The above-mentioned item is a hoover, which claims to be fabulous at picking up pet hair. You can buy from all leading electrical stores and catalogue companies, including Amazon, Curries, Dixons and Ebay.
It is lightweight and easy to manoeuvre around. It has the bag less cylinder, which is useful, but does mean you have to clean the filter regularly. The body of the machine is clear hard plastic, and I have only seen them in the one maroon colour. There is also an echo switch, which will reduce the electricity power to the machine, so saving energy. I am naughty, as I do not use this as it reduces the suction.
I would say for the price the performance is good. It has a strong suction, when the filter is free from too much dust. The more wattage the motor, usually the more powerful suction. This is 2000 wattage, which is high for a cylinder hoover. It comes with two main attachments one specifically for pet hair removal off carpets or upholstery, and one for the rest of the house, including wooden floors. The first time I tried the machine I was very impressed, as I have a Persian cat and he tends to leave those annoying clingy hairs to my carpet.
It is easy to maintain and once every three months or so you should take the filter totally apart and wash them. In the meantime, after each hoover you should empty the machine and wipe off the dust surrounding the filter.
Yes I would recommend this to anyone on a budget. I assume the dyson is the best for suction according to reviews. I purchased this with my nectar points, so happy with that, but they retail for around £89.

I've owned my pod for over 3 years now and it's still going strong. I like the nice colour and the fact that it fits neatly under the stairs, in what is quite a small cupboard! The hosy bit is always a bit annoying and unwieldy, but then again, that's the nature of these cleaners. I like the way the cleaner comes apart in easy bits, and the filters are washable (you get 2, too, so you're never without while one's in the wash). You do have to dismantle and 'de-clog' regularly to keep the suction good, but ergonomically, it's very good so it's not like it's an episode of Crystal Maze to put back together again! The attachments are generally good, and the two settings on the sweeper part (carpet and hard floor) are adequate (although not brilliant on the carpet setting). It's great value for money though - a good first-homeowner's cleaner. Great for a small flat, and also for hoovering up the stairs as it's nice and light to carry with you.
