Summary:This bagless canister vacuum from Dirt Devil is equipped with suction control, manual pile-height adjustment, and HEPA filtration. The 23-pound vacuum comes with a full-bin indicator, an easy-to-reach power switch, and a brush on/off switch.
This 23-pound Dirt Devil bagless canister vacuum has a relatively short retractable cord at 18 feet and comes with an easy-to-reach power switch and a brush on/off switch for moving between carpeted and bare floors without scattering dust and debris. It also has manual pile-height adjustment, which gives you the option of changing the height of the vacuum to match your carpet's pile. The Dirt Devil Vision M082750 comes with suction control so that you can reduce the flow of air to clean lighter items such as curtains. The vacuum also sports a full-bin indicator to alert you when the bin ineeds to be emptied. Finally, it features HEPA filtration, which is designed to block fine particle emissions and can be particularly helpful for those with asthma or allergies.
About This Brand
Dirt Devil floor-care products focus on affordability and convenience. Part of TTI Floor Care, the Dirt Devil brand is available at a wide variety of discount stores and mass merchants, including Walmart, Target, and Kmart. Upright models typically range from $40 to $250. Some of the brand's upright vacuums are among the lighter models sold. Dirt Devil also makes canister vacuums, hand and stick models, deep cleaners, and central vacuums. Canister models typically range from $80 to $150. But uprights are clearly its focus, with many more models available.
Bag Denotes whether the model has a disposable bag. A growing number of vacuums, particularly upright models, use a container that can be emptied, eliminating the bag. To capture fine-dirt particles, however, these models must use a filter (such as a HEPA filter) that can need routine cleaning or replacement. Replacement filters tend to be significantly more expensive than bags. While vacuums with bags may also use filters, the bag acts as a prefilter that helps to keep the fine-dirt filter cleaner, thus extending its performance until cleaning or replacement. Another caveat: Emptying the dustbin and cleaning a filter can be messy, and handling it may expose you to dust and other allergens.
Weight (lbs.) Weight of the vacuum cleaner, to the nearest pound.
Brush on/off An on/off switch for the rotating brush lets you stop the brush from rotating when using tools or cleaning bare floors. This helps eliminate scattered dirt on bare floors and reduces the risk of injury if the vacuum tips over during use. It also reduces the risk of damaging a carpet or the finish of a bare floor if the vacuum sits in place at the low-height setting.
Easy on/off A switch that's located on the handle or where your foot can activate it is more convenient than one on the body of the vacuum.
Manual-pile adjust Lets you adjust the height of the machine to a carpet's pile height to allow for easy movement and thorough cleaning. Adjustments are automatic on some models, but we prefer the manual control afforded by some models.
I'm sorry but I disagree with the other buyers. This is a really good vacuum. It is easy to use and I like that I just have to turn off the beaterbar so I can do the hardwood floors and turn it back on for the carpets. First canister I have purchased in years.

One of the worst I have owned
Aside from being very noisy, it does an extremely poor job of cleaning carpets and area rugs. Pet hair, carpet thread, rug fuzz - all seem to lock up the brush and/or break the brush belt due to the poor design.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Noisy and unreliable
Hard to Clean
The Handle Realease Pedal is hard to use and gets broken easily. It is not sold as a part.<br />Cleaning the cone-shaped filter is a nuisance and it is expensive to buy.
