At just 8.2 pounds, the Eureka Mighty Mite 3670G is very lightweight, and it's certainly inexpensive. While reviewers say it isn't the best choice for carpet or rugs, owners agree that it works very well for vacuuming bare floors such as tile and wood. Reviewers say its small size helps with maneuverability and makes it easy to carry, but some think it's too noisy. This budget model also lacks many of the features of standard vacuums, such as HEPA filtration, onboard tool storage and a retracting cord. We also saw a few complaints about this vacuum's durability. Those who have a lot of carpet to cover will be better off with the Electrolux Oxygen Canister EL6988E (*Est. $325) , which does a nicer job on area rugs and low-pile carpets.
