Almost 5 stars; no regrets yet....UPDATE: 3 months later to 5 stars
on November 23, 2012
UPDATE: after three months of use, it is still a winner. So, I upgraded to 5 stars from 4. Will update again if any noticeable changes.
I bought this on black Friday, 112312, for under 40, locally. I have a Hoover Breath Easy vac, but I wanted something specifically for pet hair. My Saint Bernard/Jack Russell mix places clumps of his hair under every table and furniture, secretly, when I am not looking, it seems in revenge for frequent combings. I can just barely detect a look of glee in his face for annoying me. Back to Dirt Devil:
It is a bit cumbersome to put together, but I don't mind because it is a one time event.
I replied to a concern that the hose keeps slipping, but if one pushes, with a twist, a bit harder, it will stay on.
It does a very good job of cleaning the couch and chairs of pet hair with the power brush tool.
The BEST part is the suction. My Hoover fills its bag after 3 carpet and hard floor cleanings. But, the Dirt Devil Jaguar Pet bagless vac had 10x the dirt in the 1st cleaning and 5x the dirt after a 2nd cleaning soon after the 1st cleaning. I am very impressed. And, it is 1/2 as heavy as the Hoover to push around, so I don't know if that means it is less sturdy. Time will tell.
