I wanted a bag-less vacuum for a small office and this looked like the right thing, but I should have done more research. We get a lot of dirt tracked in from outside, so we probably need a higher level product.The suction is okay. The dirt cup is awkward to remove and empty, the filter is difficult to clean thoroughly and the cord is a bit too short for our needs. It is what I should have expected for the price, but next time, I will spend a bit more to get a better quality item. Probably would be fine for a lower traffic area.
