The worst dustbuster I've ever owned. Usually they last at least a year or so before losing their suction power. This one worked great for a week and then lost all suction. It can suck up the lightest clumps of pet hair, and that's it. Even the tiniest particles of dirt don't get sucked up with this thing. I don't know why it's so terrible, I have cleaned it thoroughly as per instructions. My only regret apart from buying this hunk of junk in the first place was not keeping the box so that I could return it (as mentioned it worked well the first few days). I hate the thought of throwing it away - not just $80 plus tax down the drain but it sitting and rotting in landfill for all eternity - yikes. What a waste.
