    So far so good!


    We bought this vacuum cleaner a few months ago and we're not disappointed. It's been an excellent product so far - it's quite powerful and very easy to use on carpet or tiles. It's also very light so you can carry it easily around the house. Good value for money!

    Easy vacuum.


    Easy vacuum cleaner to use, functions well. Really good suction and cleans my tiles and rugs with ease. Can be a little painful to manoeuvre but none more so than other vacuums of this make. Cord length is long enough for an apartment. Small enough for easy storage. Would be better design if accessories had somewhere to go.

    Worst vacuum cleaner I have ever owned.


    Where to start. The hot air blows from the side of cleaner on to you as your cleaning-ridiculous. The hosing is so short that you can't get a good reach and you have to pick the cleaner up to clean bench tops etc. Doesn't move very freely-only one front swivel wheel, two fixed back wheels. Vacuum cleaner head is very poor quality-also flips from carpet setting and scratches timber flooring-was advised by sales person that it would be great for timber floors. Very noisy (to be expected from vacuum) but with an extra sound that sounds like its whining. Need to use an extension cord as the power cord is very short. Very disappointed to have spent my money on this product.
