Amazon.com Product Description

The performance features of the C-60 are as impressive as its stylish metal exterior. In addition to a 6.1-megapixel resolution, the compact, durable C-60 features Olympus's new TruePic TURBO image processor, a dual autofocus system usually found in SLR-style digital cameras (like the C-8080), and sunshine LCD technology that makes it easy to review your photo shoot even in bright daylight. The C-60 also offers a 3x optical zoom lens, USB 2.0 connectivity, PictBridge compatibility, and movie mode with audio.

Optics and Resolution The C-60 has a maximum resolution of 2816 x 2112 pixels, which will produce 30 x 40 print enlargements. It also offers these lower resolution modes: 2560 x 1920 (5 MP), 2288 x 1704 (4 MP), 2048 x 1536 (3 MP), 1600 x 1200 (2 MP), 1280 x 960 (1 MP), 1024 x 768 (SVGA), and 640 x 480 (VGA). The 3x optical zoom aspherical glass lens has a 35mm equivalent of 38mm-114mm. It also features a 4x digital zoom, for a 12x total zoom.

Movie Mode
In addition to still images, the C-60 can record video with sound at two resolution modes: 320 x 240 and 160 x 120 (both at 15 frames per second). Movie length is only limited by the size of your memory card. The included 32 MB XD card will record approximately 80 seconds of high-resolution video.

More Features
The C-60 is one of the first Olympus models to feature TruePic Turbo, a new image processor that sharpens image clarity, contrast, and color for life-like results. This feature also makes the camera 30% faster in processing images and is combined with a super-fast shutter release time. Other features include:

  • 1.8-inch low-temperature poly-silicon LCD (approximately 134,000 pixels)
  • Thirteen shooting modes give you the flexibility to capture amazing images for various situations
  • Full aperture and shutter control in Manual mode
  • Built-in multi mode flash and Dual Auto Focus system is designed to ensure your subjects are properly lit and in focus quickly
  • Stitch up to 10 images together to create a single panoramic with an Olympus-branded XD memory card

Olympus Sunshine LCD Technology
Olympus' new sunshine LCD technology enables you to review your shots even in direct sunlight. A standard display reflects sunlight from its surface and therefore in bright sunshine it is difficult to review an image. The sunshine LCD, however, has semi-transparent layers which enable the sunlight to penetrate a few layers into the panel. This light is reflected by the underside of the liquid crystal layer, and images are clearer and brighter thanks to this additional "back light." The display also adjusts its brightness to cater for the surrounding light conditions, whether it be on a beach or in a brightly-lit room.

Storage and Transfer
Images are stored on tiny XD memory cards, and a 32 MB card is included with the C-60. You'll be able to store 7 shots of SHQ (or 14 HQ) 2816 x 2112 pixel images on the included card. The C-60 transfers images to Macs and Windows-based PCs via a speedy USB 2.0 connection.

Direct Printing
The C-60 is PictBridge compatible, which enables you to transfer pictures from your digital camera to a compatible printer (such as the Olympus P-10), without a PC or image-editing software. All PictBridge devices share three basic features: camera-to-printer connecting, single-image printing, and uniform error messages (in case something goes wrong).

Power and Size
The camera is powered by a proprietary rechargeable lithium-ion battery (LI-12B). The C-60 measures 3.9 x 2.22 x 1.6 inches (WxHxD) and weighs a lean 7 ounces without batteries or recording media.

What's in the Box
This package contains the Olympus C-60 digital camera, 32 MB XD memory card, rechargeable lithium-ion battery (LI-12B), battery charger, remote control, wrist strap, USB and A/V cables, and CD-ROM with Camedia Master software. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Great camera, weak flash
Strengths: Very compact & light, quick startup (slower with bigger XD Media cards), lots of great features (like continuous shooting mode and red-eye reduction), long battery life.
Weaknesses: Weak flash, red-eye reduction not available in continuous shooting mode, slow startup with big XD Media cards.
Summary: This is overall a great camera (see list of main strengths above). My biggest complaint is that the flash is pretty weak, and cannot be brightened in "auto" mode. However, if you switch the camera to one of the manual modes, you have more control over the brightness of the flash -- but I've found that increasing the brightness washes out the subjects too much. So you're stuck between a rock & a hard place. The perfect flash I ever used was on a Nikon Coolpix 995 camera, but that camera is big & bulky & slow compared to this camera. So if you're going to be doing a lot of daylight shooting or outdoor shooting that doesn't require heavy use of a flash, this camera is for you. If you're doing a lot of nighttime or indoor shooting (like me), you'll be hard-pressed to get rid of this spritely little camera that's chock-full of features, and instead you'll find yourself turning on lots of overhead lights to flood more light into the room.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good camera
I have this camera for 2 months.
Good quality photos. Easy to use.
No digital zoom in auto mode.
I can't buy extra battery LI-12B

5-0 out of 5 stars Olympus has done it again
Simply love it, I purchased this camera about a month ago this is my 2nd olympus the 1st lasting for 5 years (and still going strong) but just a 1.3 megapixel only good for 4 x 6 prints My wife & I wanted a camera capable of larger prints. We have had 8 x 10s printed from the camera and they are excellent. We were told you could get a 20 x 30 print if we wanted. Some may have trouble with the controls but this is not just a "point and shoot camera" it has all of the bells & whistles that photo buffs demand, but also an Auto mode and the camera will do all the work.

4-0 out of 5 stars A Great Little Camera
I have been getting excellent results with this little beauty. I don't understand the comment on battery life, since I am getting 200-250 pictures on a charge. My only complaint is the size of the XD card that they supply with the unit. For a 6 Megapixel camera, you would think they would give you more storage to start with than 32MB. other than that the quality is excellent, pictures are high resolution and the Camedia software supplied with the camera does an excellent job.

2-0 out of 5 stars BIG DISAPPOINTMENT
I received this camera as a birthday present. I have an Olympus C-3000 and since I have had such luck with this Olympus, wanted to upgrade to something smaller and better. Well, the C60 looks and feels great but I was terribly disappointed in the quality of the pictures, as well as not being user friendly. Battery life is also TERRIBLE. ... Read more


2. Hoover U6439-900 Self-Propelled WindTunnel Ultra Upright Vacuum Cleaner

Amazon.com Review

Perfect for deep cleaning without excessive strain, the self-propelled Hoover WindTunnel Ultra upright takes charge of its own locomotion both coming and going. In addition, Hoover’s WindTunnel technology creates a powerful double air path for maximum suction and cleaning. The vacuum even provides feedback on cleaning progress with the Embedded Dirt Finder--a feature that scans the floor for debris, signaling you if there’s still dirt to be picked up. You can operate the Dirt Finder on a regular setting for your routine cleaning or on a high setting for your deep-cleaning sprees.

