Good points:
I read all the reviews about the machine before I purchased and I have to say this machine is well worth the money. A full wash takes only 30 mins and saves on power, An A, power rating, the machine turns itself off once the cycle has finished, so no more nagging to the Wife that the machine has been left on all night. It has basic controls so no fancy programmes you will never use. This machine is so quiet when in use and the only noise is three bleeps to tell you the wash has finished. Fantastic value for money. I would highly recommend. Once the spin has finished clothes come out dry, but not creased. This has to be the best value machine on sale today.My old machine cost twice as much and this is far superior!
Bad points:
The only thing that I can say is the instructions could be made more clear when fitting the sound barrier material under the machine before use. I was going to throw the board out as I thought it was packaging. The board with matting cuts down all the noise from the motor and drum under the machine. I bet loads of people have thrown it away, not realising that it is an important part of the design.Also the three big bolts that secure the machine in transit are hard to remove, if like me, you can't find the right tools for the job. A handy spanner to fit would have been a great help, plus better instructions as to what has to be removed before use.

3 years and nearly 3000 washes for £159.99 is excellent value.
Bad points:
Only thing that we needed was to stop it mid-wash to add something.

Good points:
Ok built quality.
Bad points:
Bad design, it's so big you'd thing has got at least 6kg capacity but it's actually only 5kg.
The transport 3 bolts were a nightmare to unscrew before installation.
The delivery guys were useless, didn't know how to install it despite having paid for installation and now I am chasing Currys for a refund.

Do not buy this product. after just 13 months ( interestingly when the guarantee is only a year) the bearings are worn out and not worth replacing so i have to buy a completely new machine.

Just make sure it is installed correctly - if you are having it installed by Currys then double check pipes are all fitted as we had to recall the fitter back out.
