It's really a devil
17 August 2014
Summary: This is by far the worst vacuum cleaner! It stopped working after the first run around the top floor of my house. It kicks dirt out and makes cleaning up twelve times worse than before I used it. I've changed the filter, I've adjusted the belt and after cleaning a very small room, you have to dump the canister. It doesnt pick up hair very well, I'm very disappointed. No matter the cost, it is not worth your money!
Bad vacuum, clogs, maybe if you don't have a pet it could be ok

Summary: When I bought this vacuum cleaner, it worked all right, but after a few weeks of not even using it that much, it started clogging every time I tried to vacuum. I took it apart and cleaned it out, and it seemed that it was getting clogged with my cat's hair. The hair was getting all tangled and matted with dirt, forming little hose-sized dreadlocks that were just really hard to jam out of there with a screwdriver or a coat hanger or something that you'd think would be...
Moderately happy choice - but hair and lint are problematic

Summary: I got mine at a discount store, around $50 a couple years ago. Initially it worked well, about as well as my former canister vac from Sears, a $90 machine (price 15 years ago) I suspect the decreased power has to do with lint getting into the rollers, and lodged in the inner parts of the intake channel/hose. Sometimes the hair/sand, pet fur stays in the upper chamber and backs up into the outlet that delivers the debris to that chamber.
Summary: We move a lot. The first time I bought this vacuum because it was the cheapest one in the store and we needed temporary household basics while we waited for our regular things to be shipped. I was very surprised at how powerful this vac is. I have three toddlers so I'm vacuuming at least three times every day, usually after every meal and once before bed. I thought that amount of use would kill this little thing but it held strong.
Summary: I was nicely surprised. When I found out it only had 7 amps, I almost took it back but decided to try it out. I have another Dirt Devil that I hate. It’s a 12 amp breeze. It’s difficult to empty, the HEPA filter is located inside the dust cup, so I have to pull out the HEPA filter every time and literally pull off all the dust and hair off of it. It’s an allergy nightmare.
Summary: I have a Dirt Devil Quick Lite Cyclonic which I can't find anywhere online and this is what comes up when I search it, but the thing is trash. I've used it maybe 5 or so times and I can't use it anymore. It blows dirt, dust, hair, everywhere! It leaves a trail of dust and dirt wherever it goes and it sucks up NOTHING. This was the biggest waste of money and when I tried to complain to Dirt Devil of course they try to tell me its my fault.
Summary: First thing to keep in mind is.... you get what you pay for. In this case, you're getting a small (it's got a narrow path), lightweight (will feel like it's made of cheap materials... because it's lightweight plastic), noisy machine. However, the suction is wonderful. I have a Bissell that I just got tired of unclogging (a design flaw that plagues most Bissell's) and when it's belt broke, I didn't feel like replacing it.
Summary: I bought this vacuum at target for 35 dollars about three weeks ago. I have used it every day since I brought it home . At first it was amazing, it worked much better than my other vacuum a $200 bissil ever had, but it has slowly gotten worse and worse. As long as i clean out( and by clean out I mean wash with water every time I vacuum )it continues to be an amazing vacuum but if I skip rinsing out the tubes or the filters the vacuum mis-behaves the next day, the belt...
Fantastic vacuum that is easy to lift, small to store, and fun to use!

Summary: I bought this vacuum cleaner for $25 on Black Friday at Target. I was expecting a loud obnoxious awful thing for the money, but I haven't had a vacuum in a year, so I decided to just go ahead, how bad could it be? This vacuum is awesome and totally exceeded my expectations. I love the small size, the height (it is comfortable for me and I am 6' tall!), and the color! This is the perfect lightweight small vacuum for my apartment.
Summary: I recommend this inexpensive, strictly workmanlike vacuum for students, bachelors getting their first place, and others with strictly utilitarian demands. It does one job, suck up dirt, well enough for your purposes, but with minimal bells, whistles, or ancillary conveniences. Its short cord does well enough for dorms and apartments, but would cause more problems than it solves in full-sized houses.
