Comment:
i've owned this vacuum for a year. The carpet brush portion will not stand up on its own due to weight imbalance. The base is not heavy enough to hold up the wand, and after a few seconds it tips over. Watch your walls and anything valuable on a table! Very frustrating to have to lay it on the floor just to protect things in the house. Also, beginning at about six months every time we use it, it (apparently) overheats and shuts off. It takes four attempts to finish our small upstairs carpet area. Hardwood is fine, though. It seems to only occur on carpet, regardless of how small the pile is. I've tried cleaning all filters and putting the brush at a higher level in case the brush was working too hard against the carpet. No go. This cost too much money to be so useless. Otherwise the design is very nice with regard to attachments, and the ease with which the brush head comes off the wand.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
I purchased this in October 2013 due to CR BEST BUT vacuum of the year. This is a terrible machine. The dust bags and filters leak all over the inside of the machine. It loses function due to this and is the worst vacuum I've ever purchased. If you already have this, try to return while in warranty and don't always believe what you read here. It may have tested good initially, but does CONSUMERS REPORTS test after 2 months of use? I wish I had not even consulted CR on this purchase. Be warned.

Comment:
I brought this vacuum from Amazon in March 2014. By April it didn't work. Amazon took it back. I (like a dummy) ordered another one cause I liked the technology of this vacuum. By Sept-October the telescopic wand would not stay engaged to the beater bar. The vacuum is only used once a week at the most when my housekeeper uses it. The button that holds the wand and beater bar head together is not out far enough to stay in the beater bar, hence the electrical connection is not made and the beater bar doesn't come on to vacuum. I have taken the wand to a vacuum store. They said they can't fix it. I looked at every site online to by a replacement, but can't find one. Finally, I called Amazon and they said I could return it for a full refund.
