I was advised to purchase this by a sales person in B&Q who informed me it was the better model on the market. In terms of cost comparision it was fairly evenly matched so we went for this model on his recommendation. - I will never trust a man again!

Whilst this model may suit technically minded men who like things as complicated and as technical looking as possible - I'm afraid it doesn't suit me.

Admittedly it does suck well. Very well. It is easy to carry as it has a shoulder strap, but is heavy to use as a conventional hand held vac. Has a very strong suction and compares well to my dyson in terns of power. (though my dyson is a bit old and the filters are somewhat clogged)

There are a variety of attachments that come with it, it sucks, blows and inflates (handy for our daughter's ball pool among other things). But it has one major deign flaw. The different attachments all attach differently. This is diffcult to explain but I will try: You can attach a regular vacuum end directly into the end, but if you wanted a hose, or a longer attachment you have to attach it via one or two different attachments. All of the attachments are black and look very similar. There are numbers on them to indicate which attachment fits with which other one, but when you are trying to clean up - to be frank its a right pain!

Normally we just leave the regular vacuum end on it and then go fishing in the bag (which comes with it) for any other attachments as and when we think we need them. Be warned this change of attachments usually takes 5-10 minutes once you've found exactly the right ones you need and the right order they go in!

Otherwise it's easy to empty and needs no bag.

The changing of the attachments would drive me mad so I won't ever consider one of these. :-)

A compact review that shows most of the bad points about this hand held - it certainly looks bulky compared to others on the market. More info here about the cleaner, its power and ease of use other than tools will gain more ratings for you.
