My wife and I were very excited to purchase a Dyson for the first time & were amazed at how much dust it picks up. We are disappointed, however, that the rotating carpet brush does not work consistently. We often have to gently "hit" the unit with our hand or foot to get the bush moving. Maybe we got a lemon, we aren't sure.

The vacuum is the best! I have owned it about a year and it continues to amaze me! Every time I use it I am amazed at everything it picks up! I have a black lab, and this vacuum does a great job of keeping up with all the dog hair. Great vacuum for a great price!
very good vacuum. It is a little heavy, but it picks up everything. It is pretty much a new vacuum. You don't get the users manual, but you can get that online. We have dogs and it picks up the dog hair. It is amazing what was in the carpet that wasn't getting picked up by our old vacuum.
I've been using high quality vacuums for pretty much all of my life and now I know why they named this one the Animal. I've been using it for over a month and it's perfect. Hits every corner, deep cleans, major suction, easy to maneuver, attachments are amazing...not one negative thing I can say. I'm amazed every time I empty the canister on just how much crap was on my floor and in my carpet, it's disgusting! And I've been using bagless types for a while and they never removed this much, ever. Sad to say, but I'm completely in love with my vacuum. It's the best I've owned and I can't tell at all that it's been refurbished. Buying this thing at such a discount is worth every single penny.
Given all the hype about Dyson, I was disappointed with this. When it works, it works great. The handle release quit working when just a few months old. It thinks it's clogged somewhere in the upright position so I can't use the tools. I've washed the filters and taken it apart several times but it still thinks its clogged.
We decided to purchase a refurbish Dyson, because our 10 year old Dyson was breaking apart (but still working!). We owned an older model of the Animal vacuum, but this one was way better. You can control the suction depending on the surface and it's just amazing.
I LOVE Dyson's! I've had several models of their "animal" as a pet lover. You can' beat their ability to remove all kinds of pet hair on any floor surface. I honestly could not tell the difference between this refurbished model and ones I've bought new! It was a great Overstock deal and it is a powerhouse cleaner. My one caveat is the weight of this vacuum! It's heavy! You get a great workout while using it!
