The Miele Complete C2 Limited Edition canister vacuum is a favorite with owners.  It gets very good ratings and comments and is a great fit for homes with bare floors, low pile carpet and some area rugs.  The machine is not such a good fit for those with deeper pile carpet.  It is a quiet, well built vacuum with variable suction and an auto-rewind power cord.  However genuine Miele bags are not cheap and some folks feel that the power cord is too short resulting in the need to frequently plug and unplug the vacuum when moving from one area to another.


Avg. consumer rating = 89/100 

The Oreck XL Classic Limited Edition (UK2200) upright vacuum cleaner is getting pretty solid reviews and ratings from owners.  This bagged, “no frills” machine is very lightweight and easy to move and maneuver.  It is also reasonably priced and it performs well on carpet and bare floors.  However there is no hose and no tools or attachments, and some folks struggle with moving it on deeper pile carpet.  In addition, the power cord is also a little on the short side.


Avg. consumer rating = 81/100 

The Bissell Zing 1668 is a small, bagged canister vacuum.  It is lightweight, compact and easy to carry.  It is designed for bare floors, rugs and carpet but performance on carpet isn’t particularly good as the floor nozzle does not have a brushroll.  It does perform fairly well on bare surfaces however and the unit is very affordable at well under $100.  This vacuum is very similar to the Bissell Zing 4122, and we believe it is actually the replacement for the 4122.


 Avg. consumer rating = 69/100 

This is a rather futuristic-looking bagged canister vacuum cleaner designed for both bare floors and carpet.  It is fairly quiet and it has strong suction, a retractable power cord, two cleaning heads, and suction controls.  It is also equipped with HEPA-level filtration.  However, consumer comments and ratings to date are not particularly encouraging.  The ergonomics seem lacking and owners often complain of awkward features and tools that do not perform as well as expected.

 

 


Avg. consumer rating = 94/100 

The SEBO Airbelt D4 canister vacuum cleaner is made in Germany and while on the heavy side, it is a solid and durable machine.  Consumer ratings a very good and owners praise the vacuum for its exceptionally long cleaning reach, quiet operation, strong suction and cleaning ability on all manner of flooring.  This is also a bagged machine and the bags are nice and large.  The D4 is not cheap however and it will set you back over $900.

We’'ve looked at several Oreck upright vacuums in the past and we’'ve run into some pretty good machines - some even made our list of best upright vacuums.  So we wanted to see what Oreck was doing with respect to canister vacuums.  The Oreck Quest MC1000 is unfortunately quite underwhelming.  Consumer ratings are low and many owners feel the machine is cheaply made and not well designed.


Avg. consumer rating = 94/100 

The Miele Complete C3 Cat & Dog Canister Vacuum Cleaner gets excellent ratings and reviews from owners.  It is also an attractive, well-built machine.  Consumers praise the unit’s quiet operation, ability to pick up pet hair, strong suction and robust filtration features.  It also comes with separate cleaner heads for carpet and bare floors, and the carpet tool is motorized so it is capable on low, medium and high pile carpet.  This is an expensive vacuum cleaner however and at most retail outlets it will set you back over $900.  


 

Avg. consumer rating = 96/100 

The Alize is a fantastic canister vacuum but it is important to understand what you are buying before you purchase.  Miele makes a wide range of canister vacuums each with a host of different features and attachments.  The Alize is a great machine for cleaning smooth surfaces like hardwood floors, tile or vinyl.  It is also effective on flat weave rugs and low pile carpet.  However – with its existing set of attachments – it may not be the best choice for homes with lots of carpet (especially medium to deep pile carpet). 


Avg. consumer rating = 82/100 

The Oreck Commercial BB900DGR XL Pro 5 is a compact, bagged canister vacuum that is meant to be carried.  The machine is well liked for its over-the-shoulder carry strap, light weight, host of cleaning tools, lengthy cleaning reach, and solid suction.  However, some folks have issues with the unit’s short, somewhat inflexible hose and the loose fit between the hose and the extension wand.  Some owners really love this vacuum while others are not impressed.  Overall consumer ratings are fairly average.


 

Avg. consumer rating = 92/100 

Let’'s cut to the chase.  The Miele S6270 Quartz is a great vacuum IF you have lots of bare floors to clean and a few area rugs or a small amount of low pile carpet.  It is not the best machine for a home or apartment with lots of carpet - especially medium to high pile carpet.  The floor tool has no brushbar which limits its performance on deeper carpet.  Aside from this the Quartz is lightweight, very quiet and powerful. It also has effective filtration, variable suction and is well built.


