This is a rechargeable and cordless vacuum designed to clean multiple floor types. It has a detachable wand as well as a double-tiered, 15-cyclone array that works to suck up dust.
- Wand detachment makes it possible to use for handheld vacuuming
- Strong digital motor
- Very nice build quality
- Could use better battery capacity
- Regular suction is a little weak, especially compared to max suction setting
This $300 model is a very nice option for those who have had it with both cords and bags on their vacuum cleaners. Dyson’s V6 has surprisingly strong suction power and can really keep up with regular corded models—when it’s on the maximum suction setting, at least. The only problem is that keeping it at maximum suction power tends to drain the battery pretty quickly, so you won’t be using this one for any heavy-duty whole-household cleaning. For quick spot cleans, though, it does beautifully, even morphing into a handheld cleaner at your convenience. Just don’t expect it to be the solution for big cleaning jobs.
Dyson’s brand is synonymous with the best bagless vacuums and there are plenty of other good models to choose from, which are tailored to your particular needs. We review 3 of the latest models in this article.
This stainless steel and plastic cleaner has a translucent canister that lets you see all the dirt you’ve just sucked up from your floors. This 1200-1400W vacuum packs an automatic cord rewinder as well as a 1-year limited warranty.
- Powerful suction
- Dirt canister is easy to empty and clean
- Very inexpensive
- Power cord could be longer
This is a great buy at around $60. This Ovente vacuum sucks as though it were a model five times that price, so you won’t be stuck with a wimpy cleaner if you get this one. It also comes with a HEPA filter, so you know you’re getting quality filtration with the unit. The canister where dirt gets stored is a nice touch, too: it helps to be able to see the debris even before one empties the can, so you know when you’re nearing the limit. One does wish its power cord was longer for better maneuvering and that some of its attachments/heads were a bit smoother to use, but that’s really just nitpicking at this price point. This is a solid buy in the bargain category.
This lightweight upright makes use of reliable WindTunnel technology and multi-point height adjustment to deliver a consistent, easy cleaning experience. It has a bumper to prevent scuffs and a permanent HEPA filter.
- Very long cord with excellent automatic roll-up
- Powerful suction
- Quiet despite its power
- The brush roll cannot be shut off manually
This is another of the cheaper vacuums at just $100, but it definitely delivers when it comes to power. This is a strong vacuum despite the price and using it is generally a joy. It’s just too bad it has no switch for the brush roll, since that makes it a bit difficult for hardwood-floor owners; but other than that, it’s certainly a solid choice.
This vacuum is equipped with Airspeed Technology and a washable permanent filter for a more eco-friendly clean. It is also made specifically for deep-vacuuming of carpeted areas.
- Relatively light (8lbs) for its sturdy build
- Great for multi-floor places
- Easy maneuvering
- Could use more wand extensions
- A touch noisy
This is a great, cheap vacuum for only $60. It has powerful suction and such a nice build, one wouldn’t expect it for that price. Its lightness makes it a smooth machine to drive, too. The only really noteworthy problem is the sound: it’s not going to be the quietest vacuum you’ve ever owned. It’s not exactly ear-splitting, but it won’t be easy to use if you live in a place where noise is a no-no.
This cutting-edge vacuum cleaner offers both manual and automated (always-on) modes for convenience. The 1400-watt motor offers dual HEPA filtration for an effective clean.
- Convenient, always-on mode available
- Powerful motor
- Compact, tidy profile
- Removing dirt from the HEPA filters can be a bit troublesome
- Some minor hazards exist by leaving it always-on
The EVPRO-W is a great little machine. Before anything else, note that it’s not a regular vacuum cleaner, though: this isn’t something you push around the floor or table looking for crumbs. Rather, it’s best set on a corner of the floor and used in tandem with a simple broom. Simply sweep any dirt or debris towards it and turn it on so it can suck that up into its canister. Of course, if you have it on automatic mode instead, you won’t even need to prompt it to suck up the dirt—the infrared sensors detect it and turn the vacuum on automatically. It turns off automatically, too.
The EVPRO-W works well, has a great (but not overly loud) motor, and looks pretty nice, to boot. All in all, it’s one of the best canister vacuums you can get for around $120.
So which is the best buy bagless vacuum? The choice from our models reviewed here is split between the Hoover and the Ovente. Both are great, very affordable vacuum cleaners with nearly everything you could want in a bagless model.
Both have their good and bad points—although if you have hardwood floors, you may want to get the Ovente instead of the Hoover. Both offer stellar performance on other floor types, though.
