Independent Review of the Soniclean Galaxy 1150 Canister Power Head Vacuum!
The Soniclean Galaxy 1150 Canister w/ Power Head model was designed to offer a light-weight option for cleaning hard floors and short pile carpet or mats. It weighs in at a modest 12 pounds.
Soniclean the Company

Their claim to fame is their sonic vibrating technology that is intended to loosen allergy-causing dirt form carpet fibers (available on UPRIGHT MODELS ONLY.)
Soniclean doesn’t do any conventional advertising claiming to pass the savings on to those consumers who are “lucky enough” to find them.

The Soniclean Galaxy 1150 Canister is an attractive canister model with the Graphite color.
The suction power is good and with the Hard Floor Brush attachment (included) it does a very good job on hardwood or smooth floor surfaces. This Horse Hair Hard Floor Brush works perfect for cleaning Berber Carpet also.
The Turbo Power attachment is powered by the air being sucked over a turbine and works OK on short pile carpet. It lacks the power to be really effective on medium to higher pile carpet. You really need a motor-powered beater bar or brushroll for that job.
It does have a Variable Speed motor so you can reduce the suction when vacuuming light-weight mats and throw rugs without lifting them off the floor.
The Multi-layered bags offer very good HEPA filtration and they feature a molded plastic flap that seals the bag shut when it is removed.
This is a very good feature for allergy suffers. The bags are accordingly on the expensive side at approx. $3.50 ea, however they hold a lot of dirt and will not require replacing often.
The dirt capacity is small compared to a full-size canister vacuums which means this model may not be suitable if you have pets that shed hair. Or, if your home has new carpet that will shed a lot of loose fiber the first year or so.
The Soniclean Galaxy 1150 does do a very good job on hardwood floors and low pile carpet. Its a great choice if you have Berber Carpet.
The price point is relatively high compared to other similar canister vacs. For approximately the same price as the Soniclean Galaxy 1150 you can own a Miele Classic C1 Olympus Vacuum that is also of German quality.
The Galaxy 1150 generally receives mostly positive customers reviews. I highly recommend this vacuum!
