Rated 4 out of 5 by RubyTues Great for a cheap vacuum
I bought this cleaner as I'm currently heavily pregnant and was struggling to lug my branded cylinder around, I'm pleased I did, it's very lightweight (almost feels toy like) but has great suction and is easy to empty. The two downsides are that the cord isn't very long but this isn't anything major, and also if you're using the tube with the attachments to clean skirting boards or anything low be careful as the cleaner has a tendency to fall over, that aside and for the price I'm very happy with the purchase

Rated 5 out of 5 by mopkiztob awesome suction and lightweight
Fantastic upright, don't be put off with it being slim line and lightweight the suction is powerful. Easy to use equally on carpet and hard floors. Easy to store and a big added bonus is bagless. Highly recommend especially for elderly with its lightness and extra tools on board.

Rated 5 out of 5 by biggazza unbeleivable for the money
wasnt expecting much from this vac because of cheap price , but it is everything you want and need for a basic home vac. simple to use , sturdy , well made , straight forward , and smaller and lighter than other vacs. the lead could be a bit longer but over all a great purchase.

This was recommended by a friend, and I can't thank her enough.
We have 2 dogs and 2 cats, and a mix of laminate and carpet. We have to hoover every day, and the beige carpet always had a sheen of black hair after hoovering with our Dyson Animal. We have had Dysons for years and I won't go back to them now.
The Genie is amazing. In honesty, it looks and feels like a kids' toy hoover. It's plasticy and small. BUT the suction is savage. Absolutely brilliant. Picks up about 4 times as much as the Dyson.

Rated 5 out of 5 by beansprout Crikey this is good!
What a bargain, I love everything about it so far. I have only had it for a few weeks but regardless I feel it was worth it, the suction is impressive albeit a little loud, but being lightweight as well is brilliant.

Rated 1 out of 5 by drgstr good for a few weeks
Taking it back for refund today to buy a different make. After a few weeks of usage it started blowing out rather than sucking in. Dont want another will be too much hassle when the same problem occurs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tristeza Good Value Product
This lightweight hoover is the best value for this price I have come across. It is powerful, sucks up dirt and dust well, and is easy to empty. It also copes well with pet hair.
The only comment I would make (and please take note manufacturers) is that the dust and dirt gets up too easily into the top part of the hoover which means that in addition to emptying the cylinder you also have to take it apart to empty all the other sections. That said it would not stop me buying another.

Rated 5 out of 5 by happyvacummer An amazing value for mony vacuum
Over the last 18 months I have had 3 vacuum cleaners all of which were so called good makes. Each were ok for about three months, but thereafter useless and had to be returned. However, this little Genie out shines all of them and at a fraction of the cost. If it only lasted 12 months I would consider it to be a bargin. Well done Asda and the makers of Genie.
If you are fed up paying a high price for a vacuum and not getting result, give this on a try, you wont regret it. 5 STARS

Rated 2 out of 5 by Notaveryhappybunny Not bad but but you get what you pay for
Bought this as a spare for upstairs, the hoover is ok does the job & picks up well but the hose & electric lead are way too short so you will need an extension lead if you have a large room to hoover & it wont do the stairs unless you're prepared to lug the hoover up & down but then you get what you pay for & for a cheapy its not bad. Take my advise though, you're probably better off paying the extra & have it delivered as the click & collect service is a complete waste of time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by sharonpetite123 Amazing for the price
I read all the reviews on this vacuum cleaner before purchasing it and decided to give it a go.
I have recently moved into a property with very dirty carpets and my old vaccum had basically given up!
I am amazed how such a small vacuum has the suction power to "lift" carpets. It is a little gem.
Even though i have been hoovering daily, this vacuum managed to fill up with dust and debris immediately and the carpets look very clean.
Fantastic value and brilliant performance.

Good value for money. Lightweight so can be carried upstairs easily. Surprisingly loud at first but proof of sucking power.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TheJugFamily Great little vac!
Firstly, I am totally impressed with Asda's super quick delivery - I ordered this on Saturday and it was with me before 11am on Monday morning. Secondly, the vacuum cleaner is very powerful, but I will probably have to empty the cylinder after every use, which is a good thing in that there won't be old dirt in the vac, but can be a bit more frequent than I would have liked. It's small, powerful, does its job well and I would recommend it to anyone. Great value for money!

Rated 5 out of 5 by struths19 Excellent Value Product
I recently bought this after reading other reviews recommending it but I did think it might be a bit too good to be true for the price. I'd previously bought a VAX pet machine as I have a dog but it has been a huge disappointment for the money I paid. This little vacuum is brilliant. Light weight easy to manoevre and it cleans really well. Only con is that the cord could do with being a couple of metres longer but I can live with that. Can't recommend it enough!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Amigomick Great Little Cleaner
I had to purchase a new cleaner as my "top of the range" cleaner finally bayed farewell due to old age. Repair costs proved to be prohibitive. Unable to test drive any of the multitude of vacuums on the market I researched the many websites. It appeared to me that the Genie seemed to have all of the attributes to fit my requirements. Lightweight, ease of maneuverability and excellent performance has far exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend this cleaner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by hiyacynth What a mover!
Terrific little cleaner, don't let size fool you, this is the best vacuum I have bought in years, the suction power is great and I can't believe that in the past I have spent five times as much on a vacuum which does not clean half as well as this one does. It is lightweight, easy to manoeuvre and cord storage is excellent, as are the little tools on board. Just as important - this cleaner is so easy to empty. This is a quality item and I highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lattemama Best £35 ever spent!
What a fantastic little hoover! Read the reviews, which prompted me to buy; I was not disappointed! I was both amazed and disgusted by the amount of c**p it picked up from my carpet! Without a doubt as good as a dyson! (which we did have a few years back). Very easy to use and not overly heavy either. Very impressed, great buy for just £35. Obviously time will only tell how long it will last, but i am hoping it will impress me further by lasting a fair while!

Rated 5 out of 5 Fantastic best ever
After trying out different hoovers over the years from a really expensive to a real cheapo, i have to say that i was a bit shocked at the price but when i put it together and turned it on, FANTASTIC, we have been struggling to clean a rug for the past couple of months and yet in one hoover the rug was clean with the Genie, and so easy to empty as well, well worth buying, great price and yes i have already recommended to 4 friends and they have ordered as well
