Eureka SuctionSeal AS1101A
On paper, the is a great vacuum. It's only $135, has a ton of useful features, and does a great job getting dirt out of short pile carpet. But unless you're a janitor at Dunder Mifflin, you're not vacuuming on paper. In the real world, the SuctionSeal still does a great job getting dirt out of short pile carpet, but it's also totally ineffective on hardwood floors when used as directed. It's also about as easy to handle as a greased raccoon.
