I am very sorry to start this thread yet again. I searched the web site trying to find the previous thread on vacs. I think I need to purchase a new vac soon so thought I would ask the experts you guys !!!! thanks
I have a Sears Cannister Vacume and love it.
Here's the link to my thread about my dissatisfaction with the Dyson and other's reviews on vac's.
we love out Dyson! Only had it for about 4 months now.
Just ordered the Hoover self propelled (with a bag), it's my 3rd one and I've been happy with them. I purchased mine on Overstock.com and got a great price!! It is rated better than Dyson and costs less than half the price on overstock!
I'll second the vote for the Hoover self-propelled with a bag! I got mine at Costco for $249.
I have a Hoover self-propelled for the basement and a Kenmore Progressive for the first floor. I am happy with both of them. Last I checked, Consumer reports rated them #1 and #2, respectively.

Throw the ball, damn it!
We've had our Dyson (DC14, Animal) for almost 2 years now. I wouldn't trade it for anything. We previously had a Kenmore cannister. It never seemed to pick up all the dog hair. I like not having to buy bags. I like that I can clean it by running it under the faucet.
I have a Dyson Ball DC15. I LOVE IT!! Honestly, I enjoy vaccumming with it. It does an amazing job. I can't believe how much hair it picks up. I would recommend "The Ball" to anyone. It's worth the extra money.
