“Great vacuum,” one shopper wrote.

“Ideal for our apartment and well worth the money. Works great to vacuum dog hair on shaggy carpet, little less so on low-pile carpet. The lights are really heplful and the battery life is decent too. Absolutely worth the money and would recommend.”

This thing is awesome. The battery lasts for ages, the suction is great and the light on the floor attachment makes finding all dirty easy and it works a treat with low lighting.”

While a third said: “Great little vacuum, lightweight and strong suction. Cannot fault, well price and would buy again and/or recommend highly”.
