I bought this vacuum as an upgrade for myself for Christmas - I have owned a DC07 for 6 years and love it, but I wanted a lighter version. I love the Dyson vacuums - I suffer from numerous allergies and Dysons are the only vacuums I can use and not sneeze my head off every time I turn it on.I had read the other reviews and was a little worried about putting it together, but when it got here and I unpacked it, there was nothing to it.....it's not really a matter of assembly....it's just snapping the head on the bottom and sliding/snapping the hose assembly on the top - just look at the picture of the vacuum and it's a breeze. I love the lighter weight of the vacuum, and the fact that I still get the suction of the DC07 version.If you have an opportunity to own any Dyson vacuum, I would encourage you to take the plunge....you will never be satisfied with any other.
