terrible doesn't suck up anything
from Mississauga, ON, Canada
Comments about Dirt Devil FeatherLite Cyclonic Canister Vacuum:
I have always bought the cheapest Dirt Devil available, usually once a year. I only have a few area carpets so don't need and big expensive one. Until this vacuum I have always been extremely satisfied. NOT anymore...this one doesn't suck up anything. Very disappointed....Last Dirt Devil for me :(
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I had a larger unit before. Got a smaller one because of my age. This one is stronger and picks up more. Very easy to use and it will go anywhere. Takes up very small space for storage. Love it.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
One cat, three long-haired women, and 30 days without a vacuum.
We're too cheap to get a stellar beast of a vacuum, so I got the cheapest one I could find that looked like it *might* reasonably service a 3 bedroom apartment. I didn't read the instructions when assembling, and I know there are things that should be screwed in place--every so often I'll try to turn it and the bar turns in place instead of turning the vacuum (it didn't come with screws though?). It is very light and I feel very much like I'm going to break it, as others have, when I remove the dirt cup. It's really loud when you're picking up small things like little bits of dry cat food or kitty litter, to the point that I put in ear plugs when I was vacuuming around the litter box. I vacuumed the hallway, the kitchen, and the master bedroom and had to empty the cup twice, which really isn't that bad when you consider the title of my review. The kitchen is linoleum, the bedroom is very low carpet, and the living room and hallway are a little bit taller than the bedroom floor. It was a little harder to maneuver the vacuum on the taller carpet, but nothing I can't deal with emotionally and physically. It might be irksome if my entire apartment had the same carpet. Also, as I was vacuuming a piece of paper came off of the fridge in the kitchen and a piece of paper I had pinned to the wall also fell down. So there's something to say about the power. TL;DR: On the first day it works for the titular household because we have short-ish carpet in a small-ish apartment, but I'm worried I'm going to break it.

Ok i just bought this for my mil suction seems good but seems a little heavy to push i thought this would be a little easier since my mil has a bad shoulder and its hard to push and it said it has a motorized brush roll but should be okay for price and her place is small but i definetly thnk should have bought something that would have pushed itself for her guess should have spent a little more
Amazing vacuum with great features
from Los Angeles, CA, United States
The dirt devil vacuum cleaner is amazingly built to last for a long time Works great cost cheap and is strong at picking things off the rug.
Small but mighty
from Northern Great Lakes
The pictures are deceiving, this is not a full size vac. The hose is not a full size hose. And the attachments are smaller also. But the suction is full size, and then some. I was not prepared for the power of this vac. The nice thing about a smaller vac is that you can get into spaces that full size vacs can't. I have a small apartment so it is perfect for me. It's bagless and is very easy to dump the dirt. (As in, no mess) My only complaint... The rubber bumper on the edge of the base has torn off on both sides, as in poor design. But that wouldn't stop me from buying another one, and I will if they go on sale.

The Clip Broke
By Dr Joe
I thought this was a pretty good vac until the little gray plastic clip holding the cannister to the vacuum pole broke off.
Powerful little machine
from Sugar Land, TX, United States
This vacuum cleaner works very well, it picks up every little dirt. The only thing the canister that holds the glass in broke after two months. Contacted customer services and they replaced it by a new one very fast.
Recently bought this one after my older version if this vacuum broke after eight years of usage with no faults