Avg. consumer rating = 93/100 

The Sebo X4 is a bagged upright vacuum cleaner designed and manufactured in Germany.  It has hospital-grade filtration and is approved by the British Allergy Foundation. It is well-built and reliable but expensive.  The X4 is noted for being powerful, capable on both carpet and bare floors and excellent at pulling up pet hair.  It is a tad on the heavy side however and the machine, while highly effective, looks a bit dated.


 

Avg. consumer rating = 88/100 

The Bissell Zing bagged canister vacuum (model 4122) is a fairly simple machine and it doesn'’t come with a lot of frills and features.  It is also very inexpensive at around $50.  Owners are giving it great reviews and feel that it is lightweight, maneuverable and easy to store.  It is a good fit for a smaller home or apartment but it performs better on bare floors than carpet.


 

Avg. consumer rating = 92/100 

This is a no-frills upright vacuum designed to clean large areas of both carpet and bare floors.  It is a commercial unit but is frequently used by owners for residential cleaning as well.  It is very lightweight and quite powerful.  In addition the U2000R-1 has an ”industrial” length 40 foot power cord, but like many commercial machines it is loud.  Most owners feel the vacuum provides very good value for your dollar.


 Avg. consumer rating = 94/100 

The Miele S2121 Delphi canister vacuum is designed for bare floors and low-to-medium pile carpet.  It has recently been renamed to the "Miele Classic C1 Delphi Canister Vacuum Cleaner".  It is now blue in color but otherwise the same machine. It has variable suction as well as a host of other features. In addition, high consumer ratings suggest that it is indeed well-liked by its owners. The vacuum is also quiet, lightweight and not too large. However, it does not come with a specialized bare floor tool (like it’s more expensive brother, the Titan) and some owners feel this is a drawback.


 Avg. consumer rating = 94/100 

The Miele Capri is the latest addition to the popular S2 series of canister vacuum cleaners.  It is a step up from the more affordable Olympus as it has both carpet and bare floor tools (as opposed to a combination tool) and it gets very good grades from consumers.  Owners praise its powerful suction and also like that it is lightweight and quiet.  However like all of the machines in the S2 series the power cord is a little short. (2016 Update: This is now called the Classic C1 Capri and ratings are still top-notch.)


 

Avg. consumer rating = 83/100 

The Oreck Magnesium gets fair reviews.  On average it does not rank as highly with consumers as some of Oreck'’s XL units however.  The Magnesium is well-liked for its extreme light weight, powerful suction and easy maneuverability.  Detractors point out the need for frequent maintenance, noisy operation, and the unit’s inability to get into tight areas.


Avg. consumer rating = 85/100 

Designed for 20 years of residential use, the Miele Jazz (recently renamed the Miele Dynamic U1 Jazz) gets very solid ratings from consumers. Like most machines from this German manufacturer the Jazz is expensive, but it does deliver. Powered by a 1200 watt ultra quiet motor, it has very strong suction and does an excellent job cleaning carpet and bare floors. It also includes 3 levels of filtration and the HEPA filter with activated charcoal ensures fresh smelling air free of most allergens. Some consumers find the machine a bit heavy however and consumables like bags and filters are not cheap.


 

Avg. consumer rating = 91/100 

The Oreck XL 2100RHS is an upright that is getting good owner reviews and if you like no-frills machines that deliver then this one is worth looking at.  Consumer ratings are excellent and the vacuum is extremely lightweight, easy to maneuver, and it comes with a very long industrial power cord.  We’re not sure how much longer we will see this unit on the market however, as it can no longer be found on the Oreck website – but perhaps appearance on the website is not indicative of product continuity.


 

Avg. consumer rating = 89/100 

The Oreck Insight upright vacuum (model U7010ECS) gets very solid ratings from owners and is noted for being exceptionally lightweight and powerful.  It is a bare bones machine however and while it includes HEPA filtration it comes with little else.  It is bagged and performs well on low pile carpet and bare floors but is difficult to push on deep pile carpet.


