My husband and I bought this vacuum for our college-age daughter who has an apartment with friends. I easily assembled it for her and decided to give it a try before she took it. I ended up vacuuming my entire 2 story house with it because I LOVED the vacuum! It is very lightweight and super easy to use. The attachments are marvelous and very easy to switch up. Also, I really like the bagless feature. We have a cat and 2 Golden Retrievers so we really put it to the test and it passed with flying colors. I did not want to give it to her when she left after the holidays. I have a $400 canister vacuum currently and now I HATE it and I am buying one of these for myself. I highly recommend this vacuum.
