It works like a hand vac should.

I cannot turn this vacuum off unless I push the on/off switch with both thumbs!

I cannot turn this vacuum off unless I push the on/off switch with both thumbs! My children cannot use it at all. An elderly person or someone with arthritis could NOT turn this off without assistance. I bought this vacuum to replace a dirt devil that had lasted for 8 years, but had less than fab suction. This one picks up okay - but for the price, I expected more. The filter gets clogged very easily and if you use it to clean up flower petals or small pieces of tissue paper - forget it, it just stops. Not for the crafty family! I used to like Black & Decker. Their products are failing of late and if I hadn't lost my receipt, this vacuum would be back at the store it came from! DON'T buy this one. B & D, are you listening?

This vacuum is almost impossible to turn on and off; you need both hands. Also, hard to remove the container to empty it. It picks up crumbs and stuff off my kitchen floor ok , but you could probably find one for half the price that does better than this. Don't buy it.

Bought this vacuum to replace a New Black & Decker 14.4-Volt DustBuster, Model CHV1408. It also has the same poorly designed On/Off switch. Sadly, I returned it to Amazon for a refund. I would not recommend this product.

We've had this DustBuster for about 2 years now. Personally, we've had no problems. It works like a hand vac should. Even my 3 year old has no issue turning it off and on and it charges fine.

I have had one of these for about 1 year and needed a second one. It works great, has plenty of suction, was received on time and in good order.

I had gotten this dustbuster perhaps 5 or so months ago. Yes the on/off switch is horrible. What else is that the recharging light doesn't work on mine. The charge doesn't last long anymore at all... maybe less than 1 minute of full power until you hear it start getting weaker which is crazy. I wouldn't recommend this for anyone. I thought Black and Decker was a good and trustworthy brand and I assumed that paying around 40$ for it would mean that it was a good product. Oh well...

Had for about 3 years. Doesn't hold a charge good- Low power.

Power switch stinks

Emptying it and clicking back together is horrible design. Every time you put it back together the plastic clip gets worse and worse. It's always a struggle.

The Black and Decker CHV1218 Dustbuster runs well, is stylish and handy to hang on the wall. That's the good news.
The on/off switch takes a Herculean effort to push on or off. It is poorly designed with the switch button recessed into the frame and it sticks terribly in both directions. My wife needed a wooden clothing pin to turn it on or off. We don't recommend this one at all. We ended up returning it.
