I am an Amazon Prime member for more than a few years, and learned to always check reviews. The specs looked good but there were more than a few two-stars on this unit. So I hesitated, then pulled the trigger on an Amazon Warehouse returned unit for a GREAT price. I am very pleased. Although just using this a few days now.

I live in a 1400 sq.ft. farmhouse I am restoring. I clean up an awful lot of sawdust/wood chips/dried mortar but I don't often haul out my shop-vac for regular housework. More than a few cobwebs grew on ceilings and under cabinets and such because I need something less than the nuclear option to get at the creepy things.

This thing is perfect as a light-weight corners and crannys and ceilings clean-up. Sucks like a politician's wife (picks up coins) and I don't understand the overheat complaint since even after twenty minutes straight the intake end is ice-cold and the exhaust is hardly warm to the touch, you can hold your hand over it. Bonus: Kitty recovery time is <=two minutes since it doesn't sound like a GE turbofan on takeoff.

I am glad I did not listen to the naysayers, maybe a long-term test will show me some real faults, but I got more done the first few days I used this vac than I did in years before I owned it. Very happy!

This hand vacuum has great suction, especially for its size. The attachments are easy to remove/reattach, though I agree with the other reviews which recommend purchasing a hose extension as the one displayed in the product photo is deceivingly shorter than it appears. This vacuum is simple, tidy, and tucks away easily for storage.

First the pros. Overall I am really happy with this product. I'll list the cons below but I knew about those before I bought it, from reading other comments, so I'm giving it 5 stars based upon my expectations.

The suction is much more powerful than I thought it was going to be. This easily has as much "pick up power" as a full sized vacuum cleaner. Probably to the point that I will buy more accessories and use it beyond my original intent of just cleaning out cob webs, crumbs that fall into the couch and vacuuming my automobile. I know the cons below will seem like a greater number but they are nit-picky. First and foremost a vacuum cleaner needs to have suction power - that is 99% of what you really want it to do. It needs to be able to: Pick. Crap. Up. And, this does quite well.

As everybody cautioned, the hose it ships with is inconveniently short. You think you won't mind but it's too long to wield one-handed but too short to be able to put the canister down. Buy a bigger hose and you will be happier. The power cord is also on the short side. I measured it at just over 11 feet so you will always want an extension cord nearby. The on/off switch is located in a spot where neither your thumb nor fingers can turn it on or off while holding the handle but maybe that's on purpose - I personally don't like that decision.

It's made in the USA - yay! Not much of that anymore, right? So, I was a little bummed to see stickers slapped on it slightly crooked and not completely pressed down in some cases. Boooo! Come on, guys... you can't be making a million of these things so take your time. Have some pride and make people WANT to buy "Made in the USA" again. The little details leave a lasting impression.

I got one of these "free" with points on my credit card. In order to empty the bag, you have to twist the front part to remove it from the main body. Almost immediately the little posts that hold the two pieces together broke so I've held it together with duct tape ever since. (They wanted me to pay for shipping to get it repaired.) The bag is tiny, made of paper, and expensive. You can take it out and empty it, but it tears easily. Foolishly I ordered a second vacuum. It hasn't broken yet, but like the first one it has the crappy and expensive bags. Besides, and I should have mentioned this up front, these things get HOT. What I mean is that the attractive stainless steel body (the part that makes it look high quality) gets so hot you can't hold onto it. The only reason I wrote this review is that I was shopping on Amazon for a better car vac and saw the Metro again and thought I should warn the unsuspecting.

Pros: great suction, light weight, easy to use, sturdy, other vacuum parts fit it

Cons: size of dust bag, availability of dust bag, price of dust bag, attachments, shoulder strap

Dust bag is tiny! about 4 inches cubed. Bags are expensive & difficult to find. I have ordered a reusable cloth one from Metrovac & will report later on it.

Good suction also means a lot of air must escape - in this vacuum it is condensed into a single stream making it a good blower, but also meaning you must be careful not to point it at dusty spots & so fill the air with what you need to vacuum up.

Poor attachments : Upholstery attachment has sharp edges that catch on fabric, the holes to let air in are poorly placed & easily get blocked when vacuuming looser (fabric) surfaces. Dust brush has (nylon?) bristles that don't really catch the dust. I am using tools from an old vacuum which work much better. Crevice tool is fine.

Shoulder strap is an afterthought. I am planning to find the best angle for the vacuum to hang & then using duct tape to secure it around the body.

This vacuum is okay. Because of the dust bag issues, I debated as to whether I'd return it, but decided to keep it & try for a reusable dust bag solution.

ADDENDUM a couple of days later.... On second use of vacuum, after about 20 minutes of intermittent use, the bag broke (it was not full), dust got into motor & suction dropped to almost none. I suspect bag is not well enough made for strong suction of vacuum or was stressed because I turned the vacuum on & off (when moving things out of the way or plugging into new outlet). Also, as I was using it, the front came off a couple of times even though I carefully fit it over the pins & twisted it to lock. Maybe the bag got worn as I re-twisted the front on? In any case, I revise my review down from 3 to 1 stars.
