When our dyson finally died we needed a new vacuum cleaner and seeing this on sale for less than half price in Argos (and being on a budget) I decided on this one.
What a result - it's lighter, easier to use, smaller and costs less than a Dyson!
The vacuum is nice and compact and fits easily in our under stairs cupboard, it has a telescopic handle which is useful to adjust for a longer reach when cleaning or a smaller pole when storing. It is extremely light and therefore great to carry up and down stairs and to use on the stairs itself (it also stands on it's back end so can sit on the stairs as you go up).
It's bagless so no expensive bags to buy and you can easily see when it is getting full. It is easy to empty as you just push a button to remove the waste tray and then push another one when it is over the bin to empty it. It has a filter which is simple to take out and rinse clean and you can actually rinse the whole waste tray out under the tap.
We have hard wood floors, carpets and tiles in our hose and it copes well on all three floor types (with a baby and two cats it can have it's work cut out!), there is a button on the head to change from hard floors to carpet. It also has a power lever to change the rate of suction and a handy attachment to clean curtains. The other two attachments are the standard crevice and brush tools which clip on to the hose so that they are always with you. There is a good long power cord on it which automatically retracts.
In summary this is an excellent little cleaner which is light and easy to use and store, easy to empty and clean and powerful enough to do the job.
Summary: Great simple vacuum that does the job.
