Comment:
I use the vacuum as an upright on rugs, mats & bare floors. My husband uses it as a canister. The attachments are easy to use & work phenomenally. It is VERY easy to empty. My only complaint is that the canister fills up quickly. However, that is because it picks up so much dirt & pet hair! It blows away any other vacuum I have had. It is also quieter then most other vacuums I've used. This was the best purchase I have made in a long time!

This product worked extremely well for the first 12 months. The best vacuum I had ever used. However, after a year the quality went down hill FAST!!!!! It began with a loss of suction. The extensions became useless because the vacuum could not generate enough power for any strong suction. Now the vacuum shuts off at different times making it pointless to even try to vacuum. Save your money. Don't purchase this product. Most of the positive reviews are most likely soon after the consumers first purchased the product.