 

Avg. consumer rating = 83/100 

The Miele Quickstep S194 is Miele’'s latest stick vacuum and while consumer ratings are few, those that are available indicate a respectable level of satisfaction.  Owners praise the Quickstep'’s power, quiet operation and ability to pull up pet hair.  Some do find the vacuum a bit on the heavy side however.  It should also be noted that this stick vacuum is best for hard floors and low pile carpet.  Like most stick vacs it is not intended for deep pile or plush carpet cleaning.


Avg. consumer rating = 83/100 


Eureka now has over 10 different AirSpeed models on the market.  Consumer ratings for the Eureka AirSpeed AS1051A are not bad, but not stellar - owners like that the machine is light, powerful, and maneuverable but some find it a bit loud.  The AS1051A is formally known as the AirSpeed ABS (Advanced Bag System) PET AS1051A and it has a few features that make it popular with pet owners.  The vacuum includes a pet hair brush, a pet hair tool (PET Power Paw) and a HEPA filter with charcoal to remove allergens and help eliminate odors.


 Avg. consumer rating = 83/100 

The Miele S7580 Bolero is now known as the Dynamic U1 AutoEco (Miele's new name for this machine).  It is one of the Premium Class vacuums in the S7 upright series.  It is powerful, quiet, maneuverable and loaded with features such as suction control, automatic height adjustment and a special HEPA filter that includes activated carbon for odor removal.  Consumer reviews are few but generally quite good and most owners are pleased with their purchase.  The machine is a little heavy however and, like many Miele vacuum cleaners, it is not cheap.


Avg. consumer rating = 83/100 


The Electrolux Ergospace Green gets fairly good reviews and is lightweight, easy to maneuver and very quiet.  It works well on hardwood floors and is environmentally friendly being made in part of recycled plastic.  The vacuum is also packed in unbleached recycled cardboard. The brushbar is air-driven however and while the Ergospace is effective on bare floors some owners report that it does not excel on carpet.


 

Avg. consumer rating = 84/100 

This is the next generation of the OptiFlow vacuum from Panasonic and most consumers like it.  This unit gets better consumer ratings than the previous model.  Owners report that the new OptiFlow has good suction, attachments that work well, and that it is very easy to switch from bare floors to carpet mode.  Some folks feel that it is a little heavy however and that the edge cleaning ability is limited.

 

 


Avg. consumer rating = 89/100 

The Red Velvet (model S6270) is part of Miele'’s latest series of canister vacuum cleaners, the S6 series.  The Red Velvet is rather unique with its soft red velvet finish on the canister surface.  The vacuum is best suited for smooth flooring and low pile carpet as the brushes in the nozzle are air-driven.  It also includes an AirClean filter, several attachments, a stainless steel telescopic wand, suction controls and a 7-year warranty on the motor and vacuum casing.  Consumer ratings, while few, are very good.


 

Avg. consumer rating = 92/100 

The Miele Callisto is part of the Miele S5 series of vacuums.  The S5 series are Miele'’s higher-end canister vacuums, with the S4 and S2 series being typically more affordable.  The Callisto has been around for some time and is now paired with the new SEB228 Heavy Duty Powerhead (for both high and low-pile carpet) and the SBB300-3 Parquet Floor Brush (for bare floor cleaning).  This canister vacuum gets very good consumer ratings and is said to be powerful yet still quiet.


Avg. consumer rating = 84/100 


This bagged upright is getting fairly good consumer ratings.  At the time of this writing, for example, some 65% of the Amazon customer reviews have given the Hoover C1404 5 stars out of 5.  However, it is important to understand what you are getting in this machine.  It is a no frills, very basic and somewhat loud commercial vacuum cleaner.  But for the consumer looking for a bare bones unit that simply does what it is supposed to do, it would appear this one delivers.  It is also popular with both commercial and residential users alike.


Avg. consumer rating = 61/100 

The Eureka C5712A is a commercial vacuum and like most commercial machines it does not come with a lot of fancy features, although this one does have a few tools and it uses a sealed HEPA filtration system.  It is recommended for UL-listed commercial or heavy-duty residential use.  Ratings and comments for this unit are not easy to come by but those that exist don't seem particularly favorable.


 

Avg. consumer rating = 83/100 

The consumer ratings and comments for the Panasonic MC-CG902 Canister Vacuum Cleaner indicate a fairly high level of consumer satisfaction.  This vacuum was also recently given a best buy rating from a popular consumer magazine.  Folks that use this machine like the quality attachments, retractable power cord and the fact that it is good on hard surfaces however some lament that it does not come with a handheld turbine attachment for cleaning pet hair from stairs or upholstery.


