mine is utter shite (Morphy Ricchards dustaway) on hard floors and not brilliant on carpet either plus is is top heavy so falls over when I am using the pathetic tools

Downstairs is a mixture of hard surfaces- laminate, tiles and lino.
Stairs and landing are carpeted as is my room; kids have laminate and bathroom and ensuite vinyl

We don't have pets and I quite fancy a cylinder this time having had upright dysons and not being over impressed

Looking for something under £150 with decent sized tools

Thank you

I'd always go for a Henry now. Had a Dyson and various other brands over the years and none of them were a patch on the Henry. And I believe it will last forever smile

If you can stretch your budget a little, I'd highly recommend a Miele Cat & Dog. It comes with different floor heads for carpet and hard floors - turbo brush for carpet, suction only for hard floors - so you get the best of both worlds.

Miele. I have an S8340, it's recently survived an encounter with quite a lot of water being sucked up into it.

I wasn't overly impressed with Henry but I realise I am in a minority, I found it had a mind of it's own, it couldn't deal with the stairs well (ours aren't a bog standard straight run though) and it's suction wasn't what I was expecting it to be.

Meile cylinder.

I've used a Henry once, I can't believe people like them so much,they are such hard work as the suction is dreadful imo.

We've got a Henry in a Henry in the garage. The suction is brilliant, but it's 2 settings. It's not so great on low power. I don't like using it in the house though as it's quite bulky and awkward to drag around. The Miele floats along behind you

Sebo Komfort cylinder is good for hard floors and carpets, miles better than a Dyson.

We ditched our Dyson for a Miele. Never having anything else, it's sublime.

thank you everyone; have just ordered a Miele cylinder from Amazon- £144
Can't believe I am this excited about a Vacuum cleaner grin

Great choice Op! I Love my Miele more than anyone should love a household appliance.
