    It does the job but it takes a lil too long to

    Short answer: It does the job. Its inexpensive so i suppose you get what you paid for but it's not the most powerful thing. - I needed something to vacuum my car from time to time. This lil vacuum is BASIC. it has no other parts to it, so no nozzle or anything to get into smaller places like the cup holders or in between the seats.. but then I knew that. Still a lil inconvenient. (but i can't fault it for that...) - There's no indicator on the vacuum itself or on the lil charging station (which i just put on the ground... it can be wall mounted with the included screws).. so i wasn't sure if i put it on the station correctly, when it completes charging... can't tell anything about it... i just left it overnight to charge. - The suction is ok... you have to make a few passes sometimes to pick up everything so i think it took longer than i thought it was gonna take to completely clean my car. . But as i said earlier, it gets the job done... My first time using it.. i got more than 20 minutes (i even used it in my couch as finishing the car) but it didn't seem to slow down performance even after that. For once in a while clean up for the car, this works fine but if you want more than that (or if you want to finish the job quicker)... save up a lil extra money and purchase something stronger.

    Good for Small Messes

    This handheld vacuum is great for picking up small messes or crumbs. You can clearly see when you need to empty it out and the filter is washable. I do not like that when you are using it, there is air that comes out of the back of it. If you are vacuuming crumbs, you need to start at the end of the mess or else your crumbs will be blown all over your floor. Considering it has to be charged for 8-9 hours prior to using it, the battery doesn't last long. Last but not least, the suction is acceptable. You need to have the vacuum at the right angle in order for the suction to be at its best.

    After some miscommunication with the customer service team at my local store, I ended up on a wild goose chase around San Diego for this vacuum around the holidays, almost to the point of not purchasing it at all! However, I’m so glad I ended up getting this vacuum. It’s small, light and cordless and has good suction. I did some research beforehand and for the price it’s definitely well worth it. It does a great job and is nice to have for various small needs around the house.

    Stopped charging after six months.

    Purchased in February 2018. I've used it a handful of times. Never left it in the charger for too long (there's no battery charger indicator light on these things), so the battery should still be in great condition. I've charged it for an hour and it works at about 30% suction power for 20 seconds before dying. Charged it for two hours; same outcome. Charged it overnight; same outcome. Crappy product, but I got what I paid for.

    I bought this for cleaning up cat litter in our laundry room. I attached to the wall (easy). The only thing is my Fiance dropped it and broke the lid clip...........I put Velcro on it . Dust bag is easy to clean, the collection part is easy to clean. We use Equine pellets for kitty litter and this thing sucks them up NO PROBLEM. Too bad Black and Decker doesn't make a Computer.............wish my Samsung Notebook 5 worked like this thing.

    Works well for picking up dog hair in between vacuuming. It doesn't hold a lot, but enough that I could do most of a room before emptying the cup. The front part is held on by a tiny tab on the top, with about an 1/8" of plastic between the opening for the tab and the edge of the cup. Dropped it from about 2' height, the plastic between the opening and the edge broke off. Cup stays on most of the time, but it's a pain to have to hold it together to make it work.

    For the price, it's a basic small vacuum cleaner, the sucking power decreases when the filter and container gets full. Battery life is about a full 8 to 12 minutes. This vacuum is for small and minor clean ups. The exhaust is on the under belly of cleaner so you have to be aware of that. Overall, you can get a better corded vacuum cleaner for the price but for the convenience of a cordless cleaner, I would recommend with the price.

    The Good: - easy to use - wireless - portable - comes with wall mountable charger The Bad: - suction is so so - no attachments (a brush attachment is needed) - exhaust is in a bad spot so it blows trash around while you're trying to vacuum This vacuum is suitable for keeping in the kitchen when you spill cereal or need to get tracked in dirt or grass. Great for tiled floors, mediocre on carpet.

    this is a cheap and affordable small vacuum. I would not expect too much out of it, but I had to get it because I got a puppy so it helps pick up after all her hairs and other small messes. Never needed a vacuum since I have hard floors, but I have one now and it works great as I need it, just definitely a budget machine.

    Got this to replace dirt devil, , of which had purchased two and found them unreliable and short lived. Chose this because of decent review and price, but did not expect much. Surprisingly it works better than expected and has been reliable. No you don't get attachments, but for cleaning up couches, car floors and carpeted stairs, as well as this and that on rugs or hard surfaces it is all one could want.

    I was looking for a vac that would pick up crumbs on the table, grit on the floor, and pet fur. I first looked at the Shark. While it had more power and would have been better for bigger jobs, it was also much larger in size, and I don't have the space to store one more vacuum. The DustBuster is just right in power and size (and price!) for smaller jobs. I gave it only 4 stars because it is very loud.

    The power button must be held down when in use. Also, this does not come with attachments. All around suction is very good on wooden floors and carpets. it is not the best at picking up animal hair/fur. it comes with a small cradle/charger. it is a bargain for what it's capabilities are and being a handheld vacuum with just the basics.

    The Black and Decker cordless vac exceeds at what I need it to do. I use it mainly for the cars and few things in the house. My only complaint is the exhaust. Sometimes if I'm vacuuming light things like hair or small pieces of paper, due to the position of the exhaust which is under the vacuum, it blows some of the things I'm attempting to pick up.

    This is a great basic hand vac. It does exactly what it should, and because the on/off is a trigger rather than a switch, you waste less battery time doing nothing so it lasts longer. If you want something for spills or touch up on hard surfaces then look no further. I thought it would suck. Or rather that it WOULDN'T suck. But I was pleasantly mistaken.

    This does the job for me as I live in a small apartment. It is a little to large but does the job except I wish it had a crevice tool to get into small areas like the tracks on my windows. For the price it is okay but I should have spent a little more so I could use it for more things. It is not real powerful.

    Great, handy little vacuum to use around the house. I personally recommend mounting on the wall so you can grab it quickly. Only thing I would change is that the power button be a slider switch instead of a button. NOTE: To keep the unit powered on, you have to keep the button held down.

    Not the greatest handheld vacuum. The power of it is not very strong at all, and yes it was fully charged. I wish there was a brush I could connect to the end for dog hair or such. I maybe should have done a little more research. You get what you pay for with this product.

    Had to replace my Shark as it died after two uses. This little guy does just as good of a job as that one did and is still going after MANY uses. The price is less than half of that expensive boutique brand one and you will not miss the "features". I should have gotten two of these in case this one ever wears out.

    This is a super lightweight handheld vacuum cleaner, for little spills, getting into tight crevices, without needing to haul out the full size vacuum. The battery life is superb and so far, the filter is keeping all dust, etc, we'll contained. Not only that, but it's picking up tiny particles I never would have thought were present.

    Works perfectly fine! It’s light and powerful. The only reason why I’m not giving it 5 stars is because you have to keep the on button pressed all the time for it to work. But other than that it’s really amazing for the price!
