    i think was a thread like this a little while back, but anyway
    we got a "Hoover Hygiene with hepa" with a power head for carpet!
    its a bag vac, coz when we went in asking about bagless the guy said you really gotta clean the filters after each use, which im not up for so we went for the bags, but we got the cloth bags. they hold SOOO much dirt and stuff, our floors hadnt been done in about 6mths when we got ours and it did upstairs and downstairs about 3 times b4 the bag was full! it was about $500 from godfreys, but they also do a payment plan with certegy (sp??) so its only $19 a fortnight for 12mths. with only like a $30 deposit!!

    its a great vaccum cleaner. i would recommend it. but i highly recommend a power head for use on carpets!! they get the dirt out SOOOOOOOOO much better than just normal heads!

    We have an LG Shark it's upright and i love it. By memory we paid $320. We're also upgrading to a Dyson swivel ($850) but only because we can and they look cool

    If i could buy whatever vac i wanted, i would get a Kirby but i can't part with 3k just for a vacuum

    Iv got a Vax power 4000 wet & dry vacume. It does a really good job at both vacuming & shampooing though I rarely can be bothered to shampoo the carpet anymore, Im flat out getting the time do do the vacuming as it is.

    Um, we have something really dodgy that we were given for a wedding pressie. About 1400 watts, goes through heaps of disposable bags...

    Who has a kirby? I lived with a girl who earned commission while at Uni selling them and I thought the whole set-up was so dodge. They cost $3k!!!

    Dyson upright, and I love it.

    I was about $900, but I think they have come down a bit in the last few years.

    Bagless, very thorough, and none of the "hot dust" smell that some cleaners give off.

    We have a Dyson Upright Bagless. No need for wattage as it never loses suction. We got it on special at Harvey Norman for $480. It is absolutely wonderful. so easy to empty and filter only needs washing about every 6 months depending on usage.
    When we bought ours we had vacuumed a week beforehand and had to empty it after doing just our lounge room and entrance way.
    As you can tell i love my Dyson!!

    I bought a $150 bagless one from K-Mart less than a year ago and it was good for about 3 months then lost its guts. I cleaned out the filters ect regularly, just dosent last long. Ive recently had timber flooring installed throughout which is so much more hygenic so bye bye vacuuming. Anyway, my advice would be to spend the money and get a good one from a proper vacuum cleaner retailer.
