Consumer review by: Terry G (

Lost its appeal quickly


Loved it at first BUT.....Lightweight, cordless, ergonomic. Opted for this model thinking it would be a convenient everyday stick vacuum to go over (very light) traffic areas (small, carpeted areas such as hallways). I noticed it lost suction after...

Consumer review by: PBB (

Dirt just keeps rolling out of the brush wheel and back onto the floor, doesn't suck up anything.


wkward to empty due to its design so I need to use disposable chopsticks to reach clogged areas. The roller brush at the base is constantly clogged with hair and needs to be cleaned by hand before each use and even then, still just rolls the crumbs...

Not Recommended.


Had one for about 3 years. Suction has always been mediocre, as is the running time between charges. It is also very fiddly to put onto the charging stand. Now the battery has died and not worth the cost of replacing. Very disappointed in the product...

Only had it 2 days but so far delighted


I suffer with a bad back and find my normal vacuum cleaner leaves me in great pain for days, but this is so light , easy to manage , and the hand held part, goes where the other one can't reach and it is so quiet , I can use it at night when I feel...

I have to agree...


That this is a fantastic little cleaner, handy, easily stored, stands up right on its own, which most of the other models do not. Drawback is that the suction nozzle on the detachable vacuum part blocks up with cat hair. There are two screws on the...


Just un-blocking tge nozzle for cat haid

Poor Battery Life


We purchased the Handy 2in1 a bit over a year ago and the batteries are useless already and it doesn't get used full time and they are not easy to replace, we have been told you can get replaceable batteries but it would nearly cost as much as a new...

Very Disappointed - Broke way too easily.


um units that are apparently pretty good).

Relatively lightweight, battery charge seemd to last OK.

Detachment/reconnect options dodgy & weak, some parts of the handles too weak & easily broken, unimpressive suction.

Very Disappointed - Broke way too easily.


Bought one of these brand new for around $200 (I think?) late 2009, seemed OK for a year or so though I was always unimpressed with the suction from the start. Part of the long handle broke soon after the warranty period expired making it far more...

Consumer review by: et1404 (



without charging the unit it had great suction and collected cat hair and very fine dust extremely well and with ease, without having to go over an area time and time again. The operation is relatively quiet in comparison with some other machines I...

Great suction power, very manoeuverable, does an excellent job and quickly, great value

The release button for emptying the dust container is a bit tricky; would've liked some more attachments, like a brush head
