Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant! Great little machine!Submitted as part of the selected review panel: Bosch asked me to test this vacuum, and I'm really glad they did. It's really light weight, yet very powerful, and very quiet....... it's the only vacuum that I have ever used that does not scare my pets! The battery seems to last for ages, and never runs out of charge during use. Very easy to empty the waste bin, and I'm amazed how much dirt it picks up from my very clean house. Would highly recommend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Submitted as part of a selected review panel.My initial repsonse when I unpacked it was WOW! The bright red colour was much better than the normal dull colours vacuums usually are. Assembly was very quick, it just clipped together than I left it to charge, very bright blue lights let you know when it is ready to go. I have a new hard floor in the hallway which was scratched by my large upright vaccum, this is brilliant on hard surfaces, I put it on 2 and it simply whizzes around without any issues. I also use it on a large dirt trapper rug and it copes very well with that. On my longer new wool pile carpet I engage turbo and again it sucks up dirt and pet hair with no issues. Emptying it is very easy, simply lift out the canister and tip into the bin, it picks up even the finest dust, I have found it very easy to use as a floor vacuum and light to carry around. When not in use it stands quite happily and looks very smart, it currently lives in the living room on standby, we have two collies, a hairy cat and two visiting grand children so it is kept busy! The battery charge status light is useful, but it keeps very good suction and I have always finished using it before it runs out. The only negative part has been the attachments, I have found it very difficult to use with the tools and hose, I am very short so much taller husband also tried and found it hard to use. I also found that I couldn't get to the on and off switch when using as a hand held and getting the brush head off the fit the hose was also an issue as it was quite hard to grip and pull. I have also found storing the hose and attachments tricky, a storage bag would be useful as an extra.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great cleanerI was asked by Bosch to test this cleaner & really like it in fact its one if the best i have used in a long There are two things that I think would make it even better in my opinion are a folding handle to make it easier to store & 2 I would like a handheld built into it apart from that its a excellent vac

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Vaccum - especially for elderly and disabledReviewed as part of home panel - Fantastically easy to set up, really lightweight and especially easy to manoeuvre as a disabled person. Lightweight enough to carry to the car and small enough but yet large enough capacity to clean the whole car. Battery lifetime great lasts for the whole clean of a semi-detached house. Cleans Lino easily as well as great variable suction in carpets - all round a great vaccum

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fab machine although few faultsHad vacuum 8 months now and having to call engineer out as battery not holding charge, and will only go onto suction 1 and 2 not turbo. However it is so easy to use, lightweight. I would recommend for all rooms in house, only give 8/10 for stairs.
