Rated 5 out of 5 by MalayasJima I borrowed one and then bought one!
The best way to know how something works is to borrow one! This vacuum did the most important thing for me-It did not wear me out. I have Fibromyalgia and my old vacuum (which was 10 years old) was very heavy and I made it through vacuuming my bedroom and then had to sit down and rest so I could do my living room. Each of these rooms are the biggest in my house and I could not get past either room without resting when using my old vacuum. This vacuum is so light weight and easy to maneuver that I was able to do the whole house without a struggle. I have two big dogs and three cats so the pet hair is a constant challenge. This vacuum is so nice that when I realize I have to vacuum I actually get excited about it and don't want anyone else to vacuum.

Rated 2 out of 5 by CNL0827 Motor burned out within 8 months
I initially loved this product and it worked beautifully for the first few months. Unfortunately after about 8 months, the motor burned out. The cost to repair outweighed purchasing a new vacuum. This is not my first LG product but it was the first vacuum. I did not elect to purchase another LG vacuum. I wish repair and service were more accessible and reasonable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TonyinDallas Great vaccuum
I've never had a nice vaccuum before i bought this one. I have a dog also so I need a strong vaccum. I found it to be effective on carpet and on bare floors. I've only used the pet care attachment once, and although I wasn't blown away by the performance of it, it did pick up most hair. Btw it was used on a sofa. All in all I'd reccommend it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Dawn This is the WORST vacuum ever
I have only had this vacuum for 5 months and it does not work at all. It always overheats and stops working. It had great suction for the first week now there is not even enough to use the hand tools. The worst investment I have ever made.

With a golden retriever and a lab in the house this vacum works great! Picks up more than ever before - so glad I bought it!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Scothania Vacuum Motor quit in one week
I liked the features and the maneuverability. The quality of the build was just average. The motor completely quit working after one week. Well engineered but needs a different motor. Also is a little loud.

Rated 5 out of 5 by kfilly Great Vacuum
I recently purchased two other LG vacuums for my house. I have an LUV400 that use on my first floor, and that vacuum is incredible. However, I feel it is too big and bulky to carry upstairs every other day to vacuum my carpets. I also have LCV 800 that use in my basement which has hard tile floors. I am very pleased with how that vacuum performs as well. When I was looking for a compact upright vacuum to use/store upstairs, I did not have to look any further than LG. I just got this vacuum the other day. I like reviewing products right away, and then updating my review as I continue to use the product. This vacuum comes just about ready to use right out of the box. All that was needed to assemble the vacuum was to mount the handle onto the extension wand and attach the house to the bottom of the handle. Both of those components simply click into place without tools. The design was so easy to figure out that I did not have to even read the directions. As far as using the vacuum, it is very simple to operate. I will take a moment to talk about some of the ergonomics of the vacuum. The power button and brush roll power switch are located on the top of the body. Both controls are large easy to reach buttons. The height adjustment is a large dial located on the front of the vacuum. The dial is easy to turn, but I do not like this feature as much as I do the foot control used my other LG vacuum. The wand/handle is a telescopic. The vacuum can be made very short for storage by locking the handle in the lowest position (roughly 35-1/2" tall). When the handle is fully extended for use, the vacuum is close to 44" tall. There are a couple of height settings in between. There is a button on top rear portion of the handle that allows the vacuum cleaner handle length to be adjusted. Also, the handle becomes a part of the cleaning wand. There is a release button that is located on the top of the vacuum right next to the handle/wand assembly. There are two filters that are both easily accessible. One is a foam pre-filter that is located in the top portion of the dust container. The other is a HEPA filter located at the front exhaust. Last, the vacuum is light weight, and it easily pushes across my carpet. Now, I will talk about the performance of the vacuum. This vacuum is powerful. It picks up long dog hair from my medium pile carpet in a single pass. The compression feature really works to compact the hair that the vacuum picks up. The vacuum is fairly quiet. The bin is a smaller version of my other upright. It is easy to remove from the vacuum and empty. The wand tools have strong suction, and they are fairly easy to remove/use. The attachment hose is held in place by a plastic clip. The dust brush and crevice tool can be stored on the vacuum, but there is no place to store the pet hair brush. Overall, I think this is a great vacuum! I highly recommend it!
