Yep. Another vote for Dyson from me too. I've had mine for almost 6 years and it's still going strong. I'd recommend getting one with the turbine (spinning) head. Great for carpets. I've only had to replace the head on it as my ex roomate broke it other than that I can't fault it. At least you can buy parts for it online if you need to
Yep totally Dyson, the only thing I would say bad about them is that I've heard bad things about the upright models, I have the old DC23 and I it, well worth the money (eventhough Kevin07 bought it for me ).
