I had a total of four GE canister vacs before giving up on this model. It was given a good Consumer Reports rating in 2005 only, which is what I based my purchase on. Although the machines were delightful in the beginning - lightweight, excellent cleaning ability, attachments easy to use - they develped problems within a short period. The lightbulb blew, and/or the suction gave out. Two models developed motor problems, and each model seemed too hot to the touch after a few minutes of operation. For about fifty dollars more, I'm going with a Hoover Windtunnel Bagless Canister, and I expect great results. (It is a Consumer Reports Best Buy, consistently).
