Vacuum cleaner.

 I am in desperate need of a new vacuum. Was curious to what you have and do you like it or not?

I am used to a Kirby growing up and I bought a cheap Bissell, so I don't have a good opinion on other brands.

 I have the Dyson DC14.  I love that it is easy to maneuver and there are very few things it doesn't get up.  And compared to the Bissell Healthy Home...it's like picking up a newborn after carrying a preschooler all day.

I'm not a big fan of the extensions.  I'd rather have the flexibility of a hose than the stick I have to use to get corners or clean up the couch.

Average Dyson price is $400-600

 I just bought a Hoover Nano Lite a few months ago, and I love it! It's lightweight, easy to use on stairs, and has really good suction.

Sebo if you want a true vacuum.  All the others are just cheap, carpet sweepers that don't get all the way down to the pad. I got mine here in my hometown from a vacuum center - not sure where you are but the Sebo website can refer you to someone near you!  Here's the one I have: http://www.sebo-vacuums.com/Products/x4x5.htm

Good luck!

I currently have a Eureka my mil gave me for Christmas a couple of years ago, but I HATE it! LOL, so I'm not any help here. ;)

Dyson!! Best vacuum I have ever had, I've had it for two years and it hasn't lost any suction. It also came with a 5 year warranty. Best part, my carpet always looks brand new! Lol

I have a kirby G3 that I got used at goodwill for $30, then I got the attachments for $20 on ebay. AWESOME vacuum! I highly recommend looking for a used one!

 I have a Eureka. Super cheap, lightweight, and heavy duty. I've been vacuuming since 10 years old and this is my favorite vacuum to date. They sell it at Target for like $70-$80. I just checked and it's $60