The WindTunnel Ultra is designed for both bare floors and carpets, with a 15-inch cleaning path and three adjustable nozzle heights to accommodate variation in carpet depth. Dirt collection is bagged using Hoover’s Microfiltration system, and a helpful indicator signal keeps you posted on the bag’s status. A HEPA filter assists the bag, trapping 100 percent of dust mites and 99.98 percent of ragweed and common grass pollens.

The vacuum comes handsomely equipped for attachment cleaning with a stretch hose, two extension wands, a crevice tool, an upholstery tool, and a dusting brush all on board. (The Dirt Finder does not work with the attachments.) The most rigorous attachment is a powered hand tool with its own rotating brushroll--great for carpeted stairs and durable upholstery. Other useful elements include quick-release cord hooks, a carrying handle, a headlight, and a view window over the brush roll. Hoover covers the machine with a one-year warranty. --Emily Bedard ...

2-0 out of 5 stars Thought it was good, but SO disappointing
I thought for the money this would be a good vacuum. Easy to push, suction to pick up cat hair and dust. Boy, was I wrong. The suction never really was that great, and the self-propel feature stopped working about 2 years after purchase. What a disappointment.

1-0 out of 5 stars 9 months old - dead as a door nail
I picked one of these up August 2003 and I turned it on this afternoon: nothing happened. I checked the off/on switch with an ohm meter and it seems to be working. The "helpful" troubleshooting guide suggested that maybe there was a problem with my house's electrical system or that the cleaner I had not used for several days was overheated -- wrong! I suspect that the thermostat to detect overheating is broken. I agree with the other reviewers that the product is bulky, heavy and awkward. I cannot get in under the coffee table to clean because it is so large. It also tends to fall over when I use the applicances, also mentioned by another reviewer. The only really cool feature is the air-powered beater brush extension -- which I will not be using today because the Hoover does not suck...Avoid this over-priced piece of junk. Next time I will go with cannister vaccuum like the Kenmoore I had that lasted 15 years.

4-0 out of 5 stars Hoover - Good Performance
Have had this Hoover for over 2 years - purchased online. This Hoover has been a reliable product and has the best suction of any machine I have used/seen. My prior Eureka Christian Klingspore signature upright model had significant durability problems and not near the cleaning power which drove me to evaluate the Hoover based on the Consumer Reports rating. Am satisfied with its overall performance - good suction (not through the motor), good tool set with power brush, and is reasonably quiet, although it is a bit heavy (carry handle is conveniently placed).

Downside: When using the tools with the short hose, the vacuum tips too easily and can easily hit you, or nearby walls or furniture potentially causing damage (scratches/scuff marks).

I am satisfied with this product and would consider purchase of another many years from now, as all functions/features still work as when new.

1-0 out of 5 stars Worst Vacuum Ever!
DO NOT BUY this vacuum. It needs the belt replaced every few weeks and constantly smells of burning rubber even when you have just replaced the belt. The roller bar constantly gets stuck. After about 10 minutes of vacuuming (if you can stand the burning rubber smell) the vacuum gets too hot and turns its self off. It is very heavy to lug up and down stairs and it doesn't get into the corner of the carpets at all. All I wanted was a good vacuum that would work and even if this vacuum was cheap (which it isn't) it is still the worst vacuum ever!!! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great for home office
When in my home office, I am on the phone 5-7 hours a day. I have tried many combinations of phones and headsets and have never been satisfied with the voice quality. I also run a wireless network and have had problems in the past with 2.4 Ghz phones causing interference. The Plantronics CT12 is the answer to all my problems:

* portable - small belt unit is light, offers great battery life and includes all the features I need
* great headset - sound quality is equal to that of a handset (people do not know you are on a headset); comfortable with two fit options, Firefly function is nice bonus
* Caller-ID - included on belt unit, works as expected
* 2.4 Ghz - range is good, does not cause interference with my wireless network (previous phones from Panasonic and others have)

Only negative is that you cannot answer or otherwise use the phone while it is charging (must remove the belt unit from the charger). All in all, highly recommended.

4-0 out of 5 stars Tops for Comfort & Sound Quality
I have owned a couple hands-free phones in recent years and find this to be a big step forward in sound quality, comfort, and size.

The boom microphone is excellent. It doesn't reach around in front of your mouth the way old-fashioned headsets did, which is an advantage. A red LED at the end flashes to let people know you are on the phone.

Drop the phone into the base unit and it charges automatically, giving you about 5 hours of talk time. A stalk on the base unit swivels up so you can hang the headset up when its not in use.

Comfort is so good you can forget you have it on (I wore it out to my car the other day. Doh!). The handset has a belt clip and there is a shirt clip to keep the cord out of your way. You can switch the ear piece and mic from one ear to the other in about three seconds. Likewise, you can pick up the headset almost as quickly as you could a regular phone.

Range is good. I pace around my office and don't find the signal degrades, although walls, partitions and doors will obviously shorten range. If you need more range than this offers, you probably need a cell phone.

Build quality and metrials are both excellent. It takes normal wear and tear and has been dropped several times with no ill effects. Design is modern and attractive.

The only shortcoming worth noting is ergonomic -- I had to dock it one star because the buttons are needlessly small (think TV remote circa 1990), though they are clearly marked and easily readable.

Recommended.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not a "Lady's Phone"
While performance of this phone is great - fantastic, in fact, I think the functionality of the phone is a bit clumsy for women.

The range is great. Audio is crystal clear. No interrupts on our wireless-g network, save one small glitch with the laptop, resolved by changing channels.

The belt clip is for belts, not slacks or skirts. Women don't always wear belts. It needs more tension or a tighter grip to be able to hold on to the thinner materials women wear. I tried using the clip to hook it to a long key lanyard, worn around the neck, but it was too heavy/clunky to be worn that way comfortably.

Problem 2 - headset or over the ear? Again, a "woman" issue - small ears prevent me from comfortably using the over the ear ear/mic. Using the headset is great with the exception of a little too much tension on the ear causing a sore spot, earpiece cover isn't soft enough to accommodate even small earrings (conforming foam would have been better).

Recommendations to the manufacturer - it would be *great* if, after you fix the tension issues w/ the beltclip, you could fix it so the belt clip would mount in either direction. What I mean is wearing the unit upside down would allow you to read/see display & buttons when looking down at it.

2-0 out of 5 stars Lot's of Wireless Networking issues
I purchased this phone with high hopes of using it as my primary home office phone. The phone directly interferes around 50% of the time with my 802.11.B wireless network. Since the phone channel can not be fixed, the Plantronics CT12 will randomly knock me completely off the network. No amount of calls to Plantronics or fiddling with my wireless channels improves this problem. Thier answer is that the channels are choosen by the phone and there's nothing they can do. I've returned the phone for a refund.

