Summary: the vacuum felt like a toy... the brush for the carpet was significantly smaller than the one on my "old" vacuum; Yes it is light-weight... but just didn't feel like it would last for an extended period of time. The hose felt "flimsy" compared to my "old" vacuum... I just didn't like it.
Good vacuum, annoying handling and cord too short.

Summary: I have no complaints about the the actual vacuum function, it works great. It picks everything up, carpet and hardwood flooring. The flex joint between the brush head and wand is good enough to get beneath the lowest furniture. The whole thing is sturdily constructed.
Summary: I have had a Kenmore for three years and it was and still is listed as a top vacuum by Consumer Reports. But I found that it lost suction and was extremely hard to push after a few months even though it has been serviced several times. So I was looking for something better and willing to pay more.
Summary: I was skeptical about dropping a significant amount of money on a vacuum. The hose on the central vacuum system was destroying my walls and I wasn't all that crazy about the suction of the central vac system.
Summary: this thing is easy to use, light, powerful and we have a 4000 square foot house. We fill up the bag in just three or four uses, not even vacuuming every room. It is a big pain in the butt for this reason as those bags are expensive. But I cannot complain about the quality of the vacuum.
Summary: We have hardwood floors throughout our house with area rugs in the living room, sun room, dining room and 2 hall ways. The vacuum did GREAT on the hardwood but we had a difficult time vacuuming the area rugs. We do have a mastiff with short hair that sheds a moderate amount.
Summary: (Plus) - Light, small, well made. - Good motor, reliable suction (not as strong as others say, but above average for its size). - Well made bag-change system. (Minus) - The "motorized" attachment for carpets is inferior to most others in the market, and "manually-pushed".
Summary: This vacuum is small and easy to manuever but as in other reviews I found that I often flip it upside down because it is so light. I managed to kink the plastic hose as there is no reinforcement in it and the power head gets full of dog hair so fast that I have to cut it off after every time I...
