I've had this vacuum for a while now and although it was good at first I need desperately to find a new one.
First point. The 2000w does provide good suction, but only with the tools. The main part of this looses suction easily through noise and heat.
Second point. If you want to pick up pet hair or lint from socks etc, then you have to go over it more than a few times, which is not easy considering how heavy it is, you might as well use a brush, or as I have many times, do the whole house with the hand tool.
Third point. The filter is not easy to clean.
Conclusion. Don't waste your money, buy a lightweight cyclonic vacuum. VAX actually sell a good one for around £90.
