While it does a very good job in vacuuming, it is not that powerful. Therefore, if you are looking for a super powerful vacuum, this is NOT it. The area where this product really excels is in its maneuverability and how portable it is. We have several vacuum cleaners in two different floors. I just noticed that I have been using this unit in both floors most of the time! It does a decent job in vacuuming and it is so easy to take it everywhere in the house. In some way, it is just like an Apple product. It may not have the most impressive specs, but its usability is great it just works and does its job well. It is also the most quiet vacuum cleaner I have ever owned! Overall, its build quality and style are pretty good. The construction of the handle is slightly on the flimsy side. Again, depending on what you are looking for, this may or may not be your ideal vacuum cleaner. If you are not expecting a super powerful vacuum cleaner, then this could be the one you are looking for. Happy shopping and cleaning!
Loved this vacuum after using it on wood floors and Oriental rugs, but when it came to using on wall to wall carpet it broke - the front brush part came off every time the vacuum was pulled backwards. Sending it back today. Overstock had no problem issuing a return label and will issue a credit. So sorry this did not work out for me since my old HEAVY machine will have to be it till I find a better one.
My 74 year old mother is very independent and insistent on doing her own housekeeping. She dreaded vacuuming before we bought her this for Christmas. She says she ENJOYS vacuuming now (is that really possible?) If you are looking for a VERY EASY TO USE, effective vacuum, this is the one for you.
Obsessed. Got this on Black Friday with a coupon. Another AMAZING deal from Overstock.com. I received the vacuum one day earlier than expected. Assembly was easy and I vacuumed my whole house in half the time it used to take me to vacuum/sweep. We have herringbone tile floors, huge area rugs, and 3 wonderful, shed-dy, fur-children (a siberian husky, if ya know what I mean...) and I'm already excited about how much easier chores are going to be. The Dyson picked up lots of yucky goodies. The ease of dumping the bucket is worth it alone. I had no issues sucking up little chunks of dog food, fur, and dust. There's a great return policy if you don't like the vacuum- I wish I had more to splurge on the HEPA filter one. Can't wait to pick up a few attachments. If there are any mechanical issues- I will update this review.
