Just bought this vacuum, best purchase made this year and cheapest price after Quidco.
This is an excellent vacuum with VERY powerful suction. I tried it on full suction and it lifted the carpet off the floor! The flex is a very good length so I don't have to keep changing sockets. The only downside is it does seem rather heavy to lift but pulls around the floor easily. I am so pleased I chose this model. It is brilliant.
