Summary: While the stated attributes of being light weight and having variable vacuum settings are accurate, what is not mentioned is that those benefits provide no value on thick pile carpets. On tightly woven carpets and tiles, the performance is fine.
Summary: I rate this vacuum as a cheep nock off of the Oreck. And I returned that vacuum in a day. The little vacuum with the tools is useless. It flies all over the place when you are trying to use it. The vacuum itself isn't completely useless, it does get up against the walls.
Summary: This vacuum is beautiful and lightweight. Because it's so light, I wondered if it could clean well, but it did, and it was very maneuverable. I was very pleased. Then, a few months later it became hard to push across my developer-grade carpeting (so about as thin as it can get and still be called...
Summary: I was most disappointed by this vacuum. My old Hoover canister vacuum broke and I was hoping this might be a good replacement as the new canister model is very cheaply designed. The suction on the upright worked well on carpeting, but it just gobbled my area rugs.
Pros: upright had good suction
Cons: mobile canister had poor suction, mobile canister had tiny bag, attachments fell off
Summary: Nice that it adjusts from carpet to hard floor all by itself, but watch out if you have area rugs. Since there is no manual floor height adjustment, I find it grabs the edges no matter how fast I try to go over them and chews up my area rugs even on the low setting.
