I received the vacuum and after 1 use the start button didn't work. Fortunately, the seller
refunded the purchase in a timely manner. I would advise the purchase if you can make sure
you're not being sent a previously returned/refurbished product. The suction is excellent, and it is
quiet. I only wish it came with a crevice tool.

I bought this vacuum for our new 1500 square feet of travertine tile. We remodeled and took out
most of our carpet. I absolutely LOVE it. The vacuum has great suction (I have it on the lowest
setting), is easy to manuever, has a long adjustable handle (to save an aching back), has a
retractable cord (no more wrapping the cord), and is VERY quiet (I can still hear the phone ring
while it is on). I use it mostly on tile, but also have a Persian carpet that it works great on. I
would HIGHLY recommend this vacuum for tile!

I purchased this after using upright models for many years. Now I have more hardwood floor,
and this model has been excellent. I also find that with 3-4 suction settings, it does well on my
area rugs and carpets. I can use less suction on the lightweight rugs, and more on the carpet. It is
very quiet, and I like that it is made of recycled materials.

We finally made the plunge and converted from carpet to hardwood floors. So naturally we
needed new equipment for cleaning floors. Growing up, my parents always had Electrolux
vacuum cleaners, the cylindrical (heavy!) bag types, and they seemed to work forever! We went
looking around to all the dept stores and home improvement places, read some reviews (on
Amazon) and decided that this model would be very nice. We didn't actually try it out at the
stores, but checked the features, build quality and sturdiness.
All seemed good, and we ordered one on Amazon.
As is usually the case, the items arrived quickly and in very good shape.
Having run this unit through its paces several times now, I can say that it lives up to our
expectations and needs extremely well!
It is light (a very big plus for my spouse), maneuverable and QUIET.....The slider control for the
motor speed (and therefore suction level)is very convenient and smooth. We like the bag
approach as well as the HEPA filter. Some people may feel the bag is a hassle to have to replace
- Having had to empty out the old upright bagless canister, I can safely say that the bag is MUCH
better. You don't have to deal with the dust, smell and stuff in the canister!
The self winding cord is also very smooth and sufficiently long to give good range for
It has the usual complement of attachments to get in small out of the way places and to vacuum
furniture. The tube can be adjusted to any length which is nice.
I'm not sure what some of the other reviewers are trying to pick up but for hardwood or tiles
floors and even (low pile rugs)this little "egg" works just fine and efficiently picks up dust, hair,
pet dander, etc....
Bottom line: I recommend this vacuum cleaner.
