This little vacuum is more fun that one should have doing housework. It is noisy as mentioned on previous reviews but it does a good job and is fun with animals. It's easy to vacuum my tile and linoleum flooring now for the pet hair that drove me crazy before. Once or twice a day I turn on the vacuum and head upstairs and when I come back from overnight or whenever the floor is clean.The only thing I don't like is the dust/hair storage area is small and rather unhandy to clean. I usually have to clean mine multiple times if I don't run it twice a day. In all fairness though I have three dogs and a cat to clean after. Not a big issue and still well work the money. I do like it better on the tile and linoleum but it does well on carpet too.
