No better or worse than other vacums. Definately not worth the very large price tag. The power button is on the top front right under button to release wand, this cause you to turn off vacum accidently while taking wand on or off. Not that great at getting up pet hair. Maneuverability Moves good on both carpet and bare floors. Ease of Maintenance Have to clean out bagless canister every so often but pretty easy. Regular vacum maintenance. Suction Performance Its pretty good on most things but pet hair is an issue. Gets clogged up easily. Versatility Normal vacum use. Design The power and wand release button should be moved. They are right over each other and causes problems. Durability Pretty durable, no problems with that yet.
