I love this cordless vacuum. I bought this item after about a year of when I had bought my Shark navigator vacuum. I did my research on quite a few different cordless vacuums, and I mainly got this one because of other reviews I read on it, and also I love my upright Shark vacuum, so I figured I couldn't go wrong with this product. I mostly bought this item to be able to quickly vacuum up messes (crackers, chips, etc.) and also to vacuum out my car. I can let it charge on the base and then go out and vacuum my car out, and avoid having to go to a carwash or somewhere else to vacuum it and pay for it. It is also great to use on stairs, so you don't have to carry your vacuum up and down the stairs. It picks up dirt and messes very well too. It is very light and easy to dump the dirt out when you are finished using it. If this one ever quits working, I will definitely get another one. I would highly recommend this brand and product to anyone.
