Noisy? Your having a laugh! ALL hoovers are noisy!

Some are noisier than others. Which magazine gives this one 2 stars for noise. They get worse after a while too.

Yeah, a bit, like any other - just as well we don't live in Japanese paper houses then, or it would be a problem.

Try one out with you neighbour there - on a freshly previously vacuumed carpet and prepare to be embarrassed! You won't notice the noise then :whistling:

Which reports don't impress me much, it is how well it picks muck and dog hair from the carpet in a real house for moderate cost and reasonably long life that impresses me.

Well the Which report is generally good for this vacuum, but it IS noiser than average.

I have a Miele which gets 4 stars for noise and is just as good a cleaner imo. Every Miele Which has tested gets a Best Buy rating.

Which Which Which Which.
What is this obsession with Which reports? :-(
More people read the Watch Tower than read Which, so does that mean we should all start knocking on doors selling extra-cranky religions?

I remember years back, my ex-wife's father bought a Computer on the basis of a Which report...it was a BBC, and I think the second choice was the Acorn Electron! Blinding advice that was! Built like a tank, but less use than a chocolate fire-guard both then, and subsequently!

I read Which for 20 years as there was a subscription at work, well, I read it when I could be bothered. I certainly wouldn't pay for it! I have never been impressed, and can't ever remember being significantly swayed after reading any report, usually because the reports were obsolete before they were printed as the models were totally different by then! Prices used in the comparisons are nothing like real-life pricing, and the tests used are arbitrary at best.

Miele IS a good brand. An expensive brand though, and that is even when compared with the undoubted expense that a Dyson is. In the case of Miele vacuum cleaners it requires bags which add further to expense, and yes, is reputed to be quiet. As I don't usually vacuum at 3am, and in any case don't live in a converted flat with nothing more than thin floorboards between neighbours, a bit of variation in noise levels is of no consequence to me, but hunting out vacuum cleaner bags is, as is initial outlay.

I suppose if I didn't have a Dyson DC14, Miele WOULD be well up the list to choose from, but to be honest, the flexibility of the Dyson would be hard to pass over, (it meant I gave away the cylinder cleaner I had for some jobs like stairs) and it is more than 4 years old now, with zero problems & a lot of heavy use from having 2 dogs.
