First of all I wish to say how speedily it arrived. I got it within 24 hours of ordering from Amazon. It works fine, and has excellent suction. Although it is lower power than a full size vac, the small size of it makes the suction more concentrated therefore it is stronger. You have to be careful not to put it too near anything that moves, like a newspaper, or the pages get lifted. The only nuisance is that the dust filter needs to be emptied and cleaned every use. On the other hand, it only gets full so quickly because it picks up so much dirt. It's easy enough to empty, but a messy nuisance job, and therefore I will only use it for things I cannot do with my full-size vac. However, I am pleased to have it in the cupboard for those occasions. For the price it is a good buy, and a useful tool to have.....when it's needed. Great to have the power cord (very long)and three pin plug, and not having to worry about keeping it charged. It's neat and small and the cord wraps around it into a tidy little parcel to tuck away.
