We got this vacuum cleaner about a year ago. My mom died and we inherited it.
Anyhow, I like the bag-less aspect. Heather doesn’t.
But the one thing that they did wrong is the power cord. It comes out of the side! A very simple way to make cleaning rugs with it easier: have the cord come out of the top of the handle! As it is, I have to hold the cord with the other hand to keep it from running under the brushes.
(And yes, I miss my mom. I wish she were using it and not us.)

Just a suggestion – use one of those plastic zap straps to fasten the cord to the handle. One less thing to worry about.
Sorry about your Mom.
They really should make the cord come out of the handle! Ours comes out of the base of the machine. It’s like they want you to vacuum up the cord.
Every vacuum is designed the same stupid way: the cord comes out down low, and they have clips to hold it to the handle. Why not route inside the hollow plastic body, like you say? The old tank vacs often had retractable cords. I miss those, even though occasionally they were a pain.
Thanks for the comments, Tim, Rachel & Glenda – and I like your suggestion, Glenda!
Maybe you should make a patent?
Simple solution: Buy a iRobot Roomba! No more cords, no more wasting time vacuuming! =0)
