[edited Dec 2013]

I received mine today, but since there are no other reviews I'll go ahead and share first impressions now, and come back and update later. (If I do not update, it's probably because I haven't had any problems, right?)

It's more durable and solid feeling than its picture might make it look. The handles are comfortable. The canister removes and inserts easily and definitely, and there's a handle in the back to make it easier to empty. I never thought I'd be talking about how convenient it is to empty a vacuum, but it's pretty nice. There's also a carry handle on the vacuum (for stairs, etc), which isn't as comfortable, and I usually just grab it "by the neck" to go downstairs. The filters are easy to access and fairly foolproof. The attachments are simple friction fit and also seem fairly durable and foolproof. In general, the machine deserves the "commercial" part of its name. I do worry whether the "snap in place" cover for the HEPA filter may wear out or break over time.

The brush arrangement and wheels are also heavy duty, but again lots of plastic here. Depending on the quality of the plastic this could be no problem, of course--only time will tell. The rear wheels do not spin freely, which I am hoping will become less of a problem with some break-in or a bit of grease. This resistance makes the vacuum feel heavier than it really is.

At the highest setting, the brushes just touch the tops of a 5/8" pile carpet. The medium setting is about right for ruined berber. :) The lowest setting is quite aggressive. I doubt this would be a good choice for a longer shag carpet, but that's unlikely to be a problem for most people.

The canister is big enough to clean quite a large house without emptying. However, the filter will probably need regular replacement [edit! The filter is washable, so I am wrong here--make that *occasional* replacement], so budget for that. It's not a complex cyclonic arrangement, but the positive side of this is that the fine dust gets caught in the filter instead of creating a mess when you empty the canister.

It comes with a spare belt. Will I be needing that? [edited] YES! If the brushes get blocked, say by eating the edge of a throw rug, the belt drive motor can burn through the belt in a few seconds. I am now using the spare belt, and have acquired a very quick reflex of turning off the vacuum when I even suspect that something might get caught in the brushes. I wish it had some sort of protection device.

The cord wrap is recessed slightly and is slightly inconvenient to use. Of course, some commercial users may not even be using that. I don't--I just coil the cord by hand and hang it from the top hook.

As far as actual vacuum (sucking) is concerned, it has lots of airflow, and I like how it cleans.

Emptying, lugging it around, and actual cleaning all are good. At this point I'm assuming the materials quality matches the rest of the design for 5 stars. For now. :)

[addendum] It is basically useless on hard floors. Just so you know.

[dec 2013 verdict] I still like it a lot.

[special bonus] How to destroy the dust filter: wash it by hand in warm water, but then reinstall it in the vacuum before it is completely dry and let it sit for two weeks. Now you will notice that it has totally clogged with mold, will not pass air, and stinks. Be sure to dry the filters completely before reinstalling. :)

HASH(0x98bff618) out of 5 stars Easy, Effective, Economical March 20 2010
By Bill F - Published on

The price is highly competitive with other, more heavily advertised, bagless cyclonic vacuums. Assembly was simple. It's easy to use and very, very effective. It's lighter than many but heavier than some. Still, it picks up a great deal of dirt, especially pet hair, is easy to clean--including the two filters--and exceeds the performance of our previous lightweight bagged upright substantially. Included tools are easy to set up & use, though the flattened end of the crevice tool should be longer. Overall, it's an excellent product that I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

HASH(0x98bffa44) out of 5 stars sanitair Oct. 26 2010

I have only had the vacuum a short time, but allready it has shown its worth. It is lighter than I expected and easy to use. there is no diconnecting and reconnecting of hoses to use the wand, you just pull it out and use it. The suction is excellent. the amount of dirt removed from an area that I had just vacuumed with our old vacuum was very telling. I would recomend it to anyone. only the price was a little daunting.

HASH(0x98bffa5c) out of 5 stars Very quiet, efficient vacuum Oct. 17 2010
By Amazon Customer - Published on
This is the best vacuum I have ever owned. It is quiet (70 dB compared to the Hoovers 80 dB) and allows me to keep up with two Shelties who seem to shed all of the time. With a doggie door they drag in a lot of the outdoors, but the vacuum has yet to balk at the mess they make. I have owned it for more than a year with no problems whatsoever. Highly recommended.

Still going strong 3 years later!

Still working well after 4 years. Light, easy to maneuver. Have to remember to knock the dust out of the cap filter. Highly recommend this vacuum.

HASH(0x9907df24) out of 5 stars Great Vacuum May 21 2014

I did a lot of research on a commercial type vacuum for home use and needed something that also filtered the exhausted air due to children's allergies. This vacuum sucks up the dirt and pet hair from a dog (long haired) and 3 cats. Very happy and satisfied with the way it works. The 50 ft power cord reduces time spent unplugging and plugging the vacuum in. I would recommend this vacuum to others. Fast shipping too.
