Wow, that didn't take long...

I got a Hetty two years ago and she's the best I've ever used. I've had Hoover and Dyson in the past as well as cheaper models but Hetty is definately better than them. I would recommend Henry or Hetty to anyone, you won't be disappointed.

I've had many 'hoovers' in my time and this is definately the worst EVER! It gets tangled in the cable and when you pull it, it just falls over...total garbage, I'm just waiting for a decent deal on a Dyson or Miele and this smiley faced piece of crap is off to the skip!!

Code not working for me but hot anyway

Got one for £72.24 in October with a 15% off the £84.99 deal at the time.

These are excellent. very impressive hoover, weighs very little, amazing power and extremely quiet even on the high power mode. Genuinely shocked at how quiet it is.

Comes with the better A1 accessories kit too.

It was cheaper at the time at DIxons I think but it was the 1100W version (the old model) so bear that in mind if you see it elsewhere.

These are good if you have a small floor space with laminate flooring or such, but on carpet its very hard work - like sweeping a driveway of snow! And if you over 5 foot tall you'll get a sore back after a while..

just don't buy the Henry for an Irish friend/relative

Any other valid vouchers amibees? thx

Top vac, we have one and I wouldn't change it ever and probably won't have to.

Hehe, I cannot imagine what you're doing to it to make it fall over.You've got more chance of that happening on an upright than a low level 4 wheeled device.
As for the tangling problem you're having, I've not had an issue with that, it's cable, it will bend and twist as much as any other cable would. And it's far easier to wind it back in that having to loop the thing on an upright.
Each to their own, but If I were you I'd suggest just put it in the loft for a while and if you do prefer an upright then rather than take it to the tip, freecycle or freegle it. (google is your friend if you've not heard of that)

It's NOT a 'Hoover'!!!!!

Hot price, I bought the wife one as a xmas pressie ... she wanted a new vac for xmas so got her the pink Hetty. I got it a while ago and she's very very happy with it. Loves the hepa and that after a clean there's no dust settling which we had with our old upright.

Best part of getting it is that our 2 year old thinks its a toy, pushes it around, kisses and hugs it ... will point out all the features if asked, "where's it's eyes?" etc hehe ... and if you need it, just ask "where's Hetty?" and he'll go off and get it ... try doing that with any upright :-D

What swayed me to get it was all the positive reviews and some people having had theirs for 20+ years without probs. It's a well built, solid machine. Not only that, but it's built in the UK rather than in abroad. (I will never buy a Dyson, because I cannot justify the stupid prices even though its not made in the UK but rather with cheap labour in Malaysia.) To me Dyson is overated and having studied marketing I can understand why they have such a strong positioning with consumers. It may be very good, but it ain't the best ;-)

He's right. It's a 'Numatic International' (the company who make Henry)

Which recommend against the henry but then which are often terrible at reviewing stuff. I would agree they are awesome little vacuums.


Ex Dyson owner (2 models) . Very, very pleased with Henry. Voted hot.

If you get a Henry make sure you use the Numatic HEPA woven bags, they are so much better than the paper ones, hold more and never split. Only £5 for box of 10 at John Lewis.

No it's not a 'Hoover', but in common parlance it's quite acceptable to call it a hoover, also as in hoovering or to hoover-up

Yes as far as I'm aware, 'hoover' is now "a generic term for a vacuum cleaner, irrespective of brand".

Therefore, it IS a hoover.

We have a Dyson and a George. Dyson great for dust but if it comes across a pin or a paperclip it's game over. Henry / George great for everything inc builders rubble!

"...common parlance..." = ignorance.

I'm looking for a good deal on George. Anyone?

Using so many different make of hoover this is my verdict,very powerful, long cable, low maintain & very little thing go wrong ,the bad point is very easy tip over, slightly awkward to stored & not the best looking hoover, but you would not regret specially at this price.

I'm not too sure given Henry's dark secret.....
