I bought this about a year ago, after having an upright for years that I found too big and awkward. I only have wood floors, so I didn't need a beater bar. I have always preferred canisters to uprights, because they are easier to handle, and to use attachments. I read the reviews, and this one was rated well. The handle is telescoping, so it's easier to store. The handle hooks to the bottom of the vacuum so it's easier to store, and carry around. I have found after having this for a year, that it's sturdier than i thought it was going to be. The tube is thinner than more expensive canisters, but that hasn't been a problem. The cord re-winder still works great. It has great suction on floors, and I have used it on area rugs and it has worked well. The only thing I don't like is the size of the vacuum bag. It is quite small, so you have to check it quite often to make sure it's not full. They don't sell them in the store, so I have to make sure I order them from this site, and get enough at one time. That's probably because of the space that the cord re-winder takes up. There was only one attachment, a crevice-brush tool that stores on the bottom of the vacuum. I have found that it has fallen off and been lost on more than one occasion. I wouldn't store it on the bottom, I would put it elsewhere.
For a fifty dollar vacuum, I was surprised of the quality and suction power of this vacuum. I have been happy with it, and if it is taken care of, the bag checked, and you realize that this is mainly to be used for floors, you should be happy with this vacuum.
