Top critical review

It's been exactly two years since I bought this item...and this weekend it packed up! No steam comes out now unless you use the booster, which is NOT useful. There are definitely better irons out there and my task today is to track one down. NOT HAPPY.
Tricky thing to review, an iron! If they don't flatten the clothes, they're rubbish and if they do - then what's the problem?
This iron I can't decide how much I like. It works - don't get me wrong - but there are little niggles that stop me from being wholly content.
Firstly - it's heavy. Secondly - it occasionally sticks a little, which my last one never did. Thirdly - it's noisy! The noise of the steam escaping when you have it upright actually becomes irritating! Finally - the button to control the steam flow is a bit loose and it's tricky to see which setting it's on, so you have to flick it up and down to check.
It does what it's designed to, and and I have no complaints on that score, but I think improvements could be made in the 'glideyness' of the plate and perhaps in the amount of steam it loses when at rest.