 

Avg. consumer rating = 85/100 

The Electrolux EL6984A UltraSilencer is a lightweight and extremely quiet bagged canister vacuum cleaner.  It gets top grades from consumers for it’s ability to clean hard surfaces (wood, tile, lino, etc) and for its quiet operation, but seems to fall a little short when cleaning carpet (in particular deep-pile carpet).


Avg. consumer rating = 66/100 


On paper the Electrolux Ultra Silencer EL7060A sounds impressive.  It comes with many features including a sealed HEPA system, suction control, automatic cord rewind and a 5-year warranty.  It also has powerful suction, is lightweight and is very quiet.  With all of these qualities one would expect this Electrolux canister vacuum to get great consumer ratings – but ratings are lackluster.  Owners allude to a number of issues and while some do like the machine there are a sufficient number of low ratings to make one take notice.


 Avg. consumer rating = 81/100 

With a score of 81/100 from consumers the Miele Neptune stands out as a good example of a solid canister vacuum.  The Miele Neptune is lightweight, compact and powerful.  It is not a machine however for deep pile carpet but it excels when applied to low or medium-pile carpeting, area rugs and smooth flooring.


 

Avg. consumer rating = 75/100 

Ratings for the Hoover UH30600 used to be very high but they have dropped in the past few years.  Consumer ratings are now somewhat average. The UH30600 is a bagged upright designed for both carpet and bare floors.  It has HEPA filtration, a long power cord, a range of on-board tools, and seven different height settings.  Owners feel that it has outstanding suction and that it is not too expensive (about $150 at certain outlets).  Some consumers find it a bit heavy however.


 Avg. consumer rating = 75/100 

The Miele Cat and Dog S7260 (now known as the Miele Dynamic U1 Cat & Dog) is part of Miele'’s S7 line of upright vacuum cleaners.  The Cat and Dog gets reasonable consumer ratings and is loaded with features.  Owners like the the look and feel of the unit with many commenting on the quality fit and finish. It has powerful suction yet still manages to be fairly quiet and is capable on both carpet and bare floors. It is also very effective at pulling up pet hair. The downsides of this machine are its weight, its cost, and, more recently, increasing problems over the lifetime of the vacuum.


Avg. consumer rating = 83/100 


The Hoover WindTunnel T-Series Pet Upright Vacuum (model UH30310) is a bagged upright that comes with a few extra tools for vacuuming up pet hair.  Consumers report that this machine is indeed very good at picking up pet hair, and they also like the long power cord, the light weight and the fact that it is not too expensive.  However some folks wish that the vacuum came with more than one wand and it does have a lot of plastic in its construction.


Avg. consumer rating = 78/100 

The Miele S4212 Polaris canister vacuum gets average grades from consumers.  It is the least expensive of the Miele S4 series of canisters and is recommended for short-pile carpet, area rugs and hard surface floors.  Consumers like the Polaris'’ light weight, variable suction and extremely quiet operation.  On the downside the power cord is a little short.


Avg. consumer rating = 91/100 

Like many of its canister brothers the Miele Olympus vacuum cleaner (recently renamed to the Miele Classic C1 Olympus vacuum cleaner) receives high grades from consumers.  Owners praise the vacuum for its powerful suction yet quiet operation.  It is also very effective on bare floors. However if this unit has a weakness it is likely its limited cleaning ability on carpet.  On very low-pile carpet it is ok, but it struggles with anything deeper than this.


 Avg. consumer rating = 88/100 


The Miele Leo is powerful, lightweight and quiet - a tough combination to beat.  It is part of the S5 series of vacuums which are Miele'’s high-end machines and they come with a host of features and options.  Consumer ratings are not widely available for this vacuum but those found indicate a high level of satisfaction.


Avg. consumer rating = 84/100 

The Hoover WindTunnel T-Series UH30300 is not fancy but it is light, has powerful suction, is easy to maintain and is also very reasonably priced.  The general owner consensus is that this machine is fairly good value for the money.  There are some comments however that the vacuum is a bit loud and that too much plastic is used in the construction.


