Hey guys, what are your favorite stick vacuums?

I had a Dyson V8- we loved it as it was super convenient. The casing around the handle is cracked, so basically when it breaks all the way through. I wonít be able to use it anymore. It has been used a ton, so I guess Iím not surprised itís breaking.

I have a rainbow E2 Gold and a Miele upright and I could revert to using those. But I like the convenience of grab and go- especially when I have 3 young kids.

I thought of another dyson. Or Miele triflex. Thoughts?

I really like the Hoover Platinum Collection LiNX. Usually I'm pretty critical with cordless vacuums but if I did had to buy any cordless stick vacuum that I would use for myself personally, it'd be that one. Unless if it's for harder to reach areas, then I would get the Dyson V8 if the price is right for me as I believe it's not worth paying THAT much for it.

I might be in the minority but I've been a fan of Dyson cordless vacuums. I had a V8 and currently have the V11 Torque Drive. I reach for it all the time despite having a Miele C3 Marin, MD central vac with Hide a Hose, Shark UpLight and an Oreck Magnesium. It's very convenient for managing dog hair on the couch and the floors. It won't replace a regular vacuum but it's super handy.
I've wanted to try the Miele Triflex but then I read the reviews on Amazon and it seems like people aren't fans overall. I'm hopeful Miele takes the feedback and makes some refinements for future models. I really like how Miele designed it to be able to stand upright on its own. That to me is the biggest downfall of the Dyson. Still, I'll always have a cordless Dyson.

My favourite cordless stick vac is the Swiffer Sweep and Vac....simple, cheap and uncomplicated - though it's only for cleaning bare floors.

I have a cordless Shark Rocket, the cheapest model. Its was $160 at Walmart and so far has been my favorite cordless vacuum as it is an excellent value. The higher up models add some nifty features but I don't think they're worth the cost, at that point I'd rather buy a Dyson. The Shark has a decent warranty and it's cheap enough that if (when) it breaks it won't be the end of the world, it cleans surprisingly well and has decent filtration. Easy to maintain too. The runner up to this one in my opinion is the Shark Ion P50, it was a great machine but too expensive for a Shark IMO.

For reference I have owned many other recent cordless machines, including some Dyson models, a Miele Triflex, Bissell Icon Pet, Samsung, and a Simplicity Freedom Cordless. The Dyson cleaners are better in some ways but not enough to justify the huge price difference compared to the Shark to me. I had extremely high hopes for the Triflex but it really let me down, I don't think it cleans as well as the Shark or Dyson models and the bin is relatively small compared to the competitors. I despise the dust cup design actually, the intake is below the bin in such a way that it's easy for some dust to be knocked into the motor when removing/reinserting the bin. Last I checked Miele did not offer replacement post motor filters and the filter in the machine is inaccessible since Miele claims it is lifetime. That is simply not how filters work, it will eventually become clogged and need replacement especially considering the poor design of the dust bin. In my eyes this post motor filter situation means Miele has intentionally limited the life of this machine which is extremely disappointing.

The Samsung, Tineco, and Bissell ICONpet just don't clean carpets well at all. The Simplicity is a good machine for its purpose but it is a but limited to carpet and floor cleaning only, no above the floor use.
