Ranks 3rd among Consumer Reports upright bagless. Excellent suction, excellent emissions.
The only dings were "good" tool air flow, "good" on noise, and "good" handling.
Better suction than Dyson D28 (the HumVee of vacuums), and significantly better suction than the "ball" Dysons. Excellent on pet hair.
Actually it has better suction than all of the tested bagless vacs.
It still suffers from the 1 major downfall of bagless, the cloud of dust when emptying.
Consumer Reports lists it as "recommended" and probably would have given it a "best buy" rating if it weren't for the $500 list price (which WOOT solves).
I almost replaced my (hated) Dyson D28 with this model. It was one of my 2 final choices.