Avg. consumer rating = 70/100 

According to the Hoover.com website the Hoover UH50000 TurboPower WindTunnel Anniversary-Edition Upright Vacuum Cleaner is a Consumers Digest Best Buy.  However consumer ratings and reviews (from those who have bought and experienced the vacuum) are average at best.  The Hoover Windtunnel vacuums do seem to get a lot of repeat customers however, and this may show a certain level of satisfaction with the brand and products through the years.


Avg. consumer rating = 77/100 

The Eureka ReadyForce 900A is a very inexpensive canister vacuum (about 60USD on Amazon).  For the price it also gets reasonable consumer reviews.  Ratings for this unit used to be better but they have dropped in recent years.  If you have a lot of hard floors and are looking for something light, easy to maintain and not too loud then this could be a good choice.  However if your house has a lot of carpet you may want to consider other options.


Avg. consumer rating = 94/100 

If you want quality and don’t like to compromise then the Miele Capricorn may be the right vacuum cleaner for you.  It is made in Germany, has a life expectancy of some 20 years, and comes with many, many features.  The Miele S5981 Capricorn is the top end of the Miele Canister vacuum cleaners and, as expected, it also gets very good ratings from owners.  The downside of this machine is that it is expensive.


Avg. consumer rating = 64/100 


The Eureka Boss SmartVac Pet Lover 4870SZ is a bagged upright vacuum and has been rated as a Consumers Digest Best Buy.  However it is getting pretty average consumer reviews and some owners have highlighted a number of issues issues. The 4870SZ was created for households with pets, and as such comes with several pet-friendly features including odor-eating vacuum cleaner bags, a sealed system, and High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filtration.


Avg. consumer rating = 95/100 

Manufactured in Germany and new for 2010, the Miele S2 series of canister vacuums range in price from about 300USD for the Olympus to about 600USD for the Titan.  It can be a little confusing determining which S2 canister is the right one for your needs.  In this review we describe what the Miele Olympus, Miele Delphi and the Miele Titan have in common as well as where they differ.  Additionally we discover some of what consumers think of this relatively new Miele S2 vacuum cleaner series.


Avg. consumer rating = 85/100 


Very much a “no bells & whistles” bagged canister vacuum, the Eureka 3684F Pet Lover nevertheless gets good ratings and reviews from consumers.  It is also fairly inexpensive at around the 100USD level (at certain outlets).  Consumers like the fact that it is very lightweight, compact and good on hard surfaces, but point out that the short power cord and low quality vacuum hose are shortcomings.


 

Avg. consumer rating = 90/100 

Miele has been around for over one hundred years and they have been manufacturing vacuum cleaners since 1927.  The S2 series of canister vacuum cleaners is fairly recent and the top model in this group is the Miele S2180 Titan (Recently renamed to the Miele Classic C1 Titan).  The Titan gets good ratings from consumers and is capable of cleaning all manner of flooring from bare floors to low and medium pile carpet.


Avg. consumer rating = 79/100 

Miele have been manufacturing floor care products for 80 years and they are famous for making quality vacuum cleaners.  We've reviewed several of their canister vacuums and stick vacuums in the past and in most cases have found them to be solid products.  The S7210 Twist (now renamed the Miele Dynamic U1 Twist) is the first full-size Miele upright we have looked at, but it does not rate as highly as their canister machines.  It uses a powerful Miele-made vortex motor, has automatic height adjustment, a very long 39 foot power cord and also comes with variable suction control.


 Avg. consumer rating = 66/100 

The Miele S168 stick vacuum is the latest Miele stick vac and it is slightly more advanced (and more expensive) than the S163.   The suction on the S168 is fully variable and some consumers heap praise on this machine for its power and its ability to run very quietly.  On the downside, even though rather light for an upright, it is considered by many to be too heavy for a stick vacuum.


Avg. consumer rating = 83/100 

The Eureka Sanitaire SC3683A is considered a commercial vacuum but plenty of folks seem to be using it in their homes.  Consumers like the fact that it is small, light, powerful and HEPA ready, although there are some comments about it being better on hard surfaces than carpet.


Avg. consumer rating = 90/100 


The Hoover Commercial Portapower Vacuum, or Hoover CH30000 as it is also known, is fairly new to the market and is the replacement (new version) of the Hoover Portapower C2094.  This is a compact, portable vacuum with good suction and plenty of attachments.  It is also not too expensive.  Consumer reviews and comments on this vacuum indicate that it is a well-liked machine.  Also, the star ratings from virtually every source are very good.


