I've been looking at vacuums lately. Just looking...not seriously buying yet. It's on my birthday list, and Hubby says I need to be more specific instead of just putting "vacuum".
I currently have a Hoover Windtunnel Light (upright with bag), and despite the fact that the hoses are cracked and accessories chewed and broken, the suction is still decent. Actually, I've never had anything to compare it to, so it could be downright horrible for all I know. I just thought it might be time to upgrade soon, maybe get a vacuum that doesn't stink up a room if I suck up old Cheerios and then run it a few days later.
Right now I'm eyeing the Dyson DC14, a great vacuum for us allergy sufferers. However, at over $500, I'm thinking that it's waaay out of my league.
SO - I need ideas! I can research vacuums all day, but when it comes down to it, I like to hear what others have, what they've tried, bagged vs. bagless...that sort of thing. So, bring it! Your opinion is needed and appreciated! :o)
