    Affordable with great suction!

    This vacuum cleaner is extremely affordable in comparison to others on the market. It has a great suction and picked up every bit of dust/dirt on all surfaces (and with a 2 year old, that's a lot of dirt!). I also found it to be fairly lightweight in comparison to other similar vacuum cleaners. My husband was unsure on the bright colour as it certainly doesn't fade into the background but I rather liked the blue! I did find that on hard surfaces, such as wood or tiles, it was rather loud! My daughter ran as fast as she could in the opposite direction whenever I turned it on (which isn't necessarily a bad thing!)

    Smart looking, light and does the job

    I've not owned an upright vacuum cleaner before so it was rather interesting to see how their main adversary fairs. The Vax mach air energise is very similar to other uprights on the market, and being bagless reminded me of one we have all come to know very well, so I was interested to see how it would compare. In that regard I would say it faired very well and what I like about it is that it is lightweight, very easy to manoeuvre (gets into corners well) and maintains a consistent and good level of suction. The latter is the fundamental reason for purchasing a vacuum cleaner so full marks here. It remains to be seen if the level of suction does maintain itself in the future however. That said, I think the overall weight of the machine means that the suction however is not exceptional, but that is also probably reflected by the price and bearing in mind this is a domestic product. Ergonomically it is perfectly suited to anyone as the handle height can be adjusted to suit which was a nice feature. I've not owned a bagless vacuum cleaner before either and I have to say it was effortless to remove the dirt and replace the empty container. I only did this to try as it had not yet reached capacity however. The cable is a decent length and you get an accessory in the form of a crevice tool which is very handy for in-between spaces like around the sides of bins. Additionally it may not be important but I would say it really looks the part too with simple colours mainly black with a nice blue trim. In terms of negatives I would say, and it might be because I am not used to upright cleaners, but the hose felt rather short so it meant picking the machine up more to get to hard to reach heights and spaces which my previous machine could easily do. I have not needed to clean it yet but having looked at how to do this it appears it will be easy when the time comes. If you often buy bagless uprights then you will be more than happy with this cleaner, however if you are ingrained to canister types you may feel limited by not having a hose permanently at your disposal for all those nooks and crannies in hard to reach places.

    Easy to use , efficient hoover

    Unpacking: opened the box and the main part of the hoover is built all I had to do is attach the handle and plug in and I was ready to go in less than 5 minutes. Instructions are easy to read but this hoover is quite straight forwards. Ease of use: so I started on the carpet with the hoover , there is a slide switch at the front to change from hard floor , to deep pile carpet which is easy to move and quick and accsessable on the front. It seems to have a deep suction and firmly pulls dirt from the carpet. You can see in the cylinder how much is collected (which always amazes me as I hoover regularly and there is still a lot!) Really impressed with the suction. The hoover feels fairly light weight although still may feel heavy to users with wrist problems or the like. It glides well across the carpet. Hard floor , it did an ok job on hard floor but I preferred using the hose and attachments on the hard floor as I felt overall I got a cleaner result. Hose attachment- handle clips off and attaches to the hose -- bit sceptical when I saw this , having to connect to the handle , but once I'd done it a couple of times it makes clear sense and is an excellent use of space! Everything clips on and off easily, is smooth and well built. Emptying the filter - hate this bit!! But as far as hoovers go it was easy to empty. Clicked the button released into bin. It didn't all come out so I had to dismantle it all , which is easy and empty it that way. It only took a few minutes but was a bit fiddly. Pros- easy to set up Good suction Good instructions Easy to see when it needs emptying Long power cord Plugged in so never runs out of charge 2 in 1 tool easy to attach Fairy small Not too noisey Cons Emptying dirt container a bit fiddly Would of been useful to have a small brush included as they recommend to use it to clean it Corded - so have to keep unplugging around house Overall this is a good value hoover. For the price I think that it is a sturdy , reliable hoover and I would recommend it to friends

    Excellent Vax Mach Air Energise UCA3GEV1 Bagless Upright Vacuum Cleaner

    Quick and easy to assemble with numerous attachments for various jobs, used as a standard upright hoover, it has an excellent suction, particularly with pet hair, where other vacuum cleaners have struggled. It holds a lot of waste before requiring emptying which allows me to vacuum the entire house and more before having to stop to empty. The cable is quite short which means that I had to keep unplugging and moving the power source, however, this a minor difficulty and the cleaner as a whole makes up for this by is excellent suction.

    Powerful Vacuum - Super Clean

    The Vax MachAir Energise is an excellent vacuum, simple and easy to use even my 5 year old can explain all the functions and empty with ease! It is super powerful you can really feel and see it pick up dust and dirt leaving floors and carpets looking great. It has a choice of setting for the type of floor and also 2 accessory choices one for pets to pick up the fluff and the other for edges and other hard to reach areas. It also features a Hepa air filter which should hopefully help remove allergens in normal day to day vacuuming. It has a good length cable and hook to hold cable out of way when vacuuming. Really easy to empty with quick release button and simple button to empty. Also lightweight for manoeuvring around the home. Looks great in the blue and black design and feels robust for day to day use. All round this is a good value and quality vacuum, and achieves great cleaning results all round the home.

    Efficient cleaner

    This is my second vax cleaner and I chose this one as I liked the first one which was a slightly different model. It does a good job on hard floor and carpet, and it's easy to convert it to use the tools.
