This bagged canister vacuum from kenmore truly is magic. I have no problem using this vacuum for any of my cleaning needs. I would have to say the things i like most about this vacuum is it is compact, it is bagged, and the power switch is right on the handle where you put your hand for easy access. The bags for this vacuum are actually pretty cheap and the last longer than you would think. It is compact with a small cleaner head so you can get into and store it in tigh places unlike other vacuum cleaners that are made for daily vacuuming. It is also relatively quiet so it should be no problem running it when other people in your home are watching tv or sleeping. This vacuum also has five different speed setting which are controlled with the power switch so you can clean anything anywhere. Maneuverability I love the fact that unlike other canister vacuums this one does not get stuck on bumps it just goes right over them, and unlike other canisters it does not run into corners or walls it goes around them and furniture with ease. Ease of Maintenance There is only one step to maintaining this vacuum and that is when the bag check indicator shows red change the bag and get back to cleaning. The good think about the bag is no massy filters and when you empty the vacuum all the dust stays contained in the bag and does not escape back into the air. Suction Performance It has about twice the suction of any dyson. Versatility This vacuum can clean anything anywhere this makes it a wonderful vacuum when it come to versitility and above floor or stair cleaning. Durability It would take a bull doesn't to break this monster.
