      If you want to really hate vacuuming, get one of these. The drum bit rotates and can come open when carrying it, and the main tube just isn't fit for purpose - it continually falls off in your hand, often onto your toes just to really rile you. Don't get me started on the suction, please avoid, you owe it to yourselves!

      Absolute garbage and I suspect these have been taken off market. I bought one and it caught fire. Contacted Russell Hobbs and lo and behold it was my fault I hadn't changed the filter, but as a token of goodwill replaced it. Just found out my wife won't use it as it appears to have a similar fault and smells of burning when switched on, unfortunately I got the replacement some months ago and this one is going in the skip.

      Awful vacuum cleaner. First time I used it, it was fine (I've only had it six months). Now, despite emptying it after every use, changing the filter, and checking the tubes are not blocked, it has hardly any suction. My old Electrolux 1300 watt was tons better.

      DO NOT BUY THIS HOOVER

      I had just moved into my new house and desperatly needed a new hoover as I dumped my old one while packing to force myself to buy a new one as it had well and truely served its time.

      I found this Russell Hobbs one for about £50 and as a 2000w hoover claiming to be super powerful and perfect for pets with its pet cyclonic bagless cylinder I thought I had found a perfect bargain and went ahead and bought it.........

      However, I was very wrong, it is a terribler hoover, suction is awful my old knackered one was alot better.
      If you do not empty the cylinder about every other time you use it the suction is practically non existant! and I don't even have pets!

      I honestly hate this hoover, to add to the annoyance of this rubbish peice of equipment the hosey plastic cylinder thing does not stay connected to the hoover itself, it has traces of glue on it were it must have been glued so after a week or so of really annoying hoovering experiences I got some majourley super super glue from my dad who is a builder, I don't know what he uses it for but it has done the trick anyway.

      My hoover is only about 3 months old and I just can't take it anymore I am going to have to invest in another hoover...very dissapointing indeed

      It looks nice, white with black dots at least it lives up to one thing, the dalmation print...yay... that should come in handy. When I go crazy from my house needing so badly hoovered at least I can go out and walk it up and down the street!

        Fantastic hoover with numerous attachments

        I needed a new hoover seeing as I already have a dyson however find it far too heavy to carry upstairs and wanted something smaller but just as effective. To be honest I didnt think it was possible to find one.
        I found one of these on a site for less than £50 and thought for a 2000w hoover i couldnt go wrong. When it was delivered I tried it straightaway ad was amazed at how powerful it was. It comes complete with various attachments including a little crevice tool that is great for down the side of sofas or up against skirting boards. It also comes with some air fresheners that you pop in the cylinder and these leave a lovely gragrance after you have hoovered.
        The cord is really long too and automatically pings traight back in when you press the utton rather than getting tangled. A real steal for the money.

          Good value for money and effortless cleaning.

          I was very impressed from the snippet of a review about this product when I was on a hunt for a vacuum cleaner.After being swamped by different brands.I finally managed to make the right decision which was to a larger extent financially biased.

          The feeling I had about this vacuum cleaner is the same I had when I bought something else for everyday use in the home.However my feelings were compounded when I got hold of this wonderful product.For under 50 pounds at the time this was by far a very good investment for my home.

          It is from a trusted brand to begin with and has it's underlying statement that it will give a spotless clean.I was up for the challenge and I must say I got more than I had bargained for. Everyday is a joy whenever I think of cleaning my house.The product does most of the work for itself.Only it requires you to direct it and monitor for blockages.

          What the product comes with is as follows:

          A turbo brush,big brush,hose(with nozzle),extendable tube ,crevice tool/small brush,a spare HEPA filter and a small bag of vac fresheners.

          The benefits that you will get with this vacuum cleaner are :

          Long 5m power cord with cord rewind.It neatly stores the cord inside the cleaner.

          Variable suction control.It allows suction to be adjusted for efficient cleaning of all types of surfaces from hard floors to soft furnishings and rugs.

          It has a dual purpose floor head nozzle.That can be used on carpets and hard floors.A bonus of a turbo brush.Powerful rotating brush.Ideal for pet hair pick up.Loosens deeply embedded dirt,fibres and hairsand brushes them into the nozzle.It gives the carpet the grooming effect of an upright with the high suction of a cylinder.

          The other attractive benefit is 2000WATTS power suction.

          It is bagless that means easy to clean and high efficiency HEPA Filters trap particles as small as 0.3 microns.To simplify the smallest dirt your eye can't see.It gives extremely high retention of dust and clean air in the room.

          Easy to remove washable filters to keep the vacuum working at peak performance for clean air and high suction.

          Multi-Height metal telescopic tube.That enables you to adjust the height to suitb your individual needs.Adaptable for different cleaning tasks and closes for storage.

          The product comes in a nice dalmaltian colour and thought at first it was for those people with dogs.The assembling before use is simple and straightforward.Very light to carry around and does the job beyond satisfaction.Doesn't require large storage facility as it can be easily disassembled that is the minor bits.

          The manual is easy to read and has the address , phone number and website on who to contact when the need arises.It also covers how to care for the cleaner.

          I thoroughly recommend this product to anyone wondering on which cleaner to pick in this flooded market.
