Kelly is looking for a new vacuum and is considering the Electrolux Pronto: "I'm looking for a good "stick vacuum" and am hoping some readers will have suggestions on what to purchase. We have an Electrolux that is rather clunky and heavy and has decided to start giving us problems. We also have a SwifferVac and its battery just gave out. So, we're in the market for a nice lightweight vacuum that will work well on our hard wood and tile floors, and to occasionally use on carpeting...

We looked at the Electrolux Pronto at the store and it seems good, but it received mixed reviews on Amazon. We looked at models at WalMart and they all looked like they'd break within 2 years (what do you expect from a $40 vacuum?). I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with the Electrolux Pronto or if they have any recommendations of other stick vacuums to use (or ones to avoid)."

Please add your reviews of the Electrolux Pronto OR recommendations for other good stick vacuums in the comments...thanks!
