thanks all for the advice.. now most vacuum cleaners got hepa filter... what does it really do?

HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Arresting) filters are for trapping of very fine particles. Personally I feel there's a difference between a vacuum cleaner that has a HEPA filter and one that doesn't

I am using Dyson for over the last few months. so far so good. good suction, and they have various 'head' or 'attachments' for various surfaces. easy removal of the waste. supposedly also has ability to remove dust mites fm beddings. its pricer compared to a few other brands, but still much cheaper than Rainbow.

Hello Steelz

Yes, I fully endorse yr #1-4 criteria bcoz those were the impt factors I used too. And on top of those criteria, you may want to i/c add'l critieria:

6. bagless - VCs are superceded by newer models after 2-3 yrs; had trouble buying new bag filters for VCs bought few yrs back (i/c explanation for other readers' benefit)

7. HEPA filter - impt if you hv sick family members and you don't want them to breathe in dust generated by non-HEPA VCs.

8. HEPA filter should be washable - for easy maintenance and cost and in case cannot find replement HEPA filter in future for my model

9. sound - my VC is too loud, may not be impt for you

10. durability : corded vs battery-charged - opted for corded as battery-charged last only few yrs, then hv to buy another VC

11. reliability : go for well-established reputable brand - see another thread re unknown Shimnono brand (no worries, I know u go for good expensive brand!) :P

12. design, type of fittings or accessories included, cost, color, length of suction hose, length of electrical cord are considered, special features (eg vacuum dust mite) too

I finally bought a simple Philips Bagless VC with HEPA filter, cost abt $120-30 during promotion at HN. But came with non-washable HEPA filter, and vacuuming sound quite loud. So not all my criteria were met but ok for me bcoz it was my FIRST bagless VC and I wanted a cheap bagless one to experience first-hand b4 I buy a more expensive model with washable HEPA filters. Washable is impt to avoid hassle of looking for replacements in future as current models are superceded. Mfr'ers usually come out with new models after few yrs to "force" or entice buyers to shell out for another VC.

So far, after 1 yr usage, using only 2-3 times per week (i'm lazy! :D ) have had no single problem with it at all.

cheers

Go for Philips e.g. FC8734. cheaper and good. Most accessory are available in major store. If you want better vaccum , the price is above 1K . My older Philips vaccum cleaner last for 8 yrs.
