This cordless little devil is one of the best cleaning appliances I have purchased in a long, long time!! The price is affordable, and if you go to the Proctor and Gamble website (* see below) you can print a $5.00 off coupon. You can also review the one year limited warraty. Honestly, the coupon was the incentive for me to buy/try it. If your house has a lot of vinyl or hardwood floors this product is a must-have! It's especially nice if you own a pet. I was amazed at how much power the vacuum feature has! With the added fluffy sweeper pad, it will clean all of your hard surface floors beautifully. The lightweight, slim design allows you to squeeze it into spots that a normal vacuum would not fit, and a broom probably wouldn't be as effective.
Some things to know before buying... The instructions say that as soon as you are finished with your cleaning you can instantly plug it back into the charger again. No need to let it run down before charging. So far this cycle seems to work. I do notice that if I get sidetracked and lean it up against a wall to do another chore, it will lose some power when I return to use it again. Also, although this is minor, you have to flip the vacuum piece up out of the way to get the cloth onto the 'sweeper' part of the appliance. A cup that catches the dirt pops on and off with the push of a button. It's small so it needs to be emptied almost every time if you have a lot of hard surface floors or steps. Another thing to consider is the cost of buying replacement Sweeper Cloths.
Mostly I LOVE this cleaning appliance! It would be a waste money if your house or apartment has lots of carpet and only a teeny amount of hard floor surface. But for those of us with fur/crumb dropping pets, kids, husbands, and have a kitchen, playroom, or bathroom that could use a good "swiff + vac", I highly recommend running to your nearest retailer (with your coupon) and buying this appliance!
