As other reviewers elsewhere have noted, this machine is noisy - trust me, it is! However, I don't find this a great problem.
It seems to be fairly well constructed, not appearing flimsy, but of course time will tell.
The reality is though, it is not well suited to using attachments (such as they are anyway), it is just not really practical, and indeed is a drawback of most uprights. I have retained trusty Henry for that purpose (stairs, dado, skirting, coving etc.) One could try to undertake these tasks with this model, good luck in that!!
This was wholly understood on my part when purchasing, having done so, after seeing how well it performed. It has to be said, I could never have effected the level of carpet vacuuming with poor old Henry (always willing, ever reliable, but just doesn't quite cut the mustard). Whilst always my intention to have 2 x vacs (upright / cylinder) for aforementioned reasons, this may not be ideal for everyone, particularly with many homes these days being limited on storage space. Just don't run away with the idea this is a perfect alternative to a cylinder. I'm sure some will disagree with that - just my opinion!
You need to take care when dispensing of the collected dust etc from the cylinder (very easy to do, just slide the button), since you will be liable to being engulfed in a plume of dust.... The trick is (if at all possible), to immerse inside of the bin (assuming that's how you will empty) before sliding the button, so it is mostly (not wholly) contained.
Now the messy part...... I have I have only attempted this task once so far (although the recommendation is that it is carried out after every use), but filer cleaning. Oh my goodness, what an absolutely messy job. I strongly recommend if possible this be done outside, in a bucket of water, without wearing one's best bib and tucker!!
All in all, and in trying to be as objective as possible, this is an excellent value for money, effective vacuum cleaner.
Update: forgot to mention previously.... Another (becoming increasingly so) irritating design flaw is the power cord outlet location. It is right down low. The problem is that it tends to get caught underneath the machine, and of course (apart from annoying meaning having to lift to remove) could mean cable damage. The only way to sensibly overcome is to hold the flex in one hand (semi-taught away from the machine base) whilst manouvering the machine with the other hand. Effective - ish, but more than a little aggravating!
I found that the best way was to use both hands and push hard.
Though I have to say that it does pick up extremely well, lifting the pile as it goes.
