This vacuum has been great, but..
This vacuum has lasted us about two years now. It worked wonderfully until it began to make this horrible sound from the beater brush area. I took the face off of the brush to reveal that one side of the beater bar had jammed up and melted the caster that it was on, this in turn has ripped up and melted the mount point, so not only do i need to find a new beater bar, i also need to find a new plastic mounting piece; which I believe is the entire bottom part of the vacuum. Overall a great vacuum, lets see how hard replacement parts are to find and to buy.

This thing has tons of sucking power and just everything about it is awesome. There are two things I will say though. 1: When you want to just use it to clean up a quick mess, you have to remove the whole extension chord to remove the wand so that the handheld starts sucking. That or just force the wand out but then its hard to get back in since the chord is in the way. 2: It is a tad heavy but that's not a deal breaker. Other than those two things, my wife and I love it.

We bought this vacuum on a friends recommendation. He suggested that we vacuum our rug with our old vacuum first, then use the LG. I was shocked. It was like it reached way down deep in the rug and pulled out the dust from the bottom. Really amazing.
Sometimes suction is so great that it stops the bristles from turning...we see this on our thin rugs.

Worth every penny! I used to replace vacuum cleaners every few months that could not hold up to daily demands. My household is filled with a Jack Russell Terrier, 2 large breed Newfoundlands and a husband who works in construction and this product easily switched from rugs, hardwood floors, furniture and window coverings. The extra long cord is perfect and the compression canister lets me clean longer before having to empty the canister. The allergy filtration is excellent. Highly recommend!
