The NaceCare HVR 200 Henry is a good overall canister vacuum that performs best on bare floors. It's a very well-built vacuum that's extremely easy to maintain. The only part that you need to take care of is the dirt compartment and since it's big, you won't have to worry about emptying it often. It has excellent performance on bare floors but it's only decent on low-pile carpet and it's disappointing on high-pile carpet. Unfortunately, it only comes with a handful of tools and the canister is fairly heavy to carry around. Regardless, the hose has a good range, which is useful for vacuuming stairs or cars.

Our Verdict

8.4 Bare Floor

The NaceCare HVR 200 Henry is excellent to use on bare floors. It sucks up small and large debris quite easily except its performance drops a bit as the dirt compartment is nearly full. It has great maneuverability and it has a good range too. The vacuum is extremely easy to maintain and the only recurring cost is that you need to buy new bags.

Pros
  • Very big dirt compartment.
  • Excellent performance with any type of debris on bare floors.
  • Extremely easy to maintain.
Cons
  • Loses performance as dirt compartment fills.
7.8 Low-Pile Carpet

Good for low-pile carpet. The NaceCare HVR 200 Henry performs well on this surface as it sucks up most hair but struggles a bit with small and large debris. There's a power adjustment setting and you can retract the hard bristles on the main head to make it easier to clean on carpet. It has a very big dirt compartment, great maneuverability, and it's also extremely easy to maintain.

Pros
  • Very big dirt compartment.
  • Cleans most hair on low-pile carpet.
  • Extremely easy to maintain.
Cons
  • Struggles with debris on low-pile and high-pile carpet.
7.3 High-Pile Carpet

The NaceCare HVR 200 Henry is okay to use on high-pile carpet. It has disappointing performance on high-pile carpet as it fails to suck up most small and large debris. It has a power adjustment setting but you need to set it to low suction on high-pile carpet because it's hard to move otherwise. On the upside, it's extremely easy to maintain and it's very well-built.

Pros
  • Very big dirt compartment.
  • Extremely easy to maintain.
Cons
  • Struggles with debris on low-pile and high-pile carpet.
  • Not the best at sucking up hair on high-pile carpet.
7.5 Pets

The NaceCare HVR 200 Henry is a decent vacuum if you have pets. It cleans a good amount of hair on bare floors but it cleans more hair on low-pile carpet. The dirt compartment is very big so you won't need to worry about changing the bag for a while if you're just vacuuming hair. Unfortunately, it doesn't have any pet-specific tools like a turbo brush.

Pros
  • Cleans most hair on low-pile carpet.
  • Excellent performance with any type of debris on bare floors.
Cons
  • Limited included tools.
  • Not the best at sucking up hair on high-pile carpet.
8.2 Stairs

The NaceCare HVR 200 Henry is good to vacuum stairs with. Since it's a canister vacuum it's not the most portable as the canister is fairly heavy. Luckily, the hose has a good length and the vacuum is excellent on bare floors. Unfortunately, it doesn't perform as well on carpet, so it's not ideal if you have carpeted stairs.

Pros
  • Cleans most hair on low-pile carpet.
  • Excellent performance with any type of debris on bare floors.
  • Good range.
Cons
  • Canister is heavy to carry around.
  • Struggles with debris on low-pile and high-pile carpet.
7.6 Cars

Decent for cleaning cars. You can place the canister outside the car and the hose is long enough to clean the entire car. The NaceCare HVR 200 Henry has decent performance on low-pile carpet and it comes with a crevice tool to help clean those hard-to-reach places in the car.

Pros
  • Cleans most hair on low-pile carpet.
  • Good range.
Cons
  • Canister is heavy to carry around.
  • Struggles with debris on low-pile and high-pile carpet.
  • Limited included tools.

Build Quality

Overall, the NaceCare HVR 200 Henry has excellent build quality. It's mainly made out of plastic, except for the wand and bottom of the head, which are both made out of aluminum. Unfortunately, the wand doesn't have a handle, but the head has a simple, well-built design.

Unfortunately, the manual cable management handle is hard to turn and put the cables back in. On the upside, the whole vacuum is easy to assemble as well.

