Advantages: Eye catching, long lasting, easy to use.
I've had this hoover for absolutely ages, which must say something about its quality, and it's still going strong - I think it's about eight years old now, so it's not the most modern and up to date of vacuum cleaners, but it really does a good job and is good looking and reliable as well.
-ooo- The Product -ooo-
This product has a really eye catching design, and looks much more interesting than other vacuum cleaners - it is all in big, bright yellow and purple colours, which a see-through cylinder for the dust and dirt to collect in, so you can see when it's filling up. It has three different heads for the detachable arm - one with a brush, one that's wide and flat and one that's long and thin and good for getting into gaps. These heads clip onto the hoover when you're not using them, so they all stay together and don't get lost.
The hoover has a long lead that loops around the back on two hooks and is easy to wind up and store away. It's very easy to take it apart or change over heads etc. as it's really well-designed. Although it looks a little dated now, and more modern models of this product have been brought out, it's still appealing and not as boring and ugly as other brands.
-ooo- Would I Recommend? -ooo-
Personally, I've never had any problems at all with this hoover - it's reliable, easy to use and does a great job. It feels a little like it's lost a bit of its suction power over the years, but is still effective. It's so easy to remove the dirt, as it's a bagless vacuum - you just snap open the middle and take it out and tip it in the bin, then put it back in empty. It takes seconds, and takes a lot of hassle away. I like the different heads, which make it easy to clean in hard to reach places or on different surfaces and find it's got good reach, with a long cable.
Overall, I think this is a great hoover from a reliable brand who design really good machines. It does a great job and I'm going to keep using for as long as it works.
Summary: A great value buy.
