    Shockingly light!

    0 5/5 eV - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Dirt Devil Featherlite Cyclonic Bagless Canister Vacuum, SD40100 (Kitchen) I bought this vacuum cleaner as I had previously had a simmilar model in Germany. I was shocked by how light it is and was not confident in how well it would clean, but it does surprisingly well and after a few days' use, I trust it to last.It sucks well, has small but effective wheels on the sides of the hose at the head which ensure it won't scratch hard flooring and the rubber-ish surface on the two big wheels mean that it moves reliably over my varnished hardwood floor without marking.The little independently rotating wheel underneath, which enables it to move freely in all directions, broke off from my original model in Germany - that does not appear to be any more sturdy on this version, but I'll add a comment later if it happens.Overall, this vacuum cleaner is light and effective, moves well across my hard flooring without marking, and appears to be equally good at cleaning my rugs! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 11, 2012

    Wonderful for carpets

    0 5/5 AG "ageorge1" - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Dirt Devil Featherlite Cyclonic Bagless Canister Vacuum, SD40100 (Kitchen) I researched a lot and ended up buying this one. I have a fully carpeted floor but I did not want to buy the regular huge upright vaccum cleaner that is difficult to maintain, is noisy and is heavy. I am impressed by how compact this one is, and it fits my needs perfectly. At one press, the wire retracts. The height adjuster adds to convenience. The price is right and it cleans perfectly. Highly recommend this product. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , July 5, 2012

    Small and powerful

    I was looking for a small, powerful and inexpensive vacuum cleaner, and this is EXACTLY what I got with Dirt Devil Dynamite. I was looking to replace my old stick-type vacuum cleaner which was okay for hardwood, but just too weak to pick up anything from carpet.I already have a fairly large carpet steamer which I regularly use. I didn't want another clunky machine to take up very expensive square footage in my house. I also paid quite a bit for that steamer, so I didn't want to shell out for a vacuum as well. However, I did want a vacuum cleaner with some power to it.1) SMALL: The first thing that caught be by surprise is how remarkably small this vacuum cleaner is. I think the lady in the picture is rather short because the canister part hardly even reaches my kneecaps! Size-wise it almost looks like a child's toy!2) ASSEMBLY: There's virtually no assembly required. Just snap in the handle and it's good to go.3) POWERFUL: It picked up... 5/5 Ena (Chicago, USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    This thing sucks

    I got this vacuum for thirty bucks so keep that in mind. There are units out there that cost ten times that. So how does the Dynamite Plus stack up? It sucks! Very, very well. I don't think I have ever used a vaccum that had such powerful suction. I bought a Dirt Devil cordless unit (the one that no one seems to like) about a year ago and it was garbage. I wondered if anyone really needed cordless while in the confines of their own home. Most likely not. Why not trade the dubious benefits of cordless for maximum sucking power? For the price there is proably no vacuum made that is more powerful. So why only 4 stars? Despite a vacuum that seems well built, convenient, light, bagless, portable, etc., there is one thing that is insanely ridiculous about the Dynamite Plus' design. All of that powerful suckiing power shoots right out a front grill of the vacuum. Like a tornado!!!! The first time I used it was in the kitchen it it literally blew all of the photos and notes off my... 4/5 PhotoGraphics (Southwest U.S.) - See all my reviews, December 6, 2007

    0 3/5 HelpfulInfo "D" (Mahwah, NJ) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Dirt Devil Dynamite Plus Bagless Upright Vacuum with Tools, M084650RED (Kitchen) You really can't beat the price for the quality and ability of this little vacuum cleaner. But beware, it is little, best for smaller spaces or an apartment. The suction and hose attachment function well. It's very portable and easy to remove the canister. Although getting all the debris out of it takes a good amount of shaking. All in all a nice option if you don't have a lot of square footage and want a light, little cleaner. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , July 27, 2010

