Please don't buy them! Knowing Currys, they might sell refurbished disguised as new. That price is not cheap any way!

Miele vacuums are not cheap. Most people would agree that we are paying extra for quality engineering. Even their recent economy range (C1 models) are rarely sold under £100.

I bought a Toshiba satellite 3D laptop and when it arrived, the box was full of holes. It's it had been sold and the box ws not new. But my son wanted to keep it because of the gimmicky 3D. That's my first time.

2nd time. A Bosch washing machine which came with no box at all. I was horrified, but as the machine would make my brand new fitted kitchen whole. I told myself that they would not do that and after that, there wa a leak and that made me distracted me quite a bit. It was freezing and we had to go to the street to switch off the water supply when it was -2c. . As i used it when E7 kicked in, I had no idea there was something wrong with the timer. The timer overran all the time apart from the 15 minutes' quick wash. Even a man called P Clarke admitted the machine was stripped of its boxes somewhere else. Why should a brand new machine be stripped somewhere else. After two engineers' two, they threatened to charge for call out. If they deliver something to your house, make sure they are in brand new carton box with no big holes or dents from the inside.

Can't comment on the laptop as my Toshiba was fine, if there's a sticker on the box it may be 'pre-setup' for Knowhow services. And with the washing machine it must be pure coincidence because in actual fact washing machines simply don't come in boxes anymore, there's sometimes a piece of wood with film around it but in most cases there is minimal outer packaging now, definitely no outer box.
The laptop turned out to be very good, but the battery is totally spent and I am actually using it now. Because it's 3D, the HD is actually far better than my son's Mac. But the laptop is defiinitely a return as the box was yellowed and there were holes in quite a few places. If you paid just below £900 to get a reject, how would you feel?

I bought from AO and the appliance came with a proper box and I would say to people to ask they they buy if the appliance comes with a proper box. There no no way to tell if the machine has been experimented on and then passed on to some customer at full price, such as those rejected by JL customers. Any way, after this machine, my confidence in Bosch and Currys is seriously damaged. Won't buy from Currys definitely.
