Summary: This vacuum is awesome! At first, the attachments felt loose and would move unintentionally, and occasionally pop off during use. Turns out I didn't have them pushed in all the way, and they require a little bit of effort to get them to snap and lock into place. That was my only complaint, and since I figured that out, I have nothing but praise for this beast of a vacuum! The amount of suction power it has is evident the second you flip the switch on.
Summary: The vacuum really sucks! And that is in a good way. It is extremely powerful, but the exhaust is really powerful and will blow away anything behind it. So before using it, make sure that there is no debris lying behind that you need to vacuum. Another con is that it is extremely loud. It is so loud that when my sister was right next to me, it was difficult to hear what she was saying while talking at normal room loudness.

Summary: I'll bet most of the people who give this thing good reviews regret it after a couple months, but just never get around to retracting their review. This is the third piece of junk - I MEAN HAND VAC - that' i've bought since my old Dirt Devil with a motorized brush died. First I tried a rechargeable - their power doesn't last long enough to be useful to me.
Summary: I have had this model of vacuum for several years(around 4 years I think). I love this little vac! I can use it to vac those baseboards. The baseboards, bathroom, kitchen and around the fireplace. It is so handy and easy to use. When you flip the little tube down it is even more powerful. It saves me loads of time when housecleaning. Great for getting in to hard to reach corners of the room and great for picking up my cat's hair too.
Summary: Over the years, I've bought a number of Scorpion hand held vacuums . They were powerful cleaning tools, hardly ever losing suction regardless of how full of dirt they became. It even became my practice to give my used vacuum to a friend whenever I wanted to buy a new one [typically, after the crevice tool (which is attached to the vac) would come off]. Regardless, the vac still cleaned. I just replaced it for esthetic reasons.
Summary: This Handheld Vacuum is worth its weight in gold. It is just one greedy sucker. While using it with the Quick Flip extended to clean My Hammond organ, it was reluctant to release my little finder which came in contact with the nozzle. I would advise using protective ear gear with it because it has a very loud roar. Also be careful to extend the Quick Flip and then carefully push it in to the mouth of the device without rocking it, which may cause it to break.
