I like this new vacuum cleaner. It does a great job so far cleaning the various different floor mediums I have, tile, wood and carpet. The bagless idea is great especially if it picks up something you need back. It's also nice to be able to see when things need changed out or emptied. There are two things I found I consider down sides to an upright vacuum cleaner. The first is being able to sneak under furniture. The vacuum cleaner doesnt drop down low enough which means to do a really good job of cleaning means moving things out of the way. The second is the poor instructions/trouble shooting that comes with the machine. Pictures are great but not really clear enough. A little less time bragging about the company and more words about the machine and what ifs would be really very nice.
