As Handy As Henry

Advantages: Bag lasts quite long, great features
Disadvantages: Suction is quite poor, filter clogs quickly
When my beloved Henry Hoover died in June (sob!!), I was hard pushed to find another that would be qutie as good as him (Yes, I personify Henry). He had lasted me over three years so I wasn't used to the vacuum market and had no clue as to what vacuum brands were considered efficient and effective. Granted, all I needed was something to suck up the dirt, but I didn't want anything that would need repairs often or need to be replaced soon. This particular brand caught my eye on amazon and I had heard great things about Samsung Vacuums from friends.
I love the design of this brand. I bought the red one to add a dash of colour to the household as the black was a tad dreary. Also, I found that the red colour was cheaper overall in price so in my mind, a bargain was received. Overall Euro119.99 was a good price to pay for a vacuum.
This vacuum is not bagless, but with a capacity of nearly 4 litres, it's not a regular occurence that I must change the dust bag. So far, in the four months I have owned it, the bag has only been changed twice (bear in mind, I have many carpeted areas in my household and vacuum every second day!!). This actually is quite a surprise to me because my last vacuum cleaner had to be changed quite frequently, even though the capacity was quite similar. I buy replacement bags from Amazon, which cost £4.02 for a pack of five. However, I do notice that the filter clogs quite quickly which can become a bit of a nuisance.
The suction as a whole is not quite as good as previous vacuum cleaners I have used, but it does the job and lifts all the dirt from my carpet. Sometimes I find that I have to repeatedly cover an area to do that though, but it gets done which is the main point.
The remote handle is ..... AMAZING!! I can get into corners everywhere, it's great. I am quite tall, so the large extendable brush is just perfect. The plug cord reqinds into the machine which is also great as it keeps the place quite neat and makes storing it easy as pie. I love the fact that there is both a hard and soft head which means I can clean my wooden floor boards effectively and efficiently with no scratches, just as well as my carpets. It also includes a bag full indicator which lights up when the bag needs to be replaced.....quite handy!!
A GOOD SOLID CLEAN!!
