Is it worth it?

Bagless vacuum cleaners, are they worth the investment? 

I need a new vacuum soon. I was wondering if bagless vacuum cleaners are a good investment or not. I keep reading that to replace the filters is expensive and they also cause built up dust or hair. 

If you have an opinion or experience with owning a bagless vacuum share what vacuum you own and experience related.

    The one I have I did not buy (2nd. hand) but it has a dust compartment that you have to empty.  I have not replaced anything on it....don't use it that often now because we pulled up most of our old carpet.

    I wouldn't get an expensive one.  We had an expensive one that everyone raves about and it was terrible. Now we have a shark and it was very inexpensive but it works perfectly!

    How long have you had the Shark? I was considering one because our whole first floor is hardwood. I hear they tend to break easily after awhile.

    About 2 years.  Our entire first floor is hard woods too.

    And it's holding up nice? Works well? How much did you spend? (Sorry. Lots of questions!)

    Yes, it's holding up well.  We haven't had any problems.  I can't remember exactly how much we spent but I want to say it was around $100.  Bought at Bed Bath & Beyond with a 20% off coupon.
