I ordered 2 of these for quick pick ups after sweeping--one for upstairs and one for downstairs. Both have the same problem, they run for about 30 seconds and then it shuts off. Then you release the power button and it works again for about 30 seconds. Called Dyson and they told me to wash the filter, well hello I have not used it enough to get the filter dirty. Disappointed with Dyson for such a poor quality product. I can live with a battery that lasts 6 minutes but 30 seconds? And to think that I bought 2 and as of yet Dyson has done nothing to help me resolve the issue except to tell me to wash the filters. Shame on you Dyson

This equipment must charge for 3 hours prior to use. It works for about 6 minutes before needing to be charged for three hours again. For the cost, this isn't worth anywhere near the value. I will say that during the 6 minutes of use, it works fine.
Dyson should include a NEW battery on these factory re manufactured units. After charging the vacuum overnight, it ran for 3 seconds and died. Release and pull the trigger again and it would run another 3 seconds.. after a few iterations of this it was then flat. After charging for several hours again, the same results. Rather return the unit, I googled the problem and many had the same issue after 2-3 years of use, which turned out to be a bad battery. I called Dyson, and they sent me a new battery and that solved the problem. It was frustrating to deal with and then wait another week for the battery, but it is working properly now and does a nice job, plenty of power and much better than the dustbuster it replaced. Was a good deal at the price I paid, but would be hard pressed to pay retail or close to it..

This little machine is powerful and easily picks up the dirt. Though it has a short battery life for each use, it is sufficient to clean the floors of my car or my entire staircase on one charge! I would definitely recommend it. The only improvement would be to have a cord option for longer use when needed.
For the money, you can't go wrong. This is a refurb that has a 6 mo warranty via Dyson. Like others, my battery life was about 1min. It should be 6 min fully charged. But lets get this straight, it should be 6 min of FULL POWER. Other handheld vacs give you 30 sec of full power and then several minutes of throwing the dirt back at your floor. So if you want a handheld cordless with more than 6 min of power: look elsewhere. But if it is enough, buy this. If your battery life is less than 6 min, call Dyson and in 7 days you will get a new battery. They stand behind their products. I made a 3 minute phone call and that was it - new battery on its way, no charge to me. Oh, and one other thing, it takes only 3 hours to reach full charge, which is significantly less than other handhelds. It is also lightweight and not as clunky as the pictures show. It is a really nice working design. I am incredibly pleased with the product. If 6 min meets your expectations, you will be too - but you might just have to make a phone call.

Never bought a refurbished product before, but between the price and it being a Dyson (I already own a Dyson upright vacuum) I decided to give it a try. The Dyson arrived with everything included. You'd never know it was a "refurnished" item. It works great and I am completely satisfied with this purchase. Thanks Overstock and Dyson!
It has taken me two years to purchase the Dyson Handheld Vacuum and I don't know why I waited. I took it out of the box and within a few minutes: Vacuum the dog's bed, 2 sets of blinds, cleaned up dirt on kitchen table, and took care of 15 stairs. This little powerful tool will help me keep the house clean and tidy. Love it! Should have bought it earlier.
I saved a lot because I bought a refurbished unit that looks and operates like new. It was simple to assemble and is easy to operate. It's lightweight, but has the power to suck the color out of a crayon if you ask it to. The six minute run-time will disappoint some people, but I'm retired so six minutes at a task doesn't bother me at all. I'm done and on to the next little job. Tunner
Having a very active and messy toddler, I needed a handheld for quick clean ups. I already had another handheld, from a pretty popular brand, but it just wasn't cutting it...and having a Dyson upright vacuum, I knew I could trust the power of Dyson. I couldn't be happier with my purchase! It picks up everything in half the amount of time of my previous handheld! Although the battery life only lasts 6 minutes, it's just enough for me to use it for quick cleanups and I can go over my 8x11' rug and then some within that time. BTW, this is the second refurbished Dyson product I bought from Overstock and I've never had any problems with them, they're like new.
We just purchased this dyson, and it blows away and *** we have ever had. I have used it for over 5 minutes and it still does not run out of power... we the ***... at most I had 2 minutes. The sucking power is great as well. Highly recommend.

Works well enough for a hand held vacuum, but does not hold a charge very long. It takes two charges to do our carpeted stairs - that's just in the joint of the risers. Also, the unit slips out of the charging dock very easily. Any little bump and it disconnects and then discharges, so you must recharge again.
Can't let the difference if any repairs was done. This vacuum picks up dirt as strong as the other full size vacuum. Charging time frame do need at lease 8+ hours highly recommend over night and it hold the charge for a long time I was surprise. Love the wall mount and extra long cord...
