very ordinary - shop around
Having owned a bagless cleaner (a well known and popular brand) for about 8 years (which never missed a beat) we opted to purchase a new one and chose a VK9220NH. Well that was a mistake. We've already had one warranty claim (on the head - couldn't select hard floor brush and replaced by LG) however we've had multiple overheating shutdowns. The first stage foam filter collects significant amounts of dust and needs constant cleaning. The HEPA filter is also blocked and the vacuum (9 months old) strains to suck...The first stage door hinge broke in the first three months and is not designed for regular cleaning of the filter.

Love the compacting blade!
Many years ago, I bought an LG vacuum. When I moved house I lost all except the main body of the vacuum. So I went off to buy a new machine. I considered other brands but in the end, as my LG had never given me any trouble on the 9 years I owned it, I decided to buy another LG. At first I didn't like the tune it played when it was plugged in to the electricity, but I have now learned to appreciate it as I never forget to turn it on before vacuuming as hearing the tune is part of the process of vacuuming. With 2 teenagers and 2 cats, the children have been known to argue over who gets to use it first and it does a great job of picking up moulting cat fur. Add to this the vacuum's ability to compact dust to maximise it's dust capacity, and my teenage son loves this vacuum as he doesn't have to empty is very often! In all this has turned into a great purchase for the whole family!
