I got this vacuum because our others were clogging due to the pet hair. Well this one did not turn out to be any better. Maneuverability My eight year old could vacuum with it. Ease of Maintenance There wasn't much to it. Suction Performance I was upset that the suction was not as powerful as I had wished and it plugged up with pet hair. Versatility It is a basic vacuum. Not really easy on stairs. Design It was light weight and had a sleek design. Durability Other than the lack of suction it worked pretty good.
