Advantages: Small and easy to move
Disadvantages: Badly made, needs emptying after a couple of uses, picked up minimal amounts
I brought this from Asda when I moved into my flat because it was cheap at only £20. We figured that it would last us a couple of months until we had a bit more money to buy a better one. It is small at only 4kg and easy to use and it does match up to its incredibly cheap price tag, it seemed to pick up visable dirt after a few go overs. Also it needs to be emptied frequently as it has only a 1.8 litre capacity. I wouldnt reccomend using this at night or in the morning if you live in a flat like me as it is very loud.
It is a bagless cylinder hoover and has 1200 watts of power. There are no attachments as it really is very basic but it does have a HEPA filter
After about 2 weeks the whole of the front hose, which is 1.5 metres long, came off whilst I was using it and had only used it a couple of times before then. I tried to take it back and was told that although I had the receipt and the guarentee, which was supposed to be for a year, that they would not refund or replace it as it was damaged so I replaced it with one from Argos, this was quite a bit more expensive as I did not want a repeat of the one from Asda and when I used the new one I realised that the Asda hoover had actually picked up hardly anything as after using the new hoover once the amount of dirt that came off the carpet was huge!
Although its tempting to get a cheaper hoover this is one thing that I would reccomend spending a bit more money on as the budget ones just are not as good.
Comments on how I can improve my reviews would be useful as I've not done this before :)
Summary: Better to forget this one and save up for a better one
