Bought this to replace an older Bosch washer/dryer. I really notice the difference in the speed of the wash, and the cleanliness of my clothes. There are plenty of wash options to suit my needs as a single person, including quick wash and delay timed, the "dry to dry 1 hour" cycle being a real bonus for a freshen up to wear next day. The machine is exceptionally quiet whilst washing and the timer keeps you abreast of any changes the machine may make as it progresses through its cycle. It looks modern and stylish, and the controls are easy to use and understand. As I guess with most people, I'll only use a couple of the 10+ programs available, this washer dryer more than meets my needs for my everyday laundry. I'd definitely recommend this machine for smaller households and those with open-plan kitchen/lounge.
