Amazon.com Review

Suitable for large areas and heavy traffic, the 12-amp Fantom Falcon canister vacuum delivers versatile applications in a user-friendly design. The vacuum's motorized carpet nozzle features a 12-inch cleaning path and automatically adjusts for changes in carpet height. An additional power head is included for vacuuming bare floors. For accommodating delicate rugs and surfaces, the nozzle also comes with variable suction control. Completely bag-free, the Falcon collects dirt and debris in a transparent dust cup that includes a HEPA filter. Pleated for maximum surface area, the HEPA filter traps allergens and irritants as small as 0.3 microns, for cleaner floors and cleaner air. When the cup is full, just unhook it from the canister, release the bottom panel, and empty into a trashcan. An integrated lid keeps this process tidy. The HEPA filter itself can be tapped clean for regular maintenance and should be replaced about every six months for optimum performance. An additional washable post-motor filter should be replaced about every 3 months.

Structurally, the Falcon is sturdy, with components that fit together without extra bulk and release without flimsiness. The chrome handle telescopes for variation in use, and the power nozzle has its own power switch. For above-floor cleaning, the vacuum features a tidy hatch full of onboard tools, including a crevice tool, an upholstery attachment, a dusting brush, and a filter-cleaning brush. It also has a headlight, automatic cord retraction, and a motor-protective thermostat that cuts power to prevent overheating. The canister must be stored horizontally, but the hose detaches to make this simpler. --Emily Bedard ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars worst vacuum ever
I own the fantom falcon for 6 months and the belt has gone bad on the power head. I placed an order for another belt and the fantom company told me it was on back order and it would take 6 to 8 weeks to get a new one sent to me. "WOW" no vacuum for that long, I have wall to wall carpet with a persain cat. I also don't like the way the hepa filter is on the basket it sits right in the middle of where you collect the dirt and that collects most of the cat hair and dirt> I always had to use a air compressor to blow out the dirt every time I used It. Please anyone looking to buy this vacuum that doesn't have a air compressor and has wall to wall carpet better think again.

1-0 out of 5 stars Made cheap and it shows!
I bought this vacuum at a local wholesale store today. I brought it home, put it together, and vacuumed for about five minutes until the hose ripped. I'll be returning it this evening. I didn't realize it was made by Euro-Pro, the same people who make the Shark line of products--which I was also disappointed with. The other vacuum didn't have much suction, and wasn't worth the money. Look elsewhere to spend your money, this brand is all Lemon!

2-0 out of 5 stars Fantom falls flat
This vacuum is just not as powerful as it boasts to be. I always felt it was inferior, but getting a second opinion sealed it. I had my grand piano tuned, and the tuner asked to borrow the vacuum to clean out some dust. When I gave him this fantom to use, he told me "you have a pretty weak vacuum here". It couldn't even efficiently clean dust from a piano. the vacuum is only 6 months old, but I can't take it back, so I'm going to put an ad in the paper to get rid of it. Another thing is I find it difficult to store in a closet, and a pain to drag around. I'll be going back to an upright model, and I'm open to suggestions. :O)

2-0 out of 5 stars Beware of Falcon
We were seduced to buy a Falcon bagless by the stylish European design and the good reputation of HEPA filter. What we've got really stinks... but not exactly in a sense we expected it. It is as noisy as a Russian bomber and requires almost as much care as a newborn baby (clean pre-engine filter and HEPA filter after each use, buy new filters every 3 to 6 months). And the cleaning of the dust container and HEPA filter is a pure pain -- you need a gas mask for that. On top of that all, our Falcon was not flying high -- it broke down on the second use. When we checked the instruction for a list of repair centers, it turned out that there aren't any -- they want you to mail the whole thing to them, pay for the shipping and insurance and send them money.. to cover costs of shipping it back.
Isn't that what nightmares are about?

2-0 out of 5 stars Not as good as the fantom lightning
i bought the fantom falcom canister vacuum cleaner to replace my old fantom lightning which i loved but the motor burnt out on it. when i recived it i opened the box, and assembled it when i started vacumming with the falcon it did a wonderful job but after awhile i noticed that it wasnt picking up as good as before. so i empied the dirt container and ammeidlety noticed the prolbem. the filter in the middle of the dirt container was all clogged up with dirt. so i tapped it aginst my trash can and dirt went everywhere. the old lightning canister didnt have a filter in the middle of the dirt container. i think that fantom has really taken a downfall of quality ever since euro-pro bought the company. ...

Amazon.com Review

The 12-amp Fantom Thunderbolt canister vacuum is lightweight and quiet, but it also packs a lot of power into its very user-friendly design. The vacuum’s motorized power head has a wide, 15-inch cleaning path with a headlight to illuminate the cleaning area. Additionally, a lever on the head lets you manually adjust it to varying carpet heights. The chrome telescoping handle also adjusts to the height of the user, preventing back strain from bending while vacuuming. The Thunderbolt features a convenient bagless design that traps debris within an easy-to-empty transparent dust cup. A HEPA filter within the dust cup effectively removes 99.97 percent of airborne particles as small as 0.3 microns, leaving fewer irritants and allergens within the home.

At 26 pounds, this vacuum travels easily and its wide wheels make it especially sturdy for vacuuming on stairs. The Thunderbolt has three on-board tools—a crevice tool, an upholstery attachment, and a dusting brush—to cover a wide range of cleaning needs throughout the house. In addition, large power and cord retraction buttons on the top of the unit are accessible by foot while you’re gripping the handle. --Cristina Vaamonde ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Be Afraid, be very afraid
Fantom products have gone WAY downhill since they were acquired by Euro-Pro/Shark. This product may last past it's warranty, but likely will not. And you'll need a Lot of patience once you try and get any "customer service" from this company, because they don't know the meaning of the words. Run, don't walk, away from this or any product by this company!!! Don't go thru all the aggravation I have! If you have any doubts, check out TheComplaintStation.com for Euro-Pro!

1-0 out of 5 stars Worst ever
Although it has good suction and a power head.... It topples over all the time while vacuuming, gets clogged and my power head went dead and no one can fix or replace it.... so that's it! I only used it 6 times in 1 year, since I have maid service. Worst ever! This was my second and last Fantom!

1-0 out of 5 stars worst vacuum ever!
I bought this vacuum because I owned the Fantom Fury upright and thought it was great, but wanted a canister. It seemed perfect- bagless, hepa, light, etc. It is the worst vacuum I've ever had. My dustbuster has more suction. The parts are made of cheapo plastic. The "adjustable suction" nob keeps opening. The body keeps flipping over. The retractable cord keeps sticking. The worst part is that dust gets so caked onto the filter that I have to scrape each ridge with a toothpick between each use, or there's no suction at all. Today I plugged it in, and it didn't turn on. I just bought this piece of junk 3 months ago. This is the first review I've ever written, but I felt I had to warn everyone.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Vacuum for all ages
My mom makes me vacuum the carpets and the tile floors a lot. When our very old Kenmore canister's engine burnt out we needed a very good and powerful vacuum fast. Our floors get very dirty and we have shag carpet in the basement. Its best feature that didn't come on out old vac is the hard floor cleaning tool. I was looking at the reviews all the other people wrote and they don't know what they are talking about!! I really thing you should consider this canister vac.

1-0 out of 5 stars Very poor quality plastic
I had the previous Phantom vaccuum - the Lightning which was great. This one is so cheap and poorly put together. The unit is so loud, suction fair at best, and the plastic handle feels like it will snap at any moment. ... Read more
