Well, in the thirty plus years that I have been hoovering I've tried most brands and styles. Sometimes I've bought cheap and sometimes I've bought expensive. The one thing I always found was an overall sense of disappointment with my choice each time. Either cleaning it, using it, lugging it up the stairs, gadgets not well designed etc etc. When I bought a Dyson a few years ago for what seemed to me a small fortune I was convinced that this time would be the one. Actually, like many other people, I rapidly felt deflated. The design did not seem good, the quality seemed cheap and overall when it finally broke five years later I was quite relieved that I could justify getting a new hoover. That time I went back to cheap and guess what - I hated it!
So this time I did research online. I watched videos on Youtube, read reviews on Amazon and finally plumped for the Sebo. Oh my god, even putting it together from the box was exciting. I love it I love it I love it. It purrs around the house. With no drama at all it cleans up my golden retrievers hairs from everywhere. It smoothly changes from my carpets to my oak floors. The turbo attachment brings my settee up like new. Its lightweight, its beautifully made. After 3 weeks hoovering every day in my big old house I have still not had to change the bag. I simply cannot fault it. Me and this hoover are together for life.
