Dirt Devil Vision Canister

Dirt Devil Vision CanisterThe Dirt Devil Vision Canister vacuum is a bagless model with a pretty stylish red and silver exterior. This model is also designed specifically with pet owners in mind. In this review of the Dirt Devil Vision Canister vacuum cleaner, I’ll go over this model’s strengths and weaknesses, then decide if it’s worth buying. You can currently get this unit for around $125. Here’s a rundown of the features you’ll find on-board this model: a 6 ft stretch hose, auto cord rewind, HEPA filter, a turbo brush carpet nozzle, crevice tool, dusting brush, upholstery brush, aluminum wand, 20 ft power cord, and variable speed controls. The non-marring wheels on this vacuum are pretty neat, and it’s easy to push around as well because it’s fairly lightweight.

OK, onto the negative aspects of the Dirt Devil Vision Canister vacuum. One thing that’s pretty annoying about this model is that the filters are pretty expensive and harder to find. I also don’t like how short the power cord is. The 6 ft stretch hose helps with the reach, but you still have to plug it in multiple times for larger rooms. I don’t really care for the carpet pet hair attachment that comes with it. I think this model does much better on bare floors than on carpet – especially trying to get hair that is embedded deep into the carpets. Last issue I have with the Dirt Devil Vision Canister vacuum cleaner is that some parts seem to be made of pretty cheap plastic. Other than those couple issues, this unit is quite a little workhorse. For its price range, there really aren’t many models that are much better than this one. Overall, I’m giving this model a 4 / 5 star rating.

Dirt Devil Jaguar Power Pak

Dirt Devil Jaguar Power PakThe Dirt Devil Jaguar Power Pak is a canister model with specially designed Motor-guard technology and a 12 amp motor, to give it some extra power. In this review of the Dirt Devil Jaguar Power Pak vacuum cleaner, I’ll go over this model’s positive and negative aspects, then decide if it’s worth buying. Currently, you can buy this model for around $180 – which is probably on the expensive side for what it is. Here’s a rundown of the features found on it: automatic cord rewind, HEPA filter, bag indicator light, variable speed controls, motorized brush roll with on and off switch, Motor-guard technology, 12 amp motor, crevice tool, dusting brush, swivel casters, upholstery brush, and an 18 ft power cord. This vacuum actually has a decent amount of useful features. The styling isn’t the most attractive, but you can’t go too wrong with an all-black exterior.

OK, onto the negative aspects of the Dirt Devil Jaguar Power Pak. First off, the power cord is entirely too short. I know the hose and wand help lengthen the reach, but it’s still not that great. A couple users have had problems with the head of this model getting clogged up, and the brush roll not functioning properly. I would say these issues are probably more of a fluke than anything – but, still something to think about. Another thing you have to worry about is trying to suck up a lot of pet hair. This model tends to get clogged up pretty easily, especially if you have large amounts of fur. Lastly, I think the Dirt Devil Jaguar Power Pak vacuum cleaner feels a little bulky, and the styling is a little out-dated. Overall, I’m not quite sure what to make of this model. It has some great features, and does a fine job of cleaning up the house – but, then there are some issues with it as well. I’m giving this unit a 3.7 / 5 star rating.

Dirt Devil Ultra Swivel Glide Review

Dirt Devil Ultra Swivel GlideThe Dirt Devil Ultra Swivel Glide vacuum is an upright model with specially designed casters, which allow it to turn effortlessly. In this review of the Dirt Devil Ultra Swivel Glide vacuum cleaner, I’ll go over the positive and negative aspects of this model, then decide if it’s worth buying. Currently, you can find this unit on sale for around $70, which is a very reasonable price. Here’s a quick rundown of the features you’ll find on this model: Micro Fresh filtration, patented swivel casters, 12 amp motor, 25 ft power cord, a headlight, 5 height adjustments, stretch hose with extension wand, crevice tool, dusting brush, and it’s also very lightweight. At this price level, you really can’t expect a whole lot of extra features on a vacuum. However, this model has a pretty decent line-up.

Alright, onto the negative aspects of the Dirt Devil Ultra Swivel Glide vacuum. First off, I don’t like that it doesn’t have a brush roll on and off switch. This makes it a little too messy to clean bare floors well. On carpet it does great, however it can be a little hard to push on high pile carpets. I’ve also noticed that this model can get pretty noisy at times. Overall, I’m pretty impressed with suction power and agility of the Dirt Devil Ultra Swivel Glide. By no means is it on the same level as a Dyson, but this vacuum cleaner does a fine job of cleaning up smaller spaces. I’m giving it a 3.8 / 5 star rating.

