I was hesitant due to the cost. Also, I wasn't sure the power would be enough to vacuum floors. It really works for cleanups. I have mostly wooden floors, some tile, area rugs and only one room that is fully carpeted. For me, it really works as well as I had hoped. Easy to use and it picks ups the things I track in from the garage and outside. I have a cat and it does a good job of picking up the fur. I had an issue with the cleaning head, the strip of red material that slides on smooth surfaces, came off. I called Dyson and they shipped me a complete new cleaning head. Things that need to be improved are: the trigger is uncomfortable to use and when the battery is low on power it completely stops. There is no gradual loss of power like most battery powered tools, this unit just stops without any warning. When that first happened I thought it broke. To sum it up I'm glad I ordered it and I'm glad I saved some money bu ordering a reconditioned unit that was like new.
