Messy and not a joy to use
When we needed to replace our previous high-quality vacuum I was tempted by the cheaper price and smaller size of the Philips Easylife. I was also keen to try a bagless vacuum. However, this vacuum requires lots of maintenance and the process of emptying out the dust results in dust going everywhere. The smallest item will clog up the funnel in the dust catcher (on the upside, it's easy to retrieve anything you've accidentally vacuumed up), so I often need to sweep before I vacuum. I just had to wash out the filters, which was a really messy process. In the future, I would go back to a bagged vacuum or a bagless one that compresses the dirt.

Great all rounder
I have a medium sized apartment and the bin compartment only needs emptying once I'm done- (if I vacuum once a week)
There is a small red light that indicates when it should be emptied which is a great feature.
It has great suction, and the filter is washable
It is a great colour, is compact and stores easily
I would highly recommend this product
