Did you actually read the studies behind the EU reg? I'm guessing not.

Consumers were buying higher and higher Wattage hoovers due to think they were better (and companies making less and less efficient hoovers simply for people to buy them), despite there being actually no noticeable or extremely negligible difference. It was good move from the EU.

The "big bad EU" werent just sat around one day and thinking hmm lets screw hoovers over. FFS why do people believe this?

Same same but different: Remember back in 2008-2010 when phone manufactures were all trying to outdo themselves on megapixels when actually there's a whole lot more to a phone camera then mp. Iphone for instance regularly beat competitors in camera reviews despite having 3 mp's back then. Its not about size, it's about what you can do with it.

We had a rubbish Miele as well but it was one of those titchy ones a bit like these newer ones - hardly surprising it was a bit rubbish on carpets

I'm a die hard Henry fan, but the Airo brush is actually quite bad, the bristles are so far apart from each other the chance of actually getting that sock fluff is low.

This guy has got 5 of the good 780W ones left, brand new. Now £146.65 may seem high, but there are occasional Ebay 25% discounts plus you get 1% @TCB. Makes the price £108.78.

Which would be better value than getting this £89.99 Henry from Argos.

Just sayin'

I agree, the new 650W Henrys aren't as good as the old 1300W. Mine has lasted 14 years so far with no problem.

C2 compact. Yes, it's powerful but without a spinning brush bar, it's atrocious on carpet. I literally have to pick fluff off the carpet that the vacuum just won't pick up (short pile carpet).
£99.00 on-line and in-store at Tesco.
Love these, need a new vacuum. May just give it a go, thanks op! Heat added

Miele are good but bags are microscopic and cost a fortune, and you need filters. Henry bags are collosal, £1 each and you don't need filters.

Because they read the Daily Express with its SENSATIONALIST headlines of how the rest of the world is RUINING our Britain.

Well, unless there's another more rational explanation. I think that's capitalised in the correct style, will soon find out if there's a bite or two.

It's similar things with speakers

I keep seeing people say "get a higher wattage for better sound, the low wattage ain't good"

That's not true though, Wattage on Speakers just means higher volume not better sound quality, not sure why you'll need it to be suoer high unless you want to get want noise complaints and your eardrums bursting

But the older vacuum with a higher watt is better and has more suction than the newer smaller vacuum with less watt... I have the older one with switch on the vacuum to add more power whereas the newer one which the mother purchased from Argos is smaller, less watt, and doesn't have that switch it just has a dial on the vacuum to lower/ higher the power. It's not the same but they have the same name! The speaker thing is different tbh

Generally speaking.... higher watt = better suction... There's obviously a lot more to it but I'd be looking more at a 1kw vacuum than a 500w. Suppose it's just the start of the 'finding something' process but it's all changed now. I tell the Mrs before she buys anything electrical Google top 10 or top 20 and if she cannot find it in a review don't buy it lol
Switched from my Henry (which I loved in fairness) to a Shark and honestly I'd never go back now. My Shark is in a different league. Lighter, more versatile, picks up better. Henry was awesome but there's a new winner in town. Had a dyson too and that'd be at number 3 in the list.

As for the EU regs, it needed to happen. Old vacuum motors were grossly inefficient, old Henry generated a tremendous amount of heat which is wasted energy. Watts isn't important. Try to look for air watts or air flow in litres/sec. Far more useful stats when picking your next vacuum.

Not necessarily, when a huge portion of those watts get used to generate heat instead of suction. The best and / or most expensive vacuums were already well under the wattage regulations. It's all about the air watts, as my post above. Even pro-brexit Mr James Dyson felt that the new regs didn't go far enough and the wattage limit should have been lower!
