I am a woman who HATES housework. I love this vacuum so much, I actually want to clean. Hardwoods & rugs never been cleaner! My wood floors almost look polished it cleans them so well. Wish the hose was a bit longer, but obviously it can't be and still be self-contained.
I loved mine so much, my daughter went out & got herself one. She loves hers, too, except it won't suck up cat liter unless you use hose.
