3.0 out of 5 stars OK but not great, 1 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
OK........but Instructions are poorly translated, I quote "The battery compartment just leave to introduce a direction, pay attention to the contours of the structure ." or "Hold down the OK button to the provi-tive beeps. The value of the corresponding on-load is then removed'
Also seems to have only Euros as currency and once you put a plug in it it's really hard to extract it again.
Comes in a plain white box with no branding on it and the contact details to follow up the service or guarantee have been asterisked out ie "Phone number 00800 / ************** "!
Having said that, seems to work ok , though mainly have used it to compare watts being consumed by individual appliances around house and not tried many of the other functions it implies it's capable of "for professional" as it says. Would choose a different one if I was to buy one again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Every thing a girl should know and may be too embarrassed to discuss., 2 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was recommended by a friend who bought it for her teenage daughter. Problems within school friendship groups and teenage anxieties are discussed sensibly in an accessible fashion. This is an invaluable addition to the teenage bookshelf.


Blazing Paddles: A Scottish Coastal Odyssey
Blazing Paddles: A Scottish Coastal Odyssey
by Brian Wilson
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Read if you canoe or kayak, 31 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great story, I kayak a fair bit but not that brave or adventurous so could imagine the descriptions of the struggles, scenery and adventures on this book and perhaps inspired me to be a little more adventurous myself. I think he's a better canoeist than writer but his style gets the job done and transports you to the locations and scenery he describes so good enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pricey but good, 31 Jan. 2014

Easy to attach so has given watch a second life, shame only Casio straps will fit this item as far as I know so they can charge a lot but worth it to keep watch in use

5.0 out of 5 stars Be Careful, 31 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very useful but be careful if you read it before finishing the whole series, I was reminding myself of details of one of the lesser characters when I was near the end of the series and accidentally hit a massive spoiler so be careful not to read about a character beyond where you have got up to!!
Very thorough and useful book though apart from that!

4.0 out of 5 stars Keep it indoors!!, 31 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought as a Christmas present, The person I gave it to was so keen to fly it they didn't read the instructions in detail (I assume) and tried it outdoors, it survived but only just, so if you give it as a present maybe stick a note on the box before you wrap it specifying indoors only. There are also quite a lot of useful tips I found online about the best way to charge the batteries involving letting it stand for periods of time after/before charging to let battery cool and recharge most efficiently. Not sure this was in instructions so you might want to research that a bit also. Last thing I found in my extensive research before purchase was to beware of fakes (very common apparently) from less reputable sellers. The one I bought here was genuine but maybe check seller feedback first if you are buying from 3rd party seller through Amazon


The New Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the key books on drawing, 31 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well there are a lot of books by people who cant draw telling you how to draw and plenty that tell you how to draw a certain item, landscapes, trees, faces etc. I'm not sure Betty Edwards can draw brilliantly but what she can do is SEE and once you can see and learn how to translate that to paper you can draw anything you can see and with a LOT of practice using the exercises in this book you can master the art of seeing and drawing accurately then it is up to you to find your own individual style.


Colour Mixing Bible
Colour Mixing Bible

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as useful as I'd hoped, 31 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Colour Mixing Bible (Paperback)
Well not so much written information, lots of charts of mixed colours in different media showing results of mixing different colours. If you only use one sort of paint ie acrylics this renders a large proportion of the book irrelevant and even then you are subject to the vagaries of the 4 colour printing process in reproducing the colours. Think I will mix my own versions according to the charts in the book to get a more accurate version and then put the book back on here second hand in which case ignore this review its a briliiant book, just what you are looking for.
There are better colour mixing books on here but I won't name any here as am always suspicious of reviews that slate one item while promoting another.
