    5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent little vacuum, great value for money 30 Dec 2008
    This vacuum cleaner is very small and efficient. Noise wise, its just like any other vacuum I've used, and it works wonders on my hardwood floor, I wouldn't know about carpet!

    I bought the pet version as my fiancé has long hair, and it gets everywhere, hoping that this could cope with it, and it can!

    The push-around pole that comes with it is really long, but adjustable in 1-inch increments, and it coems with what I call a "normal" attachment for pushing round floors, the crevice tool, brush thingy, and the turbo tool, which is just like the spinning brushes you get on the bottom of an upright vacuum (but obviosuly you can maneouver it anywhere!)

    The 6 year warantee is excellent, I believe they even pay for the shipping costs should you need to get it fixed. With so many things breaking a year after you buy them, this was the deal clincher for me. Don't forget to register for it though!

    UPDATE: to those who are saying "it fills up too quickly" etc etc - yes it does, it's a small hoover. If you want to get the max out of your hoover (and want it to last a long time) actually READ the maintenance instructions that come with it and clean the filters regularly. I empty the chamber after every time i use it (hardly rocket science) and have had no loss of suction in 6 months now. For those complaining about the lack of a wattage rating, the whole system is pants, as that just tells you how much electricity the motor draws, and not the sucking power. you could get a 4000W hoover that was 10% efficient at sucking and it would beat a 100W that was 100% efficient (gross exaggeration).

    5.0 out of 5 stars Vax Mach 1 Review 26 Oct 2008
    Vax VZL-7071P Mach 1 Pet Cylinder Vacuum Cleaner

    I am very please with my new vacuum cleaner. It is easy to use, light enough to pull around the room with ease, good suction and comes with a turbo tool that is excellent at getting pet hair and dust from the sofa/curtains. On the amusing side it sounds like a small jet engine when switched on, lol!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Great for Pets ! 29 Oct 2008
    This is an excellent cylinder, and looks really stylish too. The Turbo Tool is great for picking up cat hair. Easy to use and store and even comes with a 6 year guarantee, should last forever !

    4.0 out of 5 stars A few niggles but overall a great buy 7 Mar 2009
    By kalavo
    Verified Purchase
    I've had this for a few months now and find it to be a great hoover. The suction is great and it doesn't clog up at the first sign of fluff but on the down side the floor head isn't a great fit so it falls off when trying to vacuum nooks and crannies. The on-board storage for the additional heads is a bit dodgy (on the handle of the hose) and seems to fall off if you even look at it. Overall i would recommend it - I paid 75 on amazon and now see that it's down to 60, so it's great value for money too.

    4.0 out of 5 stars vax mach 1 vacuum cleaner 1 Feb 2009
    This vax works very well, especially the turbo head which picks up well on flat carpet. It's excellent value for money at the Amazon price.
    The only small problem is that the where the hose connects to the steel pipe, it is a poor push fit and could give trouble in the future.

    1.0 out of 5 stars Started off well but soon declined! 24 Jan 2010
    Purchased this about 12 months ago and based my decision on the number of good reviews on Amazon along with a great price. I can only think people must have reviewed this shortly after receiving the vac. It was great when I first had it; loads of suction, light and had a fantastic cable storage mechanism (that has never worn out). However, only a month or so after our purchase, the head cracked (I note another reviewer had the same problem). I purchase a new head from ebay (only a fiver and was better than the manufactures own) and we were o.k. for about anther 5 months. At this time we noticed the suction had greatly decreased. after cleaning everything out it became slightly better but not as good as new. It became increasingly difficult to vac the floors, especially carpets. I can't imagine it being any good for pet hairs! As a result, I now use it on the car and purchased a better vac for the home!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Vax Mach 1 review 11 Jan 2009
    Great vaccuum cleaner - bought it to replace cheap Tesco model which always clogged up. Vaccuum is great despite watts being lower than previous cleaners I've owned. Turbo cleaner is very handy tool. Great value for money (bought for 78.29). Delivered within 2 days.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Vax VZL-7071P Mach 1 Pet Cylinder Vacuum Cleaner 5 April 2009
    Very pleased with this cleaner! Always had a DYSON before,so was a bit wary to change models. This cleaner is powerful, relatively quiet, and easy to handle. Not had it for long, so hope it continues to perform well, and last as long as my Dysons did!

    This is a great little vacuum - strong suction, small enough to store easily in a small flat and plenty of attachments.
