A few friends SWEAR by their Dysons (I swear it’s a cult) but although the suction was impressive, I found it difficult to maneuver.  

I belong to the cult of Miele.  LOVE mine and the power nozzle was worth the extra splurge.

If you get the canister dyson it’s a lot easier to work with.

We have a regular dyson and while I do find it a bit bulky, it picks up an amazing amount of stuff. We bought ours refurbished off of and have not had any issues with it.

I must confess that I am part of the Dyson cult! I have the regular upright Dyson and I love it, but my friend has the canister and she thinks that’s great as well.  I really think you can’t go wrong with the Dyson.  It is amazing (and horrifying) how much it picks up!

I have a Dyson, and I’m very pleased with it.

ETA: My other favorite vaccum is my parents rainbow vac– but I think it was a little pricey.

I recently joined the Dyson cult.  I have the Dyson Animal upright.  If I’m remembering correctly it’s the DC25 model.  It’s amazing how much it picks up (I have a short haired dog that sheds like crazy).  I also have mostly hard woods with large rugs and it’s nice to be able to turn the brushes on and off as I switch from the hard woods to the carpets.  I highly recommend a Dyson.  (Though I did read alot of good things about the Miele as well.)

I have 2 Dysons and I would never buy another brand again, they are amazing and I’m a lifer!

ETA- I have an upright and the cordless digital slim, which has changed my life! We have mostly hardwood and tile and it’s amazing and so easy to get out and vacuum eveyday. Lovvvve it!!

@lilcafe:  +1. i’m of the miele cult too.

OP- i love my canister miele! the suction is awesome and it’s super quiet. i have this one:

it’s not bagless but i prefer that because i find bagless vacuums to be messy when you try to dump it out. the bags hold a ton. i’ve had my vacuum for a year and a half and just changed the bag about 2 months ago.

I love love love my Shark.  It costs half of what a Dyson costs, and it is the most amazing vacuum I have ever used.  I bought a low end one from Macy’s for $99 – my only regret is I didn’t buy the next higher model which had more tools.

We have had cheap hoovers, but recently we got a Dyson. I’m not sure of the model but its brilliant. It picks up the dirt really well and is so easy to use. I’d totally recommend getting one.

@Cem0930:  I love my dyson, specifially because we have carpet, wood and cremaic tile floors. I use it on all the floors and it has great suction on all floor types. Plus I love the tools. I got mine at Samsclub for a great price. Would definetly recommend it. Mine is the DC40.

Get a dyson from Costco! It’s amazing. I have the upright (less expensive one). It was $350 at Costco and we have laminate floors, some carpet area rugs & carpet in the bedrooms. We also have a cat

Dyson Animal.   I am SO happy with mine!!  I can’t count the number of vacuums I “killed” before discovering Dyson.  It is fabulous.

@Cem0930:  I love my miele, its my favorite thing ever. I have used dysons at work and home and really prefer the miele. I feel it flows better and the suction it great. I also found out the reason out runs and carpeting looked beat up was because of the dyson, apparently on the animal model the brissels are too tough so it tears in a bit so either get the older non ball version of the dyson animal or use the multi-floor, but i dont regret my miele for a second.
