Black and Decker VN1400P Pros and Cons
MSRP$199 This vacuum is priced about average when compared to other canister vacuums.
Premium Features4 This vacuum cleaner has a below average number of premium features and ranks in the bottom 20% of canister vacuums.
Variable Suction ControlNo Power and suction levels cannot be adjusted when vacuuming diffferent surfaces such as delicate rugs, deep soiled carpets, or bare floors.
Finger-Tip ControlsNo Vacuum controls are a little less convenient to operate since they're not located at the top of the vacuuming wand within finger-tip reach.
Noise ReductionNo Special noise reduction features have not been incorporated and noise levels are typical of your standard vacuum cleaner.
HEPA Filter True or absolute HEPA filters are best. They can capture 97.99% of particles down to 0.3 microns including dust, pet dander, and allergens.
Absorb OdorsNo Charcoal filters are not common, but if you're a cat or dog owner, they do help absorb odors out of the carpet.
Auto Cord Rewind Auto-rewind is a convenient feature that allows you to rewind the cord with just the press of a button. It saves time and keeps your vacuum neat and organized.
Wand StorageNo Without onboard wand storage it takes a little additional effort to keep the vacuum organized and securely stored when not using it.
Special FeaturesNo Like most vacuums, this vacuum cleaner does not have any special features that are unique to this brand.
Indicator LightsNo Does not have indicator lights to alert you when required maintenance operations need attention such as filter or bag changing.
Edge CleaningNo Without edge cleaners, greater care must be taken to ensure room edges are vacuumed along the baseboard. Crevice tools in particular can help keep the edges dirt-free.
Longer Cord LengthNo Cord length is less than 25 feet and may require more frequent outlet changing depending on the size and layout of the rooms in your home.
HeadlightNo It's not a must-have feature, but if you vacuum in the evenings, or have a darker home interior, consider other models that come with a headlight.
Longer Warranty This vacuum is backed by a warranty that is two years or longer. The standard vacuum warranty is only one year and is one of the indicators for design and quality.
Motorized Brush-RollNo Without a motorized brush-roll, the vacuum has to work harder to remove dirt based on suction force alone. The brush-roll agitates the carpet and loosens dirt.
Turbo Brush Includes a turbo brush attachment that helps remove pet hair, dust, and dirt from furniture, stairways, and window coverings.
Weight (lbs)23 This vacuum cleaner is heavier than average and ranks in the top 20% of canister vacuums.
User Reviews3.8 Based on actual user experience and reviews, this vacuum is rated about average by 38 users when compared to other canister vacuums.
