It's hard to place this product on my patented "Spectrum of Tank-Rankings" (coming soon! ;).
It's by no means a complete failure, nor is it a home run. It's an interesting product, one that probably has a market. But my gut tells me it's a small one, if we're judging the product by its current version, and not a streamlined future-version.
Lori pointed out that the wheels don't work very well, nor is it convenient for carrying down a flight of stairs, should you happen to live in a multi-story house - or, god forbid, an apartment building without an elevator.
Not only that, but the Lifter Hamper is pre-revenue, so Marvin's $700,000 valuation kind of falls flat for the Sharks.
Here's hoping for a better back and a better future for Marvin.
