I loved this so much I bought another one for my daughter law and was going to buy another one for my other daughter in law but VERY disappointed the price with a discount went up almost $XXX.XX in a week ? I hope they offer it lower in the future or she will still be using a broom
This is the fifth Dyson we've bought, because we like to upgrade our own and pass the old models on to our sons, who are very appreciative. Some models have not worked out very well (an early handheld was a waste of money), but this one is a real gem. I love the form of canister vacs because they are so much more flexible. The beater on this one is incredible - a much stiffer bristle really reaches deep into carpet. I definitely recommend this, to anyone - you'll love it!
I purchased the product in April of last year (and I'm writing this in February). The vacuum was great at first, light weight, easy to maneuver and get under beds. The brush heads turn until I place it on the floor to vacuum. I took it to a vacuum shop and the repairman said I needed a new head and that he has had several of them brought into the shop. I can purchase it from Dyson for $$ plus shipping. Rather than purchasing the head I have decided to put it toward a vacuum that lasts longer.
4 stars because the design of the button/plastic latch releasing the "contents" feels flimsy. Ours broke on our first try, but Dyson sent a free replacement. Does the job well and is easy to move around the house. I hold rather than drag the canister and that speeds things up.
I've been looking for a Dyson but the prices have just been out of my league until I saw this refurbished one on Overstock. What a deal! I was a little worried about it being refurbished but I have not had any issues whatsoever. I would recommend!
Just bought a house and needed a heavy duty vacuum that could take care of all of my needs. This vacuum does just that, it can go from hardwood flooring to tiles to area rugs to couches, without having to do too many adjustments. I have a shepherd pup, who sheds a ton and nI needed a vacuum that would have the suction power to collect all the hair without having to redo multiple areas of the floor. The vacuum moves easily, the canister style makes it lightweight, and the dyson power is undeniable. Great vacuum, well worth your money. WOuld recommend to anyone. Shipping took about a week.
I haven't had a canister-style vac in a long time, found them to be cumbersome in the past. This one, however, maneuvers easily and is super light for toting up the stairs. The "Dyson Suction" is phenomenal and it's easily getting stuff up like sand and pet hair from my hard floor surfaces. It works OK on carpet too, but much better for hard floors in my opinion.
Although this vac is powerful and a pleasure to use it does have some small drawbacks. It gets clogged fairly easily usually a penny or other small item. All things considered I think this is the best vac I have ever used. Seems like a new one even though said refurbished. The box was not original but packed well. Simple to use but takes a little time to get used to it. Once you use for a while there isn't much to not like about it.
Updated version of the same vacuum I had to leave behind when I moved. I just love this style and it is light and I can pick it up and carry it when I need to. Have been using a broom and dust pan for 6 mos., it is so nice to really be vacuuming up all the dirt my boyfriend and dogs haul in from outside.
