This is a vacuum cleaner for those who want versatility and good suction power, but aren’t ready to spend hundreds of dollars for a premium vacuum cleaner. Thanks to its unique detachable canister and included add-ons, it is easy to reach virtually any spot in the house.
Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Excellent value for money
At a price point below $120 it is extremely hard to find a matching competitor to this versatile, powerful, and highly adjustable vacuum cleaner. It's efficient in different cleaning scenarios and the suction power it offers is on par with more expensive units.
One of the most standout features of this vacuum is the possibility to detach the canister from the bottom part of the vacuum and just carry it around as a canister unit. This allows to reach and clean spots that would be hard or impossible to get to with a traditional upright cleaner. It comes in particularly handy when cleaning steep stairs or narrow places where it would be hard to maneuver with a full-sized vacuum.
Pro Swivel steering
Like more expensive Dyson upright cleaners, this one has a swiveling head to help you get around tight spots and under the furniture. It isn’t as good as on premium models, but still makes the job a lot easier.
Pro Keeps the air clean
This vacuum is equipped with a HEPA filtration system to keep the air free of allergens and dust particles. The foam filter protects the motor from large dust particles, and the HEPA filter filters the outflowing air from the vacuum, preventing allergens and microscopic dust going back in the air. This is important to allergen-sensitive people, and the air will feel overall fresher after cleaning.
Pro Clog-up protection
If the vacuum does clog-up, it will start to suck air through an emergency vent to prevent the motor from burning.
Pro Helpful accessories included
The vacuum ships together with four attachments: 2 crevice tools, a dusting brush, and a tool that helps removing pet hair.
Pro Bagless dustbin is easy to empty
There are no bags that you need to replace or clean out. Instead, the dust is collected in a bin that can be quickly emptied. It worth noting that that can create a large dust cloud for a moment.
Pro Adjustable suction power
It is possible to adjust the suction power with a valve on the handle. This can come in handy when you are, for example, dealing with small or high pile carpets.
Pro Fairly long power cord
The power cord is 25 ft. long, allowing to cover a wide area without the need to go from one outlet to another.
Pro Easy to carry around
Weighing only 12 pounds, this vacuum cleaner is easy to maneuver and carry around.
Pro Filters don't need to be replaced, just washed
The filters are washable and don’t need to be replaced, but you have to remember to wash them once every 1 or 3 months for optimum performance.
Con Not the best choice for pet owners
If it gets too much animal hair, it gets clogged up easily.
Con No LED headlight
There’s no light in front of the cleaner, which would be handy when cleaning under furniture.
Con Feels cheap
It isn't made from premium materials and that is very noticeable. Overall, the construction quality could be better.
Con No dustbin sensors
The vacuum will not warn you when it needs to be emptied. You have to keep an eye on that yourself.
Con Non-retractable power cord
The power cord doesn’t retract into the unit.
Con There is no height adjustment
You can’t change the height of the vacuum, so it will be hard to do things like cleaning high-pile rugs.
Con Has a plowing effect
The vacuum tends to push around larger debris instead of cleaning it up. This means a couple of extras passes are needed to get the floor completely clean.
