We have a multi cat household. We have carpet in the bedrooms and tiles and rugs elsewhere. This vacuum cleaner is, without a doubt, one of the best I've owned. I have to vacuum each day and it breezes through the house beautifully. Excellent value.
Purchased in January 2021 at Harvey Norman for $499.00.
Excellent performance, great price.
Excellent suction. I have 3 dogs and it picked up all their fur from the carpet. The cyclonic/filter set up performs strongly, captures all the fine dust. Runs reasonably quietly, long cord, good accessories. Would recommend it over other name brands.

Poor quality, Low suction
I purchased this vacuum only to find when I opened the box a bent hose and the turbo head would not sit flat at all was very stiff and when I tried to vacuum and I had to keep stepping on it every few seconds to get it to stay down to vacuum it was a loosing battle. Then the hose would totally bend on the bent section of the hose and stop suction. So I returned and got a replacement I could have got a refund but thought it could have been a one off. I was only to find the turbo head is still staying up on the new 2nd vacuum and I'm having to st...and on it every 5 to 10 seconds to keep it down and suck, not as stiff as the first head but still wanting to stay up like there's not enough suction to pull it down and the plastic join is just stiff. They said it would loosen up with use. But shouldn't a product work straight away from purchase not wait to see if it loosens up. I'm only persisting with this vacuum as the head is the only one that glides easily (when it stays flat) over triexta carpet. I believe the recycled plastic has compromised the quality and it's way over priced at $599. If the head dosent loosen up after the next few vacuums then I'll be returning it again for a full refund. It's suction at full is only half that of my Miele that I have given to my daughter due to the heads would not glide over my carpet with ease. My recommendation is don't buy this product. Update 22/09/20: tried to vacuum with it again and it's was a missing battle, hubby the builder had a go and after 30 seconds said return it. The head, plastic hose is so stiff it just makes the job impossible. The vacuum is not cleaning the carpet as the head won't stay flat. I returned to Godfreys Bathurst and got a full refund. This product is made from 60% recycled plastic and it has made a poor quality product. Electrolux discontinue this product please I've had two and both are unusable what are the odds of that.

What a marvellous surprise
Bought this vacuum cleaner today after owning a Dyson barrel for 10 years.
We have carpet and tile floor.
After an easy assembling of parts I tried it out on a rug that was vacuumed two
My wife and I could not believe the amount of pets fur and dirt that had been left behind
by the Dyson.
No more Dyson for me or probably my family as well.

Finally, a vacuum cleaner that actually works.
*I wrote this same review for the Dyson DC54, since I'm basically comparing two products*
This will be a bit of a story, but bear with me, because it is 100% true. Or otherwise scroll to the bottom for a really quick quantitative summary of my thoughts.
So roughly 20 years ago, my parents bought a gigantic yellow Electrolux vacuum cleaner - one of those with the disposable paper bag filtration systems. I don't really remember much because I was very young, but every spring clean since I can remember, I would vacuum all two stories of the hous...e (we have a rich, cream carpet) while my sister would mop the floors. This invincible behemoth of a vacuum cleaner lasted us until somewhere around 2016-2017 when we ran out of the paper bags (we kept buying refills, but by this time we figured it was time to get a new machine. The Electrolux actually still worked). We heard all about this fancy new brand, and everybody seemed to love it, so we figured we'd give it a try. And, you know, Dyson is kinda just one of those things you want to try. Assuming it'd last another 15-20 years, which in hindsight is a bit silly, we forked out somewhere around $800 - an investment - for a Dyson DC54. I remember we were so excited to try out the new machine, due in no small amount to its unique and intriguing design. At first it was ok, maybe a little less power than we were expecting, but now, after a few years, it hardly even picks up visible lint/bits and pieces and dust from the carpet. I also keep hearing a whistling sound around where the removable cartridge connects with the body of the machine like escaping wind, and the cleaner barely even left those triangular streaky patterns on the carpet that the old vacuum would. After cleaning 8 large rooms + staircase, the cartridge isn't even half-full. Before we bought our new Electrolux Pure C9, which I will talk about in a moment, I also found myself missing the old disposable bags, because the removable cartridge was difficult and finicky to open and clean, and I'd have to go at it with a brush. So about a week ago, we went out and bought a new Electrolux Pure C9 Animal, but I put the chore off for a week (who likes vacuuming, let's be real) so I finished vacuuming right before I wrote this review. I had to pause and empty the cartridge 4 times because there was so much dust the Dyson wasn't picking up (I vacuumed just a week after going through with the Dyson). There is so much to say. The cartridge empties instantly - it's easier to remove from the body, and it's also a simple shape so opening the bottom instantly empties all the dust into the bin, where the needlessly complicated Dyson design actually needed me to tap it a few times, have a brush handy, and also a really big bin so when it finally flopped open it could catch the dust (guess cartridges are good after all; it was just poor design from Dyson). And even then, the dust would still get onto my hands and pants because of how awkward the process was. I had to do it in the backyard every time, but now I can just empty it into the kitchen bin. The electrical cord is much longer so I can actually do the stairs in just ONE go, the vacuum itself is so much more powerful so that the cartridge fills up with dust amazingly quickly, the handheld part is easier to extend and collapse, and the handle for the machine is actually a proper handle. Sounds like an odd comment to make, but the handle for the Dyson doubled as the part that fixed onto the mouth of the cartridge, so every time I lifted it, I could hear so much air escaping. Whoever came up with that design needs to be fired. The best part, though, is that we paid half the price that we did for the Dyson. Come back in another 15 years, I guess, and I'll let you know what becomes of this new Electrolux. I honestly reckon that if my two purchases with Dyson are reflective of their quality of products, this hype going around is bound to flop. All they do is charge more for less. I feel scammed.
