A while back I had asked for recommendations about a vacuum cleaner and wanted to spend less than $200. Everyone was suggesting a Dyson with a pet hair feature that was over $400 and I just wasn’t going to pay that but the more I looked online, the more frustrated I got. There are so many vacuums with so many features and it’s been forever since I had to buy a vacuum cleaner. I had a Rainbow that lasted forever and a day and then had the central vac that came with the house in MO so finally, I just said to Mr. Super Shopper (Vince): Honey, will you find me a vacuum cleaner? I want one that works with pet hair, that works with hard floor and with carpet and I want to spend less than $200. Ahhh . . Vince was on a mission. He researched, read Consumer Report, read customer reviews and decided on the LG LuV300B, which after a rebate or coupon, was a good bit less than $200. What’s funny, is that after it arrived, I noticed it’s one of the things advertised in the BlogHer ads in my sidebar.
It arrived before my parents got here and because Fed Ex didn’t have the gate code yet, I drove down to the gate to get it and it’s been in the back of my car til yesterday when I threatened to give up cooking and everything else that makes my husband happy if he didn’t get that blasted vacuum cleaner out of my car and put it together. Yes . . don’t tell me . . you would have done it yourself. If I do something like that once, it’s my job forever and I don’t need another job around here!
I love this vacuum cleaner. I think Vince loves it too. It is quite a vacuum cleaner for the price.
I’m not recommending this vacuum cleaner yet. I’ll use it for a while and then let you know what I think. So far, I will tell you that it has about 10 times more sucking power than the central vac did; the cord is a mile long – which I love. Not sure if you can see how much dirt is in the canister but it’s mostly just sand and it’s from one narrow, long runner type rug!
I’ll do an update on the LG LuV300B in a few months.
