First thing that surprised me was the small base. I thought that the vacuum looked small but since I've seen the commercials I heard it did a good job on cleaning. The Fabulous points that I loved about the Hoover Windtunnel air was that it's lightweight, and offers multi-function cleaning. This vacuum has a long hose attachment perfect for cleaning cob webs, stairs, couch cushions, and along the edges of furniture but there is a small process to attached the hose. Bagless features is a plus because there's no extra costs for bags. I didn't find that the suction was that great but it did pick up deep within the carpet. Didn't get along edges of furniture & took several passes for some items. The Air filter is washable too so that's a money saver. The roller doesn't roll but the brushes do pull in dirt when pushed. I seem to have this annoying whistle noise with mine but I do notice it goes away if tilting to the right or left. disclosure: I received a sample of this product to facilitate my review, but my opinions are entirely my own.
