I bought the latest model 3 months ago. It cleans all of my floors (wood, tile, vinyl) quite well. Main problem I have with this mop is that changing mopheads (e.g., the one for all floors vs. the one for wood floors) is nowhere as easy as shown on the infomercial--you need to have very strong hands. And unless you wait till the mop has cooled off, removing a mophead results in being scalded by hot water drips. Also, it's a good idea to use distilled water, as regular water may leave streaks.
