    I got a Miele, but that was substantially more expensive and the strange part is that you are apparently supposed to change the bags after every use.

    Does not seem feasible to me, so I keep mine a little longer.

    I've got the Samsung 2000W one. Works well.
    If you wanna get laid, ask an Ancient Astronaut theorist. They always say yes.

    If you get an Electrolux I will personally come over and hit you with it. My family and I have had a few over the years and they are JUNK!

    And if you won the Lotto, you could invest in a Vorwerk vacuum cleaner. With a fulltime vacuum assistant

    You can get a bagless Electrolux in bloem for around R900.

    I agree WAP is the way to go. After having three cleaners that did not last we invested in an industrial strength WAP over 20 years ago.

    It is still going strong, and I also use it to extract sawdust in the garage.

    WAP

    If you want stuff to last buy the products used in a industrial environment. Same goes for other appliances, use the same washing machine brand they use in laundromats etc.

    Awesome guys, you guys are the best, thanks for the great information.
    Is 1500 watts enough? Do the Wap units use bags or not?

    Hmmm, not sure Watts is the only thing to consider - Check out: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vacuum_cleaner - Towards the bottom of the article.

    Also, everything depends on what you are going to use it for. There are bagless ones, usually Wet/Dry me thinks, but not sure. They normally have a selection on display...Go do a 'Suck-Off' competition. There should be a working plug close enough to test all them 'Suckers'.

    The one we have - WAP Aero 25 uses a bag. You can also buy them @ Makro. Approximately R120 for 3 bags. They are in a clear 'No Name' type bag and are usually to be found on a shelf, close to where the vacuum cleaners live.

    Big green clean machine FTW! Ours is about 10 years old (has been severely abused) and it still has more power than those Samsung ones.

    Guys do you really think this is a waste of money?
    My current Electrolux lasted 10 years:
