I always buy shite ones that look nice or have some snazzy gadget going on. And they never last.

Hence need a new one.

Please tell me what to do vacuum people of the world

After going through several fancy looking or sounding ones like Miele really quickly we bought a Henry and it is fantastic. 3 years and still doing fine - the longest one has ever lasted for us.

Sebo, had mine years and it's still going strong. And I recently discovered that I can buy bags etc in John Lewis so don't have to pay for delivery from Sebo themselves and any excuse to go to John Lewis, I'm there!

My Miele vacuum has been in the family since the 80's. It's starting to increase in value I am sure for being a collector's piece! It's big and boxy like an 80's BMW. If it were to die (god forbid) I'd just get another Miele no questions asked.

Gtech air ram. Its cordless and that means I can vacuum the whole house in about 10 minutes. Really cordless is the way to go which ever brand you choose.

Sebo again, excellent.

We have just got a Miele and it is amazing but it is v heavy. Not too bad for us as we only have one flight of stairs but if it might bother you, pick something different.

You can get lighter models of the Miele. It is definitely my favorite as a cleaner. Henrys are good but a ward on stairs due to shape.

Allofaflumble Sun 09-Feb-14 10:22:25

I meant a ward.

Why won't my tablet print awkward or I will say difficult on stairs!

My cylinder dyson has been going 11 years now. Still does a great job although could be better on pet hair (we have 3 so maybe I'm being unrealistic), I'm looking to treat myself to a new lighter model (DH struggles with the weight) and will be getting another Dyson and free cycling this one.

I did a lot of research into vacuum cleaners recently and went for a Sebo Felix from John Lewis. I've been really pleased with it. I'd have liked a longer hose but I know I can buy one of those if I really need to.

Gtech airram here too. Blitzes the house in minutes.

Hi, just popped over from Gransnet. Miele will collect and deliver, refurbish their cleaners and put in new parts all for around £90. Worth doing if you have one a few years old, cheaper than buying new. X

Samsung, great suction that cleans long dog hairs from thick carpet effortlessly

I love my dinky little lightweight Dyson DC24. Gets into all the little nooks and crannies.

Another vote for Sebo here
