Best vacuum I have ever owned!
5 Star Review   By Ozziegran on John Lewis - Mar 24, 2014   

Can't say enough good things about this vacuum, I have nothing bad to say about it and I get a buzz every time I use it. It is lightweight, so simple to use and your carpets look as though they have been vacuumed - unlike when I had to use my Dyson! I recommend this product to everyone I can. I am now going to purchase the new Gtech Multi for the stairs and furniture. Love it, love it, love it!

I now love hoovering
5 Star Review   By Sallyomally on John Lewis - Mar 4, 2014   

Before i purchased this light weight hoover i hated hoovering, lugging the old heavy one around the house. I have a bad back and found every excuse not to vaccum but now with this one its easy and quick. I can wizz round most of the house with in one charge aout 40 mins and i have a massive 9 bedroomed place. Its not that great in corners and on stairs but for an every day whip round its fab Be aware of tassels on rugs if you go any where near one you'll be in trouble!

Best vacuum and fantastic customer service
5 Star Review   By ValPreco on John Lewis - Feb 28, 2014   

I bought my GTECH Airam in November 2014 after reading reviews and watching videos on You Tube. I am absolutely thrilled with the performance, and one of the main benefits for me is that I can carry it upstairs with 1 finger. As there is no hose with this product, I have kept my previous vacuum for doing the edges. This said, there is now a hand held GTECH Airam available which I will save up to buy next. In addition to it being a fab product, the customer service from GTECH has been second to none. They initially replaced my battery as it was not charging properly. This did not solve the problem so they replaced my charger. This did solve the problem. Since then, I have lost a small part, perhaps in the bin. As the product is still under warranty, they sent me a whole replacement section. For all 3 of these deliveries there were no quibbles and no charges. Their warranty is a real warranty. Excellent. I can't wait to get my next product from them, the hand held version. Please note that if you purchase this at the same time as the upright you save about £80.

A hassle free and efficient vacuum
5 Star Review   By FURUS89 on John Lewis - Feb 11, 2014   

The Gtech is doubtless the best vacuum to come on to the market. Because there is no cord it is easy to manoeuvre, extremely light, very efficient and highly recommended.

BEWARE. Did not honour their warranty.
1 Star Review   By fizzking on John Lewis - Feb 7, 2014   

I bought a Gtech Air ram in October 2012, on line.It was brand new and boxed. I registered with Gtech, who emailed back to say "You are now covered by our warranty Plan" Recently the machine began to run noisily, which was unexpected because it has light weekly use in a small household, with no pets. I emailed Gtech, who said- after 3 days- "This would be covered under your warranty. I would recommend that you call our Customer Service Department on 01905-345-891 and they can arrange to repair the machine for you." When I phoned them it took some time for them to find me and then they said that it was not covered because it was bought on line and not directly from them. I pointed out that they had accepted the registration, without reservation about where I bought the machine, so they should honour their warranty. They refused and fobbed me off by saying somebody would phone me back. Surprise, total silence since then.

WORTH EVERY PENNY
5 Star Review   By olivernana on John Lewis - Feb 3, 2014   

Saw this being demonstrated at a country show last September thought it looked really good did not buy it there as I wanted to check on the internet and look at reviews about it. Went on John Lewis web site and the review were very good so decided to order one. I have been using it since them. It is amazing I have not used my other hover since I got this one you can do the whole house in a quarter of the time charge last for ages I just top it up every week I never run it flat it is great for under beds sofas and behind tv also do the stairs with it I have a well known hand held hover for around the edges. It picks up amazingly lot better than my other hover I have a long wide hall and it is so easy just to run along it. This is now one of my top things I have in my house that I would not like to be without. If you are thinking of getting one do it you will not be sorry.

I loved this cleaner but broke down twice on me
2 Star Review   By JillGlasgow on John Lewis - Jan 22, 2014   

I found this cleaner to be brilliant - easy to charge and enough battery to get all round my house. Suction also far better than expected. So easy to use compared to a traditional cleaner. Emptying the dust and cleaning filters is also relatively easy. However - reason for my low review is after 12 months I have went through 2 of these. GTech combined with John Lewis have provided great service and exchanged for me. I have now decided to go with a different manufacturer as I do not trust GTech not to breakdown again. Maybe if you have no children and little traffic in your house it would be a good cleaner for you, if you decide to buy, go easy on it!

Extremely satisfied with Gtech
5 Star Review   By spikey47 on John Lewis - Jan 14, 2014   

GTECH is easy to use and very lightweight . We have wooden floors and rugs which it tackles easily. Although there are no attachments I can still clean the carpeted stairs. I bought it because I have arthritis in my hands and I find it a joy to use and because of it's size it is easy to store -buy one.

Fantastic vacuum cleaner
5 Star Review   By Honest2 on John Lewis - Jan 9, 2014   

Given to us for Christmas, a perfect gift. Lightweight yet robust vacuum. Excellent manoeuvrability and works equally well on both hard floors and carpet. The cordless feature is a huge bonus. Fantastic product, thoroughly recommend.

best product I have bought in a long time
5 Star Review   By Angelahoover on John Lewis - Jan 8, 2014   

This hoover is brilliant, it is so light and yet very powerful. It can fit under units so they don't have to be pulled out. It is so easy to use and the charge lasts a long time, I can clean my carpets in one charge. It also charges quickly which is great if I have forgotten to plug it in. It is so light I can lift it with one hand.I would recommend this to anyone.