The other problem is that the phone can not be used while it's in the charging base, so you'll need to have another office phone for when the battery runs low.

If it weren't for these two major issues, it's a nice phone with clear sound and the little red light on the mic boom is cute.

5-0 out of 5 stars Happy with it
I've had mine for a week or two now. It's one of the best things I've ever bought. It sounds clear and no one has any trouble hearing me. I haven't had an opportunity to test its range yet. I do have a few qualms with it. Really they are more like suggestions for the next version of this headset.

They need to come up with a better way of attaching the headset cord to the control box. I first tried just plugging in the cord straight into the control box like the diagram shows. Unfortunately the first time I accidentally knocked the unit off my belt and the control box reached the end of the slack in the cord the headset plug popped out of the jack in the control box. After that I started looping the slack through under the belt clip. That way the connector is pulled down into the jack rather than up and out of the jack. That helped. I don't knock if off very often. There's probably a slick way of engineering better cable management. I just can't think of if at the moment.

I also wish I could set the microphone sensitivity. The mic picks up my breathing from time to time. I've tried placing the mic below my chin and even up as high as my nose. It's not catching actual wind. Instead it's actually picking up the sound of my breathing. Being able to adjust the sensitivity would be nice.

The only suggestion I can think of is for the engineers to make it easier to blindly find more of the important buttons. Only the "5" button has a raised dot in the button surface to tell the user where his finger is. It would be nice if the Talk and End buttons also had something unique on each to guide the ever blind finger. Mute is also likely to be used blindly. It wouldn't hurt to give that button a texture as well.

Other than that I'm really happy with this unit. I've wondered if I could use a 802.11b access point in bridging mode to extend the range of this unit. It's possible I suppose... ... Read more

The Amplifier was necessary to drive my passive subwoofer. Buy an active woofer if you don't own an amp.

The NetTune system works great. You need a Windows PC on your network to use this feature. Sound quality is great.

Video quality through witched components also very good.

5-0 out of 5 stars wonderful camera, lens
I needed a small camera with a 28 mm lens. The other choice was an Olympus stylus epic, fixed 28 mm. But for travel the zoom is great. I also took photos with my 5 megapixel camera. there is no comparison. used Fuji superia 200 film, amazing colors, detail, even the kodak photo cd blew away the Dig. And the batteries never die (unlike a dig). destined to be a clasic like its previous incarnataion.

5-0 out of 5 stars very very good to me.
I've gone through around ten rolls of film, and the results are really clear. rarely have I seen this camera on the street I would guess most purchases today are digital cameras. I own both. but after the many request for copies of the clear photos from the t-4. I now use it all the time. I really enjoy the remote control,with a tripod.\ get close to subject when shooting, and you will look like a pro.its a good camera, and its easy to use. and for 200 dollars you will be very happy.

2-0 out of 5 stars What's the Big Deal?
Yes, it's nice to have a 28 mm lens on an auto-everything camera, but other than that, I don't really understand what the big deal (the raves of other reviewers) is with this camera. The pictures are not any sharper than with my Olympus Stylus Zoom, the exposures are not that great under many conditions, it is very difficult -- if not impossible -- to stop the zoom where you want to in the middle of its range, and -- worst of all for me -- the camera comes pre-set with a printable (wrong) date, that unless you reset or erase it will ruin all of your photos!! I stupidly took this camera on vacation without testing it first and shot eleven rolls of film with it. I sure wish I had taken my Olympus instead.

5-0 out of 5 stars New Kyocera Yashica Zoom
A really superb camera, the Carl Zeiss 28-70 zoom alone incredible, I,ve owned it for about 5 weeks now, did not have a chance to use it , did that today and had the results shot on Fuji 200 done at a one hour lab, when I opened the envelope and took a peek, it was hard to believe.
This camera can easily to stand up to any SLR or digital. Exposures were great, I love the feature of being able to underexpose or overexpose by 1 1/2 stops with ease.
It is also a great looking camera.
In some on line reviews it has been criticised for the shutter and the preflash, yes, the shutter is very sensitive, it does emit a preflash in a dark place to get the range, I got used to it very quickly, just inform your subjects it preflashes, thats it, you will get a second flash, no one gets very upset and it works well.
This is not an inexpensive camera for a 28 to 70 lens, but, its worth every penny, you,ll get it back in gorgeous photographs, much better than the average run of the mill PS will do, if you want a great camera, buy it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Superior Camera for the same money as Nikon, Canon & Co.
As somebody who travels a fair amount I always like to have a camera ready to take with me. During my last trip to the tropics I took my aging Pentax Espio zoom with me which unfortunately packed up half way through the trip. Knowing that I needed to get a new camera I made a list of my needs which are:

Compact dimensions
Sharp lens
Robust
Value for money
Good zoom lens range.

First off I had to decide where I stood on the Digital vs Film camera debate. This was fairly easily resolved as it is clear that Digital cameras are still some years away in terms of image resolution and cost. My view then is that my new camera would be film-based and if it lasted until Digital overtook then that would work out quite neatly. In other words I'm expecting this to be the last film camera I will buy.

Then I had a look at the available film options and the field narrowed down very quickly. In this sector of the market the quality brands are Leica, Contax and Rollei by virtue of superior optics. Nikon, Canon, Minolta, Olympus and Pentax are in the next group; don't get too carried away by these names - even though they make superb SLR cameras they tend to out-source the production of their compact cameras to China, Malaysia etc. fair enough but don't expect the high level optics the SLRs give. Compact cameras are generally sold on features (length of zoom etc.) not quality of lens. People only find out about this after purchase so it's not a key sales driver. It is however the most important aspect of getting good pictures which is what this is largely about(!)

Taking the three quality brands then: Contax cameras use Carl Zeiss lenses which are generally regarded by many pros as the best in the world, prices however are high. Rollei models seemed expensive with a lesser reputation than Contax for optics. The styling on the Leicas (C1, C2 and C3)is very "clunky" - they're trying for a retro look and failing but the optics are highly regarded. Downsides all round and not an easy decision to make. I was edging towards the Leica C3 (worth checking out despite styling issues) when a helpful sales assistant pointed out the Yashica. This was interesting for the following reasons:

The lens is a Carl Zeiss T* lens as in the Contax range (Contax, Yashica and Carl Zeiss are all owned by Kyocera Corp.). *This is just about the highest quality lens which can be bought regardless of money*. As well as pin-sharp precision it is also a faster lens that many others including the Leica.
The zoom on the lens starts at 28mm which means you get a full wide-angle range. More useful that the more common 35mm.
The camera is compact and nicely styled. Controls are well designed.
The price far undercuts all of the other models.

While not having quite the cachet of Leica or Contax this camera is in the same league of quality. The results I have had from this camera are better than I had hoped and make the pictures from my old Pentax look rather second rate. My dealer also informs me that many pros use this camera for fast, spontaneous shots and the results are indistinguishable from SLR quality.

