Mark, Stratford Upon Avon

Score 1.0/10
Good points:
It powers up when switched on.
Bad points:
It clogs up and parts of it are almost impossible to clean. Wet carpet pile is lifted and clings to the brushes; and when it is stopped the brushes each leave a line of dirt on the carpet you've just cleaned - a concentrated black line that the cleaner itself can't clean. Overall the product is poor.

Jane , Nottinghamshire

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Works exactly as described and does a very good job - The machine works better than I expected, the carpet is hardly wet when finished.
Bad points:
A little bit heavy to move around when fully loaded with water, but you soon get used to it and I would recommend you do not move this machine as fast around the floor as a standard vacuum machine as it would not do such a good job.

Julie, Broadstairs Full time mum.

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Very easy to use, it works well on stains. The amount of water it holds is great. It is very easy to get rid of the dirty water, unlike the old round vax's that you had to unlock the lid and then pick it up to get rid of the dirty water, this one you just unclip the dirty water tank and empty it a lot easier to do.
Bad points:
None that I have found.

Julie, Eastbourne Mature lady

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
After unpacking the VAX, it was very easy to put together, I did have one bolt that lost its' thread though and wouldn't connect to the screw it was supposed to.
Apart from that it has been very easy to use, I like the fact that I can vertually leave it ready for use - just fill the tank with warm water and then it is ready to go!!!
Also very easy to clean afterwards.
Bad points:
The water spray on the attachments for the upholstery is a little too wide, but that might just be for my furniture - I was using it on the arm of the sofa at the time.