Dirt Devil Tattoo Review

Dirt Devil TattooThe Dirt Devil Tattoo vacuum is a canister model with several different prints to choose from. To be honest, they look more like vector designs – but that’s not a bad thing. In this review of the Dirt Devil Tattoo vacuum cleaner, I’ll go over the strengths and weaknesses of this model and decide if it’s worth the $90 price tag. I actually think it’s a great idea to try to turn a boring, every day appliance into a hip, eye-catching machine. Here’s a quick rundown of the features you’ll get with this model: a 20 foot power cord, automatic cord rewind, 11 inch nozzle width, a powerful 10 amp motor, dusting brush and crevice tool. Obviously, the feature set on this vacuum is not too extensive – but, it at least covers the basics.

OK, onto the negative aspects of the Dirt Devil Tattoo vacuum. One complaint I have is that the bag and canister area is very small. This model is definitely meant for smaller living spaces. On the other hand, being smaller makes it easier to store. Another thing I’m not too fond of is the suction power, which really isn’t that great. It does much better on bare floors than carpet – so that’s something to consider if you only have carpet. All in all, the Dirt Devil Tattoo vacuum cleaner is a nice little unit for very small spaces, but don’t expect it to replace your powerful upright model. As it is, I’m giving it a 3.8 / 5 star rating.

Dirt Devil Power Reach Review

Dirt Devil Power ReachThe Dirt Devil Power Reach vacuum is an upright model with some character and a decent price tag – currently selling for around $90. In this review of the Dirt Devil Power Reach vacuum cleaner, I’ll go over this model’s strengths and weaknesses, then determine if it’s a good buy or if you should pass on it. As I mentioned, I really like the styling on this model. The top part has a little flair out, which almost reminds me of a Dyson. Here’s a quick rundown of the features you’ll find on this unit: a motorized brush roll with adjustable height settings, a crevice tool, stretch hose, dusting brush, back-saver wand, HEPA filter, and an easy-empty canister. The 14 inch cleaning path is pretty handy for bigger rooms. I definitely get the feeling that this vacuum is intended mainly for carpeted houses, with the brush roll and the included attachments.

OK, onto the negative aspects of the Dirt Devil Power Reach vacuum. First off, the stretch hose isn’t long enough and the main unit tips over if you extend it too much. Also, the hose keeps coming off when you are trying to use it. Another thing is that it does horrible on bare floors. I know this model is intended for carpets only, but it’s still annoying if you have a mix of carpet and bare floors. The components also seem a little cheap – but not horrible. Overall, the Dirt Devil Power Reach vacuum cleaner is still a pretty good unit. It has great suction power, and the price is wonderful. I’m giving it a 4.3 / 5 star rating.

Dirt Devil Easy Lite Canister Review

Dirt Devil Easy Lite CanisterThe Dirt Devil Easy Lite canister vacuum is a stylish, yet fairly inexpensive model – at just $90. I think the charcoal and red colors blend well together. In this review of the Dirt Devil Easy Lite canister vacuum cleaner, I’ll go over this model’s strengths and weaknesses, then decide if it’s worth the price tag. First off, here’s a rundown of the best features on this unit: HEPA filter, motorized brush roll, it does edge cleaning, has a telescoping wand, a few on-board tools, and it’s fairly lightweight at just 15 lbs. The suction on this vacuum is surprisingly good. And, it’s nice that it works on multiple surfaces. The fact that this model is fairly cheap is definitely an asset to this model as well.

OK, let’s move onto the negative aspects of the Dirt Devil Easy Lite canister vacuum. Well, I just mentioned that it works on multiple surfaces, but it can be very difficult to push on thicker carpets. This can be back-breaking work if you’re house has wall to wall shag. Another issue I have with this model is that the power cord is only 20 ft long. I know the wand helps lengthen that amount, but it’s still pretty short. Also, I think the exterior is made of pretty cheap materials. Overall, I’m a little undecided on the Dirt Devil Easy Lite canister. It’s wonderful on bare floors, but not that great on carpet. For the price, it’s a decent model. I’m going to give it a 3.8 / 5 star rating.

Dirt Devil Featherlite Review

Dirt Devil FeatherliteThe Dirt Devil Featherlite vacuum is a fairly cheap upright model, costing right around $45. As you can imagine, it’s a pretty lightweight model, but in this review of the Dirt Devil Featherlite vacuum cleaner I’ll take a deeper look at it’s strengths and weaknesses. First off, here’s a rundown of the best features found on this unit: a 25 foot power cord, easy empty dirt container, HEPA filter, motorized brush roll, telescoping wand, stretch hose, crevice tool, adjustable height, headlight, and it can be used on bare floors or carpets. This vacuum weighs just 12.7 lbs, so it does live up to it’s name – although, there are a few lighter upright models out there.

