The suction is pretty good for a cordless vacuum, it picks up dirt, dust and pet hair on my thick carpets without any problems. On hard floors it performs well by using the option to turn the motorised brush on or off I find I can pick up most things with ease.
Although It weighs 5.1 kg, (which is not much lighter than many corded vacuums) it glides over surfaces easily and by detaching the Cylinder, ( which only takes a couple of seconds) it reduces its weight to a manageable 3kg. Using the articulated brush I can turn my Vax into an efficient duster which sucks up dust and cobwebs all without using the boost feature, in fact the only time I have needed the boost was when I cleaned the car, although the suction is adequate for most things on the normal setting it struggles with small stones or grit that find there way into the foot wells, however the boost noticeably improves suction and they are quickly despatched.
At first I thought the front LED light was a bit gimmicky but it turns out to be very useful, illuminating dark areas well and showing me just how filthy the carpet was under my sons bed.
The only thing I don't use it on is the stairs, although an attachment is supplied I find it hard work compared to using my small hand held which has a motorised brush.
Another of the things I like about this Vacuum is that it comes with two detachable batteries so you always have one on standby. In a three bedroomed house I found I had enough time to clean the floors with one battery and the other enabled me to dust the house and clean the car.
I like the design of the Vax, it seems well made, compared to many other modern cleaners and is well thought out with all its features and maintenance tasks like Removing the cylinder or emptying the dust bin easily carried out in seconds, (no screwdriver required).
I have read a number of reviews where owners have had problems with the machine clogging or dirt getting trapped between the bin and the separator. I haven't had any problems with clogging so far but I have had dirt getting trapped and not falling to the bottom of the bin which if left to build up can clog the machine, however this is not really an issue you simply detach the bin then remove the separator from the top freeing the dirt the whole procedure only takes seconds to do and is explained in the manual.
Although this is really only a first impression its a good one, we tend to clean are carpets once a week with spot cleans as and when required, if the machine develops any serious faults, like the wheels falling off I will update this review accordingly but as it stands the Vax deserves a solid four stars.
The floors require more time to get cleaned. The suction looks to be OK once you lift it up, but using the upright seems to be taking much time and floor is not very clean. Therefore, I will change this to two stars noting that the filter is being cleaned as well as the floor brush.
In summary: The product does the job.
It would have been great if the reach was better, I do understand that the hose as per design is restricting it to go deep in flat position under tables and etc. but would have been nice if it can run almost flat on floor so if I want to run it under say a wider table you can just do it and it can go under the table for its maximum handle length and therefore, don't need to move it but this is not happening. This cannot happen as the hose at the back side will hit the floor.
Would have been also great if the wide brush accessory (for the handle when the up-lift is used) for floors is available either for sale separately or as part of the package due to reach point mentioned above you need this, and for ensuring maximum reach below beds! I contacted Vax and received an email stating that such a brush is not available for this model (Which surprised me and I feel I want to buy just any commercial one online).
It's suction is good, but I expected more, as you need to over the same area twice to get it "almost" 100% clean (Some might ask if I do clean the filter, yes I do clean filter regularly as per manufacturer recommendations).
Battery life: You need the two batteries, often battery needs replacement (as we have 2) / recharging. So I advise to go for the option with two batteries rather than one because eventually you will end up buying another battery!
Floor Brush: it is easy to remove, but not very easy to remove long hair around the cylinder itself. It's ok, but I didn't expect to get some there, but expected all to be sucked in the bin!
Overall, product is good, I like it, just do it without having the cables hassle and etc.. It is handy and does the job, but if you look for suction you may want something more powerful, if you are looking for good reach to areas under low beds, tables and etc, I think you need to buy a compatible wide floor brush.
If you want less hassle, quick cleaner, grab and clean tool this is is the one.
