After replacing most of our carpets with laminate floors, we decided to buy a smaller hoover. This one (apparently) compared favourably with other models of a similar size and power. Big mistake: almost no suction, won't pick up even the smallest crumbs from the carpet, leaves hairs and other 'strands' (e,g. cotton threads) clumped on the edge of the brush. The money you think you've saved in buying a lower powered hoover will be wasted in the time taken to clean the carpet multiple times: i.e. three attempts to clean w. 700W = one pass with a 2000W.
Cleaning is almost certainly a health hazard: once you've removed the drum, you have to open it very carefully to avoid spilling the contents everywhere. You then have to remove two separate filters (don't even think about not cleaning them every time you empty the thing - even worse performance). Cleaning these filters and the dust clogged in the inside of the drum produces more dust than you picked up (I'm exaggerating for effect, but you get the picture) and this goes everywhere - you should definitely clean it outdoors, but be very careful not to inhale the minute dust particles that fly around on even the most windless day. Great for the environment too!
Shouldn't be allowed to sell such a poor piece of engineering!

Very poor quality fell apart and did not even have any suction. Would not recommend brought it back for a refund - got it half price but would not buy any Russell hobbs hoover again. Do not recommend it.
