Thanks to reading some of the posts, we recently purchased a Dyson DC15 Animal Model. WOW - we never knew how dirty our floors were until we saw the stuff this thing picked-up. WOW - now the baby has clean floors to crawl on.

The DC15 is so well designed and cleans better than any vacuum we have owned to date. Our cleaning lady uses a different vacuum every day from each home owner, and she says ours is the best vacuum she has ever used. Well, proof is in the pudding.

We bought from a very knowledgeable on-line store:

www.vacuum-direct.com

We were directed their from a post on another forum. Ask for Todd, he was very kind and helpful and knew a lot about the vacuums. He saved us a few dollars, plus free shipping, plus NO TAX! We saved a load over buying at Sears or Best Buy.

We also had a friend recently buy a Dyson ater we bought ours from the same site. They are very happy.

Hope this helps anyone looking for a new vacuum.

Thanks

Someone please buy me a Dyson! DH sure won't let me buy one unless we win the lottery, :LOL which we never play.

I swear, I've seen a dyson knockoff somewhere that said it didn't lose suction, but I have no idea where.

So now, there's another option to concider. I chose the Riccar because the vacuum shop in my area sells and repairs them, which makes it conventient for buying filters and such.
I bought a Riccar and I love it. I bought it back when DH and I had long hair (DH's was *very* long) and I didn't have to pull hair out of the vacuum several times per vacuuming session. Now we have shorter hair so that is not an issue but it still does a good job.

ETA: I had a used Kirby in college and *loved* it except that it was so heavy.

I've been happy with by bosch, but then dh's vacuum broke down, so he took mine for cleaning the stove and I got a DYSON! So so so happy. Dh made fun of me until he used it, he thinks its pretty cool and he's picky about vacuums.

Anyone get one with a soft brush dusting attachment and don't use it and wanna sell it to me ? We sprung for the DC17 (you don't have to flip the handle around for the attachments), but it didn't come with the soft duster and I really want it for my blinds and the tops of some open walls.
