drinkd reviews Dirt Devil SD20005RED Scorpion Quick
Product works exactly as advertised. Vacuum is very powerful, and easily gets into tight areas thanks to the flip open crevice tool. Attachable hose is soft and pliable, and therefore does not put up fight when you are trying to maneuver it into small areas. Before purchasing, I read where several people complained that the unit is very loud when operating. For a hand-held vacuum that is SUPPOSED to provide powerful suction, how people could honestly expect that it would be extremely quiet is beyond me. I find the unit to operate at a normal volume for this type of an appliance. For the amount of suction it provides, the electric motor has to spin at a high RPM to achieve such good performance, and by doing so it creates a comparable amount of sound for the work it generates. If you want something quiet, buy a feather duster. If you want something that will help you get your cleaning jobs done, buy this product.
Because of the powerful suction created by the product, the electric motor is going to create some heat while operating. Therefore, expect to experience the normal electrically generated odor that is associated with the use of device like this. The odor does not mean there is anything wrong with the device, as this is considered a byproduct of regular operation.
The power cord is heavy duty, pleanty long, and easily wraps around the device and clips back to itself for storage.
There is one thing of importance to note. Since the unit is small and convenient in size, the dirt cup cannot hold a tremendous amount of debris. Its a good idea to clean out the dirt cup after each use, and to order an extra dirt filter with the purchase of this unit. I'm very satistied with my purchase of this product.
