Rated 4 out of 5 by Jammu Light weight super cleaner
I bought this online and collected it from the store, was light weight and easy to carry, easy to assemble and follow instructions, used it on two bedroom carpets and two large rugs, left the heating on and windows open and they were dry within 4 hrs. Followed the instructions by doing small areas at a time, did not get a lot of dirty water back, but after the second vacuum when they were dry carpets were brighter, cleaner and smelled lovely. Delighted with my purchase and as light and not too big easy to store and use again. Was especially impressed with the stains I saw instantly removed from one of the lighter carpets.

Bought to clean carpets in an upstairs flat. Easy to assemble and use. Tanks are small so need filled and emptied often but if they were bigger the machine would be heavier. Small filter under the dirty water tank gets clogged quickly and the machine's whine becomes a scream. Anquick wash under the tap fixes that. Because it is light the water extraction is not great but some light hand pressure on the bottom tank improves that and the carpets were dry overnight. The carpets were birty and it took two washes but it does a great job. Do not compare to hire machines but it does the job.

Rated 4 out of 5 by flopsiebunny Excellent value
Having owned a different model for years which had died a death, I wanted another Vax model, this one is excellent value for money, it does what it says. Although the water tank capacity is smaller than most models it is more than adequate to clean a carpet of an average size room on just one full tank, so I didn't find it a problem at all to empty & refill after each room.It's size is easier & lighter to manage than larger heavier models. The only thing on the down side is the brush does not rotate it just sweeps through the pile on the carpet. Altogether a brilliant model.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Clemmy Good value purchase
Bought this carpet cleaner after my husband had suffered badly with sickness from the norvovirus and wanted to ensure that the carpet was cleaned properly. I was pleased with the overall finish of the carpet and with the machine itself as I found it easy to use, fill up and empty.
Did have to hoover round again afterwards once dry to pick up lots of bits of fluff, but that may be just my carpet.
The main down side is that it is very noisy and sounds like a plane is about to take off.
However, very pleased with it for the price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Cloudsurfer Good Value for money
Bought the Vax VRS5W carpet cleaner as it was small, light, and compact. Easy to assemble and use. Have used it to clean light coloured carpets and rugs. Pleased with the results as they are a lot cleaner. Really heavy stains need to be cleaned a second time.
The small filter inside the machine needs to be cleaned regularly as it gets clogged with fluff and makes a high pitch whistling noise.
Overall, I am pleased with the machine and think that buying it was a lot better value for money than hiring a machine for a day.

I have been wanting a carpet cleaner for ages and finally got round to buying this one. I used it as soon as I got it home, on the hall carpet, which was desperately in need of a face lift. Really pleased with the results - looks like a new carpet and feels great. The carpet was very reasonably dry after cleaning and took a very short time to dry out completely. It was very easy to use and clean, after use. I would definitely recommend this machine and look forward to getting many more years of use from it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by lazydaisydog made to look good bad design
first the cleaning water holder has a round end so its hard to stand upright when filling.
second the filter that catches the dirt is to small and needs taking out and cleaning every five mins or it doesn't suck the water up.
third the dirty water container is so full of compartments and corners its very difficult to clean.
forth the water on off switch stuck and didn't stop emptying water when I released the trigger I had to take the machine apart to unstick the said valve.
I have only used it three times.

I bought this without seeing one first and must admit it is smaller than I expected but it is so light & easy to use that was soon forgotten, if you have large areas of carpet I would suggest something larger purely because of the time it takes to cover area with this one; the cleaning power is good, very noisy with an annoying background whistle; all that aside my carpets have never looked better.
Tip: buy some solution the free bottle is minute, oh and maybe ear protection.
