2.Morphy Richards supervac review

Morphy Richards have been making various household appliances since long, and introducing a wide range of Super-Vac cordless hoovers. These models are available at all price points. However, their Morphy Richards Super-Vac is one of their entry-level model, that is quite economical and budget friendly, can be used as an upright and handheld, and also comes with various accessories. The higher priced cordless vacuum cleaners are considered to deliver brilliant suction and optimum performance, when compared with their corded counterparts. But for those who don’t want to pay a hefty price tag. is there any cheaper model that can compete?

Specs and Features

  • 2 in one design for a handheld and upright vacuuming makes the Morphy Richards Super Vac cordless hoover an excellent choice for versatile use.
  •  The main housing of the vacuum and brush bar with head are in the upright section, while the handheld can be removed with a simple release button for other tasks.
  •  Unlike some other affordable models, the 722005 has a low and high power setting. Many will find the high power setting especially necessary on carpeted flooring.
  •  However, we know the battery provides 18 volts and can supply continuous power for up to 35 minutes on the lowest power setting. As mentioned, it comes with a charging cradle which should be placed where you plan to store the cordless hoover.
  •  It is ergonomic, light (a little under 4kg), and easy to use – which also means it’s elderly friendly. 
  • Soft brush bar really works wonders here, sweeping up fine dust that even top-spec corded cleaners might leave behind.


Pros and Cons

  • Handheld and Upright.
  • Pet hair clogging in brush.
  • Floor Friendly and compact.
  • Less runtime (25 minutes)
  • Swivels for extra manoeuvrability
  • Heavier in handheld.
  • Easy access to corners.
  • Lesser drum capacity.
  • Foldable stick design.

But it is heavier in lifting and lesser run time. Apart from that, it’s a good vacuum with comes with an adjustable power option and foldable stick.

3.Dyson DC40 Review

Dyson DC40  gives an unquestionable performance in suction power, cleaning ability and its potential. It bears the most up to date Radial Root Cyclone technology of all times, which captures more dust and dirt than any previous technology from Dyson. A state of the art piece by dyson so far .The high rate of  air speed from Cyclone technology makes pet hair, dander, and dust get into the bin really fast. The cleaning capacity of Dyson DC40 cannot be questioned as it comes with sealed HEPA system, which effectively eliminates every  allergen particle, so it’s great for people who suffer from asthmatic and other allergy problems. In fact, it captures microscopic dirt and dust particles down to 0.5 microns. And that’s something not every vacuum cleaner is capable of!
