I have had very good luck with the purchase of refurbished Dysons from Overstock. This is my second purchase, bought when our old cannister gave up the ghost. It's light, has great power and gets the job done much better than any other I've ever had.

This does have great suction IF you empty the dust canister when it has any dirt in it. You can tell immediately when the suction dies down then you empty the canister and wow the suction comes right back. I guess I was expecting exactly what Mr. Dyson says in his commercial and saved up to buy this "amazing" vacuum. I bought a refurbished one, I believe they are just as good, and I hate to say it but if I had paid $500 or $600 I would have returned it. The canister fills up so fast and is so small you have to empty it all the time. All the dirt clumps right at the entrance sight and stops up so no more can get in. They actually need a small bubble there to let the dirt have some room to go around. I am going to buy another Dyson because I do believe this is a good vacuum but I am going to buy an upright. The style of the wand is great, so easy to release, same with all the releases. I am worried about the plastic release for the dirt cup. It seems a little cheap. If you do buy one, please get the extended service contract, I did.
