    Vacuum cleaner just died - Any good deals?

    As above really.

    This one's only just out of it's warranty period and has never been much good, so I'm not sorry to see it go.

    Bagless vs bagged, upright vs cylinder? I'm pretty sure I'm not bothered as long as it does the job and is a reasonable price.

    Searching through the deals hasn't shown up many posted at the mo (at least not with any kind of heat). Just wondered if anyone had come across anything else?

    Thanks all

    bagless and cylinder! thats what i have and would recommend. i find it so much easier to use and dont have to buy new hoover bags all the time!

    i got recently a upright black PANASONIC MC- UG304 Can't fault it at all, but it is just a basic model I think! for £87.99 delivered from homebase with a discount code. They sell it at Argos for £89.99. Yes, I know I say its a basic model but what do you want it to do! just needs to suck up the rubbish off the carpet, yes you do have to put bags in it.

    Really, I use to hate hoovering before I got this one! but now I don't mind.

    My eldest son always empty's the hoover bag! It's not child labour he is over 18. LOL

    Anything specific, bagless and cylinder is what the last one was and as I say, was never particularly impressed (was a samsung, so would probably avoid those)

    upright Dyson, they are bagless and the warranty means that years later you call them and pay a fixed fee (£70 at the moment i think) and they come out and completely refurb the thing back to new condition...cant fault them

    Thanks for the advice guys, I've spread a little rep around.

    Th vax is tempting (seems a good price) but am thinking that going more expensive might be the way to go as the last 2 vacuums (both sub £100) I've had haven't really lasted. So my quick scan brings me to:-

    Dyson vs Miele/Bosch(I understand they come from the same factory) vs Henry?

    Any further thoughts

    Going bck about 15 years, I am now on my 5th Dyson. Currently have an allergy 'ball' one.
    I do like them, obviously, but they are very heavy and very noisy. Always have been.

    Last year we bought a Henry to keep upstairs and we all love it. It's solid, easy to use and so quiet and light to move around. If I was buying just one new vacuum cleaner I would buy a Henry.

    +1 have had various cleaners over the years and the Henry has been the best so far, the bag is huge, hardly needs emptying, it is quiet and has a long cord and long hose. You can pick one up for under £100

    currys are doing 25%of dyson when you trade in any old vacuum cleaner :thumbsup:

    I was tending towards the Henrys (good reputation, reasonable price) but had a look at the Which review. They put him on the 'do not buy' list!

    I keep going round the loop in my previous post..

    Henry - £100 odd
    Lower end Miele - £140 (ish)
    Dyson (Saw the DC32 animal for £200 at Argos, looks to be one of the best in their range)

    Bl*&dy hoovers!

    henry does the job u hate :thumbsup:

    Look at SEBO if you are after a really fantastic vacuum cleaner - not cheap but very good and long warranty.

    I bought a Miele for around the 180 mark i think. It was a red pearl edition so it came with a free 10 year warranty. Works like a charm.
    Plus I know a guy who works for them and he says he bought a refurbed one from the company for £80 about 8 years ago and it's still going strong.
    BTW mine is a bagged cylinder.
    The bag autoseals so you don't get dust flying around when you empty it, which is what put me off bagless a bit.
