Pros/Cons of Upright Vacuum

Last month I posted a thread about needing help in choosing a vacuum.  After reading all the responses and looking through Consumer Reports, I decided to purchase the Kenmore Intuition.  I will be returning it because there are too many cons about an upright vacuum, IMO.

CONS

~doesn't get under cabinets and dressers, because of the bulkiness

~doesn't get all the way under tables, because the handle doesn't lower far enough to keep the beater bar on the floor

~not good for someone with carpal tunnel, because it is so hard to maneuver and heavy

~the vents on the side and back of the vacuum cause dirt, hair, dust to blow around so it seems I'm chasing around all the debris

~I don't like how all the attachments are on the outside of the vacuum, because they get knocked off too easily

~don't like that I have to bend over to adjust carpet height


PROS

~great suction power

~easy to store
