Top critical review

Two words for the refurbished one. Don't BUY. It arrived with both clips to attach the canister broken. So much for being certified. Now that I said that, let me talk about the actual unit.
It did pickup a lot of stuff. I can only imagine that one that was fully working would work even better. Because of the broken clips, it was extremely difficult of get any real use out of the unit other than vacuum. Because the clips did not work, I couldn't haul it up the stairs like it should be able to do.
I do agree that it is out of balance when you are using the hand nozzle. The whole unit wants to topple over. The cord is huge. I can almost do the entire downstairs area without having to plug and replug. The canister has both a top and bottom opening for ease of cleaning. The beater bar brought the nap up on the carpets. It got the bare floors cleaned. It has the suction that other reviewers have mentioned. Its also light and can be hauled up and down the steps.
For the money, I'll get a new one and hope the clips are not an issue. Given that you have to empty the canister frequently, this seems like it would
be a single point of failure in the design. I'm hoping that I got a lemon and a new one will work much better.
