i would have spent more on a better vacuum but I thought this sounded just what I need. The lead is very very short so I have attached an extension cord to get around. Also the filter blocks up with particles and dust and every time I empty the vacuum I also need to clean and vacuum the filter. Not what I expected.
Purchased in June 2019 for $129.00.
It does not pick up dust or particles on wooden floor or carpet.
The noise is high pitched industrial noise and earsplitting - gives you a headache.
The recoiling lead does not recoil.
Serious improvements needed!

Re: One of the worst, shortest-lived vacuum cleaner ever
I had the misfortune of purchasing the "Kogan Mighty 2200W Cyclonic Vacuum Cleaner With Turbo Brush". Goodness me, do I seriously regret my purchase and for trusting the product's high-ratings at Kogan's site. I used the vacuum cleaner on my carpeted floor a few times since I received it early this week (Monday) without any obvious issue. Then, the vacuum cleaner suddenly lost its suction power today (Sunday). It would not even pick up small crumbs now. I regularly empty the waste container and clean the filters. When it lost power, I also chec...ked to ensure that there were no obstructions in the hoses, etc. However, the suction power loss seems to be permanent without any obvious cause, other than my suspicion that this is a very poorly-made product. As the vacuum cleaner has only been with me for less than 1 week at the time of this review, I certainly had not expected this. Kogan, you should not be selling such horrible products. To date, all my previous vacuum cleaners (e.g. Electrolux, Pullman) have lasted more than 10 years and I do know how to maintain them. I have yet to own a vacuum cleaner that has lost any suction power, much less within 1 week of receiving it! I concur with the previous reviewer (sri816888) - I would give this product a 0-star rating if that was possible. Got it on Monday, returning it on Sunday - this product is far from "Mighty". I will be seeking a refund for this product!

Don't buy- its a dud.
I would have given it a no star. Worked first time on the day we opened. Used it on the weekend next and it clogged up the filters and needed cleaning. The suction power is gone after using 2 times. Kogan shouldn't be selling this Vacuum at all an inferior product. My Phillips vacuum which is 5 years old is still better with powerful suction.
