We got this one from our registry, and we LOVE it. It’s the best vacuum I’ve ever used–we have two black cats and beige carpets, and our carpets look SO clean after we use it.

I know you said “under $200.00”, but for a hundred or so dollars more, you could get a Miele vacuum. They are great vacuums. You can see videos of how well they work on Youtube, and they are very well reviewed on many websites.

I have a Dyson but it’s not under $200.

@allyfally:  I have one of the Dyson cyclone vacuums- this one. I love it, and it gets into all the awkward places like corners and under tables and things like that. It vacuums well on tiles, hardwood, and carpet/rugs. It’s also pretty lightweight and moves easily.

They certainly aren’t under $200 but there are a lot of vacuums you can get within that budget. Hoovers are good too, my parents have one of the wind tunnel ones and they love it.

Well it isn’t under $200 but it is the best darn vacuum for pets….Dyson Animal Complete. It is a total game changer and worth every penny.

we’ve only had our’s for a year, but so far we’ve been happy with it. we don’t have any pets, but my hair falls out like crazy and it sucks it up with no problem, haha. i cleaned out the filter and canister a couple weeks ago and i could have made a wig with all the hair that came out.

What about those robotic ones? Any comments good or bad? Our house has no stairs and almost no carpet. (And no dogs, just a cat).

I got my Dyson for $300 on a Black Friday sale. I love it.

I second the Hoover WindTunnel though, my parents used to have one and they loved it. They eventually upgraded to a Dyson but they used the Hoover for a long time.

@paula1248:  My parents got the irobot scuba (mopping robot) and they are on their third one. They have to keep sending it back. It also doesn’t always stay in the room where they set it to run and they have to block off the stairs just to make sure it doesn’t fall down them. When it works, they seem happy with how it cleans their wood floors, but they’ve had a lot of issues with it.

I use a bagless Bissell, and I bought it from Amazon based on good reviews for pet hair. 4 years and going strong — I am convinced that cleaning the canisters well and replacing the HEPA filter will make it last a good long time, so I take good care of it.

I actually hate the little pet hair hose attachment that came with it, but the vacuum itself is great.
