Summary: Not the insane suction I was expecting but definitely the best vacuum I have owned. I had to call tech support to figure out why the brushes stopped working. There's a little red reset button that did the trick.
Excerpt: I bought this vacuum at Target when our out dated one broke. It was a very expensive vacuum but I bought it in hopes that it would be one that would last for awhile. It has very good suction and moves around furniture very easily with little effort.
Excerpt: This vacuum is definitely worth the money as long as you keep it maintained. For the price, you get a long lasting vacuum that does have good suction and the ball design is a great help for quick, thorough cleaning. It is much easier to maneuver, particularly around furniture.
Excerpt: This vacuum is so helpful. It's lightweight and powerful. The only reason why I don't give it a 5 is the canister that traps the dirty is a bit difficult to empty. It creates a little bit of a mess if you don't do it just right.
Excerpt: I got this vacuum as a present from my husband. I have a very old pull with you type of vacuum and he wanted to get me something nice. This vacuum when we purchased it was around $350.00. We needed something that could do rugs and hardwood floors as we have both.
Summary: If you are looking for a portable vacuum to do small jobs this is a great vacuum. Comments about the dirt container being too small are right on. Other than that it is fine. I'm sure I'll get a lot of good years out of it.
