This vacuum is impressive! After using it for several weeks I am very pleased with its functionality. It was easy to assemble and has a great look and color. The power of this upright is truly phenomenal on low and higher napped carpets and on hard surfaces. I like that I can adjust the suction power so that I can do my smaller throw rugs without them getting sucked up into the beater brushes and that also allows me to use the wand to clean my blinds and drapes. It is extremely easy to change to the wand and cleaning accessories when needed and they are stored right on the vacuum. I personally like the longer cord as that allows me to go from room to room and up the stairs without having to change plug-ins which saves me time and steps. I do love the lighted path the vacuum provides which I have never had before on any upright that I have owned. I haven't had to change the vacuum bag or any of the parts but I did ck that out prior to using it the first time and managed diassembly and reassembly in a very short time! The sealed hepa system is great in eliminating the dust that usually accompanies most vacuums. With the sturdy construction and long warranty I am confident that this product will serve me for a very long time. I am so impressed I am contemplating gifting my daughter with a Prolux 7000!
