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

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

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.
Potentially a good vacuum, but too much maintainence....

Summary: The Uno bagless has nice features, like the built in duster. But the design flaw is in how it captures debris. There's more to getting this vacuum working properly than simply washing out the foam filter and dumping out the collection canister.
Summary: You know, I could sit here all day and tell you how bad it is, at what it's suppose to be good at - vacuuming, but it's sucks! No pun intended. Well really, it doesn't suck, and that's the problem.
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.
