4.0 out of 5 stars Almost blackout curtains, 18 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
They are not blackout in as it should (they filter about 80% of light, but still 20% comes trough). They do the job for me, though.
Quality of stitching is not very high. Out of 4 pieces (2 pairs), 2 of them were having defects (I was able to repair them myself, but still defects).
So, why gave 4 stars? Because of the price (20 pounds/pair). Acceptable.

1.0 out of 5 stars So the pair is now completely useless. Of course, 18 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After 10 months of use one of them is dead (no lights on it). So the pair is now completely useless. Of course, as per Amazon warranty policy it can not be send back or send to a repair center, because it past 30 days....As per EU regulations (UK is still part of it) a product shall be guaranteed for 2 years (24 months). I will be very cautious in buying anything from Amazon from now on. Especially electronics...!

3.0 out of 5 stars Some foul smell are easy removed by it, 6 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It does something. Some foul smell are easy removed by it. But does not do what I bought it for: removing fine dust from air. Best prove: after a week the dust is covering even its plastic body. How is to supposed to clean of dust the whole room?

4.0 out of 5 stars OK Top Box, 18 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The reason I didn't give full 5 stars is because it seems to have problems connecting trough HDMI to TVl. Sometimes it connects sometimes I have to restart it several times or to connect the Euroscart instead. It is annoying especially when the last channel you viewed last time is not airing and you want to start the box after some time. It simply does not want to connect through HDMI in such cases (it should display a message).
Otherwise:
-recording OK
-HD view OK
-Sound OK

5.0 out of 5 stars Field experiments everywhere, 18 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What I like to this book is the way the 2 authors try to apply as much as possible the "out-of-lab" or field experiments to real world. It is very interesting that some thoughts and theories and hypothesis seem to describe so elegantly the reality until the reality itself proves otherwise. One example: theory says that children should not be motivated with money in order to learn because if we do this then they will make learning linked to an external motivation while we should strive for their internal motivation on learning. But guess what?! For some children it does work! "Bribing" them with money or gifts can actually make them to want to learn more.

5.0 out of 5 stars A collection of interesting ideas, 18 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I love the way different people think about the same subject. It proves once more that great ideas are not owned by anyone (be it Einstein or any other much revered scientist). It proves that ideas are every-changing, from person to person, from scientist to scientist.
This is not a book in the classical sense where an author write about a subject. Where the author gets wrapped and slowly mummifies itself in layers of same ideas which he has to justify and defend and protect . Is rather a collection of free range ideas. This is why I like it so much.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works fine, 21 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Use it so far about 3-4 months. Not for heavy works, but rather small metal works. Recommended. Does the job.

5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting, 21 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Read it before order it actually. Interesting topics. A bit philosophical in some ideas (rather than practical, tech oriented) but it was intended to be pop-science, so no complain. Recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars Some problems with dimensions on some blocks, 21 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Some small problems at assembly (some pieces didn't fit well so I had to carve them by hand; it was a happy situation that I had to carve and not add some material). Otherwise ok.
