The price is highly competitive with other, more heavily advertised, bagless cyclonic vacuums. Assembly was simple. It's easy to use and very, very effective. It's lighter than many but heavier than some. Still, it picks up a great deal of dirt, especially pet hair, is easy to clean--including the two filters--and exceeds the performance of our previous lightweight bagged upright substantially. Included tools are easy to set up & use, though the flattened end of the crevice tool should be longer. Overall, it's an excellent product that I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.
