Thermometer-Hygrometer Instrument Room Control Black-White
Thermometer-Hygrometer Instrument Room Control Black-White
Offered by Wetterladen24
Price: 14.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Compact easy to read instrument, 28 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We're all more conscious these days of the need to save energy, and the thermometer is a useful check against a household heating thermostat. Our old instrument measuring humidity was never remotely reliable, and the hygrometer on this device seems to be reading what it should do, helping us avoid too dry or too humid interior humidity.

The readings are clear and easily seen, and setting controls similarly easy to work, though it does help if one reads the simple manual, of course.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very useful liquid container, 28 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having tried collapsible or folding water containers, we wanted something not too large which would be easy to use and these bottles fit the bill. They are sturdy, stand upright without distorting or leaning, and remain translucent enough to see the water level. I'm not sure why the caps come with a locking ring, but these are easily removed and the caps don't leak anyway. They have no perceptible odour, either.

5.0 out of 5 stars At last - a keyboard which is clear and easy to use!, 28 Feb 2014
I'd delayed buying a new keyboard, as I knew that the fashion is for cramped keys, preferably with black-on-black letters etc. Then my old faithful died. After another high-and-low search this came up and I've been a happy bunny again since its arrival.

The layout is standard UK, with the function keys, numbers-pad etc where you'd expect them to be. The lettering and symbols are large and clear, and the keys feel like a keyboard should feel; they do need pressing, albeit with minimal effort, and make a comforting but unintrusive "clack" or thump. Probably not ideal for touch-typists used to barely touching the keys, they are ideal for untrained users accustomed to using whatever hand and finger gestures work best for them.

Unlike many, this keyboard also has Caps Lock and Num Lock lights (and another I haven't figured out yet). And it comes complete with a set of functions to control a computer's multi-media etc for those who like to operate them from the keyboard. So it isn't just a board for dumbos with heavy hands and a munching habit!

Whether being able to dunk it in the sink to wash it will be useful I'll have to wait and see, but I do look forward to that instead of trying to get a light damp cloth into the gaps between keys. As far as I can tell, there is minimal to go wrong, and the lead is quite long enough to wander across the desk and back down to plug into the machine underneath. It is lightweight, so dusting under it is easy.

4.0 out of 5 stars A must for Dysons, 9 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
In fact something like this should be made compulsory for all vacuum cleaners which have a hose and maybe one or two heads. The number of slim nozzles which just don't work with any notable effect is legion. This one can be bent around most parts of the inside of a car (under the seats and into dirt traps), and hard-to-access spots in the home.

Used with a hand-held it's also great for retrieving objects the cat or dog have somehow managed to push way under the sofa or fridge.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Version, 9 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We saw the English version, bought the video, read the books - and then tried this Swedish version. It is far better in capturing the atmosphere of the book and the subtitles aren't a problem. Noomi Rapace as The Girl is more convincing, as are the other actors.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh, the memories!, 9 Feb 2014

I wore out the vinyl version of my favourite Michael Chapman LP long ago. The songs may sound like they come from that incredibly fertile period of the late 60s-early 70s, but remain relevant and fresh.

4.0 out of 5 stars Just the thing for a modern home, 9 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was purchased as a gift for a family with children, with varying IT competence. I'm told that the various connection options are simple to use, and the machine does what it says on the box, which is what's wanted, after all.

As usual, don't bankrupt yourself with genuine Canon cartridges; the compatible market has come a long way since it began by jamming or wrecking printers!


Classic Landforms of the Sussex Coast (Classic Landform Guides)
Classic Landforms of the Sussex Coast (Classic Landform Guides)
by Rodney Castleden
Edition: Paperback

3.0 out of 5 stars Useful for Sussex Coast residents, 9 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book was written for school pupils who already have (or should have) a working familiarity with geological terms. If you haven't then you may be irritated at times by this assumption on the part of the author; but the blurb does warn you.

As an introduction to the many variations in the cliff forms and valleys of coastal Sussex it is intriguing to the curious, who never realised there could be so many when they initially look the same. As well as informing for academic purposes, this book contains a lot to explain things you've seen and wondered about, and points to forms you'll remember to look out for next time you're on the beaches.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for getting freshening whilst hoovering, 9 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you have a Sebo - or similar upright - then these fresheners not only emit a fragrance; they cover up the inevitable smells which all hoovering seems to produce by sucking, brushing and cleaning carpets.

It's a classic, including Pride and the outstanding Bad, which are worth the album price by themselves. The rest are inspired.
