“Great value for money”

Written on: 25/01/2017 by SteveOnabeach (1 review written)

Don't understand all the negative reviews on this vacuum. I've had one for 2 years and it's a powerful little machine easily coping with its job, doesn't overheat or cut out and is simple to empty and clean. Tip out the dust regularly, wash filters monthly and that's pretty much all the care it needs… Read Full Review

“Works just fine!”

Written on: 07/01/2017 by ColeMcQueen (1 review written)

I have one of these and it's a brilliant little vacuum. The suction is powerful enough to lift door mats and carpet and it picks up all sorts of dirt easily. Performance only drops when the container becomes full or when the filters clog - both can be washed in minutes. It is reliable, compact and lightweight, simple to empty and clean - what more could you expect from a low-cost cleaner? Other reviewers here have complained about hoses tripping them up and and stability issues. Just use it… Read Full Review

“Rubbish”

Written on: 18/08/2016 by Elainew430 (1 review written)

Having used this hoover 6 times in a tiny bedroom it made a loud whirring sound then went bang and there was a strong smell of burning. Possibly the worst household product I have ever purchased. Vax customer service poor… Read Full Review

“Waste of money, totally useless product”

Written on: 17/03/2015 by nzKrause114 (1 review written)

This was on offer in Asda, fairly inexpensive but I'd had a Vax before which had been quite good. This has totally put me off Vax, will not buy another. Works okay for a few minutes, then as soon as there is just a little dust & debris inside, it clogs up and all suction is lost. At best though, when it has just been emptied, the suction is very unimpressive, it just pushes the crumbs & fluff around the carpet & you have to go over & over the same area without much effect. The metal hose keeps… Read Full Review

“rubbish!”

Written on: 14/08/2014 by AmyBerry (1 review written)

I would not recommend this hoover. I am on my second hoover the same as this. It takes me about 5 hours just to hoover one room because of how rubbish it is because it keeps cutting off and I have to wait about half an hour for it to come back on again. That's just after having it on for 5 minutes! I will not be getting this hoover again. Do not buy this. It is now 11:20 and I am still in my pyjamas because I am still waiting for the hoover to cone back on as I am waiting to have my shower!!… Read Full Review

“CAUTION REQUIRED”

Written on: 13/01/2014 by belowstairs (1 review written)

I bought this from Asda who refused to publish this review. The metal tubes are too short, causing back pain after extended use. The hose is too long, creating a dangerous trip hazard in tight spaces (I stood on and tripped over the hose several times in the early stages before I learned to be very careful). The power cord is barely long enough. The cable rewind is good. The tools are mostly too small but the crevice tool is too big. The bristles of the dusting tool are too short and too… Read Full Review

“Worthless Guarantee”

Written on: 13/11/2013 by DennisTurner (1 review written)

I am an ex-pat living in Portugal. Just seven months ago I purchased this machine in UK and took it home (Portugal). The motor has burned out with very limited use after just six months, I contacted the customer support at VAX to be told that I have invalidated the guarantee by taking the product out of UK. In these days of increased trade via the internet and bearing in mind Portugal is part of the EU I think the 500,000 or so expats in Europe should be made aware of the unfair fine print… Read Full Review

I bought this from a supermarket for less than £50. Suction is good and it isn't too noisy… Read Full Review
