Backstory, i had a Dyson V8 with ages now, and it has been great, but it just died. I started looking for replacements, and was going to get the new Dyson version, but when doing some research, i found the TIneco Brand (which i had never heard of before). I was originally looking at the Hero, which is much cheaper, but the feature list and attachments of the pro swayed me. The ProEx was cheaper than the Dyson V8 i previously purchased.
I havent had it long, but here are my initial thoughs
1. Lots of attachments: It has more than any of the Dyson cordless stick vacuum models. 2. Decent run time: Even with the main cleaning head attached, i found the A11 will run for up to 60 minutes combined from the two Li-Ion batteries (advertised is 80, but i have carpets, so would say there is more resistance on the motor). Another great thing is that the base station can charge both batteries at the same time, which is awesome. 3. Extra battery: Minimal downtime thanks to the extra battery and the dual charging dock that can charge the spare battery while the vacuum is in use. 4.Excellent performance: I have found it to have better cleaning ability than my old Dyson V8. 5. LED light on the head attachment shows up a lot of the small dust particles, that youotherwise cant see
Couple of things i dont like (maybe dont prefer is a better word) 1. Base can only be wall mounted, so make sure you have somewhere suitable, and are happy to drill holes in your wall. 2. Quite top heave (not an issue for me, but may get wrist fatigure), and precarious is stood up using the foot.
All in all, happy with my purchase, and would buy again over teh Dyson
