Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Good value. Wet and dry capability. Internal paper bag for dry only applications means that most of the fine dust is collected and not drawn through the vacuum and spread around the room, which is important for diy around the house.
Bad points:
Flexible hose isn't very flexible, so you can end up fighting with it. The hose could do with being a little longer too. The accessories include extension pieces, crevice tool and a floor tool. However a small brush would have been useful, which isn't included. The internal paper bags are not reusable, so could prove inconvenient if you run out of them during a job. Only one is included with the vacuum, but they're readily available from vaccuum accessory sellers. If a reusable internal bag were available I would get one, but I can't see one for this model on the Karcher accessories web page.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
What ever you throw at it, it just keeps performing unlike domestic vacuum cleaner that died within minutes of vacuuming up the same DIY material. Even with the single bad point I would recommend this vacuum cleaner without hesitation.
Bad points:
Hose is poor quality and has a tendency to crimp if not moderately careful.

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
powerful motor and good suction for small bits, dust bag works well to keep dust in (like a sanded filer dust and similar) so you don't have to clean out your filter
Bad points:
very loud, extracted air goes same direction as your hose so air blows directly on the person who does vacuuming, is pretty heavy (if you want to move it from place to place) the hose has a small throttle where the handle is- so sometimes gets blocked there instead on the end of the telescopic tube

Score 2.0/10
Good points:
lightweight
Bad points:
i had two machines, the first was leaking (on the wet cycle) on the first use of it, and the motor wasn't running properly with smoke coming out of the blower! The 2nd machine worked fine for the first couple of occassions (only used on wet cycle) then on the third time of use it leaked all over the floor, stopped sucking out any water and when i took the lid off there was at the most 2 cups of water in the bottom, when it is supposed to hold 8litres!!. Hence i took this machine back, got a refund and won't be buying another! I can't comment about the performance on the dry cycle as i only used on the wet cycle.
