Monster 550XL Hi Performance 2-in-1 Hand & Stick Vacuum w/ Accessories
Handy Little Vacuum
I read the other reviews, and I have to say that mine is working good. I have one upstairs and one downstairs. I have another vac for tile floors, but this is good for those little jobs, like bathrooms, kitchens. I have not used it as a hand vac yet......I'm pleased
I used this product for the second time today and after about two minutes of use I could smell the motor getting hot so I turn it off and waited a few minutes then tried to use it again but it would not turn on. The motor had burned up. It has been more than a month since I purchased the item so I'm not sure I can send it back to QVC. The product has a one year manufacturer warranty but I have to pay for shipping plus send the company $9.95 for return shipping. I could then have over $20.00 more dollars in the purchase and it is not worth it to me. Plus the warrant states it only covers parts and not labor.
I am so sorry that I did not take this out right away and try it out..... too late now to return. what a terrible vac... no no suction at all!!
the parts I find are cheaply made and wish I had read the reviews on this ,,,it was an impulse buy , I think a tsv price.
my old hand vac does 100% better job than this thing... so sorry I jumped at it for the price and after watching Rick that night when so many people were ordering it.
I purchased this vacuum for myself. If you are looking for a vacuum cleaner that is light, easy to use, and does a great job this is the one for you. I wanted a vacuum cleaner that I could use on my wooden floors, as well as my stone tiles in my kitchen. Love this vacuum cleaner it does an awesome job in sucking up the smallest item and dust!
Sorry to say, but this was the BIGGEST PIECE OF JUNK - I have ever bought. It was a waste of money......Never Again....
I was so hopeful, but this vacuum turned out to be very noisy and had very poor suction. The size was just what I was looking for, but it really performed poorly.
OK, it's got issues as described - it gets hot and shuts itself off - and then, eventually, it will work again, it doesn't hold much so you have to keep an eye on the dust cup. But, for a quick little job - like when I dropped an entire jar of flake fish food onto a chair, you can't beat this thing. And it really shines on the stairs, and sucking up dust and whatnot from around the toilet and all those horrible awkward small areas. So I own 3 of them, w. no regrets, gave my mother one and explained all the issues - and she loves it for the stairs, too.
I'd recommend it, with reservations. But handy!
Easy to use
I love this little vacuum. Its fast to grab, and light weight.
I thought that this little vac would be the perfect thing to pull out and clean stairs, cars etc. I found that the suction was extremely poor and the dust cup so small I have to constantly remove it and clean it out. The suction becomes even worse as the cup fills which is almost immediately. I used this vac a few times but was so frustated, it now resides in a closet. Further, the pieces do not stay together well and pull apart very easily. I would NOT recommend this vacuum. Don't waste your money. I wish I had just sent it back. Good Will probably wouldn't even want it but that's where it will probably end up.
This was not a good purchase. Although it was nice to have a lightweight stick vac that did an OK job at picking up debris, shortly after purchase the canister cup began falling off as I cleaned. What a mess. The two telescoping attachments would come aprt as well. It was also very very noisy. Not worth what I paid. I threw it out this weekend and will look for something better.
This vacuum does not work like showed on the show. It does not pick up everything & heats up & turns it self off. This is as very poor product to be called monster, it does not preform like a monster vacuum. I would not recommend it to my friends. I have wasted my money on this product. I waited too long so I can not sent it back to QVC.
Not So Good
Can't recommend. Not bad for a hand vac as it has a power cord so no recharging but cheaply made. The extension tube broke within 3 months and I couldn't control the floor attachment because it was too light. Can't lean on anything because it's top heavy and tips over. Oh well!!
