dyson!! but thats over $200 seriously after going through all the cheaper vacuums spend the extra $150 and buy a dyson. We have the pet ball and im in love with it still after a year has gone by. If you dont have dogs spend closer to your $200 limit and get the non-pet version if you want to. I know the pet version has a better rating and the ball manuverability is way worth it!!!

You should look at the most recent Consumer Reports. They have a list of their recommended vacuums and I bought one of them that was on sale at Target.

I’ve been happy with my little Shark Navigator.

I’ve always been really happy with my Kenmore vacuums.  They suck good!!  The attachments are also really easy to use.  I’ve had two, now.  I stupidly gave the first away when I inherited a much more expensive fancy vacuum, but I missed the first enough to give away my more expensive vacuum and buy a new Kenmore.  They work great for picking up hair — both mine and pet hair.  And mine (and my MIL’s) seem to hold up well over the years. 

I almost got the Dyson ball, but couldn’t justfiy spending over twice as much.  Even if this one only lasts half as long (and it will probably last just as long) I will still have saved money.

Agree with SthnBelle45:  bite the bullet and spend the money… cheap vacuums are headaches… they break down quickly, lose suction etc (owned a Shark portible after my Black & Decker Dust Buster died, and it was a piece of crap!!)

I haven’t had a Dyson yet… all our vacuums (mine and Mr TTRs) have come over the year from Sears (so Kenmore is the brand name).  These suckers work well and last a long time.  Mr TTRs is about 20 years old.  My own first one lasted about 10 years, then we bought a new one (my Ex got it in the Divorce)… when I was out on my own I bought another one (think it was close to $ 500) its been running for around 10 years, just as well as the day I bought it.  Mr TTR says we’ll use it again when his finally dies.

We have a Roomba, which I swear by, but unfortunately it doesn’t do stairs/furniture/etc. We just got a Dyson DC26 for our wedding and I’m absolutely in love with it. It’s so light and tiny but it really works well.

By the way the one that I got was the Bissel Cleanview Helix. It was recommended by Consumer Reports and it works great. 

By the way, I had a Roomba before. I hate them.
