Your better bet would be to go to /r/vacuumcleaners. That being said, their stock recommendation for a good starter vacuum in the $100 range seems to be the Hoover Tempo, currently almost exactly $100 on amazon (though a few days ago it was $84): [link]
If you go to /r/vacuumcleaners, be prepared to tell them if you have carpet, how thick, if you own pets or smoke, the area of your home, and if you prefer cyclone or bag and canister, handheld, or upright.
Is this Hoover Tempo the vacuum you are recommending? Also, I read somewhere that bagged vacuums are better than bagless, is that still true today?
What do you think about an Oreck? I'm hesitating over this one since I've had this one for a while and its hard to push on the carpet.
Decent and under 100ish don't really come in the same package when it comes to vacuums. But with those parameters I would recommend a Hoover Tempo and then buy HEPA bags for it.
What kind of flooring will you be trying to vacuum?
I would recommend a better quality (Riccar, Miele, Sebo, Etc.) refurb vs a new dyson stick vac. If your primarily carpet you should check out the hoover Tempo ([link] .) It's definitely not built like Hoovers were 15+ years ago, but it's probably what I would buy if I was forced to buy a sub $100 new vacuum. I'd highly recommend looking into local vac shops, they may have the perfect refurb for your situation.
To be 100% honest you can find a much better machine (performance,quality,life expectancy) for less. Even a basic Hoover Tempo ([link]) will outlast these two machines.
I would also recommend /r/VacuumCleaners for more opinions.
sorry I passed out last night. Honestly that panasonic I already linked would work fine. If you still wanted to use chemicals I would pick up a hoover tempo [link] for your one carpet. And then I would buy a Bona mop. [link]. My customers love these mops compared to the swiffers because they don't use batteries. Make sure you pick up the hardwood floor bona liquid also.
Used or a Hoover Tempo
I just got this one [link] works pretty awesome for the price.
Actually this is a quality $70 vacuum, should last 5 years. Hoover Tempo
I actually don't know why people have bagless vacuums. My vacuum, which is used at least once a week for the past 6 years is awesome and very cheap! [link]
bags/belts cost just a few bucks. Look at the reviews. Also, I have vacuumed my share of spiders, moths and flies.
Best bang for buck.
Have you considered a steam mop for the hardwood? This one works extremely well on my tile.
Just for fun - IMO the best vacuum in the world is made by Rainbow.
For $400 I could buy the vacuum I recommended in here new as well as 402 bags. I'll gladly clean my vacuum periodically to save a a couple hundred dollars. The vacuum I recommended has better reviews than the Dyson vacuums on Amazon.
