Add me to the 'Black Friday' purchaser list tho I didn't wait in line for hours. I opted for a 4am store visit and if they had some left, I was buying one of these, if not, oh well, better luck next time.
Take caution when assembling your vacuum. There is one potentially trouble area fastening the elbow pipe. The elbow is made of clear, brittle hard plastic. The kind that snaps or cracks rather easily when cinching up screws. I question the use of this material - and its lack of rubber grommets to ease the tightening pressure. Be it as it may, careful and slow tightening should do the trick. I would have to think store returns favor this area in numbers higher than any other complaint.
As another reviewer mentioned, the canister latch is tricky, at best. Seeing how the other reviewers did not mention this, I wonder if the molding of the latch (or some other mechanism unseen) has extra flashing left behind from casting over time. I did eventual get my canister to latch and seal. The only other negative is the brush attachment is tiny. I wish it came with a bigger attachment. Perhaps I'll snoop around the Eureka site and see if any accessories are available.
Okay, enough with the nuances and share what I did like. Well, I like this powerful vacuum a lot.
The best testimony I can offer is do what I did. Sweep your floor with your old sweeper then break out the Eureka and redo your carpet. If this doesn't convinced you your 36.00 was (is) well spent, I don't know what will. Visual testimonies don't exaggerate.
If you're in need of a new vacuum, try to grab this before it goes back to regular price and even if you're not in need at the moment, buy one and stow it away for a later time. I doubt you'll find a sweeper this powerful at this price anytime soon - if ever.
