Rated 3 out of 5 by MsMirz Good price point for a reasonable canister vacuum
This is far from the best canister vacuum I've owned, however its ease of use and functionality outweigh the negatives. The power and suction is great - evidenced by needing to empty it every time I vacuum our 1700 sq ft carpet and laminate floor home - but I believe the nozzle head would be far more efficient collecting dog hair and dust if it contained a rotating brush like other models I've used. It's most effective removing hair from carpet when the hard-surface brush is engaged on the head. The four filters work well but are annoying to clean, again, almost after every use according to the "dirty light" indicator. The filters also don't stand up well to wash/re-use even though they're meant to - I've just ordered replacements after less than a year's worth of vacuuming weekly. Overall, its best features include being lightweight and easy to manoeuvre; onboard tools; retractable power cord (just a shame it's not longer); and being bagless (although it's a little messy to empty). For me, the pros of a canister vacuum's flexibility of use far outweigh an upright's. I'd recommend this model to anyone with primarily hard surface flooring in their home.

Rated 4 out of 5 by DCP Great little vacuum
We purchased this vacuum a few months ago when our upright wore out - was dubious about getting a bagless, but it is easy to empty and no problem with dust escaping. Only issue I have with this particular model is that I wish the cord was longer... 25 feet compared to the 17 ft. it has would be a big help for us.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Stumpy@O-town Work great
Is everything my wife was looking for...bagless and canister.
It works great and is lasting longer than any other vacuum has (apart from the good-old-day ones; remember sears even 15 years ago). It's worth the money for a family that runs it through the house every other day. It's light but powerful.
Just be careful closing the canister back up, the seal needs to be in right for the whole thing to work.
If mine broke today, I'd buy another one tomorrow.

I like this vacuum- good size for my apartment. It has sufficient suction power and I am very happy that it is bag less for being more environmentally friendly. I find that it is best on laminate floors, not especially awesome on carpets. The head fits under beds and chairs, though the level to change from having bristles out to no bristles gets caught on the bottoms of chairs. It was difficult to find parts for this vaccum in stores, hence why I am ordering from the internet. Overall- get it if you live in apartment without pets or carpets. Great brand.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jamie OptiClean is great
I have had a Zing for 2 years which was great on the tile but not as good on area rugs where the fur from my 3 cats collects. The OptiClean is far superior in picking up fur. It is lightweight,easy to use, gets under furniture, easy to empty dirt cup. To date I have not tried the attachments I also purchased.
I have moved my Zing to a rental condo where there are no pets and highly recommend that product too.

My sister in law bought one for me and I am surprised! I have lost a wheel and suction too. I had another vacuum for two years and it suddenly died on me so I figured it wast time to get another one but this one just crapped out on me after a few months. Problem is that she got it for me online so I have no idea what to.do.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mrs. Riverrat This is a really good little machine
There are many things to like about this vacuum, however I do have a few suggestions. The telescoping extension wand is a GREAT feature. But the hose could stand to be about 8" or 10" inches longer to reach tall cabinets for dusting. The suction is very good. I do wish the wheels were a little more "friendly" to move around while working. It is better than some, though. Overall I like this vacuum and hope it will last as long as the workmanship implies.