Design
User Maintenance

The vacuum is really easy to maintain. The disposable bag is reachable by opening the canister lid and the installation of a new bag is really easy as well.

If you need to clean any parts, they're easy to get to. Some hairs and debris may get stuck in the wheel of the vacuum head, but you can simply remove the head to clean it. Additionally, you can disassemble the wand to clean any debris stuck in it.

Design
Recurring Cost
Bag Part Number 604015

There aren't too many recurring costs with this vacuum. You will need to buy replacement bags, but because the capacity is really big, it should take longer to fill up.

This vacuum has decent storing capability, mainly because of its big size. There's space for only two tools to fit the on-board storage. Unlike the Airsign HEPA Vacuum, its power cord doesn't retract automatically at the press of a button. Instead, it has to be retracted manually using a rather stiff rotating crank mechanism, which some users might find hard to turn.

The dirt compartment is larger than the Eureka Whirlwind Bagless Canister and can hold a good amount of debris. Unfortunately, there's no indicator on the vacuum to notify you when the dirt compartment is full.

Excellent performance on bare floors. It keeps its performance fairly consistent until the bag is at over half capacity, then there's a significant decrease in performance. Unfortunately, pet hair gets stuck in the bristle of the vacuum head, but without the bristle, you'd scratch the floor. Consider the SEBO Airbelt D4 if you're looking for a bagged canister vacuum that struggles less with pet hair on this surface and delivers outstanding overall performance on this surface type.

This vacuum has decent low-pile carpet performance. It isn't nearly as good as on bare floors, but its performance is more consistent as the bag gets filled. It does a really good job at cleaning pet hair on low-pile carpet. If you're looking for a better-performing canister vacuum on low-pile carpet, check out the Eureka Mighty Mite.

This vacuum has a disappointing performance on high-pile carpet. Unlike the Miele Classic C1, the NaceCare really struggles to pick up small debris such as baking soda. Its performance is slightly improved with large debris, such as sand though. For pet owners, it's decent for cleaning pet hair on high-pile carpet.

Maneuverability

This vacuum has great overall maneuverability. The long wand and rotating head allow for good movement around objects, but the canister must be moved manually once in a while since it could get stuck behind bigger objects, such as furniture. The vacuum can reach far underneath couches and tables, but it's hard to keep the head pushed against the floor. The head tilts back on its wheels and loses contact with the floor, making it harder to clean. With the included tools, it's easy to clean on furniture, but you'll need to attach the tool adapter to the end of the wand since none of the tools fit directly on the wand. Unfortunately, cleaning rugs might pose a problem, as even on low setting, it still sucks up the rug. On the upside, it's good to move around electric cords lying around.

Compared To Other Vacuums

The NaceCare HVR 200 Henry is very easy to maintain and it has a bigger dirt compartment than most other canister vacuums that we've tested. However, it lags behind the Miele Classic C1 in terms of cleaning performance and really struggles on carpet. Also see our recommendations for the best vacuums, the best hardwood vacuums, and the best vacuums for pet hair.

Miele Complete C3 Alize PowerLine

The Miele Complete C3 Alize PowerLine is a better overall canister vacuum than the NaceCare HVR 200 Henry. The Miele has a better performance on all surface types, especially on carpet, and it's more maneuverable. The Miele also has a HEPA filter and is easier to store. However, the NaceCare has a bigger dirt compartment, longer cord and hose lengths, and it comes with a hard bristle brush.

Miele Classic C1

The Miele Classic C1 is a better canister vacuum overall than the NaceCare HVR 200 Henry. While both vacuums are easy to maintain, the Miele is lighter and it stores away a bit better. It has a better performance on all surfaces, and it's able to clean more pet hair as well as small and large debris too. However, the NaceCare feels a little more robust, has a longer range, its dirt compartment is much bigger, and it has less recurring costs.

