I gave it three stars because it seems like a pretty good machine but is just too small ...

Summary: This machine provides plenty of suction and is much quieter than the Dirt Devil machine it replaces. The cord is so short that I use 4 electrical outlets instead of 2 to do my house. The cleaning head is narrower than my previous machine. Also my previous machine had one replaceable filter, this machine has 2 washable filters. All in all this machine seems made for small apartments/houses.
Summary: you get what you pay for. to empty the canister is so messy . the dust bunnies and anything it picks up gets caught inside the canister so how do you get it out? your hands get pretty dirty!! I get angry just thinking about it!! JUNK!!
Absolutely Great Product, and it arrived from this vendor faster than projected.

Summary: Other people complained that the vacuum over-heated. I never experienced that problem. Common sense though tells you to adjust the height level, based on the type of surface you are using it on. I would assume this, and any other vacuum would overheat if the height level were not adjusted. I gave my old dirt devil to my neighbor since she needed something good and reliable.
this vacuum is fantastic, it gets more dirt than my older vacuum ...

Summary: Works amazingly. I have two dogs, this vacuum is fantastic, it gets more dirt than my older vacuum and my floor always looks better after using it. Suction is fantastic. Got her in a timely, quick manner and in good condition. Easy to assemble, as well!
This is the third one I've bought for family members

Summary: And it still rocks though I think with the comparison between this new one and the older 2 1/2 one we bought a while back it may be losing some suction though thanks to the see through holding basket at least I know for a fact it's still sucking up plenty of trash even if it's not as strong as when it was brand new. Great product for fantastic price.
Summary: As much vacuum as your likely to need. I have had this for a long time and it does the same thing for 93 dollars as the ones costing over a thousand. It looks nice too for whatever that matters too you. It's way flipping loud but find a vacuum that isn't. I might pay more money for a quiet one that worked but it would have to be a LOT quiter and I don't think they make one. Clue me in if someone does.
Summary: This is a WONDERFUL vacuum with a LOT of suction power and I love how easy it is to dump and how great it is at picking up pet hear. Recently though I hit the bottom of it on my wood stairs and broke off the little adjustable floor wheel thing. Now it overheats and turns off. Thinking it is time for a new one and I loved mine so much I am seriously considering getting another one. The pet hair attachment it comes with works good but NOT the best.
Summary: Love love love this vacuum for Pet hair. A new realize just what the old vacuum wasn't picking up. I have a shedding wool carpet which used to take me an hour. Now I can get it in literally three minutes clean. Headlight is useless. It doesn't really matter it's such a good vacuum.
Summary: This is a cheap vacuum and you get what you pay for. When you want to use the upholstery brush and detach the hose, there is no shut off switch for the beater bar on the bottom!! SO you are wearing a hole in your carpet as you vacuum a chair. I called and they suggested laying it on its side. Very half a**.
