4.0 out of 5 stars most advanced thermostat for electric underfloor heating i could find, 20 Jan. 2016
Got one today. Fitted myself (i am in the construction) to my electric UH. Not sure why, but Chinese thermostats are a lot easier to wire in, as the markings on the unit are extremely easy to follow: supply Live and Neutral, Load live and Neutral, floor sensor and earth. On this unit it is a bit more technical, as on all of the Heatmiser thermostats. I do not mind, but for a DIY person it might be a bit more complicated. Unit has few ways of wiring in: for boiler, boiler with Hot water cylinder, wet underfloor heating and electric UH, timer. This is unusual, as you would buy a different model thermostat for each purpose.
Setup was quite straight forward, but long WiFi codes not so easy to type with the navigation buttons. Navigation buttons not very responsive and a lot of times you would press it twice to get it to respond.
Application is simple to use, but wish it could show floor temperature. Movement censor will be a good thing, that way heating could be turned off if no one is at home.
Unit well built, but floor temperature should be displayed in small font on the main screen. To see the floor temperature, you have to press left and right buttons for 5 seconds, and no way to see it in the app. you can tell i miss this feature...
Overall it looks nice, and it is the most advanced thermostat for electric underfloor heating i have found to date.
Will update this review after few weeks of use.
UPDATE 10/4/2016
3 month later. One of 2 Heatmisers been to a "doctor". Started to make a tiny bussing sound and getting hot. You couldn’t tell , but the plasterboard around it would get worm, making the thermostat show 23 degrees, when real temperature in the room was 18. Took me a while to understand this. After 2 weeks at "doctors” got a verdict - cremation. They might have got it cloned or something, but I got an exactly the same looking unit back. :)
I also have ordered Warmup 4IE to test. so this unit will stay in the sealed box for now. waiting to test the Warmup. Pity thing about the Heatmiser is that it only switches up to 690Watts. But on their official website they have pulled off the Electric UH functionality, and it shows as incompatible with electric UH. Very strange... Taking another star off, but I am sure it works perfectly well on every other heating apart from electric.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice looking quality case., 29 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good quality and nice looking case. Dropped my iPad from the car seat with the case on, and not a mark on the pad's body. So the case provides some sort of protection. Few people commented on the brand, and to be honest, i have bought it cause it had branding on the case. you can also fold it in to the stand. Useful when you want to watch the movie on it. Internal lining is red. Not sure if it is a real leather, but material feels just like leather and has a nice feel to it. had it for 11 month now. Not a scratch on it, apart from the one , when i dropped it on the corner. Love it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Is it a fast card reader?, 29 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Got fed up with my old USB-2 card reader. Had a hope that a USB-3 will be quicker. Did some tests with the SDHC card Transcend 10 in the new card reader. And it proved fast! wright speed 10 to 14 MB/s and read at lightning speed of 160Mb/s. 2 gig of photos (taken with my Canon 7D) took about 10 seconds to be copied from the card to the PC through USB-3 port. Absolutely delighted! With the photo files growing in size and memory cards of 16Gb are filling up quick, good read speed is a must! Using it for 2 weeks.

2.0 out of 5 stars This is nothing like Sonos CONNECT, 24 April 2015
This is nothing like Sonos CONNECT. It will only turn your existing Hi-Fi in to a Panasonic compatible streamer. So it is rather useless to anyone with latest tech as all new tech comes with some sort of music streaming function (Bluetooth or similar). For what it does you can buy any cheap 10-20 pounds device to convert your audio system in to the audio system that supports streaming. This unit does not have audio input, so that you could stream music to all of your Panasonic speakers positioned away from the source (source with only analog output like your TV). This is what i was planning to achieve: position speakers on bedside tables and stream sound from the TV through the All1 to the Panasonic All3 speakers x2 and group them as Left and Right to get a stereo effect. With Sonos Connect you can do it, but with Sonos speakers... If it had an audio input socket i would justify the cost, other-ways a £20 device not £200!
Some might say i did not study the functionality of the unit. But look at the Panasonic website and tell me if it is easy to understand what this ALL1 thing exactly does!


Konig & Meyer Wall Mount Holder for Acoustic Guitar
Konig & Meyer Wall Mount Holder for Acoustic Guitar
Price: £41.95

4.0 out of 5 stars Top quality, but some Ovations do not fit., 2 Feb. 2015
Very good quality mount. My full size Ibanez (AEG24) fits perfectly fine. The only problem is the Ovation full size. The base holding brackets should have been wider by 1" to work for the Ovation. I have 2 Ovation models Elite 1778t and CC245. The depth of the guitars will not let them slip fully in to the bottom brackets of the mount. I have managed to fit them on to the mounts, but it does not look very safe. In general the mounts of an exceptional quality, with good protection between metal parts and the guitar.
I have bought 3 mounts: 2 acoustic and 1 electric.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended, 10 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
i have managed 5 - iPhone 5 charge cycles with this device. This will "feed" my gadgets on 3 day fishing trips. Can not compare to any other make, but this is amazing for the cost. item is well built and looks nice. Recommend bright colour if you are taking it out on the trips so you can see it in the grass.
Highly recommended.

2.0 out of 5 stars Look elsewhere if you need good quality., 10 Oct. 2014
Holdall did not fulfil my expectations. Thin material is used. Not much padding if any. The whole thing folded fits in to the 3L bag. You could fit 2-3 of them in to the Tesco bag.
Item is now sent back, but set me back £5 for the return shipping.
I can see some people being OK with this quality, bout it was not for me.

Mario Kart 8 (Nintendo Wii U)

5.0 out of 5 stars The game to make you buy the Wii U, 1 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Had game pre-ordered more that a month ago. Received delivery on the 30th in the morning. Immediately tried.
This is even better than the Mario Kart Wii. Review is coming late (1/6/14) as was playing it all day yesterday. Did not have time to comment on the quality of the game :)
Can not recommend it enough.
This game is enough to make a lot of people buy the Wii U!
