We have had several other cordless, rechargable vacuums in the past 2 years and non of them worked...but this one does! It has good power, the charge lasts a long time and it looks good. The recharge stand is easy to use. I would recommend this to anyone.
I so love this vacuum! I bought it primarily for my dark hardwood floors which run through my whole first floor-living room, dining room, kitchen, and a guest bath. I have two black cats and a cream frenchie who are the main reason I needed something other than a broom and microfiber sweeper and this vacuum does the job!! It gets all the fur and food crumbs. I do run through with a microfiber sweeper after I vacuum if I am going to damp mop and there is little to nothing left behind just a little dust. It makes my job so much simplier than before. The versitility is great with the hand vac and attachments. It works well on low carpeting but does not like thicker, shaggier rugs. Cleaning the vacumm is even nice. The "dinger" as I call it really does knock all the dust off the filter without having to touch it. And the port which allows you to attach your full size vacuum to the front of it allows you to vacuum the inside out nicely. Overall Bravo! to Electrolux. Now I know why my Mother owned an ancient blue Electrolux canister vac forever!!
I purchased this when we moved to a new home, for the hardwood floors on the 1st floor. It is easy to use and easy to clean. There is a bolt that has fallen out a couple of times, but we have managed to put it back in. Works well after five months of just about daily use.
This is the most compact, easy to use vacuum for quick clean ups. That is the key, easy. It mounts on the wall with the charger, so it is always ready when you are. The hand vac comes off easily and is just as powerful. It is great for wood floors and bends completely flat for under beds, cabinets and couches. Clean up is a breeze too. The dust filter has a spring that you pull and it expels the dust easily. I recommend this part deep into your trash can or outside. So awesome, I bought one for my Mom and weekend home.
I am very impressed with this compact vacuum. I thought that it would only be good enough to clean my hard wood floors but it turns out it does a great job on my carpets. It has a very modern charger with a bright light that allows you to know that it is charging.
I have gone through three of these things, and I won't be buying one every again. They work well at first, but then lose suction and end up spitting dirt everywhere. Super frustrating when you're trying to pick dirt up--not spread it all over the place.
This is 6 one I have bought. 3 for graduation gifts. 1 for my sister and others for me. Very light. Easy to put together. I just make sure I empty trash after EVERY vacuum, as it keeps the vacuum ready to use and section great. I get any hair off rollers after every use too. Picks up great on hardwood floor.
I had this exact model and wore it out after four years. Had to order one right away because I use it to often. it's so convenient. Love having no cord to plug in. Two sisters and my mother both got this model per my recommendation and they love it too.
I really like this vacuum; but I purchased for use more along the lines of "dust-busting." If you want an actual vacuum, this is not a good choice and you will be disappointed with this. I have a full sized vacuum and I use this for the day to day "in-between" cleanings. I like its weight and it has pretty decent suction. You have to be diligent about emptying the chamber and rinsing the filter if you want it to stay that way (again, dust buster). It is super cute so I leave it out in the kitchen which makes it really convenient. It is also intuitive enough and well sized for my pre-schooler to operate on his own. I like that he can "clean up" after himself (start em young!!). It works pretty well under his chair at the table with low pile carpet, and otherwise I use it on hardwoods and tile. If you are looking at a shag situation this is probably not the tool for you.
