Been thinking about getting a Dyson for some time now since other vacuums seem to be lasting only a year or so with my cat and dog but couldn't bring myself to spend that much money on one. I am so glad I did. Love the self adjusting base plate for different types of floors! Works perfectly going from hardwood to tile to carpets. The extendable handle takes some getting used to but its getting better. Overstock had it at my door in a few days and couldn't be happier with the purchase.
