    Pros: Can't think of any.
    Cons: Poor suction on floors!

    Summary: We have had this for over a year and have found this to be a very poor vacuum. We have a lot of wood floors in our home and this thing will not pick up anything. You have to sweep the house with a broom and dust pan. It does a fair job on carpets, but ... read more

    Pros: Powerful, good color
    Cons: Too heavy, bulky in tight places, not long enough tube for accessories, not good on wood floors even with air flow adjustment

    Summary: I bought a surprise for my wife, the best on the market so I was told. She used it once and called me at the office to tell me that the unit was too heavy, hard to handle in the tight corners of our home and when she used the floor attachment she could ... read more

    Pros: Excellent sucking power
    Cons: Could be a little pricey for some.

    Summary: I bought this product two months ago after moving into my new house. At first I was a little hesitant to spend the $423.00 that it cost, but I am so very glad that I did. This vacuum is by far the best vacuum I have ever ... read more

    Pros: works flawlessly, will suck the chrome off of a truck bumper.
    Cons: heavy, is more pricey than other manufacturers.

    Summary: We bought out Riccar about a year and a half ago, and it is the best value, even at its price, that we have ever made. The wife has long, thick hair, and she tends to shed heavily on the bathroom carpet. Our house is about half and half wood and carpet, ... read more
