Summary: To my surprise this hand vac is very powerful. I originally had bought the cheaper model and after failure I bought this one. I love it! I should have never wasted my money on the cheaper one! This one has much more suction!
Summary: Does not suck up dirt. Big waste of money. Could have swept floor in 5 seconds compared to trying to hold this vacuum for 5 minutes to get a handful of dirt off the floor. Buy a new broom and dustpan. Don't waste your money on this.
Summary: I miss the light weight, big capacity and strength of my Black & Decker that died. It picks up dry pet food poorly and pet hair on a rug not at all and must be emptied after 1-2 uses. It's so big it's awkard to use and doesn't fit under a dining room chair. I have to haul out my big vacuum for small daily tasks that I bought the Devil for.
Pros: Easy To Empty
Cons: Heavy, Insufficient Suction, Little Capacity
Summary: This vacuum sucks!! And not in the way it's supposed to! Lost power quickly and didn't pick up anything within a few months of light usage (only did stairs with it once a week.) Very disappointing since my last handheld (a Shark) lasted close to 3 years. Be leery of buying this. Waste of $$$.
