I did a bunch of research on canister vacuums because I was tired of the major components (power head especially) falling apart after 3-5 years. Usually the replacement cost of the power head is as much as the vacuum. I chose this vacuum over refurbished models of door to door sales only models because the quality was high at a reasonable price. I can't get a Dyson for this much, I can't even get a decent Kenmore for this much.
Suction is terrific, and this thing will literally fill a bag to the point of almost bursting before you need to insert another. Try that with a bagless!
People need to understand that this is made by a european company and is of similar quality to vacuums costing three times as much. Europeans don't have as many pile rugs as americans and thus the power head is a US only feature. The manual is obviously written by someone for whom english is a second language and the manual covers things that only apply to the euro model of the machine. Thus it can be a little confusing at first. The power switch on the handle only turns power on and off to the power head. It DOES NOT turn the power head on and off. That is done with a foot switch on the power head itself. Once you get the hang of this, it works quite well. Just leave the handle switch on all the time. The attachments are hidden quite cleverly in a small door on the top of the machine, which again takes a little while to find. The floor head has two modes, set by a flipper switch on the head; one has brushes and is intended for wood floors I'm guessing, the other drops the metal head directly on the floor, which is a mode you'd use on floors that won't scratch: tile, stone, concrete etc. As I mentioned above, in Europe you only get the floor head, not the power head, and the metal plate is what you'd use on your short pile area rugs as well.
Another reviewer complained that the attachments wouldn't stay connected. You're not pushing them on far enough. There are no little spring loaded plastic buttons to break here. Other than the power head the attachments are friction fit.
If I get more than 5 years out of this machine, I will call this money well spent
This vacuum replaced an upright I'd been using for a few years. The power head has a low profile so it fits under furniture better than the bulky upright did. The edge suction is good, and the floor and rug brush does an amazing job - I can vacuum my area rugs without sucking the rug up, and it actually picks up lint from the surface. It's amazingly quiet and easily maneuverable. It seems to be sturdily built with few plastic parts. The only cons I've noticed so far are the poor owner's manual and trouble locating the onboard attachments. If the cord were about three feet longer, that would be great! All in all, this is a good vacuum for the price.
I was looking for canister vacuum with power and acceptable price for long time. Personally, I think it is so ridiculous to pay $500 and up for the vacuum, any vacuum.
Because the name of the vacuum was unfamiliar I overlooked it. And one day I decided to read the reviews. I bought it. It was the right decision.
Very powerful. I have dog and a cat and this little machine do the big job.
Very quiet for vacuum with this kind of power.
The bags are better. They are not cheap paper bags.
Nice design. Beater-bar is steel and that is a plus.
It is lighter than it looks. I love the indicator that tells you when the bag is full.
Love this vacuum and wouldn't trade for any other especially at that price.
Purchased it after Xmas when on sale use it 1-2 a week. Was working fine then the beater brush stopped working and is getting no power. Back to using the cheap upright and this will be the last time spend so much on a vacuum they are all of such poor built quality better off getting one you are okay with throwing in the trash.
I unfortunately only got a month's use out of this vacuum before the carpet attachment stopped working. Overstock sent me two replacement parts that were not the problem and when I called to try and get the third was told the item was out of stock and to contact the warranty department for the vacuum and has proceeded to give me wrong contact numbers and emails. At first I was happy with the customer service and now I am very unhappy. I am currently in the possession of a non working vacuum and out $XXX. When it was working the vacuum did a decent job but not worth the price tag. The canister is very heavy and doesn't move well on carpets. The suction is very good. The non carpet attachment falls off because there is no secure way to attach it while you are vacuuming.
The power switch on the handle never worked for turning on the power head, but it did turn on with the switch on the canister, so I continued to use it that way for next few months.
Then after a few months the power head stopped working all together.
I contacted Overstock and they would not address it because it was over the 90 days.
So, I got in touch with the company that sells the product and they sent me out another power head for the vacuum.
When that arrived I immediately attached to the vacuum and to my surprise it did not work!!
So I contacted the company again and they said I needed to ship back the entire vacuum and pay shipping costs, in order for them to move forward. I shipped the original vacuum back to the company and they found it to be defective and shipped me a brand new Prolux Stealth vacuum (they paid for the shipping it to me)
It has been a month since I received the new replacement vacuum and today to my dismay when I turned on the power to start the power head it DID NOT WORK!!! Tried to unhook it, hook it up again, checked connections....same problem as before! Cannot use the vacuum on my carpets without the power head!!! :-(
I'm contacting the company again today in hopes of a refund because I do not believe this vacuum is a quality vacuum, even though its got good looks.
My recommendation is to go with a "name brand" vacuum.
Is the rug power attachment adjustable for varying rug types (high, medium, low, etc.)? Thank you.beemer51 on Jan 23, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello beemer51, thank you for your inquiry! This item comes with what is called a "floating head" which means it automatically adjusts to high pile carpet and low pile carpet and you don't have to do anything. It also comes with a geared belt which never wears out which allows the power head to float on thick carpet and vacuum no problem. I hope this helps. Happy shopping!

Does the Platinum Replacement Plan (2 year) $23.99 go into effect after the manufacturer's 3 year limited warranty expires? If not, how is a repair or replacement handled?
If the warranty and replacement plan run simultaneously and I don't want to hassle with shipping or waiting for repairs from the manufacturer, will my unit be replaced with the same or a similar unit under the Platinum Replacement Plan? In other words, do I chose which plan to use if the machine breaks or how is that determined?
