I'm a lodging director for a resort and we use these for our pet-friendly accommodations. No better vacuum on the market, and I do lots of research and buy lots of vacuums. I first heard about these from a friend who owns a carpet cleaning business. This is what he uses in his fleet, and recommends no other. The ProTeam 15XP (or 1500XP) looks simple, but the boxy exterior hides a powerful motor that pulls you across the floor with its beater bar. The shape of the head is perfectly made for vacuuming down hallways and hitting the carpet near the door jamb without turning perpendicular. The cord is long enough you can get from room to room without unplugging and plugging back in. The best part is that it picks up EVERYTHING. I did a side-by-side test at my own home with two-weeks build-up from three long-hair dogs and two cats. The competition was the Dyson Animal Roller Ball. The results were a joke. I had to use the ProTeam to get up what the Dyson missed, even after several passes. Do get the XP, because the hose and attachments are crucial to thorough cleaning. It's usually about $75 more than the 15 or 1500, and worth every penny. We made the mistake of buying without the attachments, and had to purchase more with the hose attachments because the difference was that much better...not cheap to when you're buying 20/year. This machine makes vacuuming FUN!
