Summary: I needed to buy an inexpensive vacuum to get me by until our other vacuum was done being repaired. I put the vacuum together (very easy to do) and turned it on. The sucking power is amazing. It is small enough to get under furniture and between furniture. I look forward to vacuuming now- this vacuum is that good. I no longer want my more expensive vacuum repaired. I'll be using the Eureka from now on.
Summary: I have bought two of these vacs both from different company's. In both cases the belt has snapped within a matter of minutes of normal use. I have purchased replacement belts and so far they are holding up. Besides the belt issue, I like the machine performance and the light weight.
Summary: i opened the box to find at least a dozen different parts as well as a couple of loose screws that needed attaching ... i took the pieces out of the box which were like most items that have to be assembled which was the quality of a child's toy. i immediately put it back in the box for a return - a cheap product and a ridiculous expectation that a vacuum cleaner has to be assembled by the consumer - disappointment entirely.
