In addition to getting mid-range reviews in CR, I have heard several stories from people who've bought them and the Dyson lasted two years! Um, no, not for that kind of money.
We have an old Kenmore canister that's going strong, the suction is good. Consumer Reports recently did a vacuum round up and some of the Kenmores did pretty well. My only con is that I usually have to order the bags online--the closest Sears is not convenient--but I get them from Amazon and they're a decent price.
