When we first bought this, the suction was great then gradually reduced to virtually nothing. Then, I cleaned the filter thoroughly and it was better than when we first bought it! As long as you clean the filter and empty the canister regularly, the hoover is very good. A couple of bad points are the length of the cord and also the size of the canister/filter. Overall, a good vacuum cleaner for short pile carpet or laminate. Oh, and quite good for pet hairs!
