Who hasn't seen 'A Few Good Men' by now??... well, that famous line that Jack Nicholson growls out in the courtroom is what I thought of after seeing the canister after just one pass using this amazing vacuum. I'm not sure everyone can face the truth of how dirty their house really is before a Dyson arrives on the scene. I recently returned to the Pacific Northwest and the pollen was out in full force. Adding to that, I was staying at a friend's house and there were a total of 3 dogs and 4 chickens (okay, the chickens stay outside, but it just sounds more dramatic to add their feathers to the mix) and I was in allergy H-E-double toothpick. Something had to give... I'd been plotting my purchase of this vacuum and thought I was going to wait until I moved into my own apartment (with two of those dogs mentioned above), but I just couldn't wait. I could barely breathe. I have to admit I was a bit horrified (and maybe my knees buckled a little bit from the grossness of dust, hair and DANDER), but I got over it quickly and started vacuuming everything but the shower curtain. This little guy is a powerhouse!! An added bonus is this vacuum doesn't terrify one of my dogs who used to bark and bite at my old Hoover canister vacuum. Mind you it is not a stealth, near-silent vacuum, but Dyson has definitely worked some magic in the decibel department too. If you've got pets and you think you can handle the truth of what's really going on in your carpet, area rugs, furniture, MATTRESS!! then I HIGHLY recommend you pick up this machine. I've had no regrets and my allergy symptoms have virtually vanished.
