Rated 5 out of 5Â by Honeybuzz Great Suction
After years of using the Black and Decker red hand held vacuum it finally gave up. It was delightful to find they had now had a vacuum specifically for pets. I have two dogs and needed a new vacuum for use on the stairs.
Super powerful vacuum that has lived up to its reputation. The long cord allowed for maximum distance. The powerful suction lifted debree and fur off the carpet with ease. My carpet looked brand new again. I am very pleased with the vacuum's performance.
The one con is that the filter needs replacing every six months. Something I wasn't aware of at the time of purchase. I am not very excited about frequently purchasing a replacement part .

We have 3 silly, messy beagle boys and are constantly cleaning up dog hair and dirt by the hour. We have a terrific upright vac, but always hate dragging it out. The Dirt Devil Hand Vac is the solution! A dream come true! We literally use it everyday, sometimes 2 or 3 times a day. I keep it in a handy drawer and use it as needed to manage the pet hair, dirt, and dust. It works extremely well and the house and furniture stay so much cleaner now. I just wish it was a little easier to clean around the filter, but it's a minor glitch that I can live with. The hand vac is fun and simple to use. This is a great vac for anyone trying to win the war on pet hair, pet/kid dirt, and dust. A great gift idea too!

I bought my first model of this Dirt Devil for 4 short-haired cats and needed to pick up cat hair / scattered litter daily and my regular canister vacuum (although it was effective) was too much hassle to use every day. It worked great. Had to empty the dirt cup each time. I replaced this model with the same one several years later when my drooped it and broke the dirt cup, which was not in stock at that time. I'm still pleased. The dirt cup has since come back in stock so I bought one and gave the whole unit to a friend with 2 long-haired cats. She has to empty the cup more often, but it still works better than what she used to use: Â a sticky roller.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by Galesy Easy to handle
This dirt devil, has many good features, and is easy to handle. The biggest problem with it is the filter container, which fills way to fast, and the filter gets clogged fast. I have to stop every short while to empty the container, and clean off the filter which clogs up something awful and fast. Also the filter is very hard to clean, and have to use a toothpick to clean between all the ridges in it. This is a big nuisance. Otherwise it has good cleaning power and does a nice job!
