vacum bags

i used to use a bagless vacume cleaner, but CR said it didn't clean carpet as well as bagged ones, and frankly, i agree.
word of warning though: be sure to put the bag on securely. i changed mine last night, and then after cleaning the stairs found that it came off. not a huge mess, but enough, plus the waste of a bag.

Actually, my 10 year old Fantom Fury cleans better than any bag vacuum I've ever owned. It's a bear lugging it up and down the steps (it must weigh 70 lbs.) but cleans really deeply.

Bagless dosen't mean maintenence free. You still need to periodically change the filters though not as often. If you do not, the suction will drop off. In a bag model, the bag is the same as the filter so it gets changed routinely (except by my cheap friend who empties bags to reuse them). Bag or bagless, there are good and bad models. its not fair to compare based on that one feature. Do both vacuums have the same size motor for instance (Amps). I like bagless because you 'll never have to rush out to the store just to clean the house (buy bags) before company comes over and many stores don't stock all brand bags. A filter can usually be temporarily cleaned using the vacuum itself.
