Initially, I was so disappointed with the vacuum because it wasn't nearly picking up what my expectation was. I have 4 cats and 2 dogs (I know...it's a lot. Lol) and an expensive leopard carpet. I was tired of seeing cat hair regardless of how many times I vacuumed. I had this for a week and was really upset because there was still cat hair after I vacuumed, I thought I am going to take this thing back but hesitated because it didn't cost that much and it worked really well through the attachments. Just as I was about to pack it up, something told me to really look at it. I am so glad that I did because the vacuum was on tool settings and not vacuum. Once I changed that this machine worked like a dream. I wonder if this is what other's problem was also. I was so amazed at how this vacuum worked and EXCEEDED my expectation. AND it didn't cost as much as the multi hundred dollar competitor which was what I was going to get but settled with this. I am a happy woman. As you see on the picture, no pet hair in sight.
