I wanted a small, light vacumm cleaner to leave upstairs so the big heavy Vax vacuum/shampooer didn't have to be lugged about our little cottage and narrow stairs. I read lots of reviews and this Samsung stood out as pretty much The One. Neo of Vacuums. It arrived. Excited, I unpacked and assembled. I'd vacummed the ground floor with the Vax only a few days previously so, almost defiantly, I challenged the Samsung to the same contest. Light, not too noisy, though it almost sucked the carpet off the gripper rods at 75% power.... Wow! After about 20 minutes I inspected the chamber of revolving, dusty horrors assuming it'd be almost empty. Not so. To my amazement and shame, the removable canister (which rather revoltingly resembles a filter coffee machine jug) was more than half full of gunge. Not just the odd hairball but wads of grey muck and debris.
So. The old Vax has been consigned to the shed for shampooing detail only. The nifty Samsung is reclining in the small, but newly & beautifully created, Cupboard Under The Stairs, like a thoroughbred stallion at rest.... Black Beauty (grey, actually) we are in awe of your power!!!
