Several problems with this vacuum.
First, it is fairly heavy, I'm guessing somewhere around 21 lbs since shipping weight is twenty-five. Not a problem for a few carpeted areas but will eventually be an issue if you are doing a large house.
Second, the "attachments" are a joke. The Powerbrush attachment is powered by the suction through the hose so the brush does not rotate. It is basically a marketing novelty. The Crevice tool is too wide at the narrowed tip to maintain suction in the hose, consequently it often pulls dirt toward the tip but doesn't actually vacuum it up. The extending hose does not stay seated in the vacuum well and if you aren't on top of it, it will have a leak and not suction dirt.
Finally, the suction seems decent on the vacuum but it requires regular cleaning of the filters to maintain functionality. So unless you enjoy inhaling the dirt vacuumed around your house when you clean the filters/cannister, it isn't a good product for you.
Basically it is a waste of money if needed for all around cleaning since attachments don't work, suction is lost when any attachment is used, and the heaviness will severely limit its use in a multi-level house.
