I purchased this vacuum over a year ago. I was very pleased with it and even rated it "excellent" during my initial review. However, now after a year, I see what other reviewers were commenting on - the handle keeps coming off. This just started happening and is very frustrating. The suction is still great and for pets owners, it is a great vacuum if you can tolerate the handle coming off on a regular basis. That is my only complaint. I would probably not purchase this again after experiencing the handle problem. I guess I could duck tape the handle on but I should not have to do that.

After 10 years, I decided to go back to a bagless, and am glad I did. This is a real vacuum. It is heavy, though. I like that the brush turns off when using the hose and all of the attachments snap into place so they don't fall off. A flexible hose & useful attachments make the machine easy to use. Switching from floor to hose is so easy that I find myself using it every time I vacuum. It is most impressive when used on my tile. It forms a suction against the floor it is so strong. Amazing. I have come to the conclusion that the bagless styles just aren't tough enough for me. I am a happy pet owner and live in an area where dust and dried grass are year round problems. I have gone through 4 bagless vacs in the same price range as this one in the past 10 yrs. Never again. What a bargain.

I have had reconditioned items before and so I was not surprised that it worked just like new. It is so quit my other Bissell was a hand-me down from my daughter who got it from a friend. I am not sure how long the original own had it but it worked fine but neither owners have pest so I ended up killing it. So when I saw this one specifically stating Pet I was excited. when I got it I put it together (easy) and swept just a small spot on the floor where my dog usually lays, in a few seconds the cup was full of hair and dirt. I did not even see the hair on the floor. I am really impressed with this pet vacuum. I would love to be able to sweep my dog (have a dog brush that can be attached to the vacuum hose) with it but he does not like sweepers. If you have pets this one will do the work. It even gets aspen shavings and hay that my bunny kicks out. When this one goes I will defiantly get another

Really works wonders for carpet of pet owners. Can't believe what we picked up that was left from our old vacuum cleaner and it is much quieter. It is a little heavy but still handles very well.

I couldn't be happier with my new Dyson. I've had it for about a month now. It's doing great! I can't believe how much it picks up from the floor. It's lightweight and easy to use. It's the first vacuum I've owned where the attachments didn't fall off as I was using it-they lock into place, yet are easy to remove. The low reach floor tool allows me to easily get under my king size bed to clean. I think the best part just might be how easy it is to empty. Since the container opens from the bottom, you don't get the dust you can have with other bagless vacuums. Even though I got a great price compared to the usual retail value, the price was a consideration. I can now say it was worth every penny. The Animal is a must have for any pet owners.

I did my research. I knew about the owner of the company and his struggles and heard all about how wonderful the Dyson products were, but I am not one to buy into hype. When I read reviews on various sites saying exactly that, I was prepared to be as skeptical as possible. That's one thing I found very interesting. Reviews of this vacuum tend to be that people absolutely love it or absolutely hate it. Which I don't understand. A vacuum either works or it doesn't. This vacuum works! I was absolutely blown away at how this little devil effortless went through the house picking up everything in its path. It also transfers easily from carpet to smooth surfaces (remember to turn the spinning brushes off!). You do have to empty it often, but WHO CARES! I am giddy with joy every time I walk over to empty it out into the trash because that means it's working as it should. Maybe it works better for certain carpet types? I don't know. But I can't see how. I live in an upscale apartment with 2 dogs, a cat, and a hairy husband. Things get ridiculous real fast if you can imagine. I vacuum at least once a day. The first few times I used the machine I would get low to the ground and scrape my hand across the floor. With my old vacuum I would do that and have a handful of hair. With this baby, nothing! This isn't even the pet model! I don't want to be condescending, but you also have to know how to vacuum. You are supposed to go across an area of carpet in multiple directions to really remove all the debris. I waited a little over a month to review because I've been waiting for something to just break down or not work at top performance. It hasn't yet, so I figured it'd be high time for me to leave my experiences with this. On a serious note, after having the Dyson, I have definitely noticed a vast improvement in my health. I have allergies (among other things, to dogs and cats, but I love them!), and this has definitely made life less miserable for me. This was really important because of the move to a smaller living space. So what can I say? Believe the hype! Oh, and I've never had any problems with refurbished products. No reason to be afraid of that label.

I've only had this vacuum for a few weeks but it does the job well. I have tile and carpet in my house and the vacuum does well on both surfaces. In addition, having the detachable canister feature is a bonus. It is a great vacuum especially for pet owners, hopefully it will last for a long time.

I bouht this vacuum on a recommendation from a friend who already had one. We vacuumed our carpets with the old vacuum before running over it with this one. It was amazing how much hair this pulled out of the carpet! I love this vacuum, will definitely buy another and recommend it to every pet owner I know!

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).