Highly recommended. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Not worth the trouble
Nice little camera, but it does not take quality pictures. We used this camera for pictures of all kinds and the pictures look great on the camera display, but once they are printed they are very blurry and distorted. Spend the extra money to get something of good quality, this camera is definitely not it.

3-0 out of 5 stars So-So
This camera is nice and clean, but the performance is lagging when it comes to processing time and overall photo quality. The digital zoom is best left alone because results end up being out of focus. The 1.5 inch display is fine for lighted photos, but during dances or night time events you are totally unable to view what you are trying to take a photo of. For the price it is average, but for a little more money you can purchase a better camera with an optical zoom.

1-0 out of 5 stars Two Thumbs Down
This cam is an import, I can't remember if it was built in Taiwan or China; either way its definitely not from the USA. The max resolution is complete overkill. For such an anemic sensor, they should not have tried to make 6MP from 3MP. The picture quality has been below average when set to 3MP. At 6MP, the quality is exceptionally poor. Avoid the Digital Zoom, unless you like really blurry pics. Two thumbs down for me.

1-0 out of 5 stars Not worth it
First off, this camera is not made in the USA as indicated online. Creates poor choppy and grainy video. I would not recomend this camera, spend a little bit more and get good camera with 3x Optical Zoom.

Amazon.com Review

You may think of canister vacuums as clumsy beasts, but the 12-amp Bissell DigiPro canister vacuum is anything but. Built with exacting attention to details and sturdy components, the vacuum is easy to use and versatile enough for the whole house. Plus, it incorporates filtration and digital sensor technology that automatically adjusts suction power for optimal results.

Designed for bare floors and carpet, the DigiPro's floor nozzle has edge-cleaning construction, five different heights, a 13-inch cleaning path, and a wide headlight. You can adjust suction with the variable power controls, using low for delicates, economy for normal cleaning, and high for ground-in dirt. Or, leave it on automatic to make use of Bissell's digital detection system. The 5-row brush roll can be switched off if necessary, and the wand telescopes to accommodate different user heights or hard-to-reach tasks. The washable HEPA filtration is a boon to allergy sufferers--it traps up to 99.9 percent of ragweed, dust mites, and pollen.

The DigiPro is useful for above-floor jobs and stairways, too, with a compact shape that fits onto stairs, and a dusting brush, upholstery tool, and crevice attachment stored onboard. Handy extras include a bag-change indicator, fingertip switches, automatic cord rewind, and oversized toe-tap buttons. Large casters, swivel-glide wheels, and a comfortable carrying handle enhance maneuverability. For storage, the nozzle can be parked in two places on the canister, which stores either upright or horizontal. Bissell includes 12 extra vacuum bags to get you started. --Emily Bedard ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Reviewer has a good point, HEPA of very poor design
The Reviewer makes an excellent point! This unit will not provide HEPA filtration of exaust air. So if you are buying this unit due to allergies or based on the procaimed HEPA filtration you would do best to pass this unit up. However as a normal vacuum, the unit is very good. Due to its small size it is very easy to manuver through tight spots. Suction is very good as well as the power head. The hose is of poor quality and tends to kink, but all in all a good vacuum. They just shouldn't claim HEPA filtration as the previous reviewer (mictrik) has pointed out so well. These days it isn't hard to find vacuums with HEPA filtration so passing this unit up wont be to big of a loss. Fix this issue and Bissell would have a true star.

3-0 out of 5 stars If you don't care about HEPA filter - quite good choice
Ok. I reported "air flow problem through power cord attachment place" to the Bissell and that's what they gave me:

"I have been advised that the air release you describe is in the design of the machine and this issue is not unique to your vacuum. It is normal for some air to pass through the filter and some to vent from the bottom of the machine.

The air that passes through the HEPA filter captures over 99.9% of dust mites, pollen, and ragweed."

No offence to the customer support agent she just gave information what she had to give (provided by tech department, I believe)

But still.. this is a crap. How come HEPA filer could work if more than 90% of airflow goes not through the filter?!

If you do not care about HEPA filter, it still very good choice - it's quiet, has a nice look, very good telescoping pipe.

5-0 out of 5 stars works great on my hardwood floors
Originally, bought this the first time I saw it at Linens-N-Things, then decided to see if I could find it cheaper online. Cheapest I could find was the J&R Music and Computer World price at Amazon, but when I read the customer review that said, despite its claims, it didn't actually work on hardwood floors, I decided I had better test out the one I'd already bought since ALL I have are hardwood (90%), vinyl, and a bit of ceramic tile.

IT WORKED BEAUTIFULLY ON MY HARDWOOD FLOORS, picked everything up, and I have not admittedly swept or vacuumed them since before Thanksgiving, PLUS I had just gotten rid of some cats, so there was litter to sweep up - just make sure the beater bar is turned off, but the suction is turned on (which it is not turned on out-of-the-box), either that or you have a defective product.

On top of that, it's lightweight, swivels nicely, is quiet (as vacuums go), easy to lug about the apartment, has strong suction power, the bag appears to be easy to replace, and the attachments are fabulous - I actually prefer the smaller size. The trim around my floors is carved and caked w/years of re-painting; so, it was hard to clean them w/a rag - the crevice tool worked like a charm. I also cleaned a couch w/rather rough upholstery, two chairs w/smooth, silky upholstery, and a my computer chair with the upholstery attachment; as well as sweeping the window sills and attempting even to sweep the blinds with the dusting attachment. All of them rated 5 star in my book...

So unless you are really super duper concerned w/all that HEPA filter jazz another reviewer was complaining about, I would highly recommend this product. I've used really bad, old canisters, and mostly used uprights, and this vacuum is the best - if you have hardwood floors the canister is the way to go, but, even on carpets, I think I would prefer this particular model to an upright anyday, which are generally heavy and clunky to lug around, in my opinion (I originally tested the floor model on the berber carpet at LnT and it worked very well there, too, but I couldn't say for higher/thicker/whatever carpets).

