I LOVE THIS CONTRAPTION!!!!!!!!!!!!

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.

Pros: 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.

Cons: 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.

THE CUTEST LIL HANDHELD YOU EVER SAW!!!

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.

Pros: 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.

Cons: 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.

Pros: Suction, portability

Cons: 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

Pros: Portability, power and attachments

Cons: nothing

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".

Pros: I like the vac being cordless best of all.

Cons: 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!
