    This light product goes anywhere with the suction of a giant. I use it every day. I have 5 people in my household and it is difficult to drag a full size vacuum cleaner out. I don't need to use a vacuum every day. This product makes it simple. I clean where needed. It makes me happy.

    Easy to use, light weight, stays charged, suction is amazing, does not clog, and doesn't make a racket. Easy to empty. Goes everywhere and has a lot of attachments. The price is easy on a budget.


    The canister empty is a bit cumbersome but you get used to it. I am sure there aren't many easier options unless it could be on the bottom. The side attachment doesn't stay on well but it is not really needed.

    I bought this little vacuum earlier this month and I just love it. It is very powerful to be so small. It is very lightweight and easy to use. You can get to all those nooks and crannies that you can't with regular vacuums or other handhelds. Get this vacuum, you won't be disappointed.

    The size, the weight and the attachments. It is easy to clean too. It is the perfect size for RV's, boats and vehicles. It is also perfect for travel too.


    The ONLY thing I didn't like is the fact that it doesn't have a long(er) tube, so that you can use it on the floors. You have to get on your hands and knees, but it is so powerful; it doesn't take long to finish.

    Favorite Handheld Vacuum!!!! I even vacuum my dog!
    I bought this product 12/2012 after seeing the platinum model as a give away on the Wendy Williams show. I couldn't find the platinum in store & it was $$ so I got this Black & Decker FHV1200 & absolutely LOVE it! I use it every single day & even bought my mom one. It's light weight, has great suction & useful attachments. The pet hair attachment works perfectly- I clean the underside of my couch cushions with it & I even use it on my dog while she's in her chair! I ordered 2 extra filters & a new brush since i use it so much. I've asked Santa for a Platinum this year!!!! As for the reviews on the charge- if it's a refurbished machine that could be the problem. Mine lasts about 15-20 minutes at a time going non stop- I mean who even vacuums their carpet for that long? It's a mini hand held vac- does your DustBuster last longer than that? I keep it on the charger when not in use & have no problems.

    Suction, portability


    Brush wears out quickly, filters $10 each a little pricy but worth it

    Great, great little vacum
    The wife and I both use this little jewel often. From cleaning up around the fireplace to out in the cars and boats. Picks up the dog hair off the rug and furniture really well. Have not had any issue with battery life?? I would and will purchase again. In fact we just picked one up for one of our daughters for Christmas

    Portability, power and attachments

    short battery life but gradual depleation
    The vac is really powerful off the charger. Expect at most a ten minute run time with a gradually slowing motor. Don't run the battery flat to the point where nothing happens when you turn it on. You will get slightly longer run times if you recharge when the vac can no longer pick up dirt. If you stop and empty the dirt half way through use, the battery will regenerate a bit and the clean filter means less work for the motor. I recommend that everyone should buy two of these. The reason being, when the first one goes dead you can put it on charge and use the second. Charge time is much shorter on a battery after its initial "break in".

    I like the vac being cordless best of all.


    What were your engineers thinking when they designed the power system on this vac? I would rather buy multiple battery packs than multiple vacuums. Think McFly!

    Love it
    I have had this item for quite a few years and love it. It works great for spot cleaning and we use it many times for quick pick up around the kitchen area instead of dragging out the big vacuum cleaner. We live in the country and I am constantly using it to vacuum the entry way to our home. I keep it plugged in all the time and have not had any issues with the charge or suction.

    The brush cleaner works great on baseboards.


    No complaints.

    I thought that initially it was just my fault for not charging this vacuum long enough, but now after I have used it..I can not return it and so unhappy with its horrible suction and horrible battery life.

    Portable and cordless


    Everything! I could have bought a shop vac cheaper and would have 100 times better suction...Super unhappy with this purchase. I am going to call customer service and try to get a refund some how! :(

    Excellent suction power and battery life for a cordless vac
    This is the best cordless vac I've ever had or used - the suction power is the best. It has excellent battery life - what are those other reviewers expecting? It runs powerfully for as long as I need it to. After all, it's not meant to vacuum a whole house! I've had mine for two years with absolutely no complaints. A friend bought one after seeing and trying mine and she's had no problems with hers.

    The excellent suction power and good battery life.

    I bought this canister vac because I thought it would be handy around the house and to clean my car. The suction was good but the problem is that the battery life is horrible which makes the product useless. I wish I saw these reviews before I made the mistake of purchasing this product.

    Battery life stinks
