DOES IT WORK? Palin of vacuums

I'm a sucker for a good vacuum (I dream of getting a Dyson one day) and the swivel sweep looked like a good buy. It's a great idea but a somewhat lousy execution. First the good stuff; it's lightweight, and instead of wheels it uses sliders.

The bad, it's a bit noisy, the handle in particular, and general construction seems a bit under whelming. The battery also seems to disappoint; it only lasted about 10-15 minutes. Which should be enough, but then the appliance also spits out the contents it just picked up.
