Summary: We researched vacuums pretty thoroughly, or so we thought. Not even two years after purchasing the LG Kompressor, it needs a $250.00 repair job for a faulty powerhead electrical malfunction. Evidently, the piece that has given out is not available to purchase separately, the whole wand/head must be replaced. Forget it. Keep away from this one!
Summary: Lacking in suction power. Odd angles for the swivel head. The product was returned and replaced with the Dyson canister. The Dyson is a much better product and value. Both were equally priced.
Summary: Do not waste your money. I bought this Vacuum in March and it rarely works, if ever. Something is wrong with the electrical side of things as it will not keep power to the head. It is heavy & cheaply made. Would not recommend this vacuum.
Summary: I bought this unit to vacuum a 2200 square foot home with about 35% of the floor surfaces being carpet and the rest tile. The unit had good suction and is relatively light weight. After about four months after purchase the problems started. The canister has a power cord which you plug into the wall socket then you turn the unit on/off from the buttons on the control handle.
Summary: I was so excited about this vacuum, consumer reports rated it very highly and I've been wanting a vacuum with a little extra power to pick up pet hair. After plugging it in and running it over 2 square feet of carpet (if that) in literally 30 seconds it shut off and displayed the 'empty canister' light. The amount of dust it had picked up was surprising but in no way was the canister in need of emptying.
Summary: Cleans well. Poor quality overall. LG will not send a replacement but you get to pay good money for a brand new item only to be without it so they can decide if they want to replace or fix it. Going on second time back. To me that is lame.
Summary: Although my floors are all tile, I do have some area rugs. The suction of the LG is amazing and almost devoured a small area rug. I am OCD about my home and if this vacuum keeps up the great work, I will be able to honestly say it beats my Dyson (when it was new).
Summary: we researched the vacuum, plus our son bought one, and loves it. I have a dog with fairly long white fur. I was having to get on hands and knees and use just the nozzle of other vacuum and work at it for a half hour to get up. And do this again in a couple days. My LG gets all of it up in a couple swipes, and takes just a couple minutes. I have all tile with just the one large area rug. So this cannister is the best. And love the dirt cup.
Broke down after 10 months of less than average usage

Summary: Yeah. $325+ and it breaks down - the switch in the handle. It was hardly used as I have 3 other vacuums. Will continue to buy Dyson from now on - much more reliable. Anyway, I took it to a repair shop assuming I was out of luck with the warranty. They have no access to parts they say, after 2 weeks. Has to be returned to LG only. Fortunately it's still under warranty. I then wait 2 weeks for a box and have all the hassle of shipping it back......nice....
