Clean the filters and roller every use for great suction
Great cheap product. You must empty the holder and ran the filters each time to maintain suction. Those commenting with poor function after a few months, check the manual, there's a filter clogged somewhere!

Worked fine for a few months. Just got worse...
Had this stick vac for just over a year. Worked great at first. Suction got worse even though it still sounds as if it has power. Now, it simply 'flicks' debris into the head. Once the vacuum is switched off, everything falls back out. This is a toy. Ok for dust and nothing else. I've read good reviews of this product but I guarantee, they'll change their rating in a few months.

Bought 2 of these (one blue and silver and a older grey and orange but there the same under the skin) and there both better than I expected. They do a great job on hard floors but only really clean carpets on max power. They have ok suctions but not a lot. The battery actually lasts along time enough to clean the house. The only real downfall is that the cyclone isn’t the best and the filter gets clogged up quite quickly also hair gets on the brushroll quite easily and you have to clean it often

We use it on tiled floors & carpet in three bedrooms in a fairly good sized 4 bedroom home and it performs very well. Because of its slimline design the filter requires regular cleaning which is easy & simple otherwise a top performer. The battery lasts quite well & throughout the time we've had it which is around a year and a half is still perfect. We don't understand why some people pay so much for their stick vacs when this was only $99 ! We used a relative's one which cost over a thousand dollars! It was terrible and hard to use. How much profit margin do these rip offs make? I highly recommend this 'anko' stick vac.

We bought this cordless vac mainly just for the occasional small mess on the carpet or tiles. We have since upgraded to the Dyson V11, which is fantastic for all kinds of cleaning with a vac. I am now using the K-Mart home & co vac in the garage and it works great on the old carpet I have on the floor, as well as on the concrete and cleaning up messes on the work bench. The secret to keeping it running well is to make sure it's kept clean, including the filter for the best suction. I also found that the brush on the head is removable for easier cleaning and that there's a cap on the end of it that needs to be taken off and cleaned, due to hair build up around it.

Was so excited for this product but fills up very quick and barely any suction- I have to go over floors 4-6 times and empty fairly often. At the price I hoped for more than what seems to be a toy vacuum

Suction is bad
Worked great when i first purchased it. Have had it for a few months now and the suction is so bad. I've vacuumed on my carpet and tiles and it'll pick up some dirt/dust but not all of it. I end up going over it several times. I even have to pull out the broom and dustpan because the suction is so bad. Little crumbs get stuck in the rotating head so i end up having to shake it out over the bin. I clean it out often but that doesnt do much difference. Not worth the money. I'm now on the lookout for a new vacuum.

Perfection only lasts a few weeks
I purchased this and instantly fell in love, but the more I used it the worse it got! No matter how much I clean it out, the suction just keeps getting worse and worse!
I don’t have pets and I’m not a dirty person so it’s not like it has mass amounts to pick up, yet it just doesn’t seem to be able to cut it.
I use it on carpet, tiles in the bathroom and vinyl Lino in the kitchen, it works well on all 3 surfaces, however as I said the suction isn’t anything to rave about.

This sucks (not)
This vacuum is used on Tiles, carpet, floorboards. It does not work well on any surface. It has been a disappointing buy to say the least. Would not recommend this vacuum to anyone. Have actually considered using it as a blower instead. Might make a good toy to go along with the kids plastic mowers.

I bought this vacuum last year, it wasn't too bad, did the work of cleaning ,only problem was the brush in front where hairs get tangled and they were a mess to clean. It was very very difficult to clean this vacuum.

Great, lightweight cordless vacuum
This vacuum gives a lot more than it looks. Has 2 settings for suction and very easy to empty and clean. Fantastic value for the work that it does in your home.

The reviewer stated that an incentive was offered for this review
I bought this vac to use on our small area of carpet ( 4m x 4m and a couple of rugs) as I didn't want to be constantly dragging out the heavier vac. With the first use, I found it did the job and was so light and easy to use! Then, after just a few uses, the suction was horrible and the pipe part was clogging constantly down close to the cleaning head - it didn't even get the dirt up to the collection container very often! Was pretty useless on any other surface, too (though I only tried occasionally). Now, there are only two semi-retired pe...rsons in our house with only a small area of carpet and the rest floor boards. We do not have any pets and we're not particularly messy so to have the vac not do it's job (couldn't even pick up cake crumbs after the grandies were here) was very annoying. Not only that, it now constantly spits everything back out after about 5 minutes of cleaning! (and yes, I DO clean/empty EVERY part of the machine EVERY time I use it - and that seems a bit like overkill). Very disappointed but in the end, I suppose you get what you pay for. :(

You get what you pay for
Works well for the first couple of months but then the suction gets worse and worse. Definitely in this case not a good buy. Targets version of the stick vacuum works much much better
Unsuccessful attempt to copy a Dyson Cordless Vacuum Stick
At first glance this unit looks great and is close to a replica of an older Dyson Cordless Vacuum Stick.
It is well made and ticks all the boxes......Easy to assemble and disassmeble, turbo brush head that is easy to clean, cyclonic technology etc.
But alas its just a case of good looks only.
As far as performance goes its a dismal failure.
Its suction power is low and rather ineffective.
If often fails to collect visible surface dust on carpet even after a couple of passes and thats on the high setting and moving very slowly which you nee...

I wanted to like this one - I really did
Got this one to deal with kitty litter spills in the bathroom but unfortunately the messy moggy has won this round - this unit is not up to the task of vaccuming kitty litter and once it's switched off, all the litter comes sliding back out of the pipe......zero suction even at the highest battery sucking setting - sorry kmart, this one is a thumbs down
Purchased in March 2019 at Kmart.
Used on tiled floor. Very good performance, would definitely recommend this product. Very light and easy to use. Try it you won't be disappointed. Kmart offers great appliances for reasonable prices.
The only star I can give is for battery life. Unfortunately the suction is non-existent.
We use this on our entry tiles, kitchen tiles and hallway carpet, and have never exhausted the battery before exhausting our patience. It simply does not pickup anything. Zero suction whatsoever. It does not pickup food crumbs, small pieces of plastic, dust particles, dirt particles, hair or anything else we have ever tried to vacuum. That this can be sold in the vacuum cleaners section is absurd. It would be more appropriate with the brooms as all it does is collect the particles in the bottom of the cleaner and then deposit them in a pile whe...rever you turn it off. It sounds like a great bit of gear with a noisy, high powered motor and a good battery but it does not live up to the title vacuum in any sense of the word. Highly exhausting and frustrating experience trying to vacuum for 25 mins with this! As I said, we put this thing down in sheer annoyance before exhausting the battery, every single time.

Basic and Functional but Lacks Power
I use this only on tiles for quick cleanups after kids breakfast etc and have tried in a rug but it just doesn't have the power to pick up on carpet. It would be ideal for a holiday home. It's compact, light, has good maneuverability, easy easy to empty and charge and can convert to a small hand held with attachments for dusting and blinds. I wouldn't recommend it for everyday use though. I have to drag out the proper vacuum to do all the floors properly. It's budget friendly but lacks any real oomph.
