Slim, lightweight and powerful. The U88-AM-Be Air3 225 air watt upright vacuum cleaner, gives you all the cleaning power of a conventional upright in a slim, lightweight design. Multi cyclonic technology gives you outstanding powerful suction too. It’s easy to manoeuvre thanks to the dual axis that allows you to twist and turn around your furniture with the flick of a wrist. Even though the body is slim, you still get a generous 2 litre dust container so you can vacuum for longer without constant emptying. Allergy sufferers will be relieved to know it’s got a HEPA Media filter that traps all dirt, dust and pollens inside. This model boasts Vax’s amazing 6 year guarantee too, so you’ve got complete peace of mind.
The vacuum cleaner has excellent suction....too much even!!! Because it has so much, the fact that you cannot raise or lower the height means it just sucks itself onto the hard floor/lino or dense pile carpet. This means you severely struggle to push it around on hard floors. If the height could have been adjusted, this would of allowed some of the suction to be reduced, thus reducing the effect. Shame. It's a great cleaner other than that.

Small compact and light just as described. Only reason for not giving 5 star is the handle, as it feels too low and I'm only 5ft 6.
Pros: brush spin on/off button, compact, great suction, lightweightCons: handle a bit low

Does what we bought it for
Excellent suction! Light and easy to carry. We got it for the upstairs bedrooms to save bringing the larger one up but we now take it downstairs and do everything!! However... it's not very big and I'm 6' and have to push it in a rather stooped manner. The cable doesn't really get far into other rooms and the dust compartment fills up very quickly. Sometimes the dust gets into the upper section (above a 'cone') and I have to rake it out with a bit of wire. We shouldn't be asking it to do more than it's capable of I suppose.

Great suction but very small hose
Cleans really well but both the hose and sure are shirt so makes stairs a pain. It would be fantastic if these were made longer. Disappointed as it makes that difficult job even more difficult

hard to use
this hoover is great on hard floors, but very hard to use on carpets cable is too short .also suction pipe too short when using with accessories.

Light and Powerful Vacuum
The Vax Air3 is a very light and easy to use vacuum, however on carpets it can be quite hard to push but this is due to the large suction which picks up lots of dust other vacuums may not. On hard floors the vacuum didn’t necessarily pick up everything, especially when the bristles aren’t rotating.
The ability to pivot the vacuum down means it’s very easy to get under furniture and into other hard to reach places.You get two tools with the vacuum including an upholstery and crevice/ brush tool which easily snap onto the hose. Whilst the vacuum comes with a large amount of cable (in excess of 3 - 4m) the hose is not very long and means it may be difficult to get to the top of a flight of stairs without bringing the entire vacuum with you. However, given the light weight of the vacuum, this isn’t too taxing.
The clear dust bucket means you can see when it needs emptying, and also the use of orange bristles with a clear covering for the main vacuum unit, means that it is easy to see when it needs cleaning to prevent future blockages.
Overall, it is a very powerful and light vacuum with a number of useful features, and suitable for use on both carpet, wood and tile floors.
Pros: Easy to Clean, Easy to Use, Enable/ Disable Rotating Bristles, Light, Long CableCons: Hard to Push (sometimes), Short Hose
