Customer Reviews:
  • Good little vacuum
    This is a great light weight vacuum that works really well on wood floors as well as carpet. The only problem with it is the handle. It is very flimsy. I had another one several years ago and the handle finally broke. I did buy another one since it works well otherwise, but I wish Eureka would work on the handle part and make it more durable....more info
  • Best product I've bought here
    I have all hardwood floors except for my two bedrooms. I am retired and live alone, so not a whole lot of dirt. But, this is the handiest little floor care product I have ever had. Light weight, easy to manipulate, great on my one area rug. Always hated draging out the big vaccum to do the area rug. The absolutely only thing I would change, would be to have a longer cord, but not a real big problem. Had a "Swiffer" before, this picks up much more. And I have a cat. The cat hair is no longer a problem. The brush for the area rug is wonderful. Cannot say enough good about it. Love it, love it, love it!!!Eureka 166DX Boss 2-in-1 Lightweight Bagless Upright Vacuum Cleaner...more info
  • The best Stick Vac!
    This Stick Vac works so well that we bought two! It has excellent suction and does not kick the dirt back at all! It's extremely lightweight and works great on small messes or for the entire room! Great for when you don't feel like hauling out your big vaccuum! And it's small enough to keep in your broom closet!...more info
  • Inexpensive, effective, handy - Going for my second!!
    I bought this vacuum 7 years ago when I first moved into my dorm. I used it until I moved out of the dorms, then I passed to a friend. That friend and I ended up married and it came back into our household. I have used it on floors and carpet and it does a great job on both. It fits nicely under the cabinetry in the house and is so easy to get out, clean up, and put away. It sure beats digging out the dyson!! I have not found anything that it wouldn't pick up. Even works awesome on pet hair!!
    I have never had a problem with it and am only buying a new one because we got a puppy and I left the filter on the floor after cleaning it off - and the dog ate it!! So I am just going to let this guy retire and get a new one!! Worth every penny and then some...more info
  • Excellent Vacuum
    This is an excellent vacuum - especially for the price. I have a studio apartment that has a combination of wood flooring, tile as well as carpet and this little wonder handles it all. Easy to operate, empty and store. The suction this thing has is amazing! I have to hold my foot on the area rugs to keep them in place while I vacuum them. A little over six months now and no regrets over this purchase at all....more info
  • Does Exactly What It's Supposed To!
    I have had this vacuum for two years and am going to buy another one for the family room/downstairs, so I can have one on each floor. A few years ago I had rotator cuff surgery and found it impossible to push the large "beast" of a vacuum cleaner we used, and it was also too hard to carry it up and down stairs. I purchased a Bissel Stick vac for the upstairs, and found out it wasn't anywhere as good as this Eureka Boss.

    I found the Eureka Boss at WalMart and purchased it. It does exactly what it's supposed to do. If people are unhappy with this stick vac, it's because they are expecting it to clean heavy carpets with naps; a job which should be done by larger vacuum cleaners. If you understand that this stick vac is mainly for tiled or hardwood floors, or carpets with very low naps, you won't be disappointed.

    No, it won't get stuff right up against the wall. For that, I use the Bissel Stick vac (which isn't worth a hoot for actual vacuuming of any type, but I keep the crevice tool on it and use it along baseboards, where it does a decent job).

    However, the Eureka is fabulous on barewood, and it gets up all the hair from my two labs and miniature pinscher. Downstairs, in the family room, we have a carpet similar to those you see in businesses or offices. It has no nap, and the Eureka does a fantastic job getting all the dog hair and hay and straw we drag in from the barn. I rarely use the big beast any more, as the Eureka is so lightweight that it makes vacuuming a dream!

    The only drawback, as others have mentioned, is the short cord. I have a large house with huge rooms, and sometimes have to move it to three different outlets, but I can live with that. The dust cup doesn't hold too much, but that's part of the reason this vacuum is so light weight. As long as you empty the dustcup this vacuum will do the job!

