Margaret, Mansfield. Notts Retired

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Looks good
Big capacity
Energy efficient
Bad points:
On my dryer, the water dispenser is very low and as you get older it is difficult to get down to remove for emptying.

The drying times do not coincide with the wording. i.e. bone dry does not come out dry.

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Good price dryer with big capacity which dries things really quickly
Bad points:
None, my old hoover was fiddly emptying the filter at the bottom of the machine (not the one in the door), haven't had to do that yet with this one but it is great so far.

Confirmed purchaser

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
It was a fantastic buy for the size, brand and efficiency rating.
Bad points:
The condenser reservoir is behind the kick plate on the base of the dryer. This means that you are grovelling around at floor level to empty it every other time it is used. Ideally it would be situated above the door for ease of access and would mean that you are not pulling bits off.
