  • Vacuuming's New Heavyweight Champ (In more ways than one)

    Feb 25, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Mind-boggling performance. Astonishing suction. Hard-core cleaning power. Worth the money.
    Cons: Heavy. Expensive. Need crash course in using attachments. Salespeople can be overbearing.

    Summary: A couple of months ago; my wife and I traded in a Dyson on a Sebo X4 Extra. We loved it. I reviewed it on Epinions; gave it five stars. I thought--and so did others--it was a great product. A real sleeper in a nation filled with vacuum brands and ... read more

    Pros: Tremendous power and cleaning capability.  Looks sleek and expensive.  Top quality, the absolute best. 
    Cons: Expensive as heck.  Don't like that you have to buy it door to door.

    Summary: Just bought my second brand-new Kirby.  They are horrifically expensive, first of all, I paid nearly 1300 bucks for mine.  However, the motor is so powerful there is almost nothing it cannot do.  The new one, a Kirby Sentria, is lighter ... read more

    Pros: Retro style, great cleaning capabilities, lots of attatchments, lifetime warranty
    Cons: More complicated than traditional vaccuums, highly priced, pushy sales people

    Summary: I was definately suckered. A seemingly nice pregnant woman and well dressed man came to my home to demonstrate the Kirby Sentria and at first I was sketchy about letting these people in my home. Then the pregnant woman says "All I need is one more demo ... read more

    Pros: Super suction, attachments, shampoos, self propelled, quality craftsmanship, heavy, chromey, retro style
    Cons: Pricey, door to door sales, no cord retractor, no swivel handle, not easily found bags/cleaners.

    Summary: Well, I'm a sucker but that's okay. Be an informed sucker! Some guy knocks on my door & offers to vaccuum & clean my carpet, like this suburban housewife won't say "No"! When a dude does something I don't have to, I will happily let him do it! ... read more

    Pros: Solidly built. Great suction. Well engineered motor/chambers. Bright headlight. Non-mar bumper.
    Cons: Labor intensive. Noisy. Heavy. Expensive. Clumsy. Door to door sales.

    Summary: I bought in moment of weakness & overpaid. I was impressed with it's suction and the demo of the dust & dirt it got out of my "clean" carpet. It may be a gimmick, but what it pulled out of my mattress sold me. The machine will outlast me, but try ... read more

    Pros: Worked pretty good, had lots of features and attachments.
    Cons: Too expensive, heavy, too complicated

    Summary: As a favor I agred to a Kirby demo, the salesman even agreed to clean a 4ft by 4ft area over and over until the new Kirby could not pick anything else up. I then wheeled out my Dyson DC17 Animal and filled half of the canister in that area, even ... read more
