Years ago I had a Sebo, I loved it but couldn't afford to replace it and fell for the Dyson hype. Hated the Dyson with a vengeance to the point of trying to kill it but it wouldn't die. Gave it away and tried a Vax air which was equally hideous. A Sebo is an investment worth making, it actually collects stuff off the carpet, wood floor or tiled floor, cleans right to the edges and all the tools are there just waiting to be used, so it's got a bag, big deal, at least it works well. I recommend this to anyone thinking of getting it, you'll love it because it works first time.
