Well what can i say positively about this vacuum, it has great pick up power on rugs and the cord is quite long enough for me to go from room to room. The cons, well its quite loud compared to my canister vacuum. There are not attachments with this product so you really can get in the corners so i end up pulling out the canister too just to thoroughly clean the room. I borrowed this from my mom who had here carpets ripped out so she didn't need it anymore. It doesn't clean on the first push, back sucks up better when you pull it back again. The bags are big and kind of expensive so thats a con to me. I honestly have to say for what this vacuum costs I wouldn't say I love it, just say its okay. Maneuverability Its heavy and clunky. I don't think its worth the money at all. The front is too tall to get under things and you end up dragging out the other vacuum. Who wants to bother with two vacuums for one room. Ease of Maintenance Haven't had to repair or replace anything Suction Performance Not as good as I thought it would be. I'd rather have my Hoover Versatility Works great on rugs, but its such a bulky machine I don't like it on my floors. Design Nothing special about the design. TOo heavy when pushing around on the rugs. Doesn't glide well Durability No problems with durability.
