Delivery was super fast and free. It does the job very well, however, no-one has mentioned that after it dries (which takes an impressive 1 minute if that), in the light, you will see it leaves a clear streak mark so I will have to buy polish cloths to get that out. My wooden floors are high gloss but this leaves a matt finish but overall, I am happy with the results. Another thing I noticed was that after hoovering the place, although the cloth picks up as much dust as possible, not all is stuck to the cloth so brown wet dust gathers at the corners or edges of the area you've mopped. These are very small matters which doesn't bear an hindrance to how I feel about its excellent performance. I was going to purchase the H2O mop advertised on TV but after reading the reviews here, I thought best not especially as many reviewers complained that the H2O took 30 minutes to dry or left the floor extremely wet. This hometek mop has the area dry within ONE minute which I am extremely pleased about casuing less disruption all round. The cloth enclosed with the product with the abrasive surface was great on my vinyl floors which has grooves where dirt embeds itself. I scrubbed this area with the mop and on my first attempt, it took as much dirt as it could. I'm sure on my subsequent attempts I will get all hidden marks from my vinyl. I used the softer cloth on my wooden floor but additionally ordered the set of 3 soft cloths for each room in my home as I intend to use one cloth per room. I just used a full dose of my ionic water which was enough water for the bathroom and kitchen and another for the living room and large coridoor. This also comes with a free water softener which, after reading the instrucitons, had me slightly confused but that's another story...
Update May 2013: Still going strong after 3 years but I also bought separate pads for it that doesn't work but aside from that, this is a good buy!
