    "Originally, i was looking for the best canister vacuum for hardwood floors, but seeing this made me buy a roomba instead. because it can roam around my house freely, i have more time to do other things. Being a working girl in this time, you really dont have time to clean your floors. Honestly, this is the best decision i ever made."