Now we’ll go over the negative aspects of the Dirt Devil Featherlite vacuum. First off, the build quality seems to be a little sub-par. At this price level, it’s somewhat to be expected though. It seems to work a lot better on carpet than bare floors. It tends to spread the dirt around a bit if there’s no carpet. The filter in the dirt cup is pretty hard to clean and this model is also pretty loud. Lastly, the suction power of the Dirt Devil Featherlite isn’t quite as good as I’d like to see. Overall, I would give this vacuum cleaner a 3.8 / 5 star rating.

Dirt Devil Power Flex 2-in-1 Stick Vacuum Review

Dirt Devil Power Flex 2-in-1Our Dirt Devil Power Flex 2-in-1 vacuum review: As the name suggests, this model is both a stick and hand vacuum cleaner. As far as the style of the Dirt Devil Power Flex goes, I think it looks great. The curved edges and sleek red design are very attractive. Here’s a rundown of what you’ll find on this model: 12 volt battery powered, motorized brush roll, a 10 inch cleaning path, swivel nozzle, folding handle, and it only weighs 8.8 pounds. It costs right around $50, which is pretty much in line with similar competitor models. As I mentioned earlier, I think the design is one of it’s biggest selling points.

Now we’ll take a look at the problems associated with the Dirt Devil Power Flex 2-in-1 vacuum. First off, the plastic seems very cheap – even though it looks nice. I’m afraid something will eventually break off of it. Another thing I don’t like is how short the battery life is on this model. I know battery powered models typically don’t last long, but this one seems to have an especially short life. Lastly, I’m not that impressed with the suction on the Dirt Devil Power Flex vacuum – it could definitely be better. Overall, I would have to give this model a 3 / 5 star rating.

Dirt Devil Versa Power Vacuum Review

Dirt Devil Versa PowerOur Dirt Devil Versa vacuum review:It’s not every day you come across a $20 vacuum, especially one that works half way decent. Well, the Dirt Devil Versa Power is one such model. A few of it’s best features include: converts to handheld vac, crevice tool, 13 inch cleaning path, bagless design, and an easy empty dirt container. As you can see, not a lot of extras on this one, but more than you’d expect from such a cheap vacuum cleaner. I think the design can actually be considered one of it’s best assets. It looks super stylish and slim. Also, it is super-lightweight at only 3.8 pounds.

Now I’ll go over a few things I don’t like about the Dirt Devil Versa vacuum. First off, the 16 ft power cord is way too short. I know this isn’t a model you would sweep up the whole house with, but it would still be nice to have a longer cord. Second, it doesn’t do so well on carpet. It’s actually only meant for bare floors, so this is understandable. It just means you have to use a different vacuum on those rugs. The Dirt Devil Versa Power model has pretty good suction for a small unit, but it’s definitely not going to pick up anything too big. Overall, I’m giving it a 4.2 / 5 star rating.

Dirt Devil Dynamite Vacuum Review

Dirt Devil DynamiteOur Dirt Devil Dynamite review: If you’ve been looking for an inexpensive vacuum, this $30 model may be your ticket. While the Dirt Devil Dynamite may not be the prettiest vacuum cleaner on the market, it does do a decent job cleaning up small messes. A couple of it’s best features include: it only weighs around 12 lbs, has a telescopic handle, it cleans all surfaces, and it has a scatter-guard nozzle that helps trap debris on hard surfaces. One thing I really like about this model is that it’s corded, instead of battery-operated. As you can see, it doesn’t really have too much more than the basics, but you wouldn’t expect that from a very cheap vacuum.

There are a couple complaints I have with the Dirt Devil Dynamite. The first is that it’s made out of very cheap material. Again, it’s what you expect from an inexpensive vacuum cleaner – even so, it would be nice to have high quality materials. Also, the suction is pretty good, but not great. All in all, it does a good job cleaning up small messes, but don’t expect it to do a thorough job cleaning up your entire house. I’m giving the Dirt Devil Dynamite vacuum a 3.8 / 5 star rating.

Dirt Devil Accucharge Stick Vacuum Review

Dirt Devil AccuchargeThe Dirt Devil Accucharge vacuum is a very sleek and slender model. And, it actually has pretty good suction for being a battery powered vacuum cleaner. In this review, I’ll go over some of the Dirt Devil Accucharge model’s best features and it’s downsides as well. As I mentioned earlier, the design and style of this model are stunning – it looks great. Here are a few of it’s other nice features: rotating brush, bagless design, allergen filter, Energy Star compliant, folding handle, and it also has a swivel head. The amazing thing about this vacuum is that it weighs less than 6 lbs. This is about how much a hand vac would weigh.

