Dyson! If you can afford it, get it. The amount of money we have spent on other (crappier) vacuums easily surpasses the price of one Dyson that will last much longer!

Dyson!  Totally worth it. 

If you can wait at all, sometimes you can get really good sales or open box discounts around Xmas.  That’s how I got mine for about 1/2 price.

Dyson is the ONLY brand of vacuum we will buy now! I would recommend either “the animal” or “the ball”- both are great.

I did my research and heard so many amazing things about the dyson, so I saved up and went to buy one. I didn’t realize until I saw it in person just how big and heavy it is. I’m very tiny, only 5’1″ and just over 100 lbs, so after trying it out in the store for an hour I realized it just wasn’t going to work, especially going up and down my stairs. I ended up with an Oreck, I’ve had it for a year and it’s been great so far. They aren’t very cool looking, but they’re super light and do a great job on any surface.

Thought I’d mix it up a little!

My mom and my cleaning lady swear by their Sears Kenmore Progressive canister vacs. My cleaning lady hates my Eureka and brings here own vac. I’m about ready to ditch the Eureka, it seems to be doing a bad job lately and I’ve changes the bag and belt. Also various plastic pieces for the atachments are breaking.  My mom never liked her Oreck, but my AUnt loves hers.

We’re still hoping to get a Dyson, but our Electrolux broke (after like 15 years, I can’t complain too much!) and we had to buy something that wouldn’t break the bank.  I read all the reviews and test results on Consumer Reports and we wound up with a Hoover bagless upright with the cord rewind system, and it works great so far.  We got it at Sears, so if anything at all breaks over the next 2 years, they will replace the vacuum or completely fix it, for free, as many times as needed.  For $120 (including the vacuum price) that seemed like a pretty good deal.

It doesn’t get under the coffee table easily, and I think any upright would have a tough time with that…so my new experience taught me to get a canister vac next time, but DEFINITELY sticking with the bagless!  The rinsable filter (meaning no pricey filter replacements) is fab, too.

We don’t have dogs but we do have a bunny; he sheds quite a bit for his 3-pound size!

We have the Dyson Animal, and it is awesome!  We have two big mutts, and I during shedding season (like right now) I have to vaccum every day.  My floors always look super clean, though, and I’m always amazed at how much dog hair/dirt/etc… the Dyson picks up!

I have the dyson animal and I am in love! I love how easy it is to get around. It picks up wonderfully. Using the hose is so easy. The only thing that I am not 100% in love with is that the on/off switch isn’t on the handel or by the foot. I liked how my last vacume had it by the foot and my one before that had it on the handel. Both were very handy. But that is a VERY small negative. It works so so so well. I can’t rave about it enought.

@ktisthatbees:  I’m petite, too, so I totally get the weight issue; it’s light enough (maybe 20 lbs? but easy to push/manuever) that it doesn’t wear me out, even vaccuming the whole house every day.  🙂  Definitely try it out; that’ll make your mind up for you!
