Great cordless hoover


I bought this last week after spending a fair amount of time reviewing cordless hoover. I was on the verge of buying one of the cheaper ones but at the last minute decided to go for a Dyson V8. Although more expensive I have to say it is money well...

Best hoover


Have had many upright dyson hoovers over the years and was a little dubious about switching to a cordless model due to battery life and my thoughts on them. But wow what a misconception that was it's the best purchase I have made in years, it's made my...

Best vacuum I’ve ever bought


I bought this Dyson after my friends had all raved about it and I said how I was missing out. I'm so pleased I finally got one. This is brilliant. Easy to use and no tangly wires to move around furniture. It's great to just get out do a little tidy...
