i have the dyson animal and LOVE it. I love it mainly becuase I have had it for 3 years and it still works like it origionally did. I had a high end kirby before that and it was great new but i felt it lost its umph over time. However, like you, we are in the process of moving upstairs to a 1 bedroom appt with hardwood floors and I have decided that a swifer is the way to go. I love my dyson for the upholstery still, but nothing gets it really clean becuase its hard to form suction on hardwood.

Yes, my Dyson kicks some major dust-bunny booty…lol Cool And I have the cheapest one they make…dunno the model number…it’s yellow..lol…And it can adjust for tile and hardwood.

I saw that Sears sometimes sells the demo models for like $150 off the price when a new one come out.

We have the Dyson animal ball vac and it’s amazing. If price isn’t an issue, I totally suggest it.

we bought a small cordless (rechargable) dyson with our wedding money.  it’s great.  we don’t have any carpeting or pets.  it’s great for quick pickups or a full vacuum.  as good as the central vac i had.

my husband loves it so much, he uses it every day.  best purchase ever.  why didn’t we get one sooner?

I have an Electrolux Ergorapido. It’s a two-in-one cordless stick vacuum with a handheld built in. I love how easy it is to just pick it up and do a touch-up clean, or a full clean. Since I have gotten it I have been looking for excuses to vacuum! Tongue Out

We were in the market for a new vacuum when my 15 year old one decided to spark at me when I plugged it in one day, no bueno!!!! Since we have a 2 story house with all tile downstairs and carpet upstairs not only did I need one that could clean both surfaces good but lightweight enough for me to carry up and down the stairs.

After some research and reading reviews I chose the Hoover Windtunnel “air” and absolutely love it. It was super easy to put together and when I used it on the area rug in the livingroom I thought it would swallow the whole thing, it was very powerful. It cleans the tile great and even has a feature to shut off the roller bar to just have suction (good for wood floors too). The attachments are all onboard and the hose it pretty long. I’m able to plug into one outlet and vacuum the whole upstairs. Same downstairs. It makes it convenient when you don’t have to plug/unplug.

Overall, I’m very happy with our choice and would recommend the Hoover Windtunnel “air” to anyone looking for a new vacuum. Good luck!!

I live in an apartment with hardwood floors and I got this as a wedding gift:

I think it was $60 and I love it! It’s perfect for picking up crumbs and hair and so easy to use since it’s cordless. It works great on our area rugs too. I don’t think I would recommend this if you had all carpet cause I’m not sure how thorough it would clean it, but it rocks for hardwood!

If you’re not looking to buy an expensive vacuum- I have a Eureka Pet Expert- I LOVE it.  I got it on sale at Best Buy last Nov. for under 100 dollars.  Totally worth it- I couldn’t believe the amount of junk it pulled/pulls out of our carpet.  I have a dog that sheds like crazy- and it helps a lot!

We have a Rainbow e-machine. VERY pricey, but totally worth it in our opinion. It’s excellent on hardwood floors.

I swear by Oreck. I worked for a nationally known cleaning service in college and we used Oreck. They did a great job and never broke….even after being used all day, everyday. I currently want the hand held one that straps to your back! #awesome
