Comment:
I am comparing SEBO to the Miele Titan Canister, the Kenmore and Hoover uprights that I have owned over the years and this is better than all three others. I disagree with the CR review and I think that CR should upgrade this vacuum to the top pick. It has many well-thought-out features and it is more than powerful enough for household use, including power enough for attachments. The minor inconvenience of having to bend over to adjust the carpet beater bar is more than offset by the ease of using the indicator on the power head to properly adjust the beater bar height. The build quality is excellent and I am O.K. with spending a little more to get quality and functionality. I have a 2,000 sq. ft. house, so I appreciate a good vacuum. If you take a few moments to read the instructions, you will appreciate this vacuum and it's many features.
How long have you owned it:
A month or less
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
I am comparing this SEBO to MIELE TITAN, KENMORE and HOOVER for functionality, convenience and quality of build. It is the best of all and I disagree with the rating that CR has given it. It is much better in all categories and deserves a much higher overall rating. It has more than adequate suction for the attachments, contrary to CR's rating and overall it cleans very efficiently. I rarely give any household product a 5-star rating, but 4-stars for this product would not do it justice. Yes, it does require you to bend to adjust the height of the beater bar for carpets, but that's a minor inconvenience,given that the power head has an easy to use indicator for proper adjustment which offsets the inconvenience of bending. To park it upright, you just have to use the 2-axis detents to keep it from falling, but that's also a minor inconvenience, offset by the fact that it parks in the upright position easily. It has excellent power and moves easily over carpets. If you read the instruction manual before the first use, you will appreciate the features and well thought out design of this vacuum. Since I don't have stairs or pets, I did not comment on it's ability to clean either. My house is 2,000 sq. ft.,so I appreciate a good vacuum.

Easy To Empty
Easy to Use
Powerful/Good Suction
Switch For Power Brush
Cons
Hose Can Cause Tipping
Paper Bags Clog Quickly
Short Power Cord
Best Uses

Comment:
Used primarly for fast carpet and floor cleaning. Nicely manueverable, good air filtration, not too loud. Original Paper bags clog with fine dust: optional fiber bags clog less and provide greater airflow.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
