It is great for in-between days when you don't want to lug around a heavier and bulkier vacuum. Its light-weight and small footprint make cleaning quick and easy, and with 2 pets, I have to vacuum daily to keep up with the shedding. Given its rated power and size, you can't expect it to handle all your vacuuming needs, but after each use I empty a full canister, as this fella' leaves little behind. It is surprisingly powerful and effective for its size and 2-amp rating.
It only struggles with larger junk like peanuts or pieces of popcorn, but generally that's due to its low clearance from the floor. It also leaves behind some embedded animal fur in the carpet, but deep cleaning is what a 12-amp Vac is for. It works very well on carpet, furniture and even hard floors, but I should point out that it may not be the best at solid debris like cat litter or tiny pebbles on a hard surface.
I'd highly suggest it for anyone. Small and powerful, making it awesome for small dorms or apartments, but also a great addition to your regular vacuum for quick daily cleaning.
The suction is ok. It's only 2A so I'm not expecting much. I mostly have dust and dust bunnies on the floor and the vac works well on those. I do follow up with one dry wipe using a microfiber cloth especially when it's under the bed. I occasionally have a few peas on the floor or a stray thin noodle (dry). The 169B cannot pick those two up. The pea is too dense? The noodle is too close to the floor? Anyway, no biggie. I just pick them up. The 169B is still a lot better than using my cordless Dirt Devil Exteme Power 83414HD that dies off after ~4 min.
The nozzle has a 7.5" opening but it will not suck up dirt/debris from corners and that's because it only has 2A power. Greatest suction would be at the middle of the nozzle. It's of course impossible to get the middle of the nozzle into corners so I carry a hand broom/brush while I'm vacuuming so I can brush the dirt out of the corners/tight spots and out onto a more open area that the 169B can freely access. Left hand swoops and brushes, right hand vacs. Easy peasy.
Threads (I do a lot of sewing) get caught up in the brush roll but that's true of any vacuum cleaner. It's a pain but it's one of those things that has to be done - snip off the threads from the brush roll so they don't accumulate and tie up the brush roll from turning.
This vac lies flat on the floor. This is a very important feature when you want to clean under beds. A lot of stick vacs have humps on their backs so they're unable to lie 180 degrees (with the nozzle flat on the floor) on the floor.
On the material - I have a Dirt Devil 0871 hand vac (7A). Compared to that, the plastic material of the Eureka 169B is thinner. Additionally, the dust cup doesn't lie snugly against the body. There's a fraction of a millimeter gap between the top end of the dust cup and the body (the portion that has the handle and switch). I don't know if that decreases the suction going through the dust cup but it sure is odd. I've never encountered a vacuum cleaner before with a gap like that, not even with my old Eureka stick vac. I would probably not have chosen this yellow 169 verion if I had seen this in a store before buying it. I'd probably go with the other colors. My sister-in-law has an older Eureka 169 that's a dark blue color and hers doesn't have the gap that mine has.
I have a paper towel covering the filter so that when it's time to empty the dust cup, I don't have to pull off or brush off dirt from the filter itself. I only have to peel off the paper towel and everything is stuck to it. I get the same weird satisfied feeling I get when I peel off a whole sheet of lint from my dryer's lint screen. I got that paper towel tip from another Amazon reviewer. I forgot who but thank you, whoever you are.
I bought an extra STK filter so that I have one to put in when it's time to take out the filter and wash it.
This is a good purchase but if there were any available, I would have chosen a stick vac with higher amps (10A) with a brush roll and that lies flat on the floor. There just isn't any.
I bought this vacuum cleaner on 11/2012. Sometime this year (probably March), I noticed the brush roll wouldn't turn when on rugs. My rugs are all low pile and the brush roll did use to turn when I cleaned those rugs. I opened up the base to see what's wrong. The brush roll is held in place by plastic holders at the two ends. The two plastic holders rest against the black base. The plastic holders had indents where it was in contact with the black base. The result was that the brush roll position was lower that it should be which is why even a low pile rug would already be too "high" to cause the brush roll to stop turning.
Solution - Fixed the plastic holders by covering with aluminum sheet. I also covered the areas of the base that was in contact with the plastic holders so that "vibrations" would not cause the plastic to be worn away. This was an interesting fix but I had hoped I wouldn't need to do this on a vacuum cleaner that is not even 3 years old. Parts that hold moving/vibrating parts should not be made of plastic! Minus another star for using parts that easily get worn out although I would still buy this model. There just aren't that many choices when what you want is a corded stick vac with a motorized brush roll and at least 2A.
The suction is still working but the motor for the brush roll is COMPLETELY DEAD. The brush roll is very important to me. A stick vacuum cleaner without a working motorized brush roll is not an efficient tool for me.
So, it lasted 4 years and 5 mos. That’s not too bad for a $24.84 vacuum cleaner. I can see that, now, this vacuum cleaner costs ~$60. That makes it less cost effective to buy if it’s going to die in 4 years. I will go for a Dirt Devil Vibe SD20020 instead.
Most frustrating part is that you are supposed to hang it for storage do it doesn't rest on the bristles or the head. The curve in the shape of the vacuum makes it difficult to hang. The tiny narrow "hole" in the handle is at a weird angle,;I can't find a traditional broom rack.that works. I consulted with people at yep different hardware stored s with no success. There is no hook that fits through the tiny hole in the handle. Nothing is at an angle where the vacuum can just hang. Also it is heavy enough I want to attach it to a stud in the wall. For the last four weeks, it is stored by laying on it's side at the bottom of my closte. I will continue to try to find a solution. It has taken too much effort and time.
