Comment:
I purchased this vacuum because it was on sale and claimed to be just like the Dyson. I absolutely loved it for about 1 week, I would get halfway through vacuuming a room and for some reason it just shuts off. I have to wait hours sometimes till the next day to move on to the next room. I used the handheld tool to vacuum my furniture, same thing the vacuum shut off halfway through, then when I went to put the tool back in it's place, the plastic clip that holds it broke right off.
How long have you owned it:

Comment:
I purchased this vacuum over a more expensive Dyson which was $$$ more expensive. I own a orange long hair tabby cat who sheds constantly. I vacuum about once a week, every time having to empty the canister at least 2x when I vacuum my 2 bedroom apartment. My last vacuum cleaner was a dirt devil which was listed as a best-buy by Consumer Reports yet did not pick up near as much pet hair and dust as the AirSpeed. One downside is that emptying is pretty messing and I discovered that you must change out the filter every 3-6 months. I was really hoping to get away completely from buying expensive filters every few months.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
I have 2 indoor dogs (moderate shedders) I have had to work hard with my Dyson to get carpets looking ok. I used the Eureka the first day,after the Dyson, and got 1/2 cannister full in living/ dining room alone. It is much easier to use (if I don't hold the Dyson handle nearly upright, it doesn't pick up well) My Zuum picks up equally well in all positions. It's still new, so we'll see how it holds up.
How long have you owned it:
A month or less
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
