Not that impressed, but decent product This vacuum is very stylish and appeals to the eye however, it is not extremely powerful even when fully charged. It does get the job done but takes longer because of the lack of power. I use it several times a week to vacuum out my car and it gets the job done. ...more info
Amazing product Amazing product. Works so well and looks even better. Something you want people to see. The light is just enough so glow in the kitchen at night. People will want to check it out. Works as amazing as all the other dirt devil products. I have 2! ...more info
Very Happy Bought this not expecting much from past experiences with portable vacuums. Once I plugged it in and charged it up it worked wonderfully. It does a great job cleaning up little messes. I was amazed at the trash in picked up. Heavy Duty and serves as a cool night light....more info
Incognito handheld vacuum.. This handheld vacuum is great. It does its purpose and looks nice. I bought it to pick up pet hair from my laminate floor and it does a great job at that. The suction is pretty strong. It is a little loud though.. but I guess vacuums are. The base of the white one lights up. I personally would prefer if it didn't light up.. but whatevers. no biggie. HOwever, the other colors don't light up. The handheld is a little heavy, but it's not too bad. Overall, I would recommend it to others....more info
Good design- terrible function. I am a designer and was really taken by the simple elegant design of this vacuum cleaner... its nicely made and looks good lying around the house. But when it comes to function, its fails completely... pretty much all the dust i have tried to pick up with this vacuum cleaner stayed put and its also extremely noisy. If it was not so cheap I would have returned it........more info
cute little thing I just bought this - I do like it a lot. The best thing about it is the lack of cord, that it is lightweight, and pretty cute as vacuums go!
After reading the reviews here I was surprised by three things: (1) it is not as loud as I expected - there are much louder hand-helds; (2) the one I got which was the only one the store had in stock was chrome-ish color ("champaign," maybe), and certainly does have the little light feature. It shows up like magic from the internal space of the upper cone when you plug it in (neat)! (3) unfortunately, it is not as powerful as I was expecting.
Other disadvantages: it does need frequent emptying (especially if you've got a shedding dog), but this takes half a second. And it does blow away the stuff you are trying to vacuum up to some degree (a complaint I saw in the other-color reviews).
The best: it is so easy to just pick up/turn on/suck up some dog hair or little messes, and for vacuuming stairs, that I am way cleaner than my normal lazy self has previously allowed! Worth it if your expectations are moderate. ...more info
Great vac! This is a GREAT hand vac, especially for the price Amazon offers it. My only complaint is that Dirt Devil doesn't make the Kone available with the nightlight feature in any other color... and that isn't Amazon's fault....more info
Nifty little machine I was skeptical at first based on looks - it is an odd looking vacuum cleaner. But looks aren't everything, and this cleaner really works well. It is a little noisy, but its suction matches its growl. The base makes a great nightlight and also makes the vacuum readily accessible on something you don't mind leaving out in plain sight. Cleaning the filter is easy. Overall, I would say that this is the best handheld we have purchased since the demise of our old original Dustbuster from Black & Decker....more info
very happy gift recipient This was given as a gift and the recipient loves it -handy, light weight and effective...more info
a piece of art i first saw the white kone vacuum at sharper image in 2006. i bought one for my best friend (who LOVED it) but resisted getting one for myself b/c i didn't really need it. i wanted to buy it purely because of the beauty and design of the product (and i love karim rashid).
when i got a kitten, i realized that i needed a hand vac to prevent kitty litter from being tracked every where in the house. i searched sharper image and was so disheartened when i found out they didn't carry it anymore. well, i found it here on amazon and bought it immediately. the on/off button is also white and sits on the top of the kone. also, you have to seat the handheld correctly on the stand (bottom half of the kone) or it won't light up. this is a good added feature. i love the simple, sculptural design and i love that it lights up. i keep it in the kitty's room and sometimes she is confined to her room at night. i like that the product provides some light for her at night.
incidentally, the product works great. i've owned it for 2 months now and use it almost on a daily basis. it picks up stray litter, cat hair, and kitten kibble off my polished concrete floors. it is quite loud, and although it alarmed her at first, she has gotten use to the whirring sound....more info
Great looking Vacuum! The product not only looks great, but it works great too! It looks great while it is charging....more info
Get a little glow in your vac! The colors other than white don't light up. So, if you want that, get the white one.
I just got one of these (in white, natch). My wife was mad because she remembers the old B&D rechargeable vacs that hardly worked at all. Me too. this isn't that. It works.
It is loud, though. I guess power comes with noise, and this is both (powerful and loud). Unlike the rechargeable vacs of old, though, this is actually worth having.
The white one (with the light), makes a very good nightlight. Looks like white LEDs in the base, that turn off when the vac is removed.
Elegant design, does double-duty as a nightlight, and works very well as a vac.
What has TAKEN so long?!?!?! I bought a friend one of these for Christmas in '06. About that time, our baby Lab has grown UP and she sheds a LOT!! So I called my friend and ask her how her Kone was doing. She said "DO not hesitate-buy one today, you'll be glad you did!" So I ordered one and I LOVE this thing! Like others here, I have found I don't have to drag around that wet/dry vac, getting up this dog/cat hair. Just go get the Kone.
RUN....don't walk and don't hesitate getting one. Sure the filter needs cleaning everytime, but it's worth it. The Kone doesn't weigh much and it has the cushioned end on it so it won't mar things up. A+A+A+A+A+A+A+A+!!!!...more info
Kone Rocks! The Kone is contemporary looking, but is a terrific vacuum. I use it to clean up hair on the bathroom floor and the mess the dogs leave when they eat. Kone gets it all!
My only complaint is that the filter is small so I have found that it needs to be emptied after nearly every use. Hopefully there are replacement filters available for purchase....more info
Suits the need perfectly I wanted this device for a rather interesting, but still annoying little problem. It seems my husband is losing his hair at a pace that I cannot keep up with, particularly in our bathroom, where the flooring is white and very obvious when speckled with hair. The Kone sits on the edge of the tub and is ready to go at any time!!!! I no longer procrastinate dragging the vacuum out just to suck up a few hairs!!!! It was the perfect solution for a problem that has been bugging me for a very long time!...more info
Kool vac This hand vac looks good and actually works quite well. I charge it and then unplug it. It stays charged for several days. I disliked all the other vacs I had because they were ugly and did not pick up well. They were just handy. This one looks sleek in the new kitchen. I just might buy another for the upstairs!...more info
"Smart" Design I got this vacuum as a christmas present and it is very powerful. It is lightweight too. I've owned other dustbusters by far this one is the best.I give the DirtDevil 6 stars....more info
