It is not very often that write reviews on products but I find myself compelled to write one on the Prolux 7000 vacuum cleaner I purchased last week. I consider myself a smart shopper; I read MANY reviews and compared options on various products and was lured to this vacuum in particular not only because of its outstanding 7 year warranty (most had only 2 or 3), but also the on-board tools, deep cleaning utility and the detachable wand was a big plus. Set-up took only five minutes. The instructions were as easy as a plug-n-play... just make sure the handle is pushed to the base until it stops, then retighten the screw and you're all done, ready to go. The fire engine red casing on this unit matches all my other household appliances and it has a gorgeous, expensive-looking finish. It's well built, sturdy, and the headlights are positioned perfectly. I learned something new with this vacuum that I never knew before because this is the first vacuum I've ever owned with headlights -- if you vacuum "in the dark", you can easily see every crumb and fuzz ball! As a result, my floors have NEVER been cleaner! I loved that I could detach the wand in 2 seconds to get into every nook and cranny. I loved that it is self-propelled which makes the duty a breeze. I love that it has a nice long cord that doesn't get tangled like some do, and that it stores easily into the closet. Overall, this is BY FAR the best vacuum I've ever owned! I'm very, very glad I decided on this model. There's only one problem I have: It makes vacuuming so much fun that my hubby and I now fight over who gets to vacuum and who does the dishes. So far, I've won every time! Ain't life grand!?! Thanks Great Vac! Job well done.
