dyson's are not the way to go...too expensive, shoddy construction. difficult to use the onboard attachments. 2 clients in 2 years that have replaced dyson's due to issues with the machines.
orecks are great for carpets. no onboard tools.
both brands are way too expensive and i agree with the efficiency of the panasonics. they are fantastic. super suction, great onboard tools with a long hose to get up stairs, etc. , long power cord blah, blah.
my dream vacuum is the sebo...way too expensive. vacuums flat, terrific onboard accessibility but the panasonic is the second best.
