Yup, my mom had one that was over twenty years old and still worked like a champ, gave it to my sister and bought another one that lasted about 15 years.
Unfortunately, the quality has plummeted since those days. I think someone bought them out and just slaps the name on sub-standard vacuums at this point.
I sadly purchased one of the rechargeable stick vacs with removable hand vac and it is pretty much worthless for picking up anything and the removable dust-buster type thing is physically broken after a drop from about 2 feet (not very durable). Cannot recommend on any level for any price.
