Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MrsE8 Great for hardwood floors
We recently purchased a home with dark laminate floors and I was advised not to use my steam cleaner on them. In researching vacuums I found this one highly recommended and couldn't beat the price, so decided to give it a try. So far, so good - it's bee a couple of months and I am very happy with the Mighty Mite. It gets up everything quickly and is easy to maneuver. I really like the long cord and lightweight - I can do my whole downstairs from one outlet.
On the negative side, I agree with some others that the cord storage placement on the bottom is both a space saver and a bit awkward, and a retractable cord would have been the best addition possible for this unit. I would gladly pay extra for that feature.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by thatguyno1likes Great little canister
This powerful little machine replaced a 15 year old Dirt Devil canister that finally bit the dust. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the Eureka outperformed the old Dirt Devil in every way. Attachments are good for hardwood floors and the suction of the vacuum is unparalleled in this price range. If you need a little vacuum that can go (and be stored) anywhere this is for you. Highly recommended!
My only minor gripe is that the blower setting wasn't nearly as powerful as the suction. But seeing as I bought this to suck, not blow air it's a minor gripe. Just wish if companies give you the option to use a vacuum as a blower that the blower has the same power. But maybe I was using it wrong...

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 777mom Mighty Mite Vacuum
This is my third one! I just purchased one about 6 months ago from HD. I came across it quite by accident. I had one or two about 30-some years ago. Great vacuum. I just purchased this second one for my son in college so he can easily store it and isn't dragging the upright disgusting dorm one around spreading germs everywhere. This is incomparable for the price-has terrific suction and is so easy to use and drag around. It will sit on a stair, you can put it away upright in a small space, etc. It is also easy to keep clean and change the bag. Really works!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by maddie great little vac/ home depot has it the cheapest!
very lightweight (i can carry it around easily) and great suction. use on both my carpets & wood floors. i did attach some self stick felt pads on vac head so doesn't risk scratching floors & that works well. . also comes with a crevice tool & very small brush. comes with a bag in canister & another in the box (nice surprise). home depot sells the refill bags. the cord is manual wind ,wraps under the canister. this is the 2nd one i bought for our vacation condo. the 1st one i bought (at walmart,then they stopped selling it) 1 year ago for our primary condo & it still works great, which is why i purchased another one. i don't own pets so i dont know how it would work on pet hair. i took a star off because wrapping/unwrapping cord under the canister is a little awkward.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sharlet So far, so good!
I've had this little vacuum for a few months now and have used it several times. I purposely purchased a canister instead of an upright because of the versatility. So far I have been very pleased. It has very good suction on floors and it even did a good job on my carpet. It does not have a beater bar like some more expensive models, but the beater bar only gets wrapped up with hair. Even tho the attachments and hose are made of plastic, they function very well and I especially like the compact size and light weight, which makes it easy to carry or move about. The bags are inexpensive and very easy to change. I was very pleased with the price and will probably buy this brand again when time comes to replace it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SurveyMom Best Vacuum I've ever owned
Wow - I was really skeptical about buying such an inexpensive vacuum. This has to be the best vacuum I've ever owned - including my Kirby. And a big plus is the bags are super cheap on Amazon. The attachments for my shop vac fit. Gone are the cobwebs and dust bunnies I couldn't reach. Who knew I'd become obsessed with getting all the dust off my entertainment center??? With the Mighty Mite it takes about 2 minutes to get the whole thing dust free. I would (and am) recommend this work horse.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FabDecorator Mighty powerful
This vacuum cleaner is an inexpensive way to get some trash up off your floors. I live in a 110-year old house that has no carpet, just hardwoods and rugs. This vacuum cleaner is awesome on my wood floors and for getting in corners and nooks where I need to get rid of the dust bunnies. It is NOT good for rugs or carpets. I plan to get a decent upright for those, My house is large, so I need both elements and can't seem to get them in one vacuum cleaner. The cord is really nice and long. The price was really nice too.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Tammy Okay for the price.
