I was amazed. I have a long hair tabby who sheds everywhere he walks. This was amazing dealing with it.
Wish it did the edges, along the wall better. But for the price on Buy.com you cannot go wrong.
A little load for a small one, but does impressive work.
I would like to have a longer cord, it's a pain to have to find an outlet in every room. (Small house, smallish rooms) It is pretty noisy, scares the animals half to death, but picks up all the bird seed and dander really well. Doesn't work as well on the rug in the living room, esp on the cat hair. Seems to suck up everything on the hardwoods really well though.
This is the most impressive stick vacuum that i have ever had the opportunity to own! The power behind the suction is unbelievable! The only problem I have with this machine is how high the decibel level is. But that is easy enough to solve, I wear earplugs and I have my son leave the room!!
The vacuum is very noisy. However, it's powerful enough for a small areas. To get the best out of it, you have to empty the dirt out more often, but even if you don't it still has a lot of sucking power.
I don't think this vacuum will suit to do a large house but just smaller areas - like a small bedroom.
The size is a little short, but I wanted something compact and small and that's what I got.
