Our last washing machine (a Hotpoint Aquarius) gave up the ghost after a very respectable 9 years and after looking around for similar spec machines for a reasonable price we settled on the LG F1256QD. We were interested in the Direct Drive system as our Hotpoint was decommissioned due to the drum bearings and the LG Direct Drive system does not have bearings. We've had the LG for 2 months now and are really happy. It is quick, quiet and washes very well. We also now have a little family ritual to do a little dance when the LG plays its end of cycle musical jingle - it is a very jolly little tune and strangely makes us smile every time - I'm sure it may get annoying after a few years!
Another useful feature is the time remaining display so we can see immediately how long the wash has left - which is very helpful when you are doing multiple washes in a day (we have 3 kids under 7 so have lots of washing!).
All in all it is a good product for a good price and we are very happy - we would most definitely recommend it.
