I am always on the lookout for a good vacuum, especially a small, lightweight one that can get into small spaces. I thought the Hoover Flair Bagless Stick Vacuum would be the ultimate vacuum for for me but I was sadly disappointed and returned it after only a week. I loved the design of this vacuum right away. It was just so sleek and attractive. It was sleek and slim, and took up very little room. I found it very easy to put together as well. Everything was fine until I started using it. For an expensive vacuum I was expecting better performance. This was good on hardwood and linoleum but I was not impressed with its performance on carpeting, even low pile carpeting. It just didn't do even as good of a job as a cheap sweeper! I also didn't have a great experience with emptying the dust cup. It was a giant pain with the filter which tended to get clogged often with pet hair. Overall, this was not the product I thought it would be for the price. If you do not have pets and have only hardwood or linoleum floors this may be good for you, but if you have pets or carpets give it a pass.
