Have the vacuum cleaner bought as a second unit, our primary FR is a Dyson. Now, when I see both together, I notice that the processing of the Dirt Devil is no worse than that of the Dyson. The suction power is not bad and the price is very good for this performance. Two things that I like the Dirt Devil is not so this is 1. The connection between the intake manifold and hose comes off as if you did not it put together firmly enough .2. The holder on the vacuum cleaner for the suction pipe also does not sufficiently stable from -but for the price I can only say super sucker !!!
