Great for price
Recently purchased as was sick of replacing bags in my old model. It is great compact easy to use and empty. Would be better if it had a tool storage. Sucks very well. I have wooden floor boards and cleans well.i like the flip out brush on the crevice tool so you can do tracks and sills.all round good vacuum for the price. No complaints from me for my budget.
OK vacuum cleaner
It has its good and bad sides. It isn't too expensive and would be a good choice for a rental apartment if you are not planning to keep it for long. It's bagless so more hygienic, you just have to empty and wash it regularly. It's not too noisy and quite light. Now a downside - after a while a handle fell off so had to put a duct tape over it which wasn't too bad. Also after a few month it started to smell bad when operating (as mentioned I emptied and washed it after every use so not sure why it happened). Overall is an OK product for its price for temporary use.
Was ok but you need to empty often.
It's ok with suction, it's very light and somewhat quiet (for a vacuum cleaner!) vacs up dirt on both my carpet and tiles, also does well on the concrete in my garage! But the issue is the cord isn't very long and I found that I had to use and extension cord to get around my house!
Affordable but not reliable
This particular vacuum actually broke less than 3 weeks after purchase . The suction was terrific & the bagless chamber made for easy disposal . However because the pipe broke away we had to return it .
It wasn't from incorrect storage or use , medium size residence with mid grade carpet plush .
Ok for the price.
Bough it as I needed a vacuum cleaner quickly and it was one of the cheapest one. Is decent, takes a while to actually vacuum out stuff that are kind of stuck in the carpet. Got a new Dyson vacuum afterwards and can clearly see the difference in suction power, however if people are looking for a cheap vacuum that does its job this will do, and it is light to carry too so bonus points
Not too bad
Quite a good product for the price. Has good suction and is lightweight makinh it easy to glide around. Heigh adjustment is quite easy . Cord length could be a little longer. As for the noise i find it a little on the loud side but still bearable. Would recommend.
Cheap, not so dirty
Cheap make, simple design, not aesthetically pleasing. not apparent at first how to empty the dust canister, but simple enough after some playing around.
it is able to clean the floor, but not a "Deep" clean.
for the price, i would buy it again. it does the job adequately.
Good for the price, but may have trouble sourcing bags
I chose this due to the bagged design, rather than similar-priced bagless models also available in the vacuum section at Kmart. However, there may be issues with purchasing replacement bags beyond the five that come in the box, as I don't believe Kmart sells them. I have only vacuumed a handful of times, so I have yet to even fill the first bag.
I find the suction to be very adequate on full power. The buttons are easy to operate and the auto-retracting cord is convenient, but potentially dangerous, as it can retract quite quickly. On max po...wer, the unit is quite loud, so you may want to use some minor hearing protection if you're vacuuming for an extended period of time. There is also a bit of a plasticky smell from the unit when using it, and it can get quite hot during use. I would be concerned about overheating in extended use.
Cheap but not effective
I bought this vacuum cleaner more than a year ago as it was quite cheap, bag less and I didn't want to spend a lot of money on a vacuum cleaner. I also live in a considerably medium sized apartment. It works for very light dust but the suction is quite bad. So if you're planning on doing an okay job with vacuuming and still having a bit of dust around the house it should be fine. However in saying that it has lasted for over a year now!
Overall, it's okay if you're starting out and you don't want to spend a lot. It's not the best but it's definitely not the worst. If you are a bit of a neat freak, I wouldn't recommend it and I would encourage you to spend a bit more and go for a stronger suction/vacuum.
I find that this cheap bagged vacuum works really well for pet fur. Better than my more expensive one. I was told by a guy from Godfreys that unless you service your bagless vacuums regularly pet fur will kill the motors very quickly. This cheap little vacuum does the job well and the bags are easy to change.
