Hiya Mister_Bojack,

I have not seen one yet but customer reviews seem pretty nice with one small caveat -- an adapter is required to attach the bare foor tool on the LcV900B. 

Thanks Venson!

Do you suppose the need for an  "adaptor" is because of the electrical fitting at the end of the wand for the power nozzle "quick connect", or is it to change the diameter of the wand to 1 1/4?

I'm really intrigued by this machine. Incidentally, I did see the video for the "follow me" model. What a hoot! Might be more than I need, but definitely looks like a piece of vacuum history in the making.  If I can ever get my hands on one of these, I'll submit a review.

Anyone tried the LG Kompressor Canister?

If you've seen it up close and personal, I'd sure like to know what you think of this model. I can't seem to find a retailer that actually keeps them in stock. Most everyone carries them as an "internet only" item.

what is your opinion on the machine's suction compared to other e series models?

I read somewhere that there is an optional longer electric hose available for this machine. Would be nice if this machine had enough airflow to to handle a longer hose.

I'm getting a mixed message here???? Your asking about a bagless vacuum because you've "had it with bags"...then you say you already HAVE a Dyson which I assume you know is a bagless vacuum. What are you really saying?

What am I really saying? Nothing at all. I've submitted a question to the forum and I'm getting good responses, well except for one.

If you read my message <carefully> , you'd see that I was inquiring about bagless canisters. The Dyson dc07 is an upright.

Ok, moving forward.

I tried borax in a new bag last week. so far so good. The mechanics of carbon for odor control was explained to me by a good friend of mine who's background is in organic chemistry. According to him, the reason why carbon baking soda and borax have limited effectiveness is because they neutralize the odors by reacting to the offending odor molecules. Upon this reaction with the odor molecules, the carbon molecules become neutralized as well. I do know that ozone molecules also work in this manner in those electronic ozone machine/air purifiers. Maybe someday we'll have a vacuum cleaner with an ozone generator built in.

Bagged or bagless, a teaspoon or two of baking soda or borax never hurts and save a lot of money over carbon filtering medium. If you opt for a bagless machine look for one with an easily washable dust containers and filters. You won't achieve smell-free cleaning sessions either without a little work or expense. Venson

Thanks Venson. I'll try this. Which one do you think works best? Carbon really isn't doing it for me.

I'm not looking for smell-free. It's not realistic. My Dyson dc07 doesn't smeel anything like my Oreck Platinum or my Miele Capricorn. The bags start to reek after 2 weeks. I've gots 4 dogs and a cat, but it takes me more than 2 weeks to fill a bag.
