These Vacuum-Cleaner-Reviews will help you decide which vacuum cleaner best suits your needs. Buying a vacuum-cleaner can be one of the most frustrating things in your life.

It should be simple, but there are so many models on the market today, in different price ranges that it can leave you feeling overwhelmed.

Reading customer reviews can be helpful, but with vacuum cleaners, more than any other product, that can even be a chore.

Sometimes you wonder if all of those people are actually reviewing the same model as some of them rave about it and its suction power, while others claim it won't even pick up air.

Unfortunately, buying the perfect vacuum for your home is often a case of trial and error and you have to go through several models to find the one that suits your needs.

Luckily, most places you buy from do have a return policy so you aren't stuck 

with a product that doesn't do the job.

We've done some research into vacuum cleaners and have picked out several styles and models to help you make your decision.

For these vacuum-cleaner-reviews, we've chosen two hand-held vacuums, two stick-vacuums and two upright-vacuums to help you decide which is best for your needs.

Handheld Vacuum-Cleaner-Reviews

Handheld vacuums have come a long way over the years, but this purchase can still be hit and miss. Depending on what features you like in a hand held vacuum, you may want to consider one of these.

This Eureka Hand-Held vacuum is inexpensive, light weight and has a powerful motor plus an on-board stretch hose that works great for cars, upholstery and stairs. It also comes with a crevice tool to get in tight corners.

One nice feature is called a riser visor which can be easily flipped to get the front side of stairs and the 20 foot cord is also convenient if you need to vacuum an area and there's not an outlet close by.

The Black & Decker CHV1510 Dustbuster is a great product if you're looking for a cordless model.

It has has a nozzle head to reach tight areas with a dust cup that offers a cyclonic action to keep dirt and debris away from the motor.

It comes with a charger which you can wall mount and is a great product for people with toddlers who need a quick pick up of the kitchen floor after meal and snack time.

For a stick-vacuum, they used to be extremely hit and miss with the power they offer, but like a handheld-vacuum they've also come a long way over the years. A stick-vacuum is great when you don't want to get out the big upright-vacuum for a small mess or despise using a broom and dust pan for your hard floors.

The Hoover Linx Cordless Stick- Vacuum Cleaner offers the ability to turn off the brush roller on hardwood floors so it sucks up dirt instead of scattering it like some models do.

It features Hoover's WindTunnel technology in a cordless model, so you don't have to wrestle with a cord each time you need to clean up a small mess.

The Hoover Linx is also nice looking and offers a sleek and stylish design, and who doesn't appreciate great design?

The battery life can be short with only about 15 minutes of power, but chances are with a stick-vacuum you aren't going to be using it on the whole house.

The Dirt Devil SD20000RED Simpli-Stik All-in-One is another stick-vacuum we reviewed. It's a corded model for people who aren't concerned about the convenience of a cordless model or who want to spend a little longer time running the unit.

One of the nice features about this Dirt Devil stick-vacuum is that it can also be used as a handheld-vacuum by removing it from it's stick base.

This is a great model if you're looking to get a two-in-one type unit which has the convenience of a handheld-vacuum and a stick-vacuum.

When we conducted our research for vacuum-cleaner-reviews we realized that if you have a larger home and need some heavy duty cleaning, you may be looking for an upright-vacuum cleaner. We've reviewed two models, one is compact and great for apartment sized areas of cleaning and the other is a full sized model that is great for big homes and/or pet owners.

The Dirt Devil Dynamite Bagless Upright-Vacuum is a compact model, being only 12 inches wide, it's a great buy for people who live in small houses or apartments and don't have as much area to vacuum.

It comes with on-board attachment tools and has a very convenient adjustable handle so whether you're tall or short, you can adjust the height to your comfort level.

This is a bagless system, which seems to be getting more standard these days and comes with a 25 foot cord so you have plenty room to move around without changing outlets all the time.

The Hoover WindTunnel T-Series Pet model is great for people who have pets and are constantly fighting pet hair. Several pet owners have raved about this machine for its ability to get tough pet hair out of the carpet and off the furniture.

It also comes with on-board attachments, one is a rubber bladed nozzle for helping to get the hair dislodged from your furniture, but one really nice feature is an auto-rewind cord. No more cord wrapping and unwrapping.

As the name suggests, this model offers Hoover's WindTunnel technology and comes with easy to clean HEPA filters with indicators to let you know when the filters need to be cleaned.
