I have wanted a Dyson for a while but it seemed like a lot of money! I normally buy a new vacuum every 2 years anyway so I figured I would go for it. I got a refurbished one and it looks brand new. It picks up everything - very happy w/ my purchase.
This vacuum is definitely easy to steer, as advertised, and appears to do a good job cleaning. It's relatively light, and the Transformers-ish features make it kind of fun to use (but you're still vacuuming!) I don't think I would have paid the full price for it, but it's worth what I paid for the refurbished model.
Great Vacuum. We have used it 3 times now since we decided to buy a refurbished vacuum. We really wanted a Dyson. We borrowed our friends Dyson and loved it. Looked around for one and saw how expensive they were. I looked on overstock and saw that they had refurbished ones for less. I wasn't worried. Overstock has great items. Vacuum works great, good suction, doesn't like thick carpets tho, I notice it slows down a bit but as long as you don't go back and forth it's ok.. we just have a thick carpet outside on our patio and used once and we noticed that. But very happy, would recommend this brand to anyone!
