Vacuum Cleaner

I need to buy a new vacuum cleaner. I've had an Oreck for 5 or 6 years and I have never really liked it. Any suggestions? I was thinking about a Dyson. Does anyone have one of those. Thanks for the help.

No. I'd like to get one but I can't afford that much money for one

I had a pretty expensive bagless Hoover and it sucked, in a bad way. $369 down the drain.
Now I have a Eureaka that has the typical paper bag for the dirt and this thing sucks, but in a good way. Great for pet hair and some simple attachments that actually work. Amazon.com: Eureka 4870GZ Boss Smart-Vac Upright Vacuum: Kitchen & Dining

I got the Dyson Animal and it is great EXCEPT for one thing!!!! The motor that spins the brush makes a very loud shrill noise. My first Dyson it got really bad, so I took it back to BBB and exchanged it for a new one. I'm on my second one now and it is ok for now.

I asked my dad (sells and repairs vacuums and sewing machines) about Dysons and he said not to fool with them (he said the same thing about Oreck). He and my mom gave me a Panasonic a few years ago and I like it.
