Being that this is a Dirt Devil I had much higher expectations but have been truly disappointed. At first this vacuum worked like a cyclone. I was happy, it is light weight, no bag to deal with and have to find and buy. Of course not to long I found that it started to lose "power". It loses suction over time and you just end up pushing dust and dirt everywhere, The filter is difficult to clean and clogs easily. Also the bend in the suction tube at the bottom easily clogs and is not easy to get into and clean out when it does. At this time it more or less sits in the corner of the room and has been a clothes hanger for us, it's done a great job at that, too bad that's not what I bought it for or maybe I wouldn't be so disappointed. Maneuverability Light weight and small so it is fairly easy to maneuver about. Ease of Maintenance You spend more time and effort cleaning the filters and clogs out of the suction tube than you do vacuuming. Suction Performance You better plan on going around your floor picking up everything that is larger than dust as the suction on this product not very good. This leads to things getting stuck in bends in the tubing and adding to the suction issue Versatility It's a vacuum with a few added tools, it's really no different than any other vacuum. Design This vacuum has a thin body, foot control tilt and easy to access on the handle on off switch but that is where it ends for the good. The bends in the suction line make it prone to clogs, and the canister is difficult to put back in once it is removed. Durability Unfortunately this does not make the grade for durability. At first it seems that it has great suction but over very little time this is not the case. Clogs over heat this vacuum before you realize it and it shuts down.
