The Dirt Devil QuickPower M0896RED Handheld Vacuum is powerful (little loud and it does blow from the side vents quite strong). It has a little built in brush which is great for sofas.

The basket is small and needs to be emptied frequently to get the full power of the vac. I wish it had a stick to I didn’t have to bend the whole time I was using it.
When it’s clean it will pick up the scattered sand from the cat box which many others don’t do and it does a great job on dog hair. It has a little extension nozzle for getting under the frig and in the corners. I use this and the Eureka Boss stick vac, with rotating brush for carpets, daily and only need to use my full size vacuum a couple times a month. It’s definitely worth the money.
