Arrow Any good yet inexpensive vacuum options?

The new house we are moving into on Friday has carpet upstairs and in the basement (hardwood and tile elsewhere), so I need to upgrade my vacuum. I was wondering if anyone knew of any less expensive vacuums that still work good with carpet + dog hair. I need to buy one in the next 3 days, so hoping someone has a recommendation for me.

I did a search on the site and everyone recommends dyson and my parents use it and are happy with it, so if I can't find something decent for less, I'll be buying the dyson animal. Couldn't find any threads specifically geared towards cheaper options... we are buying a bunch of new furniture so I am trying to budget.

So, any suggestions? I have a lot of space to vacuum now and two GSDs, so I need something good. Thanks guys! Very much appreciated!

We have a Rainbow Vacuum (expensive) and it is useless for GSD hair! So we use a Bissell day to day. Kinda noisy but it works. We got it at Walmart.

We are considering a Bissell too!

A few friends use and recommended the Eureka AirSpeed Bagless - anyone else use this one? It is in stock at the Walmart near my apartment.

I've had a hoover and a bissel. They did not have the suction power the shark has. They also got clogged with fur all the time. I have not had any problems with the shark so far.

Hoover® WindTunnel® 3 Pro Pet Bagless Upright

Very happy with this vacuum.

If you pay attention to ratings, the ratings are low; I haven't experienced any of the problems listed.

I will add though, that instead of washing the filter every 3 months as suggested, I have to about every 6 weeks if that long. With 2 dogs, their hair and the dust they track in, I am actually surprised it goes that long before washing lol. Yep, Woolf lets me vacuum him with it as well (even though instructions say not to )

Got it for about $150 at Walmart.

I got the Shark Professional Navigator and it's awesome. It has a lot of tools and features and works great cleaning the inside of my car as well!

I've had this vacuum for almost three years and there isn't anything this vacuum won't suck up off of the carpeting or hardwood floor.

I think it's one of the best kept secrets of the pet hair world. I don't think it would still be around if it wasn't any good.

Eureka AirSpeed Bagless Upright Vacuum, AS1000A

Comes with attachments and has a lot of features. Keep it away from anything you don't want sucked up.
