    We are so pleased with this product and just amazed at how much "stuff" it picks up each time we use it. I've used it throughout the house and just couldn't stop after I saw how much it pulled from the carpet - I then started moving furniture around to get behind and under various places. And the unit's attachment arsenal really makes it a breeze - everything is so easy to use and you can tell this unit was designed with the user in mind. And you can easily get to all those hard to reach places. It works so well that we've joked that our winter heating bills will probably go up given all insulating dust bunnies that have been sent packing. And sometimes it seems like we've vacuumed up a "cats worth of fuzz" and we don't even have a cat. This is really an awesome machine and we're very happy with it - and we especially like that not only can you immediately see what it has picked up, but you can quickly and easily dispose of it too. Nice job Electrolux - the Versatility lives up to its name and is a real winner.

    I vacuum EVERYDAY!!! Sounds odd but when you live in West Texas the dirt blows constantly. I bought this vacuum with curiosity and was tired of going through cheap vacuums twice a year. I knew I could return it if I did not like it and kept my receipt close by just figuring it would not work the way I wanted. WRONG!!! I love this vacuum. The day I bought it I had already vacuumed with my cheaper vacuum. So I got it all set up, which is very easy, turned it on ( I love the way it sounds when it starts up) and vaccumed my living room. I was amazed and disgusted at the same time. I could not believe what my vacuum was missing and was not picking up. I vacuumed ALL day. I absolutly love it. The only thing it is missing is a retracktable cord. I do have to say I miss that about my old one. For the price I say it works exactly how it should. My carpet stands up now (where high traffic areas are) LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT

    It's so tempting to use the standard vacuum joke.... but I'll restrain myself. This vacuum does what it's supposed to do - clean stuff. The suction is fantastic for carpet, bare floors and with the wand and attachments. Switching from one to the other is super easy. Dumping the container isn't too bad either. I've never seen one that was perfect but this one is close enough. The only negatives are forgiveable. It's a bit heavy and unwieldy. I doubt I would even mention that if I had not seen a friend's Tyson Ball and previously used one of those super light things that the professionals use. But this is a midrange priced vacuum. As such it fits. The suction is as good as any I've seen and it has all the attachments that I need or even want. I do wish it had a less "plastic" look and feel but I suppose that using less plastic and more metal would make it more expensive and more heavy.

    This vacuum provides excellent suction. It doesnt spit debris, dust out when vacuuming edges of carpet and linoleum. I haven't owned a cheap vacuum that didn't do that and it simply drove me crazy. This vacuum is easy to operate and maneuver. It is a bit heavy but when operating it I don't notice because it pulls and operates very easily. I love the amethyst color...it sure beats the 70's green dirt devil vac that I previously had. I had been thinking about purchasing a dyson and decided on this one instead after reading the reviews...I can put that extra couple hundred dollars to better use elsewhere! If you buy this vac you will not be sad or sorry. It is an excellent choice...There is no light on this vac, however, and that is it's only drawback...but I don't usually vacuum in the dark anyway so no biggie!

    I was hesitant to purchase this vacuum because I thought it was a bit expensive. After reading that this vacuum was compared to and highly recommended over Dyson models, I decided to take the chance and go with the Electrolux. I couldn't be happier! I couldn't believe the amount of pet hair it picked up (and was even more disgusted with the amount my old vacuum left behind!). I use it in every room of my house; I have carpet, tile, and Pergo floors and it picks up well on all types of flooring. It is a tiny bit heavier than most vacuums I have used and I wish it had a light on the front but other than those 2 small cons I still highly recommend it. I love that I can pull the handle out to vacuum up those pesky cobwebs in the corners of the ceilings and the dust that collects on the ceiling fan. And again, you will be shocked with the amount of dirt/dust/pet hair this bad boy can vacuum up!

    Don't bother buying this vacuum. Mine worked fine for just over one year then suction became reduced to the point that the vacuum won't pick up pet hair or visible dirt any longer and the upholstery brush no longer spins. I called customer service to receive warranty service and was sent a new upholstery attachment. The new attachment wouldn't spin either because the motor and suction is the real problem. Then customer service told me to do some "trouble-shooting" which consisted of taking apart the hose and checking for blockages, which I'd already done. That didn't help the suction either. Then customer service told me to take the vacuum to a nearby service center. The service center said that the motor was going bad. They also refused to do the work on the motor since they've had trouble getting reimbursed by Electrolux for service work in the past. I've now been instructed to drive the vacuum to another service center over 45 minutes away for service. This center may or may not be willing to do the work under warranty. I feel like Electrolux is giving me the run around so that my warranty will run out before I can get service or a replacement vacuum. I do not recommend doing business with this company!!!

    Do not buy this vacuum if you have allergies, especially if you are allergic to dirt. The filtration system in convoluted and has to be emptied by hand. The filter design does not allow hair and dirt to fall out automatically. There are multiple foam filters that are supposed to be taken out and washed. My bagged vacuum was much easier to keep clean. This vacuum is very stylish and has good suction but it is heavy (27 lbs) and has few cleaning tools. I wouldn't recommend purchasing it. I regret that I did.

    I've had this vacuum for 60 days! And the roller just stopped! There is no hair stuck in it, just bits of plastic. It seems that the plastic end cap on the roller has melted to it's self!!! I have very long hair and had a old Kenmore for over 10 years. I am very careful to clean the hair out of the roller. For $300 I expected a lot more from this machine. Especially being an Electrolux!

    I originally bought a Hoover Platinum Elite, but returned it as I found it didn't have all the attachments listed and didn't think it worked very well. I have a long-haired cat who sheds like crazy. Two passes of the vacuum over my area rug and not a trace of hair is left. Also, it has a great mini-turbine that you can use on furniture and stairs, etc. It is heavier than the Hoover, but it is self-propelled so maybe there's a tradeoff there. I'm a petite gal with a bad back, and I can get the vacuum around fine. I'd love it if it was lighter, but I'd rather have a good quality machine that actually picks stuff up. The attachments are super convenient and work great. If you're looking for an alternative to spending a small fortune on a Dyson, this Electrolux is a viable option.

    This vacuum met my expectations and then some. I have an older Kirby and this vacuum picks up way more than it ever did. It's also very nice to have all the accessories attached so there's no searching for pieces when you need them. Emptying the container can be difficult at first but if you do what the directions say, then it is no real problem at all. I've had this vacuum for almost a month and I have no complaints so far. Would definitely recommend this to friends.

    • A. Have a Chow and Collie mix, so he sheds a lot. This vac does a great job of picking up the hair on both carpet, and even hard floors since you can shut the brush roll off. Best thing is the neat little cone of hair that comes out when you dump the cup.

    • A. There is a foam filter behind the dust cup that is washable. Depends on how often you vacuum, but I clean ours every couple of months. There is also a HEPA filter on the front of the unit, which is not washable. This filter should be changed about once a year. Have had our Versatility for a year this month and never replaced. To check the filter, remove from the cleaner, hold it up to a light and replace if you cannot easily see light through the filter. All the dirt is on the inside of the filter so you have to remove it to check.
