I bought this vacuum, based on good experience with previous models. Several things disappointed me during/after the very first use: 1) The container is not designed as well, as the ones found in older models. There are chamber walls poorly located and collecting tough-to-clean pockets of dust. Especially bad is the wall facing the front of the container (it's connected to the filter chamber). The way it's made now allows pet hair, carpet fuzz and other particles to build up high in the container and stick there. Opening the bottom of the container and dumping everything easily is no longer an option. Now I need to open also the top of the container and pull the stuff, stuck in there, by hand. 2) This model uses a cylindrical air filter. Compared to the usual flat squarish filter, this one allows for more dust to get into the gaps and sneak past the filter. It's also not as easy to clean. 3) This model costs as much as higher models with more features. Overall it's disappointing to see decrease in performance (again, compared to older models) Thanks to Walmart's delivery/return policy, I had no problems getting and (unfortunately) returning this vacuum.
