Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by PVEV Like my old one...almost
I purchased this about a month ago. All works as stated. However, there is NO retractable vacuum hose. You have to attach it to both the machine and the item to be vacuumed. You have to work a bit to make both connections workable unless you want to have to repeat. Also, their containers have a less sealable seal and the vacuum connection has a different connector. They give you a new coupler, but it is loose and you don't dare lose it! In spite of it's faults, I do recommend it.

I bought 2 of these to use as gifts for Christmas. One of them worked fine, the other didn't seal all the way across and have a heck of a time getting the machine to 'grab' it to seal. I figured Giftee didn't know how to use it and traded my 'good' model with her. BIG MISTAKE. One other problem, it wastes at least 1" of bag on each end. I have owned 2 different models and loved them, but I don't recommend model V3440 for anyone! Save your money and buy a different model.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by AFAL Automatic, who knew
When my last food saver bit the dust it was time for a new one. I use these a lot! The new one is automatic so when you put the bag into the slot it automatically starts the vacuum/seal process. I will say that it's OK but I really liked the old one better. This one is extremely noisy while vacuuming. Sounds like a freight train roaring thru.

I bought this a few weeks ago and I did not like it. I returned it for a refund.

I bought a cheaper model about 10 years ago and it never worked right. Is I bought a more expensive one hoping the other might have been a lemon. Nope. It doesn't work properly either. The vacuum MIGHT work one in 10 times. I'll never buy another Food Saver product. It was a waste of money.

I bought mine years ago and never really used it much. I'm a single guy. I'nm still single but figured I'd start using it.
Thing thing is great! I'm kicking myself for wasting so much food!
Mine came with a hose that doesn't go to anything and I wasn't even sure if it belonged with the appliance till I came here. It's hard to insert into its hole and doesn't really look like it belongs there! I guess it does according to the vids I've seen here.
My only other complaint is that it uses up too much of the bag and I feel like I'm wasting plastic. I wish the seal was set at a half inch instead of a full inch.
Other than that, the machine works great and I've not really had any issues with it!

We bought this at the end of March. Since then, we've vacuum sealed shrimp, scallops, steaks and some veggies. Upon removing them, we found they were just as fresh and new as when we bought them. Great product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JoZ1234 simple and convenient
I bought this model because it had most of the features I felt I needed. I couldn't be much happier. The extra bells and whistles just weren't necessary. Maybe in the future, I'll get one with those. But this one has enough. Auto seals, cuts & seals bags, marinates, has 2 speeds. One for regular sealing and one for softer foods. Has a hose inside for sealing bags with an attachments
