Summary: This is the best vacuum for a college student, or anyone just getting their own place! It's inexpensive, it's light, it's easy & it works! I've had the vacuum for 5 years & feel no need to upgrade to a more expensive vacuum because this one has always done the job well!
Summary: I received this vacuum cleaner for my birthday, and it's absolutely horrible! As others have pointed out, it merely blows dirt and dust back on top of itself. I basically have to vacuum my carpets using just the hose until I can afford to buy a better machine. Don't waste your money!
Summary: This vacuum worked for the first few months just fine. I was pleased to see the canister fill up with all kinds of gunk from my carpet. Emptying out all that gunk, not so pleasing or efficient. Lately the vacuum has been less effective. Using it in my bedroom results in a cloud of fur and dust. I was suspicious so I went over a spot of the carpet very well. Afterwards, I took a lint roller to the spot. TONS OF DIRT AND FUR. This thing blows.
Summary: This vacuum is utter garbage. When I first got it, it took maybe 20 minutes to vacuum my small sized living room, because I'd have to go over the same spot over and over just to pick up the dirt. It never worked on hard flooring, it'd just blow the dirt around. A couple uses later, and the suction is nonexistent. I cleaned the filter and every other piece of the vacuum, and it still doesn't work.
Summary: We have a Bissel Healthy Home vac and I LOVE it. We have three dogs over 50lbs and two cats and LOTS of carpeting. People who are allergic to animals come to our home and never even get a sniffle. I wanted to get a second one for upstairs, but my husband got a "good deal" on this dirt devil. I was upset, but a it's a vacuum, so I used it. The belt broke the SECOND time I used it. When it does work, it doesn't even compare to the Bissel.
Summary: I've had this for about a month now, and I'm very happy with it. The blower is on the front near the bottom, but it doesn't blow the air at the floor, it blows up. I have a three bedroom apartment full of tile, and have had no problem on bare floors. It's also done a really good job on my rugs that I have hear and there...picks just about anything up...and I have two kids! I also love that I can get under the edge of the couch.
A leaf blower or a vacuum cleaner ? a leaf blower for sure

Summary: whomever designed this piece of junk has got to be out of his/her mind, no wonder is $49 (wife bought it not me), you get what you pay for I guess, but I know other ways to throw my money away and enjoy it, chuck-e-cheese ?? (maybe they were the designers). I use it as a leaf blower, unless I want to chase a piece of fur or a feather all over the house, trying to suck it in with the vacuum at the same time that it is blowing it away, (sometimes is fun when you are bored.
Summary: It's been pointed out by other customers, but the design on this vacuum cleaner is astonishingly stupid. The exhaust blower is perched on front of the vacuum, meaning that particles of dirt and dust are constantly fluttering out of reach before you can suck them up. I chose this vacuum specifically because it was recommended for bare tile and linoleum by Consumer Reports, but I might as well be using a leaf blower for all the good it does.
Summary: All vacuums have an air exhaust somewhere on them. Incredibly, the Dirt Devil designers placed their's right up front just below the headlight, so air blows hard on the floor directly in front of the vacuuum. Anything loose (e.g., dog hair, dust, paper, grass, etc.) is blown away BEFORE you can reach it with the vacuum. Vacuuming with the Dirt Devil becomes a game of chase. Good luck as you try to sneak up on the dirt before its blown away from the vacuum.
