The Dirt Devil Featherlite SD40120 vacuum is a great and cheap alternative to other more expensive ones, as it works well according to most buyers. It has enough suction to work on several types of surfaces, and several users even thought it could compare with more expensive models. It is extremely lightweight as well, and therefore very easy to handle. However, despite these positive things, the vacuum seems to have a few serious flaws as well. The cord retraction mechanimsm is not powerful enough to retract the cord by itself, and sometimes it will just slowly retract the cord while the vacuum is plugged into the wall. The light weight and compact size also means that this vacuum is easy to pull around corners, but it will flip over just as easy, which some users found annoying. All in all it’s a great purchase for small homes or as a supplement to a bigger main vacuum, as it works great for spot cleaning as well.
