Consumers looking for a budget canister vacuum can choose between bagged and bagless models. There are pros and cons to each. Bags tend to keep dust and allergens tightly confined but require ongoing expense for replacements while the dirt/dust cups in bagless canister vacs are easy to empty but can let some dust fly. The filter system is another consideration. HEPA filtration is considered superior by many users as it captures more than 99.9% of the dust, dander, mites and other particles, and is probably the best choice for households where allergies are present. Other common filtration systems in the Cheapism price niche use standard filters or micro filters. Some features that affect the user-friendliness of budget canister vacuums include weight, cord and hose lengths, and width of the cleaning path.
