I bought this vacuum based on the reveiws saying how great the suction was and how easy it is to use however I have not had the same experience. While yes it is light and easy to maneuver, the suction is terrible! I have cleaned it thoroughly and it has not made a difference with suction power. I will vacuum and when finished I can clearly still see debris on the tiles. It doesn't clean our short carpet properly either, I can see it not picking up little bits of paper amount other things. Another thing is the suction only comes from the front of the machine so when rolling vacuum backwards, the wheels will just push the dirt backwards and wont pick it up. The sides have no suction either so it doesnt collect anything close to the wall unless using front on. I do like that you can change heads and extend the vacuum arm but that is probably it. Very disappointed and do not recommend.
