I bought this vacuum based on good reviews and a good price. It worked really well for about six months, and then it seemed to lose its suction power. I would have to vacuum the same area several times in order to pick up hair or other debris on the floor. The tilting feature of the vacuum also broke within a year of purchasing the vacuum. My vacuum will no longer lock into the standing up position- it just permanently tilts back which is really annoying. I also wish the vacuum came with more extensions to help vacuum stairs or other surfaces besides floors. I feel like the vacuum is not designed well to work on stairs since the only attachment it came with is a brush attachment, which doesn't work very well on carpet stairs. I do love how the vacuum is bagless. It's so nice to just open the compartment, dump it in the garbage, and put it back on the vacuum. Sometimes when I vacuum up too much, the filters get clogged quickly and I end up having to clean them out. Normally, though, I have to only clean out the filters every few times I vacuum.
