I love the size, the power and the ease of using this handy little vacuum. I live in a small home and we also have an RV. I wish I had two of these and that would be the only vacuums I would need. The job it does on bare floors is much better than my bigger vacuum or any other vacuum I have ever used. I have always been lazy about vacuuming- haul it out, unwind the cord, find the right plug-in well you know the routine. But this little sucker is so easy to grab and go and does such a good job that it is no bother at all to get the job done. I have only had it a month but so far, so great!
