GREAT VACUUM - BUT HEAVY!!!
Purchased at Big W, wanted something a bit more durable, so B&D CDE was our choice. Powerfull, and very well Rand D on the vacuum head. Great on stairs, good allrounder.
BAD - Low life span, after 5 minutes its charge light is flashing
- Very heavy,
- Should be sold with the optional extras guys!!!!
GOOD - Very good suction and well manufactured head piece
- Very cheap
- Quality build
- Lighted head very handy

Good quality for price
This vacuum is great for smaller areas of the house suction is surprisingly good on all 3 modes works better on carpet but definitely a great buy for $199 the LED light on the vacuum head allows you to see any dust that you might have missed is a little noisy but bareable

After my Dyson failed, I bought this in a deal from BIG W. What an awesome machine. Solid, well built, high suction, light on the head, easy to manouevre, easy to empty and clean with a novel knob which when turned shakes the dust off the filter. Very good value

I purchased this as I was fed up with all the parts on my current vacuum (Hoover only 2yrs old) being so flimsy and always popping out of place and didn't want to purchase another expensive machines the suction is amazing and gets around corners much easier. I couldn't believe how much dirt/dust it picked up after using my Hoover before it. Only reason I'm not going with a 5 star is because it constantly needs emptying (I guess it's just too good lol). Also sometimes when I turn it off, some of the contents fall back out the head again. Although, since realising I needed to clean out the filter it works properly again and the suction has improved substantially. Wish it came with an upholstery attachment and extra battery.

Black & Decker - where have you been all my life
For the price, I couldn't like it more if it popped out golden eggs...
It's great on our lino, the lights help so much. Great suction, nothing so far has been tangled on the brush roll, love that the battery is removable and therefore easily replaceable if the need arises.
Again - for the price it's fantastic - if you're expecting hyped up Dyson quality pay the 1k lol

The dust chamber is too small and needs emptying after a short time. Also would be temperamental and go off after a few seconds even on a new battery and wouldnt stay on. That's the reason I got fed up and took it back to BigW.

The pre-filter is badly designed allowing it to come loose as you empty the dust canister. This part is currently not available. Now left with a new machine that is unusable. Very top heavy and needs to be stored away from children.

Good Value Stick Vacuum
I have wanted a cordless stick Vac for a long time now but the good ones just cost way too much. After seeing some decent reviews on the Black & decker unit I took a chance on one and while its early days so far it's perfect for the price point it sells for.
Battery seems ok in run time so far but you won't get the advertised run times that B&D quote but then that is something that is common to all brands including the top ones.
The power head is ok on short pile carpet but would struggle on longer types of carpet or rugs.
Still the mai...n use for me is hard floors and other odd jobs like cobwebs and for this its perfect. The build quality is rather decent and surprised me to be honest and also well designed with fittings that clip into each other with a solid feel and ease of use.

Purchased this vacuum from big w last week. Absolute waste of money. It doesn’t get anywhere near the edges and the minute you turn the vacuum off everything falls out. Wouldn’t purchase another black and decker vacuum
Purchased in October 2020 for $197.00.
Amazing! Not too loud. Not too heavy. Easy to use. And picks up EVERYTHING.
Carpet, lounge, floor boards, tiles and laminate flooring. I only vacuumed and mopped the morning before. 2x dogs with medium hair. 1 year old leaving crumbs. Couldn’t live without it now. Battery time still had 2/3 bars left after I did the entire house.

What a heap of crap
Seemed OK at first, but I didn't think it lived up to the hype on the internet, but for the price - not too bad.
Now that I have had it for a few months, I have noticed that it wont pick up everything on the carpet, just light dust and perhaps a little bit of dog hair.
It also will not pick up anything with any substance. My dog split open my wheat bag and spilled wheat grains all over the floor - the vac collected them easily and then spat them all back out when I turned it off.
I checked for a blockage - nothing, cleaned the filer twi...ce - still no difference. It is collecting the dog hair from the carpet (some of it), just wont except the grains into the canister. I then tested it on my hard floors (tiles) - It wont collect anything heavier than dust.

Disrespectful after service
I purchased the above vacuum and submitted the receipt to claim the free battery on the 19th May all in accordance with there guidelines. As I received no response, I emailed them, FB messaged (and can see that they have read my message) and even put a post on their FB wall, and to date, I have been ignored. I feel that Black + Decker is not fulfilling their obligation or even responding to my messages.

Don't waste your money
rubbish on turning off bits drop back on floor and yes filter is clean also some bits wont pick up end up using a carpet sweeper complete waste of money.

Very Capable Stick Vacuum
It has 3 power settings usually the 2nd one is sufficient for cleaning Ceramic Tiles, medium length carpet
pile ets. The ease of emptying and cleaning the two filters correctly is a breeze. No internal battery pack a plus.
Purchased in April 2020 at Big W Retail Stores for $189.00.
Can I give it more stars?
I have vinyl, tiles and carpet and this works well on all of them. I think the low setting is enough even for carpets.
I was pleasantly surprised by how quiet it was. The spinning brush head is loud when it vibrates near walls etc though.
My only negative to report (so far) is that it only comes with a crevice tool and no brush or upholstery tool. I can’t evdn find any to purchase. :/
I’ve improvised a solution to cleaning my skirting boards by shoving the tip of the crevice tool into my old vac brush attachment. So far so good.
Most impres...sed by the battery though. Great life and the option of easy and cheap replacement in the future. My last vac had atrocious battery life even from the start (5 mins?) and the battery was fused in and not replaceable. What a waste of a machine! Honestly, feels as good (dare I say, better?) than the brand leader’s popular stick vac. Feels like great quality and shows how terribly overpriced the other brand is. I guess the marketing campaigns they run are VERY expensive, and that’s what you’re paying extra for.

Questions & Answers
How do I charge battery no light comes on when I piggy back it on the thingy it’s supposed to plug into
Have you worked it out yet? If not the charging dock comes out of the holder and then you clip it on top the battery
I've only had my Vacuum for 1 month & used it 3 times, as it is for our Caravan, so not been used alot, it is always left on the charge, I've gone to use it and Nothing it won't go. When I put it back on the charger it instantly flashes 1 bar, the it jumps to 2 & then straight away to 3 bars & then when I turn it on Nothing just like it's flat, I've done this several times & it is always left on the charge. Am I doing something wrong??? Or should I take it back to where I purchased it from??
I have a new B and D stick vacuum but there is still a light flashing after overnight on charge.. Why