Beautiful product...just very fragile!
2 Star Review   By chipstick on John Lewis - Dec 28, 2013   

I was so excited to purchase this. It is beautiful to look at, easy to maintain, super-lightweight, elegant and a delight to use. I have never loved a vacuum so much! So why am I leaving a negative review? Well, perhaps I have been unlucky, but within a month of purchase it began making a horrendous noise when used. A quick call to GTech and the vacuum was swiftly replaced. The customer service was faultless and I was very impressed with their support. All was well for 6 months. I learned to be careful when using it not to treat it like 'normal' vacuums, it doesn't like picking up paper clips or pennies. It is beautiful but not as robust as one might expect of a cleaner. Then last week it suddenly and unexpectedly stopped working without explanation and will not charge or operate at all. Thankfully it is still under warranty and I hope GTech will be as helpful as they were previously, however, my confidence in the product is now in jeopardy. I still love it dearly. I just wish it's many qualities were matched by longevity and robustness!

Effortless cleaning
5 Star Review   By Kaymm on John Lewis - Dec 19, 2013   

Sad to get so excited about a domestic product but this cleaner really is brilliant. I usually hate vacuuming but since purchasing this our floors have never looked so clean! Lightweight, manoeuvrable, efficient and so easy to empty. You will probably need a hand held device to make up for lack of other tools but in my opinion well worth the investment.

Brilliant!!
5 Star Review   By Ailie on John Lewis - Dec 7, 2013   

I love this having ordered after reading all the reviews. It lives up to its name as the best ever. Having replaced my old Henry, I emptied the dust container almost 10 times on my first hoovering. It lifted up everything that the Henry had left, admittedly I have fairly new carpets so not all dirt!! Even with all the hoovering, it kept its charge enabling me to clean the whole house. It is really light and so easy to manoeuvre and made such a difference to the appearance of the carpets which are light coloured. The only slight drawback is that the dust compartment seems to be a bit small.

Gtech AirRam - its fab- you should get one!
5 Star Review   By VonBeck on John Lewis - Dec 6, 2013   

Absolutely love this product. I hate hoovering, but since buying this, generally hoover most days, both upstairs and downstairs - children can use it easily as well, and are happy to use it. its easy, quick and simple. Its light, easy to carry, and simple to empty and clean.

Versatile
5 Star Review   By lovepatx on John Lewis - Dec 3, 2013   

This vacuum is not the ideal for a devoted homemaker, but if you love a bit of engineering ingenuity and sleek design, this si the machine for you! OK so the battrey runs out - I need to charge it once a week, and there are no small tools, but it is so nifty and adaptable you need these less than the normal clumsy hefty cleaners. I love it. I clean the floors more often, as it's easier, and love how the carpets are fluffed up. excellent product.

5 Star Review   By Amanda1000 on John Lewis - Dec 1, 2013   

The BEST cordless vacuum I've ever tried. Well made, lightweight, picks up brilliantly, excellent design means that it goes flat for vacuuming under beds, sofa etc. Easy to clean filter. Absolutely LOVE IT! Worth every penny - don't hesitate.

Makes cleaning effortless
5 Star Review   By Lola54 on John Lewis - Nov 27, 2013   

This vacuum cleaner is so light, it's a delight to use. I have a 4 storey terraced house, and always hated lugging a heavy vacuum with cord, tube etc around. Now it's so easy and as it's rechargeable doesn't have to be plugged in while in use. Very efficient.

GTECH - THE BEST
5 Star Review   By whsmiff on John Lewis - Nov 27, 2013   

The GTECH AirRam Cordless Vacuum Cleaner is the best I have ever used. We have new carpets and with every clean they look like new again. My previous vacuum was so heavy. The cleaner can be charged at any time and does not take up any extra space, just plug it in and leave it. It is a pleasure to use a light weight cleaner with super suction and cleaning power. It is so easy to empty and keep clean. I would definitely recommend the GTECH cleaner.

Brilliant
5 Star Review   By GrahamN on John Lewis - Nov 15, 2013   

Have been using the cleaner for a month now and am delighted with it. It seems as good at cleaning as my Dyson and is much lighter, more maneouvrable and no cord to get tangled up. It can get into difficult places, under furniture and stairs. Surprised at the power and running time between charges. Snags: needs emprtying every five minutes but this is quick and easy. Noisier than I expected but not too obtrusive.

Fantastic!
5 Star Review   By Moll16 on John Lewis - Nov 12, 2013   

I wish I had seen these before, my new AirRam has transformed the tedious task of vacuuming the house. It is light, easy to use and on one charge will last for all of our 5 bedroom house with no problem. So simple to empty and no expensive bags to replace, I love it. Rather noisy but has great suction so who cares?

