I bought this vacuum almost 6 months ago. Good product for the price! I did a lot of research before I bought, I didn't want to spend a lot of money. The unit has good suction and an easy to clean filter. The attachments work well on our furniture (mico suede), occasionaly the hose falls out while I'm vacuuming, but it doesn't really bug me. I have an older dog with excessive shedding, and it does a pretty good job getting all the dog hair. Luckily I don't have any stairs and I wouldn't want to haul this up, it's a bit of a heavier unit. All in all, very happy with the vacuum. Great bang for your buck!
