Summary: This lightweight, 14-pound bag-equipped Dirt Devil upright has HEPA filtration and an easy on/off switch. The model lacks a full-bag indicator, manual pile-height adjustment, and brush on/off switch. The 25-foot, manual-rewind cord is relatively short.

I received this vacuum as a gift. Normally I never buy Dirt Devils. I still will not buy one. I prefer Eureka or Kenmore. Dirt Devils are not good vacuums in general. Anyway, I'll check back and update again.

A month or less

No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
I bought this Featherlite for a rental property, where an expensive vacuum might disappear. Motor is powerful and reliable, but noisy. Good for carpets, but don't rely on hose attachments for long-term use. The plastic end of the hose cracked and hose will not stay attached to vacuum. Definitely not strong enough for use by teenagers.
