Best Vacuum by far!

Leslie Ferrer, Amazon
25 April 2011
  • 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.

The negative review are right!!!

  • 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.

Best Yet

Gerard R. Mcmullen, Amazon

  • 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: An excellent vacuum that's very powerful yet lightweight and easy to use and is durable.
  • Pros: powerful suction, lightweight, great bristles that reach into cracks and crevices to get the dust
  • Cons: upholstery/stair tool, hardwood floor tool don't store on board, hose needs to be 2 feet longer

very disappointed

richb, Amazon
14 September 2010
  • 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.

Electrolux EL 7020B OXY3

G. J. Fruit, Amazon
15 June 2010
  • 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.

Most User Friendly

  • 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!

Good, not great

A. C. Goerwitz "Happy Lovejoy", Amazon
28 March 2010
  • 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.

Brendas thoughts

Brenda Kapalczynski, Amazon
21 March 2010
  • 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.
