We have 2 large dogs that shed a lot. We vaccuum every day and this is the first cleaner that has picked up all the dog hair imbeded deeply in the carpets. I would recommend this to all pet owners.

I was prepared to be blown away by this vacuum, what with all the hype around the Dyson product line. Alas, I've been very pleased with my purchase since it arrived just over a month ago, but the DC24 is far from life changing. Allow me to elaborate... *Please note that this is the refurbished model, and despite it looking less than 100% clean upon arrival, it's basically good as new. Lets start off with the CONS: -Short Power Chord... as many have stated, this chord on this puppy is pretty short, and doesn't recoil automatically as my old vacuum did. You may find yourself looking to use an extension chord to avoid plugging and re-plugging throughout the house. -Inefficient Hand Tool... switching between the normal floor vacuum function and the hand function is a pretty annoying hassle. You have to take the entire main hand out of the tube to switch over, then snap it back into place to continue with the floor. This is annoying, and I find myself doing it several times each time I clean my tiny apartment. This becomes time consuming and tedious. -Slightly Too Narrow... if only this thing were a few inches wider on each side, the job would get done that much faster. On the bright side, it fits in smaller spaces. -Rotating Brush Switches to Inactive Mode Often... the brush will occasionally disengage. You can easily fix this by pressing a button on the lower front of the machine, but it's mildly annoying. -Several Passes... don't let anyone fool you (especially the commercials). This thing may have "superior suction," but you still have to make several passes on thick carpet to get all of the dirt. All that negative aside, this really is a good vacuum. Outside of the obvious, here are a few PROS to owning the DC24: -Basically Good As New... I have zero regrets about purchasing the refurb model. Assuming that it doesn't crap out in the next couple of years, I stand by the "almost good as new" rating. -Fits in Small (and low) Spaces Very Easily... you can get in under the front of the couches very easily, for example. -Excellent and Consistent on Floors... it may not be a lot faster that other machines, but the Dyson really does pick up as much or more dirt that any vacuum I've had before. -Light and Easy to Carry... one of the major advantages to the DC24 is it's light frame, so it's easy to move about. -Mobility and Maneuverability... speaking of the light frame, this this glides along well and is easy to maneuver through tough spaces. Overall I'd give this vacuum a solid 4 out of 5 stars. I was able to get this for well under $200 when it went on sale, along with a large O-Reward credit. I wouldn't buy this for anything over that $180/$200 price point. All said, it's a good vacuum. But I do suggest tempering your expectations. Mine were probably unrealistically high, which I think results in my decision to dock the DC24 1 star out of 5. This vacuum isn't going to change your life, or even the way you vacuum, but it will make your home just a little bit cleaner than any non-dyson vacuum I've come across.

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.

I ordered this refurbished and it came looking like new. the assembly was super easy (click things into place). the suction is great! and it's super easy to use. light weight, and has a nice handle. i recommend this to my mom and she got the same one. she's more experienced in what "good" vacuum cleaners are, and she's very happy with it too. overall, no complaint. i recommend this product, and overstock had a very competitive price.

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!

As a fan of Dyson vacuum cleaners, but also someone who loves a bargain, I knew that Overstock.com was the place to buy one. Per usual, I was not disappointed. While the vacuum was refurbished, I have come to appreciate that refurbished for Overstock does not mean that it is a product one should avoid buying. The vacuum looked like new, had all of the parts, instruction booklet and warranty. Best of all, it worked like a dream. You simply cannot beat the price or value of items like this on Overstock.com. It is where I always go first before Bed, Bath and Beyond.

I bought this vacuum set over 3 months ago and I absolutely love it! This is my first Kirby purchase, and order from overstock. When I received the order, I was pleasantly surprised and impressed with both how well the item was packaged and how pristine the re-furbished product was. The product looked brand new! It was very easy to assemble. I actually referenced to a youtube video to help facilitate the assembly and use of the product *. The power of this vacuum is incredible and does a phenomenal job just as well as my sister's Sentria model. It felt, looked and performed like a brand new vacuum cleaner. My carpeting looks new and revived every time I use it. My home now constantly looks and feels clean. I noticed the air feeling cleaner as a result of the HEPA. I have used pretty much all the attachments I particularly love the 13 foot hose attachment, the pet tool ( which I use on my furniture). On the pet tool I learned to be aware to keep the rotary brush flat against the object you are vacuuming so the suction can work at its fullest (also remember to cover all the holes on the suction control grip completely by using the sliding valve located on top of the handle of the hose). I love the style and the color! I appreciate the extra HEPA bags and the belts. Thanks for the Incredible product and wonderful service! This product is definitely a keeper and will continue to use it for years to come. :)

Unlike some other reviewers I had no hesitation about a reconditioned or refurbished product. This product is excellent. I am a member of a Facebook group about all things animal, all things pet. I posted a request for recommendations--the best vacuum cleaner for pet hair. (I have 3 cats, two of whom are longhaired, and two dogs.) Somebody on the page recommended the Dyson DC40 Animal Upright Vacuum Cleaner. Did extensive research and knew I could not afford a new one, so was very glad to see a refurbished one on Overstock, for less than half the price of a new one. I am happily and easily vacuuming up pet hair and everything else. One complaint, and it is minor: it reaches the MAX level too soon! But emptying the cylinder is so easy that it's really not a problem.
The best way to eliminate dust, dirt and pet hair from flooring and upholstery in your home is with a good vacuum cleaner. Vacuum cleaners have been in use for well over 100 years and have since evolved into a whole host of advanced, multipurpose cleaning devices. With the wide variety of vacuum cleaners available on the market today, making some considerations before you buy will help you select the best vacuum cleaner for your particular cleaning needs.
