Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 19 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by I loved this vacuum until it broke. I purchased this vacuum cleaner because it was the most powerful vacuum that would fit in the small cabinet under my kitchen sink. I used it daily to clean up crumbs off the hardwood floors in my kitchen and dining room. It survived one summer vacuuming up sand in my hallway that was tracked in from the beach. The vacuum did not make it through my five year old son's "help" emptying the canister. The plastic pins that keep the lid on snapped and cannot be repaired. Unfortunately an airtight seal is necessary to have any suction, so after a year the vacuum is kaput. I am annoyed, but I might buy the Eureka Air Excel vacuum again. January 7, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AWESOME My first bag-less vacuum. I have long hair and a cat, between the two of us there is always a challenge, but the canister is easy to open and empty and never loses suction. I also have limited storage space, and this little guy is great, so compact. Highly recommend if you are looking for a compact vacuum at an affordable price. January 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LOVE this vacuum! This is a GREAT vacuum! The suction is phenomenal and there is an adjustment thing to lessen the amount of suction if you want to clean your blinds or drapes. The vacuum is very small and lightweight but packs a lot of power. The only improvement I can think of is that I wish it came with the Eureka Power Paw, which is a small rug attachment with a revolving brush. But as luck would have it, the Power Paw from my old Eureka fits perfectly and works way better with this model than it did with my much more expensive, bigger and way heavier old Eureka canister. I would recommend this vacuum to anyone. Even a child could easily do a good job with it. Oh, also it has a retractable cord, which I like. September 22, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great for an office I purchased this vacuum to replace the old one in my office. It works great! I was a little worried because I have purchased cheap vacuums before and they are just that - cheap. This little thing sucked up everything! There are two things that I wish it had. The first would be wheels on the tip of the head by the roller. Since I have a small office this isn't a huge deal, if I had to vacuum a home I would be a little more irritated. The second would be holders for the accessories! Again, because I have an office I rarely use those and they will be fine tucked away with the cleaning supplies. July 28, 2015
