  • Not Feeling the Magic: Kenmore Magic Blue Canister Vac

    Nov 30, 2008 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Compact, lightweight, relatively quiet, power control literally at your fingertips.
    Cons: Weak suction, flimsy, many petty annoyances.

    Summary: Earlier this year we were given a lot of household items by an elderly friend who was going into a retirement home.  He no longer needed many of his tools and appliances.  One of the items we accepted was the Kenmore Magic Blue vacuum ... read more

    Pros: Price, suction, quality, lightweight
    Cons: Upholstery brush useless

    Summary: I bought one of these vacuums about 8yrs ago and to be honest, it had some quirks. If left plugged in sometimes, it would just start spontaneously and would have to be unplugged to quit(I kept waiting for aliens to pop out). But I really think that was ... read more

  • Lots of add-ons but poor execution

    Aug 10, 2008 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Light, Handle, Bare Floor Attachment and nice design
    Cons: Poor on carpets, expensive replacement filter, not for moderate or larger areas

    Summary: The Kenmore Magic Blue looks and sounds real nice as it has many enhancements when compared to other canister vacuums at its price range ($69.99-$99.99). As the naked eye can see, this vacuum is not big at all, so it does have a light weight ... read more

    Summary: After my Hoover S3765-040 WindTunnel Bagless Canister Vacuum died an untimely death h ttp://www.epinions.com/content _401103425156 I HAD to find another vacuum quick. I didn't have a lot of money to spend and didn't have ... read more

  • For what it's worth...

    Jan 30, 2008 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: On-handle power switch, telescoping wand, light, maneuverable
    Cons: Cheaply made, rug attachment clogs easily

    Summary: I bought this vacuum as a last minute replacement to an Electrolux EL6985A canister vac, similar in size. That one cost me $300!! This one was only $69.99 on sale at Sears. So I grabbed it. Well, you get what you pay (or don't pay) for. While this ... read more

  • Good suction, short life, questionable parts.

    Aug 28, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great suction power, retractable cord, price.
    Cons: Short life, bad parts/accessories design.

    Summary: I purchased this vacuum for $99 from Sears for my small house for use on hardwood floors, tile floors, and a few rugs. For the first 6-8 months, it worked great. The suction power is truly amazing. But, then the problems began. The body and motor ... read more

    Pros: Retractable cord, Suction control and on/off switch in handle Full bag light
    Cons: Bag changing can be tricky, Hair may collect around nozzle

    Summary: My mother has always sworn by canister vacuums. I myself never saw the appeal, until I met the Kenmore Magic Blue. This was just after I had bought a Dirt Devil 12 Amp bagless upright vacuum. It became clear that if you matched the Magic Blue against ... read more

  • Best designed canister vacuum for hard floors and rugs that I've used in 60 years

    Jul 26, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Convenience of broom vacuum. Best features of big canister, without higher cost or drawbacks
    Cons: Not for mostly carpeted homes or people who only clean once a week or month.

    Summary: I AM AN ARCHITECT AND HATE TO USE CONSUMER PRODUCTS WITH POOR FUNCTIONAL DESIGN, OR THAT TRY TO BE ALL THINGS TO ALL SITUATIONS (THAT'S MOST OF THEM!) THIS UNIT IS ELEGANTLY DESIGNED FOR DAILY CLEANING OF HARD FLOORS. IT DOES EVERY NECESSARY THING WELL ... read more

  • Nothing magic about this vacuum

    Jul 7, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: several attachments; long cord; small
    Cons: pushes dirt around rather than sucking it up; loud; no brush; loses suction power quickly

    Summary: I do not recommend this vacuum. I bought it at Sears on sale for $89 and it does an awful job on my rugs. I have a one bedroom apartment with hard wood floors and rugs so I figured I could do with a small, non-expensive canister vac. I tested this vacuum ... read more

    Cons: Bag too small, CHEAP plastic parts.

    Summary: Although I like the ease of use  attractive vacuum, this vacuum fails for me.Why? The plastic used to make the parts inside the beater brush are cheap  and have broken on mine.   They do NOT sell the small part which ... read more

    Pros: Good on floors.
    Cons: Loud, hard to get bag in and out, lousy carpet attachment.

    Summary: I've had this vacuum about two years. It has good suction on floors, but carpet attachment stops working very quickly when it gets hair in it, as it is air driven. I ended up using the upholstery attachment for the carpet, which took forever as it is ... read more

    Summary: it works well as another person said as long as you arent using attachments. i find that with a brand new bag it works pretty good, but not after that initial use. i have pergo floors so its not like i'm expecting much, but its actually really nice for ... read more

    Pros: Great Suction
    Cons: Accesories are THE WORST! Doesnt wheel easily

    Summary: Vac has great suction and I think thats its only great part. The accesories are almost impossible to use, as you cant use the furniture and any accesory by simply putting that peice on the hose like ANY normal vacuum. You need to first attach the wand ... read more

    Summary: I bought the Magic Blue when it first came out. It was priced just right, even with a 2 year warranty on it!! I LOVED it. I thought it was THE BEST vacuum. However, the belt broke and no stores nearby carried the replacement. No where could have a ... read more

    Pros: Nice design, Small, lightweight, Retractable cord, easy pick up handle and good wheels
    Cons: Suction on rugs

    Summary: Terrible vacuum. It's has a nice, small, convenient design but can't clean rugs at all! It simply just pushes the hair and dirt around on the rug, leaving you to pick it up with your hands. It has good suction power WITHOUT the attachment, but this gets ... read more
