Not the best vacuum, but sometimes you get what you pay for. It is very difficult to clean out, the suction is terrible, and the vacuum flips over in the middle of cleaning if it hits the tiniest bump. The tool provided to clean out the brushes is a seam ripper in a little plastic protector. So even when you can get it to cut through the hair, it is very tedious getting it all out. Other cons: It absorbs odors, I'm assuming into the bristles, and they stick around for a long time. The tray that holds the dirt is very small, so it is necessary to dump it at least twice during vacuuming, and we live in a small apartment so it will probably be a lot more if you live in a house. I'd say spend your money on something a little more high quality, unless you live in a household of bald people (the hair that gets wrapped around the brushes is impossible to get out and it makes the suction even less) or you don't have much to clean up.