1-0 out of 5 stars Don't be fooled you will not get true HEPA output!!
Yes this vacuum is lite, it's small, it has very good suction and reasonable (a bit small) tools. Though one of the biggest reasons many people buy it is for is it's proclaimed HEPA filtration. This seems like false advertising and I shall explain why. The unit is advertised to provide HEPA filtration but most of the exaust is not expelled through the filter!! Rather it is expelled through the rear of the vacuum where the cord is attached. This is likely because the unit is not sealed. A HEPA filter is attached on the exaust port at the top of the unit but exaust is routed out of cracks do to back-pressure from the HEPA filter. HEPA filters can catch particles as small as 3 microns and this makes them very resistant to air flow. Back pressure is built up due to this resistance and the resulting pressure forces the air to escape through paths of lesser resistance. Unfortunately this releases most all the molds, dust mites, and other allergins into the air. As matter of fact it seems that the filter may only filter 15% of the exaust on this vacuum, the rest finds its way out the cord release and other cracks. Bottom line the unit is flawed by design and saying it offers HEPA filtration is a lie. Anyone who designed this vacuum had to of known this to be true before it hit the market. Their is just about no way any design engineer could of overlooked this. Bissell desided to sell the unit anyway and claim it has HEPA filtration. What a con... Now many people will purchase this unit and never realize that it is not providing the level of filtration it advertised.
I did call their customer service and the service rep (very nice) did confirm that exaust was also expelled from the rear on the sample unit they had in the office. This was all he could say. I Would love to hear from someone at Bissell with regard to this. It would be nice to see a company stand behind their claims. Untill then no stars!!!

2-0 out of 5 stars Sucky
Based in part on the glowing reviews on this site, I purchased this Bissell 6900 vacuum for our small condo. Previously I used a Mighty-Mite canister vacuum for our place, but it has gotten quite old, the hose has a permanent crimp in it, and it never did a very good job on our few area rugs. Most of our floor is bare hardwood, however.

Turns out the Bissell is the exact opposite problem. When I turn on the brushes, it does quite a good job of cleaning our area rugs, but when I turn off the brush, it refuses to pick up anything more substantial than a dust bunny from the hardwood floor. It seems that the base is too wide to allow substantial suction, and there is nothing coming in contact with the floor to dislodge any stuck particles. I dumped a small amount of fresh cat litter on the hardwood floor and tried to pick it up with the Bissell. Very unsatisying, I could have done it faster and more thoroughly with a broom and dustpan.

It seems that a different attachment would work much better for bare floors than the standard one with the brushes, but alas, the one that comes with the vacuum is only about 3 inches wide. The claim that this vacuum works great for both carpet and hardwood seems totally bogus to me.

Some other notes:
- It is actually very quiet with the brushes turned off.
- Suction is also good, as tested by removing the cleaning head and using the various attachments.
- Telescoping feature is nice, but sometimes doesn't lock in place correctly when going over bumpy terrain
- Adjustible power feature seems kind of froofy; I'm not clear on what kind of person would say "well, the floor isn't really TOO dirty, let's ramp down the power a bit today..."

Summary: I wouldn't recommend this vacuum for anyone with more than a few patches of hardwood floor. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars An ingenious device...
I have found this disc title printer to be quite useful. As long as you buy blank CD/DVD's that have little preprinted writing on the front, you will have absolutely no problem printing quality, professional-looking labels on your discs. I rarely use the PC interface with the printer, instead opting to use the built-in screen for formatting my discs. Regardless, I have had no problems with this unit, and have found it to be very useful.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good Printer. Highly Recommended
The printer does what it is designed to do - Print text and simple graphic labels on 2 rectangular areas (top and bottom) of a CD or DVD.

The print quality is good provided that you use the right kind of CD/DVD. As most of the reviewers have pointed out, you must use media with smooth shiny areas for the label. The CD does not have to be totally blank. It just needs to have enough smooth surface for your label to print on it. Disk with matted surface is not going to work. I use the SONY CD-R and the TDK DVD+R with good results. Both of them have manufacture's logo on the surface but they also have plenty of smooth blank areas for top and bottom labels.

The easiest way to explore the printer's features is to use the Disc Printer software (download the latest version from Casio's website). One of the things that the software allows you to do is to import a Windows Media Playlist (.asx) file. Once the file is imported, the software can automatically creates labels for all the song titles in your playlist. I have tried that feature and it works great.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very Pleased, This Product Works Great!
This product works great! I read some of the negative statements and was a little reluctant to purchase it...but when I came across it at BJ's for $89 (after rebate) I figured I'd give it a try. Some of the negatives I've read was that you could only print on top and bottom of the cd or dvd...NOT TRUE!! Use your heads people. If you wish to print on the left or right middle of the cd (eg: a compact disc logo) simply import the graphic you want to use...rotate it so that after it prints the logo will be upright when the disc is turned to the left or right....then simply print on the top and bottom of the disc keeping the logo to the left or right depending on which side you want it. It's very easy to do. The templates and print options included in the software gives you almost unlimited options...you just need to use your head. After searching the net i was able to find cartriges in bundles of ten for $58. (5.80 a cartridge) @20 CDs per cartridge the cost is a mere 29 cents per cd or dvd. Not bad considering the professional results. You can also mix colors (not on the same line) if you're patient enough to print one line, change cartridge, then print another line. The unit needs a fairly smooth surface for best results...and quite frankly..the bare silver cd's look the best, even though it print on Memorex DVDs that are not completly smooth and have the memorex logo on them. Don't condem a product because you fail to follow directions. The Casio CW-75 does what it advertises and does it well...if you shop around it's cost effective..and if you have some patience and foresight you can get this to print almost any label you want on any part of the disc. Great Job Casio.

4-0 out of 5 stars Not Quite What I Expected
I recently received a Casio CW-75 as a gift (after dropping a hint that I'd seen one in a store).

The picture on the box shows a CD-R coming out of the printer, and even though no manufacturer's name or logo is visible, the markings on the CD-R bear a striking resemblance to the markings on the Sony CD-Rs that I had sitting on my desk. I immediately tried printing onto a few of the Sony CD-Rs, and the results were terrible.

After consulting the troubleshooting section of the manual, I tried adjusting the print density to its maximum setting. The results were better, but still unacceptable. Finally, I tried the test CD that came with the printer, and got much better results. The test CD had an absolutely smooth surface, whereas the Sony CD-R had a subtle texture to it.

The printer documentation mentioned a website address for information about the type of media recommended for use with the printer, but when I visited the website, I was greeted with a "sorry, now under construction" message. No help there.

I ended up buying some inexpensive Imix CD-Rs at a local office supply store. They have a perfectly smooth surface, and I've just printed a batch of 30 CD-Rs with very good results; only one disc came out less than perfect.

I also found it interesting that batteries ARE included with this printer, but NOT an AC adapter. The included batteries haven't died yet (after 30 good discs and about 10 test discs, each with 2 passes of printing on each), but I don't know how much life is left in them.

Incidentally, why does this thing run on batteries, anyway? Does Casio think people are going to be printing discs while they're out jogging or something? Before you get any ideas, let me point out that moving the printer while it's printing gives poor results. For best results, put this printer on a flat, stable surface and don't bump into it while it's in use.

The ribbon ran out after about 20 discs or so, which (as someone mentioned in another review) translates to about 50 cents per disc for labeling. In this case, that's more than DOUBLE the cost of the discs themselves, but the results really do look quite professional with the right combination of media and gentle care.

