    Another vote for the Hoover V2, we have one and it sucks! [] (sorry i couldn't resist!) Anyhow we like it better than our old Rainbow, and its reasonably priced at Wally World.

    Curtis,

    If you have mostly hardwood and/or tile floors like I do, then I highly recommmend a backpack type vac (like the ones you see janitors using). It doesn't work on plush carpet, though.

    I have this model:

    It is very well built because it is really a commercial vac.

    thanks Derek! But right now I do not have much uncarpeted floor.

    I also just saw the prices!

    Yeah, but those are retail prices. I did some searching online and found mine for a little over $300. If you buy a decent vac from sears, you are probably in the $300 range anyway, and I think that is is a much better built vacuum.

    But, it you have a lot of carpet, then this type of vac doesn't work very well.

    an update....

    I just spent 40 minutes at Costco agonizing over which vacuum cleaner to get.

    During that time, I had nice chats with other Costco shoppers looking for a vacuum.

    I ended up buying the most expensive one, the Dyson. It has been getting RAVE reviews on the net(we all know the caveat to that []), and with Costco's grat return policy, I figured I would give it a shot.
