I bought this because of our hardwood and tile floors, so a vacuum stick would be perfect for these areas. It is very convenient and lightweight so we carry it to the different locations without being strained due to the heaviness. It is easy to remove the vacuumed waste and does not leave a dirty mess in trying to remove the waste. The vacuum power is strong enough to get all the dirt and little bitty pieces off the floor. I usually vacuum the floor using this and then swifer right after. It leaves the floor spotless which I love, it can even vacuum the hair that is on the floor. The downside as to why it only gets a four is because it does not work as well as on carpet. It's not strong enough to capture everything that is laying on the carpet and vacuuming hair is probably the hardest on carpet. If it could do hardwood, tiles and carpet, this product would be perfect!

Maneuverability
Easy to use, easy to push, I don't have much to complain about it.

Ease of Maintenance
Easy, simple buttons. One push and you're ready to vacuum away and clean the dirty dirt left on floors!

Suction Performance
Very good on hardwood and tiles, does a perfect job. However, carpet performance is a little poor.

Versatility
If it could work well on carpet as it does to hardwood and tiles, definitely versatile! But, hardwood and tiles will do for now because that is my main goal.

Design
Very easy, slim and lightweight, perfect for a small person like me to use.

Durability
So far so good, I have had it for a month and love it so far, let's hope it lasts longer than a year!

I have a small room in an apartment I just moved into. It does the job, although it's not powerful as I would like. It's tiny, you can put it in the corner, and it also extends for when you are vacuuming. I like how it is bagless and I can just dump it out instead of spending money on endless bags. It is good value for money. I use it on my thin carpet and kitchen floors, but I doubt it would clean thick carpet. It is mostly used for small messes. It is also not bad looking, VERY lightweight, and just so easy to clean around the house with. It has a hose but i haven't figured that out yet. Cons? I have to empty it out often or it won't pick up the crumbs or whatever is on the floor. It picks up dust and most things very well, but not everything. And very once in a while, there will be something stuck underneath, and I will have to pull it out--no big deal. Overall, it is good value and does the job if you want something cheap for small messes. It's cheap material but does the job. Just don't expect this to be a powerful Hoover to clean your whole house.

Eureka Easy Clean 2-in-1 Stick and Hand Vac

Comments about Eureka Easy Clean 2-in-1 Stick and Hand Vac:

This bag less vacuum is very cheap and you get about the quality you pay for. Dirt does not pick up well at all with this. I find the handle to be hard to adjust and it either sticks in shortest position or moves directly to highest. This vacuum does have a great price, but it is not ideal for a household with much to vacuum. I would recommend this more for a house with only very small area rugs or for a younger child who wants to help with household chore.

Suction Performance
The suction on this is far below par. I have to vacuum over the same spot numerous times even after cleaning out the vacuum and all components.

Versatility
This vacuum does not come with accessories, therefore can really only be used one way and for one purpose. Corners and hard to reach places are impossible with this vacuum.

Design
This has as a sleek design, with stand out color, but it is missing an easy way to store power cord and release it.

Gets the job done

By 

from USA

Comments about Eureka Easy Clean 2-in-1 Stick and Hand Vac:

This stick vac is extremely lightweight. It requires cleaning after every use. The assembly is very easy. It is very easy to convert to different types of vacs. This stick vac is very worth it. It takes up minimal space.

Maneuverability
It doesn't get corners very well because of the head shape.

Ease of Maintenance
I have to clean after every use for stronger suction power.

Suction Performance
When I keep the chamber clean, it then has good suction.

Versatility
Very cersite, easy to convert.

Design
The design is very good. It's light. It comes on a variety of colors.

Durability
I would say that the stick vac is durable.

just okay

Comments about Eureka Easy Clean 2-in-1 Stick and Hand Vac:

This vac works ok at picking up light things like pet hair and cat litter. If you are wanting it for anything else I wouldn't recommend it. The suction isn't very strong, which I wasn't expecting like a regular vacuum but it could definitely be better. Not bad for price.

Maneuverability
It is very easy to push around and light to carry.

Ease of Maintenance
This little vac is very easy to clean out, you don't even really have to physically touch the dirt, just dump it in the trash. The filters are washable also which makes it even better.

Suction Performance
This does not have very strong suction, it could definitely be improved for future products.

Versatility
I would only use this on hard floors, I wouldn't think it would be good for anything besides that. The handle does come off so it can be used as a hand vac for furniture and small messes, etc.

