There's no frills on this model; no headlight, no attachments, can't run vacuum without the brush; it's either all on or off. However, it cleans like crazy. You can feel the powerful vacuum pull the head to the floor and it quickly extracts a lot of dirt. Some have complained that the handle doesn't lay flat, but that's not true. There's a second stop on the handle, to go flat you just depress the foot pedal again. The appeal of this model is the kind of performance it delivers for the price, and the promise of Electrolux longevity. If you just want a basic workhorse to clean carpets quickly and don't mind that it doesn't look like a rocket ship, then this seems to be a good bargain.
I love my Anniversary Edition Bagless Upright. I've had it for three, almost four, years now, and the only maintenance it's ever needed was replacing the belts, and that's only because my husband can never remember to switch it from bare floor setting to shag carpet setting. This machine is my vacuum cleaner, pet hair remover, duster, drapery vac, and ant-slayer. If I was stranded on a desert island with only one super long power cord and one appliance, it would be this one. Well, this one or a power nailer or a saw to make a raft with. I took one star off the review because some the knobs/switches are a little flimsy feeling and emptying the filter chamber can be kind of messy (which would hardly matter if you were stranded on a desert island!)
This vacuum is for rugs and bare floors it has a great design and is easy to dump out. No fuss and no attachments but will suck up everything and last forever. Get a shop vac with attachments for other jobs like stairs or large messes. Not to mention this is a great deal for an Electrolux and the shipping is super fast !
