4.0 out of 5 stars I'm kind of in love, July 6, 2012
This review is from: Dirt Devil Purpose for Pets Canister Vacuum (Misc.)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I own too many vacuum cleaners, but I feel like I can't get rid of any of them because none is perfect for all uses. I have hard floors throughout the house, but also a couple of rugs. I have two cats, and a couch that needs to be vacuumed regularly.

This vacuum might enable me to get rid of my Bissell upright (which did fine on the carpeted floors I used to have, but does a miserable job on hard floors) and the Bissell Pet Hair Eraser I use for vacuuming the couch. It'll probably also mean I can keep the Shop Vac, which I've actually been using as my primary vacuum, in the basement.

The suction on this thing is great, and I love that the primary attachment has a switch for hard floors vs carpet, as well as that the main extension arm (what's that called) is actually telescoping, rather than three separate pieces as they usually are. Pretty nifty.

This works great on the wood floor, sucking up both hair and the random scattered litter tracked up by the cats. It also worked great on the small rug I keep inside the front door, though not so well that I'd necessarily want to vacuum a huge amount of carpet with it. The special electrostatic attachment was GREAT at getting hair off the couch -- way better than the Pet Hair Eraser is. Way, way better.

The only thing that bothered me while I was using the vacuum was that the canister didn't roll around very easily. It wasn't terribly difficult, but not as smooth as I think it should be. The cord could be a tad longer, but it's certainly not weirdly short or anything, and I was able to do both my living room and dining room without having to move the plug. The power button was, well, right where I'd expect. There are several filters that will need to be cleaned out from time to time, but the way it's all put together makes sense to me, and I don't expect that to be a hassle.

The other con is that although the attachments you'll most often need are actually stored in the handle (which is pretty cool), there isn't a built-in way to store the electrostatic attachment that I could find. I think I'll be able to deal with it, though, as I'll be able to open up some closet space by getting rid of at least two of my other vacuum cleaners. Wahoo!
