  • Great features and practical- easy to use…
    Geyge (Argos.co.uk) - December 2014

  • Fact that way to extend tube is at bottom, near brush head not as easy to use…
    Marty63 (Argos.co.uk) - November 2014
  • The suction control keeps on moving back to the minimum suction which is very annoying and the head itself doesn't glide across the floor as easily as with the Brush Head on the old model…
  • My only criticism would perhaps be that the main cleaner head assembly brush isn't that easy to switch up…
  • The brush tool is brilliant for skirting boards, radiators, blinds etc…
  • Good -great suction -quieter than other vacuums -Good build quality Bad -vacuum head has rubber instead of brush type, which makes it hard to vacuum on carpets…
  • Very much like that the tools are now stowed on the handle rather than in a rear compartment as before; only very slight downside is the detail nozzle (which features a handy retractable brush) doesn't feel as sturdy as the old one…
  • Still gives good results, also shame the turbo brush is no longer available…
    Lady49 (Argos.co.uk) - January 2015
