Firstly the good points, nice appearance, not too heavy, nice size for storage and handling purposes, cleans to the edge and a nice price as I am retired. Now the negative, I soon discovered cleaning the filter is a filthy job. My first experience was into my kitchen bin but quickly realised this was an outside job-observing the wind direction first! Despite this cleaning it soon blocked. Following the instructions which IMO are not that clear took most of the afternoon and I had two bits left over!! Today the bagless canister will not click firmly in place and has fallen off. This is a hoover which is only 3 months old!!!! I do not abuse my appliances, my last hoover lasted 15yrs or so. Conclusion, perhaps I have just been unlucky but I am now disposing of this hoover and purchasing another type recommended by my friends.

If you are an ordinary person looking for an excellent vacuum cleaner at a bargain price - then look no further.Suction is excellent (however I anticipate that the filter will need cleaning out every so often as it will affect suction as it gets clogged - this happened with a similar filter on the VAX I had), I was amazed at how much it picked up from my seemingly clean carpets! Fairly lightweight so easy to get around. Cable is sufficiently long. It really does get right up to the edges as it states, excellent for an upright.Minor irritation was the stowage of accessories onboard. They kept falling off so I find that I put them in the cupboard rather than attach them. Other than that, very pleased at a bargain price of just under £45 from theatlanticshop, I cannot complain!!

When is an appliance an appliance when it doesn't do the job? The question was posed recently when I was given a budget upright vacuum cleaner to put through its stages of cleaning. As such Goblin's Family & Pets 1600 watt upright 73286 was not given to me by Morphy Richards, the parent company behind "Goblin," but an independent cleaning company I work for from time to time if I'm not teaching or doing other jobs! It was not a trial either, but an authorative command to use the model for cleaning instead of anything else the company had in their vans or taking my own which often put the bosses' noses out of joint (they have to pay if one of my machines ...
