Summary: I purchased this vacuum because I needed a new one and consumer reports rated it really well. Dyson didn't even make the cut. It's very light and has amazing suction. I would've given it a 5 but I've only owned it a week.
Summary: Bought this vacuum because of the good reviews and I have to agree with them! Excellent suction, very light-weight, easy to set-up and use. Almost too much suction when it comes to going over small and large rugs in the house, but I won't complain! Have a suction off button that can be used for those and hard floor surfaces, but doesn't pick up quite as well. Has long extention tubing for keeping the vacuum in one place and really stretching to get the small stuff.
Summary: Though only owning a week, this vacuum has performed better than what I expected. The length of the hose and cord is a bonus on this vacuum. I definitely would recommend to family and friends.
