5.0 out of 5 stars A very positive song, 10 Nov. 2013

Always cheers me up after a long day. I also recommend the movie, whenever you are down, you realize that friends are the most important in your life!

4.0 out of 5 stars A good one, 10 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is quite good one, a story with a few twists, even if i could predict who did it, i couldn't predict the ending, so it gave me a few good hours of read. As usual, it helps if you know MIddle Age English or you use your Kindle's dictionaries, because the author uses a lots of out of fashion words (and i am not a native English speaker). Sometimes i had to skip long descriptions of scenery or other paragraphs describing the characters in detail as i was keen to figure out the solution, but it is a good crime novel.

4.0 out of 5 stars Does its job, 10 Nov. 2013

Good design, fits to every position as the internal circular part can be turned freely. It, makes the wall more decorative, of course it is not a designer product, could be slightly smaller, but my wall looks better with this.

3.0 out of 5 stars Does its job - be aware of warranty terms, 20 Dec. 2012
It removes a lots of humidity, works really well. It is quite silent on slow fan speed, getting noisier on high speed. From mechanical point of view, the fan is not perfectly balanced, so you can feel a bit of shaking and rumbling. Probably a redesign of the bearings or an extra balancing during manufacturing would make this product even better. However I bought it with 5yrs warranty, so I am sure I will have a working dehumidifier for long time.

Update:
Be aware of the difference between "repair" and "service" in Meaco's term!!!!
After 2 winters, the unit became dusty as filter is really ineffective. First the vent alarm started flashing (warn of overheat) more and more often. After some time this winter the fault alarm came, the unit stopped. You can reset that by unplugging the device. I tried to vacuum whatever i could, but it didn't help - there is no way to clean the internals unless the unit is disassembled.
The fault alarm happened more and more often too, at some point the unit could run only for half an hour.
I contacted customer service. First advice they gave: clean the drain trunk with an ear bud and blow the unit with a hairdryer (sound very professional, isn't it?). Hairdryer removed some dust (do it outside!), when i turned the unit on, there was a burning smell, and after a day running now it seems to be better. Still creaking on low speed fan setting though.
And here is the twist: customer service differentiates between "service" and "repair". They say to clean the dust from dehumidifier disc (the rotating dessicant disc) they charge £20 (they claim this is a discount from £70!) and they consider this as "service" and it is not considered as "repair". What?
I am waiting for feedback on warranty term clarification from them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny anecdotes, 12 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very entertaining, made me laugh quite a lot. Funny anecdotes about real life in a boat and at the ports. I just wondered about the sudden finish, but it was Chase's choice - who can blame him spending more time with family after years of service?
Well written, recommended book if you like navy stories.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential for Perl OOP, 9 Aug. 2012

This review is from: Object Oriented Perl (Paperback)
This is the classic of Perl OOP, everybody must have who is planning to do some serious Perl, not just OOP, but even for functional Perl. May not use the latest code features, but still the best reference for OO Perl.

4.0 out of 5 stars New English, 11 Feb. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My wife got it for her English course. She was happy to use as it contains many conversation exercises . However it lacks of detailed grammar, and grammar part is rather shallow, so you need an additional book like Murphy's English grammar in use if you want better understanding.

The first trial is promising, it seems to be very precise. Hopefully it will last long, as it has a solid build. However, if you have to cut wider pieces, consider the sliding version.

4.0 out of 5 stars Listing only the major places, but gives many details, 22 Feb. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
if you follow the main track and plan to visit the major attractions, this book is for you. If you like a bit off track, try other guides. However, the style is clear, many good suggestions about food and accomodation. Using it with the internet gives you enough details to travel through Scotland with confidence.

Very well written book. The exercises are really valuable and helps you to memorize the idioms those are usually very far from my native language logic.
