Tesco VC207 Bagged Cylinder
Advantages: Good suction, cheap, lightweight, easy to strore.
Disadvantages: Not good for large spaces.
My Mum bought the Tesco VC207 for my Grandad as he has a small bungalow and was finding it hard to use his heavier, stand up vacuum cleaner. I do a lot of cleaning at my Grandad's and had told my Mum how difficult it was to manoeuvre a larger hoover around his small rooms which have a lot of furniture in them. Initially she just had a quick look around and wasn't intending to buy a new cleaner immediately but after seeing the VC207 in Tesco she decided to buy it for him from our local Tesco Extra. I have since bought the hoover myself as I've moved to a small rented property and don't need a bigger, more expensive, machine.The vacuum cleaner cost about £18 when my Mum bought it, however at the moment it's just over £20, there's lots of offers on at Tesco usually though and I've seen it a couple of times at a reduced price. The VC207 is available in larger Tesco stores and online at Tesco Direct.
The vacuum cleaner is made from a tough, grey and blue plastic; I wouldn't say it was the best looking of machines but certainly looks more expensive than the price my Mum paid. Inside the box is the main body the hoover which sits on the floor with a fairly long grey hose which attaches to a grey rectangular panel which houses the suction mechanism. As the hoover is cheap it hasn't got a selection of attachments, just the one which is a small brush, perfect for the edges of rooms and tricky places like skirting boards and ceiling corners.
The hoover only has a small capacity of 1.5 litres, so it's not ideal for anyone who has a lot of floor space, however for small properties though I have to say it's ideal. The vacuum is very lightweight meaning it is easy to move around, and get in all the corners, the head on the vacuum is ideal for vacuuming right up to the edges of rooms and under furniture. The machine is very easy to pick up as it's so light making it perfect for anyone with problems lifting, it also makes it a lot easier to store as it can be lifted pretty much anywhere and fits perfectly into even small cupboards. The small size does mean though that the bag will have to be emptied more than usual, the hoover did come with three bags though and I should imagine that these will last me a good six months.
As I said before, the vacuum in incredibly easy to use as it's so lightweight. I've found it picks up bits well on my carpet but is also great for the kitchen floor and the hoover has great edge cleaning I can get all the crumbs from the corners just under my kitchen cabinets. The machine does struggle with bigger bits to pick up but on the whole the suction is really effective and my floors are kept looking lovely and clean. Our flat is above a shop and I also find the hoover really good for use on the stairs as again, it can get into all the edges.
I would recommend the VC207 for anybody with a small property as it gets the cleaning done quickly with minimal effort. It's especially good for older people, my Grandad finds using his vacuum really easy now because it's much more lightweight and has no trouble moving it around from room to room. It's cheap and cheerful, it's not the best vacuum in the world but it's £20 and for that price I think you'd be hard pushed to find a better small vacuum cleaner.
Summary: 4/5 not a perfect product but it's close, for a very good price.
