I've had three vacuums in my life and this one was the worst. I've owned eureka brand before too and that vacuum was great and only died because I abused it. oops! I've only ever had the bag less ones, and this one was the only one I've ever had that clogged this quickly. And the clog was always in the tube so every time I would empty it, I would also have to clean out several other places to remove the constant clog build up. All the clogging also meant I had to empty it several times with every use and still didn't feel the room was clean. I'd go over it two or three times and get a significant enough amount of dirt every time. I got very frustrated with this vacuum and bought a new one about a month later. I like my new vacuum much more. I just feel they missed their mark on this one. Suction Performance It sucked ok when it wasn't clogged!
