This is a good vacuum, but not the best. Be careful when dumping the contents because the bottom hatch that opens will break off making it a huge pain to dump. Once it breaks off you will have to realign and hold bottom piece on until you can reattach the whole canister part. I also feel that after using this vacuum for a few years, the suction has gone from very powerful to average. It is also annoying that you must pull the entire piping down in order to correctly use the handheld suction piece. The dumping piece is also confusing; every person that has never used a Dyson before has accidentally let the dust fall out by pulling the wrong trigger first. Maneuverability Pretty easy to maneuver, but hard to get under small spaces compared to other vacuums. Ease of Maintenance Pieces are known to break off and it is hard to find a place to fix them. Suction Performance Suction seems to have been lost after use. Durability Pieces will fall off if you are not super careful and gentle.
