Rated 5 out of 5 by mickthespotter Best value cleaner EVER.
Brought this on the advise of our daughter (she has similar model). As stated the best value vac cleaner we have EVER brought.
The first time we used it we sucked up about half a dog! The floors had been cleaned by our old cleaner the day before, but you would never believe it. It really cleanes deep down and keeps on doing so.
The only small negative point is that on deep pile carpets it is a bit hard to push, that is because of so much suction. But better that than not enough!
Not sure how it will stand up build wise but hey at the offer price you can buy one every year for ten years and still be cheaper than a Dyson!!

Rated 4 out of 5 Good quality buy
Having previously bought a more expensive Samsung vacuum cleaner that broke after a few months and didnt ever really pick up dust and dirt effectvely, I was pleasantly surprised by this vacuum cleaner.
I read reviews online and am happy to say they are all correct. The suction is really strong and it is small and compact enough to store in a flat with very little storage. I am really happy with this product and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this to anyone looking for a lightweight, compact, good value vacuum cleaner.

This Genie Express Vac is Fantastic I hoovered with my old vac then used this one and it picked up so much it cleans deep down.
It is so light and easy to put together and simple to clean out. IT brings up the carpets lovely and good on wooden flooring. I would say it was better than my old dyson or any hoover I have had . I am going to tell everyone about this vac as it is excellent. My Grandma would love this as it is so light. So cheap and so good go on treat yourself you will not regreat it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Florist276 Not pleased
Bought this vac after reading all the excellent reviews, I had purchased a Bissell easy vac from asda's some time ago, apart from the fact that it is a bit awkward to clean the filter and the attachments are not very powerful, there is nothing wrong with it, but after reading the excellent reviews on the genie vac ,decided to try one, but must say I am very disappointed,after only using about 4 times,it was not as good as I expected, now tonight, after my dearly beloved said he would do the vacuuming for me it packed up working. I did accuse home of sabotage but he assures me this is not so. So I'm afraid it's back to asda for a refund. Sorry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Butakun Fantastic value for money.
I bought the Genie as a present for my parents as they are now in their later eighties and their monster Dyson has become too heavy for them to safely lug up and down stairs.
It is almost ideal for them, and a very good piece of kit. It is both small and light, easy to move and store.
The cleaning power is phenomenal and this is a slight issue as the super-powerful suction makes it difficult for my very weak Mum to push. A high/low power switch would address this issue.
A washable filter would also be an improvement.
These are really nit-picking issues, though. This vacuum cleaner is not a Dyson, but is compact, powerful and fantastic value for money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by GuapaLea Perfect Little Hoover
I've been using a stupid little pull along hoover for months and cursed every time I had to use it. So, in the end I decided to get myself a decent upright! After browsing the site I plumped for this one as it looked and sounded ideal. I only have a one bed flat so didn't want a huge expensive model. Well, I am certainly not disappointed. It may be small but boy does it have some suction!!!! I hoovered my lounge and was disturbed at how much it picked up that my old hoover had not touched. I would reccomend this little hoover without hesitation. It's light and small enough to hide away in a corner. My only slight criticism is that the cylinder is on the small side. But, for the money I paid, I am not going to grumble aout that.

Rated 4 out of 5 by KerryT OK (on a budget)
I bought this vacuum as I'd just got my first house and was on a budget what can I say it does exactly what you expect it to do! Its lightweight and easy to store and its not big and bulky, doesn't look cheap either. The only downside is that the suction isn't very good to say its a 1400 it doesn't seem like it and if you have pets it's not really that good as you will find around the filter it gets clogged very easy with hair (you will find you are emptying it more). Other than that if you on a budget or just fancy a second vacuum around the house this is a sensible option you wont find one as good for the price!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Medion Fantastic little machine
I own a regular well known brand Vacuum which is very good but on the heavy side. I purchased the Genie to leave upstairs as it is so light but what a super little upright this is.
I note that some reviews say the hose isn't long enough but I don't have a problem and as for the cord also not being very long, I justuse a single extension lead and can now use it over all of the upstairs and downstairs too.
It's really powerful and altho doesn't have large cylinder it's easy to empty. Easy to store and all in all highly recommended

