I have only had this a few days and reading the reviews after buying it i was somewhat apprehensive and a little disheartened...i decided to try it out anyway! 1st time i used it i loved it! It had a powerful suction (though somewhat noisy) and did a great job on some cornflakes which my son had dropped on the rug. Bearing in mind i only have 2 carpets and a rug and the rest is wood or vinyl flooring, i find it effective for this job, though it may be a different story if i had all carpets. For £40 i cannot complain...for £40 you cannot go wrong with this, i have seen better i have seen far worse and i have paid double for hoovers that had half the performance before now. It is easy to pull around and if you pull the lead all the way out BEFORE you begin and not during hoovering then the tight cord isn't an issue at all, i can live with it. The compact design and handle on top makes it easy to move around and store and it looks really neat and cute. It turns upright so that it can sit on the stairs while you hoover them and i really like the adjustable handle too...i'm only 5 foot so fount this really useful! It's sooo easy to use but It doesn't hold much before it needs emptying, but you know that when you buy it and it's your choice whether to buy it or not on that basis...if this is important to you, don't buy it. I am not interested in the technical jargon, i don't care if it has 200w or 2000w or HEPA or cyclone...i am not daft enough to believe that these are anymore than a clever sales pitch and i don't buy a hoover on that basis, all i care about is does it pick up all the bits off my floor and the answer is a resounding YES IT DOES. You get what you pay for at the end of the day...and i knew i wasn't paying for a dyson and i didn't get a dyson but i got a jolly good alternative on the budget i had and i'm not disappointed...for now anyway! Lets just say i've kept the reciept and box safe...just incase!
