Summary of C1 vs C2 comparison
Both of these vacuums series share a lot of the same qualities. The main differences are in the filtration and floor attachments. The C2 Compact series is far superior in its ability to clean carpeting and also comes with a HEPA filter. So if you are a customer that has mixed flooring with carpeting in your home, make sure and get the C2 Electro + vacuum.
If you have mostly hard flooring in your home with the occasional area rug sprinkled in...save some money and go with the C1 Compact series.
