The Black & Decker DustBuster Chv9610 is the main vacuum I use at my girlfriend's house. My first impression of this vacuum is that it is very light weight and it doesn't keep up much noise. I was able to have a decent level conversation while using this vacuum. I have used this vacuum to clean just about every surface. This vacuum performs well at getting up cat hair. I was able to do several rooms on a single charge. I also don't have to empty the debris container too often. The debris container can hold a lot of trash and it doesn't affect suction power. The only downside to this product is that you must constantly charge it. I once charged this device overnight and didn't use it until a week later. When it came time to use the vacuum it only lasted 5 minutes. Apparently this device must be charged similar to a smart phone. It loses power rather it's on or off. I definitely would recommend the Black & Decker DustBuster CHV9610 to anyone looking for a cheap vacuum with a large debris container.
