Hands down, the best vacuum cleaner I have ever owned. I bought mine 6 years ago. I have a husky/lab mix dog that sheds like crazy. Vacuuming is a daily occurrence. It's easy to use, easy to clean, multiple settings and attachments. It makes cleaning everything , I mean everything so much simpler. I have hardwood floors and carpet through out my house. I love that there are different settings for each surface. The wand is longer than other vacuums I have had. It makes it easy to dust those high hard to reach areas. I simply put on an attachment and go to town. I will clean the blinds, railing, baseboards, doors, trims, my car, I even have an attachment for brushing my dog. In the six years I have had this vacuum, I haven't even noticed a drop in suction power. It still works just as well as the 1st day I brought it home.
