My girlfriend and I have recently rented a flat. Its fully furnished the hoover it came with is absolutely rubbish so we decided to buy one ourselves. We were pretty short of cash as obviously moving was very expensive so we wanted to get a hoover as cheap as possible but that would actually work. We went round all the normal shops to try and find one. We went into Currys and came across the LOGIK L16VB10.
The first thing that attracted us was the price. At only £35 we thought it was a bargain, especially compared to other hoovers which can reach up to £300 +. Upon reading the spec we decided it would do the job well enough. It is 1600 w which sounded pretty powerful at the time of buying. The hooveris pretty well packaged and once we opened it up found it looked pretty nice too. The hoover is fairly small and light weight which makes it perfect for manouvering around the flat and especially makes it easy to store.
The hoover is great for general use. It has powerful suction and is ideal for a one bed flat. However it is not amazing at collecting smaller dust particles and will not suffice for a large house.
Old-fashioned hoovers that require bags were a no go area for us as the bags can often be fairly expensive to replace. The LOGIK L16VB10 is completely bagless which makes it very easy to empty out and means that we have no extra costs. It has two large wheels which makes for easy movement. I was also pleasantly surprised how quiet the hoover is. There is nothing more annoying than a really loud hoover, but with the Logik it seems fairly quiet compared to others I have used.
The unit has a decent length power cable, again allowing for easy use. It has two large buttons, one for power and the other to suck the cord back into the unit, which I find much better to use instead of having to manually wind the cord back up. The main suction unit is a pole with one of those bendy pipes (if that makes sense). The end can be changed with a variety of different attachments to use for different areas of cleaning i.e. getting down the back of the sofa. I like the flexibility of the hoover head and find it much better to use compared to the fixed units that can only go forward and backwards and have the flexible as an extra attachment.
We have only used it on carpet to cannot comment on the performance on wooden or laminate flooring.
All in all the hoover has been a great buy. It has been very reliable (so far) and apart from really small bits it does a great job of sucking up the dirt. I feel you will struggle to find such a great machine for such a low price. We bought ours from Currys but I believe it is available from all the shops like Comet and Tesco.
