Still going strong after 6 years

Adam and Liz Orton, Amazon
3 July 2013
  • Summary: I got this vacuum as a wedding gift 6 and a half years ago. I always knew how to empty the bin and clean/replace the filters, but it wasn't until I took the time to read the manual and change the belt last year that I realized how well it still worked. When it's maintained properly, this vacuum cleans very well. I just ordered new belts and filters and I don't foresee buying a new vacuum any time soon!

  • Summary: Pros: -Inexpensive -Still works great (5 years later) -Powerful suction -Easy to clean filters for reuse (lower maintenance cost) -Power Paw attachment is very useful Cons: -Cord storage is cramped -Dustbin fills quickly (may be a good sign) and can cause problems (explained below) -Extension wand falls off the side easily I have found several reviews of people complaining that this vacuum loses suction quickly.

Eureka 2999dvz uno as advertized

Brutikus Maximus "Info maven", Amazon
5 April 2010
  • Summary: This vacuum cleaner seems as advertized. I have a dog who is a moderate shedder, but nevertheless still sheds. I have very light color carpets and he is a white dog. I'd thought my old cleaner was good, boy was i wrong. The brush works as expected no complaints there. It still early on but so far so good.

The worst vacuum cleaner!

K. Ardelian, Amazon
4 April 2010
  • Summary: At first this vacuum is fantastic. The suction is great and it vacuums perfectly. Then it starts clogging...and as your cleaning out the vacuum you realize that the floor is filled with the debris from the vacuum again. So...you vacuum the floor again and see that it's leaving carpet fiber behind. So...you call Eureka, they tell you what to do and the vacuum works like a dream again. Then, the problems start all over again..and again...and again.

Poor Excuse for a Vacuum!

J. A. Hamilton "race20fan", Amazon
10 March 2010
  • Summary: This was by far the worst vacuum I have ever used EVER! The last time I used it and found that it AGAIN was not working properly I wanted to sit down and cry. I would spend more time trying to figure out what was wrong with it then I would actually vacuuming! Please learn from my mistake and run away from this lemon of a vacuum!!!

Awesome Vacuum Cleaner

Marie Shakoor "sweetknees1964", Amazon
12 February 2010
  • Summary: This vacuum cleaner is the most powerful vacuum I have ever used. It is self propelled and removed stuff from my carpet that I didn't even know was there, like Carpet Fresh, that I have never used. The claw zips through and picks up pet hair like you would believe. This is one of the best investments I have ever made.

Keep in mind that people like complaining more than anything else while online

Jeremy Jones "linkdude64", Amazon
4 February 2010
  • Summary: The only reason I'm leaving this review is because the roller on this vacuum model just broke down to a bad bearing... ...after 6 years of completely problem-free performance. Damn fine vacuum. Going to buy a new roller assembly, belt, and call it a day.

Has some issues but overall I like it

E. A. Stafford "a.k.a Penny Lizer", Amazon
21 January 2010
  • Summary: There does seem to be more maintenance needed with this vacuum over others that I have owned (i.e. replacing the belt more often than not, cleaning filters each use, pet hair doing a number on the roller) but for the price I paid for it on sale I would buy it again. It does have wonderful suction if you are avid about cleaning the filters before each use as I do.

The good reviews must be from new users, I was fooled at first too!

knkpatrick, Amazon
6 January 2010
  • Summary: We first got the Uno and loved it...it really picked up great, UNTIL it got to be a few months old, and the hardward started breaking. Everytime we used it something broke. The frist time we thought we just got a lemon when it broke right after the warrenty was out. The belt melted to the roller and because it melted we could not just replace the melted part. We thought it was just a freaky malfunction since it picked up so well, so we bought a second one.
