Some higher priced vacuums bring in all sorts of extras, such as multiple filtering systems and assorted ways to adjust settings for different types of surfaces.
The Samsung MultiChamper SC96 has some of that, but it keeps the bells and whistles in the background and keeps the system easy to operate and dedicated to powerful cleaning.
The removable cannister is well designed, durable and a breeze to clean. That's one big plus I find compared with other bagless cleaners.
I find the one detraction is the long and somewhat unwieldy main pipe/hose handle. The unit is a bit too long and stiff for the kind of vacuuming I do. I will add Samsung designed the tube handle so that it can be telescoped shorter or longer. Still, I'd like a version of the handle that isn't as long as this one is.
Its suction power, over the first 3 months, has remained steady, powerful, and adjustable. That's another feature I regard as a nice addition.
Is it worth the price? If you're like me, with a house with two dogs and a cat, the cleaning value of this machine is easily worth the price.
