When my wife and I moved last year, she didn’t own a vacuum, and I had a massive canister one that was a hand-me-down from my Uncle. I looked up the model and it came out in 1988. So it’s a big old….and huge. So when we moved I wanted something super light. So we purchased a lightweight battery powered vacuum.

My wife hates it.

I don’t mind it, but she hates having to recharge the battery, and it’s small and light, which is nice for stair….but we don’t have that many stairs.

Enter the Eureka Endeavor NLS. It’s not small. It’s not electric. But man can this thing SUCK!

ha ha.

The NLS stands for “No Loss of Suction”.

It’s very powerful, and it worked especially well on our carpet. Though we did use it on our fake hardwood kitchen area as well, and it did pretty good there as well.


  • Lots of power
  • Easy to empty (no bags!)
  • Surprisingly nimble for it’s size
  • Price: $79.88 at Walmart


  • Bulky, and pretty loud
  • Lots of plastic

Overall for the price, it’s a pretty darn good vacuum.

And now my wife is happy : ).

What do you think are the most important features in a vacuum.

Disclosure: We received this vacuum as a review unit to keep. Which is awesome, cause we needed a vacuum! End disclosure.