Great handy vacuum
5 Star Review   By Jan46 on John Lewis - Nov 12, 2013   

Love this Gtech, does what it says on the box. Easy to handle, goes everywhere, under chairs, into corners. Easy to store and doesn't take up much room. Would highly recommend

5 Star Review   By snodjob on John Lewis - Nov 4, 2013   

With the Gtech being so light to use and no gable to drag around can vaccum the house in half the time, with little effort, I can lift it up with my small finger it is that light, over the years have had all makes of vaccums and this is by far the best yet, and saves time and money very pleased with purchase.

just buy it
5 Star Review   By hydrangealady on John Lewis - Nov 4, 2013   

I had my doubts, that's why I bought it from J.L. There are no instructions, but it is simple to put together. There are no tools, so you won't be able to do crevices or curtains, and it looks a bit plastic-y and fragile. Once a month you have to clear the brushes of hair and fibres that wrap themselves around the roller that the brushes sit upon, but to me all of this is insignificant when you feel the manouverability, the weight (so much lighter than any other vac I have used) and see the embarrassing amount of dirt and pet hair that it picks up. It lifted the pile of my carpet, it looks new again. It managed my rugs with no problems. When you empty it, you need to tap the filters free of dust, and it does pick up a lot of dust, but I'd rather tap the filter outside and know that dust is no longer in my house!

makes a chore a joy
5 Star Review   By inwest on John Lewis - Nov 2, 2013   

This vacuum is everything an appliance should be, innovative, easy to use and effective. It is so easy just to whip it out and clean up because it is light and maneuverable without a cord to knot up or pull out of the socket and, because it is so light you dont chip your paint work if you bump the sides. You CANNOT get into sides and corners or easily do stairs as there are no attachments but who cares? it REALLY doesnt loose suction its powerful, clean and easy to empty just buy it! I hate housework and I love it !

Gtech AirRam Cordless Vacuum Cleaner
5 Star Review   By ArgyBargy99 on John Lewis - Oct 23, 2013   

Absolutely fantastic! Expensive but does a brilliant job. It is so easy to use. Would not replace a normal cleaner if you need to use tools as this does not have any, but if you need to just spruce up the place quickly and easily this cannot be beaton.

The best thing I have ever brought, my carpet looks like brand new every time I vacuum. So easy to use it is a pleasure to actually do house work now. I just hope that they can come up with an iron that is as much of a pleasure to use.

A Little Gem
5 Star Review   By DustBuster on John Lewis - Oct 11, 2013   

If I had any doubts about this product before I used it, I don't now! Easy to assemble and easy to use with an impressive performance. Not as noisy as I had anticipated, portable, light and very manouverable. It cleaned an already clean carpet and the amount of fluff, dirt and grit it picked up was nothing short of incredible. Even my wife, who was a sceptic, was impressed and like me is now a confirmed convert. No accessories that is true, but our "old" Henry can get in those hard to reach nooks and crannies. A delight to use, I even enjoy vaccuming now!

Just what I waited for!
5 Star Review   By MC454 on John Lewis - Oct 9, 2013   

I am very pleased with the Gtech AirRam Cordless Vacuum Cleaner. It does the job without me feeling exhausted afterwards and emptying the compacted dust is easy. My house has not been that clean for ages. As I like using the cleaner so much (it is so light) I get it out most days and the battery lasts to do our five bedroom house in one session if I wanted to. I even use it on the stairs. The best thing we ever purchased!

best vacuum cleaner I've ever owned
5 Star Review   By gigi123 on John Lewis - Oct 9, 2013

5 Star Review   By Kola on John Lewis - Oct 5, 2013   

I am so pleased with the Gtect Airam, it does what it says on the box, outstanding performance against the well known D cordless, only downside is the charger cord is really short, needs to plug into a low level socket. Best buy ever

Excellent
5 Star Review   By Maggiecats on John Lewis - Sep 23, 2013   

I am always looking for equipment that actually works and more often than not I'm disappointed. Not so with this. I have a sebo vacuum cleaner which I have been quite happy with but was looking for something lighter. I had already vacuumed the floors before it arrived but went over it again. I was embarrassed at how much dirt and pet hair it collected! It's very easy to use, manoeuvrable, easy to empty and lightweight. As I don't have stairs the lack of attachment were not an issue and neither do I use attachments to clean around the edges - I have pets so I prefer a damp cloth. I don't have any negative comments, only observations. - a light to show when it needed emptying would be useful, although I do need to empty each time, and I don't think that would hold a charge for four hours cleaning. Other than those minor points it is excellent.

Really very good workhorse cleaner
5 Star Review   By Raymog on John Lewis - Sep 14, 2013   

The airram makes the perfect accompaniment to your standard vacuum cleaner. The airram does all the large floor surfaces, then I finish up with a cylinder in all the crevices and on the stairs. It will probably pay for itself in not only electricity savings and bags, but in not having put your back out or tripping on the lead of your conventional clumsy upright. It is perfect for ongoing topup cleans. Just keeping things tidy. It is leagues ahead of certain bagless alternatives. The battery lasts for weeks of use without charge. Customer service is A1.

Brilliant, powerful & light weight
5 Star Review   By Jilly31 on John Lewis - Sep 6, 2013   

Not being one for housework generally, I have to say I am really pleased with this. I have a bad back and its so easy to use and maneuver around furniture, under the bed, etc without tripping over long power leads. We also have holiday lets and its made it much easier to clean them with this. It lasts for ages and doesn't lose power as you are using it. I have a Dyson Animal which is really good but heavy and awkward and although I still use this for the carpets upstairs once a week, the rest of the time I give it a quick run round with the AirRam which takes minutes! Downstairs we have hard flooring and it wizzes over this and picks up dog hair easily. I am really impressed.

