The Eureka Boss 4870GZ gets a good review for being unique and delivering dependability.Hello Readers,

Well, the move from text to video is proving difficult. Your Sensei is still trying to find a decent camera, if anyone out there has any advice on a good camera for internet movies let me know! The script is written, actually the first three scripts are written, we’re just waiting on my of my tech savvy helpers to have a little extra time to start production. He wants to have a career in movies and film; I promised him credits!

Vacuum Review: Eureka 4870GZ Smart-Vac

Price: $149.99

Anyway, in lieu of a video review I thought it was high time I bring my readers another in depth, text based vacuum review. I’ve decided to take a close look at the Eureka 4870GZ Eureka Boss. It’s an extremely popular vacuum cleaner and deserves a close look!

Air Selector Switch
There was one feature in particular that caught my eye. When I’m vacuuming my house and I disconnect the hose to dust or pick up a few rebellious scraps of paper, I always wonder how much more powerful the suction of the hose would be if ALL the suction was directed through the suction hose. Well, the Eureka 4870GZ Boss Smart Vac is one of the first vacuum cleaners to let me know! The Eureka 4870GZ includes what Eureka calls an Air Selector Switch that directs all the suction from the cleaning head to the suction hose and vice versa. It’s a remarkable feature!

HEPA Filter
If you’ve read more than a few pages of my vacuum review site, you’ll notice that I really like vacuum cleaners with HEPA filters. That’s because they reduce a lot of dust and allergens that cause people like me allergies and sleeping problems. The Eureka 4870GZ comes equipped with a HEPA filter.

Replaceable Light Bulb
Okay, this was another one of the features I was impressed with. Most vacuum cleaners with built in headlights require users to go through a long, drawn out process to replace the light. The Eureka 4870GZ includes simple instructions for removing a burnt out bulb, something I think the vacuum industry in general should emulate. It’s a little thing, but it’s a little thing I really like about the Eureka Boss.

Suction Power
I don’t have too much to say on this subject. I can sum up my sentiments with the word “extremely satisfied”. Definitely not the most powerful upright on the market, but you’re not going to be disappointed.

I’m satisfied with the price, you might want to check on Amazon every now and then for sales and price breaks.

Assembly for the Eureka 4870GZ requires attaching the vacuum handle and screwing in a few screws. It should take all of 5 minutes for the average person.

What I Didn’t Like
Overall, the Eureka Boss 4870GZ is a strong showing from Eureka. The only complaint I have is with the Power Paw. I was not impressed with it’s performance.
