The best place I've found to purchase a vacuum is a bona fide vacuum store that also provides service. They will be able to tell you first hand which models are best. My recommendation is to buy a model that has the fan by-pass, as without it, you'll be sending everything you pick up through the plastic fan blades and will begin the disintegration of the fan blade the first time you use it and every time thereafter until it is no longer effective in picking up debris from the carpet. Machines of this caliber will start about $200 on up and are not found in box stores.
