Great little sweeper”
by Mrs Clark
Have only had this a week but wish I had bought one ages ago. Can whiz around my flat in no time from carpets to long pile rug then to vinyl flooring in my kitchen and bathroom. Easy to empty, light to use - a boon for someone like myself who has a back problem. Like the customer who found the handle hard to assemble I had same problem. Used a squirt of WD40 - problem solved. I chose to buy it from Lakeland as from regularly reading reviews from other customers it appears that the after-sales service is excellent.

This has changed my life!”
Have been having a battle with our large, black slate kitchen floor since we moved into our home. EVERY crumb dropped by one of my small children (and husband...and me) shows up, + it looked permanently messy. I'd drag my normal vacuum round once a week, but it was a pain as it scratched the floor, I needed to use the wand etc. Then a friend recommended this; BRILLIANT. Doesn't scratch, + picks up everything. Did the whole house with it last week, suspect the big vacuum may not come out half as often. Only fiddly bit was getting the brush bar out to clean, was scared of snapping the plastic cover...

A difficult handle for the elderly to separate I suspect”
This Sweeper does seem to pick up most of the dog hair & general detritus that the dogs bring in from the garden - our floors are mostly uneven stone, so this is particularly impressive. However, it is quite loud & tinny and takes at least 16 hours to charge! I had great difficulty putting the elements of the handle together as they were very stiff and now find it virtually impossible to separate them.

I bought this cleaner a few months ago. I am very disappointed with it because although it picks up well on carpets I bought it to tackle pet hairs on kitchen and utility floors which are slate tiles and cushion flooring. For these surfaces it is useless because it picks up and them spits them out again.

was amazed how good this sweeper is, hairs no problem as good as my vacuum, and so easy to empty just pull the container out from the side of the machine, and to do the stairs just remove handle and the clear plastic at the front and away you go just brilliant , debated for a while do I buy one so glad I did, the machine is so light, I would definitely recommend the GTECH

Love Lakeland, Love this product but wish it would last!”
This is the second one of these little sweepers we have had and they are great but I have to say I am so disappointed with how long they last. We use ours once a week for 2 rooms in the house and they only seem to last a couple of years. They just stop holding charge. Works so well and is light and well designed it's a real shame.

Just purchased this vacuum a week ago and cant believe how wonderful it is. So easy to assemble and use. Makes cleaning light work. Only down side - no tools so still kept old Vac for that purpose. Definitely recommend this product.

Better than expected”
by Ms George
This was hard to put together - I'm not strong. I don't think I'll ever be able to dismantle it. Once I started using I thought it sounded weak, but it picks up off hard floors brilliantly -perfect for times when heaving the full size heavyweight cleaner is a chore. Tried it on a thick white rug - picked up fluff, crumbs and looked the same as if I'd used the big hoover. Very impressed. Dust box is only enough for one session but once I'd got the hang of opening it, emptying is simple. I may never use my big cleaner again!

I would recommend this sweeper to everyone. I can't believe how easy it is to use and it's so efficient. One charge goes on forever.One small problem is the dust tray is a bit difficult to remove but this is a very minor problem.

I have been amazed at the sweeping ability of this little, light, easily steerable and hard working machine. The amount of dog hairs it picks up a Out weighs our everyday cleaner, with 2 dogs this is very handy. I would highly recommend this too everyone.

I got this to attack carpets in a house we are clearing, no electricity on, so no hoover! I was really amazed at how good it was, I hadn't expected it to be so good, it was really as good as a vacuum. Very light, got into the edges and corners well, and lasted a long time before needing re-charged. Only minor issue is that re-charging takes 16 hrs, and shouldn't be longer than that, so needs careful timing! However, I am really pleased with it, can use it in-between major hoovering sessions with great results!

Smashing little find!”
by Mrs Ashworth
I bought this yesterday. I am always looking for a light household cleaner. I hate carrying the big vacum cleaner upstairs. This actually does what it says on the tin. I love it. I cant believe that I found it. My husband was very sceptical. He saw how much fluff, dust and hair that I emptied from it after use, and said: " Oh, that is because you have not cleaned for a week" Cheeky man! But, I think he is impressed. I will see how it holds up to daily use. So far so good. Thank you to Jean at Handforth dean for her advice and recommendation of this product.

A Great Time Saver”
This is a really handy product, when there are a few crumbs or pet hairs lying around, and it does the job well. But it does feel... well, plasticky, and as though it might break at any moment. I'm treating it quite gently, just in case, as I'd miss the thing now if I didn't have it!

by Mrs Hutton
I bought a electronic sweeper two years ago and I have recommended it to several people. It is a wonderful little helper to me as I have arthritis in my back and find the old upright cleaner is so heavy to handle. This little sweeper is MAGIC, LIGHT to carry about easy to empty, and empty and I wouldn't be without it. I can recommend it to everybody.

Impressive and compact”
by Mrs Frowde
Light weight, agile, easy to move around under and around things, good brushes, picks up more than my hoover such as the cats hairs and fluff in the carpet. So nice to see quickly what has been collected, easy to empty and I would think very useful for every day use for people with allergies. Easy to store, my new best friend.

This is great!! It saves me sooooo much time. I leave the main hoovering to my partner ...(who does it once a week) and I just wizz around daily with this when I see 'bits'!!!! Wish I had one years ago!

Excellent but broken!”
by Miss Burton
I received this for Christmas 2010 (I had asked for it :-) All my family have one. I love, it is great for the guinea pig sawdust etc. I used it two days ago and the handle snapped off. I was doing nothing different. There are 5 or 6 purple plastic bits that clip the handle into the base and three of them just snapped. I need to exchange it and I do want another one as they are just brilliant and the rest of my family's Gtech's have not broken so its only me with a duff one.

A note from the team: Thanks for taking the time to write your review I'm sorry to hear of the problem with the faulty handle. I'm glad our colleagues at the store we're able to sort out a replacement for you.
Good at first...”
I have the sweeper for a couple of months now. At first I was very pleased with it - light and easy to use ; very useful for a quick sweep in between vacuuming during the weekends. However it recently started to spew out dust and fluff which it collected (I use it mainly on carpets) even thought the dust compartment is empty. To sweep them off I have to run over the dust and fluff over and over again and at slow speed.

Good but misleading”
by Mrs Andrea Fahey
The Gtech sweeper was purchased as I was forever using a dustpan and brush in my kitchen due to two very large dogs a cat and two messy children. On the whole I have been impressed with its performance; however I do find that rather picking up some of the dog hairs it just pushes them around the floor resorting to me picking them up. This is not what I have got the dispute with. It clearly states in the catalogue that it will run for 90 minutes [depending on floor surface] which was what attracted me. On reading the manual supplied it states that the running time is between 25 - 60 minutes which is a lot different to that being advertised. I suggest the correct operating time is given to your customers as this is very misleading.

A note from the team: Thanks for placing your review. The supplier has confirmed that the sweeper will run up to 90 minutes and that the packaging and the instruction booklet will soon have this figure.
