Good for floors not carpet
If you’re on a budget and have floorboards or hard style carpets (industrial, non plush) then for $47 this is not a bad machine.
However, if you have plush carpets or carpets that were once plush and not so plush now, I would not recommend.
You need to vacuum over and over on the same spot and sometimes bend down to dislodge or pick up fibres that it just can’t pick up.
You must empty the dust bucket and clean the filter VERY regularly or it won’t vacuum as well.
The hand held component is not as comfortable as other vacuums and you can tire easily, so if you have wrist issues consider this before purchasing.

Not recommended. Cheap but not recommended
Purchased form Kmart based on the reviews I saw here, usually trust the users but guess we are on different spectrums on this. I thought I would write a proper review (note this is my opinion). The price is good. Hard to fault that, although its not value. Light, so you can move it around but the handle (too short you may need to bend) is so light it doesn't allow you to properly vacuum. The suction on the vacuum is bad. I have carpet so the main reason you buy a vacuum but the suction is not strong enough. I had to go over the same area 4-5 ti...mes before I thought something happened. I tried the tiles, same thing, had to go over a few times, in the end, used a brush. The bin size is alright, but device is not worth it. The vacuum doesn't really do what it is built for, pickup dust and particles. I would recommend looking at another product

Good for a caravan
Good suction but overheat and shut down after 20minutes of continuous use. Good for vacuuming a car or a caravan, probably. Its pretty loud. I returned to the shop as it was still in warranty

You get what you pay for!
Surprise, surprise, it’s dead two weeks after warranty has run out, and we only used it in a holiday house. It was cheap, but you definitely get what you pay for! Suction is quite strong, but cord is too short, tube is easily clogged, it’s quite noisy and barrel doesn’t hold enough. Guess it would be ok for a small unit or as a car vac. I would not recommend.

Reliable and convenient
Carpet and floorboards and tiles. Cleans well vary reliable and convenient doesn’t tip over good quality better than my previous Dyson. Good suction picks up most materials light weight easy wheels.

Works well. Easy to use.
Great value for money.
Great suction on all floors.
Massive dust catcher.
Cleans all surfaces extremely well especially carpets. have used it frequently for over a month and is suckin' strong. Just remember to clean the filters every now and then.
The only negative is that it could do with a longer hose fitting.

For a cheap price this is perfect
I purchased this bag mid of 2019 and hasn’t failed on me and I don’t think it will any time soon. It’s affordable and works great. I had a cordless vacuum before that was a lot more expensive from Another store and only last me 2 months so Thankyou Kmart for supplying the good

It does everything I need
Great cheap vacuum cleaner and it does everything I need. I do vacuuming twice a week and clean filters every two weeks or so. Not sure why people buy super expensive D***n vacuum cleaners for basic vacuuming... I can have ten of the cheap ones and return it to Kmart on warranty or simply throw it away when it breaks.

I was reasonably happy with the vacuum until it started smelling of burning and smoking. The vacuum was empty so no blockages and only a couple of months old, wont be buying another one.

Not bad for the price
Purchased a cheap vacuum that would get my family by until I could afford a better one. At first this vacuum worked quite well but after several uses it took several attempts to suck up dirt/hair/particles from the carpet but works better on lino and laminated floors. Being a bag less vacuum means you don's have to spend more money when replacing the bags. This makes this vacuum much easier to clean. Not a bad product for the price or to just get you buy.

I mind mind using this vacuum created by Anko bought from kmart, it is cheap and worth the price, it works just as good as the expensive one, highly recommended
Best vacuum ever
I brought this product and using it since 1 year, it is fantastic and super value for money product. Best in performance specially if you have carpet and you need high suction.

Impressive, affordable vacuum 2 years on
This is the only bagless vacuum I have owned that has lasted past the 1 year mark.
I have previously spent double this amount on another brand only for the unit to clog up and become beyond economical repair.
This vacuum is extremely impressive and still going strong! The vacuum does not tip over. The cord is a decent length which allows me to clean room by room in their entirety. I have 2 dogs and it does a brilliant job at collecting their fur, and it is satisfying to see it all collected inside as you empty it.
This unit is extremely easy...to clean, not too many steps involved in emptying the container. I use this on both tiles, all through my apartment, and on a carpet that sheds. Provided you are being reasonable with what you're vacuuming the unit will not get clogged. If any clogs occur it is an easy fix. I wash it out thoroughly once a month and it looks good as new each time. Very impressed. Give it a try. I know there are expensive models out there with a lot of hype surrounding them, but if you just have a smaller home this Kmart vacuum will absolutely suffice!

Excellent VALUE. Inexpensive and great vacuum for the price.
For under $50 (bought this in Jan 2020 for $47), this is a fantastic vacuum cleaner. As I only have two bedrooms with carpet (rest of the flat is laminate flooring), I didn't want to buy a super pricey vacuum. This vacuum is great in terms of performance versus cost. It cleans the carpets more than adequately. Perhaps not the deep deep clean of a $500 dyson, but I don't see any issues.
I've used it on the hardwood floors and it works just fine. You don't need super suction power for non-carpeted surfaces anyways. There are two attachme...nts with this vacuum: the crevice brush tool for conrners and such, and a small upholstry vacuum head. The latter is great as I've used it on a couch already. My previous vacuum didn't have such an attachment. I really like that fact that this is bagless (my first ever bagless one). Those bags were dirty and gross to empty. This Kmart one has a detachable part that contains all the vacuumed dirt and such. Just take it outside and empty it into a bag and then put it in the bin. Don't empty it inside. The unit is small and easy to manoeuvre. I have tipped it over once or twice, but not a major problem. I just wasn't paying attention. There are two other bagless units that Kmart sells. I chose this one because of the price and because the dirt container was not a primary concern. This one, which has 2000W power, has a small container. The 2200W and 2400W models (currently $69 and $95) are larger containers (they call it 'dust capacity'). If you have a lot of carpeted area, and find emptying the container annoying, you can get one of the pricier ones. You'd get a bit more power as well, and a few other nifty features (e.g., the 2200W and 2400W have HEPA filters).
