Advantages: Condensor, easy to use, large capacity
Disadvantages: Stopped working after 2 years
This tumble dryer was one of the cheaper models and I'd never heard of BEKO but seemed to tick all the boxes for what I wanted so decided to try it.
It's energy rated C which isn't normally a good rating but I don't think any tumble dryers are economical, just convenient! And that's good enough for me!
The best feature is that there is a moisture sensor so when it senses the laundry is dry, it stops and hence saves energy and money. It is much better than a timer tumble dryer which may have dried your laundry after 40 minutes but as you've set it for an hour it'll waste 20 minutes of energy and money.
The machine loads from the front so you can stack it with your washing machine if space is limited. The water collection is on the front and you just pull it out and pour it away. The condensor unit is also on the front and requires rinsing once a month to remove fluff. I just run it under the shower for a few minutes-Easy!
We have had this for nearly 2 years and it's still going strong.
For the price I would definately recommend it
****** UPDATE MAY 2012 *********
I must have jinxed myself with my last but one sentence! This tumble dryer started making an awful noise and stopped heating up and drying the washing. I was advised that to repair it would cost nearly as much as a new one and ended up buying a new tumble dryer (A different make and model) To some, 2 years is acceptable for a tumble dryer to last but I expected it to last longer than it did so I'm a bit disappointed.
Summary: You get what you pay for