Design
The design is nice, it's light and easy to store. The cord is a good length and was very easy to put together.

Durability
I have had no problems with it being poor quality.

A convenient vacuum, easy to use and store

By 

from Nashua, NH

Comments about Eureka Easy Clean 2-in-1 Stick and Hand Vac:

I love the size of the this vacuum and the way it folds up so small when not being used. Size-wise and weight-wise, it is so much less imposing than other vacuums I have used. It's a great vacuum for quick clean-ups when I don't feel like dragging out a large, heavy vacuum to just take care of a small area. Because it's so small and light, I can easily maneuver it around tables and furniture legs and small areas. In spite of the fact that it's easy to use and is a convenient size, it does have some serious disadvantages. It is not an all-purpose vacuum and it probably would not be suitable as your only vacuum. Because it's small, it would be time consuming to cover a large area or a whole room with it. Also, the suction is not nearly as strong as larger vacuums that I have used so while it's great for a quick clean-up, for a more thorough clean-up, I would definitely opt for a larger, more powerful vacuum. As a second vacuum for quick clean-ups, I would definitely recommend this product.

Handy Small Vacuum

By 

from Akron, OH

Comments about Eureka Easy Clean 2-in-1 Stick and Hand Vac:

The Eureka Easy Clean 2-in-1 Stick and Hand Vac 166DX is a handy vacuum cleaner for smaller jobs, or someone who doesn't have a lot of carpet. We purchased this vacuum after ours broke - as a temporary replacement. It was inexpensive and does the job well, though we do have a lot of carpet! This vacuum is basically a small dirt devil with a handle! There are no bags, and emptying the contents is easy. The cord is shorter than the cord of a regular vacuum - and there is not a way to "charge" to use this in a car. Overall, it was a good value for the money spent, and was exactly what it was advertised to be.

Maneuverability
Small head - fits into tiny spots well.

Suction Performance
Does a great job picking up dirt!

Versatility
As I mentioned before - the cord is shorter than a regular vacuum cleaner, but still reaches nearly all of my living room which measures 20 x 15.

Durability
We have not owned this vacuum long, but it does seem to be durable.

Looks like a kids toy, but serves it's purpose

By 

from USA

Comments about Eureka Easy Clean 2-in-1 Stick and Hand Vac:

I got a great deal on this vacuum, so I really can't complain. It's pretty tiny, but I live in a one bedroom apartment and don't have the space for anything that's too big. We have all hardwood floors and area rugs and it's really perfect for that. I actually didn't own an actual electric vacuum for the first year that I lived hear. I just had one of those roll vacuums and this is much better then that was. The Eureka easy clean doesn't have bags that need to be changed and I like that factor.
The wand extends up and down, which is perfect because my two year old loves to use it and help clean up after his craft projects.
I would definitely recommend it for small jobs and small apartments. Maybe not for a place that's all carpet though.

Eureka Easy Clean 2 in 1 Stick and Hand Vac

By 

from Langhorne, PA

Comments about Eureka Easy Clean 2-in-1 Stick and Hand Vac:

Overall, I would recommend buying this Eureka Easy Clean 2 in 1 Stick and Hand Vac. I love that this product can be used as a regular vacuum and a hand vacuum. The hand vacuum makes this product very portable and is great to pick up small messes, use in your car or to clean steps in your house. Also, the vacuum is very lightweight. It is very easy to pick up. Best of all, this product really picks up well. It is the best stick vacuum I have tried. It picks up dirt and debris very easily and is easy to maneuver. The only thing I would like to see improved is the color. I would prefer that the vacuum was blue, pink or purple over a bright yellow.

Excellent vacuum for hardwood floors and pet hair!

By 

from Kimberling City, MO

Comments about Eureka Easy Clean 2-in-1 Stick and Hand Vac:

This is the best vacuum for families that have pets and hardwood floors. It picks up all the hair and is so easy to use and clean! To be totally honest, I actually look forward to vacuuming with this and that is not normal for me!

Maneuverability
It is so small that it gets in the areas that are hard to reach!

Ease of Maintenance
Super easy to clean, actually one of the easiest vacuums I have ever had to clean. It does have a short cord but I just keep my extension cord attached and never notice.

Suction Performance
I don't have any large items to pick up, just dust, dirt and hair and it picks it up very well.

Versatility
It is definitely only to be used on hardwood, linoleum or tile floors which is all we have. It does not work on carpet at all or rugs.

Design
Nice size to get in and out of a closet without taking up much space.
