I bought this vacuum cleaner after the handle on my Hoover "snapped off". For the first time I did research before buying one, and I am SO glad that I did. I was impressed with the reviews and the price was good-if it worked like the reviews promised. It was delivered in 2 days which was great (normal for Overstock.com). It's very easy to assemble and a lot lighter weight than I expected. It has plenty of attachments (I am grateful-I bought an Oreck a few years ago and it didn't have ANY attachments, used only Oreck bags and was hard to push around) and the cord is long enough to clean most of my house without having to plug it in again. I don't remember reading that it was "self-propelled" in the reviews or if it's because it's so lightweight, but the Shark almost vacuums by itself. The head swivels which is quite handy in corners and around table legs. I have two long-haired cats and the amount of hair that was vacuumed up the first time I used the Shark was totally amazing (and embarrassing). I vacuumed my house every day for the first week I had the Shark and I continued getting dirt and cat hair out of my carpet, which is wonderful but doesn't say much for my previous vacuums. I have never been so excited about a vacuum cleaner before, but I've never had one that exceeded my expectations like this one has. The only thing wrong with it-it's a little top heavy when using the wand and can tip over if you pull it by the wand instead of the handle on the top. I wouldn't mind if the hose/wand was a little longer either but overall I am very happy with it and would urge anyone-especially pet owners- to get this vacuum cleaner. You won't be sorry.

This is the best vacuum cleaner ever made. My parents have had this machine for over 20 years. Basically I grew up using this vacuum cleaner. Knowing that this is a very well made product I decided to purchase a refurbished one on Overstock. There are a couple of reasons I went this route. First, it's more affordable (new ~$XXXX), and second I would never be able to stand a home visit from one of the obnoxious rainbow dealers. They are truly unbearable. So this was a win-win for us. There are a couple of issues we encountered with the unit we received: a metal wand was bent and had to be replaced (already received from Overstock) and one hose attachment was damaged (replacement in progress). Love this machine and was dreaming of one for a long time. It's a must for any pet owner. I never write reviews (always read them), but I do feel very strongly about the incredible quality of this product. $$ well spent. FOR SURE

Upon arrival the vacuum is packed well to prevent any damage. Once unpacked, you can get it started in a few minutes. The vacuum is powerful in terms of both suction as well as the brush to kick up dust. I dare you to vacuum your house with another vacuum and then try the Dyson. You'll see the difference in efficacy by the amount of dust the other vacuum left behind. The system was originally designed for pet owners. However, you don't need to have a pet to benefit from this engineering marvel. The vacuum features easy-to-clean HEPA filters which are excellent for reducing allergens as well as a canister that is easy to empty/clean. The Vacuum has a super long power chord, which may be considered a benefit as you can use the same outlet for multiple rooms. Yet, as there isn't an automatic retraction feature, it can be cumbersome. Also, the wand, which works when the vacuum is upright, has a head that is a little bulky for my liking. So If you have furniture that is low to the ground, you may not be able to fit it under.

I've wanted this vacuum for a long time and I finally decided to purchase it. The refurbished version available through Overstock was pretty much brand new. I couldn't tell that it had been used. The carpet performance is excellent. Some people have had issues with the vacuum sucking or pulling up (brush bar) carpet fibers, but I have not. What I do get is an insane amount of cat hair and fine dust. It's somewhat of a good feeling to be able to see what this thing sucks up, but at the same time, kinda gross. The bare floor performance is ok to say the least. When the brush bar is turned off, it does a good job sucking up dirt and hair, but struggles with larger debris like cat food. Sometimes I need to turn on the brush bar to get it to suck up the bigger stuff. The pull-out hose and attachments are good and bad. Good because they're convenient and pretty easy to use. Bad because the hose is VERY tight so when you extend it, there is a lot of resistance and the vacuum tends to get pulled along. This isn't terrible, but it makes it difficult to maneuver at times. One other thing I noticed was that when the hose was fully extended, the suction was reduced. The turbo head is great at getting hair off of furniture and other upholstery. The low-reach floor tool wasn't exactly what I had expected. I'd hoped for something that could work well on hardwood floors, but this seems to be suited for some other purpose that I haven't figured out. The rest of the standard attachments work as expected. I think I will be getting the asthma and allergy kit as well for better dusting capabilities. The canister also has its pros and cons. The good is that you can see what you're getting off the floor and that you don't have to keep replacing bags. The bad is that (in my case) you need to pretty much have an empty garbage can when emptying the canister to avoid making a mess. You'd think a canister would be clean, but it stirs up a lot of dust when emptying it. Also, hair and thick dust accumulate at the top of the canister near the cyclone things and they have to be cleaned off each time. This requires separating the two parts of the canister. Not hard at all, but it can be a little messy if you're not careful. To me it's all a minor inconvenience to get such great cleaning power. In all, this is a wonderful vacuum for pet owners who have carpet.

