We had a Dyson for a couple of years and loved it, except the hose ripped twice. We decided to go back to Hoover as it was always dependable before. While this Hoover model is very powerful and has some great features, there were too many problems:
1. Emptying the dust bin is ridiculously messy.
2. The vacuum constantly tips over when using the hose with the tools--it narrowly missed my 2 and 4 yr-olds on several occasions.
3. The power tool rotating brush frequently stopped turning--nothing caught, no clogs.
4. The dusting brush is in 2 pieces and always slides off when using the vacuum.
5. Finally, the belt came off twice in 2 months. To put it back on, you have to take the whole base apart.

[EDIT 9/1/2009] There are newer models from Hoover that better mimic the design of Dyson's multi-cyclone technology, making them somewhat easier to empty/clean. The Turbo Cyclonic (Target) is a nearly exact clone of the DC14 and Hoover Whisper Cyclonic (Walmart) is similar to the DC14 but with a quieter motor. Both do not have a self-rewinding cord, but both are cheaper than the Mach 5, at about $100. Nevertheless, they are all bagless. What I have discovered that is an inherent part of the design of all bagless vacuums is that the process of emptying and cleaning the dirt cup is too messy to be worthwhile. I'm a clean freak and have dust allergies. I spend more time emptying and cleaning the dust bin and filters than I do actually vacuuming! I find that I put off vacuuming until the discomfort of the dirty floor exceeds the discomfort of emptying the dust bin and cleaning the filters. I am very strongly considering buying a bagged vacuum to replace this one even though there is nothing functionally wrong with it.

After using this vacuum for two years, I can say that it continues to clean admirably. Suction continues to be strong and with no loss. However, I have noticed that if you don't empty the dirt cup with each use, the filters get clogged quickly and the vacuum begins to smell of dust. That happened to us and since I don't know how to replace or clean the HEPA filter (it's not washable), our vacuum continues to smell of dust. I'm attributing that to user error, however.

Pros: Quiet motor, cord rewind, powerful suction, brush-bar shut-off.
Cons: Small dirt cup, messy to empty, hassle to clean, heavy.

The Hoover U5780-900 Windtunnel Cyclonic Bagless Upright has a lot going for it. I wanted something with suction as close to Dyson as I could get. At the same time I didn't want to spend Dyson prices on a vacuum or settle for a used one to save money. It won't satisfy everybody but review your options. Depending on your needs this may be a strong contender for you.

I have used many vacuums, including the usual suspects (Hoover, Bissel, Eureka, Oreck, Kenmore, etc) and newer models like the Dyson. I will openly admit I tend to clean a lot and I am perhaps more demanding on a vacuum than the casual user. Overall, I am willing to accept the shortcomings of this vacuum because it performs good enough for the money.

I've had this vacuum for a little over two weeks and I have to say that this is the best vacuum I've owned yet. I have always been a Hoover fan and this model does not disappoint. What prompted the need for yet another vacuum cleaner was my growing intolerance of lugging the machine up and down the stairs. Our current Hoover Bagless Windtunnel model has been a great vacuum, of which we only had one complaint- the messy cylinder filter inside the dirt cup that seemed to hold on to odors, particularly dog hair from our two hairly house mates! Regardless of how well we cleaned the filter, it still seemed to spew that noxious odor through the house every time we vacuumed.

We decided to retire that unit to the upper floor where the dogs are not allowed, and look for something that would handle the downstairs "kennel". Enter the Hoover U5780900. This model does not use a filter within the dirt cup, but rather a series of chambers to remove and trap the dirt in the canister. I'm not a vacuum designer, but it appears to be a similar method used by another EXPENSIVE brand name vacuum. So far so good. The canister empties fairly easily from the bottom (still a two handed excersize) and if allowed to get too full, a little assistance is required to extricate the large lint and hair balls that will no doubt collect. Not a big deal to me and I appreciate not having the dirty filter to clean. The dust cup disassembles further and can be easily washed out in the sink on occasion, but not required after every use.

This vacuum also features an on/off control for the beater bar for using on hard surfaces and auto brush-off when in the upright position for using attachments. I also love the cord rewind feature. Step on the button and the cord winds back into the unit.
