This powerful, efficient little guy came in record time (got free shipping) and was well received as a gift to my Daughter-in-law who had worn a used one like it out after we passed it down to her. She has hardwoods and it's a lifesaver!
I did my research and this is a "Best Seller" vacuum. For the price you can't beat it! I have 3 kids (2 toddlers) and minimal closets to fit cleaning supplies, so there goes the idea of a huge, all powerful vacuum. This vacuum fits everywhere! I joke that it's such a good vacuum it could suck up an M&M from a mile away. It can't of course, but it can suck them up from under my couch, a couple inches away! This vacuum is so good that I really only have to go over a spot once and it gets everything. I wouldn't trade it!
I've been using this mighty little vacuum for several months now. Something I love about it is that it is a very lightweight machine with excellent suction. My expensive upright model is heavy, and although it's better on carpets than the Mighty Mite, the upright aggravates pain in my back whereas the Mighty Mite does not. I now use the Mighty Mite on all my non-carpeted surfaces and am very pleased with its performance. I was reluctant to purchase it given how inexpensive it is (thinking of the old "you get what you pay for"). Definitely worth the money, plus... One caution, make sure the wand pieces are put together firmly or they may separate during use.
My home is small and mainly wood floors, so this vacuum is really very good for me. Powerful suction. I was shocked actually how powerful. It is light weight and has two extra long arm attachments. It is perfect for tiny and hard to reach places and ceiling corners. BUT, the attachment for a carpet stinks. Forget trying to roll that over anything with texture, it will be a misery to do. I would not recommend this for a large living space or a home with a lot of carpeting.
