Of all the positive reviews, I think that it's time to come clean and post a review that lives up to the quality and usefulness of this product. While the performance of this vacuum is pretty good for in between cleanings, it falls short in many ways that leave it less than desirable for even quick cleaning jobs. Standing at a decent 7 amps, this vacuum performs pretty well. After the first use, my house seems to be almost as clean as if I had used a full size vacuum. If you have been looking at this vacuum and contemplating whether or not to buy it, you may want to look for something that costs a bit more. While the vacuum does work pretty well, as I have stated, the lack of functionality beyond an upright shines through and makes this product nothing more than a glorified, but slightly disabled oversize Dust Buster. Coming with absolutely no attachments, and no usable hose, getting a top to bottom whole house cleaning is not possible. Yes, there is a "hose" there, but it is nothing more than a passthrough for the dirt to get to the collection tank. It is not removable and has no other function. Two other downfalls of this product are the location of the power switch and the awkwardness of the switch that releases the lock on the vacuum. The power switch is too close to the lock release switch, which can get in the way and cause the vacuum to turn off when releasing the lock. The ease of releasing the lock, is at times somewhat difficult and frustrating. If you're looking for a quick clean vacuum for in between cleanings, this may be the product for you. Keep in mind it's shortcomings, however. If you think this will fill in as your regular whole house vacuum, you can pretty much forget about it. Look for something else, and save yourself a trip to the store because you had to return it.
