Subject: RE: BS: Vacuum Cleaner Recommendations???...
I've had a Dyson and wouldn't buy another. Very messy to empty and the power cable never retracted without several attempts at pressing the button, pulling the cable out a bit, pressing the button again etc etc.

I now have a Miele (cylinder type model). It does need bags which are expensive but it is very efficient, clean to use and empty and the bags are large and seem to need changing infrequently. (I do try not to vacuum up dirt (like sawdust) that can be swept up and I pick up tissues etc. rather than vacuum them up). The tools fit into the cylinder body and the nozzle/tube has a hook that fits into a cradle in the cylinder body so they are kept neat when stored.

I wouldn't buy a Dyson again. I would buy another Miele.
