I had an old Vax (Big orange and black cylinder) for years and it did the job but the Vax went on loan to child moving out and never came back so we bought a Miele two years ago (husbands choice) and very good it was too until same child hoovered out his car full of water with it! So we bought an upright Electrolux Vittessse pet lover for me and a Vax performance cylinder for him. Both have given up the ghost within the last year. Well I don't really like hovering but when I do I want something that works. After looking at the reviews I decided to buy the Sebo automatic X4 extra, it was delivered today and after 30 minutes putting it together I was away. What bliss, something that sucks up dirt, bits of Christmas debris, plastic stuff from grandchildren's toys, black sock fluff imbedded into bedroom carpet, feathers from duster and goes over rugs and hard floors without me having to play around with dials. Wow! I read a review about the weight but it wasn't an issue with me.
