If you're on the market for a new vacuum machine, you've likely noticed that the price range is quite wide; there are a bunch for around $50, a bunch for around $500, and everywhere in between. The high price tag may be daunting; you might wonder "Do I need to spend that much? Will I be getting a higher quality product?"
Buzzrake collected opinions from all around the web to try and answer that question for you. We looked at vacuums priced at $400 minimum to see what users are saying about these luxuriously-priced machines.
When discussing their experiences with a vacuum, users refer repeatedly to several factors: reliability, performance, value, power and quality, to name a few. The amount of positive and negative mentions users give to each product for these factors are calculated into an overall score. The expensively-priced vacuums do not receive a higher overall score than average. Nor do they have any other subjective scores that stand out (for better or worse). They are mostly average for just about everything (except price, of course).
They do, however, typically feature a longer cord and wider vacuuming interfaces. There isn't one single type of vacuum that comes in this price range; both canister and upright models come in all price ranges. The brands with the highest average vacuum prices are Dyson and Miele.
Check out the models below, which are the top rated models in the $400+ price range.
