Summary: This little vacuum has a lot of suction and does a great job. It's not as big as the Bissell I bought that lasted less than a year and it's not nearly as loud, either. The handle is adjustable so you can adjust it to your height. Very nice feature there. The thing is a little heavy but once it gets moving, it's not so bad. I can't think of one thing that I dislike about it.
Summary: Since this machine replaced my 1975 Eureka after 40 years, it of course seemed wonderful. Did an excellent job of cleaning. No I want to see how it holds up over time. The Eureka set a high bar!
... vacuum now for several months and we are very happy with it

Summary: We have had this vacuum now for several months and we are very happy with it. It is one of the best vacuum cleaners we have ever owned, so far. We have a long haired cat in the house and this vacuum picks up mountains of fur. This canister is easily emptied and reinserted onto the machine. I would have liked a better self-propelled version of this model, and the hose sporadically becomes disengaged from its housing but this is not enough criticism to lower its rating.
Summary: in a range of 1-100, I would give it a 35. it does not pick up cat litter or pet hair, the upright position does not work, it does not lock, if you use the hose and try and pull it, it just falls down. I picked it up yesterday and will be returning it tomorrow.