Rated 5 out of 5 by MrsKA WOW
I bought this Hoover on the strength of the other reviews. My Dyson didn't seem to be doing it's job and was looking for a replacement. I was worried by the low cost but decided to give it a go and I'm so glad I did ! Its so light it's almost like a child's toy but it's suction seems very powerful.
I had hoovered my kitchen rug last night and have been out all so unless the dust/cat hair/dirt fairys have been in I should not of wasted my time because the Genie has just lifted so much of muck from the rug I'm ashamed ! Would highly recommend.

Rated 3 out of 5 by MrJC Excellent value, easy to assemble but basic model
I was initially a bit disappointed when I opened the box as the hoover was much smaller than I'd expected. I joked with my partner that it looked like a toy hoover. It is very easy to assemble although the workmanship isn't that impressive. The screw to secure the handle was too short. However, securing the dirt bin in place did hold the handle in place. On testing the hoover I found that it was more powerful than it looked...and noisy! It is great value for money if you need a cheap lightweight hoover with a decent suction although in hindsight I wish I'd went for a more expensive model. You get what you pay for after all...

Rated 4 out of 5 by thebucksfizzer This sucks, in a good way!
Initially I had my reservations due to the low cost of this vacuum. However after reading numerous positive reviews I decided to give it a go and boy am I glad I did. This is a lightweight and compact cleaner. It works wonders on my carpets and is excellent at getting up dog hair. The only negative I have experienced so far (and the reason why I have not given it 5 stars) is that due to the compact nature of the cleaner it fills quickly and therefore needs frequent emptying to maintain the suction. However, that said this is still a great value for money cleaner that gets the job done!

We have had expensive vacs in the past - Dyson, Oreck but this beats them all hands down!! Light but Powerful but picks up dog hair leaving carpet really clean. ok the dirt canister is small and needs emptying more often than the bigger machines but that's expected as it is a compact unit, yet has basic onboard tools too so its versatile
Dont lash out on pricey vacs - get one of these! Would recommend to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by smc1960 extremely good value
We purchased this Product based on the low price as we tend to replace vacuum cleaners on a far too regular basis.This cleaner is remarkably light which helps in use but especially when carrying up stairs.The suction is excellent and the carpets are noticeably cleaner after using this vacuum.The lead isn't the longest we've had but perfectly acceptable without the need to be constantly looking for the next electrical socket to plug it into.In short,it's extremely good value for money,one we would recommend and definitely one we would purchase again in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chooser Why pay more?
We have had some cleaners in recent years from very well known makes (can't be mentioned but you can guess) and we are not stupid enough to pay for a certain "prestige" make which one sees at the tip regularly. So when we decided to get a new cleaner as the present "lightweight" is showing signs of playing up, we chose to try the Genie because at this price one can't really go wrong. What a surprise - it most definitely does a more thorough job than the allegedly more powerful existing machine and is even lighter in weight than the said cleaner. It is better designed too, you will not be disappointed if you buy a Genie.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Theusualsuspect Best I have ever had!
I have had my share of hovers and having animals have opted for the more expensive ones with the hyper allergenic no loss of suction and so on.(you know the ones I mean)
I was looking for a cheap little hover for my business. I opened it at home to check it was ok and that is where it has stayed. My other hover was taken by the scrap man!
Seriously this is the best hover I have ever had. Fantastic. Only one drawback is the cord. It is not long enough and as previous reviewers have said the cord should have a hook near the handle. Petty really considering. Go buy one today. I have 3. One upstairs one downstairs and one in my business. Best buy for years. Buy one today!

