My previous vacuum was a Hoover Windtunnel, with dirt sensor, which lasted us more than 12 years. After such a long time, I was definitely confused what the market offers. So my first stop was my trusted vacuum repair man, who also sells them. A couple of things I noticed in his store that influenced my buy. What he was selling was not competitive to the regular market so that was no help for me, BUT, I saw how many DYSON's to be fixed???? not one or two, it was his BULK of repairs...(I would say about a dozen, or a little less), so what did that tell me?- well, if the inside of a bagless vacuum is not treated correctly, it will need service - hence that many in his store...so
I looked for my trusted Y bag vacuum. But what to choose? So I went to a different store that has vacuums on display so I can handle them. Our house does not have pets, but the HEPA filter was important for me (my old one also had it...). Our house has a mixture of Wall to Wall carpet, Hard wood floors, tile floors and area rugs; this machine does all of them great! Did I mention that I LOVE the attachment WITH the brush? the stairs are a breeze now! (since they are carpet). Suction is great-what I would expect from a Hoover. The cord on this is a little shorter than my old one, but I can adjust to that. The long tube is amazing and the wheels are quiet and soft on the tile/hardwood. The front also got an overhaul and now with the new click mechanism to open/close the bag compartment it is much better (this was broken on my old vacuum), attachments are either hiding or clipped on better that on the old one.
So, overall, my old one was double what I paid for this and this was delivered for free! cannot complain!
This is definitely a buy. :)
