With it's relatively small scale, and 800w motor, it is a great deal for those who require a second vacuum for all the nooks and crannies that a conventional vacuum might not reach, or indeed perfect for those who have a small flat, mostly hard-floors, those who struggle with lifting, or a lack of storage room.
As a corded vaccum, it is literally plug in and go, and without a bag to replace it is very simple to use, although emptying will require a bit of fishing to pull out the compacted dust. Slightly top heavy, it's not really free-standing, but it does have a lengthy power cord and a significant 3 year warranty.
When vacuuming a large pile of fluff or dust, as we had to when we had some laminate floor fitted, it does seem to clog the filters, which are washable, but quite tricky to put back correctly. They do seem to do very little in terms of blocking said dust and does seem to like blowing air back into your face as you clean unfortunately. It also is quite loud considering, but this might be a design choice to keep it lightweight, removing any noise softening tech.
With its numerous attachments, as a handheld, it does pack quite a punch compared to some of its weaker 'car-vacuum-esque' counterparts, and the crevice tool certainly does work in those hard to reach places. The upholstery tools fairs slightly worse, as it doesn't seem to pick everything up on the pass, but the general floor tool does do a good job all things considered. The only criticism being that when switching to the hard-floor setting, it does become more difficult to pick up dirt on the edges, and with a low front, any larger pieces of rubbish (like the odd cat biscuit in our kitchen) were pushed around for a while.
Overall, we will reserve this a great second vacuum for upstairs. Something you can get out when a light clean is needed, or indeed, if you're doing good spring clean and need to get all those curtain rails and picture rails dusted.
