    5.0 out of 5 stars WOW! This vacuum is fabulous! 19 April 2012
    By Marce
    Verified Purchase
    I've had a Dyson upright for the last 6 years and thought about replacing it with another, however I couldn't bring myself to spend 300 on a vacuum cleaner. The reviews of the Morphy Richards Never Loses Suction 73231 Family and Pets Compact Bagless Cylinder Vacuum Cleaner, Purple were uniformly good so I decided to give it a go despite being suspicious of how good it could be for such a bargain price! The suspicions were most definitely unfounded.

    It's easy to put the few parts together to assemble; the instruction book clearly tells you how to empty it and clean the various filters which is an incredibly easy process; but most of all, the suction is outstanding! I had previously vacuumed with my old Dyson yesterday and re-did it today with the new Morphy Richards - oh my - the volume of dirt and dust that came out of my carpets was unbelievable!

    So if like me you think perhaps this vac is too cheap to be any good - Stop! Just buy one. Possibly my best ever purchase for the home! (Sad, I know...)

    5.0 out of 5 stars What a little beauty! 4 Jan 2013
    Verified Purchase
    It works. It really works. And not just a little but a lot. If it were a man I would marry it and have its children. I had been let down so badly in the past (talking about the vacuum, not men. Well, ok, men too) and had retired two other pet vacuums because they were so rubbish. When I say retired I, of course, mean cursing them soundly, weeping tears of frustration and dumping then in the spare room so they were out of my sight.

    This one, however, is fabulous. It's so powerful I had to turn the suction down otherwise the rug would have come up. The cat almost got it too. But, serves it right for dashing past like that. Speaking of which, this vacuum is great for sucking up all those pesky pet hairs, or cat fluff, which is why I got it in the first place. Actually does what it says on the box. Easy to empty, carry about and move around. I even like the colour. Good on rugs, carpets or hardwood floors. I have all three and cannot fault it.

    Bargain price for such a great, little vacuum. Don't despair if you have two black cats and cream carpets (I didn't plan it that way, honest!) and don't want to spend over 200 on a Dyson or Miele, just get this instead. Now, instead of taking over an hour to vacuum a medium sized dwelling, it's all done in about 20 mins. Time for a cuppa.

    4.0 out of 5 stars So many positives 3 Jan 2012
    By Four Violets VINE VOICE
    Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
    There are so many positives:
    There's a really good suction, which remains strong even when it's almost totally full - and a very strong extendible tube. It's compact to put away when not in use.
    It comes with two heads - one has carpet/wood etc option and one is an all in one head. We have all wooden floors so use the larger all-in-one.
    This head swivels really easily - it is more of a ball and socket action, great for stairs when you're at a different level.
    The additional accessories are handy - brush add on for upholstery etc (it's designed for people with pets) and a thinner one to get around and behind things like radiators.
    It's really simple to empty - no mess.
    It's easy to put back together after cleaning and adding/removing parts.
    We don't have pets but it would probably be great for getting rid of dog/cat hairs.

    Noise - wise it's quieter than our previous vacuum cleaner.

    Only one slight negative: it's quite heavy.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent hoover for a family home 22 Jun 2012
    Verified Purchase
    Our old dyson (that I never liked!) finally died, and we needed a replacement. We are a family of 2 adults and 3 children plus a puppy, so needed something robust, and we also have a lot of stairs! I ruled out an upright hoover, as I have found them a nightmare on stairs, so wanted a cylinder this time.

    Its attachments fit perfectly, easy to change between different cleaning heads. It comes with a normal vacuum head, a turbo head (suitable for pet hair on upholstery etc), a brush and a thin nozzle for getting into the corners of the room and along the skirting boards. The brush and thin nozzle are stored in the handle. The brush stays put, but the thin nozzle won't stay in while you're vacuuming.

    It vacuums easily and very powerfully. We've lost several bits of lego now ;-) The on/off button is easy to reach with your foot, the automatic cable wind button is fantastic (I really missed this on our old dyson!), and the hose has a notch that slides into a grip on the side of the vacuum body, so it all stores in one complete unit.

    I haven't found anything I don't like about it yet! Even the colour is just right.

    5.0 out of 5 stars The very best vacuum of this type for this price 30 Mar 2013
    By Michou
    Verified Purchase
    I waited a while before giving feedback as this is the 3rd vacuum I've bought in the last year and all have been returned with some problem or other. This once is fantastic Morphy Richards are not known for their vacuum cleaner but at that price it is a first rate product; great suction, easy to assemble and disassemble (not like most of these cheaper vacuum that rely on plastic bits somehow clicking together and mostly being awkward to get to the right action), easy to empty, great action on wheeling it around and long cord. Answers all my needs and I have a super hairy dog that sheds all the time, hardwood floors with rugs, a log burner and therefore bits of wood and ash around fireplace, and I live in the country so lots of mud and grit brought in my dog. This machine deals with all of it efficiently and is easy to use. Can't imagine that a Dyson would be any better and this is very reasonable. Bravo and Thank you Morphy Richards for a great little machine.
