So far so good... the product even though refurbished - you would never be able to tell. It looked and seemd brand new. Have only used it about 4 times, but it seems to be doing a good job. The vac is a bit heavy and the hose is a bit stiff, but thats what all the reviews say. Collection canister is plenty big enough for my use, dont have to empty it every time if I dont want to.

Vacuumed the whole house as soon as it got it. Could not believe how awful my old vacuum was after seening what this was picking up. I didn't want to spend the money, but had bought 2 other cheap models that each lasted a year. So I did it, got a Dyson, and don't regret it one bit!!
Our first Dyson lasted us more than 6 years and paid for itself many times over. To be able to get a new, lighter, easier to maneuver model for about half of what we paid for one years earlier was great. We have recommended the Dyson to a few of our friends and they purchased them and love them. We and all of our friends that have pets were replacing our vacuums about every 15 months. When my wife and I got tired of doing this and spent the money on our first Dyson, there was some trepidation. Now, after 6+ years with our first Dyson, we would have spent more on replacement vacuums and we haven't had to purchase a vacuum cleaner bag in that time. These machines just keep getting better.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. the quality of this vacuum is excellent, it has great suction and cleans carpet better than my old vac.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? the vacuum was very accurate with the web sites description
This vacuum looks and performs as new on both our wood floors and carpet. The many tools fit snugly away when not in use and the cord is long enough to not have to change outlets every 5 minutes. I hope to be using this vacuum for many years.

Hello , You'd be amazed at some of the tests that Dyson carries out to ensure they're as tough and reliable as possible. During development, a push/pull rig moves Dyson vacuum cleaners a minimum of 5,740,157 feet. The hose is kinked 9,828 times. The bin is opened 1,560 times. Upright vacuum cleaners undergo 212 different validation tests, canisters 240. That's why Dyson are so confident in their machines. Please feel free to contact us again with any further questions. Thank you for shopping with us!overstockcustomercare1 on May 3, 2013
The only difference between the DC25 Purple and the DC25 All Floor is the color. The difference between the DC25 Animal and the DC25 Purple is that the Animal comes with the mini-turbine tool. The Dyson vacuums that have "Animal" in the title all come with the Animal tool.lyss87 on May 3, 2013
I use mine for our plush carpet (upstairs) and area rugs/hardwoods (downstairs). The vacuum automatically adjusts for height. If you are transitioning to hard surfaces, all you have to do is press one button to turn off the brush.jonathan33 on May 1, 2013
Is there a difference between this Purple DC25 Upright and the one labeled as the DC25 Animal also in purple. There is a price difference of about $75 but I dont see the difference between the two.donnman on Apr 28, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
The only difference is that the DC25 Animal comes with the mini turbine tool. This listing does not come with the mini turbine tool.lyss87 on Apr 29, 2013
I have two dogs, both shed a lot. The regular DC25 works just fine.jonathan33 on May 1, 2013
We received this vacuum yesterday. Just wanted to point out that THIS IS the Animal Upright. The label on the box from Dyson has it listed as the "DC25 Animal." It appears the ONLY difference between this and the other refurbished DC25 is that this model does not come with the turbine tool. So if you want to save about $110 bucks buy this model. If you really want the turbine tool you can pick that up separately for around $50.donnman on May 3, 2013
Does this have the hepa filter that the other purple dysons have? Specifically the animal versions?

Thank you for your inquiry schnucki. We have confirmed with the manual this unit does not have a self propelled system to operate. Although using the machine with the brush feature will propel the unit a little. It is just not an automatic feature you should count on. We hope this helps. Thanks for shopping with us.overstockcustomercare1 on Apr 5, 2013
