Summary: If you are a family of 4 with a pet or two, this vacuum is not for you. Granted we make alot of dirt in our kitchen/living room area I do vacuum every day. Cleaning out the filter (not only the canister) is needed after almost every use if you want full suction power. Not very easy or convenient.
Summary: Bought for a studio apartment. Works great and takes up very little valuable real estate. Added on a 2 year floor care warranty. Don't normally purchase warranties, but the vacuum alone was a great deal and even after adding the warranty I got the best price out there.
Summary: Fantastic vacuum cleaner. This works a lot better than expected. We ordered another vacuum several months ago that was specifically made for hard floors that fell apart in just a few short months. After some research into review we purchased this one.
Summary: When I bought this I thought it was so perfect for my sewing room. However beware when you try to empty the dust collector everything wraps around a cylinder and you have to pull out all the dust and for me thread. The dust and dirt fly around so much it makes your sinuses hurt for days.
Great Vacuum-If you take care of it responsibly...

Summary: Don't know what all the fuss is about with this vacuum... Yes, it requires some maintenance, just like any other vacuum on planet earth but, as one reviewer said, "When emptying the canister, unscrew the cyclonic tube" (Lefty Loosey, Righty Tighty) and clean it... as for the filter, DO NOT WASH IT!
Summary: Love this easy to use canister. I have hardwood floors and two pets. Needless to say that due to the pet hair I vac everyday. This is perfect for the job. I can do furniture and floors in a jiffy and no heavy lugging of a vacuum cleaner.
