Vacuum recommendations?

My vacuum is on his last legs and I'm looking at getting a new one. Now, if it were up to me, I'd get a Dyson! LOL But I realize that spending $500+ on a vacuum just doesn't fit our current budget. :)
I've been doing some research on Bissells, mostly b/c that's my current vacuum and he lasted a solid 7years before dying on me. And his death is mostly due to negligence on my part. I think I only cleaned his filters twice in his 7 years.
I'm currently looking at the Bissell 89Q9 Lift-Off Multi-Cyclonic. It's marketed as a "pet hair" vacuum, but that's not a selling point for me since I don't have pets. Although I do shed a lot. :)
Does anyone have this vacuum? Any pros/cons? Or do you have another vacuum you could recommend?
Thanks so much!
