Advantages: Lightweight and easy to move around.
Disadvantages: A little noisy, hose tends to clog.
My new charcoal grey carpet looked good but as it has a very deep pile I found it extremely difficult to vacuum using my sanyo upright cleaner, it being on the heavy side. After a week or two of struggling to push the vacuum over it, I thought the purchase of a lightweight, cheap vacuum was needed.
Firstly I purchased a Woolworths ex stock basic vacuum from Poundstretcher, as Woolworths had ceased to trade by then. On noticing no hose or crevice tool, I returned this unused.
Next stop, Sainsbury's where I looked at their own brand, basic lightweight cleaner but I found this far too heavy and it didn't look particularly well made.
On shopping in Asda, I spotted the Bissell Easy Vac for a very reasonable price, in my opinion of £30. It went onto the trolley and to the checkout.
I am quite pleased with this vacuum. It picks up well which is the main thing. The best thing about this model from my point of view is the fact that it is light in weight and easy to manoeuvre, which is a must for me. It is light enough to carry upstairs. The hose isn't long enough to vacuum the stairs but it is small enough to rest on a stair while cleaning. It is bagless and very easy to empty. Also, this vacuum is small and easy to store.
It is on the noisy side but I don't really find this a problem. A longer hose would make this a better vacuum. Dust tends to clog in the hose.
It blows out quite a lot of air. Needs emptying frequently, though not really a problem as this is quick to do.
I don't regret purchasing this as it seems to do the job easier than most upright vacuums would. As a second cleaner it's ideal. It would be good for the elderly to use or anyone with muscular problems.

Summary: Overall I'm satisfied with this vacuum. It was what I wanted.
