On the most part, it acquitted itself well, if a little noisily – it’s certainly nowhere near as quiet as the competition, but that’s due in large part to the powerful suction.

But, it did manage a good job with the assorted fluff and cigar debris that was lying around, including the accumulated debris behind a sofa from various cats.
