I bought this to replace a red Widepath Tempo I've had for about 10 years that bit the dust. We did work it pretty hard though, cleaning up home renovation debris as well as the usual everyday stuff. I tried to find the red one but it must not be made any more. The only difference I can tell is that the blue one doesn't have a full bag indicator, which isn't a deal breaker for me. Anyway, back to my review... This is a great vacuum for the price. I expect it to last at least as long as my other one. It is lightweight which is perfect for going up and down stairs. I love the bag (I don't like bagless). The tools are very handy and the cord is nice and long. This was shipped to my home in only 2-3 days, way shorter than the estimated delivery time. Very easy assembly in just a couple of minutes. In my photo I show my old Tempo on the left and the new one on the right.