Amazing - A Fantastic Quick and Efficient Cleaner
5 Star Review   By CleaningFanatic on John Lewis - Aug 21, 2013   

Have just taken delivery of this amazing vacuum cleaner and after an hours charge have cleaned all the downstairs of our brand new house. Admittedly I did have to empty it quite a lot, but we have brand new carpets, so completely understandable. Would I love it so much if it was my only vacuum cleaner in the house, probably not, as not ideal for stairs. But for a quick clean up with out all the hassle of getting the big hoover out and moving the cable from room to room, this is perfect and gives fantastic results. If you only do one thing this year, buy this (just as long as you main hoover doesn't get too upset!).

Disappointed
2 Star Review   By Alena44 on John Lewis - Aug 19, 2013   

Very disappointed with this item, handle is fixed, so not too easy for stairs, doesn't do edges very close. I was asked to recommend it, but said I couldn't. As for "bricketts, it's just like any other cleaner, the filters get VERY dusty, not good for Asthma suffers like me. Could not recommend.

The best vacuum ever made - just buy it!
5 Star Review   By PollyAndy73 on John Lewis - Aug 4, 2013   

I bought an AirRam recently after doing loads of research online. We have 2 house cats and have a 4 bed house with carpets and hard floors in some rooms. Manufacturers have tried and failed to make the 'ideal' model that we all crave; one that's cordless, lightweight and powerful. Well I have to say the AirRam is all of those things. It charges up really quickly, it's extremely manoeuvrable (especially on hard floors - it moves with just one finger on the handle!). Many vacuum cleaner manufacturers claim their cleaners are lightweight - mainly because technically they are slightly lighter than their competitor's. The AirRam can be carried in one hand very easily, thanks to the handle half way down - it's so refreshing to just switch off, pick it up and move to the next room. It performs like a dream, leaving even our oldest carpets with a track (like when you mow a lawn) which is really impressive. I am so pleased with this little beauty! Yes, visually it looks like an expensive sweeper. But you have to ask yourself what would your ideal vac be like? This was designed for people who want a truly lightweight, easy to use vacuum that's very powerful. It also looks really funky and 'Apple-esque' too, which I really like. GTech's attention to detail is worth noting too; even the packaging is well thought out. The handle on the box is slightly offset so the contents are perfectly balanced. The instructions are fab too - you simply click the handed in to the base and - welll that's it, that's all you do... Downsides? Well the only tiny thing is having to empty it more often. That's probably because it picks up so much dust & fluff, even on carpets that look clean. I'd describe the AirRam as a wolf in sheep's clothing. It looks small and light so you'd think it wouldn't pick up as well as say, a Dyson. But don't be fooled. Don't hesitate to get yourself one of these. You will wonder how you ever got by without one. Well done GTech!

a bit over hyped
4 Star Review   By maddycat on John Lewis - Jun 6, 2013   

I purchased this product a few months ago because I have a breathing problem and needed something light to push. I did found it very light to use however where the carpet has less wear it was quite hard to push and I was worried the belt would break due to the extra effort needed!.It is amazing how much dirt it picks up even when you think the carpet is clean! When I empty the waste I have never seen the hard brick like pieces as advertised it is just a lot of dust and hairs that any other vacuum picks up which is disappointing as have to empty it more than I thought. It is great for a quick clean with good results but at a price!

Gtech AirRam cordless vacuum Cleaner
5 Star Review   By Maureen23 on John Lewis - May 21, 2013   

This vacuum is so much lighter than my other machine and therefore easier to carry around the house. I've been surprised how efficient it is and because it has a flexible handle it is possible to move around without difficulty in a small space. Not having to worry about a trailing cord is also a big advantage. An excellent product.

Amazing
5 Star Review   By Jennifer48 on John Lewis - May 16, 2013   

Whilst walking through my local john Lewis Store I happend to see this vacuum being demonstrated, picking up dirt from the hard floor with ease as well as carpet. Then I noticed it was cordless, this intrigued me, so I asked the gentleman a lot of questions, which he answered very confidently and passionatly. I purchased on the spot, which for me is rare. Especially this being a cordless item, which normally promise wonderful results and deliver pathetic performance, which is not the case for the Gtech Airram. Everything the nice gentleman said to me is true. This is the best vacuum i have ever owned and have recommended to many friends and family hence this review as well. Its so light, so easy to use, so easy and clean to empty, great on the stairs and the performance is mind boggling. Don't hesitate to buy this, as it has made cleaning a plesure which is odd but true. Thank you Gtech and to the gentleman in store, brilliant.

Brilliant Air Ram
5 Star Review   By lindot on John Lewis - May 13, 2013   

Its so light and versatile and fantastic with picking up dog hairs. My kitchen is the main family meeting area, so the carpet needs vacuuming every day, the air ram goes right into the edges and under the units, to reach every area. So easy to empty and mobile to access any part of the house. I looked at the market choices and made the right decision, with the air ram now being used all over the house and stairs are no problem. The Dyson now stays in the cupboard, as all the family are very willing to vacuum with the GTech Air Ram. Brilliant Buy.

Lasted 3 days
3 Star Review   By Wendy50 on John Lewis - May 6, 2013   

This is a great machine , makes vacuuming enjoyable but having received it only 3 days ago was surprised that it stopped working 2 days later! Gtech Customer service is closed today so thats a bit poor. Oh we'll, back to the heavy but reliable Dyson.

