Samsung SC8650



Constantly unblocking which is time wasting. Does not cope with dog hair. The old model we had was much better. Does not stand up to manufactures claims. Would have bought something else if we had known.

Good suction power; long lead, adequate tools

By no means light. Flimsy design, for instance in parking support for hose.; weak lead recoil spring.Controls not foot-operated, so difficult for those who can't bend easily.
