I know I was asking for too much to have a cordless, lightweight vacuum that could be used as both stick and handheld that actually works! We have a family of 5 with 2 dogs. We recently replaced an entire floor with hard floors and I wanted a cordless vac I could use at least once a day to do quick clean up of crumbs under the table and dog hair. I was also looking for the attachment to de-dog-hair the couch daily. This would make my life so much easier so I don't have to drag my Dyson up and down the steps and mess with the long cord and the loud noise every single day. The cordless I could use even more than once. It won't disturb the baby if he's napping - I can even get it out, use it, and put it away all with the baby in 1 arm. I read the reviews from other sites and understood it didn't have enough power to work on carpet... but this is even less power than I expected. It picks up dog hair ok, but nothing bigger than toast crumbs, literally, and I wouldn't bother trying to use it even on the lowest pile rugs. The brush attachment is so small and stiff that it barely does anything but get all the dust stuck on itself - it doesn't actually get sucked up in the vac. I might as well wipe the floors with my hands since I have to pick everything off of the brush and then everything off of the filter when I empty it. Reality is - I knew I wasn't going to get something amazingly powerful out of a handheld vac attached to a plastic stand.. but this is still a disappointment. I'm going to keep it and keep using it daily until it dies (which doesn't appear to take too long from other sites reviews) because it does a 'good enough' job on quick cleanups on hard floors. In hindsight, I wouldn't pay more than $15 for it.
