If you have pets then this is perfect for getting up hair. It has very good suction and with a turn of a knob you can easily switch to using the hose and tools. Very simple and easy to remove the canister to dump debris. I love how the cord is retractable and you just push a button and the cord gets sucked in to its compartment. The only negative thing is I feel it doesn't pick up to well on hardwood floor or tile.
