Two years ago I posted a youtube video to my home page http://www.texasinspectors.net mainly about the ZipLevel Pro 2000 by Technidea. It’s been viewed 3,137 times. Recently I’ve been contacted by the owner of Digital Leveling Systems, Mike East, furious that I mentioned his product in less than perfect light when comparing it to the ZipLevel. Initially, I was reluctant to take the video down as my video was not made with ill intent, it was nothing personal and it was my assessment of one tool against another. Mr East has begun to post negative reviews about my company like this one here on Yelp.
Today, I have three ZipLevel Pro 2000’s and my opinion of Digital Leveling Systems tool remains unchanged. I can’t imagine replacing my ZipLevels with Mike East’s product. It’s just not up to the task, goes out of calibration frequently and requires frequent maintenance. I depend on professional grade tools for professional results. There is no comparison in my mind.
I defer to the membership and message board users here and will either leave the video up or take it down depending on voting results. I’ve posted this in the open section so Mr. East could comment.
