      Much better than a dyson!

      I love this hoover! You might think it's made to be so attached to a hoover, but before this I was using my mother in law's old dyson (she actually hated the dyson and bought a henry too) and I really struggled. It was heavy, unwieldly, confusing and did lose suction too frequently.

      Eventually we got fed up and purchased the henry xtra for about half the price of the dyson and had our fingers firmly crossed.
      We've not once had a problem with it, and during the time we have had it we have also done a lot of renovation work on the house so this has been used to hoover up chunks of brick and plaster and an amazing about of builders dust. Although henry did look a little worse for wear after all the building work, it is designed very simply so is very easy to wipe clean again.

      It does come with about 5 attachments, different brushes etc, but I have to say that quite often I use the hose with no attachment on it as this is really good for hoovering up a contained spillage e.g. food that my toddler has dropped. The main floor attachment can be flipped with an easy nudge of the toe to suit either carpet or hard floors (wood or tile). There are two settings on the hoover, normal and powersaving (so the suction isn't as strong) but to be honest I don't really see the point of this and I tend to only use it on the higher setting. The power cord is a good length and has a feature where it can unwind itself further if you are pulling th hoover along. This is great as you don't have to unplug and move the hoover everytime you go into a different room.

      I have only once had a problem with this losing suction and that was when I accidentally hoovered up a sock. This had got wedged in the pipe and was easy to get to by simply taking the attachment off the hose. As I said before, it can cope well with almost anything that you want to hoover up.

      One downside is that neither of my two local supermarkets stock the replacement hoover bags, so I tend to stock up every now and then when going to the hardware store. The bags do not need changing very frequently and when you do have to it is a simple job, as the top of the hoover clips off and on very easily.

      very good and does a descent job easily transported from room to room

      Numatic Henry Xtra HVX 200-22
      Has 2.38gallon bag capacity cleans all areas well. Great sucky sucky.
      So does a bang up job on cleaning the toughest surfaces. I was well impressed.
      My daughter has one and while I was staying with her I had ample opportunity to give this little darling a test drive as it were.
      What did I make of it?
      It did a very good job on the carpets so much so that it very nearly took them too. It cleaned off all the kiddies mess and the dog hairs were destroyed without trace. Impressive. Great suction and lift. Worked well on carpets of all types and the smooth floors of the kitchen and bathroom areas too.
      Removing the bag was simple and straightforward and changing these were easy. Although my daughter managed to obtain a reusable variety.
      Don't know whether this came with or she adapted it from a previous hoover.
      either way this worked well too.
      Saved on mess and believe me I have used some messy hoovers before in my time. I personally have a bagless variety and this is good too but you have to remove the whole container and take it too the bin to get rid of all the build up. Messy.
      So this hoover made a nice cleaner change.
      Would I buy one when my own hoover dies a death?
      Yes I would without a shadow of doubt I believe the cost to be around £180 - £210 but it would be worth every penny.
      Easy to use not too heavy and can drag it about from room to room without too much hassle cleans well and sucks up anything what more could you want.
      Loads of tools for the crevises and curtains too.

      Great hoover that you can't help but smile at!

      We bought this hoover from Argos for about £140.00 round about a year ago and it's not once let us down. As a household with kids and many pets including 2 cats and a very hairy dog we opted for the Henry Xtra. Pet hairs are no problem for this hoover, we actually find it so powerful that when hovering the rug of pet hairs we keep the setting on low otherwise it tries to suck up the rug as well. We have found on many occasions that Henry has eaten one of the children's socks that have been left lying around and it still doesn't lose suction.

      We have many floor surfaces including stone floor, floorboards, carpets and laminate flooring and it is fantastic for all of them. We can drag it from one surface to another with no problems at all. We actually have two different hoovers (the wife doesn't like carrying it up and down the stairs!) and we have decided that when the other branded hoover breaks we will be replacing it with another Henry.

      Henry comes with five attachments which include a turbo brush, dusting brush, crevice tool, floor nozzle and upholstery tool and there is even a bag supplied to put them in. The power cord is so long that we don't have to keep unplugging it to go from room to room which saves you so much time. You can buy the replacement bags from Argos for about £6 and they are very easy to take out and change.

      The only downside to this hoover is that we find it very noisy and quite heavy, however, having said that I would still highly recommend it to anyone looking for a nice powerful hoover that will suck up all the pet hairs (and the odd sock) with no problems at all.

        Gets the job done, nothing more, nothing less.

        I don't really like cleaning and was looking for something simple, easy and fun to use to get the job done. The Henry Xtra does all of these things and for a first-time buyer I was really impressed.

        As I own animals, I wanted a hoover that could provide me with some kind of odour control to stop my house from smelling like a pigsty. Now, you'll be surprised to know it comes with a filter system that is supposed to help with this, and it must work as since I've been using it, my house isn't smelling as bad as it used to.

        The suction is great. It's only a small machine but doesn't it pick up dirt well. What I found amazing is it even picks up those little flicky bits that seemed to be glued to the carpet. In twenty minutes hoovering, I nearly finished the whole house.

        The aesthetics are very pleasing. As vacuum cleaners go, it's a pretty nice to look at and actually makes me smile whenever I get it out to do the dreaded hoovering. It boasts a solid design. It actually fell down the stairs and seemed unfazed. It's very robust for it's size.

        It's very easy to move around. Transferring from carpet to wood, you don't even notice it. The manufacters didn't get stingy when it came to cable length. I only needed to change plug sockets when I went from downstairs to upstairs and vice versa.

        The automatic cable rewind is a very nice touch. It makes storing quick and easy, as I could go from hoovering to packing away in less than a minute.

        Downsides, I don't know if this was a fault of my machine or generally, but I found if I pulled it too hard by the spout, it would actually come off. Also, I wouldn't say it is a quiet vacuum cleaner. It seemed to be noticeably louder after emptying out the contents than beforehand.

        So if you want a hoover that picks up dirt easy, you will have to make a few sacrifices as it won't be quiet and the noozle may come off if pulled, but on the whole it recieves my recommendation.

        A top class hoover

        Like the original Henry Hoover this a truely excellent, high powered hoover.
        It has the same look as the regular Henry, the only difference really being that it says Henry extra on it and has a red foot instead of a black one and is roughly around £3o more expensive.
        This hoover comes with upholstery nozzle, crevice tool, dusting brush and air turbo power brush.

        If I am honest, yes, it is a great hoover but I was extremley happy with regular Henry and dont see Henry extra to have all that much extra really other than price and a little bit more suction with the air turbo power brush which makes it great for pet hair.

        My mum has had regular Henry for a couple of years and I always thought it was great so when I was buying one I though I may as well get Henry extra but would have been as happy with the regular model.

        Watts - 1200
        Capacity - 9.0l
        Cord - 10m
        Weight - 6.9 kg
        Hepa - No
        Hose - 2.4m

        All stats are the same for regular Henry other than he is a Hepa hoover.

        I bought my Henry extra for £136.99 from Argos and the original Henry is on averge around £100 in different stores
