Summary: Have found the power of this cordless vacuum to be what we could never find in previous hand held vacuums. The only negative for us is the exhaust-air-exits disperse some of the items that are not in the path of suction and scatters the items all over the place.

Summary: I like this purchase. So I was looking for a handheld vac that would not break for eternity. Over the last 5 years I have gone through 3 handheld vacuums that have been fine, but they didn't last very long (both were Shark whatever volt, who cares). This vac comes with a 6 yr.
