My husband bought this for his place before we were married. We have the olive green one from a few years ago. I have always had dogs, so I have always needed a great vacuum. My Bissel was no longer usable after a decade so I pulled the Dirt Devil out of the closet....I have been using it for several months. It eats belts, has no suction, doesn't do bare floors, heavy,bulky and hard to manuever, won't roll over it's own cord. For bare floors I have tried EVERY possible adjustment, brush on, brush off. The power brush doesn't work either, I bought a seperate one for my Bissel and it works better with the Dirt Devil than the one it came with.
