I desperately need a new vac but can't decide between these two. Both have great reviews online. I have a DS (8) plus a long haired cat and a dog. Anyone own either one of these vacuums that can offer advice either way? Seems like vacuums are getting marked down this time of year so they both end up being about the same price. I would love to know how these hold up after a few months too. My last vac worked great for several months but then just lost suction.
