Bag Bag Denotes whether the model has a disposable bag. A growing number of vacuums, particularly upright models, use a container that can be emptied, eliminating the bag. To capture fine-dirt particles, however, these models must use a filter (such as a HEPA filter) that can need routine cleaning or replacement. Replacement filters tend to be significantly more expensive than bags. While vacuums with bags may also use filters, the bag acts as a prefilter that helps to keep the fine-dirt filter cleaner, thus extending its performance until cleaning or replacement. Another caveat: Emptying the dustbin and cleaning a filter can be messy, and handling it may expose you to dust and other allergens.
Weight (lbs.) Weight Weight of the vacuum cleaner, to the nearest pound.
Cord length (ft) Cord length The length, in feet, of a model's power cord.


Brush on/off Brush on/off An on/off switch for the rotating brush lets you stop the brush from rotating when using tools or cleaning bare floors. This helps eliminate scattered dirt on bare floors and reduces the risk of injury if the vacuum tips over during use. It also reduces the risk of damaging a carpet or the finish of a bare floor if the vacuum sits in place at the low-height setting.
Easy on/off Easy on/off A switch that's located on the handle or where your foot can activate it is more convenient than one on the body of the vacuum.
Manual-pile adjust Manual-pile adjust Lets you adjust the height of the machine to a carpet's pile height to allow for easy movement and thorough cleaning. Adjustments are automatic on some models, but we prefer the manual control afforded by some models.
Suction control Suction control This feature reduces the flow of air through the hose, which can be helpful when cleaning upholstery and curtains.
Retractable cord Retractable cord Common in canisters, not uprights, a retractable cord is one you can rewind via a slight tug or a push button.
Full-bag/bin indicator Full-bag/bin indicator Some models have a feature alerting the user when the dust bag or container is full, which impairs the vacuum's ability to clean. Some such models that are bagless simply have a clear bin, letting you see when the bin is full. Other models have an electronic indicator.
High efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter High efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter High-efficiency particulate-air (HEPA) filters provide the highest level of vacuum-cleaner filtration. In our tests, models with a HEPA filter have been very effective at reducing emissions. However, some models that don't have HEPA filters have performed just as well in our tests, and such vacuums may cost less than HEPA models.
