Advantages: no bags!
Disadvantages: cleaning required regularly
I bought this vacuum cleaner from Argos when it was a real bargain. Apart from it being on sale, I also had a spare £20 voucher. Inspired by the excellent reviews on the Argos website, I rushed to buy the bagless super-powerful Samsung instead of our old useless Goblin vacuum cleaner. So here's the main impressions:
1. No hassle and extra expenses with bags and the cup is pretty easy to empty and clean.
2. It is really powerful. With this vacuum cleaner even a seemingly clean room will turn out to be the Kingdom of Dust and "Where does the dust comes from?" will be one more philosophical question in your life.
3. The transparent dust collector cup is very motivating. It will constantly remind you of the main purposes of hoovering and crown your hoovering sessions with a nice sense of achievement.
4. It is equipped with a set of nozzles, including one for collecting pet hair.
1. Every now and then the filter needs cleaning. And this "every now and then" occurs approximately once a fortnight. If the filter is dirty, the vacuum cleaner loses most of its power immediately.
2. I was disappointed with the customer service. A clamp detail on the filter case broke and we were asked to send the whole vacuum cleaner with a courier just to replace that small thing. We refused and bought a new case for the filter in the end. But the overall impression with the customer service was bad.
3. I noticed that most people ignore the folding handle on the top and attempt to grab the vacuum cleaner by the cup handle, which is of course not what one is supposed to do. But it seems a natural thing anyway, so I would count it as a design shortcoming.
Conclusion: It is much better than bagged vacuum cleaners, but not perfect. I wish the filter wouldn't need cleaning so often.
Summary: Perfect in many ways as long as you don't mind cleaning the filter all the time.
