I liked it when it worked

bensmom, Amazon
5 January 2012
  • Summary: We bought this vacuum for the infamous $99 price everyone else seems to have bought it for. I really liked it when it worked. The broad head rocked as I felt I could cover a lot of ground with one sweep. I liked the power and suction. It clogged a couple times, but was fairly easy to clean. I loved the telescoping wand and long hose. Unfortunately the lifetime filter on mine did not clean itself like advertised and I have to get a new one.

  • Summary: Easy to use, surprisingly nimble for it's size. Lot's of usable features for a multi-purpose unit. An absolute bargain for less than $99.00 at Home Depot.

THE MOST UNIQUE AND USABLE VACUUM EVER INVENTED...LIKE THE EDSEL, WAS AHEAD OF IT'S TIME

bclayman "appliance buff", Amazon
20 December 2010
  • Summary: THE FOLLOWING REVIEW WAS WRITTEN 5/21/07 ABOUT THE U9145-900 "Z 700" MODEL AND I STILL FEEL THE SAME WAY! IN FACT, I JUST BOUGHT A U9125-900 "Z 400" A FEW WEEKS AGO AND WILL KEEP THAT ONE UNTIL I NEED IT IN THE FUTURE. I have been an appliance buff since I was a kid. I bought my Mom the top of the line Hoover Celebrity Canister vacuum back in the early 80s and used it often.

Couldn't live without it

Roxanne M, Amazon
14 June 2010
  • Summary: My fiance and I have had this for about 3 years, and I think it's wonderful. It has a few cons, but the pros blow them away, at least for me. PROS: ~ The suction feels good and strong; I've never had a problem with it leaving anything behind. The head is nice and wide, and it's also flat enough to go under some furniture. ~ The canister is easy to remove, empty, and replace.

interesting, powerful, somewhat noisy, heavy, wierd, fragile

Amazon Customer, Amazon
30 May 2010
  • Summary: While noisy, it's less noisy than the one it replaced. It's also odd beyond belief. At first, it was always folding up on me, leading to frustration bordering on rage. It doesn't do that any more; perhaps I was subconsciously trained. Why was it designed to fold up anyway? I've never actually wanted to do that. At the moment the floor head isn't picking up anything even though I've disassembled it and cleaned it.

Not too good!!

RJLed, Amazon

  • Summary: The bucket is too small and make a mess every time we empty it. The screen in the bucket breaks easily and we've had to special order it twice (takes three weeks to arrive). Don't waste your money!!!

Too heavy

L. Mcrae "LAM", Amazon
30 December 2008
  • Summary: We bought this vacuum about 2 years ago and rarely use it. The vacuum is way too heavy...and we're in relatively good shape. You will never want to carry it up or down stairs. As of today, the vacuum stopped sucking things up...so now I have a heavy vacuum that doesn't work. I would not recommend this vacuum.

Not worth it AT ALL

Kim, Amazon
2 December 2008
  • Summary: I also purchased this for the low $99 price. As the saying goes, "you get what you pay for" and with a price of $199... you get much less. Let me start by saying: It doesn't vacuum any better than any other same price vacuum I have ever used or owned. The cons: 1. This thing weighs a TON. Put your money into a self-propelled. Lugging around that much weight makes the chore of vacuuming that much more horrific.
