We bought the Dysons Ball. I agree that it’s ridiculously expensive, but it’s worth it. We bought it especially for our hardwood floors and it’s great. Also, we got some christmas wiring stuck in it and they replaced it for free; I’m pretty sure it has a lifetime warranty. We justified the price by considering how many vacuums we’ve had to replace over the years. If this one lasts 10+ it was worth the investment.

Sorry that’s not exactly the advice you’re looking for! πŸ™‚

Right now we have the Dyson DC-14 – we registered for it and were lucky enough that someone bought it for us…it was close to $400 but worth it

Before we had the Dyson we had a Bissell Pet Hair Vacuum that I think was around $150-175 and it worked really well. However it just could not handle the amount of hair that was coming off of our 3 pets!

Its also true that we have gone through several vacuums but the Dyson has a lifetime warranty and is just made better so you aren’t going to ever have to replace it. I would love to have the Dyson pet hair or Dyson ball but even our basic Dyson works wonders!

yeah our dyson ball rocks but the price tag was less than stellar. we killed our old vacuums (2 of them!) with all the cat hair and the dyson puts up a fight and wins every time. But since you don’t have pets, I imagine you could just go to Target, buy just about anything, and be fine. My cheapo vacuums were FINE before we had pets.

@hilsy85: Bissell is a good name brand overall so I would definitely look for something from them. Go to Target and just compare vacuums side by side – thats how we always did it!

Dyson ball baby!!! You don’t need to have pets to want a good thorough cleaning of your carpets. It really sucks the dirt out well.

A friend had a dyson, and he said it was the worst $400 they ever spent. We go through vacuums every 6 months so I was definitely doing my research when buying our latest, which I LOVE and which was under $100

This thing vacuums like nothing I’ve ever seen, the bags last for months before you need to refill. The suction is great, it is LOUD but with good reason because it does the job. Comes with a bunch of attachments, and because its so popular, the replacement bags are so easy to find. I don’t know how many times we had to go buy a new vacuum just because they didn’t sell the replacement filters anymore.

I have a Hoover Wind Tunnel and LOVE it!  Even better, it was on sale at Target several weeks ago for only $99.  We had considered getting a dyson, but the one person I know that has one says it’s a pain in the butt w/ new homes (due to new electrical systems on new homes).  He said whenever he turns on his dyson, it flips a breaker elsewhere in the house.  Another co-worker highly recommended the Hoover, so we went with that and couldn’t be happier.

@hilsy85: No not at all, the front just snaps off and the bag comes right out and doesn’t even make a mess. I vacuum every day and I change bags maybe every 4 months. And we have a cat and a chinchilla so they can make quite a mess.
