Summary: Got this before I got a dog and loved it. Now that I have a dog I am obsessed with it. It is super lightweight and has gnarly suction power, so be aware if there are cords or anything on the floor you wouldn't want sucked up.
Looks like the dust spewing problem has been fixed!
21 January 2015
Summary: I bought this more than a year ago. I am reviewing it now in part because of the great customer service I got. A few months ago, I would have rated 2 stars at best because, while the suction was good (too good-- it ate my phone charger cord), the vacuum spewed dust. So much so that it would be totally coated after vacuuming one rug. Unusable, really. So I called Eureka.
Summary: Good for carpeting and floors but the hose has a tight recoil on it. If you want to use the hose you must hold on to the vacuum to use it otherwise when it is stretched the vacuum falls over because it has no heavy weight. The vacuum is so light that it works well going up steps and is easy to carry or transport. The on/off switch is also the switch used to recline the vacuum but again it's so light that it's hard to bend the vacuum down with it not moving.
Summary: This is a killer pet hair vacuum. The first time I used it I had to empty the canister twice! A couple of things that other reviewers mentioned is that the cord is too long and that the suction is too powerful. The while the power cord is long it also means that I don't have to unplug it constantly to go room to room in my house. The vacuum also has a little clip under the handle to tuck the cord away which is really helpful. This is a powerful vacuum.
Summary: Easy to put together...talk about power! Well designed, picked up EVERYTHING on one pass. I feel like my carpet is the cleanest it's ever been. Easy to empty. So glad that we didn't spend $200-$300 on the original one we were looking at. Completely worth it!

Summary: The Vacuum has great suction and I like the small size but it is very cheaply made and it fell apart every time I used it so I had to return it. The clip that should hold the handle in place does not work.
Summary: JUNK. Less than a year after purchase the suction is almost gone and the “PET power paw” has about the same strength as a newborn kitten. The only metal you get with this substandard device is the screws that hold it together and what’s inside the insulated power cord. The stem does not have a “quick release” feature for the cord and the supports/brackets for the hose and tools no longer secure these items to the stem.

Summary: This is a piece of CRAP, it does not seal so it blows dust everywhere, when you fight with it to get it to seal a little it does suck, but it stays dusty, trying to clean the canister and all parts you are so dirty, ie hands cloths floor. Its cheap and its a cheap piece of crap. you would get better enjoyment by throwing $50.00 into the wind, yes I called eureka and told them it needs a rubber seal around the connection, well I should have just beat my head into the...
Summary: Exactly what I was looking for. I just moved again into a carpeted apartment from hardwood floors and was in need of an inexpensive and efficient pet vacuum. As a pet owner of two long haired cats and a dog that sheds constantly I needed something that would really "suck". I was looking into Dyson's and couldn't put out the money and honestly don't have enough space to justify one currently. This little vac does the trick.
Excerpt: The only con about this product is that it looks cheap. Aside from that if you are a pet owner, this is a really great product. It's powerful, cleans well, does all the dirty work. It's great on my stairs, carpets - although I haven't tried it on my hardwood floors yet. It is very heavy, but the extra long cord provides me enough length for two staircases.
Pros: Easy To Empty, Easy to Use, Efficient, Long Power Cord, Powerful/Good Suction
