  • I have a Dyson. the plain yellow one nothing fancy and i LOVE it! I have really old carpets and i feel like it cleans them really well. and i have carpet in my kitchen...which i HATE and its really thin and hard to clean with a vaccum. the vaccum does pretty good. It is bagless and very easy to pull the hose out and use the attachments. but it is not light, Ive had it for 2 1/2 yes now with no problems and i use it alot and im not easy on them!!

    also i have a swivel the infomercial ones. I got it at target, dont know if they still carry it but they do at menards. its like $30.i also LOVE LOVE LOVE it! very light, easy to recharge, cordless. and picks up everything. low maintence picks up hair, cheerios, raisons, and all that other crap! works on carpets and hardwoods. had it for 4 yrs, still works great!!

  • I also have the yellow Dyson and I do like it a lot, however now that we only have hardwood floors, I never use it. Dyson now has a lighter one and I would rather have that one, but it wasn't out yet when we got ours.

  • The only vacuum I've ever heard anyone say anything really positive about was the Dyson. It's funny that the two posts above me are complimenting the Dyson.

  • Dyson I heard IS really great, but if you're like me it would take you years to afford one, so in a pinch I trust my Dirt Devil, any kind any size . I have a small sweeper size on the top floor, and a big one for the main floor, and it never lets me down. My mom had a Hoover that nevr worked right and the belt was always breaking, and then she got Eureka and that vacuum blew up in 6 months. I convinced her to get a dirt devil and she's had it for over 2 years now.

  • Don't get a Bissell. Hate it. But my Kirby is too heavy to take up the stairs. I love my Kirby. Just wish it was lighter.

  • I have the Dyson Absolute Animal (I have 4 cats) and it is fabulous. It is pretty heavy though, so if being ultra-lightweight is a concern, you might consider the Oreck, which is a pretty good vacuum and is very light and easy to maneuver.