    If you have bare floors and pets, this is absolutely the stick vac for you! And it will get those dust bunnies and eat them up!...more info
  • Good for quick cleanups...
    I bought this last year when we were putting our house up for sale and I needed to make the house look "perfect" every time we went out. It was great for doing a quick clean up on the carpets, vinyl and stairs. In our new house I still use it on the stairs and for quick clean ups when I don't feel like lugging out the big vacuum. It won't replace your regular vacuum, but for making the place look good when you don't have the time for a full cleaning, it does the job quite nicely!...more info
  • Eureka SticVac
    My aunt had one of the earlier models that broke a belt. I replaced the belt, and then the handle came out and she couldn't get it back in...she is crippled and can't do some things like this. I told her that I would get her a new one because she loved the other one and it just had gotten old. Money being a factor, I got on Amazon and did a lot of searching, and finally found the Eureka 169 Stic Vac. Most places, this vac sells for around $59.00. I got the Amazon credit card,on which I got a $30.00 credit for my first purchase for just using the card, and my total cost for the vac was just over $11.00 shipping and all! She is just overjoyed..since it it light enough for her to handle, and it does an amazing job with pet hair and small rugs (big ones too). It is so easy for her to handle...so I bought myself one also..and I found mine without a discount for around $30.00 including shipping on Amazon. Recommend it wholeheartedly for anyone who needs a small, light vac for quick spills and such....more info
  • GREAT! A must have for everyone.
    This is the best little vacuum that I could ever tell you about. It's light weight and very poerful. I have (3) of them one for up stairs and one for down stairs and one for a back up if anything happens to the other one. Yep thats how great these things are. Try one you will love it!...more info
  • not even as effective as a dustbuster. :(
    Not even as effective as a dustbuster. Very dissappointing. Returned for full refund....more info
  • eureka 169b vacum
    I love my Quick up Vacuum. It is so light weight and easy to maneuver. I would defiantly recommend this product to my friends and family....more info
  • this thing rocks!
    I wasn't sure about this vacuum being that I am a cleaning junkie. I have tried many vacuums and been dissapointed in the past. From swiffer vacuums to stick ones, to hand held... you name it, I have tried it. Being a mother of four with four pets, I am always looking for something to make my house work a little easier. Aren't we all??? This is it folks. This thing works like no other. It quickly picks up dirt and debris both off carpet and hardwood/tile floors. I was shocked how this thing performed on carpet. Don't get me wrong, by no means will this replace your vacuum. But durring the week when I need to quickly get the little pieces of lint and hair off the carpets before going to work, this thing delivers. Picks up kitty litter, cherios, cat/dog hair, dirt etc. Works great also on stairs with out lugging the big vac up and down. I love that it is cordless and you are not constantly plugging and unplugging to outlets. For cordless this thing has great suction. I was shocked and very happy to say the least. If anybody says this vac does not work, they must have a faulty one. I purchaed this at Target, it rang up for $7.84, again I was shocked. Must have been on clearence or misspriced. I am going back to Target today to see if I can scarf up on another one of these babies. I would buy another one though at regular price too, worth every penny. Another thing that is an added bonus, you can keep it on the charger constantly so it is always ready when you need it. I had a shark one that specifically specified not to keep it on the charger to only charged when the battery was just about dead. Well what good is that?? When you need it and you have to wait again for it to charge??? Stupid. Not this one, it clearly states to leave it on the charger so it is always ready. Sorry for the long review, I just can not say enough good things about this machine. Buy one today if you have pets and kids!! ...more info
  • Won't keep up with my toddler's messes
    I needed this stick vac to quickly clean up the constant trail of cheerios, dried up rice and noodles under the dining room table, and the sand and yard debris that is gets tracked across my linoleum floor. It just can't handle it. The base doen't sit up high enough off the floor to get over cheerios, it just pushes them around. Rice usually flies goes in and flies right out again. After I'm finished vacuuming sand I can still feel it on my feet as I walk over the area. I'm giving it 2 stars because it does great at picking up cat hair, and for vacuuming the small area rugs I have in front of my doors. It's also just a flick of the button to switch between hard floor and carpet cleaning. The filter is easy to remove and it rinses clean in warm water, although it can be a bit tricky to get it back in to the vacuum. ...more info
  • Good for apartments!
    I bought this to keep my apartment tidy. I have tile floors and some carpeting - but nothing thick.

    This works great. It's a little noisy but quieter than others I have used. It doesn't take up much room to store, and emptying it is pretty easy.

