I know we talk a lot about Dysons and other high-end vacuums here, because… um, apparently because we are really concerned about vacuuming. Wow. Now I’m a little depressed.
If you want a decent vacuum but don’t want to go Dyson or Kirby or Electrolux, you might want to check out the Eureka R4870G Boss Upright. (That link goes to a refurb on Amazon that’s just $69.99 with free shipping!) This model is a Consumer Reports Best Buy, so a smart choice if you’re looking for a decent vac at this price point.
