I've had this vacuum for somewhere around 3 years and it's still working great! I absolutely love that the Eureka Vacuum is, of course, bagless. You don't have to buy any bags for it, which saves so much money over time. You just have to make sure you clean out the main tank, and clean the filter, and stuff like that. The filter that comes with it is washable. You can clean it with soap and water and leave it to dry completely and put it back in the vacuum. You're supposed to replace the filter every 6 months, but I still haven't bought a new one at all. I've used the same filter for 3 years on this vacuum. I've just been cleaning it really good and letting it dry before putting it back in the vacuum, and it still works great! Who needs to replace it?! But I really should anyways. This vacuum is easy to maintain and if the vacuum gets clogged, it's easy to disassemble just the one spot that is plugged, clean it out, and pop it back on the vacuum. Maneuverability It maneuvers pretty well. It's not perfect because it's not a small vacuum, but it does pretty good for it's size and shape. Ease of Maintenance It's easy to get out clogged items in the vacuum. You don't have to deal with bags. Just clean the main compartment and the filter when it needs it, and you're good. Suction Performance This vacuum has great suction as long as you maintain it well. Versatility It has settings for all types of carpet and even works on a bare floor. Design I think my vacuum looks pretty dang awesome!