    The only downside is sometimes it is hard to get the detachable pocket for dirt to snap back in. But nothing too damning. ...more info
  • Unfreakin Believable!
    I originally had the Swivel Sweeper. Worked for 6 months and I cleaned the brushes regularly. It puttered out this week. I went to WalMart and purchased this for just over $25. WOW! I have 2 cats and a big littermaid litterbox. It not only got ALL the hair off my short piled wall to wall carpet but it rivals my other vaccum that I use for regular vaccuming. This is half the price of Swivel Sweeper and picked up 4 times as much stuff. The power this little, lightweight machine packs is unfreakin believable! Use it on vinyl flooring or your carpet. It didn't leave a thing on any of my carpets. I'm amazed!...more info
  • the best little broom
    If you want a small very light weight easy to use vacuum-broom this is it.
    As a vacuum it has a powered brush, push a button and brush turns off and machine becomes a great broom for hard floors. Everyone should have one.
    As a joke, I told wife it was a Valentine present. Turns out every time she uses it she reminds of the great gift I gave her!

  • A powerful little cleaner, however so very light., It picks up!!
    I got this little cleaner for my step-dad who has heart problems and cannot lift over 15 pounds. This little sweeper he can handle with ease, and me being the caregiver to my mother and step-dad this little powerhouse helps me out as well. I looked at alot of sweepers before deciding on this great cleaning tool, and I know that you cannot go wrong with this winner!! It is easy on the hands too....more info
  • Electric Broom
    Wonderful product, has great pickup abiltiy and very lightweight. Does a very good job for a small vacuum. Highly recommend. Excellent service....more info
  • Fantastic Value!
    I am thrilled with the performance of this small lightweight vacuum. It cuts my sweeping and pickup time in half in comparison with a broom. I didn't purchase this product expecting it to replace my clunky canister vacuum for carpeting, just to do a quick light cleaning, and it surprisingly does a very good job. The filter can be clogged with dust bunnies and fine dust and still have good suction. I remove the collected debris, empty the cup and few taps of the filter outside the house or inside a small plastic bag and it's ready to go again.
    For the price, this little vacuum is a great value for under $50!...more info
  • Great for Small Spaces
    We got this to use in our 32 ft. motorhome. It does the job on the small carpet areas and gets in between the furniture easily with its small head. I use a small brush to remove the dust and fuzz from the catcher area when I empty it.
    This doesn't take much storage space which was important to us.
    Minor complaint: the catch that slides up and down to remove and replace the dust catching chamber is difficult to move....more info
  • Eureka Quick-Up
    These little vacuums are the greatest thing since sliced bread. For people like me who can no longer lift heavy things it is just ideal for doing my cleaning.' I am amazed at the pick-up power it has. I highly recommend it for anybody with sore shoulders and neck or sore legs and knees. It makes vacuuming so much easier and it is just as efficient as by big heavy Electrolux!!...more info
  • Good for wood floors and light clean up
    For hardwood floors, it does a good job. On carpet it'll clean up light spills and it's convenient on stairs. For what it costs, and without the expectation that it will do the same as a "regular" vacuum cleaner, it serves its purpose well. To me, it's basically a Dustbuster with a motorized brush. I think the Dustbuster "Dirtbuster" vacuum is better and has a stronger vacuum, although the Dustbuster doesn't have the motorized head....more info
  • Best cordless I've found
    I have a 2,000 sq. ft. home with some hard floors, some carpet and three cats who shed a lot! For deep cleaning I use a Kenmore Progressive which is excellent but weighs about a ton.
    So bought the Eureka Quick-Up for small jobs when I don't want to lug the big vac, and to clean the stairs.
    Well, my first impression when I tried this unit was that it really picked up dust! On a mix of medium-pile carpet, tile, and a microfiber sofa, it collected quite a bit of cat hair and other dirt in a single run. It's also quiet and very easy to handle. Disposing of the dirt isn't the best system I've seen (slightly messy) but then again, you expect that on any bagless model.
    Having tested quite a few other models (including the more expensive Electrolux Pronto cordless, a corded Bissell 3-in-1, and two Roomba robots that failed within a month) this is definitely the most effective I've found at any price, mainly thanks to a well-designed power brush. Highly recommended....more info
  • What do you expect?????
    IT IS WHAT IT IS!!!! A great LITTLE vacuum. I does extremly well on low pile carpet. I compared it with an Oreck XL and it stands up quite well. I IS NOT a BIG vac and should not be treated as such. But for everyday quick sweeps in place of draging out the big one, I don't think there is a better one out there. (I have had a few !!) If you do not think this vacuum works well, you have done something wrong....more info
  • A great vac for an awesome price!
    This is my third eureka stick vac (this specific model)and I love them! Bought one for my old house, my mom's house and my new house and if you have as much tile as I do, this is the thing to buy! I have small children and often vacuum once a day and this saves lots of time--only downfall is the cord is VERY short-as one reviewer said get an extension cord--nothing is perfect. I would recommend this vac for hard surface floors-I use my larger vac for my small area of carpeting--this thing is awesome!! ...more info
  • Perfect
    This little vacuum is exactly what I needed. It picks up the crusty bits around my daughter's highchair and the furry bits that the cats and dog leave behind, and the various bits on the kitchen tile. I own a large vacuum for my rugs and this was not purchased to replace that, but to compliment it.