The Apple Mac of vacuum cleaners
5 Star Review   By Sarahface on John Lewis - Apr 17, 2013   

You know when they say "A revolution in [insert fad here] technology" I think its actually true here! It really is good, easy to set up, click the handle on and pop the battery in and you're ready to go. Really good suction, gives that "just hoovered" feel that I've heard other cordless vacuums don't give (dyson). I was a little worried about the stairs without any attachements but actually the suction around the sides is really quite good so it hasn't been a problem so far. We were originally going to get a dyson, but got this instead, after a bit of research it seemed like the suction on this would be much better, as is the battery life. The motor is right next to the dust collection and where it actually sucks in, whereas with the dyson theres a big long tube it has to suck all the way up.. i was dubious. It is a little heavier than the dyson but you dont really notice as mostly its on the floor (whereas you have to carry the dyson in one arm everywhere). Plus it's got a handy carry handle half way up which is surprisingly useful! Glad I went with this, cheaper and sexier.

Lightweight hoover
5 Star Review   By jjberkshire on John Lewis - Apr 13, 2013   

Was a bit spectical about this hoover, but wanted to try something different as have been through so many other hoovers and not been happy with any of them. I must say once it arrived I was really pleased, sucked up just as well as a traditional hoover, lightest hoover I've ever come across and charge lasts a long time. looks great and does a fab job, so easy to steer as well! My mum wants one now! Really good hoover if you have pets/kids and you need to run hoover round quickly everyday without having to plug in. Only negative is no hose for stairs, etc but I just use a mini hoover for those areas now.

Fantastic Product
5 Star Review   By Mumoftwingirls on John Lewis - Mar 20, 2013   

Wow, I love it. It makes life so simple, simple to put together, quick charging, lasts for ages, easy to empty, effortless hoovering, so quick to grab and clean, it is really light weight too which is a big plus when you have a lot of rooms to do. Makes an excellent job on hard floors or carpets. I would highly recommend this product.

Excellent so far!
5 Star Review   By kre845 on John Lewis - Mar 19, 2013   

Having been using a fairly useless cheap Electrolux we decided to get a new vacuum. After some research and debate between this and a Sebo Felix we plumped for this because: it had great reviews, it was light, it compacted the dust rather than emptying multiple nasty filters like we had before and it is a British product too (a bonus!) I will admit that I have only just used it for the first time but so far I have not been disappointed. I had to empty the compartment about 3/4 times going round our 4 bedroom house and the carpets are visibly cleaner. You can't get into every nook and cranny, that is true, but we are planning on using a handheld for that anyway. Coverage was better to the edges of carpets than I had expected. Here's hoping it all lasts!!!

Started well
3 Star Review   By Mchick on John Lewis - Mar 18, 2013   

I thought this was wonderful when I received it. It cleaned brilliantly, was light and well designed . BUT after 2 weeks it made a horrible noise and bits of green plastic dropped out. We think that while it coped very well with wooden and tiled floors, the carpets caused too much friction for it to cope with, and the gears suffered. A design fault as somebody else pointed out. John Lewis refunded the cost with no problem at all, so 5 stars for service and the first 2 weeks of use, but unfortunately overall only 3 stars.

Revelation
5 Star Review   By K8ste on John Lewis - Mar 16, 2013   

What a wonderful vacuum cleaner the GTech AirRam is. It has made my life so much easier and I now have so much more spare time as it has halved my time spent on cleaneing. I would strongly recommend this vacuum. 3 key benefits are, NO CORD, SUPER LIGHT AND SO EASY TO USE.

Would not recommend!
1 Star Review   By TomTomJnr on John Lewis - Mar 10, 2013   

I saw the adverts with £30 off, looked at the five star rating and decided to buy it: what a big mistake! It certainly charges quickly but I can't comment on how long a charge lasts since it stopped working after less than ten minutes use. Powerful suction, light and manoeuvrable but no gadgets so I can't use a nozzle to get right into the skirting boards. No reduce flow either, on my ten year old machine, if I catch the edge of a mat, I flick the suction control, and pull back to release the jam. The airram on/off switch isn't on the handle but a foot lower so you can't switch off quickly when it jams. The first jam on my airram caused no problems but the second time it happened it died and the indicator lights went off. Looking at the instruction manual was no help at all, the information on the box containing the airram has more relevant information than the useless manual. I tried removing/reinserting the power pack then tried emptying the dust compartment. No small compacted cubes of dust to dispose of as advertised, just dirt! So I tried ringing GTech on a Saturday morning but assistance is only available office hours Mon-Thu & part of Fri. I returned my cleaner to John Lewis who refunded my purchase without question. I have now taken the time to read some of the reviews, I should have done this earlier. How on earth can users who have to clean with a conventional vacuum to pick up larger debris before using the airram still rate it highly? Other comments regarding how fragile it is and still four/five stars. I'd certainly suggest reading the reviews rather than buying the product based upon its star rating.

Excellent cleaning
5 Star Review   By Jpuxb on John Lewis - Mar 3, 2013   

This is so easy to use. I can vacuum my house at least twice as quickly as with my old dyson. It also picks up so much more dust and dirt, and emptying it is a doddle. It is very light to manoveure too. Highly highly recommended.

5 Star Review   By MAG2 on John Lewis - Feb 21, 2013   

Vacuuming is now a pleasure - this is a fantastic cleaner and although it doesn't have attachments, it makes up for that with its lightness, efficiency and ease of use. Not having to plug it in and have a trailing lead is wonderful. I love it!

