Last weekend I bought this nice Filter Queen 360 at my local Goodwill outlet store for 69 cents a pound. I use the Limited Edition next to it regularly. In comparing the two I've found that the 360 is more powerful but also a lot noisier. The tube diameter of the tools is larger and the overall weight is less. The one step connection is nice, but the older connection system still seems a little easier and I don't mind the extra step of plugging in the cord. The power nozzle is smaller and lighter but the LE power nozzle is height adjustable and is better at carpet grooming. Overall the older LE is the one I prefer. It seems nearly as powerful as the 360 and the deal breaker for me is the difference in decibels. The older 7.6 amp motor makes a smoother quieter sound that is more pleasant to my ears. What does anybody else think?

I had a newer FQ. I disliked the clunky, awkward hose handle especially when using the above the floor tools. I did like the quick disconnect. I found the power nozzle was weak when compared to the older nozzles. A few months ago I got a model 700. I like the quieter motor and the old style hose handle. It is the same model that my mom had when I was growing up.

Several years back, I bought a Filterqueen 360 NIB on Ebay and didn't like the new power nozzle or attachments.

I called Health Mor and was able to purchase the old style power nozzle, hose and attachments. You 

can still find the old style power nozzle brand new along with the hose-wand on Ebay or Goodvac.
