I like this vacuum a lot. It's a bit heavy. I can definitely tell a suction difference when I put a new bag in it. It will not suck as strong right before the light comes on to change the bag. Once I put a new bag in it's really strong and nice. The bags are pretty small and need to be replaced frequently. It doesn't suck up the edges very well but I'm not sure I've ever used a vacuum that does. It's a little annoying that it doesn't have a hose so I have to use it VERY awkwardly on the stairs or get our shop vac out. I like how it's a simple design and folds up to store. It's very user friendly a carpet button, hardwood button and off. It has a light that turns on when you need to replace the bag or the filter.
