What our reviewer said:

With cream carpets, two muddy grandchildren and even muddier dog I wasn't expecting great things from one of the smaller cleaners, but I have to say I was really impressed by the Vax Air Cordless Switch. It only gives a 15 minute run time, which doesn't seem like a lot but you can get quite a lot done in that time. Mine however was used for a quick whip round in the public areas of our house (living room, kitchen floor) usually when I was expecting guests or if there'd been an accident.

The fact it was cordless is always going to be a bonus for me, and the lights in the head unit are a innovative feature. I did find the three part emptying a bit annoying - removing the handheld, removing the dust collector, removing the filter. The crevice tool allows you to get into smaller spaces with the handheld but a brush tool would also be a useful addition. I also found the 10 hour charge for a 15 minute run a little excessive meaning that to use it daily it would pretty much need to be on charge all night.