I purchased this to clean up dog hairs on the hardwood floors. It works okay, but it would be much easier to use if the hose were more flexible. It's a semi-hard plastic and is a little awkward to clean in the corners of a room. I also notice there are a lot of hairs stuck to the outside of the floor attachment (static cling) when the purpose is to collect hair on the inside, not the outside. It's okay for a quick clean up and has pretty strong suction. It also tends to get heated rather quickly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lakegirl Love it!
This is the 3rd Mighty Mite Canister Vacuum that I have purchased through the years and would purchase a 4th if needed! The other 2 are still very functional, only passed on to my children. Love it for tile & hardwood floors, better than a broom! Also wonderful for cleaning car & getting into hard to reach areas. Very happy with the product, have been using it for over 15 years!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Theodora Feels fragile, but works well!
This vaccum looks like a toy, and feels like one too! It's incredibly light and the plastic is VERY thin--it feels like it could easily crack. But. . . .it's incredibly handy and works well. I would just be careful not to bend it or bash it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jen1432 A great little machine!
This is the perfect small vacuum for our little home. It works extremely well on both wood and tile flooring, The attachments are adequate for our daily cleaning needs. the most important factor for me was that it was not heavy or cumbersome to manipulate through our narrow halls and stairwell.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hatetoclean Great for wood floors with one modification
This is a small lightweight vac that I purchased after reading lots of positive reviews. I like everything about the vacuum with the exception of the floor tool. The wheels scratched my dark wood floor until I wrapped them with fabric tape. To be extra safe I added a couple of small felt protective dots to the bottom of the attachment and have vacuumed happily ever since. I love that it is so light and has a long cord. Also works great on all our tile floors.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Leisa Super little vacuum at a value.
I have an in home cleaning business and had and older model Mighty Mite for 15 plus years, so when it finally bit the dust there was no hesitation as to which little vacuum I wanted. The suction is awesome, and the on board tools are convenient. Perfect for furniture, edges and bare floors. I will not be without one and the Home Depot value was a steal. I got it fast and in fewer days then was originally quoted and with FREE SHIPPING! I am very happy with my purchase!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by goodnewsgirl Superb little vacuum!
I was looking for a lightweight vaccum to use on the filthy attic flooring in our new home (probably not cleaned since house was built in 1923) and decided to purchase this. It is a fabulous little tool. Does a great job! I love the fact that it has bags which trap the dust and I don't get the blowback I do from the shop vac. Just wonderful!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ibuy789 A real good deal
This vacuum is a good value. The suction is better then expected. It is, however, rather noisy. It is easy to carry and, with the attachments easy to reach otherwise hard to reach places.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FLAgirl Powerful at a great price
I have used Mighty Mite vacuums for years. I have had four of these vacuums over many years. They are the best straight suction vacuums for the price. The only con would be the hose has a tendency to kink and the bags are hard to find in a store, so they have to be purchased online. I will continue to buy this vacuum as long as it is made.

I certainly recommend this product over the MUCH higher priced vacuums.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by knttr What I expected
I had another name brand canister vac with 12 amps so I had some idea of what to expect. It did not disappoint. It works fine so far. It has good suction and can be adjusted with the handle window. Just watch it because it will pinch you. It has a long enough cord to do a couple of rooms without having to unplug it. You do have to wind up the cord but for the price, you can't expect everything.

No frills vacuum. Does well on wood or area rugs. easy to use.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Itsdaking Not bad but not great
Overall this is ok. I recently switched all my floors to tile or vinyl and my upright vacuum just didn't do the trick. I was not too happy with the hose connections, the head and two pipe sections were easy to detach when getting stuck on furniture. This machine has good power but it doesn't work very well on carpet. Since I only have one area rug it's not a big deal. Storage takes up more space and the hose doesn't seem to know it's place.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Florida Great for wood floors!
