More information for comparison

1st place

HUEPAR S04CG

The most functional 4D laser level today, which has no analogues.

laser level Huepar S04CG

The laser level projects 4 planes with a 360-degree sweep, just like all the laser levels in this collection.

The most important difference between this model is in the presence of Bluetooth for control from the phone, and in the presence of an LCD screen that displays the angle of inclination of the housing.

These two aspects greatly increase the functionality of the device, and confidently bring it to the first place.

If you want to know all the details about this model of 4D laser level, see the tests, learn how to calibrate it, then see the detailed review of the Huepar S04CG on the website.

You can also watch a large video, but only with English subtitles enabled.


2nd place

FUKUDA MW-94D-4GX

This 4D laser level projects 4 closed planes of 360 degrees: 2 horizontal and 2 vertical.

appearance Fukuda MW-94D-4GX

Thanks to the two horizontal planes, this laser level is perfect for installing various ceilings, as well as for installing any floors and floor coverings. The minimum projection distance of the laser plane from the floor is 0.9 cm.

the device has an excellent delivery package, which also includes a remote control. For tests and information about adjusting the Fukuda MW-94D-4GX laser level, see the detailed review.

You can also check out this model in the video review below, just don’t forget to enable subtitles in English.


3rd place

HUEPAR 904DG

Low-cost 4D laser level with good build quality and remote control.

appearance Huepar 904DG

The laser level projects four planes of 360 degrees (4×360º). Perfect for all types of construction and finishing work. It has all the necessary modes, including the ability to work from the electrical network.

The device comes with an excellent magnetic mount with a microlift and graduation. This model is easy to disassemble and calibrate if necessary. How to do this, read the detailed review of the Huepar 904DG laser level or watch the video below.


4th place

ZOKOUN IE16R

This model is included in the list of the best 4D laser levels in 2021, as it has a fairly low price and not bad build quality.

You can also meet the same laser level under other names. This is not surprising, everyone can order the manufacturer to release a batch of laser levels under their own brand.

The Zokoun IE16R has a remote control, a receiver mode and a TILT function, although not quite as complete as the 4D laser levels listed above.

Also, this model is easily adjusted if necessary and is conveniently disassembled. One of the disadvantages is the plastic, not the metal frame of the compensator. For more information, see the review of the Zokoun IE16R laser level or the video of an absolutely identical laser level.


5th place

HILDA 4D GREEN 16 Lines

The cheapest today is a green 4D laser level with an optical scheme of 4*360º. It is because of the low price that it got into this list of the best 4D laser levels this year.

This model holds the record for the number of different names, so do not be surprised if you see the same device under a different brand.

Of course, from such a small cost, you should not expect a miracle. But for infrequent home use, you can still consider this device, despite many shortcomings.

You can learn in detail all the nuances of the HILDA 4D 16 Lines laser level in a large review. Also, watching videos with subtitles in English will help with the choice.

To date, this is a list of the top 5 best 4D laser levels in 2021. The list will be updated as soon as there are decent similar laser levels of other brands, so I recommend that you sometimes look here.

Also on the site is a large number of detailed reviews of other laser levels and useful information.

For seven years I was engaged in various interior decoration and construction of country houses. Then I opened a shop selling laser and geodetic instruments. For nine years I have been selling and making alignment of laser levels, so I have accumulated a lot of experience in this area. Now I am writing and shooting detailed reviews of the laser instrument. For more details, see the page about me.

    Hi Sergei,
    First of all, congratulations for your hard work. I was quite surprised to find such detailed reviews on Chinese laser levels on your site.
    There is something unclear to me. I am looking for a 4d laser level that is great at accuracy and acceptable as price. Looking at your individual reviews for Huepar 904DG and Fukuda MW 94D-4GX I’ve seen that:
    – Fukuda has a smaller battery (4000 vs 5200mh)
    – Fukuda doesn’t work on power outlet
    – Fukuda seems to have some really thin wires (as seen in a picture when disassembled) which can easily be broken. Haven’t seen that in Huepar pictures
    – Huepar has a distance of 1.8mm from the floor while Fukuda has 0.9mm
    – By a brief search, given my location, Fukuda is more expensive with about 34$.

    So my question is: Fukuda seems to have some more negative points vs Huepar, why is it higher on your top? I surely missed some advantages of it. My main concern with Huepar is the high distance to the floor and it basically could go above ceramic tiles making it useless. What would you recommend?
    Thank you.

      Hi Alin. Very glad you enjoyed the reviews.
      1. All laser levels have stated accuracy, and when they come out of the factory they all meet that accuracy. But all further activities such as: storage, transportation, temperature fluctuations, etc. can affect the accuracy. Therefore, there are cases where upon receipt the accuracy is outside the stated accuracy, and here requires adjustment, which by the way can be done yourself, it is not so difficult.
      2. Yes, Fukuda MW-94D-4GX has a slightly smaller battery, here in any case it is better to buy a set with two batteries. One battery in operation the other on charge, then there is no problem at all. If we talk about Huepar 4D, it is better to consider Huepar S04CG or a model with prefix Huepar S04CG-L it just has no screen and bluetooth. These models have much better laser modules than the 904DG.
      3. The Fukuda doesn’t work with mains power, that’s right. But in principle if you have 2 batteries, it’s not a problem. As a last resort you can make a hole on the battery compartment cover opposite the battery connector and plug it into a socket.
      4. all laser levels have thin copper wires. They carry power to the emitters and are responsible for the other functions. This is done on purpose, if the wires were thicker they would slow down the pendulum.
      5. The Fukuda is the undisputed leader as far as the minimum distance from the bottom horizon to the floor is concerned. If this distance is very important to you, then you should look at the Fukuda.
      Overall, I would still put the Fukuda higher than the Huepar 904DG, but lower than the Huepar S04CG-L and therefore without the “L” prefix.
      To date, the maximum functionality is, of course, Huepar S04CG. What to choose is a complicated question. If the bottom distance is critical, then Fukuda, if not I would take a better Huepar S04CG-L.

