    I don't know why people always use this argument, as far as I was aware you are supposed to change the filters on bagless vacuums regularly and the cost of doing that is about the same as buying the bags. I don't spend that much on bags.

    Dyson are washable filters I'm pretty sure? I use my MIL's Miele and I don't like it. I find it heavy and it has this stupid screw thing on the pole you have to empty on top of the bags. I want to vacuum to clean not bloody clean and vacuum such a pita!

    I have a miele and its brilliant. Far better than any bagless. I find bagless messy, much refer having bags personally.

    Bags cost me around $20 a year.Hardly a huge expense

    Yes your right, dysons have washable filters! I loved my dyson to bits i had an upright but as we don't have carpet just a rug (all floors are hard floors) it wasn't really necessary.

    Dont know what model ur mil has but mine doesnt have this. You literally press a button and slide the bag out and slide a new one in. Literally takes 5 seconds with no mess whatsoever. Quicker and cleaner than emptying a bagless

    The screw top thing on Miele vacuums are a useless optional extra, they are not necessary at all.
    I would say the washable filters still have a shelf life.
    I think people assume bag vacuums are messy (ridiculous, they are not messy at all unlike bagless which I find quite messy) and that you are off buying bags every week and spending hundreds of dollars. I rarely need to go buy bags, a four packs lasts me ages and is quite cheap.

    yeah that's how my Miele was too. No dust flying everywhere. I'm staying at my dad's and the vacuum here is a Dyson. It seems to need emptying fairly often as the catchment container is small (but it's a big Dyson, so I assume this is almost as big as they get). I HATE emptying it. Dust goes everywhere as I empty it in the wheelie bin, I have to hold my breath so that I don't breathe it in, and then you have loose vacuum cleaner dust in the bin .
    With the bagged vacuums, just slide the old one out, the hole closes over and pop it in the bin. No mess. No dust. I don't know why people like these darn bagless ones.
