The low noise level of this little vacuum is my favorite feature. I often hold off vacuuming because of the noise level and not wanting to interrupt other things going on, but I don't really need to worry about it with this one. This also works very well with my brand new car that I'm very particular about. The lightweight and cordless factor allows me to reach into places I haven't vacuumed in too long, too. The motorized rolling brush is what makes this cordless vacuum better than any of the others I've tried, hands down, as it is the best at picking up pet hair, especially from off fabric surfaces.
