Summary: Reputable brand name, for a disaster product imitating a useable small vacuum cleaner. You will NOT BE PLEASED to know this is not reliable, and will stop [maybe from overheating?] after 10-12 minutes of use . You will be REALLY DISSATISFIED when trying to place all "vacuum heads" in any provided means of storage. FORGET the clean and simple display photo, it doesn 't approach the common sense foul-up.
Summary: Within 6 months the unit would not power up. The trouble came clear for a month, then reappeared. The local authorized dealer took 7 weeks to fix it. He blamed the factory for not shipping him the part. The unit broke again 2 months later, but this time it wouldn't turn off. Since then I've just been plugging it in when I need to use it and unplugging it when I need to use it.
Summary: I bought this machine less than 6 weeks ago to use on the laminate floors in a small house. It was very noisy and the tools were cheesy, but I did like the retractable cord. Today, after using it for about 20 minutes it stopped working. I've changed the bag (1/2 full) and am waiting to see if an hour's rest will let it work again. Although I've bought other Dust Devil vacuums they at least were reliable. Guess the old saying about buying cheap is true.
Summary: I did read most of the reviews before making this purchase, but honestly, it was much worse than I expected. This piece of crap (sorry but it's true) does not have any suction at all!! It seems that based on the horrible noise it makes, there would be enough suction, but it seems that the suction doesn't reach the bottom piece at all!
