The Energy Efficient Home: A Complete Guide

3.0 out of 5 stars A decent read, but needs more work, 10 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I enjoyed reading this book, but with the Red 'New Edition' flash across the bottom corner of the cover, I expected it to be about 12 months old. I was wrong. I am interested in micro generation wind power.
Under Renewable Energy on p128 it mentions Windsave. It says that it is a recent development which makes wind energy much more accessible for most people.' That's great but when I research a bit more into the product/company, I find that Windsave went into administration in 2009. It's 2013 now so it's hardly 'New Edition'.
That aside, the book is a good read, but not bang up to date with technologies that may need to be added in the future.

5.0 out of 5 stars Looks Good., 28 Dec. 2012

Been using this for a year non stop. This is a robust piece of kit which looks fantastic. Due to the W500 being quite chunky, this book case makes it look all the better.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Product but with flaws, 28 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The set up was easy, and you have a Sony Help App which allows a very good reference tool on the player.

I wanted this item to watch sport from the world over. It is possible but really difficult. I would recommend joining a forum as the Community support are excellent.
Google Play doesn't allow you to download all the Apps so there are restrictions.

I love the potential of this product but when Skype doesn't even work on here then you know there's a lot of work to do.

If Google can update their software a lot quicker then I will shout about this product from the rooftops, but they must try harder in order to become a market leader.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this book!, 21 Aug. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm a Renewables Assessor and wanted a quick simple read to remind myself of the Solar Industry. I can thoroughly recommend this book to newcomers to the industry who want to learn more about the designing and installing of PV. Cannot actually find a fault and the fact that it is related to a website make this purchase a no-brainer. If you don't buy it, then you're missing out.

3.0 out of 5 stars So far, So Good, 9 April 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Overall a pretty good phone. The CD that came with the phone didn't work properly,I had to install it manually. Even though the overall feel is one of cheapness, and probably made from the Far East, the fact that you can actually get the phone like this is an achievement. The box states can be used up to 50m, but I did about 10m between solid walls and had very little interference.
My Dad is partially deaf and at 82 he could still understand what I was saying very clearly. I reasonably happy with the phone, and currently being a miserable old git allows me to to be hyper-critical.
The postage is fast as well.
This phone is ideal if you are not heavy user unlike my wife.
