I purchased on Ergorapido and within a week went back to buy another one for a second home. These quick stick vacuums are just perfect for what I needed - a fast way to do light duty cleanups around the house. I had not planned on making much use of the detachable hand-held part of the unit, but that has been an unexpected bonus feature that I would hate to be without. In both long stick and short hand-held, this vacuum does a stellar job picking up dust, debris and particles. I primarily use it in our kitchen and dining area on a daily basis, but often find myself running it through the entire main level for a quick cleanup. The suction power is sufficient for light duty work, and the battery power is surprisingly good, lasting about 15 minutes before losing full strength. It's upright position when placed on the charging base makes it ideal for tucking away in a corner. I wasn't sure how I'd feel about the bold colors offered, but we went with the red and it's really quite cute, and compliments our décor. Never before would I have though of having a vacuum of any size in view when not being used, but this one is so inobtrusive that we hardly notice it. I just love having it readily available for quick cleanups.
