Summary: I have been have automatic cord rewined bagless eureca vacuum cleaner about 3 years. I love this part but when I need to empty dust, it is really hard to apart. I wish they made it easy to open. I like to say it is poor made item. One more thing, It is inconvenient to move around cord to plug and unplug to finish cleaning. Longer cord recommand.
Summary: This vacuum lasted me exactly two years. It was an 'upgrade' over a cheaper Eureka that had lasted 5 years and which I was very pleased with. I liked it at first, but after some time found it really disappointing. Cons: the plug pulled out of outlets REALLY easily - like, it would just fall out sometimes even with NO tension on the cord. That got really annoying over time.
Summary: I've had this vacuum cleaner for a little while now. The first time I used it, it pulled quite a lot of things from the carpeted floor, down to micro-dust. If you are allergic to dust, make sure you don a mask before you empty the canister and clean the filter. Eureka also includes an extra belt with it.
Summary: After having this just over a month the on/off switch started working erratically. It's fine when I first start it, but once it warms up I have to press it repeatedly to engage. The dust/dirt cup doesn't always open when I press the lever. The cord sometimes retracts for no reason. This unit does a good job of cleaning, but it comes with only a ONE year warranty. One of the worst of all major manufacturers.
Summary: I bought this vacuum after reading the reviews and I really like it. It did pick up a lot more then my other Eureka vacuum, (which still work, but we took it upstate) and it is easier to empty out. It is slighty heavier, but the difference is so small and the fact that it cleans so much better, it is worth it.
Summary: Okay.... so I just received my vacuum today (1 hr ago), put it together in 10 minutes (so easy), and vacuumed up after my 11 month old. AMAZING. I was just cleaning a 3x3 area where he dump his bag of goldfish and I have an accumulation of dust and dirt that is about 2 inches thick in the trap. Granted this is my first use, but I still gave it 5 stars. The other reviews that stated that they felt as though they lived in filth prior to using this were dead on.
Summary: So I was kind of skeptical when the package arrived because the vacuum looks small. It is small, but it's got power! The cord is short as some of the reviews I read had said. It's a small price to pay for the performances though. Great Vacuum! I have 2 cats and a boyfriend, so I get plenty of dirt, hair, dander and crumbs on the carpet and sofas. As an experiment I vacuumed with my old vacuum and then this new one right afterwards. Yuck!
Summary: This is an update. I previously gave this vacuum 5 stars, and I stand by my comments that it's fairly quiet and picks up more dirt than you ever dreamed was in your house. Where I'm having second thoughts is in the emptying of the container and shaking out the pleated filter which gets jammed up with fine particles of dust and dirt. To clean this filter is a very messy endeavor.
