Summary: Love this vacuum! Reminds me of my friend's dyson, but it's way cheaper and works just as well, if not better. I had a different model vacuum that had no swivel on it and this is much easier to maneuver. Took a little getting used to but I love it! My favorite feature is the 'kompressor' that compresses the dirt and packs it in tighter so you don't have to empty it as often.
Summary: Consumer Reports was right that this is a great vacuum. Very powerful and self-drive feature is nice. Dyson products have been going down in quality. Love the long cord, that is compresses dirt so you don't have to empty as frequently and light in head. Only critique is it would be nice to have automatic sensor to go from hardwood to carpet, but no big deal since there is a switch.
Summary: It's lightweight, yet sturdy, and easy to steer. It doesn't lose suction, even when the bin is full. I love that it compresses the dirt, so that you can fit more in the bin before you have to empty it. My favorite part of it is that it has a 30 foot cord, which means that I can clean my whole living room without having to stop, unplug it, and plug it in again somewhere else. Also, it does a fantastic job picking up pet hair.
Summary: This product was number 1 on consumer reports list so I bought it. When it's working it's fine but I finally got rid of it because I had to send it back to the company several times to get different things fixed. It's terrible reliability so I would NOT recommend buying it.
Summary: I mean that in a good way. I was looking at the Dyson for the longest time but never could quite pull the trigger. I decided to give this vacuum a chance because it was half the price of a Dyson and it got mostly good reviews. After using it for about a month I am quite happy with my purchase. I thought I kept my house pretty clean but this thing found a lot of dirt that was deep down in the carpet I guess. It picks up dog hair with no problem.
Summary: I am very disappointed in this vacuum. It was highly reviewed, and rated, but it has NO floor brush and no way to clean under sofas, desks, bureaus, etc. Anything with less than about 1 foot of clearance it cannot go under, and it has NO attachment that will, other than a tiny dust brush. I would not recommend this unless all you have to clean is bare carpets.
Summary: For me, a guy, to write a review for a vacuum may seem unusual. I use this unit for cleaning commercial property and must say it is the best unit I have owned. Nice features - 1) the location of the cord rewind button 2) power is great 3) side cleaning really works! 4) ease of emptying the dirt is excellent 5) reliability is second to none 6) changing to hose use is simple and easy 7) additional attachments are all that are needed 8) overall a great machine and have used...
Summary: We use this vacuum daily due to having a black lab that sheds. It keeps our carpets looking good and clean. If your looking for a vacuum that really picks up everything and deep, this is it! We would not have another brand!
