Evaluation

While many vacuum cleaners today try to be different and look rather radical, this product stands out with its simple design with an ergonomically designed handle and a beautifully laid out display that is neatly positioned within the unit. Taking into consideration the various housing issues specific to Japan, the product is equipped with a silent mode and is compact enough to accommodate the country's complex room layouts, ensuring ease of use in Japanese households.
