go over the negative and the positive points of the unit beginning with the negative in order to paint
a realistic picture for the reviewer.
Users found the unit to be noisy but did not believe that it made more noise than other hand
vacuums on the market. The unit can only pick up things found in the middle of the tip because it
does not open from side to side.
After a year of use some reviewers found that the unit would start to lose power shortly after being
turned on. Users were shocked when they found out that the battery would be almost as much to
replace as the entire unit.
There were a number of positive aspects to the unit including the fact that it picked up a wide range
of messes on a variety of surfaces. The unit cleaned messes up quickly and was found to be easily
cleaned in the dishwasher without damage of the parts by those that tried this cleaning method,
although it is not the recommended method for cleaning the parts.
The fact that the S1120 wet/dry vacuum cleaner is cordless and hand held, and with mostly positive
reviews and even negative reviewers able to find positive aspects of the unit, we can recommend it
to consumers that want a fast, easy way to clean up virtually any mess.

charged very quickly.