Avg. consumer rating = 65/100 

The Hoover S3670 WindTunnel Bagged Canister vacuums gets good grades from some consumers and poor grades from others.  People like the vacuum'’s strong suction and stylish looks but are unhappy with its poorly designed hose and overly-plastic construction.


 

Avg. consumer rating = 87/100 

The Panasonic MC UG471 is a fairly basic machine that is not too expensive - between $100 and $150 at most stores.  But it does have most of what counts:  strong suction, HEPA filter, and a range of tools.  It is also noted to be reasonably quiet and very good on carpet (less-so on bare floors).  Consumers are giving it very good grades.


Avg. consumer rating = 73/100 

Like most Miele vacuum cleaners this one works very well but reviews are fairly average and it is also expensive. Having said that, it was recently rated by Consumers Digest as a Best Buy.  Owner ratings on this unit are limited, but those comments that can be found are good in some cases but poor in others.  The Miele S163 stick vacuum also comes with a Super Air Clean Filter and an optional HEPA filter, a level of air filtration not overly common with stick vacs.  It is recommended for low-pile carpeting and smooth floors.


 

Avg. consumer rating = 76/100 

Panasonic is a well known company providing modern appliances to households & businesses worldwide, but they are not particularly well-known for their vacuum cleaners. They do, however, have a fairly wide range of both household and commercial vacuums.  One of their popular canister vacuums is the Panasonic MC-CG885 OptiFlow Lightweight Bag Canister vacuum cleaner. 


Avg. consumer rating = 98/100 

There are two Miele S4212 vacuums - the S4212 Polaris and the S4212 Neptune.  The base model, the Miele S4212 Polaris is the replacement for the Miele S4210 Carina.   It should be noted that the S4212 Polaris is entirely the same vacuum with the same features as the S4210 Carina.  The only difference is the color - the Polaris is a light blue color (baby blue) while the Carina is a light yellow.  Like the S4210 Carina, the S4212 Polaris is the entry level Galaxy S4 series Miele canister vacuum, and like the Carina it is recommended for short-pile carpeting, area rugs and smooth flooring.


Avg. consumer rating = 70/100 

The Electrolux EL6988E Oxygen Canister Vacuum Cleaner is a lightweight, quiet, bagged vacuum.  This vacuum also comes with HEPA filtration and consumers do feel it is effective on most surfaces.  It is a little expensive however and some folks feel the bags are on the small side.


Avg. consumer rating = 92/100 

After a number of comments asking us to review the likes of Miele, Lindhaus and Sebo we have undertaken our first Miele review.  Were we impressed?  Well, yes actually.  We typically have reviewed some of the more moderately priced brands of vacuum cleaners and the three aforementioned can be a bit pricey, however the Miele S4210 (Carina version at least) can be found at some websites/stores for under 400 USD.  Not cheap but then again not over the top for a machine with fantastic reviews and a 7 year motor warranty (yes – 7 years).


Avg. consumer rating = 84/100 

Not to be confused with the similar looking 3670A, the Eureka 3670G Mighty Mite Canister vacuum cleaner is a bagged machine that gets fairly good consumer ratings, is lightweight, powerful and inexpensive.


 

Avg. consumer rating = 78/100 

The Electrolux EL6985B is an interesting approach to a vacuum cleaner (it is similar to the EL6984A), focusing on reducing the vacuum noise level. We wish this was an idea more vacuum cleaner manufacturers would consider.  Electrolux has clearly been successful in making the EL6985B quiet given consumer comments - but how does it stand up to the competition with respect to other key features?


 

Avg. consumer rating = 79/100 

The Hoover U6485-900 Windtunnel Anniversary Vacuum Cleaner is a self-propelled, bagged upright with HEPA filtration.  Many consumers are sold on the self-propelling feature and also report that their purchase was based on the vacuum getting top-notch reviews by a leading Consumer Reports magazine.


 Avg. consumer rating = 74/100 


The Electrolux EL5020A Intensity Upright is a powerful, lightweight, inexpensive vacuum cleaner.  Amazon’'s price of 108 bucks right now (as of this writing) seems like a pretty amazing deal - the Electrolux site posts an MSRP of 299.99USD. This is a bagged vacuum cleaner.  Some people like a bagged machine because they do not have to clean out a “dirt canister”.  However with a bagged machine you do have consumables – in the form of vacuum cleaner bags.  Some folks actually clean out the bags and re-use them.
