Good suction but it kinda sucks!
on January 26, 2015
Positive: The suction is great and the Pet attachment's suction is great.
1- the Pet attachment's magnet is not strong so it can knocked off easily. Annoying.
2- the bagless container has two parts: the bottom portion which is very easy to empty. If you have pets (we have five cats so I vacuum every other day) then the container fills very quickly in which case I have to reach up inside to dislodge the fur trapped behind one of the filters. This is not easy or pleasant because you have to reach way up and the space is very narrow. If you have big hands you'd not be able to do this. So, then you'd have to detach the other part of the canister from the bottom part which is easy to do. BUT to reattach it is NOT easy. I have to do it each time. You probably think, "why don't you empty it each time you vacuum?" I do and it's a pain because hair still gets trapped. I imagine if you have one short-haired animal or a Golda-or Labradoodle then it would be less of a hassle UNLESS you have a new rug!
3- it's bulky.
I'd rather have bought a different one. Because it's primarily made of plastic in China it'll not last I'll probably be buying another within the year.
