Electrolux canister vacuum


I have always had a kenmore canister vacuum and loved it. When it finally got worn out my husband went out and bought me the Electrolux canister vac. It is a great vacuum. I love how well it picks up and I love using the attachments on my kitchen and...

Great power, easy to manuver.


Love it overall!  Great power, especially with the power head.  I like the light on the power head and also the retractable cord makes it easy to put away without a long cord to coil up and stow.  It is quite a bit quieter than other vacuums I have had...

Best vacuum since the Electrolux gold Super J back in the 70's!


I have a dog, so the first bag I removed from my vacuum was full of my dog's hair.  It does a super job and is so light to carry and so very quiet, too.  I love it; it cleans better than any other vacuum I have had since my 70's gold Electrolux Super...

Great little vacuum cleaner


So far I really like my new Electrolux.  I like that the head swivels making it easy to steer, and it is almost like it is self-propelled.  It keeps all the dust inside.  Suggestions I would have for the company would be for a little heavier hose and...

If you are looking for a superb vacuum cleaner, then this is it!


I have been through a lot of vacuum cleaners and I don't know why.  I have bought wind tunnel (I'll never buy that one again) and several others and they just don't do the job and then they break.

Excellent Vacuum - Well Built, Great Suction and Quiet


Great vacuum. I did a thorough comparison with other vacuums available at retail department stores and this one came out on top at its price point. This vacuums suction is comparable to the Dyson DC28 but is far less noisy, easier to use and in my...

MUCH better than prior models. Excellent vacuum.


I owned a prior version Oxygen (from 2007 I think) and swore I'd never buy another Electrolux. Found out after I bought it, of all the terible reviews, however it had excellent suction. It died with multiple failures in slightly past the first year (I...

Quiet, efficient vacuum.


When my back problems got worse I had to get rid of the heavy upright vacuum I had been using (plus it was old and in need of replacement anyway).  This is my first canister vacuum and I must say I am pretty impressed.  It is very quiet.  You can have...

Fantastic vacuum! Superior for hardwood and for homes with pets.


I exchanged my top of the line Kenmore canister in this weekend for this Electrolux.   What a huge improvement!  This vacuum is incredibly lightweight and quiet yet very powerful.  It has the most fantastic attatchments.  The hardwood floor attatchment...

Best vacuum puchase I have ever made


I'm a canister person,and practical features is what I look for in a vacuum. This vacuum has a great suction power, and a telescope wand with two easy release bottons; one on the bottom and one on the top of the wand; just great. I love the way the...
