less compared to the other two modes. However, the excitement and the joyful experience you can enjoy while pointing the laser beam at some object is significant.
Another nice feature associated with Measure King is that it lets you start the measurements from either side of the device when it is in laser mode or cord mode. This can be a very useful feature if you are looking to measure different types of objects where certain obstructions exist.
What we don’t like
The length of the cord is limited to 11 ft. In fact, this is much shorter compared to the standard tapes you find in the market.
Surprisingly, the accuracy of the laser measurement mode is less compared to other two options (though we expect the exact opposite of that). Also, some users have experienced that laser mode measurement delivers inaccurate measurement units too. Therefore, if you are expecting a precise measurement, it is better to look for an alternative.
We are not too sure if you can purchase this product from a local store. Being an “As Seen on TV” product, it is promoted and sold through their official product website. It might be available in some local shops too.
Also, we believe that there can be potential shipping delays if you order this product through their product website. As we know, most of the “As Seen on TV” products are very slow to be shipped to your doorstep.
Should you buy Measure King?
Well, we have mix thoughts about recommending this product to you. Although it works perfectly with cord mode and tape mode, there are frequent inaccuracies when it comes to the laser mode. Apart from that, you will have to consider the shipping delays too.
The price of Measure King is $29.95. In addition to that, you will have to pay $9.95 and $1 as shipping fee and web service fee respectively.
