What's good vacuum cleaner for both hardwood and carpet?


My very old and faithful Hoover vacuum sadly gave in and stopped working after about 25 years. It's time to move on and find a replacement.

I'm not very informed about new vacuum cleaners. What are the best vacuum cleaner brands and options these days? Do you recommend upright or canister ones? What about bagless vs bagged? I do have quite a lot of hardwood floors and carpet, so we'd need something good for that.

I've googled around a bit and http://www.consumerreports.org recommends Miele Dynamic U1 Twist, while https://getcleaningdone.com/best-vacuum-hardwood-floors-carpet/ recommends a vacuum that's supposed to be specifically good for hardwood floors and carpet, SharkNinja Canister Upright Vacuum. What do you think about these two options?
