I'm delighted with this sweeper! So handy, light and convenient. Would recommend it to everyone as an every day addition to vacuums. So much easier to get out and use quickly and it is quiet so the dog doesn't bark at it( unlike the vacuum!) The only thing I haven't quite got used to yet is pulling out the tray to empty the bits out. It's a little bit fiddly somehow, but it's probably me not the sweeper! I've had it a couple of weeks now and it's still not needed a second charge up. Have used it on several occasions to give a quick once over to the hall and lounge carpets and it picks up well.
