I bought this vacuum in November 2014!!! ...Almost 5 years ago as of this writing. I use it several times a week and it is still as powerful and helpful as the day I first used it. It was an excellent investment.
The pivot feature, flip out brush, and extendable nozzle make is so easy to use at different angles and reaches, and the brush is great for removing pet hair from upholtery.
The battery is fantastic. I can leave it off the charger for days at a time and it still goes strong.
Couldn't be more pleased. This vacuum has performed exceptionally well and is everything a hand vac should be.
