Quality is a serious concern for consumers shopping for appliances nowadays; many complain that buying a blender or a refrigerator isn't what it used to be. Appliances don't tend to last as long or feature good materials. Lower prices often - but not always - reflect lower quality, leaving consumers confused about how much to spend and what brands to trust. With the average vacuum cleaner costing upwards of $200, finding out you've bought a lemon would be particularly infuriating.
Quality is also one of the hardest aspects to assess before purchasing and owning a product for awhile. The best way to figure out whether or not a product is of good quality would be to ask around, maybe some friends and family, and see what people recommend. Well Buzzrake has taken that a step farther: we have collected literally thousands of opinions from users about vacuums. We have analyzed them to find out what users say about each product's quality and narrowed it down for you. We know what and who makes a high quality vacuum and we're here to make your choice easier.
- Type: Users find that canister models, overall, are slightly higher in quality that upright ones. While a cordless feature makes life easier for getting around furniture and pets, users find that cordless models tend to lag a bit when it comes to quality.
- Brands: The big winner, when it comes to quality, is Samsung. Miele and Vacmaster are next. Shark is at the bottom of the pile.
- What you're getting with high quality: Users find that higher quality models also have satisfyingly-low noise levels and tend to do a better job than others. You're also likely to find them very user-friendly.
