My wife has been hounding me to replace our 5 year old Bissell canister vacuum. The practical side of me (read cheap) saw no reason to replace a vacuum that was working properly. Further, my wife wanted for us to get a several hundred dollar Dyson to replace it. It wasn't until this DC25 refurb deal came up that I seriously considered taking the plunge. Essentially I got a Dyson vacuum for two hundred dollars, after Overstocks discounted sale price and the club "O" rewards I got from buy it. The Bissell was right around $100 new, so if the Dyson performed twice as well, I'd feel happy about my purchase. When I received and assembled the Dyson, I did a side-by-side of the two vacuums on my area rug in our family room. The Bissell picked up some dirt and hair, while the Dyson picked up about four times the volume. The only downside to this model is the canister size, which due to the effectiveness of the vacuum, requires multiple canister cleanings to clean one room. Because this task is incredibly easy and relatively mess free, cleaning out the canister is not a burden at all. I would highly recommend this product.
