This isn't quite as good as some of those vacuums that cost twice or three times as much, but it is a good value for the price. It definitely exceeded my expectations when it came to pet hair! Our puggle sheds like crazy, and it's that stiff, short hair that can be so incredibly stubborn to clean up. This vacuum did a wonderful job of cleaning it up, even picking up the hairs that were somewhat embedded into the carpet. Maneuverability I had a little trouble getting this under furniture, so I had to move some things around. Other than that, it maneuvers pretty well and gets into tight corners nicely. Ease of Maintenance This vacuum is very easy to take care of. Suction Performance Anything that takes care of the ridiculous amount of dog hair our house can accumulate is a winner in my book! Versatility It's a pretty standard vacuum, so it isn't terribly versatile, but it takes care of what I need it to take care of. Design It is a little clunky, but it is nice that it isn't too terribly big.
