Very lightweight and powerful vacuum. Maneuverability Very easy to move across carpet or hardwood. Ease of Maintenance It is a little messy to empty as most bagless vacuums are as well. Suction Performance Amazing suction from a small vacuum. I am impressed. Versatility Very versatile due to it's canister style and weight which makes for easy maneuvering. Design It's a bit strange looking bur don't let that fool you. it's a powerhouse. Durability The jury is still out on this as I haven't owned it but 6 months.
