Neither one thing or the other
on 17 November 2012
I purchased this after reading a number of reviews, some complimentary, others less so. The real problem is that whereas it it is quite powerful, it really does not do the job I need it for, that is clearing up crumbs around the kitchen. In some respects it is unnecessarily powerful and heavy but despite this, the aperture is really too small and poorly designed for it to be effective. One has to repeatedly go over an area. I would have been better with a lighter weight model. Actually, the restricted size of the aperture also makes it unsuitable for larger jobs where the extra power might be useful. So not the best buy, for me at least.
