this is a good vacuum if you have low to medium pile carpet ...

Summary: This vacuum does not work on high pile carpet or shaggy rugs. I was hoping it would but unfortunately it stopped every time I would try to vacuum my rug (which is a large one approx.10 x12 ft) And same thing happened to me as this other review... When I opened the box (that was damaged on the side??!) i realized that I wasn't the first person to open this box. You know how it feels when it's brand new and this didn't ??!
Summary: Rather than rewrite everything here, go and read my review and comparison to the Miele S8 Continuum unit we went with instead after trying the Sebo for a month. The extensive review is on the Product page for the Miele.
Basically, we had two manufacturers defects that needed taking care of for which McHardy's was great on, and we didn't like some of the characteristics of this vacuum. Kevin.
Summary: Tired of spending $200 or so every couple of years on poorly made, "disposable," vacuums that don't work very well even when new, I decided to bite the bullet and invest in the Sebo D4. The suction was amazing. It cleaned my medium-high pile carpet extremely well (enjoyed the manual carpet height adjustment), did a great job on my hardwood floors, and it was incredible on cat hair (I'd be a crazy cat lady if I didn't despise cat hair so much).
Summary: Too expensive for my taste. It needs a 360' swivel hose because it is difficult to use. It does not put out any dust in the exhaust that I have noticed, it is quiet,and I have used Sears,Panasonic,Electrolux, Eureka,Hoover, and Rainbow. The cloth covered bumper is nice, but the fabric has torn in three places after only a couple of weeks use, and I take very good care of my stuff. I don't think it out preforms the Sears top canister though.
Pros: effective, quiet
Cons: difficult to use, did not meet my expectations, hose does not swivel
Summary: Der Staubsauger an sich saugt prima. Leider ist die Düse, sehr hoch, so dass sie nicht unter die Schränke passt (bei unserem alten Miele ging das). Bei der mitgelieferten "Tierhaarbürste" sollten nicht so viele Tierhaare vorhanden sein, da diese sich ruck zuck um die Bürste wickeln und die Bürste dann nicht mehr funktioniert. Ist also unbrauchbar für lange Tierhaare.
