My father's day gift is a pool cleaner, but my wife was unsure what to get, so I get to choose. I read through the pool school. My budget won't allow a robotic cleaner. I see this cleaner on amazon

It is about 60 bucks more than the suction-type cleaners. Does it clean significantly better or faster than the suction type cleaner? I realize the advantage of it being you don't have to backwash the filter.
