The NaceCare HVR 200 Henry was released in 2018 as a mid-tier canister vacuum that can be used for cleaning a wide range of surfaces. With a noise output of only 47 dB, it is quieter than some of the best vacuum cleaners on the market, and it also has a long 31 ft cord that makes it easy to maneuver.

It weighs about 18 pounds and has a sizeable 9-liter dirt compartment that puts robovacs like the Yeedi K650 to shame with their smaller 0.8-liter dirt capacity. The compartment is easy to open, and since it is large, it will not need frequent emptying. It also has a decent suction force of up to 1.81 kPa on its highest setting, and even though it can’t lift a 6-pound bowling ball like the Panasonic New Hybrid, it is pretty good for everyday cleaning.

Reasons to Buy

  • Versatile cleaning
  • Low noise output
  • Decent suction force
  • Good selection of tools
  • Large dirt compartment

Reasons to Not

  • Not ideal for carpets
  • Heavy to maneuver
  • No allergen HEPA filter

Market Context

Compared to the same brand’s similar models: The NaceCare HVR 200 is not as easy to maneuver as the NaceCare 244NX since it has a cord while the 244NX does not. However, the 244NX is a lot heavier at 46 pounds compared to the HVR 200, which weighs about 18.08 pounds.

Compared to other brands’ similar models: The NaceCare HVR 200 has better build quality than the Shark Navigator Deluxe NV360. It also has a larger 9-liter dirt compartment than the NV360, which has a 1.1-liter dirt bin.

At 18.08 pounds, the NaceCare HVR 200 is slightly heavier than the Eureka Whirlwind Bagless Canister, which weighs about 10.8 pounds. However, the HVR 200 has a longer 31.17 ft power cord compared to the Whirlwind’s 13.85 ft cord and a larger 9-liter drum capacity compared to the Whirlwind’s 0.6-liter bin.

Critic Consensus

The NaceCare HVR 200 Henry impressed testers with its versatility, as they could use it to clean many different surfaces. Expert reviewers from Rtings tested it by cleaning bare floors, carpets, stairs, furniture, car interiors, and even workshops. They were delighted with its ability to pick up debris from bare floors, as it picked up to 99% of litter. Also pleasing was its ability to suck up to 120 cubic feet of airflow per minute, which testers from Trusted Reviews found was quite powerful. They also thought the dusting brush, crevice tool, combination upholstery tool, and manual drop-down bristles were enough for general cleaning.

However, reviewers weren’t surprised with how much it struggled when cleaning carpets since it’s not one of the top vacuums without a beater bar. During their tests, it cleared up about 65% of debris on low-pile carpets and a lower 39% on high-pile carpets. Its lack of a HEPA filter was also disappointing, and so was its 18-pound weight.
