Monster 550XL Hi Performance 2-in-1 Hand & Stick Vacuum w/ Accessories
Nice at First
This was really nice at first. Lost suction after about a month. The button holding the canister needs some work. After very few times emptying the canister, it is now hard to open and close. Looks like it could break if not extremely careful. Ended up getting a shark rocket.
Purchased to vacuum carpet on steps inside my house and vacuum car. Has very little suction power. Has a tough time picking up fuzz or small objects....would not recommend. You would be better off to spend a little more money and buy a Dyson hand held.
just stopped working
Bought this in May 2013. It stopped working today, less than a year old. Used it for picking up parakeet seed from 2 parakeets. Never buying another vac from Q V C. Of course it is out of the 90 day warranty. Happened before on a skin exfoliant machine.
Too light weight
The sweeper head will not stay flat to the floor, so I must continually step on it to push it flat. It picks up dirt well but the time to keep pushing the head down is a pain.
I bought this to work on my furniture covered in dog hair. I have a great vacuum for my floors, but it wasn't easy to use on my sofas. We have a German Shepherd, who is a beloved member of our family. But her hair is hard to remove from furniture. This product works great!
Not worth it.
I've had this vac less than a year and it has stopped working, right in the middle of a job. The cord is not long enough and it doesn't have enough sucking power to get all of the dirt into the cup, when you stop use, a lot of the dirt comes back out of the extension wand.
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.
