Style: Stretch Base Upright Vacuum Verified Purchase
The vacuuming function itself is very powerful and I was extremely impressed at how much dirt it lifted, however the whole thing is such a faff. Every time you want to do an edge or just quickly suck up that cobweb in the corner, think again. Poor design means that to use the hose you have to un-attach one part, attach another part, pull the handle out etc . . . it's an absolute nuisance and not in the slightest bit practical. It also claims to reach the entire stairway so you don't have to carry it up and down, it falls just a little short of being able to reach without pulling the machine over. Winning points it is very powerful, easy to empty, doesn't need bags and is very lightweight. The adjustable handle height is a fab idea, as a taller than average person I found this great, shame it doesn't help my back due to the constant bending of attaching the stupid hose! This could have very easily been a complete winner if a little more thought had gone in to the design!

Style: Stretch Base Upright Vacuum Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Vax is arguably one the market leaders in the carpet cleaning area but the vacuum market is dominated by Dyson. This offering from Vax comes-in at the lower-end of the market & is roughly the same size & spec as the Dyson DC25

I already own an earlier model called the Air Pet which I don’t particularly like so it was interesting comparing this to that.

Putting it together was simple enough although I did have to figure out where to put the tools on the back.

This vac is quite small; the same size as the DC25 and very light. Light enough that you can carry it around with one hand.
The power rating isn’t mentioned in the spec but is largely irrelevant as I think the suction on this thing is hectic.

Accessories
The upholstery tool rather small but seems to work ok
Crevice tool has a switchblade brush which makes it quite wide so would be unsuitable for getting in between things.. like crevices!
You also get an extension pipe for extra reach.. more on that later.
The Air Pet came with a turbo-tool attachment for removing pet hair from upholstery; this one doesn’t.

In Use
This does not have the trick ‘ball’ hinge that the other models have which means it’s not as nice manoeuvring around.

Unlike previous models, there is a switch that actually reduces the suction on carpets. This avoids the heavy drag you used to get on the older model.

There is also a switch to stop the brush from rotating for hard floors.
The vacuum suction is very good indeed. I feel that it is better than my old Dyson.

In order to use the tools you have to physically disconnect the hose from the base of the vac, attach it to the telescopic tube (which also acts as the handle).

Style: Stretch Base Upright Vacuum Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Must admit we were committed and happy Dyson fans until we tested this Vax. The Vax had however been a revelation. Lightweight and with exceptional suction power, the cłever design of the Vax means it takes up the least possible storage space whilst still maintaining cleaning power that, at face value, seems to better our 4 year old Dyson. And our Dyson is well maintained with clean filters etc. So no excuses there for the Duson.

There is little assembly required and first impressions are just how lightweight the Vax is. Much easier to carry if you have to.

A cleverly designed '3in 1' cleaning tool ( see photo) clips easily to the main body that also acts as home for the extension hose. All thoughtfully designed and easy to use.

Separate control for the brush bar allows deactivation for hard floors and tools and permanent washable filters are easily accessed. The handle can be adjusted for height and can also with minimal effort be lowered for storage,

The Vax is easy to a manoeuvre and, as the attached photos show, the design of the leaning head allows it to reach underneath furniture, a task that defeated our Dyson with its taller brush bar. The Vax's canister is smaller than the Dysons and will need emptying more often but that is a small issue.

An exceptionally long cord (13m!) allows the Vax to carry on working without frequent unplugging/ replugging to power sockets and the 'Stretch' description is we'll justified as the extension hose (which easily clips to the built in hose) allowed our stairs to be cleaned without moving the vacuum, a first for us and very welcome.

Style: Stretch Base Upright Vacuum Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
FOR ME, this is a 3-star vacuum cleaner because of two important (to me) things:

1. I find it obnoxiously loud ' what a racquet.
2. It's bad on lino flooring ' the suction is actually TOO powerful, such it "sticks" to the floor. Maybe if I had carpets I would love it? (All the suction is concentrated into a tiny little rectangular strip such that it forms a tight seal around the edges.. ) (You can’t markedly reduce the suction strength.)

Because of the above two factors, I'm just going to jump in and nitpick about some other things:
- It's clunky
- It clatters
- It's heavy.

Miele is just head and shoulders above the competition (including Vax).

For this sort of money (it's selling for around £226 on this page as I write this), I don't know why you wouldn't just get a Miele instead.

I wanted to like this - sorry- the Germans do it better.

One positive thing I can say about it is that the design is visually interesting. But the components kind of look intricate and breakable? Oh, ABOUT THAT: Which? magazine gave this a best buy in March 2015 (misprint on box says it's April 2015) says this "Vax's uprights have an appalling one-star reliability rating according to our annual survey of Which? members." Which? rationalises this by saying it has a lengthy six year manufacturer's warranty. While that may be so, do you really want to go through the hassle of repairs?
