Advantages: Cheap, attractive
Disadvantages: Long cycle times, bad hot wash results
Mixed feelings about this machine, the 40 degrees, 50 & 60 degree cycles work very well, producing good cleaning results, each of these cycles take between 60-90 mins ( a little long I think!)
I have a problem with the 95 degree cycle, in which I do my whites including my sons bodysuits (which have all manner of grime on them). At this temperature you expect your clothes to come out pristine, unfortunatley they do not, it stubbornly refuses to shift a lot of the stains, and I sometimes get better results using the 60 degree wash. Also the hot wash takes a whopping 120 (yawn) minutes to complete.
The machine itself is attractive, but the powder drawer is not wide another to fit ariel tablets in (i have to break them down first).
It is resonably priced though. A good first buy, or if you don't have children!!!
