1.0 out of 5 stars Pretty useless, 26 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm afraid this was pretty useless. The plastic lid and sides were not robust enough to stay in shape and hence in place. It was a waste of money - have since invested in a Brabantia solid door bin.

5.0 out of 5 stars Impressed, 6 Nov 2010
Ordered as a second vac for dealing with upstairs (carpets, mattresses etc). It is one of the most compact models I have ever seen and is perfect for hiding away out of site.

The suction is outstanding - it far exceeds previous top quality bagless vacuums we have had including Dyson and Vax models. Working as a cleaner whilst at Uni I have also used many brands from Sebo to Numatic's Henry.

I recently learnt that the 'air watts' is the number to look for in terms of performance - which relates to suction power (not the power wattage usually given eg 2000w as in this model). A top of the range Vax or Dyson has an air watt power of around 220... this has 360w! And it really shows. The carpets have never looked so good. I was amazed that the dust just kept coming.

This is a simple hoover. It has an on/ off switch, auto-rewind cable, ergonomic telescopic handle with simple flat brush head (which goes under divans etc), small corner/brush attachment, washable filters and easily removed dust bin. That's it. Good design and easy to use.

I can't think of anything to fault it on - though this model would not necessarily be suitable for a larger house, it has certainly reduced dust levels in our home and won me other to these high powered Samsung models which look good and work magic.

4.0 out of 5 stars She loved it, 2 Oct 2010
= Durability:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Was a present for my 5 year old niece. She didn't stop playing with it after her b-day. Also her 7 year old sister was quite involved and they were able to play together, bringing out creative play in both.

Only caution is a number of small pieces which could easily be lost. Otherwise it is robust, and the easy to carry handle means its a great 'complete' toy set to take round to grandparents etc

3.0 out of 5 stars Another toy for the boys., 28 Jun 2010
This item excels against the standard jet spray attachments for one reason: The blast and subsequent spray is contained under the casing as you work over the cleaning area. Therefore... no sodden feet, ankles and knees... no mud splashed and sprayed against walls, windows and over me. That is all very good.

However, if you haven't cleaned a patio, deck or drive for a significant time then this probably is not going to have the power to shift deep mud and algae stains off in one go. It will more than certainly take two passes. So does it save time? I'll answer that in a second.

There is one more exception to this products ability to excel. Quite simply - the mud and grime you remove tends to just sit where you have passed. If you are using the standard jet attachments you can easily direct the water away with a sweeping motion as you clean. This just doesn't manage to do that. Therefore to clean a relatively large driveway I had to keep changing from this attachment to the nozzles to direct the muddy water away to the drains and to actually see where I have cleaned.

SO in terms of time? I think it probably took as long to clean the drive as meticulously going over with the single jet working over each brick. Using this in effect adds more hassle/ fun depending on your viewpoint.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Value Steamer on the market, 26 Dec 2007
I have used several steamers over the years and this one is certainly the most impressive. It is powerful and has 4 settings for steaming different types of surface. The higher the setting the more power produced the 'wetter' the steam - ideal for jobs such as cleaning cane furniture, bathroom surfaces, tiles. The lightest setting with the driest steam is suitable for carpet cleaning and furniture freshening.

Unlike most steamers where refilling the tank requires pouring water from a jug into the tank via a funnel, this model has a detachable tank which is easy to refill and lasts an impressive 80 minutes.

The steam is produced instantly (most models take around 10 minutes to boil); akin to boiling water in a cappuccino maker as it passes into the filter, this model makes the same chugging sound whilst the 'gun' is depressed to fire the steam - which may well irritate those who are sensitive to such things

With the extra power of this model - 1700W (as opposed to most on the market at around 1400W) I found tasks were more quickly achieved with better results.

The only drawback is (like most steamers) your only provided with one floor cloth which is essential to clean floors/ carpets and you would probably need at least 4. BUT I found cutting up an old white towel did as adequate job (white as you need to see the amount of grime your blasting out - when no more shows, you know your finished).

For some reason Vax seem somewhat shy at marketing this product, it doesn't appear listed on their own website and did not find any reviews anywhere for it - which is somewhat strange given the fact this is undoubtedly the most powerful at easiest product to use in this price range. Maybe the concept of the 'traditional' Vax shampoo cleaner is threatened by rising popularity of steam cleaners and hence having made such a good model they realise they should keep it hushed up? But Seriously - this is the best steamer for this price, and will be suitable for most users.

4.0 out of 5 stars Smash!, 31 May 2006
Tammy Bruce takes a baseball bat to the so called liberal 'left elite' - and whallop! This is a good read. Whilst she conceeds that one cannot state the 'left elite' is a secret group conspiring together against society, she adds together the pieces which form it - ie gay rights, feminism, multiculturalists.. and describes their collective effect as the alien which burts out of the stomach of the guy in alien... feeding on their host (ie american society)and then killing it!

Highly entertaining book whith a chilling message.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mans guide to life:Read It, 11 Mar 2005
This review is from: The Manipulated Man (Paperback)
Whilst reading this book, experiences through my life came to the front of my mind (and there were many of them...)
The characterisation of the sexes is fairly spot on - whilst some may hail and denounce it's despcriptions as generalisations, the polemic towers as a overview of the entire race of men and women over many, many years; and by doing so hits a big unspoken nail on the head.
Its what most men have sensed and most women deny. Indeed it offers a new way to look at the world we live in, that is if you hadn't already wised up throught your own observation and thought.
In spite of Vilar's wrath and ice... Many women have warm hearts and many men are not so easily led... Ultimatly the book holds up a mirror to feminism and shatters the generalisation within the women's movement of: man bad, woman good; Man oppresor; woman oppressed.
