Pros:Cheap, good pet hair pickup, light/stable.  Washable HEPA available. 

Cons:Cheap hose, not quiet, no integrated hose storage.  No Paw storage onboard.

The Bottom Line: It does the job without breaking the bank. Not fancy, but has more than the bare minimum.  Works for me.


Got the machine to clean the hardwood downstairs portion of a townhouse, and to clean the carpeted stairs. 
I have cats, so sweeping wasn't cutting it, and my upright just stirred up all the allergens and redistributed the dust gorillas growing out of  cat hair dust bunnies. 
The "Paw" attachment does a decent job of cleaning the stairs and picking up cat hair.  It wraps long hair, but the thing comes apart for easy cleaning, and a sharp pair of scissors will cut any wrapped hair so it can be sucked up the open hose easily. 
The Floor tool picks up everything quite well, and does a good job of getting to the edges. 
I do like that you can adjust the vacuum suction for drapes and dusting fragile items like Kachinas, with feathers and shells and loose attachments.  But the brush is inelegant.  Too-stiff bristles are ok for scrubbing speaker enclosure grilles, but not for delicate items.  Find a soft-bristled brush to use. 

The hose is Not Good.  You can completely flatten it between your arthritic thumb and  forefinger, so forget about it retaining shape if you step on it.  Kinks easily, and that will lead to it's premature cracking and failing. 
Be nice if they offered an upgraded version with better hoses and more tools. 

It's NOT quiet.  Quieter than some I've used, like a rainbow or my current upright, but it's still scaring the cats.   

It heats up quickly, but I've not had to cool it off before I finish. 

It is very light and easy to carry around while you vacuum, and I just had major abdominal surgery this year, so I still can't lift two gallons comfortably.   This is an easy vac to use.  Wish it had a rewind for the cord and another couple feet of cord.  But then you'd pay a weight premium. 

It sits stably on stair steps, but because it's so light, it can be knocked down easily.  Better if you have it sitting on the stairs above you, or over your shoulder on a strap. 

Bag is easy to change, but not found in the big discount stores.  Go online and buy a slew of them at once.  You can get them online for around $1 a bag delivered , and it takes a few major cleanings until you need to change the bag, so it's fairly economical. 
I like the bagless types, but asthma makes bags a healthier choice for me. 

The plastic housing is very static-y.  treat with a static reducer and it won't be such a problem.
