My thinking on the DE is just the opposite. On a per-gallon basis, the large CT bags are like half the cost of the mini/midi bags. The savings may be even more dramatic now that the self-cleaning bags are available for the smaller models, I haven’t looked to see the cost yet. Upgrading a mini/midi to HEPA is also a bit pricy and I’m becoming a lot more protective of my lungs these days. Overall, the only reason I see for getting the smaller models would be if you just don’t have the space. Same argument applies to the 26 vs 36, I’d recommend going all the way to the top of the line because of the bag costs.
