Summary: I bought this for my mom and it is GREAT...she loves how light it is and how well and easy it is to get all the cat hair up, especially from the drapes. She's older and had a bad health scare and was unable to use her bulky-heavy vacuum she had (it weighs 30 lbs. at least). She couldn't get over how light it is and she loves that it's bag less too. I have already recommended it to every pet owner I know and so has my mom.
Summary: I love this vacuum. I have 5 cats and a dog, 3 with long hair, and it gets all the hair. I have all hard floors except for my bedroom. I will empty the bin and use it in my bedroom and the filter will be filled with hair, pet and HUMAN. The only draw back is the bin is difficult to open from the top and is a little difficult to empty without making a mess. Also it pushes air out from the top, so when I vacuum around my fridge it blows all the papers off.
Summary: I bought this vacuum as I'd owned a Eureka Optima (green) vacuum for years and loved it, so I know how the vacuum is supposed to work. Don't waste your money on this one. The rug vacuum had almost no suction. The hose had great suction but that for the rug was picking up almost nothing. The vent in the front was blowing out so much air that it blew dirt/hair everywhere. Then the "check brush" light came on. The brush was working fine and did not need cleaning.