Rated 4 out of 5 by chango A bargain vac
I was looking for a lightweight cleaner but with lots of power. This fits the bill very well and is a remarkable price when you consider how much power it has. It really shifted the ingrained dirt from my carpets and the removable nozzle is brilliant for hard surfaces. It's very easy to empty and small enough to stow tidily. I wish the hose were longer for reaching above door height and the cyclone holder looks a bit fragile. It's not that good for hard floors because you have to use the hose instead of the roller brush. But it's not expensive and does its job very well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by woffinden5 Best Purchase Ever
I bought this hoover for my 3 bedroom home after reading all the good reviews and I have to say they didn't lie. It's the best I've ever had. It's small and light enough to carry up and downstairs, the suction on it is amazing for such a little hoover. I have 2 cats and it pulled cat hair up straight away, my other hoover wouldn't touch them that's why I bought this 1. The only bad points I could say about it is it could do with a longer hose but it's not that much of a issue and that it doesn't hold much and needs emptying more but again not that much of a issue it's still a fantastic hoover.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hollsgirl Fantastic value
This is a great vacuum, easy to assemble. Takes seconds to empty dustbox and to clean filters. This machine seems to be based on my other very expensive cleaner but at a fraction of the cost. Excellent suction when using upright and on board tools mean they are to hand for awkward places. Not too bulky either. Purchased while on offer, making this excellent value for money. I would recommend this item.

Rated 5 out of 5 by may13 Great value vacuum
Having read the reviews I was pleasantly surprised to find the vacuum stood up to all the positive ones. It has great suction, no more going over the same patch of carpet a million times to pick up hair & sock fluff!! It's very compact but packs a punch. My only real criticism would be that it lacks a little in height, but then I knew the dimensions before I purchased it so I'm not complaining...
Overall, it is a great value vacuum and I'm very happy I got it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mama4papa IMPRESSED!
I initially purchased this as a 2nd vacuum for upstairs but my other vacuum for downstairs a well known brand let me down because it scorched my carpet in several places, this is now my main and I purchased another while on offer as a spare because I was so impressed with the 1st which I've had for about two years, it's lightweight, easy to carry, easy to manoeuvre, the suction is brilliant on both carpet and hard floors, I have a cat and have no problems with it picking up the hairs, it comes with two extra tools which come in very handy, my parents have purchased one aswel after seeing mine in action!

bought this a week ago 9/4/2012 great little vac very light yet plenty of power have a red hall rug and a white cat gets pet hairs up no fuss easy to put together only one screw done in 3 mins easy to empty only given 4 stars mainly because there is no extenstion tube for the crevis tool so you have to stoop very low but solved that by finding a old one that fits and the lead is down by the floor took me a week to find under the handle there is a little hook you can fit lead into yes would buy again

Rated 5 out of 5 by boomum Best purchase to date
I only have carpets upstairs so wanted a small hoover to keep in the airing cupboard. This hoover is so lightweight and easy to assemble and use. The suction power is out of this world, either I had a very dirty house or the power on this hoover is very high! Long lead enables me to leave it plugged in and also do stairs! Only criticism is that to try and get cobwebs from ceiling with the hose you have to lift hoover up as hose lead not long enough. Overall brilliant!

Not sure yet if I can get on with this vacuum. Yes its light to carry, but hurts my back when using, It seems hard to push, Picks up great. Going to speak to someone about this problem, maybe it needs adjusting.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Butterfly29 Great Suction!
Lightweight, easy to use and carry up/down the stairs. Powerful suction, amazing how much its collects in the bin! Nice colour,design and generally a cute product! Few cons: its really plasticky,
toy-ish almost, so can't see it lasting for long without cracks appearing in the hose pipe or it just breaking and cracking apart totally, thats got to be the worst point! Also dislike the fan blowing at the top of the bin when you're vacuuming away! Hose could've been a bit longer to reach in high up places. It does say not suitable for hard floors but worked ok on laminate flooring.