Airsign HEPA Vacuum

The Airsign HEPA Vacuum and NaceCare HVR 200 Henry are both canister vacuums that have advantages and disadvantages, meaning one might suit you better than the other, depending on your exact requirements. The Airsign is a better option for pet owners thanks to its onboard HEPA filter and superior hair-pickup performance. It's also easier to maintain, takes up less room, weighs less, and performs better on bare floors and high-pile carpet. That said, the better-built NaceCare is a superior option for cleaning bigger areas, thanks to its much longer power cord and use of considerably larger dirtbags.

Eureka Whirlwind Bagless Canister

The Eureka Whirlwind Bagless Canister is a better overall canister vacuum than the NaceCare HVR 200 Henry. The Eureka is bagless, lighter, and it performs significantly better on all surface types. However, the NaceCare feels better built, it's more maneuverable, it comes with more tools and brushes, and its range is better too. It also has a bigger dirt compartment.

Milwaukee M18 FUEL 3-in-1 Backpack Vacuum Kit

The NaceCare HVR 200 Henry and Milwaukee M18 FUEL 3-in-1 Backpack Vacuum Kit are differently-designed vacuums with different use cases. The NaceCare is a bagged canister vacuum primarily designed for home cleaning. It's easier to maintain, clears more debris on high-pile carpet, and comes with a wider assortment of tools and accessories. Conversely, the Milwaukee is a backpack/handheld vacuum with a cordless design meant for cleaning workshops and construction sites. Its cordless design allows you to clean far from any electrical outlets. It also has a HEPA filter to trap allergens as you clean, incurs lower recurring costs, and clears more debris on bare floors and high-pile carpet.

RYOBI 18V One+ 3 Gal. Project Wet/Dry

The NaceCare HVR 200 Henry and RYOBI 18V One+ 3 Gal. Project Wet/Dry target different uses. The NaceCare is a household-oriented corded canister vacuum better suited for cleaning larger areas. It's also slightly better-built and comes with two extra brush attachments. Conversely, the RYOBI is a handheld shop vacuum with a cordless design that allows you to clean far from any electrical outlets. Its strong suction also lets it do a better job sucking up debris on most surface types, and you can use it to clear liquid messes.

Shark Navigator Lift-Away Deluxe NV360

The NaceCare HVR 200 Henry is a better vacuum for cleaning bare floors than the Shark Navigator Lift-Away Deluxe NV360. The NaceCare feels better built, it's easier to maintain and maneuver, and it has a larger dirt compartment. It also has a longer range than the Shark and its performance on bare floors is significantly better too. However, the Shark is much better for low and high-pile carpet. It can also be used in a handheld configuration and it has virtually no recurring costs.

SEBO Airbelt D4

The SEBO Airbelt D4 is better than the NaceCare HVR 200 Henry. The SEBO is easier to store, has a longer operating range, has a more advanced three-stage filtration system, weighs a little less, and delivers better performance on bare floors and carpets. Meanwhile, the NaceCare uses even larger dirtbags that don't need to be replaced as often and is a little more maneuverable.

Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Animal Canister

The NaceCare HVR 200 Henry is a better canister vacuum for tackling debris on bare floors than the Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Animal. The NaceCare has a better build quality, it's slightly easier to maintain, and its dirt compartment can hold much more debris. It also has a larger range, and its performance on bare floors is excellent. However, the Dyson has a better performance on high-pile carpet, and it comes with more tools and brushes, which makes it slightly more versatile for home-use. 

Eureka Mighty Mite

The NaceCare HVR 200 Henry and the Eureka Mighty Mite are two similarly performing canister vacuums but the Eureka is better for cleaning cars. The Eureka's wand is made of two parts so you can shorten it if you need more maneuverability. Its performance on all surface types is also significantly better, and it's more portable. However, the NaceCare feels better built, its dirtbag holds more debris, and it comes with a few more brushes and tools. It's also more maneuverable overall.

BISSELL Zing Bagged Canister

The NaceCare HVR 200 Henry is a better canister vacuum than the BISSELL Zing Bagged Canister. The NaceCare is better-built, easier to maintain, incurs fewer recurring costs, and has a far bigger dirt compartment. It also has a longer power cord and struggles less with bulky material. Meanwhile, the BISSELL is lighter and easier to carry.
