    WORST PURCHASE IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD

    This vacuum is a WASTE OF MONEY. It does not pick up any debris so you pretty much have to pick up things with your hands that the vacuum missed and the handle slides off consistently and there was no piece to make it stay attached. As soon as you tilt the vacuum and move it forward then back again the handle keeps sliding off so it makes it IMPOSSIBLE to vacuum without having to slide it back on every two seconds.

    Purchased Model 1398 two days ago for home use. Very happy with performance and use on various surfaces (bare floors, rugs, etc.). Hoping for good, quality usage over the next few months.

    Superior suction and filtration!

    After using bagless for about 10 years and getting extremely frustrated when emptying them I finally decided to go back with a bagged machine. And I am glad that I made that choice. This vacuum has a HUGE dust capacity and the best filtration system I've ever used. Never once has this machine clogged and I accidentally vacuumed up a few fabric sheets by mistake. Now, as for the suction... AMAZING! This machine just eats hair, dust, fine powders and dirt. Even when the bag is near full I noticed no drop in suction. Plus this machine weighs about 10 lbs and you could easily lift it over your head! My only complaint is that when vacuuming hard floors it has trouble picking up (and sometimes kicks them back) larger pieces (ie cereal) and certain types of cumbs while dirt, dust, fine powders are sucked up perfectly. Other than that it's a highly recommend machine!

    AMAZING, AMAZING, AMAZING! Okay, I know all caps is a turn off for some people, but this vacuum warrants them. This vacuum is powerful, very lightweight, built amazingly well, and get this, it's BAGGED! That may turn off some people at first, it certainly did me, but after 4 months of use now I can confirm that I'm never using a bagless vacuum again. It sucks up the dirt and keeps it sealed in. The HEPA filter on the side has no dust in or around it (visible at least). My old bagless unit's HEPA compartment would get all dusty after a couple weeks use, and you'd have to practically take apart the whole machine and clean it. Not this one! Also, I'd like to mention that the Febreeze bags are awesome. They actually have a nice scent, and they last! I change my bag about once a month, and the scent has always lasted through the bag change. What else... I think that's it for now. Don't let the low price fool you, it's amazing. I definitely recommend it!

    I have allergies to dust and dust mites and this vacuum has been helpful in controlling those allergies. It is easy to push around. The reason I did not give 5 stars is that the hose does pop off quite frequently as does the power cord from the groove above the slot for the hose. Otherwise, it is easy to fix if the belt comes off (I vacuum from tile to carpet. This has only happened once in 3 years). It does an EXCELLENT job vacuuming tile. My water after mopping is barely soiled. So much cleaner than when I would use a broom. Also, it is very easy to change the bags. For those reviewers that say dirt blows everywhere, I ask if you have checked the filters and ensured they are intact. Also, it has been my experience that if you have these problems so soon after purchasing it, the retailer will exchange it. In addition, the on board tools are handy and easy to quickly access when cleaning. I would recommend this vacuum.

    Comment from Lisa - 8/28/2014

    Thank you for your review. To secure the upholstery hose, make sure to pull the hose tightly to clip into the holder.

    Had a de-flea project 1700 sq ft. home. Rental with large carpeted living, dining and bedrooms was never de-flead from prior tenants with pets. This vacuum has awesome suction and a low setting to really scrub the carpet dirt up into the vacuum. Once over does the job! No repeat strokes, gets it first time. I have 3 furry shedding cats. Easy small product assembly, didn't even have to read the instructions. This is the only vacuum I will ever purchase. I hope they keep making them and never stop!

    I am on my third one of these. They do tend to break with heavy use after 2-3 years, but they are so economical and do a decent job. I like that it is lightweight and really great on carpets, even with pet hair, and I like the bag. I always hated emptying a dusty cartridge. My main trouble is that it's pretty useless on hard surface floors - it will definitely just blow around the dirt vs sucking it up, even on the lowest pile setting. I usually sweep and then suck it up with the crevice tool. The first thing to go is typically the plastic piece that locks the vacuum upright allowing it to stand on its own, then various other pieces of plastic. The vacuums tend to remain functional in spite of that, you just have to lean it against the wall. The cord length has become shorter with every newer model, which is a pain. Wasn't so bad in a smaller house, but now it gets on my nerves.

    This vacuum worked perfectly until I changed the bag. I've had bagged vacuums before so I know I put it in there correctly but ever since I changed the bag it won't pick anything up and it started making a weird sound. I already made sure that the bags were to right size and that nothing was clogging the vacuum. So I don't know if this vacuum just sucks after you change the bag or what but I'm definitely wishing I had a baggless right now. I use my vacuum constantly for my house and when cleaning other people's houses so it's displeasing when you put money into vacuum that you can barely even use anymore.

    • A. About every other month, maybe every 3 months or so... depends on how often you vacuum. I have 2 dogs that shed so I'm vacuuming every day. But the bags are very inexpensive, like $5 for a pkg of 3.

    • A. This depends on the amount of dirt and trash you pick up. For normal use, once a month at most. (Of course in my house I have changed the bag in a week). It has the indicator on front that helps with this.
