Geeks With Blogs
The Caffeinated Geek Tech Obsessed in Winnipeg

We are in need of a new vacuum.  Not my usual blog material, but I’m fishing for advice.


  • My daughter has asthma so a HEPA filter is a must.
  • Prefer upright to canister


  • Bag vs. bagless.  Our prior vacuum used bags and the expense of buying bags was never a big deal.  I could go either way.  Is there a benefit other than cost of bags?
  • Are Dyson worth the $500+ price tag?  Seems that there are bagless HEPA hoover, bissell, eureka and others for half the price or less.  I can afford the dyson if it is in fact worth it.


  • What vacuum do you have?
  • Are you happy with it?
  • What would you buy today?

G'day caffeinatedgeek, my wife has a Dyson and swears by it (not sure for your exact purpose though, with your daughter's asthma).

We were just talking about it the other day - she definitely would buy another if our current one died.

Cheers, Thomas

Dyson all the way.... I've had them for years now... never had one fail on me but have lost them due to marriage failures :)