  2. Alin

    Such a detailed answer with links and everything. Thank you, I really appreciate it.
    It seems that the price I was aiming for keeps increasing and increasing. The Huepar S04CG-L is about 32$ more expensive than Fukuda. I am not sure how important the laser is being German Osram but I like other things from it, like for instance on the base it has the mounting screw centered, while Fukuda required the clamp adapter. If the model is similar with the one you reviewed, it means that the bottom distance is 1.5mm. Given that most ceramic tiles are around 10mm, I am not sure if it’s suitable or not… It is kind at the limit. Given that it won’t be used that much for the floor, maybe it’s a better compromise in terms of quality and performance to pay a bit extra for the Huepar. I’ll give it some thought.

    Thank you again for your great work and time.

      Yes, of course think about it. When the choice is difficult it is best to take a piece of paper and point by point + and – of one and the other, where the pros are more that and take. Thank you for your words of support!

  3. Alin

    Sorry to bother you again, I’d like to hear your thoughts on the difference of laser between Huepar S04CG and Fukuda . Huepar should be German Osram but looking in your brightness levels article, Fukuda is on top of it. On the comparison video between these 2 models, the Huepar seemed to have a brighter laser. Anyway, it’s weird that a cheap laser is on the first place with quite some big margins. Hibiru is good compared with Fukuda? Have you reviewed it?
    Thanks a lot.

      Hibiru is only sold in Russia, so there is no point in doing a review here. This is the low-cost segment of laser levels, it just has different emitters, not like the other cheap ones, but more expensive ones. You have to understand that there is no manufacturer’s goal to make a very bright laser. There is such a laser, but it should not be installed on such instruments, it is very hazardous to the eyes. Therefore there is a task to make a brightness-weighted laser module so that lines from it are thin enough, clearly visible, and not harmful to the eyes. All those green beam laser levels would be fine indoors and the differences would be minor. If you are working outdoors, there is a laser receiver for that.
      A lot of people just want to find out which laser level is the brightest, although this is rather relative and not decisive. It’s true that you will see the difference between the closest models in the table on a clear day and at 3 meters, i.e. the same Hibiru will be visible but the Huepar 904DG will be virtually invisible. But if under the same conditions put Huepar S04CG / Hibiru / Fukuda, the difference will be virtually no.
      And also, Osram has really soft light, it is not so glare. With others, the line is so bright that it really blinds your eyes, and when you work for a long time, your eyes get tired quickly.

    Thank you for your detailed answer. This is really interesting to find out about Osram feature. The more I read the better Huepar sounds except for the floor height.
    – Huepar has Osram which is better on the eyes
    – Huepar has multiple sources of power input: battery, AA batteries (which can also be replaced with AA rechargeable), directly connected to outlet
    – Huepar has center mounter screw for easily attachment on supports/tripod
    These are small things that improve the user experience a lot…
    – Fukuda needs extra custom battery, needs tripod adapter but it has 0.9mm from floor 🙂

    Thank you again for everything. I’ll think a bit more on it. I whish you maximum health!

    Hi, in the end I’ve purchased Huepar S04CG because I’ve found it at a very good price.
    I’ve received it today and tested it and I think it’s not working well. Basically it feels like the pendulum gets stuck sometimes. But only sometimes. Most of the time it works. What I mean is, if I move the level a bit (like 5/-5 degrees), at some point it stops to auto level. When it does this, if I tilt the laser while the angle displayed on the screen is smaller than 3 degrees it does not auto level (basically I can see the green line not straight next to my other laser level) but in the same time the line/sound of not leveled DOES NOT blink/make sound. If I shake it a bit, pendulum gets unlocked and self levels. I’ve compared it with my Bosh and the Bosch always levels. My guess is that is something wrong with auto leveling feature. Any thoughts on this?

      There are two possibilities, either the compensator is broken and it has something wrong with the bearings, there are small bearings on both axes (probably because of the impact, as an example during delivery). Or something got under the pendulum (some foreign object), it happens, I met at different levels. It is necessary to disassemble and look under the pendulum. Everything you said sounds like that. This is exactly how the pendulum starts to behave.

  6. Alin

    I’ve been doing some more testing. Sometimes the pendulum is simply stuck when I take the device out of the box and turn it on in normal position. Sometimes I tilt it a bit left and right and it auto-levels. However the movement of the laser heads is clearly not smooth. I have a Bosch and that is way smoother (even if not a 3d model) and I can shake it around and still levels just right. I don’t want to open it. I am trying to settle it with the seller and see if I can get it replaced or money back. Thank you for your time and answer.

      If you don’t want to open it, the best thing to do is exchange it for a new one. Unpleasant situations happen, it’s a matter of chance. Good luck with the exchange.
