I need ideas on how old it is, and also what it's worth. Thanks! This belongs to my Aunt (not the same one with the Eureka)

My mistake. It's actually a EC-12SXT4

My guess would be from 1996 or 1997, considering the amps it that time, 12 amps wasn't the standard yet for vacuums in the amps wars. And Sharp pulled out of the vacuum business around 2002/2003, so it has the be mid-90's, as it's definitely not one of their later models.

I feel sorry for Sharp's exit from the vacuum business. Sharp is an electronics company, inspired by Panasonic and Sanyo, with LG.

Sharp were one of the first leaders in microwaves too, though. I used to have a twin cassette deck Sharp portable stereo when I was growing up and only ever tried one of their early bagged upright vacuums in the 1990s which was pretty good but noisy.

One of the things I remember about the very first North American version of this Sharp - the powder blue one - is that it rated quite well in Consumer Reports when it first came to the North American market.

They liked the fact that it was "Library Quiet"! They also like the high placement of the cord hooks (which Panasonic copied soon after) since they were set quite high on the unit for easy winding of the cord without stooping. It may have even merited a "Best Buy" since it was relatively inexpensive for the high performance you got.

At the very same time, they also top-rated Sharp's little compact canister - a blue and grey unit with a very "easy to change" bag.