Buy it!
5 Star Review   By JaneyCollywobbles on John Lewis - Feb 18, 2013   

I am not mad on housework, but with two cats I have to vacuum quite a lot. Bought this as my old vac was so unbelievably heavy and noisy, I was exhausted after an hour or so of lugging it around etc. This little machine is utterly, utterly brilliant! OK, you don't get crevice tools etc, but I have bought a little rechargeable one for that, and I can tell you, this has changed my life. Sorry, sounding a bit like a housewife, but honestly, this is a brilliant little gadget! Buy it, buy it.....!

Wonderful cleaner....BUT
4 Star Review   By Linda176 on John Lewis - Feb 5, 2013   

It really is a wonderful cleaner to use, light and powerful. BUT just like a few cases noted on this Board it started making a loud rattling noise, as if something metallic had been caught in the fan blades, and small green pieces of plastic started coming out of the bottom. Impossible to investigate so took it back to JLP who were wonderful as usual and replaced it without fuss. A possible design fault, maybe??

Very light and manoeuvrable
5 Star Review   By AdeleP on John Lewis - Feb 1, 2013   

I bought this as an 'upstairs' vacuum as my old Dyson is very heavy to lift. It is very light and manoeuvrable and it picks up really well. Its weight is less than half that of the Dyson and it is a lot easier to empty.

A vacuuming revelation!!
5 Star Review   By poldoc on John Lewis - Jan 28, 2013   

After having had 6 Dyson's over the years I was somewhat skeptical about the AirRam's claims. However after selling my last Dyson on eBay due to its weight and unwieldiness I purchased the AirRam. I thought I had vacuumed the house yesterday morning with my Dyson Slim but after using the AirRam the amount of dirt collected was boggling. This is the best vacuum cleaner I have owned, bar none and I have no hesitation in recommending it.

animal house
4 Star Review   By dalmation on John Lewis - Jan 20, 2013   

I bought one of these cleaners in June last year and it was excellent. I have pets and live by the sea so we have sand, grit, gravel etc to clean up and it is amazing removing white dog hair from a chocolate brown carpet. However on one occasion something was sucked into it which would not clear into the dust container, but just rattled around inside destoying the blades. I couldn't see what it was but sounded like a small coin or stone. John Lewis were excellent and changed it over no problems. But I am now wary of using it before I have previously used my old vaccuum over the floor, to remove any foreign bodies I can't see, which may cause a repeat of the above. Whilst I do love this cleaner, it is very delicate, hence the 4 star rating.

A lightweight machine, but punches above its weight
5 Star Review   By Krusty1956 on John Lewis - Jan 16, 2013   

My brother showed me his GTech and I was impressed. It's light weight and easy use has 'encouraged' others in the house to use the cleaner. So much easier to get out than our heavy Henry. We have a Dyson too, but the sweeper attachment on the Dyson is a pain to clean. On the AirRam, the sweeper is easily cleaned. The collection box does need regular emptying, but its easy to do and not messy. All in all, a brilliant buy . It's used more often than our old ones were, and is easier to look after.

Gtech AirRam review
5 Star Review   By Firehouse999 on John Lewis - Jan 16, 2013   

Purchased for my 85 year old father who was struggling to vacuum his carpets with a cylinder type cleaner, we looked at the Gtech AirRam and compared it directly with other cordless and corded uprights and read the Which review. It won hands down on weight and ease of use, has a good battery life and has performed extremely well on a variety of floor surfaces, pick up is excellent.

A masterpiece of design and utility.
5 Star Review   By law47 on John Lewis - Jan 10, 2013   

My wife has complained for some time about the weight and unwieldiness of our Dyson. This product has beaten it hands down for efficiency and ease of use. It is light, manoueverable and extremely effective. It is hard to believe that such a light machine has such powerful suction. Charging is easy and the battery can be charged up unobtrusively out of the machine itself. The absence of attachments is not really a problem as the machine is light enough to be lifted to many places. A masterpiece of design and utility.

Powerful, useful, easy & light!
4 Star Review   By Charleston on John Lewis - Jan 8, 2013   

After an overnight charge the unit was used on porcelain tles, laminate & bathroom wood flooring, Turkish rug, normal carpeting and short pile bath mats. For 20/30 minutes it performed execellently well and produced 2 reasonably formed pads of waste that was easily & efficiently emptied. However, the motor began a higher pitch noise and then small slivers of green plastic began to appear on the floor....So unfortunate, so disappointing! So I took it back to JL. Watch another review for the result as I am only supposed to review the product. But the product is much as it says about itself, which I have summarised in the title.

This is the best!
5 Star Review   By Ann065 on John Lewis - Dec 15, 2012   

At last somebody has given thought to the fact that not everyone is capable of lifting a heavy cleaner,let alone using it. For a start it is so easy to assemble, and that is a real bonus, as for using it well the suction is great, emptying dirt tray a doddle, even my husband thinks it is great! I should mention that I have a disability from a stroke wihich has left my right arm with roughly half the muscle strength and no feeling in the hand, so it was absolutely wonderful to find this product.

