WHO WOULD BUY THIS?
This is an interesting alternative apartment cleaner to the much sought after wave and dust models.
Its lightweight , still ( 8 pounds- about 2kgs- ); but not 100% as maneuverable in versatility as the wand variety. The genius of this design is in the construction materials, because though it is bigger than the wand versions, but also just as easily storable, because the handle is collapsable. It is robust enough to be able to take on serious cleaning tasks , yet it is still quite light- weight enough for people who are infirm or tired. The battery runs on 40 mins of full lithium-ion powered charge. (the pros and cons of this battery have already been discussed.)
The reference to 1984 is the 1984 design take on an item with a millennial design functioning savvy for those retro design trendy junkies!
The most positive aspect is that this is a vacuum for a serious apartment cleaning- working at high cleaning performance on multi-floor surfaces. It is equipped with an innovative power foot and special brush roll design to easily negotiate cleaning from surface change to surface change.
Swivel steering and an easy transformation to lay flat handle makes its maneuverability under furniture and over any surface a very easy cleaning task. Despite the different design to the one currently gaining so much popularity, it is still very lightweight and storable.
If you are one of those people, who cant get used to handling this old-time vacuum chore with some kind of millennial wand waving the dust away, and prefer to just push it along, feet on the ground , as you used to you might like this model.
It is light and powerful enough to help you handle enough difficult dirt without physical stress and distress after a hard day at work. However, the advantage of the wand type, is that you can reach easily into upper dust areas, as well.
The dirt bin is removable with a simple slide-out action. This slider handles the evacuation of any kind of dirt easily, – debris, hair, dirt- anything.
Poor lighting conditions? Dont worry – state-of-the-art, wide-range lighting will make the dirt you never even imagined was there immediately visible.
THINGS WE LIKE?
The fact that it suits the apartment dweller who feels comfortable cleaning the old way without losing out on anything really essential which makes modern design so appealing light-weight, easy to store, very maneuverable over any surface, with a special features which give it a touch in a class all of its own – led lights etc
THINGS WE DONT LIKE?
The fact that high place reach does not come with the design. Maybe the cordless time is a little too brief to vacuum really efficiently; thus the time saving convenience intended by cordless power, might just be an ongoing wait and recharge time waster and frustration. Power features or not, this might work only in very small spaces, with fairly limited cleaning needs despite the trendy night-vision specifications.
There are many features which make this model appealing. Possibly one of the most would be that in a darker apartment with poor natural lighting, the LED feature is really a positive. As an alternative to the stick design, yet with just as many smart features, (and some more), this could work in a small apartment space where long-period vacuuming is not needed- otherwise 40 minutes and then recharge, might become quite a frustration, instead of a smart and easy cleaning routine.
