Hi I am looking for an upright vacuum cleaner. Online reviews are misleading and you can get both zero or five star rating on the same product. So I am interested to know what vacuum cleaner have you used, liked and would recommend? Based on personal experience.

I have a Dyson (the yellow one) and I really like it. Bought it at Target when it went on sale. It has been reliable and easy to maintain.

My wife uses a Dyson too and loves it, we got it at a Sears that was going out of business at the beginning of last year for like 30% off, seems to have been a very good buy.

We have an Oreck that we got in 1998 that we are still using. My wife likes it because it is light and has good suction. I like it because changing the bag or belt is simple. If it died tomorrow I would buy another one.

We have a Hoover WindTunnel model that I would not recommend. The supposedly self cleaning HEPA filter has to been disassembled and cleaned about once a year.

We also have a DYSON ANIMAL and love it. I have had just about every other brand and nothing seems to compare.

Miele Vacuums

Miele is the one to get! Expensive, but they dont need to be replaced every few years like the cheap ones. Sold at Vacuum Center in W. Columbia. Best vac I ever had!

Haha...had to laugh, my wife fell for one of their "free cleaning offers" only to spend a full afternoon hearing their sales pitch, the guy started out telling us $2,200 3 hours later in a last ditch effort w/his manager brought in who had been patrolling the neighborhood the offer was slashed to $900...I was offended at that, nothing like trying to rip people off w/your first bid! While we were impressed w/the kirby, my wife was willing to compromise and get her dyson (and, she feels like her dyson is probably just as good as a kirby) for about a 1/3 of their 'final offer'!
