If you are looking for a cheap vacuum to do the job, this hoover fold away is a good option. It was great for me when I was living in a small one bedroom apartment, however, now that I own a home, it's performance left something to be desired. Maneuverability I never had any issue moving the vacuum around. My biggest complaint (and only now because I have a Dyson and am spoiled by their twenty five foot long power cord) is that the cord on the hoover is not very long. I would have to plug it in to every room. Ease of Maintenance It is nice to not have a bag to have to replace and monitor. However, emptying the canister on the hoover fold away always leaves both myself, the trash can and the area around the trash can dusty. It's not a very "clean" vacuum to empty. Suction Performance It gets the job done. It's not great at picking up the tiny dirt. On the flip side, you get what you pay for and for the money, it does a good job. Versatility I sometimes used the attachments, although they don't fit into the holders on the vacuum very well and fall off. I have lost a few attachments because they simply fell off while in a move. Design Storage for attachments needs to be improved. Durability Never any major issues. Belts need replaced on a regular basis.
