Our Wal-Mart doesn't have them yet. Can't wait to try one. The possibility that I will wind up not liking it, and returning it, is great. However, you never know. I didn't think I would keep my WindtunnelMAX when I bought it either, but I still have it because it really impressed me.

We will see about "Rover" whether he stays or goes back. But at least I will have been able to try it.

I watched a funny video on youtube where a woman was doing a demonstration of this vacuum. She didn't have a clue, it was funny to watch her run across the carpet chasing the vacuum when she turned on the power nozzle.

It reminds me of several others on the market right now, Shark, Hoover React. I would be curious if the large rear wheels helps in controlling the weight and balance better than the Hoover. The price point isn't terrible, why do they all have to be bagless???

Saw that in Walmart some point last year was rather disgusted. I hate the trend of copying something bad. Just like they copied Dyson there now copying shark.

I agree! Eureka has maybe had the worst-run of bagless vacuums since their inception, but this one looks like it has potential. I wonder if it's multi-cyclonic?

There is a video of a woman reviewing it on Youtube. One thing I noticed (and was mentioned here already), is that the vacuum takes off when she turns the brushroll on. I love "brush-propelled" vacuums!

Did Swedish Electrolux sell Eureka to Midea?

I bought one

I have a like for the unique and different looking vacuums, this one checked off that box. It was delivered yesterday. I love ebay. I got a good price <$100, NIB, the box was damaged, the machine is in perfect condition.

Here are my observations after using it one time:

Not a bad machine, I have definitely seen worse costing more. I will say when assembling, which was very easy, just snap the handle in place and insert one screw. The plastic felt very thin and flimsy. I don't want to use the word cheap, because it appears to be a well engineered machine, I just don't see it as heirloom quality that will be passed down generations.

Initial observations include a nice long cord 35', good array of attachments including a air driven nozzle; which all but the dusting brush ride onboard. There is a diverter valve that is manually switched where suction can be routed to the above the floor hose and tools, or to the floor nozzle. I actually like this arrangement. Rather than having the suction travel through a very long air path like some of the similar looking machines, the diverter allows for a shorter path for the floor cleaning.

Weight of the machine will be a disappointment for the perpetually weak users. Much like my Hoover React this is a 18+ pound machine. Like the react, and the Shark Navigator as well as other look a likes a great deal of the weight is on the handle when in the leaned back in use position. This is not a lift-off machine, everything remains attached, except the hose when using hose mode.

Lets talk a minute about those wheels. They are big, again rather flimsy, but do a nice job supporting the machine. With the Swivel neck, which seems very well engineered and built, the machine maneuvers much like the ball system with Dyson.

There is an on/off switch for the brush roll, but it is not automatic adjusting as with the React. The dust bin is large, and I actually like the cyclone and filter set up better than others. The Floorrover has the bin separator like most bagless machines, then there is a foam filter above the cyclones, the pre-motor filter sits above the foam filter and then the air path flows to the motor in the base. Then there is a rather large HEPA after filter before final exhaust.

So how does it perform. I was actually very happy with the results. I see this as being a viable alternative to the Sharks and other copies out there. It does have a five year warranty, which I highly suspect would need to be accessed during ownership. My first impression is a thumbs up.

I got to try one, and was similarly impressed with the way it dug the dirt out of the rug. Thin plastic, but it's less than $200.

Midea makes Black and Decker vacuums too. I see the similarity very much.

Has anyone confirmed who is going to continue making vacuums with the Electrolux brand name?

Sanitaire would keep making vacuums for Electrolux.

Midea has bought Eureka

Yes, Electrolux sold the Eureka brand to Midea, Electrolux still makes machines with their own brand such as the Ultra One, and they still make the Sanitaire brand.
