While it does a very good job in vacuuming, it is not that powerful. Therefore, if you are looking for a super powerful vacuum, this is NOT it. The area where this product really excels is in its maneuverability and how portable it is. We have several vacuum cleaners in two different floors. I just noticed that I have been using this unit in both floors most of the time! It does a decent job in vacuuming and it is so easy to take it everywhere in the house. In some way, it is just like an Apple product. It may not have the most impressive specs, but its usability is great… it just works and does its job well. It is also the most quiet vacuum cleaner I have ever owned! Overall, its build quality and style are pretty good. The construction of the handle is slightly on the flimsy side. Again, depending on what you are looking for, this may or may not be your ideal vacuum cleaner. If you are not expecting a super powerful vacuum cleaner, then this could be the one you are looking for. Happy shopping and cleaning!
