    DO NOT HESITATE TO BUY THIS. I bought it after reading all the good reviews and even though my friends told me to buy a Kirby/Dyson ...those were too expensive. So, for $100 (I had a coupon, so it was slightly cheaper. All the reviews says Dyson clone. I don't know how good a Dyson is - I have never owned one of those. Here goes...I got this...put it together in five minutes (not even). Read directions on how to clean out canister and change filter. Both VERY EASY tasks! Anyways...wanted to really test this sucker out. So, took my Hoover U5140-900 Tempo (the upright blue one that gets rave reviews!!) bagged vacuum and really really really worked over our family room carpet. I must have gone over each area at least three times. It looked faboulously clean. Then...turned this Whisper on...and yes it is much quieter. My kids (who were both deathly afraid of the old vacuum) ran into the room to ask to try out the new TOY!!! Seriously! They each (5 and 3 years old) pushed the vacuum for about two minutes! They thought it was fun...are you kidding me??? They go from deathly afraid of the old vacuum to now wanting to use the new whisper quiet vacuum!!! That's a testament to how much more quiet it is as well as a different noise (more of a high pitch than loud roar). Anyways, ran over the family room carpet one time...and...OMG, you would not believe how much more DIRT, DIRT it picked up. It didn't suck up carpet fibers to make you think it's sucking up more....no, this was DIRT, DIRT! My wife was floored...she couldn't believe the crud that was being emptied out of the canister. She immediately grabbed the vacuum and headed for other areas of the house. Cons, it is a little on the heavy side...so, for vacuuming stairs...you need some muscle or use the extension only. I even took a photo to show you all the extra dirt it picked up. Remember, this is dirt it picked up after I already vacuumed with a very popular Hoover U5140-900 Tempo that had a new bag in it. To wrap up...Excellent, gets family more involved in cleaning, cleans at unreal levels of your carpet! Deep Deep cleans!!!

    My 19 year-old Hoover died and I picked this one based on reviews. It sounded like a great value and IT IS !! People said it was quiet and IT IS noticeably quiet! Very nice on the ears and enjoyable to use! For the money you get a lot of suction! Bagless works great and you can see how much it picks up. Strong machine! I had a LOT of fuzz I didn't know about! Nice design with the big handle to carry it up stairs. Good planning on the buttons, adjustments and how it keeps the rotating brush off automatically when you don't want it. The hose could be a little longer but it's fine. I do not own a pet so I can't attest to the fur pickup. This unit did all that people said it would and I am very happy with it! I feel I saved at least $30 over comparable units at Kohls and other places. I don't see what spending more money will get you when this one cleans so well. Great job to everyone who reviewed it and helped me make this purchase! I am 100% satisfied!!!

    Yes it is heavy and no it does not have a light but I was amazed how much dirt this thing picked up! After vacuuming, I needed to empty the container and didn't see my manual anywhere, but sheesh I am a grown woman and can surely figure out how to empty it right? I found the dirt conatiner release button and the whole conatiner came off-great! But it was huge -twice the size of my old container so I was sure it must break down one more time somewhere. I searched for a way to break it apart and didn't see a place to unscrew it. After a few minutes of frustration I saw a small gray button on top of it and mumbled, "hmm. I wonder what this does" and I pressed it. It was a throw up button! Please see the photo and remember this when you empty yours for the first time. I LOVE it now that I know how to empty it! Oh and I found the manual too~hang on to yours.

    Good product with a big flaw

    I'm writing this to give potential buyers a heads-up about what could happen that would make the vacuum unusable without some intervention. In the photo, please note the plastic piece that locks the canister onto the vacuum (green arrow). What you can't see is that the other end of this lever (red arrow), also plastic, is inside the vacuum and is quite flimsy. If you routinely use the handle to move the vacuum around - and who wouldn't? - that flimsy part will probably eventually break. When it does, unless you are the type who can figure things out and fix them, you might as well put the vacuum out next trash day. Extreme? Not at all. If the canister will not stay locked on, you can neither pick the unit up nor use it to vacuum. Without this part functioning properly, the canister will not stay on the vacuum. End of story. It is unbelievable to me that an engineer would use a cheap plastic part for this vital function. I've managed to make the vacuum usable again by drilling the back of the vacuum, inserting a bolt and attaching a bungee cord to it. The other end, as you can see in the photo, is wrapped around the canister handle. This arrangement holds the canister in place in a front to back way. The other part of the solution is the Quick-Grip clamp that holds the canister down. They make cleaning out the canister kind of annoying, but both are necessary to continue using the vacuum which, by the way, is about 18 months old. With the exception of this one very serious flaw, the vacuum is an excellent value.

    I bought this product a little bit more then a year ago. I absolutely love it! The first thing that drew me towards this particular vacuum was the color. I love the blue, it's very pretty. The second thing was the claim that it was quiet... I didn't quite believe it but once I got it home it was MUCH quieter. We live in a 2 family apartment and with my old vacuum... I felt bad running it at any given time and with this one I feel comfortable running it at 8 in the morning or 8 at night. It picks up well and I have a 3 yr old and 1 year old... so I vacuum daily. I LOVE the pull out wand! It's by far the best feature of this vacuum. Snack time is in the living room so I end up with cheerios and other misc. food items and I can just reach out with the wand and suck them up. It's also very easy to suck up cobwebs or spiders from my 9 ft. ceilings. The downfall to this vacuum would be the canister to empty it. You have to reach your hand in and pull all the hair and dust out because most of it gets stuck.

    • A. We own a Dyson- the standard yellow one. We bought it almost 4 years ago with some of our wedding money. I will tell you, that purchase is my biggest REGRET when it comes to buying something expensive. The reason I'm on walmart.com right now is to find a new vacuum.

    • A. I've never owned a Dyson but I have used a few and I like this vacuum so much more. It might not have that fancy name but it's much more functional. The hose attachment is better designed, you can easily empty it, it's quieter, and the price is unbeatable! I honestly love this vacuum.

    • A. I have never owned a dyson. But this vacuum does exactly what I need it to for the price. It keeps my floors clean and helps with allergies too. It is bagless as well which is a wonderful plus. Hoover is a good brand and also this vacuum is quiet.

    • A. I honestly don't know about the Dyson, but I have this vacuum and love love love love it! I also own a Kirby (which are very expensive) and I prefer this little vacuum over it. It's lightweight but don't let that fool you--the suction power is awesome! It lifts dirt like you wouldn't believe and does well with hair. I have really long hair that always tends to get caught up in vacuum brushes and I have no issues with this vacuum. For the price, you really can't beat it!

    • A. Yes, there is a button to turn off the brush roll and a height adjustment also. I believe you can even go underneath and change the height of the bar... but I didn't need to do that for my floors.
