I bought this vacuum last year for my college apartment and did not like it all. I had only had for about 3 months and barely used it. One day when I was using it the brush stopped working and was not sucking anything up. When I tried to take the brush off one of the side clips broke and would not go back in properly. Maneuverability The light weight is easy to pick up but to steer it around the room is a little difficult. Ease of Maintenance Trying to take the middle plastic container out to dump the dirt out was easy but trying to put it back was the hard part it did not match up. Suction Performance Was good at first but you have to be careful what your roll it over. When my brush broke the suction didn't seem to want to work anymore. Design The design is very easy to work with. With the light weight and slim design you can carry it anywhere or store it in the smallest of places. Durability It is definitely not a heavy duty vacuum and you can tell in the price. It is just meant to clean up the crumbs and dirt on the carpet.
