Soleus VC-680 HEPA Portable Turbo Vacuum STRENGTHS:
Suction power; light weight; easy to put in bags and filters;
Very small dust bag; replacement cost of filters; customer service; lack of attachments;
The Soleus VC-680 is a very nice vacuum cleaner for the price. It has very powerful suction and is more than adequate for a small apartment. However, the dust bag has a capacity of about 1.5L and NOT 3.5 L as advertised.
The quality of the hose is adequate albeit having much plastic. The lack of attachments is also a drawback. (It only has a crevice tool attachment in addition to the floor unit.)
The advertised carrying strap does not hook up front and rear as shown in advertisements, but only at the rear, which points the exhaust at the user's face.
Last, I found the customer service to be extremely lacking. My VC-680 came with only 3 paper dust bags as opposed to the 5 paper dust bags and 1 cloth dust bags that should come with the unit.
After more than 17 days, their customer service has yet to reply to my concerns in my email. They did send the 2 replacement paper dust bags (with no correspondence whatsoever), but have yet to send the cloth dust bag.
