A Kirby Sentria vacuum review states: “The Kirby Sentria vacuum cleaner works like none other. It’s absolutely the best, that is if you can afford the steep price. But, in this case it is worth every penny. You can buy it cheaper online than if you have a sales person show up at your door (try Amazon). Plus, there are a fair amount of people selling them slightly used.
The suction on the Kirby Sentria vacuum (G10) is amazing. The auto drive feature is great, you almost don’t even have to push the machine to move it along carpets. I really love the attachments that come with it. It’s pretty much like an all-in-one upright, canister, stick & carpet cleaner. Although, the carpet cleaning part isn’t the best I’ve seen.
One thing I don’t like is how heavy it is. It’s hard to drag up and down stairs, or even all over the house. Also, if you don’t want to use it as an upright, you’ll have to take off the front peice and latch the attachments to the hose. It’s kind of a pain to do. The Kirby Sentria vacuum is definitely worth the money, and should last a very long time.”
