Unbelievable deal. Buy it now.
on September 4, 2004
I bought this on clearance here at Amazon and am VERY impressed with the quality!
Very powerful suction
Air-filtration actually makes your house smell better after you vacuum (seriously, I was amazed!)
Washable HEPA filter (save $$$)
Wide vacuum head
Easy to reach hardwood floor setting (turns off beater-bar)
Relatively light for the power
Easy to clean
Last but certainly not least: Price!
Power switch is big and easy to see, but it doesn't have that solid on-off quality (I had to hit it several times to get it to stay on the first couple of times I used it.)
Dust canister is a little small (but so easy to change it isn't a big deal)
Beater bar belt cover is a little large (now I am nitpicking)
Overall: Unbelievable vacuum. Unbelievable deal. Having two short-haired, wire-haired terriers as well as one two cats (one long haired), I never thought I'd get some of the hair out of the carpet. After vacuuming with this new vacuum, the carpet in the pets' favorite spots to lie on the floor feel like brand new carpet.
Buy this vacuum NOW, you will not regret it.
