Summary: The beater continuously jams. It whines as well. Not worth the aggravation and the plastic locking device on one side doesn't close completely now. I am going to have to buy another vacuum cleaner and I only used this 6 times!!!
I was kinda worried about buying a vacuum online but glad I did.

Summary: I have hard wood and tile and rugs that are low pile and high pile so a mixture of everything and so far its working pretty well and the suction is great. This is my first canister vac and I'm happy to make the switch.
Summary: I have a one-bedroom apartment. From the moment I turned it on it turned itself off with in five minutes. Useless. I have hardwood floors and very limited carpeting, and I know how vacuums work. This one doesn't. To the trash it goes.
Summary: I vacuum at least twice a week. I have two dogs (one who profusely sheds), and I've become a bit OC as I get older. I use a Verilux CleanWave and love it. My biggest complaint, however, is that it is very heavy and difficult to carry and push through the house.
Summary: I had been looking for something small but powerful to vacuum my hardwood floors and also the pet hair on the furniture and something that I could vacuum under the bed with. This is a great little vacuum for all that I was looking for. I also use an upright to vacuum my carpeted rooms.
