Rated 5 out of 5 by Val95605 Great little vacuum
Just got the PowerForce vacuum and I am very pleased. We only have area rugs in our house that need vacuuming, but this gets them clean and removed all the cat hair. It was amazing how much this little vacuum cleaned up in such a small area.

This is the best little vacuum that I have ever owned.
I love the attachments, I love how light it is and best of all I love to finally be able to get my throw rugs cleaned and looking great. I've had battery operated little vacuums and other brands of electric and did not like the job they did. This little vacuum is powerful, easy to clean and a joy to use.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Nursetrodamus Terrible!
I have had nothing but problems with this product since I bought it about 2 months ago. The ONLY possible "benefit" of this vacuum is that I never have to empty the cup. Now let me tell you why: the dirt/dust/hair never gets sucked all the way into the cup, it builds up in the hose and where the hose connects. To vacuum 2 rooms, I have to stop about 3 times to detach the hose, pull out all the floor dirt with my fingers, then turn the whole vacuum upside down to remove the dirt from where the hose connects. Needless to say, this is a messy and disgusting process. I am a clean person, who vacuums regularly and I have 1 short haired dog; I don't have the vacuuming needs of the world on my shoulders. This product cannot handle regular cleaning, or even light cleaning. I have tried again and again to figure out how the engineering of this vacuum has failed so miserably, but there is no apparent reason that the dirt can't get sucked up. This is the worst product I've purchased in a long time. If you want your floors to be clean, this is NOT the product for you. :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by tmmaston89 Don't be fooled by its size or the number of amps this thing has
This cute little machine may look small but it cleans about just as well as a full size 10 amp or 12 amp vacuum. Keep in mind the number of amps a vacuum has nothing to do with its cleaning performance. I have a Hoover Windtunnel vacuum but I bought this machine as an everyday quick pickup machine since my Bissell 3 in 1 broom vac I got 10 years ago is starting to give up on me. I was surprised on how much this thing picked up being only 7 amps. This unit will be perfect for when I need to do quick cleanups without having to get the full size machine I have out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Donna2 WOW! What a GREAT machine!
I recently purchased this product for our RV, as I was looking for something compact and lightweight to leave in the 5th wheel.
I decided today to try it out in my house just to see how it would work.
I have to say I am TOTALLY impressed with this vacuum!
I never considered myself a excellent housekeeper, I'm more "It's time clean when nothing else is on the schedule" type of person. But i do manage to vacuum a few times a week.
After using the PowerForce Compact today, I guess I should have been vacuuming everyday. I was amazed at the amount of dirt and crime that came out of my carpet and upholstery.
I showed my husband the results and his comment was "well maybe it's time to retire that Eureka and use this in the house".
I'm thinking I might just have to go out and but another one just so I can have one in the house and one in the 5th wheel.
Wow what a great machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jan This machine has thw WOW factor
I have a Kenmore power vac but it is heavy, as I am getting old I needed something lighter to clean both floors. My power-vac is now now in the closet to stay. I have never had a vacuum to work as well. I have three cats, I never could believe how much cat hair was in my carpets, I had vaccumed two days before I got my Bissell and my carpets look like I had the shampooed. I am so happy with my new sweeper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Julesagain Great little lightweight vacuum for carpet
I got the 3130, which is nearly identical to this one, on sale at Walmart on the recommendation of a friend. I posted a picture of this cute little vacuum on Walmart, "isn't this silly" kind of thing, and she wrote right back to BUY IT NOW IT IS AWESOME ON PET HAIR. I did, and wore it out for the three years I had it, with 2 heavily shedding dogs and a cat. I never expected to get such good performance on pet hair from such an inexpensive vacuum. I was crushed that they didn't have the same one, but then this model came along that is nearly exactly the same, so I bought two, one for each floor. The only drawback is that the dusting brush no longer comes WITH the vacuum, you have to buy it separately. Sadly, the old one got tossed with the dead vacuum. It doesn't really work on carpeted stairs, so I have to use my ancient canister for that. But you can't beat it for regular carpeting, especially if you have pets.

Rated 1 out of 5 by henderson42 Horrible Vacuum- even for the price
Vacuum died within a month. Stop suction and did not pick up any thing. Should not buy if you expect it to last longer than a month.
