Since the vacuum arrived a couple of days ago, I just tried it two times. But I have a strong impression of it. It has strong suction, low noise, no dust blowing out. It works well on both carpet and hard wood floor。The attached tools are useful, and it works to vacuum underneath furniture. The only thing I am not comfortable with is the actually size is bigger than I thought. Handling this vacuum takes more effort and energy than I expect. However, what I want is a strong vacuum to clean up my house, and it dose it very well.

This item looks and functions like brand new. Overstock sent it out like new. You'll love it.

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).

Love it! Cleans great! Much quieter than my old vac. Attachments so easy to put on & take off.

Fantastic product. Looked perfect right out of the box, and the performance is spectacular. I was leery of purchasing "refurbished" anything, but the price was too good and my curiosity got the better of me. I'm so pleased! Thanks Overstock!

Agonized about whether a Dyson was worth it or not - EXTREMELY worth it! You can't telll it's refurbished - it has sucked up items that I didn't even think were there and found amazing other vaccums had missed. Great product! Fast shipping! Highly recommended purchase!

this doesn't seem to have the power that I would have expected from the Dyson brand (I have 2 Dyson uprights). The control on the handle to change from beater brush (rugs) to bare floors is faulty. Takes numerous attempts to get it to switch itself from one mode to the other. A nuisance.

Great refurb, in wonderful condition. Looks new for the most part. Will always purchase refurbs. Really good suction. The amount of animal fur and dirt that this Dyson picks up is amazing!

Being an owner of a husky and a pit pull i have alot of hair floating in my house. not only on the floors, but my bed, the couches and even in my car. this is an amazing vacuum. i feel kind of silly for getting so excited over a vacuum cleaner, but i am. i have tried alot of different things made to specifically pick up pet hair. i.e large floor lent rollers, pet hair brush.e.t.c. so i was thrilled when i could vacuum my comforter while still on the bed, and vacuum the couch right before guests came over. also with having a full head of long hair, i have clogged other vacuums before. so this vacuum has stood the task of keeping hair off of everything. definitely a 5 star vacuum for the price also.

The current "Fantom" (Dyson's original product name) that I have had since 1999 finally gave up the ghost after all these years and even the last couple of years being held together with duct tape but I kept using it because it was a fantastic vacuum cleaner so I knew I wanted another Dyson. The price had got pretty spendy over the last decade as people came to realize how good Dyson vacuum cleaners are. When I saw this was a refurbished product for around 25% less I did not hesitate having bought many refurbished products in the past I figured it would be a safe bet. Sure enough it was. The product appears to be brand new but just doesn't come in a glossy box and what you are basically doing is not paying for the length of the warranty. Knowing Dyson quality I did not have a problem with this. I took it out of the box as soon as UPS dropped it off and the assembly was easy and the power on this unit is fantastic. Having a broken vacuum for a while now the rug really needed a cleaning and the DC 39 was up to the task. The power head has no motor and is air powered so it is light and nimble but it does a fantastic job. The bowl worked as expected and emptied with ease, much easier than the unit it is replacing. The tools provided are pretty sparse so I got the Car Cleaning kit which will work quite well with the included mini tangle free turbine tool for cleaning the furniture in the house too. This makes it have more attachments than the animal at $*** less cost. Now to go read the manual to find out what else this unit can do for me and how to properly maintain it. I would highly recommend this refurb product unless you feel more comfortable with a warranty. For me, I figure it won't break in that 18 month to 5 year period and if it does it probably won't cost what the warranty did to get the right parts.

I love this vacuum cleaner! It is lightweight, easy to use, and picks up so much more dog hair and dust, among other things than any other vacuum I have ever owned. I highly recommend this product.

I love my Dyson DC39. When I received it I did the ultimate vacuum challenge (vacuum with old one first then new one) and discovered how my Central Vac is a terrible vacuum!!! I picked up so much dog hair, dirt, dust bunnies!! I was Appalled!! No suction power can rival this vacuum. I will say that on my 3rd time vacuuming I could not get the triggerhead to turn back on, a common occurrence on the refurbished ones, so I was well aware this was a possibility when purchasing. I cleaned the brush checked every line to make sure there were no clogs but no luck. Getting it replaced from overstock was as easy as chatting with someone online for 5 min, waiting for a few hours for a response email from the warehouse saying they had the part I needed and it is being sent out. They told me to dispose of the broken head and hose however I felt necessary. SO happy I don't have to send it back as that is always a nightmare. All in all if you are aware that this is a machine and problems happen you will love this machine. I DO recommend buying the extended warranty for $46.00. There is no such thing as being over insured.

As my old vacuum recently died and my cat began shedding its winter coat, it was time to upgrade to the bigtime in vacuum cleaners - Dyson. The day I got this thing I put it to the test and went through every attachment, cleaning everything in sight, including my cats scratch post house thing that she lays on and was coated in her hair. This vacuum had no problem whatsoever picking the hair up off of anything. I cannot recommend it more for pet owners!

Super powerful. Cleans amazingly well. The only negative i have about the machine is it's size. It's too big to fit under kitchen and bathroom cabinets, chairs, couches and beds. This is my second Dyson. Our previous Dyson - DC39 was a canister vac and slim to fit under all those things easily. I miss that.

I've had a DC23 animal canister vacuum for some time, and use the hard flooring attachment in most of my home (carpet is only in the bedrooms). I've been impressed with my canister vacuum from Dyson enough that I have their dusting and allergy attachments, as well as the mattress tool. Due to this in most cleaning situations I use the vacuum in my home and love how whatever dust, dander, and dirt both myself and my dog produce goes in the trash can instead of getting spread around. Due to my great success with my Dyson canister, when my boss renovated a home and put in ALLOT of stone flooring i acquired this Dyson for his staff there., along witht he ahrd floor tool. They LOVE IT!. Due to this success of the vacuum itself and the hard floor tool, I am getting them the dusting and other cleaning accessories to go with it. There is only one problem, I am now jealous and want one of the newer model Ball canister vacuums as well!! ~ (\/) It's really that good

I was vacuuming with my Dyson DC 39 and had to pause to write this review. I love it! Definitely watch the brief instructional on their link before you use it. I can't believe the debris my other vacuum left behind. This model is so easy to use - it goes right under everything and is so lightweight. I read one reviewer complain that the brush doesn't spin - it does spin. You control it with the on/off button (for carpet to hard surface floors). My house is 95% hardwood and I have two dogs. I can finally get a nice clean with a vacuum! The ball technology is on the head as well as the canister so both pieces swivel with your movement. I can get under all furniture with ease, even furniture that is low to the ground. The vacuum lays down flat and swivels beautifully. Since you can control the brush and turn it off for hard surface floors, debris doesn't "kick back" when you vacuum over it (like with all other vacuums). It's so much easier and cleaner than sweeping. I was intimidated at first because the unit is very high-end but after turning it on it was so simple to use. The unit comes with two additional attachments for cleaning. One is an extendable narrow cleaner with a soft bristle head and the other is a small vacuum-head shaped attachment. These will attach at the head, at the end of the "rod" and at the end of the nozzle, allowing for so many uses. Also, the vacuum is very quiet. I definitely recommend this - it's the last vacuum you'll ever buy. As far as being refurbished, I went ahead and bought Overstock's protection plan since the refurbished models come with a 6-month warranty (vs Dyson's usual warranty). The Dyson technology is absolutely wonderful!

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.