ALL THE HYPE IS TRUE!!!
5 Star Review   By Emily76 on John Lewis - Dec 5, 2012   

The GTech AirRam has made cleaning a pleasure. Its the lightest upright vacuum cleaner available, No cord to trip over, no unplugging form room to room, so simple. Really easy to empty. Equally great on hard floors and carpet. Cleans better than our old vacuum which was a Dyson. Every house should have an Air Ram it's that good...!

5 Star Review   By HimandHer on John Lewis - Dec 4, 2012   

My wife was looking for an efficient but lightweight vacuum cleaner, as our previous cleaner, although excellent in most respects, was heavy and awkward for her to handle. We decided to give the Gtech AirRam a whirl - and we were delighted - it cleaned well, was light and easy to handle, and there was sufficient life in one charge to do upstairs in one session, and downstairs after a recharge. It was also easy to empty and clean. I don't think the previous cleaner will see the light of day again !

5 Star Review   By Louise46 on John Lewis - Nov 21, 2012   

I am absolutely delighted with this cleaner - well worth the money, even without any attachments, which is the only negative I can think of. It cleans very well, it's easy to empty, it's smart, doesn't take up much cupboard space and it's very light. All that and it's cordless! Vacuuming is now a pleasure rather than a chore! I was so keen to try it out when I first got it that I managed to ignore the labels and fitted the handle the wrong way round! A quick call to Gtech customer services soon sorted that out though. I've raved about it to both my daughters and several friends who think I'm a bit mad to be so enthusiastic about a vacuum cleaner, but I really do love it!

Brilliant for a busy mum!
5 Star Review   By Happyhippyflower on John Lewis - Nov 19, 2012   

Never thought I would love hoovering, but this really is brilliant! I can leave it in the kitchen all the time for a quick crumb pick up because it looks so smart and doesn't have lots of trailing leads. I can also hoover with a baby on one hip, as aside from on he stairs it is easy to navigate with one hand .....and you don't need to use your other hand to constantly fiddle with detangling a lead. Perfect for quick tidy ups when you don't need ...or want to hoover the whole house!....you feel obliged to with a normal vacuum with a cord, by the time you have got it all out of the cupboard! At first I had to empty it a shocking amount of times (I am telling myself this is because I have newish carpets and my old hoover wasnt working properly!!!!) but now I only need to empty it after each floor of the house! Hope the rumour is true about new attachments.....because that is currently the only downside .....I will need to keep my old vacuum for an occasional whizz around the edges of tight corners with a hose! Can't recommend enough! Well worth the money!

Awsome power
5 Star Review   By Rod17 on John Lewis - Nov 19, 2012   

This cleaner has a ridiculous amount of power from a 22 volt battery. Picks up dirt that other cleaners leave. With the AirRam it is possible to clean a 5 bedroom house in 20 minutes, a quarter of the time needed for a heavy plug in upright. Two minor downsides :- 1. No tools so only does the floors 2. No exercise benefits because it is effortless!

Terrific product!
5 Star Review   By Jacanty on John Lewis - Nov 14, 2012   

I've had both uprights and cylinder cleaners and they have all had one thing in common, they're all heavy, leaving me exhausted after cleaning the house. Yes, this hasn't got any tools (but I've still got my excellent Sebo cylinder, though it's not getting used much now) and yes, it's pricey, but it is so easy to use, I can race round the house without creating a bead of sweat, so frankly it's worth every penny as the cleaning is so thorough. To those who complain about the 5 year guarantee not covering cover the battery . Would you expect such a guarantee on any other battery? It all depends on how much you use it. If it's everyday then it's less likely to last 5 years than if used twice a week. I've had the Air Ram's baby sibling, the Electric Sweeper, for over two years now, using it regularly, and the battery is still going strong.

Although this item was a good electronic sweeper that it all it was very overated and over priced, brok within 2 weeks of me having it when it got a jam would no longer chrage and completetely stopped working what a shock after all the reviews this needs to be improved and tools should come with it at the price, although I do think it does pick up well and has long lasting charge.

5 Star Review   By Sue149 on John Lewis - Nov 7, 2012   

This Gtech vacuum cleaner is just what I had been looking for. It is so light and easy to use, particularly on the stairs. It is also very quick and convenient to empty it. I particularly like not having to bother with or worry about a trailing cable. Charging the battery is simple. The AirRam is also very efficient and my carpets now look so much better. It also works well on hard floors, eg. in the kitchen. Very good customer service from John Lewis.

A well made light weight machine. Picks up on all surfaces and has excellent suction. Easy to clean. The customer services department was very helpful when we had to make an enquiry. Even more important it is a British company that has designed a great product.

A Blessing
5 Star Review   By JWRPH on John Lewis - Nov 6, 2012   

Having struggled for years with a heavy vacuum cleaner, my wife blesses me every time she uses her Gtech.! We have fitted carpets, a dog and a three storey house. Whereas vacuuming was a drag, now it is almost a pleasure. The Gtech is not only incredibly light, but it is equally efficient - not only on the carpets and the stairs, but also on the polished boards in the hall and tiles in the kitchen. Because of its lack of weight and no cord, the stairs, in particular, can be vacuumed more often and with minimal effort. Christmas came early this year!

Great Vacuum cleaner
5 Star Review   By GadgetLover on John Lewis - Nov 6, 2012   

This is an absolutely great vacuum cleaner and it does everything it says it will. I already have an expensive upright cleaner which is very good but is also heavy so I find I am using the Gtech cleaner more than my 'main' one. If I have one quibble, it is that I can't judge when it is going to run out of charge because it seems to stop suddenly when it is still showing two bars but this is a minor inconvenience.

