RELIABLE

Good Build Quality
johnlewis.com
Excellent Build Quality
Argos.co.uk
the 'Stretch' description is well justified as the extension hose (which clips to the built in hose) allowed our stairs to be cleaned without moving the vacuum
Amazon

NOT RELIABLE

The 6 year guarantee from vax is a fantastic addition too (even if we have had to claim under it in the first week) unfortunately the reliability of the machine has been called into question
Amazon
it is broken already
amazon.co.uk
two very small plastic bits broke off inside meaning that the tube would not stay in at all
johnlewis.com
The only problem was the lower clip broke
