This hand vac is cordless, cheap, and worth every penny you pay. I have had this hand vac for about three months now and it still holds a charge and works like new. Unlike many other hand vacs it has a one year warenty which ensures that any problems with the unit I'll be fixed by the dirt devil company at no cost to you. Many hand vacuum stop holding a charge after the first few uses but this one has been used many times and it still runs like it is brand new. I love the fact that the crevice tool is just a flip out crevice tool that stays attached to the hand vac so it won't get lost. Maneuverability This hand vac is defiantly easy to use and is in fact one of the smallest hand vacs I have ever had, making it easier to get into tight spaces and behind furniture. Ease of Maintenance This hand vac is like many other hand vacs the only maintanence required to keep this hand vac running like new is keep it charged and make sure to empty the dust cup after every use. Suction Performance Even though this hand vac is good for almost anything it does not have the proper suction to pick up some bigger particles. Versatility I really like the fact that this hand vac can go almost anywhere being that it is cordless.
