I love this vacuum for both my ceramic tile floors and carpet. It picks up dust and fine particles that a broom cannot compete with. It is easy to manuver, although I haven't had it long enough to need to clean the dirt canister yet. One thing I do want to mention is that I did not see in the listing that this is a factory reconditioned item. If it was in the ad, it was in extremely small print, as only when I received the vacuum did I also get a notice in the packaging that this is a reconditioned item and the warranty was not the standard warranty, but rather just a 90 day warranty. Be aware of this if you order this item.
