Gtech AirRAM Review

Let's face it, not all of us enjoy cleaning.  It's a mundane chore that has to be done.  In a fantasy world, I'd love to have a maid who comes to my house every week to cook and clean for me.  I come home to a sparkling clean abode and a fantastic meal on my table.  Since that is definitely not in the cards for me, I have to clean my casa myself.  Why not make cleaning easier on yourself and use products that will help you get the job done faster?

Grey Technology is the maker of the fantastic revolutionary GTech AirRAM upright cordless vacuum.  This vacuum is lightweight and easy to move from room to room.  Simply charge the vacuum and you will receive 40 minutes of interrupted house cleaning with no cords to plug into each room.  The swivel head is perfect for getting under furniture and in tight spaces.  The vacuum is also bagless, which means it has direct dirt-to-tray technology which compresses dirt and dust into tidy bales which can be emptied right into the trash.  A unique part about this product is that you can connect it into the computer via USB that relays info on battery status, usage, and calories burned while vacuuming.  If you're looking for a vacuum to revolutionize your cleaning, the GTech AirRam is the ideal choice.

I've been needing a new vacuum for a long time now.  I have an old one that doesn't do as good of a job as I would like.  I have two area rugs in my home plus Carolyn sheds.  I need something that will have powerful suction and be able to provide me with the deep clean that I desire.

As soon as I received the vacuum, I was eager to try it out.  What I first noticed is how sleek and light it was.  It's only 7.7 pounds and is a beautiful brushed silver.  It's definitely much more aesthetically pleasing than my previous vacuum.   I plugged the battery in to let it charge for a while before I gave it a test run.  The power comes from a professional grade L-ion battery.  The motor powers the brush bar and suction fan that work together to lift the dirt.  Suction generated by the fan compresses the dirt into the front bale which you then empty into the trash.  This eliminates the dust created by a filter.  

I've never used a cordless vacuum before, and I was in awe that it works on just a mere charge! Going from room to room was a breeze now that I didn't have to plug in the vacuum in each room..  It's very easy to use and in no time I was vacuuming like the vacuum pro I was born to be.  I loved how light it was and it glided with ease across my carpets.  This vacuum was surely taunting my old one! What is most impressive is that it works well on both hardwoods and carpets, this is not just a one floor kind of vacuum.

The vacuum is not very loud at all, I would say the noise is average.  It doesn't bother me at all.  When I was done cleaning, I wanted to see what the vacuum picked up.  Let me preface this by saying I vacuum my rugs and hardwoods every 2-3 days.  I was not expecting the following results.
Look at all of the dirt, dust, and hair that was picked up from just one time of vacuuming! I really thought my carpets were ok.  How embarrassing! The AirRAM definitely goes deep into the fibers to pick up debris.  I was impressed at how much was sucked up.  The bales are small so you might have to empty them often if you are a hardcore vacuumer.  All you do is lift the top of the vacuum off the bottom to empty.  The manual says you have to clean the bale and filter every month for optimum performance.

I'm very impressed with this vacuum and I've been using it quite frequently since receiving it.  Since it's light, it very easily fits into a hall closet to store when not in use.  If you're looking to invest in a vacuum that will clean your home like a pro, I highly recommend the GTech AirRAM.
