Cheapest its ever been:

camel price check

I'm not keen on duel machines myself and there is a separate Vax carpet washer for £90 that gets good reviews. RRP is a joke but 6 years warranty would make it good for heavy users.

I had one of these and the hot water reservoir leaked. I sent 4-5 emails via Vax's website requesting support but they did not reply. In the end I had to epoxy the seals on the reservoir.:|

got the 125 version of this (same thing really) and its great, although a steam mop is quicker for hard floors than filling and emptying the resevoirs. this is good price for it though as its very good for cleaning carpets.

This is JUST a CARPET Shampooer, not a Vacuum or steam mop thing. The "dual" system here is the DUAL V system, the way it sucks the water up, it is not a dual "purpose" cleaner.

£199 in Argos, I bought a couple of years back, honestly the best thing I have ever bought for the home, paid a professional to clean my carpets for £120 and this thing did a far better job ! The brushes go round rather than a standard brushbar system, it really is excellent ! Have had to use the helpline at VAX once so far as I had a very long coated dog and the hairs must have blocked the water channel somewhere, 6 year warrenty was excellent, just make sure you register on-line when you get one and its just a phonecall away, had a brand new unit delivered within 3 days and they collected the old one, excellent service :-)

Well spotted OP, pity I've already bought one, voted hot though :-)

Also have this carpet cleaner - rate it very highly. Vax's own carpet cleaning solution (AAA) is good, but expensive. We usually buy a few when its reduced. Has been brilliant with a potty-training toddler in the house. The carpets are almost dry strainght after use - which is great.

Its a very good carpet cleaner ! - it actual works , use the Ultra plus liquid though if the carpet has not been cleaned for a while

Forgot to say, this is the detergent I use and it is awesome, plus lasts forever! You can dilute it at 1:100. So you can use a couple of capfuls +water in the detergent chamber. Works out at an absolute fraction of the cost of the Vax liquid.

Not being funny but did you try calling at all? They were brilliant when my old machine stopped working. They sent me a packaging bag, collected it then returned it as good as new two weeks later.

Also as said above, this is a dedicated carpet cleaner, not a dual unit. I'll wager the £90 model is like comparing rola cola to Coca cola.
