I've had a Dyson upright for the last 6 years and thought about replacing it with another, however I couldn't bring myself to spend £300 on a vacuum cleaner. The reviews of the Morphy Richards Never Loses Suction 73231 Family and Pets Compact Bagless Cylinder Vacuum Cleaner, Purple
were uniformly good so I decided to give it a go despite being suspicious of how good it could be for such a bargain price! The suspicions were most definitely unfounded.
It's easy to put the few parts together to assemble; the instruction book clearly tells you how to empty it and clean the various filters which is an incredibly easy process; but most of all, the suction is outstanding! I had previously vacuumed with my old Dyson yesterday and re-did it today with the new Morphy Richards - oh my - the volume of dirt and dust that came out of my carpets was unbelievable!
So if like me you think perhaps this vac is too cheap to be any good - Stop! Just buy one. Possibly my best ever purchase for the home! (Sad, I know...)