    It is very lightweight, not too noisy, has enough cord to move from one room to another in my small space and, most importantly, fits on a hook in my cramped broom closet. I can grab it, sweep and put it away in a matter of seconds. It even has a rotating bristle that can be turned on if you need to use it on carpets or rugs.

    What more could you ask for? I LOVE it....more info
  • my favorite stick vac
    I LOVE MY EUREKA 169B QUICK UP VAC...IT WORKS EXCELLENT ON WALL TO WALL CARPETING IN MY MEDIUM HOME. IT IS VERY LIGHT WEIGHT, BUT POWERFUL!!! ALSO, I ENJOY THE WAY I CAN USE IT AS A HAND HELDED VAC FOR MY CARPETED STAIRS. IT PICKS UP EXTREMELY WELL...DUST, DIRT, HAIR,ETC. IT WAS A PERFECT GIFT FOR MYSELF FOR CHRISTMAS, I SUGGUST IT FOR A GIFT!!! ...more info
  • Not on my watch, buster!
    Well, here's the story. I bought this vacuum and ran it over my carpet, and I was joyfull, right? NOOOOOOOOOOO! Hey, if you think that Bissel vacuum is crap, wait, just wait till you see this one! If Target would let me set zero stars, I would be glad to do it! This guy also has a short cord! (I think it's short cord should go into the world records!) It is also a machine that weighs a ton! And the price! Whoo, I don't even want to talk about that!!! When you want cleanliness, and if you see a vacuum you want, I want you to remember this question: Why can't they make a powerful vacuum that doesn't weigh a ton and doesn't cost a furtone?!...more info
  • GREAT VACUUM
    I purchased my vacuum at a bargain store for much less than the advertised price here. I had to buy it. The suction is stronger than i thought. It actually lifts my carpet up while vacuuming. I love that i can use it for carpets and bare floors. It left my new carpet looking like when i bought it on thanksgiving day and the filter was jammed with dirt! Good bye broom, hello eureka! Cord is a little short..i do half the room and then switch plugs or i just add an extension..its not even an issue! I recommend this!...more info
  • Belt Wouldn't Stay On!
    This is garbage! The first two weeks were great, I bought it for my children to use because of the size. Then the belt that turns the brush started coming off(?)- wouldn't stay on. I finally gave up and am now looking for a replacement....more info
  • Does the job and does it right!
    This is a perfect, tiny and inexpensive, quick broom-vac for frequent easy cleanings. It has enough power to do a great job cleaning our wood floors and area rugs. The beater bar easily picks up the hair from our shorthaired dog, as well as my longer hair. The small head allows you to get under objects that you never could with a full size vacuum. The hepa-like cloth filter is easy to clean with a few taps and quick rinse. You can also turn the beater bar off for bare floor cleaning.

    I own a noisy full-size Dirt Devil vacuum, but after moving out of a wall-to-wall carpeted apartment into a hardwood floor house I found it tiresome to vacuum the area rugs and then sweep the floor areas with a broom. Since I didn't have the option to turn off the brutal-to-hardwood-floors beater bar, the only option was to sweep the old-fashioned way or find a new vacuum to suit my needs. One broom-vac, one year and one dog later, we still own the Eureka stick vac and love it!

