I HATE, HATE, HATE, how loud most vacuums are. I just threw my last one in the trash and need to replace it.

I'm over the price of Dysons as I don't think they're worth the added price. I've owned 4 since they came out.

What does everyone else use/recommend?

Also, I want a cordless one for the kitchen for during the day. I used to have a Swivel Sweeper that I loved until I took it apart and didn't get it back together right.

I couldnt bring myself to buy a Dyson since I have all hardwoods and tile in my house but I needed a vacuum for the area rugs so I researched a ton and found the reviews to be higher/better with the Shark and the price was more in line with what I thought a person should comfortably pay for a vacuum cleaner.

Anyways after owning it for a few months now, I have to say I really do love it! Lightweight, easy to use on both bare floors and carpet, the head comes off so I can lift it up high and vacuum off my ceiling fans etc....

This is the one I bought:

Oh, it's not cordless though but honestly the cord is super long so it wasnt a deal breaker for me.

I think you can buy a similar model that IS cordless though.

I getting ready to buy a new one myself! I think I'm sold on Shark, just can't decide which one. I like BC's and also looking at the Navigator.

I have a dyson and a shark. I like the shark MUCH better. It has better suction, is more convenient to use and is easier to keep the vacuum itself clean. Plus, MUCH cheaper than a dyson.

I love Shark, too! I have a Navigator and a Rotator. The Rotator is their "top of the line" vacuum, but the main difference is a bigger dust cup and headlights (and, I bought mine from the Shark website and got a bunch of extra attachments AND a steam mop for FREE). I like it much better than Dyson or Hoover. For under $1000, Shark wins.

I have a hoover wind tunnel. My sister cleans professionally and loves Shark.

I use a swivel sweeper, it is easy for my 3 year old to use. I also have a Bissell sweep up sweeper downstairs, it is the quietest one you will find.

I ordered the Shark Rotator for my main vacuum. According to FedEx, it's out for delivery.

I am going to buy the Bissell sweeper for the kitchen for after meals.

Wondering how you like your Shark, Sharlan? I'm still in the market for a new vacuum but usually just buy cheap and replace every few years. I don't like paying outlandish prices for vacuums.

I really liked the Swiffer cordless sweeper. The first one I had lasted forever but then the handle broke so I got another one which stopped working after a year. Maybe I just bought a dud? I really loved those machines Now I just use a broom!

Every vacuum I have ever used is loud as heck so I cannot help you there.

I absolutely love my Shark. I bought the powered head lift away one and it's probably 5 years old now and it works as good as the day I bought it.

I will say you need to keep up with filter changes, which keeps it going strong. I normally just buy a pack on Amazon of 1 HEPA and 3 of the foam/felt filters for 15-20 dollars and throw them away when I'm done. The pack lasts a year.

I think I paid $250 or so for it when it was new, so it's been a good value.

I've had two Dysons and they are not worth the money, IMO.

I bought my son the Bissell® MultiReach Stick Vacuum, at Target, for his new place. Its really good and 1/4 the price of the Dyson.

We got a cordless stick Shark vacum just before Christmas when our old vacum past away.

I love it it's so easy to pull out and do a quick vacum after snack or when we drag to much outside in. We mostly have lamite floors and a few area rugs in our house. It was around 300 but got it for closer to 200 Canadian.

We upgraded our floors to laminate wood flooring. So I got a Shark, similar to the one BC pictured but in blue. The blue one has the two rollers and two speeds. One speed for carpet and another for other flooring.

I still have my hoover, but I sent it downstairs for the carpet and stairs.

We caved since this thread was first started and ditched the Shark.
My DD loves it but it just wasn't doing the job at my house. (2 cats and a lab )

My DH and I save up the Target gift cards you get when you buy 3 of this/that or spend $50 in household etc... sales and we managed to save quite a bit of $ in cards so we bought a Dyson V8 cordless stick vac.

I know it's been said that they're not worth the money....but so far, I have to disagree. I love mine!! It is super easy to use and does a great job of removing the hair. The only down side so far is that I get a blister on my thumb when using it (from reading reviews it seems to be fairly common) but I have noticed the new ones have a redesigned handle so maybe it's not an issue anymore... I don't know.
