I love this vacuum! Maneuverability Lightweight and easy to use. Makes for quick vacuuming. Ease of Maintenance The bag compartment is easier to access than other vacuums. It fully unzips so you can easily get to the full bag to remove it without causing a mess. The bags detach easily and the new ones can be replaces quickly. Suction Performance There are two speeds, both of which are very quiet. The high speed is better for tough jobs but both work great. It has an automatic shut off if you accidentally suck up a rug corner, etc. Versatility Easily and quickly vacuums all types of floors. I've used it on various thicknesses of carpet, different types of rugs, tile, and wood. Design It has a lightweight and sleek modern design. The cord is long enough that I can vacuum my entire downstairs by only plugging it to only two outlets. Durability I sometimes vacuum haphazardly and bump into table legs or chair, sometimes even the wall, and this vacuum has stood up to all of that without a scratch.
