@lichme ha ha. I’m a dude and vacuum about as often as my wife. Or maybe it’s 60/40. M But let’s face the facts buddy. Women buy more vacuums then men do. May not be politically correct, but it’s the truth.
@somf69 Actually, I went from having a really shitty vacuum to a shark rotator (which I really like), and the first few times I used it, I had that look “yay, this is fun” look on my face. Then I remembered I was cleaning, and it wore off.
@somf69 the other day i walked in on my hubby vacuuming while he was dancing around to “Can’t stop the feeling.” i nearly dropped what i was carrying. I have a great husband, but at nearly 50, you dont expect that. it made me smile for the rest of the day.
I’m sorry, but I’m completely over bagless vacuums. The current generation wants something “new” and “improved” and “innovative”.
But bagless vacuums DO NOT SUCK. Sure, they “don’t lose suction” as Dyson proudly brags. But they have lousy suction to start with! They’re like a bagged vacuum that is perpetually full of dirt and has lousy suction.
So. Do you want a bagless vacuum that maintains a consistently sucky suction? Or do you want a bagged vacuum that has great suction with an empty bag but by the time the bag is full is at the same sucky performance as your favorite bagless vacuum?
@stinks I went to the bathroom while the Kirby guys were pitching my wife and I researched kirby vacuums independently and decided that they were well built machines that were built to last and that I could talk them down to maybe 800. We compromised at 900.
@aknapp Yeah, that was my biggest turnoff. I hate the sales techniques. But in reading reviews and seeing it pick up the stubborn pine needles in my carpet that my dyson struggled with, I was convinced and went for it. I hope to never buy a vacuum again in a very long time. We were already on our second dyson. Bagless vacuums just need more maintenance!
500 dollars though! Man, I should have shot lower and met him in the middle.
@daveJay I just don’t like how they have to demo at least 100 of the stupid pads to show it is picking up dirt. It wasn’t about actually showing how well it worked, it was about meeting the quota or something for a trip. He offered the 500$ deal if I bought 3 of them. I was very tempted to just buy 3 and sell 2 of them. Oh well. My Grandma has a Kirby and I do have to say they are a good vacuum. Heavy but good.
As the owner of pets and a fleet of Neato BotVacs and iRobot Roombas I need a good vacuum to clean out the dust bins of my robot vacuums, and the Dyson Cinetic Animal is what I use to get them clean!!! The 230AW of suction power really gets the Neato allergy filters clean with no effort!!! The detachable hose on the Dyson clicks with a giant satisfaction into the incuded combination tool to really get all the debris out of the Neato and Roomba canisters!!!
When I need to clean my Dyson Cinetic Animal I reach for the Shark Powered Lift-Away… it cleans the 1/2 gallon Dyson bin in no time flat! Kudos to Shark for making the perfect Dyson vacuuming vacuum!!!
In for 4 in Green and of course I got VMP, it cleans away high shipping costs!!!
Kirbys are WAY too Heavy IMO… I have a shark, but not this model, I paid 99.00. NV335, It’s a Professional lift away. A little different. My Son Loved it, I could actually get him to Vacuum. It does quite a nice job. Makes me ashamed every time I use it… LOL Who knew my dogs shed that much? I differ in the opinion that bagless units do not suck. Mine works great, and I don’t have to chase down and pay for bags. The only thing I have noticed is, the filters need to be washed to knock the smell out.
@Thumperchick Having used both. They are both good vacuums. We ended up with 2 Dysons, one bought here. We have the corded animal and the cordless battery version. Both suck up litter and she loves them so who am I to judge. Happy wife and all that shit.
I am floating a conspiracy theory. On my phone, the deep red of the buy button looked black. I thought this was a sell out and I missed something good. Thankfully, i was wrong. But is it possible that the sharp minds at Mediocre Labs know that the button could look like a sellout to create relief and impulse purchases?
