Pretty good introduction to this subject area. Easy to read in bite size chunks. If you are very experienced and knowledgeable in these methods I am not sure you will get a lot from. the content other than clarifying your understanding.

I have a number these and on the whole they work well. I have three lamps working off one channel and don't have any problems. If the socket is shielded by furniture etc sometimes it can be tricky to get the thing to turn off and on. Conversely I have one in a socket hidden in cupboard with big plastic box in front of it and it works fine.

Good product in that it has the extra depth of brush to bridge gap between door and floor surface. Reasonable price as well.

Great for a flat or two people household.
I got one of these after seeing my neighbours...
The footprint is small and the lid just sits on bin so no worries about the thing breaking.

4.0 out of 5 stars Panasonic recorder review, 1 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I purchased because I have a Panasonic TV and only wanted one remote ( i.e use the hard drive one). However there are times when you need the TV one. If you are recording two program at once you need to use the TV remote to watch another TV program.

Also when the new free-view program updates dialog box comes up you can't 'exit' the updates without using the hard drive remote. I think some of this is also about not knowing fully how the thing works yet! I need to play around with it a bit more....

Its dead easy to record programs and generally use, the reproduction is first class. I would despite my early statements about the remote recommend this product.

Service good and product delivered in good time.

I really didn't need such a large transformer in the end, its my fault not the supplier.

The product does have a low noise level. Its ok but you do notice it a times. It also gets very warm to hot. I don't think there are any safety issues but its in the nature of thing. If you want to power small appliances which are not power hungry a smaller transformer would be better purchase.

This review is from: 3 PCE MAGNETIC TOOL RACK
I used this product to hold assorted screw drivers, chisels, files and pliers. The magnets are very strong and hold quite heavy items. They are also effective with round stem screw drivers.
The beauty of this method, over a pegboard/clips approach is you don't have to worry about the clips or slots in a plastic shelf being the right size. I would recommend this item as very practical for holding the tools mentioned above and is good value for money, so much so, I have ordered another set.

Small, light and does the job in the car. Appears flimsy but is holding up well to daily use. Lead could of been a bit longer. I have a Ford Focus so it has to stretch from passenger side to driver side. I had another lead and using this severely affected the volume adjustment. This product does not have that problem. Recommend product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Experience of product, 26 Mar 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very pleased with this laptop . Key board size good (not too small and difficult to use) and so is screen size. I think it is a good size between a mini note book and std laptop for travel purposes. The quick start up for just using emails or internet is a good feature. Battery life is good also. Would recommend this product
