We have a small 1-bedroom house with no carpet and a 100-pound dog that sheds. Prior to getting this vacuum we had to sweep twice per day and sweeping wasn't great as it tended to send the dog-hair tumbleweeds scooting across the floor in all directions. But I loved the ease of using a broom to get around and under furniture and the lightness of a broom as I have back problems and so tend to avoid upright vacuums when possible.
When I started looking for lightweight vacuum choices, most were the "bagless" variety. After a little research, I concluded that those are a really poor choice for someone with dust allergies, such as myself, as it seemed emptying the bagless vacuums tended to expose one to dust and end up with it on your person. Not good. One of those ideas that's good in concept (never pay for bags again!) but bad in practice (exposed to dust). Once I ruled out bagless vacs that really narrowed the field for lightweight vacs. I also really liked that this vac has a HEPA filter, again for the allergies, as vacuums without it can spit out a lot of dust while vacuuming. Again, not good.
So this little vac is just great. It is really lightweight, but I rarely need to pick up the canister. The wheels work really well and it just scoots across the floor. And one end of the cord wrap underneath pivots so one turn and the entire cord is loose. The wand and floor attachment is really lightweight so it's no burden to push it around. And it swivels easily in all directions. It is so flexible I am able to clean all the way under a queen size bed from one side of the bed. Take that dust bunnies! I never have a problem getting it to where I want to go.
And it's got really good sucking power. Enough power that if you go over a bath mat or area rug it sucks it right up off the ground. But wait! One of the cool features I didn't see in any of the other reviews! Say you're vacuuming your hard floor and you want to vacuum an area rug without sucking it off the floor. There's this cool little adjustment right where your hand goes where you can open a hole in the wand and it reduces the sucking power enough that you can vacuum that area rug without sucking it off the floor. And when you're done with the rug, a little twist on the adjustment piece and you're back to full sucking power. Very cool. I have occasionally sucked my shirt tail into that little hole when it's open, but no harm done. There's also no edge issues - a space between the floor head and the wall - it gets right up against the edge, at least on hard surfaces.
All the tools fit onboard other than the pet attachment, which I've never needed to use. So the crevice tool and then a little combo tool -one side with a brush and one without - both fit on the canister. And the wand part telescopes so you can make it different lengths without having to deal with a separate wand addition. Very cool. We can vacuum our entire (small) house from one plug so the cord is long enough for us.
So there are some cons but not important enough to outweigh the pros and thus the five stars. The plastic tube going into the canister is the part most likely to break or wear out first. It's not flimsy, but just seems like it's in some danger of breaking and wish it felt a little sturdier. I'd have gladly paid the extra $1.57 or whatever it would take to make it thicker. On the combo tool, the presence of the non-brush half gets in the way at times, such as when I'm trying to vacuum windowsills. You have to figure out what's just the right angle to get the brush half in the corner without the other half getting in the way. Storing the vac is a little ungainly, but we slip it into our coat closet and that works. Just don't expect to tuck it in a corner because between the plastic tube and the wand and floor attachment it tends to want to go in various directions.
And then I discovered that they had changed some things since my last model and I have to say I'm sorely disappointed it. [Edited to add - be sure to read through the bottom - it's only 5 months later and it has broken to the point that it is going out to the trash)
The new design of the floor attachment only works on perfectly flat floors (hardwood, linoleum, no-nap rugs) and only if you use it with the bristles retracted.
One reason I loved my past Mighty Mites was that a) I could use it in all my rooms, including the one room with a low-nap carpeting and another room with a slightly shaggy rug, and b) I could extend the bristles on the bottom of the floor attachment and those would catch all the long hairs my daughters shed!
What I discovered is that if you try to use it with the bristles extended on something with a low-nap, the floor attachment becomes angled in such a way that pushing it forward becomes 3x as hard as before, AND it looses almost all suction when you start to pull it back. The attachment actually bounces up off the ground as you pull it back! There is no way to have a smooth back-and-forth rhythm... it's PUSH HARD, and then pull back until ACK! it jumped over the spot it needed to vacuum so do that part again.
I had not yet thrown away my old Might Mite and so I tried the old floor attachment hooked up to this canister. Everything worked perfectly. So I can say that this canister has good suction power...
I called Eureka customer support to see if I had just gotten a defective model, and while he was very sympathetic to my problems, he made it clear that this was just how the floor attachments are designed now. He had me try it on the carpeting without the bristles extended, and it solved the problem of the attachment being hard to push... because now it was lightly rolling along with the feel of no suction in BOTH directions. :(
He said that they made the new attachments lighter and that was probably why I was having these problems and that he had heard this from other customers as well.
I will share a few of the other design changes as well:
On the old Mighty Mite, you included two long hard plastic tubes to create the 'wand' that allowed you to stand and vacuum. I liked that if I needed to vacuum something nearer, I could pop off one (or both) of the tubes to use it for things like stairs or cobwebs in the basement ceiling, etc.
The new Mighty Mite use a single metal, telescoping wand. This has the advantage that you can adjust it in smaller increments... so if you are slightly taller or shorter than the average person, you can make it the right height for you to do the floors. And you can adjust it down to half-length so it (in essense) can work on the same jobs where you'd use just one tube from the old model. One down side, though, is that it is a lot heavier. If you often used the old wand for overhead work, you're going to find your arms getting a lot more tired with this model.
Finally, they changed the on-off switch. It used to be mechanical -- there was a tactile sensation and a 'click' that went with turning it on. The new switch LOOKS the same but doesn't work the same. You start to press it and the machine is suddenly on. But if you haven't pressed it long enough, then the machine might turn off when you take your finger (or foot) away. So then you do it again. It may be that we'll get used to it, but I asked each member of the family to try the new vacuum (without telling them my thoughts) and everyone disliked the new switch.
This model still has good suction and is lightweight/maneuverable. As several reviewers have noted, the hose is lightweight and can kink easily but my second Mighty Mite was like that so I was used to that.
My plan is to use my old floor attachment with the new vacuum... and when this one dies someday, I guess I'll be shopping around and trying out a few different models.
[Added Jan 27, 2016... wow, 5 months later and I'm already having to buy a new vacuum. The cheap hose started to kink more and more frequently, until it was literally kinking right by the handle every single time I pulled back on it. This became SO aggravating that I pressed down hard on the power switch (the same one no one in my family liked) and apparently broke it. BUYER BEWARE -- the reviews from years past where this was a GOOD product no longer apply since Eureka has changed so many of the parts to cheaper pieces of junk!]