Using this printer as a standalone device was a little awkward, but the included software installed itself without a hitch, and it makes it MUCH easier to see what you're doing when laying out a label. I'd strongly recommend using the computer connection unless you have a very good reason not to do so.

Only time will tell if this labeling mechanism has any long-term adverse side effects. I was using paper labels for a long time before I discovered that after many months, they apparently shrink just a bit, which warps the CD-R into a slight bowl shape, and causes readability problems. I'm thinking that this Casio device is a much better idea than paper labels, if only for that reason.

4-0 out of 5 stars Does what it says; flawless software interface w/computer
The software install was very fast and went without a hitch. Loaded the batteries, installed the print cartridge, and connected to the computer with the included USB cable. Turning the printer on then prompts Windows XP to recognize the new hardware and load the drivers which you previously installed from the CD-ROM. This took 30 seconds.

Once that was done, I opened up the software and after clicking around a bit to see some of the formatting options, it took me less than ten minutes to put together a label for tomorrow night's MONK second season finale episode which I will burn onto DVD-R, with MONK at the top print area, and the episode name and original air date on the bottom print area. I used TDK brand DVD-R media which has a nice, large, smooth printable surface at the top and bottom.

Then I used the sample CD-R which comes with the machine, to burn a copy of a music CD. My results and observations of the machine's performance:

1. The software is pretty slick, and so far it works flawlessly. Depending on the type of disc you are printing (e.g. music, data, photos, etc.), it presents you with a variety of formatting options for the two print areas. With all formatting options, you can change the font name and size to whatever you have installed on your computer. All text formatting changes are immediately shown in the on-screen depiction of your label, so you can see right away if your text will fit into the print area the way you want it to appear. If you are printing in both print areas of the disc, the software prompts you to first align the disc in the tray for the top portion of the label...click print and it goes to it. Then the tray opens again, and the software prompts you to turn the disk so that it can print the lower print area.

2. I have not yet used the printer as a stand-alone...I will eventually try it out, but why bother with all those buttons and keys when I can easily get what I want much more easily on the computer?

3. The print quality is Pretty Darn Good. Larger, bolder and straighter fonts come out better than smaller, thin and curvy fonts, but in all cases you'll notice a slight "pixelization", or slightly rough edges. To my eye, it's only obvious if I hold the thing right up to my face. You can change the print density but I haven't played with that option yet, to see if it makes a difference. Overall, I'm happy with the print quality.

4. I'll be interested in seeing how the printing on the CD holds up from use in my car. The instructions say that use in such players causes wear on the print surface from the CD player's rollers that load the CD, which could cause the printing to eventually get worn off. Also says not to keep printed CDs where they'll get very hot, and not to store them in plastic-sleeve storage devices...I guess the ink can come off on the vinyl if it's in contact with it for very long.

5. Cost per print raised by others...bah! Definitely no comparison to the almost-zero cost of just writing on a disc with a marker, but my handwriting and printing looks like crap. Labels and ink jet ink aren't free, but probably cheaper than using this...but so what? And I'm starting to see some of the labels I've been using (Stomper and Avery) come up a little around the edges over time.

6. Power options: the battery power is great for me, because I don't have to find an empty outlet in my gaggle of power strips, and I can just pick the thing up and put it in a drawer when I'm done. On the other hand, I think Casio could have sprung for a measly A/C adapter instead of making it an option.

7. The CW-75 is not built like a tank. The drawer has a flimsy feel and does not close as precisely as it should. The unit is lightweight and...well, just think of your last Casio calculator or adding machine to get an idea of its general construction, fit, and finish. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Not perfect, but works well
I've had mine for a few days, and am mostly happy with it, though it's taken a little adjusting:

1.When connecting to my Mac, though the Profiler sees it always, I have to turn it on and then plug in the usb cable at just the right time to get the Mac to mount it as a drive.It seems to be just after the logo goes away and the normal display appears.

2.Before I figured that out, I called OS Saturday and got right in.While they didn't know what the problem was, they did say they'd send me a shipping label to send it in for repair.

3.Run the goggle straps over the earbuds to keep them in place, and do it before you get any water in your ears, or you'll have a hard time hearing it.

4.The volume max is about a normal listening level.I had to adjust my breathing to breath out to the side just before my mouth comes out of the water to take a breath --- otherwise, the bubbles drown it out.


I don't know what amazon is smoking, but I've not found any voice recorder in it --- there's no microphone or input.

4-0 out of 5 stars WATERPROOF MP3!
Well,
I've had this product for about a week now and I havent had any problems with it.When i first pluged it in, it turned on and then went off but I soon found the problem was I had not inserted the USB 2.0 cable far enough in.This fixed I have so far had no problems with it.The radio works great, I use it at the gym where they have TV's on radio FM broadcasters and its fine.I used to have a sony sport armband radio for working out and it was a lot bigger with no storage.It also had a hard time picking up the signal in some areas of the gym and the cord was really use.The oregon has had no problem with this and I am happy with the product.The 256mb is plenty of music for a workout, but if your looking for stricktly an MP3 player check somewhere else.I would rate it a five if they supplied an arm band or something for running but all in all I am happy with it.

1-0 out of 5 stars Not impressed
I'm now on my second MP120 and just been advised this also needs replacing. The first only had one working earphone. The second worked OK but I was unable to forward or rewind between tracks so I guessed a firmware upgrade would probably fix this - applied as detailed in the manual from the Oregon Scientific website and now it won't turn on.

Advise from Oregon - send back to the vendor for a replacement!

I've will almost have spent more on postage than the original purchase!

1-0 out of 5 stars Utter Rubbish & Very Poor Customer Support
I bought the 512MB model of this product a few days ago, set it up, plugged it into my computer and it worked for less than one minute.I have sent several e-mails to Oregon Scientfic and their selling agent (ExploraTrac), they have not even bothered to answer them.Contacted them on their 800 number several times and was told I would be contacted, no response.This is not a cheap product (at least in terms of price), however, in terms of quality it is absolute and utter rubbish and the companies customer service is non-existent.I would strongly recommend that no one purchase this product.I would rate it at zero stars if possible, the only thing they did correctly was take my money and ship this piece of junk to me.

4-0 out of 5 stars Finally a waterproof MP3 player!
I purchased this player for the sole purpose of using it while I swim laps and I have not been disappointed. I've been using it for two weeks now and it's a great little player. My only complaint is that it is difficult to get the earbuds positioned correctly. At first I was afraid if they popped out while swimming it would be all over for them but that has not been the case. I'm not sure if these earbuds would stay in place if I didn't pull my swim cap down to help secure them. It's very important that you remove the rubber earbuds after each use and allow the underlying parts to dry out. You can use regular headphones with this player if you don't need the waterproof feature. Overall I'm very happy with this player. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great 4mp camera!!!!!!!
I have this Olympus D565 for about a month. I love this camera. It is easy to use, small, fits anywhere. I bought this camera for $299.99 at OfficeMax AND it came with a Espon 5400 all in one printer!
I do recommend getting a higher XD-Picture Card for this camera, It comes with a 16MB card, you only take 5 pictures at high res. I got a 128MB card with that you can take 44 high res pictures.
This camera can take AA batteries which you can get anywhere.It has a strong flash for this size camera.
The pictures came out great, easy to download to your computer.
Great software with this camera. You cant beat this price for a 4MP camera.
You can download the manual and see if it fits your needs. This is a great 4MP camera!!!!

