Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 16 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by I love that the vacuum is easy to use and is a central vacuum sytem. My previous home had a central vacuum system and when I purchased a new home I was very pleased that the builder offered an option of a central vacuum system. I find that the system is user friendly and it is very easy to empty the debris pail. This model does not have a bag which is also convenient and cost effective. The vacuum system is powerful and makes it easy to keep my floors clean. Also, since the dirt is collected outside of my home, it helps my allergies. September 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by VX550 The accessories. Not happy with quality kink proof vacuum hose kinks and collapse if you set on it stopping vacuum suctions, Plastic attachment one pcs. broke floor hardwood sweeper not adjustable poor suction. I like the canister the suction is good. I think a upgrader accessory kit would make it a great system. I would not buy another unit for that reason only. Bruce September 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great features. We are extremely happy with this product. This has been the best home improvement that we made to our house. We especially like the sweep inlet, which we installed in the kitchen. We highly recommend this system. Just a note: be aware that you will need a 20 amp circuit. September 5, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by What good is it if there are no replacement parts it's a good unit, worth every penny UNTIL you find out that the only thing that wears out on the unit, the motor brushes, are no available to purchase and you have to spend a little over 50% of the price of the whole unit to replace the motor instead of 2 brushes that would cost a few dollars. Wish I had know this when i got the unit :( June 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Product was easy to install. Didn't realize how weak the old unit it replaced was until we used the new one. Unit has great look. Easily adapted to the existing system. Easy to install, one bracket, entrance and exit tubes, two wires to connect and plug in wall socket. May 11, 2014
