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.
Purchased in November 2019 at Kmart for $47.00.
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.

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.

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!

Best cheapest vacuum I owned
This is my third vacuum in two years as most vacuum cleaners don’t have the suction I’m after
I own a cat and after I used this vacuum I couldn’t believe the whole barrel was completely full of cat hair even though I had vacuumed with my older style vacuum only days ago. It definitely picks up!
Barrel is easy to remove and put back.
Works well on different surfaces
Cord isn’t very long and hose looks a little flimsy however I’m happy as it works.

I use this on short pile carpet and ceramic tiles and it works great. I've had it for about 2 years and its still going strong. Easy to clean and still great suction. Falls on its side easily but thats no big deal for me. Outlasted an upright Bissell i purchased around the same time.

not bad for a cheapie
easy to use and easy to empty. Lightweight and not too big and bulky. I use twice a week as i have cats and has not lost its suction yet. Have had over year so i think thats quiet good considering other cheap vacuums i have had
Purchased in March 2018 for $50.00.
Great for a cheap vacuum
Great for a cheap everyday vacuum. Works well although I have had problems with the head coming apart unglued. But as a mum of 4 I use it every day to every second day and it does the job

Value for money
I used it on very dirty carpets. Worked very well. I saw same vaccumm at target for almost double price. It worked well , didn’t face any issues. May be the room size was small so i didn’t experience any tipping over.
Purchased in March 2019 at Kmart Retail Stores for $49.00.
Great value and does the job
I use this on wooden floor and carpet and this does seem to have great sucking power and does the job. Sometimes it overheats and turns off briefly which is the only bad thing. Tips over occasionally when the cord gets caught.
Purchased in December 2017.
Good Price and works perfect
I am happy with this Vacuum cleaner. No worries at all. Easy cleaning with good suction pressure. I looked up in Big W where they had similar product- $10 dearer. One of my friend mistaken it as a Dyson while looking at it and realized his mistake which a pleasant surprise of him.

Reliable vacuum, has never broken down. Doesn't tip over much, comes with an extendable power cord. A bit noisy, and suction power decreases significantly when hair is stuck inside, but also quick to clean and unclog. The only major design issue probably lies in the structure of the compartment that holds the dirt, and unfortunately is very difficult to put back together. Otherwise, a good model that will likely last for a few years.
The vacuum it self is very easy to use it has two modes one for carpet and one for flat surfaces. The vacuum preforms well if you are trying to remove dust but i found it strugling with cat hair and powder which is really annoying as i have to do it manually overall this is a great product and I recommend you buying it
Does the job - value for money
Generally moves along well. Basic machine with good suction . Easy to empty . Hose/tube does tend to pull apart sometimes as no locking mechanism to keep it together . Definitely as good as some dearer cleaners that I have owned . Would purchase same again as good for price. Model SL157C
It Does the job and is very Easy to clean. Perfect for my unit. Very light and great strength and sucking power. Probably the best vacuum that I have ever bought. Can’t go wrong and definitely recommend. Long cord length and just an all around perfect size for my apartment.
