Wish I read the Reviews First
I would not buy this product again nor would I ever recommend it. I was going to buy the Abode 1400W version and then thought this 1600W has to be more powerful. Not sure what the 1400W is like but this 1600W vacuum cleaner is shocking. IT DOES NOT VACUUM. I have a low pine carpet and this vacuum cleaner hardly does the job. I had to pull off the head many times and "spot vacuum" just to pick up even light weight particles. Will be looking into returning the item if I can. Don't make the same mistake!

Rubbish!
Agree with the other comments, this product is absolute rubbish!
It has very poor suction - which gets worse as it travels down the pipes that do not seal. (It wouldn't even pick up some styrofoam crumbs!)
I hadn't even used mine enough times to half fill the canister and it burnt out and tripped my power!
Tried it again about a week later - it ran for approximately 1 minute and did the same thing.
Although I must say, I took it back to the store without a receipt and they gave me a credit (for the lowest advertised price of the unit) and I exchanged it for a Piranha unit which works fantastically ($116 priced unit).
Hope this review helps, the only advice I can give you if you decide to buy the unit anyway, is definitely keep your receipt, because the lowest price was $47.

Worst Ever
worst purchase ever. don't ever buy it or u will be sorry for it as i am.
Poor quality, can't pick anything from floor. broom is a better option then this cleaner. hard to clean it and starting making loud noise in less than 6 months. takes for ever to clean carpet with it.

Very cheap, and you get what you pay for. Suction is mediocre, build quality is poor. There are gaps in just about every join. For the money you would be better off buying a decent quality hand vacuum or looking for a bagged cleaner second hand.
