We just came back from WAL*MART and i was looking at the HOOVER FUSION,DIRTDEVIL REACTION,BISSELL HEALTHYHOME vacuum. For one thing,a real healthy home should have a bagged vacuum, not a bagless. Two, I think their were eight cyclones, like it would have the same suction as a dyson. The hoover fusion was only $98 and it looked to be well built except for thier is no HEPA filter. The dd reaction was $99 i think? but I did not like the looks and feel of the materials. I would reccomend the healthyhome but!!! I would never buy it nor reccomend it because bagless is not better and you are creating a filthy,germy enviroment by emptying the contaner.

First of all, none of the above vacuums mentioned work ANYTHING like a Dyson.

The Bissell Healthy Home does NOT use tapered high efficiency cyclones, a REQUIREMENT in a bagless cleaner. The filter in the Bissell clogs with less than one cup of dust (bar b que pit ashes), while the Hoover can't even get half a cup before clogging. The Reaction uses single speed cyclones, and loads the filter in normal use, with dust leaking PAST the filter, just like the Fusion. NONE of the above cleaners are good choices, as they are trying to copy the LOOK of the Dyson with the performance.

Our club's Dyson picks up more dirt at the conventions than any other machine there. It doesn't lose suction and doesn't spew out dirt (the way that bag cleaners do - as we have photos of bagged cleaners at the convention just spewing dust).
When someone tells you that bagless is not good, they have NO IDEA what they are talking about. They lump all bagless together, and they should NOT.

If anyone REALLY wants to know the truth, come to the convention and use your own eyes. Our club Dyson proves, YEAR AFTER YEAR, to be a powerful, easy to empty without flying dust, excellent cleaner. THAT'S why we use it as the state of the art machine to judge the cleaning contest.

So does the Dyson outperform the Iridium as well? You state that the Iridium is the BEST vacuum available right now--how does it fare vs. the DC07?

Is the VCCC going to upgrade to the Dyson DC17 vacuum for their state of the art machine?
That thing cleans like nobodys business with the RootCyclone System and agressive brushroll!

Tom, I agree--it doesn't take rocket science to figure out that none of the Dyson clones work. We had a GE (Wal-Mart) bagless upright (bought in 2002) for 2 years, and its performance gradually dwindled with the passing of time. I would wash that pleated filter out CONSTANTLY, with no signs of improvement. Needless to say it ended up getting junked.

Because of my recent vintage/NOS purchase (more on that in a couple of weeks), I won't be buying a DC17 anytime soon like I had hoped, but I do plan on having one by early next year so I can take it to the Omaha Convention. I REALLY want to put one to work and see how well it performs!
