I bought one of these and it's terrible.

Works well at first but the filters bung up really quickly killing performance. Also the turbo brush broke within two weeks.

The most annoying thing is the main rotary brush jams incredibly easily. When it jams it burns through the rubber belt in about 5 seconds snapping it in two. There's no time between realising it's jammed and switching it off. We've gone through 6 belts in as many months. When I was hoovering the other night I managed to burn though 2 by accidentally vacuuming a smal piece of string which jammed the brush.

It's also big and heavy and has virtually no side suction, so getting the bits near your walls clean requires the hand tools. The hose for this is ridiculously short and it's very hard to use efectively.

I bought one of these off of ebay, and just to balance the opinion, I think it's great. I had a Dyson, but this is way better. Only cost me £40 on ebay though.
thanks for the comments. I will add that
a) for me it's brill. great suction
b) i agree that the hose is too short
c) it's rather loud
d) the turbo fixing is an excellent addition - great for cleaning the car, almost sounds like a plane taking off when you stick it on)
e) my carpet was vaccuumed using my old cleaner, then i used the vax - i must have been living in a filth pit for what the vax picked up

great value
