I bought the Dirt Devil Kurv Hand Vac because it looked neat. I'm a sucker like that. [Ha ha, sucker, get it, I'm reviewing a vacuum.] It's very sleek looking and small so it fits anywhere. I used to put it in the corner of my living room. You can't even tell it's a vacuum, it just looks like a modern decorative piece. The looks are about the only good thing about the Dirt Devil Kurv Hand Vac. You charge the vacuum part; therefore, it's cordless when you use it, which is convenient. The charge lasts for quite a while. The Kurv is not that great of a product. I have a cat who sheds like crazy and I was hoping this vacuum would be a quick way to just suck up the cat hair. It just doesn't do it. I can go over and over a spot and the hair would still remain. It's okay at picking up bigger things but hair is definitely not it's strong point. Also, the longer I had my Kurv the less sucking power it had. It started declining after a few months and continued to do so. I eventually stopped using it and let it sit around for decoration. It's since been thrown away. I don't recommend the Dirt Devil Kurv Hand Vac. It looks really good but it just doesn't perform well.