4-0 out of 5 stars Best bet for your buck on 4 MPs !!!!
At first, I was pretty disappointed with the picture quality.
3-4 pictures out of every 10, came out blurry! So make sure you read that manual before you get started! D-565 is just a bit more than a "point & shoot" camera and if you learn how to use it, you will love the crisp picture quality and it's ease of use! Alkaline batteries are totally out of question as this camera has really been designed to use rechargeable NiMH or CR-V3 Batteries. My rechargeable Kodak NiMH batteries can take a good 150 pictures before they run out of juice. The only two negative things about this camera in my opinion are:
-The auto focus is relatively slow.
-The Low Battery warning will start flashing too early when the batteries are still almost half way full.
Aside from the minor things above, I think this camera is probably the best bet for your buck on 4MPs.

I've been a professional photographer for more than 30 years (4x5, 220, 35mm, etc.) and a maxim is: NEVER use an unknown piece of equipment for an unrepeatable event! My old 35mm died on the day I had to fly out for a funeral. I bought the D-565 and 128Mb card at a supermarket on my way to the airport. READ THE MANUAL, loaded fresh batteries, shot test pix at airport - SMILED!! Bottom line: Great focus, color saturation, flash/fill, ease of use, subject satisfaction! 6 to 8 shots on alkaline batteries - ordered AC Adapter from Amazon.com - carry pocket full of AA's when prowling for shots. Love it! Pix are incredible on my Big-Screen TV!!
Gripes: Sucks AA's dry far too quickly. REALLY needs NiMH's or recommended AC adapter for downloads, etc.
Get a D-565 while you can and get out there!

2-0 out of 5 stars Good picture quality, but poor user interfaces
This is our first family digital camera. We bought it mainly because it was on sale, and it came with the highest mega pixel in the market at the time of purchase. It produces good quality pictures I must say. However, the design of user-interface for the camera need more improvement. I agree with one the reviewer who mentioned that the cover slides open easily, and even a slight push on the cover while taking pictures would turn the camera off, which was annoying as one has to push the cover open again and wait for the lense to extent, an anti-climax for people wanting a quick shot! another weakpoint about its-user interface, is that, one can't view the pictures with the cover 'open'. One has to turn off the camera (closing the cover), and only then the viewfinder menu would work. pretty annoying when one wishes to view the picture immediately after the shot, needing to shut down the camera, view and turn it on again for the next shot! I think the viewfinder uses up too much battery, and we had to reserve energy by switching off the viewfinder while taking pictures! what do you think? having a viewfinder is one of the main feature of a digital camera!!!! I think the camera should be designed to recharge the batteries without having to remove them, and this camera uses AA batteries, which dries out very quickly when we use the viewfinder. Another bummer today.. I was transfering the photos from the camera to my PC and and the camera has to be turned on all the while (meaning the cover has to be opened with the lenses extended). without realising it, the battery ran out, now I can't retract the lenses and it is still sticking out till I get home to change the batteries! How high tech! Guess I have more dissapointment to discover! This is an expensive lesson to learn on digital cameras. For first timers, I would suggest to invest some money on digital cameras magazines and check out reviews on the Net, learn more about them, go to shops, toy with them before buying them impulsively!!! Am looking for a new camera now!

4-0 out of 5 stars Simple to use, great pictures
I recently bought this for some travels and have found it to be a superb camera. It's simple to use, nice small size, takes great pictures, download is easy... what else can I say!

If you're looking for a great quality digital camera (4mp for this price is worth it) that's easy to use, this is the one. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Very Unhappy
I agree with vu972. Terrible quality pictures. The flash makes them look washed out and when you are in broad daylight the pictures look like they were taken in a dark room. I'm shocked that they can advertise that it takes good pictures. I know this is a fairly inexpensive camera and I didn't expect a lot from it, but this doesn't even reach the standards to be worth $100.00. The menu is slow and freezes at times, there is a delay in the time between pressing the button and it taking the picture. You have to hold the button in and make sure you keep the camera completely steady in hopes that you will get the shot you were aiming for.

5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect Digital Camera
Easiest to use camera ever. Everything needed right out of the box.
Point and shoot...great pix. Its so small and compact that I can take it everywhere. Finally a really nice camera that won't break the bank.Thank you DXG!!!!

1-0 out of 5 stars Very Disappointed!
I bought this camera thinking it'd be great with its combo features. But as it turns out the quality of this camera sucks big time! When taking pictures without a flash, the picture looks dark and not white balance correctly (even though it's set to auto-white balance) then when I turns the flash on, it looks completedly washed out... Then when I tested the PC Camera mode, it works fine with its included software driver but the quality again sucks big time, it looks like I'm sitting in front of a computer in a dark room... and the adjustment in the software don't even work...
I'm putting the camera back on EBay the next day! Not Recommended! For $50 more, I'd have a lot better camera!! ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Works well but strap is too big
I used to have a Polar heart monitor but lost the watch. I decided to go with this model because it's less expensive. I have an average women's size body and the adjustable strap that goes around your chest is too big for me. Since the smallest that the strap adjusts to is too big, I have it adjusted with a bunch of the strap material flopping around on my back (I didn't have this problem with Polar). It's annoying and will require a sewing experiment some time soon. The heart monitor part works well though. Mine came with a neato bag and bike or exercise equipment holder for the transmitter (watch). ... Read more

User's Manual and Multilingual Quick Start Guide
CD-ROM including Multilingual User Manual in PDF format

Intro: I was looking for a low-priced camera with a color LCD, decent megapixels and a reasonable price, and I found one.

Hookups: The computer reads the camera as a USB mass-storage device, not a digital camera. This makes it possible that you don't have to load any drivers if you have Windows XP or ME. You will have to load the camera drivers for previous versions of Windows. You just drag and drop the pictures with practically no waiting, even for videos. You can also hook this camera straight-up to your TV via the camera's "Video Out" and the supplied video cable to view your pictures and videos.

Memory: Camera includes 7 MB integrated memory. Also accepts Secure Digital cards to store pictures and movies on from 8 to 512 MB.