For the cost, this is a great little vacuum for hard wood floors. Works great at picking up lint, pet hair, and sand. We have a German Shepherd and live by the beach so those things are a constant battle. The only real complaint would be I wish the cord were longer. Otherwise, a great purchase, especially for the money!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by MyNickname Not worth it
I'm sorry I wasted my money. It doesn't suck up anything with the floor attachment - especially on carpet. The only thing it's good for is getting along crevices without any attachment. It clogged several times the first time I used it. I bought it for my daughter - she doesn't like it either.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by NanaKan Works well but awkward to use.
I researched before I bought this vacuum cleaner. It does what it is supposed to do but is so awkward to use. I do not like the cord beneath the cannister. The hose is stiff and doesn't move easily.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by adk9girl Experience was good.
The price was competitive and the process was easy. It arrived quickly. Was I ever disappointed when I saw the vac, as I had one years ago and this new one is made so cheaply! I know, things are not made like they used to make them. Oh, well.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bill Very good vacuum for the money
It has outstanding suction and works well on my floors. It would be nice if it had a beater bar, but I knew that it didn't when I purchased it. I was really surprised at how well it worked. The only thing that I would change on it is the length of the cord. It could stand to be about 3 more feet longer Over all I think that it is a great value and it works very very well.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SARAHS This Little Mighty Might is surprisingly great!
I really don't write a lot of reviews. But I have to say because of such good reviews that's why I decided to go with this vacuum and I am very glad I did. I just moved and my last house had only hard wood floors. My new place has both carpet and really nice hard wood. I wanted something that worked for both, wouldn't scratch my nice floors and was a space saver. This little thing is perfect for me. I don't have plush carpet at all so this is ideal for that. I don't even have to adjust it from the hardwood setting when I use it on my carpet that's how much suction power this has, 12 amp motor is impressive seeing as most expensive vacuums don't have that much amp. Also underneath the vacuum you can rewind the cord, great feature because who wants to look at a vacuum cord really? For the price and quality this is such a great deal! The only reason this isn't rated excellent is because the cord is short which can be annoying. That being said get one for yourself you will love it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by bops76 wheel trouble but works great!
The only issue is that the wheels broke. They aren't the best quality, however, no one in my house is owing up to what happened,lol. Bottom line-awesome value. I go to the local vacuum store for bags and everytime I get them the man tells me that I have the best little vacuum. That speaks volumes to me. I've had it for over 4yrs at least. If you get a bagless-any brand, dirt goes straight to the motor and kills the engine. This little vacuum has the best suction yet.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jrkendall Surprisingly good
Got this primarily for use on tile and hardwood floors. Does exactly what we wanted; great suction; light weight. For the price, it's hard to beat.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LeeNJ A reasonably priced powerhouse! Great on my hardwood floors
This light weight vacuum is easy to use and so powerful. The grooves of my hardwood floors have never been cleaner, just like a new floor. The attachments make difficult areas easier to clean. Only one draw back, no easy storage for the hose and tube. This vac is well worth that small inconvenience.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RKCA great lightweight canister vacuum
I have wooden floors, carpeted floors, and carpeted stairs. I wanted a vacuum that could do a good job on all three and be lightweight. After a lot of internet research, I came to the conclusion that this was the best option. I received it today and tested it out.
- Lightweight: Yes (I could carry it up and down the stairs with one hand).
- Cleaned the wooden floors well: Yes (I liked the adjustable suction level).
- Cleaned the stairs well: Yes (the floor tool had a switch enabling a "rake" with teeth to come down and rake up the carpet for better cleaning; the long electrical cord and hose made it easy to go up and down the stairs).
- Cleaned the carpeted floors well: Adequate. I would've liked having rollers similar to uprights that enable deep "raking" back and forth on the carpet. The narrower floor tool required more passes on the carpet and therefore more time to clean.
All in all, a vacuum I would recommend. It comes with a crevice tool and an upholstery tool (which I have not yet tested). It would be great if Eureka could make a wider floor tool and one with rollers for deeper carpet-cleaning. The electrical cord does not auto-retract, but if manual cord winding keeps the overall product lightweight, I'm ok with that.
