Rated 1 out of 5 by sq51 User Manual
The user manual is useless. I have not used the iron yet, and don't normally have to read up on how to use one, but since it has been a couple of years since I bought my present iron I thought it would be prudent to see if there have been any major changes in the way irons have been performing of late. However, in the manual under the heading cleaning and maintenance it said to refer to the fold out at the back of the manual. There is no folder. When going on line, it is not possible to print off the missing pages without printing the whole English section. Very bad design and surprising from a company such as Philips who are hardly new to the exporting of appliances over the world. Lets hope the iron itself is better.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Sands64 Design spoils performance
Satisfactorily irons clothes; nice pointed head good for the corners of fitted sheets; however utility of the iron is entirely spoiled by the inadequate length of the power cable. As a right handed user trying to iron from a power socket on left hand wall it was impossible to manoeuvre the iron across the board without constantly creasing the area just ironed. Took it back to the shop. Was prepared to swap for another Philips, but all corded are only 2m in length.

Rated 3 out of 5 by noopy Water level indicator is impossible to see
This Iron works very well, it provides nice amount of steam and glides across the clothes, HOWEVER the water level is impossible to see through the plastic as its dark grey/black. I filled it up to start ironing and then cannot tell when it needs topping up, apart from shaking the iron to feel if it has water in it.
So the Iron is good but I am sure the water/steam will be causing me problems until I have to get a replacement.
Such a shame that a design error has spoilt this otherwise very nice Iron.....
