Summary: It stopped picking up almost immediately and the belt came off and it was difficult to get back on. It still doesn't work very well and it sits in the back of the closet. Maybe I got a lemon considering all the great reviews. I should probably send it back but it's been awhile so I'm not sure I can.
Summary: This vacuum works well, has a good build quality, and is light and easy to use. The only issue (and not a big one for me) is that is does NOT have hose attachments. I went to buy another one of these for the second floor and the new model is available - with hose attachments - great! I bought the new model. My only disappointment was that I paid $138.00 for this model and the new model was $186.00. $60.00 for the hose attachment seems pretty steep.
Good for commercial use but maybe not commercial quality

Summary: What is great about this vacuum is probably also it's biggest weakness. The vacuum is cheap which is great but the parts feel flimsy. We use this vacuum every day and it does work well. We like how it has a wide suction area and the cord it comes with is long. The belt has broke once in the matter of a year and a half, which I suppose isn't bad. But what also broke was the mechanism that locks the handle in place.
Summary: I was a little skeptical of this when I got it because it was so incredibly light. I have four dogs, two are husky mixes. All shed some. This vacuum picked up everything .And the ease of going to different flooring surface levels was really great. The best vacuum I have ever used thus far. And trust me this family is hardcore with vacuums. Teenagers,dogs , and my husband needless to say we vacuum daily. Will update in 3 months.
Summary: I'm a big fan of Panasonic Cameras, Stereo Equipment, Aircraft Carriers and Rockets, but this vacuum is just awesome. It's not stellar on hardwood, in fact, I think it just kind of tosses dirt around, which is cool, because my wife usually sweeps it up later. But on carpet, this vacuum is a beast. It's lightweight, so if you're frail and still vacuuming for some reason, this is a great choice.
look deceiving, it is a tough vacuum! I am amazed in happy status

Summary: I read all previous reviews was skeptical, but right now I am happy that I bought this little black plain vacuum. I live in an area where dust storms rage and settle into your home, no matter how much you seal your home. In four years I have gone through ten vacuums and have never been satisfied- Bissell, eureka, Kirby, and hoover.
Summary: I have used this machine for 30 years, I get a new one very 3 years just because I clean homes for a living and they get a lot of use they don't break down and are metal part and light weight, also they have a 50ft cord!
Summary: I like this vacuum because it is light weight and it dosen't have all those attachments that hang off and cause it to be heavy. I have a Hoover Porta Power that I use for hard floors, so I didn't need the attachments. The vacuum has really good suction and an automatic height adjustment that is pretty cool. The cord is way too long and kept getting tangled up so my husband cut it and made it shorter, which works alot better now. I would recommend this vaccum.