    My only negative comment about this vacuum is the hard to use dust cup button. I have found it difficult to pull the button into an open position to remove and replace the dust cup. But considering that my full size vacuum hasn't left the closest for over a year, the button is only a minor flaw. You should keep in mind; this is a broom-vac, which is meant to take the place of your broom, not a full size vacuum. I love this for my hardwood floors and area rugs, but I do not think it would perform as well on wall-to-wall carpet. Also keep in mind; if this vacuum broke today, I would buy another one tomorrow!

  • handy tool
    I love this vacuum. I don't think its intended for use as a regular vacuum on plush carpets, but its great for quick cleanups. It's very handy for hardwood/tile floors (I never use a broom anymore)and for cleaning rugs without sucking them up into the vacuum. It's also great as a hand vacuum to get pet hair off of the furniture (I have a long haired cat). I recommend it as a handy tool to have around the house. ...more info
  • This vacume has a very short cord!
    Unless you want to keep replugging the vacume like 4 times to do one room, I wouldn't recommend this vacume. I am sending it back to Target....more info
  • Functional, but mediocre performance
    I bought this vacuum for my dorm room, and it worked alright on the low carpeting of my room. The suction in addition to the the rolling brush will get most of the dirt off, but you will need several passes. If the dirt or whatever you are trying to vacuum is too concentrated in one area, the vacuum will sweep it forward on the ground, and you'll have to keep passing over, slowly, it before it'll be sucked up.

    When I brought this home, it also worked on my plush carpeting, but at a severely diminished level. It will require several slow passes to clean properly. However, it will still work.

    It's small form-factor make it perfect for small areas, such as dorm rooms. However, for larger areas, or for places that you want to get *clean*, I would get a larger, real vacuum....more info

  • Eh.
    Granted, this vacuum is very cute and light, but it did NOT suck up dirt in my carpet very well at all. I had to go over and over the same spot and it still did not pick up simple little specks. My dust buster worked better than this! I would not recommend this as a regular vacuum cleaner...perhaps as a 'trophy vacuum,' as it's cute and all, but really--I don't need a vacuum cleaner as a decoration. I need it to work....more info
  • I love this vacuum!
    I've had one of these vacuums for years. They didn't used to have the filter-cup, and the dirt would clog the motor. I'd turn it in for repairs and the Eureka Co. always sent me a brand new one.

    Then one time they sent me the new model, that had a new filter-cup, which keeps the motor clear, & I was thrilled.

    I love the light weight quality and the smaller head, to vacuum tight spaces. I have a cat, and it picks up cat fur great! Just gets the job done (and I'm tough on vacuums). I don't have to fighting with it, or get ticked off, because it is hard to push or it won't get into the tight spaces.

    I've checked around, and this is the vacuum I want to always use. Even though I have one of the major brand names also, this is the one I use most of the time.

    It used to be at the stores, but I had to get it on-line this time. I hope they don't retire this model... I'd buy it a thousand times, because it is great!...more info

  • This vaccuum sucks
    F - Waste of money, this product is not recommended. I bought it four months ago, and it is now broken - it just suddenly stopped working, and has no more suction power whatsoever. The suction never really was very powerful at all. The beater needed to be cleaned every time it was used, as did the cup, and it was very messy to deal with, as well as a very good way to get my allergy-induced asthma to flare up as the dust and dirt from in the cup would fly up as soon as it was lifted from the chamber. I would go the extra few miles in terms of money to purchase something that does its job, is reliable, and will last for a couple years at least. Hopefully Target.com will be good enough to refund my money, as this should not have happened....more info