Now, I’ll go over the potential negatives of the Dirt Devil Accucharge stick vacuum. As with any battery powered model, the battery does not last long. Unfortunately, this prevents you from doing a real thorough job. Also, I think the $62 price is just a tad too high for what you get. Most of it’s competition is in the $30-$50 range. Other than those two issues, the Dirt Devil Accucharge vacuum would be a great addition to your cleaning arsenal. I’m giving it a 4 / 5 star rating.

Dirt Devil Ebony Easy Lite Vacuum Review

Dirt Devil Ebony Easy LiteOur Dirt Devil Ebony vacuum review: Being in between a stick vacuum and a regular upright model, the Dirt Devil Ebony Easy Lite is great for small to mid-sized cleaning jobs. It’s also nice that it weighs 9 lbs, which is light enough to carry up and down stairs with ease. The premium stretch hose is used for the on-board tools – which are actually pretty useful. A couple other features found on this vacuum are: adjustable-height motorized brushroll, an easy empty dirt container, HEPA filter and a couple tools.

At only $40, the Dirt Devil Ebony vacuum is definitely one of the cheaper models out there. For a cheaper model, it actually has pretty good suction power (although, some would disagree). However, the plastic exterior is very cheap looking. The noise level is also pretty loud for such a small vacuum. Also, it does not do well on bare floors – it’s more of a carpet model. Overall, I really like the Dirt Devil Ebony Easy Lite vacuum cleaner. It accomplishes what it was made to do, and at a great price. I’m giving this model a 4 / 5 star rating.

Dirt Devil Vision Cyclonic Review

Dirt Devil Vision CyclonicThe Dirt Devil Vision Cyclonic vacuum (model m140005red) has a 15 inch cleaning path and comes with a good amount of accessories. The Vision Cyclonic is easily one of Dirt Devil’s most powerful models, with a 12 amp motor. There are actually a number of note-worthy features on this vacuum: a 25 ft cord, HEPA filtration, multi-height adjustment, stretch hose, easy to empty dirt cup, headlight and of course the on-board tools I mentioned earlier. I particularly like the 5 height adjustments, which allows for easy carpet and hardwood cleaning.

I wouldn’t expect the Dirt Devil Vision Cyclonic to perform on the same level as the higher-end competitor models, but for $90 you can’t do a whole lot better than this one. As with a lot of Dirt Devil products, I think the plastic exterior seems a little cheap – but I haven’t heard of too many complaints about them breaking. Also, I think it works a lot better on carpets than bare floors. Even with these few issues, I still give the Vision Cyclonic a 4/5 star rating.

Dirt Devil Easy Lite Review

Dirt Devil Easy LiteThere are a lot of Dirt Devil Easy Lite reviews out there, and I’ve noticed that the vast majority of them are positive. For the most part, I would tend to agree with them. I think the Dirt Devil Easy Lite canister vacuum is a bargain at just $90. It’s not the best canister vacuum out there, but it’s hard to beat at that price.

There are a few things I really like about this model. First off, I noticed how quiet it runs – even the wheels on the canister itself didn’t make any noise when dragged around. I also like the suction power on the Dirt Devil Easy Lite. A few other features that make this an excellent buy: the handle is adjustable, it works well on carpet and hardwood floors (I think it works best on hard floors though!), the retractable cord and it is lightweight.

The Dirt Devil Easy Lite vacuum does have a few drawbacks as well. For starters, it’s a little hard to push over carpet. I know there is a setting for carpet, but it’s still not super easy. I also don’t like the quality of the attachments, they are pretty cheaply made. Those are the main two things I wish would be fixed. Other than that, I think the Easy Lite canister vacuum is a great buy. I give it a 4/5 star rating.

Best Vacuum Sweeper – Two Top Vacuum Sweepers

Best Vacuum SweeperFinding the best vacuum sweeper wasn’t easy, I have to admit. There seem to be a fair amount of vacuum sweepers available, but a lot of them are just plain junk. I did find two different models which I think are worth purchasing. They both have their good and bad qualities, but in general they do a good job at picking up light dirt around the house. Below are my two top vacuum sweeper picks.

The Dirt Devil Power Sweep BD20020 model makes my list as a best vacuum sweeper. A couple things I really like about this model is that it swivels at the base, it’s lightweight (4 lbs), the battery charge is pretty good and it has an easy empty button at the bottom. The price tag on this one is around $40.

The second one I really like is the Bissell Perfect Sweep Turbo vacuum sweeper. This model actually has a 3 brush system, so you can clean up any floor surface. It can also convert to a hand-held sweeper for tight places and stairs. The one thing that can get annoying is that hair gets snagged in the brush system and you have to clean by hand. However, this is a very common problem with most brush vacuums. This vacuum sweeper also sells for around $40.
