Reviewed

Some bagless vacuum cleaners create a cloud of dust when you empty them into the bin, but the LX5-2-DB has an easy-to-empty canister that AEG says minimises the mess. But is this vacuum cleaner really any easier to empty than others? And, perhaps more importantly, does it pick up enough dust in the first place? We tested it to find out; read the full review for our verdict.
