To start with, the vacuum shown here is NOT the bagless model, so the other review must be ignored since it is for the wrong product.

The Kenmore vacuum is FANTASTIC. I sampled the vacuum out in a local Sears store and compared it to a top of the line Dysons and Hoover and it blew them away. It pushed much easier than the Hoover and it destroyed both of the other lines with its cleaning ability. The Dyson and Hoover vacuums only did a fair job cleaning, while the Kenmore didn't leave ANYTHING behind.

The intelli clean sensor on the vacuum has proven to be pretty helpful. I have a tendency to vacuum a little too quickly, and the intelli clean sensor helps me to know if I've gotten all the grime vacuumed up.

I never thought that I would become so partial to a vacuum because I figured that they were all the same, but there is a huge difference and when you're talking about spending a couple hundred dollars or more on a vacuum, I think it is worth it to get the best. If you really are serious about getting a good vacuum clean, go to a local Sears or other store and ask to try out this vacuum and compare it to others, and I am certain that this will win hands-down.

I have purchased many vacuums, and they never seem to last, no matter how much I spend. I used to own a Kenmore vacuum and it lasted about six months before clips and other parts starting breaking off of it, and I ended up hating it! I was hesitant to buy another Kenmore (even though every appliance in my house is Kenmore), but after reading consumer reports rating on this one, I purchased it. I have had this one for 3 years(?) and it is the best vacuum I have ever used! My carpets have never been cleaner! I LOVE it. I can't rave enough about it. It still has all of the parts works great!

From personal experience, I prefer a vacuum that uses bags. It contains the dirt better. It is neater and cleaner and I feel it is much easier to just pull off the bag and toss it, then it is to mess with a filthy canister and have dirt falling out everywhere.

I read here that someone returned this vacuum because the Inteli-Clean light stayed RED. I know of two reasons why the light would stay red. One is that the sensor is dirty,(inside the bag compartment is a dirt sensor that you need to wipe off with a rag every time you change the bag,(see the manual). Another reason is just that the carpet is R-E-A-L-L-Y dirty. The first time that I used this vacuum I wanted to get the "GREEN" light. In order to finally get that "GREEN" light in every room, it took me around 6 hours of vacuuming! That is how horrible my other vacuum turned out to be. After that "initial" cleaning, it is much quicker now, and it is easy to keep up. I know my carpets are clean!

Remember, most of us do not vacuum correctly and we think that one sweep of the vacuum gets the job done, it doesn't. The Inteli-clean option on this vacuum reminds you of that and it lets you know which areas of your carpet need a little more attention.

We purchased this unit in large part due to the Consumer Reports evaluation. This unit does suck up pet hair pretty well, and the filtering is adequate, or was when new.

HOWEVER, the unit's construction is poor -- even cheap. Unlike our 20 year old canister vac, this unit is almost entirely plastic. Within a year the tiny plastic nubs which engage the wand to the hose broke off. Now the hose end is splitting, because we have to jam the hose onto the wand in a fruitless attempt to keep things together.

The hose itself apparently uses cheap carbon steel wire, as ours in now crimped badly near the body, where the vac's own electrical cord caught the hose.

The extendable wand is a joke -- it bends in normal use (floor brush) and now won't stay locked in extended mode. And the power cord is likely to be the next failure, given the lack of strain relief where it exits the body.

Initially, the unit was great to use, given our allergies. Much quieter than our previous upright. But within a year something's gone wrong with the filtering (yes, we replaced the secondary "hepa" filter in addition to the bags!) and we're getting the same old 'vacuum stink' along with a return of itchy eyes after cleaning.

We will probably avoid Kenmore in the future, given the lack of durability. Not recommended.

In short, I love this vacuum. I spent a fairly long time searching through reviews of vacuums I found online, and had a very hard time coming to any sort of conclusion about what to buy. So, I turned to Consumer Reports, who rated this model #1 for 2008. I decided to put my full trust in good ole' CR, and immediately hoofed it to Sears to purchase it, sight unseen. (I had really had enough of my old Bissell.)

This thing rocks. I have that terrible dorm room carpeting in my apartment that somehow grabs and holds onto everything that touches it, and it doesn't stand a chance against my Kenmore. The special setting for bare floors has been more useful than I expected, as has the setting for lowered suction (for rugs and what not).

Yes, it's fairly heavy. But I don't even consider that a con for a vacuum this great. Plus, why not throw a bit of exercise into your cleaning routine?

I adore this vacuum, and I think you will, too. It's more than worth the {cheaper than a Dyson} price.
