The eureka brand has been out for a long time and somehow a lot of people don't know about eureka's quality, performance, and price. The eureka Power Speed Lightweight Upright Vacuum NEU180 is a lightweight vacuum that packs a punch. The first time I used it, I was impressed on how much power it generates and it picks up the smallest of things. For me, I believe this vacuum is quieter than my other vacuum and it does not overheat with continuous use. Compared to other lightweight vacuums, the eureka Power Speed Lightweight Upright Vacuum NEU180 is more versatile and holds more with its extra-large dust clip. One thing I really like about this vacuum is that I can use this on all floors – carpet, tile floors, hardwood floors, and concrete in the garage. I do not have to switch to a different vacuum. For all kinds of cleaning, there is always a handy attachment that I can use to clean cobwebs, ceiling fan dust, and hard to reach places. What is really nice about the eureka Power Speed Lightweight Upright Vacuum NEU180 is the price. I could probably spend more on a popular brand vacuum but the eureka Power Speed Lightweight Upright Vacuum NEU180 will do the exact same thing. Why spend more? I highly recommend this vacuum because it does the same thing what other fancy, expensive, high-end vacuum do. This is a best-kept secret.
