This product is absolutely brilliant. I didnt think it would be as good as it actually is. I thought the power wouldnt really be there, but the suction is very adequate indeed. I wanted a Dyson DC-35, but didnt want to pay the £200 price tag, Im soooo glad I didnt, this is just perfect. I use it on my laminate, wooden, tiled, lino and carpet floors as well as carpeted stairs. I cant rave about this item enough, if you are thinking about purchasing this product, just do it as you wont be dissapointed. This product is one of the best items I have purchased to clean my house and wouldnt be without it now. It is so much easier than getting the hoover out everyday. It is so handy for using if the children make a mess to just quickly grab it and the job is done. The charge is good on it too, it lasts me a full week and more and that is using it everyday to go over the whole house. It takes a couple of hours to charge fully once a week or every 10 days. Even though I use it everyday, I still cant believe the dust, crumbs and dirt it picks up when I empty the tray, which is very easy to do. I just wouldnt be without it now!!!!
