I've owned this vacuum for nearly four years now and have few complaints. It's relatively light weight, has four height settings and it's easy remove and dump the canister. Dumping out the canister can be a messy job (as it is with any vacuum cleaner) so I recommend taking it outside to do so. My one true complaint it that the beater bar cannot be lifted so I can't use this vacuum cleaner on my more delicate rugs. Other than that I'd say it a very good budget friendly choice.
