Customer Reviews

Air Excel Compact Canister Vacuum is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 36.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed I purchased the Uereka AirExcel Compact 990A Canister vacuum a year ago because there were no negative reviews but there are some flaws and I feel I should write a review. I am a petite person but the hose length is too short; unless you do not mind vacuuming hunched over. The hose, telescoping wands, and floor nozzle do not lock in place so they are constantly coming apart during vacuuming. The power cord could be longer but is adequate for a small apartment. The bagless dust cup is fairly easy to empty but you do have to pick off the pet fur. And the suction seems to be adequate and has not lost any power over the past year but I do not vacuum often because it is uncomfortable and so frustrating! Each customer is looking for what works best for them; what works for one, does not work for another but this vacuum did not fit my needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vacuum is compact and light with a sleek design. Vacuum is compact, lightweight, and easy to use. It is perfect for tile and flat floors. Laminate floors would be a easy to clean. I bought this one after having an older Eureka model that is upright and has not lost suction. Even small pebbles and pet hair is nicely absorbed. Rooms are cleaner and air is fresher. No worries for people with allergy problems. Not recommended for thick carpet because it doesn't come with the beater brush. Suction is strong and may work with a small flat rugs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect for hard floors We have hardwood and tile throughout our house and this vac is perfect. Light, quiet, and good suction. It comes with a swivel head that let's you lay the handle close to the floor to vac under furniture. Very easy and neat to empty. Auto cord retraction is very nice too, although I wish the cord was a few feet longer. Has a slot in the vac unit where you can slide the vac head into so it stands up when not in use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's early but so far so good For that price, and the free shipping, it was the best value. The suction is incredible - be careful of any loose fabric lying around - and it feels good to have a clean apartment on a budget. I hope that the process of cleaning the vacuum itself is as easy as it says. I'd love it if it was even smaller - easier to stow. For now, it's under my bed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Powerful and Easy to clean Love this vacuum cleaner. It's super powerful and light weight. Only problem is the cord is too short. I just move it from room to room and/or use an extension cord. I use it on hardwood floors and carpet. Didn't care for the floor brush included for my hardwood floors - so I use the floor brush from my old Eureka vacuum cleaner for those. Had to replace my old Eureka vacuum cleaner - it lasted over 30 years and I used it at least once a week. Other than the cord and floor brush I would definitely purchase this product. One other thing it's requires no bags and super easy to clean. LOVE IT!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Compact & Quiet Good overall machine for hardwood or other non carpeted floors. The provided floor attachment does not have rollers with a height adjustment so it's difficult to push it across a carpet or rug. Good suction, quiet operation,the compact size and light weight are the real benefits. Easy to hold in place while doing stairs too and with the included small furniture attachment it does a good job on carpeted stairs. The plastic hinge on the dust cup door is fragile and I have broken two so far but the cost to replace it is somewhat reasonable at around $10 for the dust cup with the door.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Eureka Airexcel Canister Vacuum I had a professional cleaning service for 30 yrs. This is the BEST canister I ever had. I used many kinds and this is the most convenient, easy to clean one ever. No bags a big plus. The suction is great. Lightweight. Can wash the canister (nice). Small canisters usually have plastic bearings so don't run past 30 min. or you can out-of-round the socket part and then it gets noisy (past vacuums). The price is very low. I bought one for my friend and she is delighted with it.
