Summary: Very good suction and QUIET, which was important to me. Nice controls that let you control suction. My other Hoover upright (its the highly rated cheapo on Amazon) is so loud it makes my ears ring after I use it, and terrifies my animals. I have mostly wood floors with a couple jute rugs. I can't see this vacuum working on carpet unless it's very flat.
Summary: You get what you pay for. After years of "middle of the line" vacuum cleaners, I upgraded to a Miele, which definitely cost more, but it does more. Great cleaning power, and a pleasure to use. The one drawback: as stated by others, it can tip over when being moved. Not a big deal...you have learn to to move it gently, and you'll avoid this issue. Overall, it's a good value.
Summary: You can vacuum and dust your entire house with this! Floors, ceiling corners, cobwebs, curtain rods, light fixures... everything! The adjustable suction allows you to lower the power for delicate cleaning. Yet the full power mode picks up everthing!
Pros: Adjustablle Suction, Easy to Use, Lightweight, Powerful/Good Suction
Summary: This is very light weight and does an excellent job. As noted by other reviewers, it would be better if it had a longer cord. I live in an older home & receptacles are scarce. I have to put the vacuum on top of my bed to reach one side of my bedroom (& my bedroom is not large). I have decided that the best course is to store an extension cord with the vacuum to solve this issue. A longer cord would have earned the unit 5 stars.
Summary: I was looking for a second vacuum that was lightweight but had a good bit of suction as I have shedding dogs and mainly wood floors. This vacuum meets most of these needs. The bags, which I consider to be more expensive than average, hold more than I expected. The vacuum moves about easily and for the most part I am very happy with it. It does not pick up well on the few rugs that I do have. I take my larger vacuum out when the rugs need to be vacuumed.
Summary: If you get pissed off every time you vacuum then this one might be good therapy. We had a bagless upright that spouse claimed worked "fine" but was heavy, cumbersome, a pain to change attachments, and throwing dust everywhere when emptying, despite filter or whatever they say works (making me super cranky). We have low pile, medium pile, and tile floor in a little over 2000 sq ft. with carpeted stairs 3 cats and a dog. This vacuum works great.
Summary: I have had this vacuum for a couple of weeks now. It replaces a Kenmore canister I bought about twenty-some odd years ago that, if parts were still available, I would have fixed rather than make this purchase (nothing against this product), as I really liked the Kenmore. So this product rating will be more of a compare and contrast against the Kenmore.
