Has anyone already had the chance to test the 'Roofus'?

Looks like a useful little tool.

Other than the fact its got the plumb and level vials I'm struggling to see how its significantly better than the Stanley adjustable quick square and it doesn't look to have anything like the info on a Chappell Universal square.

BTW finally heard back from Roofus. This tool is being produced in China which makes the premium retail price an insult. I'll be passing on it.
