Summary: Couldn't believe how much dirt it got out of my carpet and a ton of pet hair too...easy to fill and empty...took my about an hour to do my living room which I thought was really fast...love it!!!
Summary: I think the cleaner does a good job and is a good value. It is really hard for me to say if it should be rated higher than good as my carpets are 7 years old and have had a lot of wear and tear. I also have 3 dogs that add to the abuse. But it did clean my carpets and I don't think any machine could bring it back any more than this one did.
