Summary: Just used my Sebo Felix for the first time. Previously I have purchased "top rated" domestic vacuums and they lasted a few years. The Sebo brand attracted me because of the reviews and the fact it is designed and constructed in Germany. Now that I have used the Sebo I am not dissapointed in the solid design of the product. For those who own a German made automobile I would compare it to that solid "clunk" you hear when you close a German made auto door.
Summary: I have four dogs so I bought this because of the research my husband did on line for all of the major brands. I have had a Dyson Animal (Not Ball) for several years and really like it but do not like the ball. I really like this vacuum especially that you can change the suction and the brush roller can be cleaned easily.
Pros: great suction 5 yr warrenty filtration system
Summary: I tried this vacuum at a vacuum store today because I had seen it here on Costco's website. It got HOT! It was fine when I tested it in the upright mode, but when I switched it to carry it like I would use it to vacuum the stairs, it was so hot I started sweating. Also, by the time you add any attachments to the hose, it doesn't have much suction. I chose not to buy it because of how under-impressed I was with it.
Summary: This vacuum is okay. It seems well built. It's heavier than other vacuums and does not glide very easily across carpet or hard floors. I got this to replace a Dyson that broke. I wouldn't buy this again. It's a $250 vacuum with a $500+ price tag. I might return this, I might not, but either way I'm not really happy with it.
Pros: solid well built looks nice easy to access hose for spot cleaning
Cons: very heavy hard to push around isn't worth the premium price
Summary: It is a near perfect vacuum for me. The bag can hold a lot and last for two months. I vacuum the whole house about every two weeks and vacuum the small areas whenever they are dirty. It is also a problem because it has smell after 1.5 month. It is amazing how it can fit so much garbage into that little bag. I have to empty the cup for 3-5 times after I vacuum the whole house with the Electrolux bagless Nimble vacuum.
Pros: solid and well build machine vacuum carpet and tiles floor very well carpet feels puff and soft after vacuuming easy to push it fits under the cabinet speed slide control is a plus the bag lasts for two months i don't need to wear a mask when i vacuum
Cons: it is heavy for me the bag has smell after 1.5 month expensive
