    Pros: Canister feature, picks up dirt well
    Cons: Very cheaply made, mine has literally fallen apart.

    Summary: I ordered this vacuum thinking that by paying a little more I would get a better quality product. I was wrong. Everytime I go to use it something else is wrong with it. It has literally fallen apart. The latch that holds the filter cover on has ... read more

    Pros: You can see how much dirt you get out of the carpet.
    Cons: Heavy weight, low wand suction, hard to maneuver wand, dust poofing out of canister when emptying

    Summary: After my sister-in-law RAVED about her Fantom Fury, I decided that it was time for a new vacuum. My 10 year old 6.5 amp Panasonic never seemed to pick everything up; even when I went over the carpet several times I could still HEAR the dirt in the ... read more

    Pros: None
    Cons: Everything

    Pros: Good power and pick up ability, when working
    Cons: Defective apparatus. Heavy.

    Summary: I bought the XT to do the real deep cleaning I saw on the advertisement. It did exactly that. I could not believe what I saw in the collector. That lasted for about 2 months. Then the product began to act unreliable. It would not run on the carpets. ... read more

    Pros: None
    Cons: Poor craftsmanship and materials;junk motors

    Summary: What an expensive disappointment. Our Fantom XT only lasted 3 months before it broke down and had to be repaired. It is appararent that the manufacturer used the cheapest plastic materials that they could procure. The money should have gone into a more ... read more

    Pros: You can see the dirt it picks up.
    Cons: Not easy to empty completely. The brush clogs easily.

    Summary: After about 4 months of using my Cyclone, the brush starting turning on and off when I vacuumed. I took it to be repaired. I was under the assumption that the cost of repairs would be covered under the warranty. WRONG. I was informed by the repairman ... read more
