    About a month ago, my vacuum suddenly broke down while I was cleaning my apartment!

    I have found two vacuums at Wal-Mart that have caught my interest:

    #1) Bissell Powerforce Bagged Upright Vacuum 71Y7
    #2) Bissell Powerforce Bagless Upright Vacuum

    Both vacuums are highly rated on Wal-Mart's website and while #1 costs $39, #2 costs $46.

    But at the moment, the price of these vacuums is not what I'm worried about.

    My concern is which one do I choose: the bagged vacuum (#1) or the baggless vacuum (#2)?

    Never thought i would see a thread about vacuum cleaners on this website.

    I would go with the bagless much less of a hassle to empty.

    I agree on both counts.

    We have a bagless now, and I'd NEVER go back to a bagged sucker. So much easier to deal with.

    Bagless is a lot better, but I'd pay more and get a Dyson. Yes it seems like a lot but you will notice the difference in performance massively.

    My other thought on entering this thread was "you haven't vacuumed your apartment in a month? Ewwwwwwww!" :lol

    Bagless. You will save money on not having to buy bags. Hell of a lot easier to empty out too.

    Hold up, I never implied that I haven't vacuumed my apartment in a month! :inquisiti 

    I still have my Dirt Devil Hand Vacuum! That should somewhat help me out until I finally buy one of the two regular Vacuums I found at Wal-Mart. :cool:

    I have a Dyson and I love it. But for a guy looking at $40 vacuums, kinda would be hard to get him to consider one that is around 10 times the price.

    I would choose bagless as you don't have to worry about replacing the bag all the time. People who like bagged ones say it's cleaner to remove the bag and throw it straight in the trash whereas a bagless one you have to dump the contents in the trash which can cause dusts flying around if your not careful. Easy solution to the latter though is just wrap a trash bag around the opening of the canister and pour the contents out. If you wrap it well enough dust won't come out much around the area.

    Wow, that much over in the States? Here in the UK they start around £120 (so, what, $180-ish?). They run to much higher of course but certainly don't start around $400 :eek:

    well, you can find one here for around $300 on some sites/stores either on sale or refurbished (I bought my DC25 new but on clearance for $315). But for the most part, yeah they start around $400 for uprights and canisters. Cheaper for the handhelds of course.

    Wowza.

    Yeah, maybe go non-branded then. They're good but I wouldn't pay $400 for one unless it did the god damn cleaning by itself. *insert girlfriend joke here*