Marvelous cleaner
5 Star Review   By sunnyside51 on John Lewis - Nov 4, 2012   

I thought that the other reviewers were exagerating about how good the Gtech was, now I know they were not. This is the best vacuum cleaner I have ever purchased and I am 65. I always thought that the carpets in my home were clean, but having used it for a week I now know they were not. This vacuum cleaner is so light that it is perfect for anyone who has difficulty in using a conventinal machine.

This will change your life!
5 Star Review   By Justine3210 on John Lewis - Oct 21, 2012   

Can't believe that I'm posting about a vacuum cleaner but this is seriously amazing. It is so light and the cleaning power so good that you can just get it out really quickly and clean up in no time. No hassle with winding cables and carrying heavy pieces of equipment up and down the stairs. Just don't feel so stressed when one of the kids, or the dogs, walks all over the place with dirty feet

WOW...what a machine
5 Star Review   By Grannyof4 on John Lewis - Oct 18, 2012   

I recently had a hip replacement operation and in 5 weeks am having a knee replacement done. I am not allowed to carry heavy things around and as one of my vacuum cleaners is on its last legs decided to look at the Gtech AirRam. I have had Gtech machines in the past and have always been brilliant. This machine is amazing and does exactly what it claims. Living on my own most of the time the house doesn't get dirty but I can't stand bits on carpets so this is ideal for me in my present incapacitated state and I can even carry it with ease up to my top floor as well as just the 1st floor.

Absolutely Superb!
5 Star Review   By JE65 on John Lewis - Oct 16, 2012   

This vacuum cleaner is in a class of it's own. It is better than any mains vacuum I have ever had. It is absolutely superb. I hesitated to buy it, as I could not conceive how a battery operated vacuum could ever possibly equal a mains driven one. But not only does it equal them, it surpasses them. So as for, "fit for purpose" I would give it 110%. But then there are all the other huge advantages. too. It is so very easy to use. It is very light in weight. It cleans efficiently right up to the edges. It is easily manoeverable, and emptying is so simple, just flip the top off and empty the compressed bricks of dirt into the bin. It does not lose power at any time and maintains constant power throughout use.. It gives a few minutes warning when it needs recharging and a red light flashes on the front to warn you of this. But I can vacuum my whole house on one charge. They reckon you get 40 minutes, which I would say is about accurate. You can see when it is fully charged by the green light bars on the front. It is supposed to take 4 hours to recharge, but mine takes 1 hour. What I also like is that if it does run out of charge and you have not finished, then you can just charge it for 10 minutes, and it will give you another 10 minutes of full cleaning power to finish off the job you were doing. The power does not wax and wane, it is always at a constant level. You can see how full it is, as the dirt collection tray is transparent on the sides, so you can see how full it is. I like that you can choose to recharge it with the battery still in the vacuum cleaner, or remove the battery and charge it on the kitchen unit. It deals well with pet hair and cat litter that is deep in the carpet. It cleans extraordinarally well on every surface, and every different carpet pile. I also use it on my stairs, as it is very lightweight. An exceptionally good product which has exceeded all my expectations.

It is ok
3 Star Review   By Georgina66 on John Lewis - Oct 15, 2012   

I bought this hoover to replace one because the other ones battey died. Luckly it was still under manufacturer's guarante so that I had my money back and invested into this. I was dissapointed to find out that the battary of this product is not covered in the 5 year guarantee! Had to think hard to decide but at the and I kept it. It is not great on my floor but I am not sure if there is any good alternative on the market especially after the broken Electrolux..

Amazing!
5 Star Review   By Michelle2012 on John Lewis - Oct 9, 2012   

Have been using this for about a week now and I am very impressed. It picks up lots and if you have deep pile carpets it 'fluffs' your carpets out nicely leaving brush strokes behind. It is EXTREMELY light so very easy to carry upstairs. Impressed with how close to the edges it gets. Very easy to manoeuvre. Easy to empty and great that no expensive bags are required. As it's cordless, it means vacuuming is now completely effortless - you just detach from the power supply and you're ready to go.

5 Star Review   By daisy2520 on John Lewis - Sep 30, 2012   

This is the best thing ever, I can't believe how good it is and urge anyone to get one. I looked at this when it first came out and could kick myself for not buying it then.

Fantastic machine
5 Star Review   By Karrie51 on John Lewis - Sep 21, 2012   

This really is a fantastic machine!! So light you can run around the house with it with no effort at all. It is true that it might not go as closely into the corners as a vacuum with a hose but the sheer dexterity of the machine more than makes up for that. The only point to note is that the five year guarantee does not cover the battery life and batteries are notorious for giving out more than the machine, however I will have to wait the five years to find out. I would definitely recommend this for anyone with limited mobility, and it stores away in my wardrobe.

Gtech AirRam
5 Star Review   By PercyPig on John Lewis - Sep 16, 2012   

This product is absolutely wonderful, I have waited many years for such a lightweight, manageable vacuum such as this, I have arthritis and usually am in pain when vacuuming, this product is so easy to use, I predict all hose vacuums will become extinct in the future. I await a similar hand held device for corners etc. Very quickly delivered overall an excellent service.
