Lots of powerThis has a lot of power in a small package, and it will do the job my wife wanted it for--mainly tough jobs with the crevice tool between carpet and walls. Some of the reviews mention a short cord, and it isn't terribly long but long enough. (If you need it longer, use an extension cord!) The wand extension is likewise a bit short, but we have another hand-held vacuum with a very long wand that works with this as well. The other vacuum has half the suction power of this little guy. I also used it to blow out our dryer vent (and suck up lint I could reach). So overall, it earns the five stars. My main suggestion would be some hooks for winding the cord, and that could be an easy addition to future models.
Totally Inadequate ToyFrom the catalog Most portable vacuums simply lack power" quite right, including this one. I am not sure what this toy is supposed to be for, sucking the cobwebs out of the corners of the ceiling perhaps? No, the tube is too short to reach without lifting the canister to shoulder height. Sucking dust from corners of the floor then? No, not without bending down. How much does flexible tube like that cost pennies a foot?
The on/off switch is it isn't anywhere near where a switch might be expected, and is not even a contrasting color to help find it. Construction of the canister is robust but the connection between tube & hose is inadequate coming disconnected under the slightest tension. Length of power cord is far too short meaning you have to shift plugs three or four times to deal with he average room.
Definitely not worth the money and a poor advertisement for American-made products. I have rated this product a 1, but only because the site does not accept zero.

The 500W Hand Held Vacuum has a 3/4 hp fan motor producing 70CFM of air flow while drawing only 4.5 amps. The Hand Held Vacuum has demonstrated over time that its power, suction and hose length is well suited for its intended purpose - handy efficient clean up of auto, truck cab and bench top. If the Vacuum is not performing as intended, or is not suited for your needs, we will of course exchange the item or refund your purchase, with our apologies that it has not met with your satisfaction."
Great for home dustingJust exactly what I need!! it gets so dusty indoors that my regular vacuum canister with hose cant reach high enough for shelf dusting etc as well as too bulky and bumping along.. This hand held vacuum is a snap as I dust all kinds of surfaces . I add a special net in the dust brush to prevent it from swallowing screws, coins, whatnots as I dust about.. I can breath a lot easier!! Well worth the investment!!! Why those dust busters don't come with hose and dust brush doesn't make sense!! I must have a hose and brush to really dust it off!
Great Car VacI really great vac for cleaning your car. Comes with tons of accessories.
Hand Held VacGreat Product. Very strong and small enough to get into small places. Also it comes with a flexible hose which makes it able to get in tight spots.
