I absolutely am satisfied with my purchase decision. First, I was shocked when the package arrived at my door four days after placing the order. That was fast. Although I loved my first one, this one has a lot of improvements. As a vacuum, it will shock you with how well it picks things up off of a carpet. I have four rescue dogs, three poms and an alaskan eskimo, all long hair, and this machine deals well with that. With the "fences" it can be targeted to a room and a hallway or whatever and it covers 100%. Battery life is good and it recharges quicker than claimed. This one is much easier to clean out than the older one and all the instructions were spot on. I love the thing and would recommend it to anyone. Works as well on tile and hardwood as the carpets. This is one happier buyer, for a change!
