This was a replacement for the Eureka Light Speed 200 purchased from Sams Club (horrible, lasted maybe a year and calls itself a hepa with lots of particles displaced back in the air, filters hard to find even from WalMart). I adopted a Lop Bunny last Feb. I used the Eureka, then was literally on my hands and knees with a Shark Hand Vac trying to get the rabbit hair out the carpet just yesterday. I put the Hoover together late last night after purchase. This morning it picked up everythng the hand vac and the Eureka left behind. It was then after re-examing the Eureka I noticed the Eureka was just pushing the carpet fibers back and forth and hair was trapped in the bristles. This Hoover must've picked up a years worth of stuff. Picked up the rabbit hair the first pass and I didn't use the pet attachment, just straight vacuuming...Hence rabbits shed all winter, all spring, all summer, all fall. If you never owned a rabbit think about shaving an angora sweater and trying to pick up the hair after it's embeded in the carpet, this machine picked it up with the first passing... Astonishing. I must've emptied the resevoir 4 times before not having anythng noticeable to brush from the hepa. Not only did I notice the difference in the carpet how much cleaner in look and the feel to bare feet, but by evening there was a noticeable difference in the inside air quality (allergy sufferer). The only difference in this unit, the $149 and the $169 units is that this unit doesn't have a stair attachment or a fold down handle. Other than those 2 execptions the units appear to be the same speed and specs & power. Manufactures have figured out if you list Pet.....in the name, people normally will pay more money. I've only had it a day, and hoping against some of the reviews that it lasts for well over two years. It comes with a 2 year warranty but no warranty card in the manual, meaning I have to make sure I keep track of the receipt, will have to make a copy as receipts fade). NOTE to users: make a folder for receipts and warranty/manual information and place in your files. Use...every few days to once a week.
