I love my roomba because I hate to vacuum.  The only downside of the roomba is it’s inability to do stairs.

I used to sell Kirby vacuums in college, granted maybe 15 years ago before Dyson. They were pretty awesome, but I remember Hoovers with Windtunnel technology being pretty awesome in comparison.

We have a shark and love it!  My parents always had dysons and then bought a shark and the shark works WAAAAYYY better and is less money too.  Ours is called the rotator I think

we had a dyson and returned it back for a shark rotator pro. It is WAY WAY WAY better, with so many more options and configurations, and costs SO much less.

We have a Shark Navigator Professonal and it works great.  Even for cat hair.  It’s nice that it has a bare floor setting for the hardwood.

I just replaced my broken 6 year old Dyson with a Shark Lift Away. My Dyson was at the repair shop 3 times during the 5 year warranty period.   The repair guy said he covers all his overhead off of Dyson repairs. So far the Shark is great but I still have to clean the hair from the roller thing.

We have a Bissell Clean View Complete Pet vacuum, it’s amazing! We do have a 5 year old border-collie mix (read: tons of hair and shedding) and this vacuum does wonders, not just picking up hair, but also tons of dust/dirt that you’d have no idea was lying in the carpet. We actually like to use this vaccum on the bare floor as well and it’s fantastic. It also has various attachments that allow you easily vacuum furniture and small spaces.

Dyson big ball animal here, we love it. I really really like that it rights itself when it topples, that shit drives me cray.

Shark Navigator Lift Away Pro. If you have tile and wood, the hair scoots off to the sides of the floor and makes bunnies. Detach the hose (it’s extra easy on this vacuum) and suck it all up directly into the canister. That way you won’t need to be bothered trying to get it out of the brushes .

I have a dyson.  I also bought a shark stick to do things like the stairs and cars easier.  Shark convert.  they are even better than the dysons. I quit using my dyson.  And cheaper!  I am on some cleaning groups and shark has like a cult following.

I got my Kirby from a Pawn Shop. Spent less than $100 on it! A steal!!! I absolutly love it! Only second best to the central vacuum in the house we now have. Even though I still think the Kirby sucks up better… and I’ve had it for 10 years now! The only way you will get one in the price range is used but totally worth every penny!

We had a Dyson and I found it heavy to push and the head was hard to get into corners. When it died, we bought a Miele and love it!  It is lightweight yet powerful and so much easier to use than the Dyson.
