Excerpt: I was very excited to find this! All seemed well until I went to use it and the brush doesn't spin so I have to bring it into the store to see if they will give me a new one. What a hassle. Disapointing I should have just bought a Dyson
Summary: Cannot get undamaged or working vacuum after two attempts. Comes in unmarked, plain box without any pictures that provides too little protection during shipping. As it is good rating, I will go buy elsewhere. Extremely disappointed, as this order was not at all in line with Amazon's usual quality.
Summary: After purchasing this vacuum cleaner, I did not open immediately. Once I did use it, I found the suction so strong, I could hardly push it across the carpet. It works fine on floors, but not carpet. And I am not the problem. It sometimes even lifts the carpet up. I think it could ruin your carpet.
Summary: While the vacuum is light and has good suction, I plan to return it. The first day it was used, the hose came unglued/broke and constantly twists out of the handle when using the attachments. It's terrible. I'm incredibly dissppointed with this vacuum.
Summary: I was pleased when I got this vacuum. It's easy to put together, has a nice long cord, and is MUCH less expensive than a Dyson. But... I have had it for 4 months now, and don't have a lot of carpet, so it's pretty lightly used.
Great Vacuum Suction But Lower Attachment Hose Always Breaks
Noah's Ark, Amazon
19 April 2013
Summary: The design of the motor, canister, and floor brush are great and really clean very well. However this model has a manufacturing defect in the lower hose collar that is used to disconnect the main hose from the floor brush when attachments are used.
Summary: I bought this vacuum in December. After two uses the hose broke and I had to find a store that could repair the hose. Less than 3 months later the hose has once again torn off and rendered the vacuum useless. At the service center, they said they see this same problem all the time.
Summary: I hadn't used the handheld suction yet and things were going fine. Finally put the box out for recycling. Then I pulled out the tube and connected it properly and went to suck up some crumbs behind a couch. The tube just came right out of the unit and I could see where it had been cheaply glued in.
Summary: This machine broke on the FIRST use!!!! I should have read all of the negative reviews first instead of counting on the stars it's been given (boo to those who rated it 5 stars after receiving it free!!!!). The hose detached from the vacuum, just like all the other negative reviewers said.
