Summary: This vacuum was inexpensive and not built for a lifetime, but I have had many hoovers and do expect at least a couple of years. Just being realistic. It is easy to use. If someone, like me, is a detail vacuumer, edge cleans, and likes to get every nook and cranny like I do, then this is the vacuum for you.
Summary: Discounted hoover canister vacuum that was USED? Even that's beneath you Walmart. Ordered this item previously and was told it was 'lost or damaged. The second time I ordered, iit arrived in a box that clearly was damaged. The first piece we took out of the box was definitely used. Never again, Walmart. You can't treat customers like that and expect repeat business.
Summary: I am very pleased with may new vac. I love the furniture brush roller attachment. Does a great job picking up pet hair. Also, I am pleased with the power of the unit. It is just as good as my $1,500 Rainbow vac and I don't have to deal with the water.
Summary: I am just about to throw a $250 vacuum in the trash. This machine cannot possibly have more than 25 hours on it. I had to bring it for service after the 1st use. I was told it simply needed a belt. The problem is, this vacuum just isn't powerful enough. I have hardwood floors with oriental area rugs, and not high quality thick ones, mind you. We have replaced the belt more than 5 times and my husband has had to replace the fuse a few times too. Piece of JUNK.
Summary: Bought this only because only Kenmore service centers can work on Kenmore vacuums. I should have just gotten my 6 year old Kenmore vacuum fixed. This vacuum didn't last a single year. If there is worse customer service than Hoover I have not yet experienced it. If you want a disposable vacuum then this is for you.
Summary: Would love to comment on the vacuum but after two tries, we couldn't get one delivered to the local Wal-Mart without the packaging being torn and broken handle parts sticking out-packaging was damaged in the exact same place...twice! We'll try Sears.
Summary: I bought this vacuum largely based on positive reviews in Consumer Reports. What a disappointment. I agree with the all the other negative comments I have read here. The attachments are of cheap plastic and some don't stay on well. (There is one small attachment that has two parts which seem to be in constant divorce proceedings.) The light in the power nozzle stopped working the second time I used the vacuum. The hose is cheap and gets kinked easily.
Summary: We've experienced the exact same thing as a lot of other posters - this is the worst vacuum that I've ever purchased. The handle broke twice from the cheap plastic and then something happened with the electricals. All of this within 6 months. My wife only weighs 100lbs and we live in a 1200sqft condo, she might use it every other week but that's all.
Summary: I just ordered this vacuum after a lot of research. I was tired of the baggless upright that I have been getting the past couple of years. Anyway, this vacuum is such a pleasure! First of all, I have a "Marley" dog who is a shedding machine. I hate dog fur more than anything, and I needed a vacuum that would pick up a Labrador Retrievers hair. They are like hairs sticking to velcro, and no other vacuum could even touch the hairs on my carpet.
