Good Questions: Best Vacuum Cleaner for Small Spaces?

Jaime asks:
I've been looking for a new vacuum cleaner ever since my Eureka died after 10 years of good use. I live in a 500 square foot apartment, so something that works for a small space would be great. Any recommendations, Unplggd?

Hey Jaime,

It's been a while since we've covered the topic of vacuum cleaners, so we greatly appreciate this question. Plus, it'd be interesting to see what kind of recommendations we can get from our fellow readers on this one for a more diverse answer for you.

While Dyson vacuum cleaners have a tendency to receive polarized acceptance from the consumer market thus far, we've personally our Dyson DC12 Stowaway unit to be one of the user-friendliest and well-designed products we've ever purchased. We got it a while back for about $500, but we think the Dyson DC23 would probably be better bang for the buck at this point. If you're lucky, you can find it for about the same price - $500 - when it's on sale.

Have a good recommendation? Let us know in the comments!
