It overheats, hardly any suction, pretty crappy vacuum overall, considering the description. I can hoover 2 rooms tops at a time & only as long as I'm quick. After about 20 emails flying back & forth they sent me a replacement, I haven't even taken it out of the box yet & just deciding whether to send it back & demand a refund. Really NOT a good vacuum, works ok for a few weeks then packs in with all the previous problems, over heating, power switch not working properly, only fills up on one side. Think again before buying, you really do get what you pay for here.
