I used this at my grandmother and grandfather's house once, and compared to my house's Dyson Ball, it wasn't good. But, on it's own terms, it was good. It did clean everything and it wasn't the hardest thing to maneuver. Maneuvering compared to my Dyson Ball, though, was very tough and I had the worst time ever vacuuming. The design, however, is horrible. I am very picky about how my items look, and I just did not like this vacuums design. On the plus side, though, the durability of this vacuum is great, my grandparents told me that they've been using this vacuum for years, now. Maneuverability This wasn't the easiest thing to maneuver compared to my Dyson Ball, but it wasn't the hardest vacuum to maneuver that I have ever used. Ease of Maintenance Maintenance is pretty simple. Not difficult at all. Suction Performance Good suction, it cleaned carpets and hardwood floors with no problem. Design I don't like the design at all. It just does not look good to me. Durability This vacuum has lasted my grandparents a few years.
