      OK if you get a reliable model

      I've had this product for about 9 months now and when I first got it it was fantastic. Now its getting a bit jaded (I know how it feels) probably through over use!

      It is still great at vacuuming on carpets and it also does floor - wonderful in my bathroom. There is a nifty little dial on the front that allows you to set the rotors on underneath to different piles of carpet on a sliding scale from long pile to short pile. Other reviews I read on other sites said the flex length was inadequate but its fine for me. I can plug in in one room and travel to several others without unplugging.

      It's got a bagless cylinder which is quite small and has to be emptied regularly and I find that the filter inside gets very dusty very quickly and then has to be cleaned using a scrubbing brush or water which means you have to wait for it to dry before using it again. This is a pain, because if you don't do it it affects the performance of the machine.

      At 2000 watts this is a very powerful vacuum, and when we first got it it managed to suck up an entire set of keys. They got stuck in the pipe but it was very easy to get it to bits, extract the keys and put back together again. (The moral of the story - don't let your husband do the vacuuming!)

      There are extention nozzles to clip onto the pipe for high up cleaning and a clip-on mini-roller for vacuuming stairs, this is great when it works but recently it seems to have given up the ghost and although it sucks, the roller doesn't roll.

      Another slightly poor design is the button you press with your foot to get it lean back when vacuuming. This has now snapped and I have to force it back with a loud cracking sound every time I use it.

      Peformance-wise, it is better than my old Dyson, but it doesn't seem to be as reliable. Its also quite heavy to lug upstairs.