  • It just sucks!
    My husband purchased this vacuum because he thought it would be just what we needed for the one room that has carpet in our house. He also figured that Eureka had a good rep. Boy was he wrong. This vacuum is loud, but that's it. It talks a good game but it left behind a lot of dirt. I was very disappointed because it was a good size and a great price. But now I know you only get what you pay for no matter the manufacturer. I'm going back to the good ole' Dirt Devil....more info
  • Not at all good for Carpet Cleaning
    I have been using only this vacuum in my condo for over a year now. I have been too poor, up until now, to get anything else so this is what I have had to live with. I feel that by now, I have a very fair opinion of what it can do. This vacuum works well for hard floors. It is light and small and easy to store. However, I have two cats and mainly carpet floors. I have never spent less than an hour on my living room carpet alone. I have to go over and over it, and at the end, I don't even have a completely clean carpet. I have never been completely cat hair free in this condo because of the poor carpet cleaning quality of this vacuum. Cleaning the filter is a really messy process too. Like I said, it does my hard kitchen and bathroom floor great. It does not do anything for my carpet--hence, I am searching for a new vacuum right now....more info
  • Terrible - don't waste your money
    My fiancé bought his vaccum cleaner 3 months ago. We have a small appartment and there are just 2 of us. I vaccum at least 3 times a week, and empty the filter almost every time. The suction is terrible, it's hardly worth the bother of using it. I'm registering for a decent vaccum for our wedding, what a waste of $30....more info
  • A MUST HAVE FOR PET OWNERS
    I did some research on Amazon for handheld vacuum's and was undecided between this model and the Eureka 58A Hand Vac. They both have good reviews for the quality of cleaning of pet hair. I have two dogs and a cat, so I needed something lightweight that worked. Well look no farther! I was cruising through Wal-Mart and happened to find this model for $1.00 cheaper and decided to try it. I hate anything to do with cleaning, but once I used it and saw what it could do, I will be religiously cleaning my furniture from now on. It is fairly easy to use, you will need both hands when cleaning the armrest of the furniture, but it only took about 8-10 minutes to clean 2 couches, 3 chairs and a large ottoman. It has a switch to go between carpet and floor mode (carpet mode) should be used when doing furniture. The handle included makes it switch easily between upright floor vac or hand held vac. I used it on chenille and heavy fabric furniture. The heavy fabric took a little longer, but still did a great job. Worked fairly well on carpets, wouldn't recommend this for heavy carpet vacuuming though. This is a must have!!...more info
  • replacing filters
    i find the vacuum very handy and accessible especially since i have a bad back. it makes cleaning alot easier for me. the only big complaint i have is the filters are not sold in any stores. they have to be ordered. right now i'm looking on the web trying to order them but so far, no luck....more info
  • Poor durability
    I had used this stick vacuum for small jobs in the kitchen and it was fine (5 minutes or so). On the last occasion I used it for an extended period of maybe 30 minutes around the house. After that it stopped working. These units are simply too inexpensive to have repaired so I threw it away. However, they are not so inexpensive as to be disposable....more info
  • Great on hardwood floors
    I finally found something to vacumm up my hardwood floors. As an added bonus it works great for pet hair on furniture (as mentioned by another review). The price is also right. Before this I had a Floormate which didn't have half the power. This maching cleaned a floor full of overspilled cat liter in an instant. Very impressed. Would have given 5 stars except for emptying the dust canistor and cleaning the filter are a little messy....more info
  • Great Broom Vac
    I have used this almost every day since I purchased it. By no means should it be used as a replacement for your regular vacuum... Great on all my hard floors, small rugs, and stairs... This sure is one Super Broom........more info
  • good for a small office, maybe
    I purchased this vacum because i have a 2 bdrm apt with not alot of storage for a normal vacum, plus i didnt want to spend alot of money. I find that i have to clean out the filter in about 15 swips or less. hair gets wraped around the roller thing, so after every use i have to cut the hair off. It doesnt pick up large things, for example: grass, or paper bits, or those little plastic tag holders from your new shirt. I think it would be perfect for EVERYDAY cleaning in the office (with berber type carpet and not alot of mess), but you'll be perfectly frustrated if you have pets or kids, or more than a cubical space to clean....more info

    I'm loving it. So light. Great on hardwood floors. Its really handy. I even have my kids using it....more info
  • Versatile and great for pet hair
    I was pleasantly surprised at the ability of this little vac to pick up pet hair. Removing the handle is accomplished easily to facilitate cleaning pet hair from furniture. The vac can be operated with the revolving brush on or off by selecting the appropriate setting at the switch.

