That's it really. We need it to clean carpets and have a cat so a bit of fluff but not loads. A cylinder one would be best as house is small and there's not much room to store an upright. Would prefer bagless just because buying the bags is a pain but would consider otherwise if it's fab. Is a Henry a bag one? Like the idea of it but are they any good and where do you get the bags from?

I came on here to recommend a Henry grin They are brilliant, really powerful suction and I don't find the bag thing a hassle (certainly no worse than emptying the dyson - yuck!). Great size to store (we also have no storage 'tall' enough to store an upright). Bags are available from loads of places online smile

Thanks LifeOfKate. I've just been reading the reviews on Amazon and some of them are evangelial about the Henry. Such a good price too considering how long they seem to last.

sebo - built for quality.

Bunjies - yes, they are great, they might not be as fantastic as some of the other brands (I'm not including Dysons there, as they are terrible and a lot of money!), but for the price, they are amazing.

Miele Cat and Dog. It has changed my entire relationship with housework. I LOVE IT.

Sebo- last for years, so worth initial cost, even if they seem more expensive.

Henry or Nilfisk. Do Not Under Any Circumstances buy a Dyson. They are shite.

Miele cat and dog are very good.My dp has a henry for work(he is a builder) and on the odd occasion I have used it when he has done building work at home and it doesn't compare to my miele.

Would highly recommend Sebo. Mine's an upright, but they do make cylinder vacuum cleaners too. Their bags are good quality, strong and last well, and it's easier to empty than a Dyson.

Yep Henrys are great, I used to work at a wholesaler and got so much good feedback on them and as said above, under no circumstances...dont buy a dyson cylinder, what utter rubbish!!!
