Rated 5 out of 5Â by lisalbean Great for kids!
Our 9 and 11 year old daughters have to vacuum the house each week. We have all hardwood floors and tile with a few throw rugs. This vacuum works great on the floors and is easy for the girls to handle. I really like the maneuverabilty of the canister as well as the way the handle turns so that they can get under the couches and other furniture. It also has an adjustable power knob so we can turn it up or down to suit the surface we are cleaning. The only issue so far is that it is a little difficult to do the throw rugs because it is so powerful! One person has to stand on the end while the other vacuums, otherwise it tries to suck up the whole thing. But, obviously, having good suction is a plus for the rest of the floors because it does a great job picking up the dust and grit.

I bought the vacuum for my son for Christmas. He has an apartment with hardwood floors and a few throw rugs. He also has a cat. He just needed something small to clean-up. I was worried I should have gotten something bigger but boy was I wrong. What a perfect vacuum for all of his needs. The suction power is amazing for such a small vacuum. He loves it.

This thing is awful on rugs and it just scrapes across hardwoods. It literally pushed debris around because the "Multi-surface floor nozzle" is so low to the ground that nothing can go under it to get sucked in. I hate it. :(
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Mmmkayyy Perfect for my hardwood floors
After growing up in a house with wall to wall carpet, adjusting to a house with all hardwood floor was a challenge. I tried some of the swiffer products but they couldn't handle the hair from my dog and cat. Then I tried using a broom and a dustpan but it took forever and I still felt like the floors were dirty. I finally came across this vacuum and after reading reviews gave it a shot.
The first time that I used it I thought it seemed a little awkward, but that may be because I had never used anything other than an upright vacuum. After I got the hang of it I was thrilled. It cuts my time in about half and it does a wonderful job. I love using the attachment piece to get hard to reach areas and along baseboards. My only complaint with that is that the plastic cracked pretty early on but it still works and I imagine that piece is cheap to replace.
All in all, this vacuum is great.
