Contrary to the other review, the suction power on this hoover is very impressive and if you check the power compared to other bagless, it comes out as one of the most powerful. My previous cleaner was a Dyson and initial use of the LG was impressive. You turn the cleaner on and off from the operating handle and it has an adjustable power switch. The compression system is very impressive, but don't understand where they got the idea that it comes out as a block of dirt?! Not when you use it for its purpose of cleaning up after pets! But give it its due, it can cram an impressive amount of waste in a small space. So far so good. Unfortunately, that's where it ends. The accessories have no way of being stored on the actual cleaner itself, which may sound a minor point, but compared to how they all attach to a Dyson, becomes a pain when you walk up and down stairs all the time. Whoever designed the accessories should be sacked. Apart from the slim nozzle, the other accessories are pretty useless. The smaller nozzle can only be used by a person the same size as the designer, who wasn't very tall. The brush tool is naff and the main handle and extender pipe doesn't really extend far enough for someone 6ft 4". Overall- a good price, suction is very powerful and the waste capacity is impressive, but it lacks the design of its Dyson rivals.
