After my Hoover died last year (it was 10 years old), in the middle of cleaning, I had to find a replacement ASAP. I shopped my local stores and couldn't find one in the price range I wanted, so I bought offline. I was hesitant at first, but once it was assembled, I went to town vacuuming. And let me tell you, this vacuum is great! Especially if you have pets!
My house is about 1800 sqft, and I had to empty the canister three times before the carpets were clean. You would have thought that I had accidentally sucked up both of my cats - that's how much fur this little Eureka picked up (sorry Hoover).
As for features, I have no complaints. I'm not as concerned with negatives that other reviewers have given it (the noise, the fan on the front, the short hose, the cord length); it's a vacuum after all, and it does just that.
I love the automatic safety feature that is built-in: If the filter gets too clogged, it will automatically shutdown to cool off. When it first happened to me, I freaked out a little, and thought it was defective - it certainly helps to read the manual before you use it. But, as recommended, I cleaned out the filter, let it sit for 30 minutes, and voila - back to vacumming I went. (A word of caution: if you use powdered carpet fresheners such as Arm and Hammer, Glade, PetFresh, etc, this powder will clog the filter eventually, and you will have scrape this stuff out the filter - kind of time consuming, but still worth the purchase!)
