Shopping for something online can be a bit like a treasure hunt; you may have a good idea of what you're interested in purchasing, but you continually find little trails that lead you down different paths. Sometimes those paths turn up treasures, but most of the time you spend hours reading through boring reviews that aren't truly relevant to your needs. Great news! We've done the hard work for you and analyzed thousands of vacuum cleaner reviews to provide you with the top-rated models on the market based on what you truly care about — how well vacuums clean and how easy they are to use. Here are some big winners from our deep dive into these personal reviews.
The Oreck Insight is a top-rated model from a brand that's been trusted for decades. This particular option is a lightweight upright that rated an overall 9.6 score for its cleaning efficiency on hard floors and quiet operation. Surprisingly, it's rated better than models that are more than twice the price! However, if you are looking for something to pick up heavy amounts of pet hair, you may wish to keep looking.
Shark vacuum cleaners are nearly always top in their categories, and the DuoClean NV803 Upright and Rotator machines don't disappoint. The Rotator is excellently rated by reviewers with a 9.6 for how well it cleans but falls a bit on usability — only receiving an 8.8. Both options pick up pet hair like a dream, and the powerful suction works great on stairs for the Rotator. The DuoClean is second only to a Dyson regarding pure power, and it's at a great price point, too.
Speaking of Dysons, three Dyson models made our top list: Dyson Ball Animal 2 Upright Vacuum, Dyson V8 Absolute, and the Dyson V6 Motorhead. The Motorhead is exceptionally strong, rated a straight ten by customers for cleaning power. While the Dyson Ball Animal 2 isn't cheap, it is ideal for families with children and pets as it is easy to use. If you need an industrial-grade vacuum, the V8 Absolute is your weapon of choice. It's quieter than average, but the price isn't for the faint of heart.
The Miele Quartz tops the list of canister vacuums, scoring a 9.5 for ease of use but only an 8.5 for cleaning power. The Miele S8590 Alize received similar ratings, but the overall score isn't something to sneeze at — 9.38 is pretty close to perfect. Miele's Dynamic U1 Cat and Dog Upright Vacuum maintains key features from some older models, but this retro-looking machine is anything but old-timey. It grabs 99.9 percent of fur, dust, and allergens — pretty impressive at any price point!
