I love this vacuum. It's easy to use, adjust & maintain. It works quite well, getting most of the pet hair on the first go round and always sucks the dirt away. It really is my favorite bag less in this price range. Maneuverability Excellent Maneuverability - It is able to go under furniture, the tools help extend your reach quite high, the crevices are no longer an issue at all and (my favorite) those pesky edges between the wall and the carpet are cleaned thoroughly. Ease of Maintenance I love how easy this is to maintain. You don't have to be a mechanic to keep it going. The belts and filters are easy to change. Keeping the brush clean (giving it a haircut) is also a breeze. There's no chance for clogs to block your cleaning efficiency, as all of the vacuum is easily accessible. Suction Performance The only "downer" I would say about this model is that you do have to go over some areas several times. Heavy pet hair & hard floors seem to be it's Achilles Heel. However, once you've gone over these areas in the right setting, it only takes a few extra swipes to get it done. Versatility I love how versatile my vacuum is. It's reach extends quite high (no more dusty fans, corners, etc.) It goes from hard wood to plush with an easy flip of the switch. Moreover, using the tools & extensions are so easy, nothing seems impossible for me! Design I think the design is great. The access & storage of tools, filters, etc. makes them easy to access without getting in my way. There's no fear these tools will be lost! Durability I bought it new over 4 years ago. It works just as well as it did then. It appears much the same, easily qualifying for a gently used appearance.