    It's great for small quick cleanups on carpet or cleaning bare floors. Make no mistake, this is not a replacement for a full-size, full-power vac. As a test I used this product on a section of heavy-traffic carpet that went two weeks without cleaning. It picked up the pet hair fairly well and filled it's dust cup. I then cleaned the same section with a new Bissel Cleanview Bagless upright (I've also written a review for the Bissel). The Bissel picked up enough pet hair, dust and dirt to fill the Eureka's dust cup several times. The dust cup on the Eureka is easy to remove but messy to empty and tapping it to remove the dust results in dust flying everywhere.

    Keeping in mind what it's designed for, I give the Eureka Boss Superbroom 4 stars. If you have lots of carpeting in your home, don't even consider this to be your primary vac. As a primary vac I would give it only one star....more info

  • PLEASE don't waste your MONEY!!!
    I bought this vacuum on September the 21st '2003' When i brought it home, It looked like my 2 year old daughter's toy vacuum. But i thought oh well i wil try it. I have all hardwood flooring and area rugs in my home. This was the worst vacuum i had ever used!!!!!! It would not even pick up the cookie crumbs my daughter had gotten on my kitcken floor. This is a SMALL hunk of JUNK!! I would not use this vacuum again if they offered me a free one! I just didn't want anyone else to waste their money....more info
  • Best Light Vacuum Ever
    I purchased this vacuum from target and it works great. Thought the low price meant less power but it was a surprise to see it work much powerfully. Great value for money. Picks up hair and other dirt easily but blows off popcorn or other light items instead of picking up. But with a low price tag, it is unbeatable....more info
  • Perfect for my needs.
    I have a great vacuum, but wanted something simple for the kitchen, bathroom, and other places that I didn't want to have to fight with the big vacuum to clean.

    The SuperBroom is great for everyday and general cleaning. You can also remove the long handle and use the broom much like a powerful dustbuster. (The top of my fridge looks fantastic now)

    Although I mainly use this for hard floors/tile, I did have great results on my carpeted steps.

    Some people complain that this won't stand up on it's own... which I don't understand. It leans when needed and is so light that rarely do I ever stand it; except when I'm finished and need to store the broom in my closet. And, it's so small it fits in their perfectly.

    Why not 5 stars?

    It's good for daily cleaning, but with the title of "Superbroom" it should be able to pick up even the must stubborn crumb....more info

