      • "does not clean properly"

      In a nutshell:  Clocks up at least once every month (if one uses it on regular basis).  Suction-power is very low for 1500W input-power and becomes lower during use.  Needs to be emptied already when the dirt-container is only half as full as the maximum-mark suggests.  Extremely loud.  Badly and cheaply designed. It does not suggest a long life-line.  Quite heavy, quite big.  Resume: It does not do what it supposed to do ? to clean. ----------------------------------- When I bought this vacuum-cleaner and used it the first time, I found, that the suction-power is rather very low for 1500W input-power AND extremely loud. After approximately 2 weeks the suction-power was even lower. I quickly realised, that this vacuum-cleaner does not keep its promise: It supposed to clean WITHOUT suction-loss - as a ?cyclone?-vacuum-cleaner. It didn?t stop there! One must not vacuum-DIY-dust with it! It immediately clocks up the filter, which costs at least 30minutes to clean it properly. Further don?t try to pick up with it anything bigger than a pea!! It WILL clock up the suction-pipe-angle next to the dirt-accumulation-container. To clean that, one needs to take out the dirt-accumulation-container, turn the vacuum-cleaner up-side down and spill all the dirt inside on the floor ? that is the only way to do it. Otherwise ones risks, that remaining dirt inside the vacuum-cleaner goes into the motor. You can imagine what would happen next if one doesn?t do that way ? another 10min.! If you have allergic-problems ? forget - it! - unless you want to risk to breath in all that fine dust. After all this happened I went back to the shop from where I bought it. I got rude comments and was asked, whether I am a ?vacuum-cleaner? expert? Well, indeed I am design-student and can say with expertise, that this vacuum-cleaner is extremely an extremely faulty design . It shouldn?t have been allowed to bring this vacuum-cleaner on sale. It certainly has not been tested properly by Sanyo ? or do we have to assume, that Sanyo brought it on sale knowingly as it was?? Then I was told, that they will test it, but I will get a result in EARLIEST 2weeks. How am I supposed to clean my flat and do D.I.Y. during that time? So I had the choice, not to clean at all, to buy a 2nd vacuum-cleaner or to borrow one. I still have that vacuum-cleaner and now I am in contact with the Trading Standards Department. This vacuum-cleaner is at the edge of being criminal, because it does not do what it supposed to do ? to clean.

        • Ineffective

        I bought this machine yesterday and took it back today! I hated it - it was extremely heavy and VERY noisy. I have had a Henry cleaner for the last 5 years, which was extremely good but needed replacing. I saw this machine, read all the blurb about it and decided it was for me. After unpacking the machine from the box, I put it altogether. I started by cleaning my lounge carpet and was disappointed to note that it didn't pick up the loose bits of cotton that were on the floor. I then decided to take it upstairs to clean the bedrooms - mistake! The machine was really heavy - also when in use it was very noisy - it sounded like an industrial cleaner. I also found it difficult to remove the floor head if I wanted to insert the crevice tool - I just couldn't remove it - had to get my son to do it. I found this very inconvenient as I always use the crevice tool for the skirting boards etc., if my son hadn't been at home I would have been stuck! All in all I was very disappointed - the only thing in this machine's favour was that it was bagless but that's all. Have now bought a Miele cleaner and am thrilled with it - it was more expensive but well worth the money.
