I am extremly dissatisfied with this product. It is almost identical to the V008T, except it has an extra tool, and is a different colour. The dust goes everywhere instead of just inside the dirt container. It needs new filters even though they are meant to be life filters, it is now 8 months old. But it is impossible to get hold of the filters. I've been in contact with the vax help line. One minute they tell me the filters are out of stock, next that they are sending the filters. They don't arrive. They give other suppliers tel. nos. to try but they have never heard of these filters or they are out of stock. Its been back to vax to be "repaired" but its still no better and the filters weren't changed! I just get the feeling I'm being fobbed off by vax. It is now going back again to see what they can do. I advise folk to make sure they can get the filters before purchasing a vacuum cleaner, even if the manufacturer claims they are lifetime filters.
