Having tried this vacuum cleaner for a couple of weeks, I can say that I'm pretty impressed with how powerful it is considering how compact it is. I have found that I use it everyday, not just for small clean ups but for whole rooms. It's so much easier to grab and go with this vacuum without needing to unwind cables or connect tubes. It's amazing how it has rejuvenated some of the heavy traffic areas of my carpets. The variable speeds means it works just as well on carpets and vinyl floors. Being able to detach the central part to use it as a hand held cleaner is a time saver. The floor stand, used for charging is a great addition. However, my only minor negatives are the lack of storage for the detachable nozzles and whilst in the cleaner is in the charging dock there are three LED lights which flash on and off constantly. Otherwise I would highly recommend this vacuum.
