I purchased the Dirt Devil Vision Cyclonic vacuum for it's superior suction however.... I am very dissatisfied with the rest of it overall. The brush attachment is rubber and all the little rubber bristles broke off within a few months. No more "dusting" with this. I tried to attach a bristle brush from another vacuum but the suction does not come through very well. I constantly have to empty the canister and clean the filters. The dust blows everywhere when I empty the canister. How is this better for allergies when everything you just vacuumed up is blowing around in the air when dumping the canister?? I would much rather have a vacuum with a bag! The small roller brush attachment broke after about 6 months so now I have no attachment to do my carpeted stairs. Maneuverability Too lightweight and the hose keeps popping out of the bottom right side of the vacuum where the hose attaches. Ease of Maintenance I do not like having to constantly dump the debris canister..very dusty and gross. The debris gets blown way up into the canister and won't dump out. I have to take it apart to empty the contents that fly above the full line. Washing the filters after every use is a pain as well. Suction Performance Superior suction! Versatility Does a lousy job on my floors..definitely just for carpet. Durability Constantly overheats and turns itself off even when I start with a clean filter and canister. Doesn't hold much dust and debris before needing to empty the canister and filters. I can never finis all of my vacuuming at one time.
