This Black and Decker GW2600 Blower Vac is a pretty good vacuum/leaf blower all in all. Its a little heavy but I think they all are. Its also quite noisy so you wouldn't want to be doing it early on a Sunday morning if you have neighbours who like a lay in!
One thing though that could be better is the power switch - currently its either 1 or 2 - however, it woud be much better if it just had a variable dial so you could turn the power up or down.
In part of our garden we have granite chippings which on level 1 any leaves that are slightly damp wont pick up well on this setting, but on levle 2 you hear this unnerving 'clunk clunk clunk' as the granite chippings are passed through the shredder - Id imagine that's not great for the blades.
Apart from that though it definitely does the job - its perfect on the patio when the leaves are dry.
