Avg. consumer rating = 89/100 

The Miele S2121 Delphi canister vacuum is designed for bare floors and low-to-medium pile carpet.  It has variable suction as well as a host of other features. In addition, it has achieved an average consumer rating of 4.4 stars out of 5 suggesting that it is indeed well-liked by its owners.  The vacuum is also quiet, lightweight and not too large.  However, it does not come with a specialized bare floor tool (like it’s more expensive brother, the Titan) and some owners feel this is a drawback.

Dyson DC59 Animal Review

Avg. consumer rating = 96/100 

In some ways Dyson are the Apple of the vacuum world. They create innovative, exciting products designed to capture your imagination. The DC59 does not disappoint - it is versatile, light weight, portable and able to operate as an upright or handheld. It is bagless, cordless and has a lifetime filter, making consumables a thing of the past. In addition, the vacuum is capable on carpet, bare floors, upholstery and even pet hair. But you pay for such a product and at $500 it is one of the most expensive stick vacuums on the market today.


Eureka AirSpeed ONE AS2013A

Avg. consumer rating = 73/100 

The Eureka AirSpeed ONE (AS2013A) is inexpensive and rather cheaply made but it has tons of suction. This is a bagless upright where compromises have clearly been made in an effort to offer a unit that can be found online (at some retailers) for as low as $55.  The power cord is short, the fit and finish isn’t great and the dust canister is small.  However the unit is very lightweight and consumers report that the suction is rather astounding.


Shark Rocket Upright (HV302)

Avg. consumer rating = 84/100 

The Shark Rocket is a relatively new vacuum cleaner and is somewhere between a stick vac and an upright.  It is similar to the Dyson stick vacs, like the DC44, except the Dysons are smaller, lighter and cordless while the Rocket has a power cord. Dysons are also more expensive.  Consumer ratings are fairly good for the Rocket but not stellar.  Owners like that the machine has strong suction, is fairly maneuverable, and is effective at dealing with pet hair.  But it is a bit top heavy and can be hard on the wrist.


Bissell Big Green 86T3 Carpet Cleaner

Avg. consumer rating = 97/100 

The Bissell Big Green Deep Cleaning Machine is a rare animal - it is a carpet cleaner with absolutely top-notch consumer ratings.  Many carpet cleaners turn out to be a frustrating experience for owners and we have never before reviewed one that generated an average consumer score in the 90’s.  The Big Green scored a staggering 97.1 out of 100 and owners report that it does a fantastic job of cleaning carpet and upholstery.  It is also very easy and straightforward to use.  On the downside, the Big Green is a bit heavy and it doesn’t come cheap.

Oreck U2000R-1 Commercial Upright Vacuum

Oreck Commercial Upright

Avg. consumer rating = 89/100 

This is a no-frills upright vacuum designed to clean large areas of both carpet and bare floors.  It is a commercial unit but is frequently used by owners for residential cleaning as well.  It is very lightweight and quite powerful.  In addition the U2000R-1 has an ”industrial” length 40 foot power cord, but like many commercial machines it is loud.  Most owners feel the vacuum provides good value for your dollar.
