Advantages: Lightweight, user-friendly, sturdy
Disadvantages: Doesn't pick up quite as well on short carpets
My husband and I bought our Henry shortly after we got married in 2009. The first thing that struck me was, of course, how attractive this vacuum is. Thankfully, the Henry is more than just a "pretty face" and does its job very well. The Henry is very user-friendly and doesn't have a lot of "fiddly bits" to it. It has good suction and it works well on dog hair and picking up those pine needles after Christmas. It's quite sturdy and robust and doesn't have a lot of fancy bells and whistles to wear out and break. The Henry does seem to work a bit more effectively on longer carpets but by flipping the "switch" and using the brush on short carpet, it picks up well. It also works wonders on tile and hardwood floors and has nearly elimated the need to sweep in our home (which is fine with me!). As with all canister vacuums, they can tend to be a bit cumbersome but the Henry is lightweight and easy to maneuver. Also, the bags last quite a long time (we've had our Henry for nearly 7 months and have yet to change the original bag!). Overall, this vacuum is well worth the money and I expect it will last for many years to come.
Summary: GREAT value for money!
