Metropolitan Vacuum Cleaner Co., Inc.: Committed to the American Dream
In December of 1939, Hyman Gulker pawned his pocket watch and gave $50 to his daughter and son-in-law, Pearl and Israel Stern. That was the beginning of Metropolitan Vacuum Cleaner Company, the family's American Dream.

Before he founded Metro, Israel sold vacuum cleaners door to door. He was such a great salesman, in fact, that the president of the last company he worked for offered him $100 to come back into the fold. To the president's great disappointment, however, Israel's wife had the last word. She said, "Nothing doing. We're on our own now!"

Since the day those fateful words were spoken, the Metropolitan Vacuum Cleaner Co., Inc. has grown from a small retail store in Bronx, NY, that sold and repaired vacuum cleaners into a multidivisional corporation with an ever-expanding range of products.

What's in the Box
MDV-1BA vacuum; 19-inch flexible hose; crevice tool; air pin-pointer; soft bristle brush; shoulder strap; five disposable paper bags; and four-piece micro-cleaning tool kit.

I was trying to decide between the Metro Vac ED-500 duster or this all-in-one duster / vacuum. I really wanted something that did both so I decided to give the DataVac Pro a try. I saw some great reviews, and some not-so-great reviews so I was a little worried. I have to say, I love this product! The vacuum part is what you would expect, and does as good of a job as a regular upright vacuum with a hose. The vacuum comes with a hose, regular sized brush, crevice tool, pinpoint cleaner, and a micro cleaning kit consisting of a micro bursh, crevice tool, and flexible (somewhat) straw attachment. Everything seems to be of good quality and is made in the U.S.A. the canister is metal and the vacuum comes with 5 extra bags + the one already installed. There is no set-up out of the box, just plug it in and go.

This product seems to be geared towards people in the computer or electronics repair field. As a computer technician here are my thoughts: First , the kind of dust you find in a computer cannot be easily vacuumed up by any vacuum cleaner (except for dust bunnies). the dust is so fine and almost seems electro-statically charged to the surfaces. That said, I like to vacuum up as much as I can before I blow the rest out. the blower works by attaching the hose to the opposite end of the vacuum. I would say the blower is probably more powerful than a can of air but maybe not as powerful as the ED-500 although I don't know for sure because I've never tried the ED-500. What I can say is that the blower is *MORE* than powerful enough to get the job done. I saw some impressive videos with the ED-500 blowing literally "clouds" of dust from computers. This blower does the same.

I've seen the other reviews here recently, and I'm not sure what folks are complaining about. Yes, there's an AC motor in here, so things will tend to get a little warm when moving that much air. We have a Hoover upright at home, and while the sucking power of this little thing doesn't approach that Vacuum, it does admirably enough that I no longer need to use the Hoover. The attachment you see in the photo representing the vacuum is great for getting those dust bunnies out from the bottom of the case, and even better for cleaning off exhaust grates and fan assemblies. If you've got a fine layer of dust on something, this, and my Hoover, aren't very good at this. To make this vacuum the one-two punch you need for dust, you need either compressed air, or a hose from a compressor to help loosen things up. That's how I did it with the upright, and that's how I do it with this thing.

As for the heat, I've had it on for extended periods of time, 5-7 minutes a stretch and while it does get warm, as long as you aren't blocking the exhaust port, you won't get any trouble. Every vacuum/blower I've ever used got as warm as this one does, so I don't see what people are complaining about. It's all online sensationalism as far as I can tell. Sorry guys.

The extra included filters are a nice touch, but I usually just empty mine out until I need to switch to another one - no loss of sucking power or excess heat. It is a little unweildy though, I wish the hose was a little longer or the tube was shaped differently, but it sits in my lap just fine all the same.

I got this vacuum cleaner for small and quick cleanups on my electric test bench, where I did not want to haul in a larger vacuum cleaner.

I was surprised to see that the vacuum is 'Made in the USA'; seems like not many things are anymore. On the other hand, it might have been a nicer unit in some ways if it came from China.

The body of the vacuum is actually metal with a black painted finish. The handle, hoses and accessories are plastic. But the whole thing seems rather crudely manufactured, with some hardware going in at odd angles and the paint job spotty and with runs.

The vacuum works well and produces a goodly amount of suction, quite respectable for its size (about 16" long not counting the hose, and about 4" diameter). I would guess that its vacuum is about the same as smaller shop vacs. It is not overly noisy, certainly a lot quieter than most full sized vacuums. It would not be too disruptive in an office environment, for example.

The vacuum comes with a short hose and the usual crevas tool and dusting brush, plus an adapter for much smaller fittings for work in small spaces and on equipment such as copiers, printers, computers, and such. I also got a micro vacuum attachment kit from Amazon (which is listed as a recommended accessory, but the kit is by a different manufacturer), in order to get a hose extension and even smaller fittings and brushes. Note that this vacuum's normal hose and basic fittings are sized to be compatible with most household type vacuum cleaners (and the smaller shop vacs), so their fittings would probably be interchangable.

Some others have complained about the vacuum getting hot. I ran it for a few minutes without a load and it got just a bit warm to the touch.
