Dyson DC14 Origin
Advantages: bagless, great suction, easy to use
Disadvantages: quite heavy & noisy
I have had a Dyson for over 10 years now and probably wouldn't switch to a different brand. After my first one finally died I looked around for a new hoover that would suit my flooring (wood downstairs and carpet upstairs). The DC14 has a switch that you move with your foot which lifts up the brush bar when hoovering smooth floors such as wood and lino, or lets it down to hoover carpet. This works brilliantly. It has great suction and picks up everything.
The vacuum cleaner has side bristles which help it pick up bits right at the edge of your carpet and I find that the front is low enough to get quite a way under furniture.
There is a long hose attachment for hoovering up the stairs. 3 attachments for this come as standard and are stored on the hoover. I got a couple of extra ones thrown in when I purchased mine but to be honest I don't really use them all.
It is really easy to empty the dirt. First of all as it is bagless you can see everything you pick up. (very useful if you think you have sucked up something you didn't mean to as you can often see it through the clear plastic). There is a quick release mechanism to remove the cylinder full of dirt and then you just hold it over your bin and pull the red handle which makes the bottom flap open to release the dirt.
You probably should clean this every so often but to be honest I don't.
On the negative side I would say that the vacuum cleaner is quite heavy - I don't find this a problem when hoovering just lugging up the stairs. It is also quite noisy. I find that the brush bar gets clogged up with hair a lot which I need to cut off and remove every month or so - however I do have a lot of long hair and at least it shows the hoover is picking it up!
Summary: Excellent - easy to use and picks up everything
