Due to some people leaving my life, I became without the cleaning power of a vacuum. In a large flat with lots of comings and goings, it tends to get messy quickly. 2 weeks had passed since I last saw spotless floors and a happy flat. I finally found time in my busy schedule to make it to the cbd and purchased this brand spankin' new vacuum. After getting home and busting it out of the box like a kid on christmas morning I began to vacuum the floor, blown away by the power of its suctioning abilities. I went to bed a happy chappy that night, with a smile on my face. The next day, after finishing some errands, i begin to use the lil' beauty to clean more. But then I notice its suction abilities diminishing, so i decide to clean out the filter - although its only half full. On replacing the filter and turning the vacuum on again... only approx. 2 minutes and 23 seconds later the lil beast dies. RIP. I will be returning this product promptly.
Highly do not recommend. Spend the extra money and get one that works.
