STUART, TAUNTON Frequent user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Light and easy to carry and use. Very effective once you are familiar with the weight, "handle angle" for best performance and the feel of the action.
Bad points:
Perhaps too light! Suction not always satisfactory until you understand the feel of the machine.

Score 3.0/10
Good points:
Lightweight looks sleek
Bad points:
Need to keep the handle so low to stop the extra pick up pressure and overworking the motor. This makes pefromance erratic because you concentrate on the handle position.
Perhaps I was unlucky and have a faulty machine but discovered too late to return.
It would be handy to have a charged ready light.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
I bought this Gtech SW18 Germguard power sweeper for my elderly parents and I really love the machine and intend to buy one for myself., This sweeper has eased up so much of my time and helped me avoid bending down. This machine is easy to assemble with clear instructions and ready to use after an overnight charge.

The sweeper has lower noise than the vacuum cleaner which was my first plus point as my elderly mother refused to let me vacuum her house because she is now more sensitive to noise due to dementia.

The Gtech is surprisingly and deceptively light weight but beats the hell out of any upright vacuum in terms of results on the carpet pile. It leaves carpets like they have been professionally steam cleaned as the brushes on the sweeper lift the pile to show a freshly swept texture. Mums's carpets are over 20 years old and we have had professional machine cleans in the past but but the Gtech has surpassed this in terms of the final finished appearence.

On carpetted stairs the Gtech is a godsend. By removing the tall handle and visor you can really get into the grooves on the stairs with support from the charged motor it makes the chore a dream.

Using the Gtech on vynil and wooden laminated floors is just as as delightful. The sweeper has a great action to be able to slide in all directions making it easy to get into difficult corners. It easily drew in all the crumbs up against the skirting boards to the kitchen units. So no need to get a special vacuum nozzle.

Overall it's a fantastic machine we have all fallen in love with the cute Gtech SW18 Germguard power sweeper. It's made cleaning enjoyable and effortless especially if you have a disability . The Germguard is an added bonus if you need reassurance about hygiene.
Bad points:
It's hard to think about bad points at this time but I would like to know when the charge is running low. So a future model with a light indicator would top it off and I would not have to leave it permanently plugged in save one day a month where it is recommended you drain the battery of charge .
