Advantages: Excellent and wide ranging cleaning power
Disadvantages: Cumbersome and reliability problems
Would you spend over £ 300 on a vacuum. Well I did and on balance I think it has been worth it. My principle reason for getting a decent appliance is that I suffer from dust allergy. As I am a bit lazy and untidy I need an apppliance that is fun to use and does a good job.
I will list the pluses. I love all all the gadgets and attachments but it is hardly a prosaic reason for buying a vacuum. However I have a range of floor types; wood, tile, carpet and parquet as well as a concrete shed floor and I have made full use of them. If you have this floor range this appliance may suit you. It cleans all surfaces well and the extra power function on the carpet cleaner is handy. The bag changing, a bete noir with me, is easy and very, very clean. No dust is thrown in the air and you would have to be an idiot to spill it ( I haven't spilt it yet). The wire return is great, that's something else I hate doing. It also cleans corners, fireplaces and awkard areas well. It is very good at cleaning upholstery and my car. Its very good with pet hair.
However there are minuses and there should not be at this price. Firstly they had to recall it . This was rather poorly handled by the company because I had to wait in for the delivery of the packaging and the collection, that's two days. It also broke down and I had to return it again and the same awkward collection proceedure applied. However they do supply you with a spare set of bags and this is handy as they are expensive though long lasting. You also have to be slightly careful with it.as a) it is expensive and b) the complex sensors in the pipe are damaged by water. This may not suit everyone. As a final point it is rather cumbersome and this is probabaly its biggest failing..
Overall therefore if you have a house with many floor types and pets and you hate vacuuming I would spend the money. However don't assume because you have spent a lot that it is suitable for your needs. you may find something more suitable at a lower price.
Summary: Excellent if you have a wide range of floor types and dusty situations.
