Our Verdict:
This vacuum has excellent suction and it's really easy to use, and well designed. It's a breathtakingly cheap and top-rated 1.5L dust capacity, 5kg heavy vacuum, with a good spec.

Kagoo Score

Why Has it Scored 87?

It has great user reviews with 100% of buyers recommending this vacuum to others.
This vacuum cleaner is over 2 years old and it is likely that newer vacuum cleaners with better features are available. However it has good reviews so it may still be worth considering. View the latest vacuums 2019.
This VAX vacuum cleaner has some good features, but is also missing a couple of features:
Lighter than average
Carpet cleaning performance class rating of A
Clean carpets and hard floors powerfully with multi-cyclonic technology
Easy to carry up stairs and around the house with a light, compact design
Louder than average noise level
Very small capacity

What is the Kagoo Score?

We calculate the Kagoo Score for each vacuum cleaner by looking at its reviews, features, popularity, age, value for money and running costs.

The Kagoo Score is an easy way to understand whether the vacuum cleaner is recommended.

The Kagoo Scores are constantly being updated. As newer, higher spec vacuum cleaners come to market, the older vacuum cleaners will gradually have their Kagoo Score reduced.
