Pros:Easy to use, Light-weight

Cons:Does not pick up dirt like it should, loud

The Bottom Line: Do not buy. It just does not do the job it is suppose to do. You have to vacuum and vacuum to get the job done.


We bought this vacuum cleaner at the beginning of the year. We thought it would be a great one to buy. We figured since it was a Eureka it would be worth the money. Boy were we ever wrong. It does not pick up dirt like it should. Most of the dirt stays in the bottom tube and does not go all the way to the container where the dirt should go. We usually have to go in and get the dirt out ourselves. Very messy. I could go over the same spot a couple of times and it still does not pick up the dirt like it should. I have had better vacuums that do better for less money. IMHO, I think this is one vacuum you should stay away from. We are planning on getting another come payday. We are just so tired of vacuuming and it not doing the job.

I do, however, like the fact of it being bagless and its long cord. That is the only part we like about this vacuum. the best part was how easy it was to put together. Even my husband could do it without having any problems.

The worst part of it all is when you have to change the belt. Not like on "normal" vacuums where you turn it over and take the bottom part off. On this one you have to take screws out from the hood (where the carpet control is). This is a bit time consuming. I have never had a vacuum where you changed the belt this way.

This vacuum cleaner comes with the following attachments: 1 crevice tool, 1 combination tool (dusting brush & upholstery nozzle), and 1 wand. It has 7 height settings to match your carpet type. It does come with a one year warranty.

There is not to much I can say about this product. It just is not worth the time or money.