  • Wonderful Vacuum!!!
    I purchased this vac about 2 months ago. I absolutely love it! I had an older model,but it got lost when we moved. It also worked great which is why I purchased another.
    I have vinyl flooring throughout my entire house and I have no problems sucking up dirt and pet hair and whatever else my 5 year old seems to drop.
    The cord is very long and it is lightweight. Even my 5 year old likes to use it!
    I would hightly recommend this product to anyone.
    It is definitley a great vac at a great price!...more info
  • GREAT PRODUCTS!!
    I am ordering this Vac today and I already rate it at 5 stars! I have had a model 161 for ten years and it still works great on hard wood, kitchen & bathrooms & carpets as well as ever. I just cannot find the filters and the one I have been using has to be brushed after each use. I hate to retire it!! I cannot wait until my Boss Superbroom arrives!!...more info
  • Great Vacuum for bare floors!
    I just purchased this vacuum--it works great! We have lots of tile and wood floors, and it picked up all the dust and crumbs very well. Much better than our 'big' vacuum, which just flings dirt around. It did a good job on the area rugs, too. It is very lightweight and easy to use--I think (hope!) my young kids will be able to use it to help out. A great product for a low price! P.S. To the reviewer who asked where to get another dust cup filter, the owner's manual says to call 1-800-282-2886 and ask for part number 61544....more info
  • Good for small jobs
    I bought this vaccuum looking for a cheap alternative to an expensive, larger vaccuum. It has worked out just fine. It is smaller, so it is easy to store and it works well on my wood floors and carpet. I have two cats, and it sucks up their hair just fine. Sometimes I have to put a little pressure on it, but overall, it works great....more info
  • Great Little Broom!
    I love this electric broom, that is exactly what it is. Have had mine for about a year now and it does exactly what I want it to do which is "sweep" dog hair and crumbs in the kitchen and living room. It is not a vacuum cleaner, I have to use a standard upright to do the rugs, and this is not really great on stairs unless they are hard wood. If you don't try to use it as a vacuum cleaner, it works great as an electric broom on hard floors. I love it. Having trouble finding the filter bag that needs to be replaced now. Anybody know where I can get one?...more info
  • Great & Wonderful
    I received this item as a gift because my in-laws had given us a great big power vaccuum. It broke down and couldn't be repaired. I couldn't clean my apartment and it was annoying me. As a couple, long hair is shed daily and we ended up with little hair balls all over the place. Once this little lightweight piece of fun came home, I was so happy. Yes, I had to stop and cut the hair off the rollers but big deal. When it broke down, I fixed it myself. It's simple and easy....more info
  • Disappointment
    We've bought this vacuum when rented our first apartment, that had wall-to-wall carpeting. We used to have a small vacuum cleaner in Europe and it worked just fine. But this one turned out to be just a waste of money. It could barely pick up some easily visible dirt on the surface and now, after just several months, it almost doesn't vacuum at all (even though we clean it all the time) and we're looking for a _real_ vacuum cleaner. We probably won't even keep it for a quick clean-up, since it's not very handy either....more info
  • Good for maintenance, as a primary vacuum though, it sucks
    I purchased this as I originally lived in a small apartment and was short on space to store a conventional vacuum. I turned out to be disappointed with it and found myself running to borrow my neighbors traditionally sized vacuum. Why? It was ok picking up tiny pieces of stuff, but had issues on anything larger. The problem may be in the suction; it simply may not have enough to be used as a primary vacuum. It had problems when it tried to pick up anything that wasn't on the extreme top surface of the carpet. I sew a lot, and it couldn't get thread out of my carpet unless it was on the very top of the carpeting. Grass or any leaves you've dragged in from out front? Forget about it, it struggled with them as well. I found myself going over the same piece of thread or a leaf over and over 'till I finally got frustrated and just bent over and picked the darn thing up.

    I have since moved to a home, and purchased a bigger vacuum. I now use this Eureka superbroom vacuum for maintenance on surface stuff. If you keep your carpet spotlessly clean with a more traditonally sized vacuum, this little guy may do well for you for maintenance. I do like that you can remove the vacuum from the stick and use it as a corded hand held. I zoom it over my drapes and upholstery where it annihilates little dust bunnies.

    As a primary vacuum however, I feel it sucks. I just wanted to point that out in case anyone needed a small vacuum as their primary one like I did. Happy cleaning....more info

  • Great for quick clean-ups!
    I've had my Boss Superbroom #169A for a week now, and love it for the little quick cleanups that it can do. I have a Miele for the big vacuuming, but am amazed at how well the Eureka picks up the debris of two kids and a dog. I read the reviews for the cordless Superbroom #96B, but I don't have luck with rechargeable appliances, and don't mind a cord. This seemed to be the only difference between the #96B and the #169A.

    ONE WORD OF CAUTION: I bought mine at the Target store in Danvers, MA. Upon opening up the box, I found a VERY used Superbroom, jammed with blond animal fur and dirt. It had obviously been used QUITE a bit before someone returned it. I was so disgusted, I immediately called the store, and had to make an extra trip back the next day to exchange it for a new one, and for an explanation as to how this was put back on the shelf for sale (didn't get one). This time, I opened the box in the store. The moral of the story: open the box before you leave the store!...more info

  • With further use, I would buy it again.
    It has rubber wheels, which is good if you don't want to scratch up whatever you are cleaning. The brushes are also soft. Another plus. The suction leaves a lot to be desired. On a hardwood floor the vacuum picks up tiny stuff quite well but will not pick up anything as large as, say, a paper match stick.
    I'll keep looking for something more powerful.
    *****UPDATE****
    I have used this machine for 2 years. It clogs relatively fast. But--I really like this unit. I use it more than my high-suction, larger vac. For routine, spot cleaning and/or a quick run-through, this is really a good unit. Not the strongest suction--but come on--look at it--it is a small, budget unit.
    I would buy it again. No questions asked.
    (note: I post my reviews because I take them seriously and I take other people's seriously as well. Please take the time to rate my review so I can do a better job in the future. Thanks :) )....more info
