Summary: After 40 years of cleaning, I thought I had seen the best and worst of vacuums. For what is charged, this is the worst vacuum I have ever seen! If this were a new car purchase, I would have no problem returning it under the Florida "Lemon Law".
Summary: This vacuum looks nice, the only nice thing I can say about it. It weighs 30 lbs. Pretty heavy for taking it up and down stairs and no easy way to carry it. The bags don't hold very much. The bags have to be changed out every couple a weeks.
Summary: I bought this vacuum because of it's name but, sadly, this Electrolux is a hugh disappointment. The electronic height adjuster is stuck on the high settings (after only 6 month) so I can not vacuum my carpets. The manufacturer replaced it twice and after the third break would not help me.
Summary: I have owned this vacuum for 8 years and have not had any electronic/mechanical problem. It is cumbersome to do stairs but all vacuums are. The vacuum fell down a flight of stairs and other than the carry handle breaking, the vacuum still works fine.
Summary: After a lengthy research phase, I decided to go with the Electrolux Oxygen. I did so for a number of reasons: - I've used bagless vacuums in the past and one thing was constant: there would be particulates in the air that the bagless vacs could not contain.
Summary: i agree with these people that have written about this waste of money. Hardly used except as a vacuum for upholstery. Wheels have broken twice. Monitor lights dont work. Very very upset that this machine cost me 400 dollars to buy and another 150 to repair at different times.
Summary: We had two mid-range Kenmore canister vacs prior to this. The Electrolux Oxygen (EL6988E) is many ways better and many ways worse. Check out the list for what matters most to you. Prices bounce around. Low tide for this model is about 325 delivered.
