  • Shark Professional is amazing.. it's like a Dyson knock-off the way it sucks and swivels. I use it on carpet and hard floors.. Got it at Costco for about $170, it also has a 5 year warranty. No bags!

  • Dyson is the only brand I will buy anymore. It's a much better investment than spending $100-150 every year, just to have a vacuum crap out.

  • Whatever you choose, get it at bed bath and beyond. You can exchange it for a new one no questions asked when it stops working. My friend works there. They will take back anything.

  • Depends what you are looking to spend and how long you would like to own it before replacing it again. I have a Eureka that is holding up very well. Might want to check out consumer reports. I can't afford a Dyson so I don't know if they are worth it or not. Most people I have talked to say dyson is not worth the money.

  • Never heard of the Rainbow; I'll have to check that out.

    The one I'd really like to have is an Electrolux canister, if they still work as well as my mom's did. Sfe had hers for something like 40 years!

  • Rainbow is the best out there..very pricey but you will never have to buy another one again. I have had mine over 20 years, and it still works as the first day, give it maintenance when necessary and it will serve you forever. It works with water, and you get to throw out the stuff it picks up with the can also use perfume or cologne in the water to have a clean smell as you vacuum..the suction is awesome!!!
