Summary: This vacuum is light weight and has excellent suction. But if you want one with on board attachments its not for you. Although it comes with the small canister with attachments there's no place to store them. But for me I don't use attachments every time I sweep.
Summary: I've had enough of the messy bagless and went back to bagged. This vacuum has more cleaning power than the Electrolux "premium" vacuum it replaced. We have a spot at the bottom of a stairway that had matted down and we were considering replacing. This vac made this carpeting stand up again like it had ten years ago.
Summary: This vacuum has good suction. For a "self propelled", it goes forward pretty good but does not seem to be self propelled pulling backward. If you only had to go forward, it would be OK. The canister vac had good suction also but I found it too heavy to carry around on my shoulder. The hose is too short to leave on the ground.
Summary: Did a lot of research online and with Consumer Reports and decided to go with this vac, mainly because if it's good ratings but also because it was lightweight. Haven't used the included canister vac yet but I'm sure it's helpful for stairs. Upright is very simple to operate/push. My only complaint is the Q-type vac bags you need to use for the upright are really difficult to find.
Summary: It does a great job of getting dirt from my rugs. Light weight and easy to manipulate around furniture. The price is very reasonable. I found the small canister to be easy to use and efficient to use on the car mats.
Summary: This is an excellent lightweight vacuum, and also comes with the bonus small canister vacuum for steps. We researched it before buying and it was top rated by a consumer magazine. We are very happy with the purchase and WalMart had the lowest price we could find anywhere. It has great suction and gets everything out of the corners on our hardwood floors. It is also great on carpets.
