The Dirt Devil Vision is a good vacuum for the price. A great feature is the retractable cord, which makes putting the vacuum away a simple task. Maneuverability Because the vacuum is so light, it's easy to move around. That's handy for anyone older or someone who has health issues limiting their normal activity. Ease of Maintenance The filter gets dirty often, but I just take it outside and either tap it on the deck railing or let the wind blow the dust out. It's really not difficult at all. Suction Performance Suction is good but the brushes get long hairs, strings, etc., tangled in them easily. Versatility Goes from carpet to vinyl without any trouble. The retractable cord is a great feature but isn't very long. Design The canister is easy to empty, which I do every time I vacuum. Durability Some parts are plastic, unlike the old vacuums that had metal pieces.