Display: The smoothness of the 1.6" color TFT LCD really surprised me, 27 fps to be exact. I expected it to be choppy, not the case. Very smooth video feed. The only way it can be choppy is if you move the camera very fast. You can view your pictures and videos as thumbnails on the display if you want. The display tells you, when it's on, is: the camera mode, flash and white balance settings, battery level, image quality and resolution, self-timer (if on), memory card (if inserted), and frame counter (how many pictures you have taken and how many you have left).

Interface: You can switch between taking pictures and reviewing taken pictures on-the-fly via a switch on the back. You have to go through the menu to delete pictures and videos though, no delete button.

Settings: "White Balance" and "Exposure Value" can be adjusted to your liking. The brightness of the display can also be changed. Auto-shutoff time can be off, 15, 30, 60, or 90 seconds. You can also change the picture resolution and quality as stated in the next section. Flash can be set to "On", "Off", or "Auto". White Balnce can be set to "Auto", "Sunny", "Flourescent", and "Tungsten".

Picture Capacity: The manual says you can take only 7 pictures at the highest quality, but the camera can handle 9. You can go all the way up to 205 pictures at the lowest quality using the included 7 MB integrated memory.

Picture Quality: Pictures are taken in the JPEG format. Picture quality is determined by the combination of picture resolution and quality. The resolutions available are 1600x1200 (2.0 MP), 1280x960 (1.2 MP), and 640x480. The picture quality can be "Fine", "Normal", or "Economy". At the "Fine" quality and at 1600x1200 (the highest possible quality), you can manage 9 pictures. At the same resolution and "Normal" quality, you can get 21 pictures at almost the same quality. I couldn't tell the difference. I can easily compare the highest picture quality of this camera to a one-time-use camera. Pictures can be better quality if you hold the camera still for about a second when you snap a picture. Action shots are nearly impossible due to the slow shutter speed.

Flash: The flash really surprised me and others. In a completely dark room, I can take great pictures. I showed some pictures to my parents and they were very impressed when I told them the room was completely dark. You just have to make sure you are a few feet away from the subject to get a good picture or it'll be whited out.

Videos: Videos are taken in the AVI format. This camera cannot act as a webcam, you take pictures and movies with it. This model can take 34 second videos at highest quality with the included 7 MB integrated memory. The videos are quite smooth, better than I expected, 15 fps to be exact.

No Macro Mode: There is no macro mode with this camera, making all close-ups a little blurry. The focal range on this camera claims to be 1.2 meters to infinity. So, to get good shots you have to be that far away.

Zoom: Wasn't a big deal to me, but the included 4x digital zoom is a nice touch. ... Read more

19. Hoover U5162-900 Fold Away Bagless Upright Vacuum with Fold Down Handle

Amazon.com Review

Big on cleanliness, but short on storage? The 12-amp Hoover Fold Away solves the problem by outfitting a full-size upright with a collapsible handle. Folded up, the vacuum stands just 24-1/2 inches high, so it is easy to store in cupboards and closets with shelving. It's suitable for bare floors as well as carpets and comes with automatic tool conversion for cleaning above the floor. The Fold Away has three adjustable nozzle heights, a 13-inch cleaning path, and a revolving brush roll with an edge-cleaning design. Dirt collection is conveniently bagless, and the handle-style cup release makes for simple emptying. The cup's tap-clean pleated dust filter captures 100 percent of dust particles and 99.98 percent of ragweed and pollen.

The Fold Away's compact structure does come with some adaptations--the power switch, cord hooks, and attachments are all closer to the ground than on other models. Once you get used to it, though, conversion to attachment cleaning is quick and simple, and the set of tools is thorough--an extension wand, a crevice tool, a dusting brush, and an upholstery cleaner. Other nice details include a headlight, stair-cleaning handle, exhaust filter, and pair of quick-release cord hooks. Hoover backs the vacuum with a one-year warranty. --Emily Bedard ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Bagless doesn't mean messless
I had a Hoover with a bag that was pushing eight years, so I thought this model looked like a decent replacement, and I liked the idea of the fold-down handle. However, after having to dump out the container and clean the filter, I'm still wondering what's so great about a bagless vacuum. I'd rather replace a bag four times a year than wrestle with the mess of the bagless after every couple of vacuums. I do like the fold-down handle, although it makes getting the power cord wound correctly a bit difficult, and this model has larger wheels than my old one, which makes handling a bit better. It's decent, but if I had pets or kids probably wouldn't be sufficient.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great for pets
I had another Hoover that was 2 years old and caught of fire. I found this one for 69.99 and thought I would give it a try. It has a much better suction than my old Hoover. I did one small section of my bedroom (5 x 5) and filled the canister with dog hair and dust. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because you have to make sure the onboard hose is securely attached to the output hose on the vacuum itself to make sure you are getting the maximum suction. It is a little messy to empty, but I just dump it outside in a trash bag and I am done.

3-0 out of 5 stars Wish I had Waited
A good deal at $59.99, especially after I paid $84.14 to Amazon and now feel like a sucker.

1-0 out of 5 stars Not the vacuum I hoped for
I recently purchased this vacuum cleaner since it was fold away. I also liked the idea that it was bagless. I noticed the first time I used it that I was vacuuming the same spot over and over to get it clean. It wasn't picking up the minor stuff (i.e. lent), much less anything else. I tried cleaning the filter and everything else the manual recommends to improve suction. Nothing worked! I am now shopping for a new vacuum since this one is terrible. If you want a vacuum that sucks in a good way, this isn't the one.

5-0 out of 5 stars This vacuum really sucks!
Of course, that's exactly what a great vacuum is supposed to do!!!

The fold down handle is a lot sturdier than I had imagined, and it picks up EVERYTHING! The filter has to be checked occasionally, but that's true of almost all bagless systems.

Great product! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars great product for killing mosquitoes
I was suprised at the other reviews this product got, but I do understand why. I use this product solely indoors to control mosquitoes and it works great. I've never used it outdoors because I have another similar zapper that's meant for outdoor usage. The latter product I would never consider bringing indoor because it makes way to much noise and you can actually hear bugs lizards etc. actually getting fried.

This product however works silently and does an excellent eliminating mosquitoes in our three bedroom home. I live in the caribbean by the way, where mosquitoes are an everyday problem.

1-0 out of 5 stars Worst zapper ever.
The plastic case surrounding the light has terribly small grid spacing... only the smallest gnats can actually make it to the coil. Unbelievably bad product.

1-0 out of 5 stars DON'T BUY THIS.....
I wish I had seen the other review before purchasing this. It is a waste of money.

You get a nice blue light that has yet to kill any bugs... Have had it plugged in for two weeks and I've got the bug bites to prove it...

1-0 out of 5 stars Useless
This is amazingly useless. The black light is nice and attracts bugs from all around, but the zapper is so weak, the bugs crawl across the wires with no harm done. Piece of junk. ... Read more
