Vacuum Cleaners Buying Guide
Our buying guide will explain which type of vacuum cleaner would suit you most, how much you can expect to pay for one, and which features are worth looking out for.
Good stick vacuum but designed to fail
I have owned the Vax Blade for a bit more than a year. The performance is decent and good for picking up fine dust and pet fur. However, the powerhead stopped working intermittently after a few months of ownership. I investigated the issue with an electrician friend and found that one of the thin wires to the brush motor broke due to constant twisting and rubbing from daily use. Also, the filters like to clog up due to the small canister capacity as the cyclonic action is lost from dust buildup.
This is a poor design for a $250 product with a 2 year warranty.
Very happy with how versatile this is. Dont miss having a plug in vacuum. Great for in the car too. Top is little bit weighty but I knew this before purchase and doesnt bother me. Fittings are tight but you get used to them. Dont regret my purchase.
Better than Dyson!
I replaced my Dyson handheld with this vax blade and I love it! I use it on tiles and my rug - it works great on both surfaces. It’s very powerful and also has an additional function of more power and you can control if you want to turn the spin section off (something you can’t do with Dyson) this is my favourite feature as it means less tangled hair! Love and def recommend it. It is a little bulky/heavy to hold but I don’t mind it.
My new best friend!
This vacuum works well on both my tiles and carpet. The swivel head gets into all the hard places and also lies flat to reach under furniture. Battery life is great and lasts long enough to do my 3bed 2 bath house, and is light and compact enough to wip out for a quick clean up after the kids.
great vacuum strong suction
I bought a Vax vx60 cordless vacuum cleaner, it has great suction well made great for hard floors wood and tiles ,all the parts come apart for easy cleaning of the filters highly recommend it
The only positive I found was that it’s cordless. The motor is not powerful and doesn’t clean up any pet fur or hair from the carpet or tiles. Very disappointed. Could have done better with the price you pay for the vacuum

Not 100% impressed
The suction isn't that great and the wheel inside the vacumn head gets stuck with hair and no way to remove and clean it. Definitely not good for households with girls that have long hair. It's ok for a small room, but awkward to use on the whole house.
Purchased in February 2019 at Flybuys gift redemtion.

This has proved to be a great stick vacuum on both tile and carpets. Perfect for running over the house daily. Collects all the fine dust and larger rubbish completely. Easy to empty and clean and good battery life, usually up to four days. Robust construction should ensure long life and spare filter sets are well priced, purchased to allow plenty of drying time with daily usage. Filters only need to be washed occasionally.
Highly recommend unit.

Really good for the price
I'm surprised how good it is especially for the price. It has very good suction power and rotating brush is really helpful getting the fur and hair out of the carpet. Only downside is the bin is very small so you have to empty it every 10 minutes or so. This is a really vacuum cleaner if you're living in a small apartment.
I have had 2 vax blade in 16 months first one the hose in head split second one i had for 4 months does not suck to well not very good suction does not pick anything bigger than a grain of sand took it back payed extra got a dyson they are brilliant pay the extra get something decent
Good all rounder that does the job
I got this to clean up in between dragging the hose out for the ducted vacuum and so far I'm quite impressed. I have 5 cats so pet hair is a big issue and the Vax Blade does a surprisingly good job of picking it up, enough that I need to empty it before finishing the lounge carpet, the turbo brush really helps too. It does a good job on carpet and both the tiled and wood areas and the head fitting nicely on stairs. It does seem to charge fairly quickly and the battery is more than enough to do my whole house with a mix of hard and carpeted f...loors (power head does use more charge). Will this replace my ducted vacuum? No, but then you're comparing apples and oranges, but for a quick clean or for a small house or apartment this would be ideal.
Very Handy but not a Dyson
I bought this several months ago when there was a special deal going of extra tools. The one issue I have is that although the power head is handy it tends to get long hair caught in it that eventually blocks it. This is removable on the Dyson. The battery life is great however and these tend to be available at discounted prices.
AMAZING Vax Blade excellent performance for a stick vacuum
Vax Blade wow I love it we went shopping for a Dyson but they where way to expensive at the time, so the sales reps recommended the vax blade and I don’t regret not one bit in buying it.. for something so small and everyday use it has a lot of power.. not only do I do my carpets I also do my tiles and my curtains and lounge and of course my car.. it is very easy to clean and being cordless it is fantastic.. if I had to recommend a stick vacuum it would most definitely be the VAX BLADE VX60 I’m one happy housewife ....
I loved this vac when I brought it I use it on all surface tiles,carpet, my shaggy rugs ,and my floor boards it’s great to zoom around the house saves so much time and effort the battery last for about 30 mins I do my whole house in the one charge and it’s so easy to clean out the filters I have just run into the same problem my mother in law did the pipe in the brush head snaps and seem to be hard to find the replacement bit iv just used a pool pipe at the moment till I can find the right hose to replace it with
Our First Cordless Vacuum
This is our first vacuum cleaner without cord and we were very impressed with the power and the ease of use. It can conveniently be used at any time, on any surface and stored easily. We use this for both carpet and floorboard surfaces as well as to vacuum the car. The battery stands for quite a long time which allows us to clean the whole house through one charge.
Absolutely love it
I use it on hard floor without engaging the brush, it work so well. I do have one room with carpet and it works well there too. Being on a charger it is so easy and convenient, actually quicker and easier than using a broom, brush and tray. Easy to empty and clean. Great value.
I wouldn't use any other vacuum cleaner after using my Vax Blade
For 12 months I vacuum the floors because I've got two dogs who shed constantly. For example: after two full cleans with this vacuum I had enough dog-hair to make a third dog!!!!! It is so easy to empty and the filters really easy to clean. The Blade is light and manouverable. Easy to use for someone who has a bad back. The 2 hour charge equals a full 40 minutes of solid vacuuming. I love it!!!
October 6th 2018 Update: Best vacuum cleaner I've owned
I use this vacuum every day to keep the place free of dust and doghair (with two dogs this...is a must). It is a bit noisy but the light weight of the vacuum cleaner counteracts this problem. It is maneuverable and the battery life is nearly an hour of constant use. Recharge is easy and doesn't really take that long.
Easy to use, no cord is so much better!!!
The suction is great, the accessories all work well and it even picks up the human hair, as well as the pets. It is fantastic on both tiles and carpets. I can even use it after having so many operations, no pain in the back or stomach. Thanks Vax brilliant
Can't believe I did not buy one sooner.
I am loving the manouverability of cord free vacuuming and the versatility of using this to do cars lounges etc not just floors the run time can be a bit short but it has fantastic suction and it fits a lot of the job specific tools from my previous vax vacuum.