    The Breeze is a mixe bag(less) of good and not so good

    First off, how do you say "mixed bag" about a "bagless" vacuum? Well however you say it, here is my opinion on it - the good and the bad. I purchased mine as a second vac, and despite past nightmares with entry bagless vacs, wanted something I could empty after each occasional use vs. store away with a partly filled bag.On the pro side: This unit is VERY light in weight. Great for those with arthritis or anyone who is carrying a vacuum up and down stairs. What is not lightweight is the power - it definitely has good suction. I also like the slightly narrower width whem compared to most other vacuums - 13" wide vs the more common 15" wide may not seem like much, but this fits in narrow places yet is still a full power vac.On the neutral side: Emptying is easy, but like most entry level bagless units, the filter is a mess to deal with. Best bet is, from time, use a second vac to clean this units filter, or used canned air outside upwind.Attachments are okay... 3/5 A. Maier (Fort Wayne, IN) - See all my reviews, May 11, 2008

    Built Like a Tank, Sounds Like One, Too!

    I've had my Dirt Devil Breeze for (3?+) years now (Obviously an older version but based on what I see from the picture nothing had changed much.) Bought this as replacement to a previous vacuum cleaner which had the "fan" (not sure if this is the correct word for it) that was in the path of the dirt (I believe that was a hoover). I used it to pick up some solid object and got stuck in the "fan" which caused it to break on me. The design of the breeze was a lot better since the filter catches objects before it gets to the suction mechanism. Overall, does what its supposed to do.Cons:- The exhaust out in front was definitely a design "duh". But you wouldn't realize it till you use it for picking up light material (e.g. small bird feathers).- Is there an easier way to switch from bottom suction to the onboard tools?- Emptying the canister is definitely a hassle (but sames me money in the long run)- *LOUD* And I cannot say this enough.

    Sucks for the $

    From an industrial designer's standpoint, it's a pretty decent vacuum for the money. Let's be honest here - this is a cheap vac, I got mine from Target for $39 and I don't expect it to be as quiet, powerful, or well built as say a Dyson. I did expect this to be almost as light as my little eureka stick vac for floors and be almost as powerful as my big Bissel full sized vac on carpet and with attachments for dusting, so with one appliance I can clean my new multi-story house with carpeted stairs more easily. Well it works great as an all purpose vac.Other reviewers have pointed out some other flaws, which I do agree with, but it's understandable, given it's size/price range. It has the basic features and looks of a full sized cyclonic vacuum, only shrunken down to just a bit bigger/heavier than a stick vac. At 7 amps, it has pretty good suction when the filters are clean, but it's small size means you have to clean them more often.

    Not sure about it yet

    Just got this vacuum today. It picks up great. Vacuumed my carpet which had already been vacuumed earlier today by my other vacuum and was surprised at how much more this vacuum picked up. But when the vacuum roller hits the rug, it makes a laboring sound. When it is not making contact with the rug, it sounds normal. Loud but normal. I'm not sure if this is the way it should sound because that means excess labor on the motor and the belts. I called the service center but they told me to bring the vacuum in. I just bought the thing. I don't want to travel miles to get it looked at in the Service Center too.It has on board tools that you attach to the hose but it doesn't come with an Extension Wand so, when you use the hose, (which is very sturdy, I must say) and have to stretch it to reach, the whole vacuum lifted up off the floor.

    I actually meant to buy the other Dirt Devil on this site, the Extreme Quick which got all the great reviews. I accidentally got this one instead, but when I tried it out, it worked FANTASTIC. I have a small apartment and a cat, so hair is a problem. I was amazed how much this cheap little vacuum picked up. I have a full sized Bissell that has stopped working - doesn't pick anything up any more. The only time the Dirt Devil seems louder than any other vacuum is when I'm using the hand tool. That does get rather loud. Other than that, I didn't even notice a difference in noise from the Bissell. Very easy to empty the cannister, much easier than the Bissell. I would caution first time users to stop and check how full its getting though, because this thing picks up so much crap it's real easy to go over the max fill line.
