My review and perspective on model: SD40100 vacuum cleaner

This is the Dirt Devil FeatherLite Cyclonic Canister Vacuum Cleaner Review please check the reviews page for a comparison of other vacuum cleaners.

This is yet another vacuum cleaner like the Ovente Cyclonic Vacuum Cleaner or BISSELL Zing Canister Bagless Vacuum Cleaner with a very similar design, and same motor. I'm less of a fan of the Dirt Devil though, because as with most Dirt Devil products the plastic of the whole machine is much thinner and more brittle than that of other comparable machines. The price point of the Dirt Devil is right between that of the Ovente and the Bissell and for that price range what you get is a machine that has cheaper easily broken plastic, similar to but even more brittle than the Bissell, and more better attachments like the Ovente. If you're careful around your machine, the Dirt Devil might be right for you. If you have children, plan to use this in an RV or camper, live in a dorm room, you might want to check out the Ovente or Bissell as they're essentially the same machine, but a little hardier so they won't be destroyed so easily. This unit does come with a HEPA filter, which would be nice if it were constructed better it might make a difference. As it stands the extra restrictive filter only serves to reduce suction, and the less than amazing construction allows dirt to leak out elsewhere so the use of the HEPA filter is nearly nullified.

The SD40100 is a Residential vacuum designed for use in the Residential environment. I have reviewed it accordingly, the price point of the SD40100 is set for the Residential industry which should be taken into consideration when purchasing or thinking about purchasing this vacuum. Commercial vacuum cleaners may be built to last longer and endure more abuse, but are more expensive and may be lacking some of the luxuries (such as light weight, or low noise) that you are accustomed to. On the contrary Residential vacuums are made at lower price points, lower quality, but are often lighter and quieter to use.
