Response by poster: I don't understand your answer. Who's James Dyson?

Not cordless, but you might be persuaded:

The best $500 I ever spent was on a Dyson.

It's not cordless, but I have a Dirt Devil Platinum Force and it really kicks ass (I have two cats, so I'm constantly vacuuming floors and upholstry). I'm also convinced that real horsepower can't be had in a cordless model.

I also dig the Dirt Devil line of products after suffering along with lackluster Dustbusters and schlepping around a Shop-Vac to deal with particularly nasty dirt & hair. My favorite thing about the one we have [don't know the model... "the little red one"?] is that when you take it apart, all the parts are really easily identifiable so it's easy to fix if you get something wrapped around it or otherwise screw it up. My basic feeling -- and I'm sorry if this is not answering your question, but I was a caretaker/custodian for three years and feel like I know my vacuums -- is that I've never come across a really good cordless vacuumer that wasn't central vaccuming.

Never found a cordless handheld vac worth keeping. Not sure there is such a critter.

You know what they say... "Nothing sucks like a vax."

Sorry, I just had to.

Response by poster: Thanks, all. I spent $12 last night on one of those little shark vacuums, corded. So far we're both very happy together.

so...is that shark strong enough to clean out your car, and/or window tracks?
