Summary: Just last week, my Dyson died :/ It was the original one and lasted pretty long so I couldn't complain, but it was time to move on. I didn't want another Dyson because I noticed that the brush roll at the bottom of it only had one suction tube all the way to the right of the entire bottom. So basically, whatever the brush roll would pick up on the other side, would just get thrown back out. Not a very good feature.
Summary: I wanted the negative reviews to be wrong. This vacuum has a great design...super quiet, compact, telescoping wand, pivot head for GREAT maneuvarability, retracting plug, controls at your fingertips and even some tools on the wand. BUT AFTER ONLY THE FOURTH USE, THE POWERHEAD WAS SHORTING OUT IF I FULLY EXTENDED THE HOSE!! Obviously a loose connection somewhere, but I'm not about to get wrapped up in repairs after only a week of use.
Summary: I have owned a Miele canister and Kirby upright, and currently own two Kenmore canister vacuums. The Electrolux is by far the best of all of them. The Miele is lightweight and powerful, but the powerhead uses the suction from the vacuum to operate the powerbrush. This makes it good for low and medium pile carpet, but the powerhead on the Electrolux significantly outcleans it.
Summary: Bought this vacuum from amazon five months ago, it's already died. Really expected more from electrolux - I'd never buy another one. The bag inside is awfully small, so it really doesn't hold much. I've got 2 cats, and it did a fair job of cleaning, but the vacuum head is pretty large and bulky and it wasn't anywhere near as good as the miele that it replaced, which managed to last for 6 years. Awfully disappointed in this vacuum.
Summary: I purchased the Electrolux EL 7020B Oxy3 canister vacuum several months ago, and have been very pleased with its performance so far. My family had Electrolux vacuums when I was growing up, so I was familiar with the Electrolux quality in vacuums. I realize, however, that the current Electrolux company has changed hands over the years and is not the original Electrolux company.
Summary: This is the best vacuum I have owned, it's lightweight, easy to operate and has all the attachments that are needed on hand. I was even able to assemble it out of the box without reading instructions! I have mostly carpeting throughout my house and the carpet attachment easily vacuums underneath sofas and buffets. It's also terrific on my vinyl floors and the retractable cord makes it easy to put away. Great job Electrolux!
Summary: Five years ago I purchased a similar model (an O2), and this one is better, but still has flaws. The O2 had a flimsy wand. This one isn't as flimsy, though only time will tell whether it will hold up. The O2's cord could have been a few feet longer, and the O3's cord isn't better, but it's still longer than many other vacuums' cords. The O2 was overall a simpler unit. This one has too many buttons that I keep accidentally pressing on the wand handle.
Summary: I wanted a strong Vac that is why I choose the canister electrolux. Is very light weight and not very loud. It does seem to shut down while using it. The attachments are ok could be better. While moving around the canister gets stuck on the cord. I wish I had tryed it out in a store first even thou it has so so power it won't pick up the carpet pile very well. I had inhouse Vac for years then moved and new house wasn't plumbed for in house and was forced to buy Vac.
Summary: I have to say, I really didn't know how well my vacuum was not working until I took a big leap and bought this vaccuum. I consider myself a pretty clean person, thoroughly cleaning the house about once per week. I have always had an upright, but since I have a 2 story looked into the canister. This vaccuum is so quiet and easy to carry.
