Pros:Inexpensive, powerful, light, quiet, convenient. My dream vacuum!

Cons:The handle caddy doesn't hold the implements very tightly and they sometimes fall out.

The Bottom Line: It looks like a toy but cleans like the heavy old Electrolux my mother owned. Wow!!


For thirty years I used an old Kenmore canister vacuum. By the time I got around to buying a new vacuum, I was having to rake the kitty litter into the nozel. Okay, I'm not much of a house keeper. I bought this with a bit of trepidition, wondering how well it would do the job because it's such a tiny thing. Well, I'm in love. This is the first vacuum cleaner with a wand that actually collapses to a size short enough for me, so I don't get back aches using it. It's incredibly powerful on my bare floors and does a fantastic job--full suction actually causes it to stick to the floor a bit, but with TWO suction adjustments, that's no problem. The telescoping wand lets me pick off the spider webs in that show up now and again on my high beamed ceilings without a stool. Two handles, a cord that really retracts, light as a feather for hauling up and down stairs. Bags look small but hold quite a bit. Doesn't scare the cats to death because it's whisper quiet. I can listen to music while I sweep, never disturb my husband when he's sleeping or watching TV in the same room. Having the implements mounted on the handle is so convenient. Now I don't have any carpets, so I wouldn't know how it does on those, but the bare-floor tool is a dream. It is actually cute and the way the wand stores on the back keeps it from becoming floor clutter like most vacuums are when they're stored. Did I say I love it!!!? Yeah!!!
