This Dustbuster has been an extremely valuable appliance in my college apartment. There are always things being spilled and knocked over where this little vacuum comes in very handy.

The package includes the vacuum, a filter, two attachments, and a wall-mountable charger. The wall mountable charger works very well and it is very easy to dock the vacuum onto the charger. The vacuum does not hold charge for extended use, but that is not a major issue when you can just keep the vacuum on the charger most of the time.

This vacuum is very powerful, picking up pennies and entire goldfish crackers without any problem whatsoever. The suction is very strong and can pick up small books and cd's. I know this because when vacuuming up a pile of pretzel crumbs on my coffee table, I kept accidentally picking up surrounding cd's and books. It was quite annoying really, but it is a testimony to the strength of the vacuum.

The design is very ergonomic and easy to hold. It is not very heavy and never tires my arm or wrist out. The two included attachments consist of a brush attachment and a precision tip attachment. The brush attachment is useful for cleaning drapes and cloth, but the precision tip is pretty useless since the vacuum head size is pretty small to begin with.
