I was a little worried getting this refurb but the vacuum is fantastic. It is a little heavier to carry up/down the steps but it maneuvers so nicely. It works great on carpet and hardwood. It's easy to dump the canister. Highly recommended!
For the price I should have gone with my gut and bought another shark. I broke mine and decided to replace it with this. I don't feel that it is at all superior. It does transition nicely from carpet to hard floors, doesn't kick the dirt around on the hard floors like some do. I find myself having to repeatedly go over the same spots On the carpet to really get a deep clean. For the money I doubt I would purchase a Dyson again in the future. I also miss the lift away feature my shark had, made cleaning stairs etc so easy.
I'm very pleased with this purchase. I bought it as a refurbished model and it was easy to put together and wow! does it work! I had a 26 year old Kirby which I kept maintained and I thought it was doing a good job but the Dyson outshines it...so much lighter in weight and maneuvers into tight spots and it has attachments that are easier to use. I like Overstock for offering it and all the great products. Thank You.
Awesome vacuum! Definitely recommend if you have pets. Yes, it is refurbished so I got one that was broken, BUT with great customer service I got a new one right away! I thought returning the broken one would be a hassle, but I was given a label to print and gave the package to UPS when they were dropping off my new one. Easy peasy.
I was very hesitant to buy such an expensive vacuum but this thing is amazing! It is self adjusting, easy to push, great attachments. My only complaint is that it doesn't stay propped up easily. It falls down pretty easily. Other than that this is a fantastic vacuum.
The vacuum worked ok but not like a new one (advertised as so). It came with scratches on the ball and had remnants of dust in the tube. Nasty! Don't want to know what was sucked up through the vacuum. If you are picky like me, buy new and save yourself the grief.
My old vacuum needed to be replaced, and I really wanted a Dyson but wasn't so keen on the price tag. The refurbished device looked brand new when it arrived. I cannot tell the difference between new and refurbished. I have two cats who constantly shed and a fiancé who is allergic to cats. This vacuum has made such a difference. I cannot believe all the dirt and hair it picks up. Great deal for a great vacuum!
