... my Dyson has passed away. Don't spare any tears - it has been well used and was old Have had two Dysons but am wondering if I can buy something less expensive this time. Any suggestions for an all singing all dancing upright gratefully received.
p.s. it has to be able to pat me on the back and present me with a latte and a biscuit after use

Well, I've got the Dyson ball one, and it's fab! Are you a member of Costco? Coz if you are they do 'em a bit cheaper there.

We replaced our Dyson DC04 with a Dyson Ball last year - I think dh bought it because Comet were doing them half price at the time. Miele come well recommended too - do a search on here as there have been a few threads in the past.

Nother vote for Henry here. Bog standard, nothing fancy but one hell of a suction and strong as a tank! I've been through too many hoovers recently with all the fancy bits that just broke or gave up the ghost.

Thanks everyone. Good old Henry eh? However I do want an upright so he's not a suitable option even though he has a lovely smile! Did try a search before kicking off this thread but obviously I didn't try hard enough. I will attempt another mumsnet search and maybe go to as well. Thanks for all your suggestions

my dh tried to buy a cheaper dyson-like hoover - bagless etc - it was a 'hoover' and it was cr*p. took it back after 3days and bought a newer dyson!

Don't know about uprights but Miele vacuum cleaners all seem to get rave reviews in the Which? report. Henry didn't do to weel at all in their tests. Think the Dyson all floors did ok too.

We've got a Miele - it's great. Makes our old one look like a total waste of space!
