Summary: I bought this specifically for dealing with the various accidents my cat would undergo on my carpet. I wanted one that had wet or dry functionality, wherein I could douse the stain in water then vacuum up the wash. Well it did exactly as intended, leaving a pristine carpet in its wake. It's also useful for quick dust-ups on crumbs in the kitchen etc. Obviously this is no substitute for a regular vacuum cleaner, so maintain your expectations on power etc.
Summary: I picked up one of these to replace a tired Lidl budget hand held Vacuum which refused to charge after years of use. Have to be honest, I am overall quite impressed. Before I go on read this part it's logical but often overlooked... - No it's not as powerful as a household cleaner, but then it's a hand held Vac so you should have realistic expectations - You have to "clean and wash" the sponge filter from time to time.

Summary: We have had on of these Black and Decker before but made the mistake of not getting one strong enough. This however is ideal for our purpose. Quick and easy to pick up crumbs and bits from surfaces. Good buy.
Summary: I've owned my Dustbuster for two months now, and can't believe I've reached the grand old age of ** without it. It has been used every few days and is absolutely brilliant. Without making my house sound too much like a flea-pit, it is brilliant for: dust-bunnies in hard to reach places; tiled floors like bathrooms where all the dust gets blown to the edges and under the radiator; windowsills with shrivelled house-plant leaves, when you can't be bothered to move the whole...
Summary: This was bought as a replacement for another Black and Decker which had lost its suction after several years of use. It is not exactly as the picture shows, it actually has a single handle, so is unlike my previous one, but I am very happy with it. Although it is a lower voltage than the previous one it seems to be just as good, so I'm pleased with this purchase.
Summary: This has replaced a 6 volt version which saw good service for about 12 years when the battery finally failed. I was a bit disappointed to discover that the rechargeable battery was not replaceable. I hope this one lasts as long - however in this case I do know that the battery is not replaceable.
Summary: The product is doing the job as explained, however, the time it functions on a charge is not a lot. I was somewhat aware of this when I bought this product but now I feel I should have gone for something more stronger and with more battery life.
Summary: I got this as I kept finding little bits of dust/fluff in my small child's play area and instead of picking up all the toys/books everytime to sweep the area I now use this vacuum to gather the little bits when I see them and I find it very hand as my little one was going through a phase of eating small particles!! I have found the battery can go down quick enough but having said that it suits me for great handiness.
