Summary: Works great and I have not had any issues with it. I've had it for about a year now. Definitely recommend for smaller locations/places. I have a one bedroom apartment and I have to empty and clean the filters after pretty much every vacuum. Granted I only vacuum every couple of weeks. I also have a cat and it has no trouble picking up the cat hair that I couldn't even see prior to using it. I haven't really used the attachments but they all seem functional.
Summary: It is light so that it will topple when using the extension if you are not careful. That being said, it works wonderfully. I love the ease of emptying, the ease of cleaning the filter and the powerful suction. It is not unusually loud either. I do not care whether or not it can adjust to carpet/floor height because my floors are all the same height with a very low carpet. I took off a star for that reason.
Summary: The vacuum has worked well and has good suction. My only complaint is that the handle to hold the cord has broken several times (after gluing it back on), because it's just not protected and gets bonked when vacuuming. Other than that this is a good vacuum.
Summary: The vacuum was very easy to assemble and is very easy to use. I have been using it for a while and haven't run into any issues. One downside to the vacuum is the cord is not retractable, but I think overall it is a good buy for the price.
Summary: This works great. However I needed to replace the belt after 6 weeks. I only use this for 3 area rugs, so it's not like I am using it constantly. It is great at picking up dog hair and small particles like dirt, so I would recommend it.
I use this only in one small bedroom and it's great for that.

Summary: I only use this vacuum in one small room (to avoid making my bedroom smell like dogs every time I use it by vacuuming other parts of the apartment with it too) but I have used it daily for about two months or more now and I am very happy with it. It is easy to disassemble and clean and does a good job.
Summary: This vacuum cleaner has good suction, and has a wide base which makes for less time in cleaning. However, the point where the tool attachment fixes on to the lower pipe is not air tight, and dust leaks out while vacuuming. I find myself having to use the tool to clean out the dust from the base. If you can look past this problem, it's a good machine for the price.
Summary: I first purchased a bagless vacuum 12 years ago and hated it. The dust seemed to get everywhere but inside the cup. My wife has been complaining about our 10-year-old bag vacuum lately though, so I figured I'd give it a shot. First off, I was surprised at how well the CleanView Helix actually cleaned. The volume of the cup is easy to see from the outside of the vacuum, so it was easy to tell when we were full and time to empty and start over.