Received the brown Dyson box from brown, opened it up, vacuum had some wear on the rollers but generally seemed to be in good condition. Put it together and got to work. Whoa! What's that smell?!? Smells kinda like a wet dog. A very strong pet odor. It most likely was coming from the filters. I called Dyson and explained about receiving the refurbished vacuum from Overstock and the horrible pet odor and asked about getting new filters. Dyson rep was not willing to send filters unless I paid retail price for them. I explained that this unit was refurbished and such an odor was unacceptable. The rep suggested I wash the filters in cold water. Ummm, yeah, like cold water is going to remove an odor! Not only that, this machine should have had the filters replaced when it was refurbished at the factory. Dyson rep didn't budge. I said I was going to return the item. Seemed like she could care less. (I didn't indicate I was going to get a replacement). Being a previous Dyson owner, and seeing how well this vacuum worked (in spite of the smell), I called Overstock to inquire about getting a replacement. The O. rep was GREAT! Sales rep had me on the phone all but 2 minutes. In that time she heard my complaint, set up a return with prepaid shipping label, and immediately sent me another vacuum, and didn't even double bill me. Received the second vacuum, put it together and fired it up ... Yea! no odor! Vacuum works like nobody's business! The day before I vacuumed our floors with our old DC17, and this DC41 pulled a surprising amount out of the carpet. This DC41 is suppose to have the most powerful suction of all Dysons. The ball was different compared to the traditional style, but overall is easy to operate. This vacuum is several pounds lighter. The canister is a bit smaller compared to the one on the DC17. Overall, I am very pleased with this purchase and especially Can't say much for Dyson's customer service, but Overstock's came through. So ding one star for Dyson shipping out the first vacuum with such a horrible odor. Other than that, it is a 5-star machine at the price overstock is charing for refurbished (plus $40 internet coupon).

Incredible suction! Finally! This awesome little vacuum has given me the edge in the war against pet hair! I'm the owner of 3 cats and a dog, and this vacuum has cut my floor cleaning time in half. Great on my rugs, hardwood floors, tile, and laminate! I'm so glad I no longer have to drag out the broom and dust pan! I can just keep vacuuming from one surface to the next, and I can reach my whole house from one centrally-located outlet! It has also worked great for a quick clean-up of white dog hair on my dark brown bonded leather sofas. This is the first canister vac I've owned, but it's so much easier to maneuver than my old bulky up-right vac...I now have no plans to ever own another up-right! I am happy enough with it overall to give it 5 stars, although I do have a few critiques: As others have mentioned, the cord keeper on the bottom is not terribly convenient, but not awful either - I can definitely deal with it. I'm glad it came with 2 bags because I looked for the required size before it arrived, and couldn't find them locally...Will have to order them online, which is a bit of an inconvenience. I wish the floor sweeper attachment was just a bit wider/bigger to cover more area, but the additional attachments included are great for cleaning fan blades, blinds, etc. And lastly, I notice that the plastic of the hose and the attachments is charged in such a way that pet hair sticks to it like a magnet...I end up having to vacuum a large amount of dog hair off the floor attachment when I'm done vacuuming my rugs, but that's not really a bad thing since it means I'm getting up even MORE pet hair! I can't imagine that anyone would be disappointed with this great little vacuum!

I vacuum almost every other day due to my families allergies. We have two dogs and three cats so there are plenty of messes to keep up with. When recieved my new Dyson I vacuumed the entire house- (right after vacuuming with my old machine.) I was HORRIFIED by the amount of pet hair it picked up! I couldn't believe what an excellent job this vacuum did! I have also noticed my families allergy problems have been greatly reduced.It's also light weight and easy to manuever, great product!

We extensively researched vacuums that were not only within our budget, but reviewed well for pet owners and decided on this one based on past reviews. IT IS A WORK HORSE OF A VACUUM, for sure! When I read in others' reviews it was heavy, they weren't kidding. This has got to be the heaviest vacuum I've ever owned! Thankfully we live in a one story house . . . I can't imagine carrying it upstairs, and I'm fairly young and fit! That's my only real caution! Otherwise, the vac performs beyond excellent for picking up pet hair bare floors as well as carpet and furniture. I do find I have to switch to the bare floor mode for carpets that are not tacked down. The suction is so great on this vac it doesn't function well with the roller on decorative carpets laid on bare floors. However, even with the roller turned off and in bare floor mode it does an excellent job! Love the long cord and all the cubby attachments that are easily at hand. Previously had a bagless vac, but I'm digging the bag. Saves time having to clean after every use. However, there is a musty smell emitted if the bag isn't changed frequently. Probably all of our pet hair and dandruff! Bags are easy to find and change. Only other little issue is the wrap hose comes out of it's encasement way too easy and not always when I need it. Quick fix, just a bit annoying. Overall we are extremely pleased with our purchase. Thanks OVERSTOCK!!!
