  • Best canister I've ever owned
    Verified Purchase

    This vacuum is everything dyson promised. Quiet, mobile, strong suction that doesn't decrease. We will see how it holds up over the long haul but so far Im impressed.

  • I spent 45 minutes cleaning the vac before using!
    Verified Purchase

    I unpacked the Dyson a few days ago and noticed it needed to be cleaned. The electric cord was filthy, part of the intake and the body of the vac needed a good cleaning. I had to straighten out the prongs on the electric cord. Whoever used it previously must have yanked it of the electric socket at an angle. This vac should not have been sent out like this. Someone did not do their job cleaning it up. Overstock should give me a credit for my time and for using my cleaning supplies. I purchased 2 other Dysons from overstock before this one- the others were fine.

  • For moi?!?
    Verified Purchase

    Neither my wife nor I thought we could ever "afford" a Dyson, but when our old Kenmore konked out, this seemed like a good bargain. It is really great; lightweight, powerful, and easy to maintain. It is very anthropomorphic, and reminds me of the little robot in Silent Running. I saw nothing about it that telegraphed "refurbished."

  • Dont buy
    Verified Purchase

    I oredered this vacuum three times and three times it came damaged. Apparently, they do not fix the vac before they ship it out to a new customer. They clean it up nice and repackage it but fail to inspect and repair damage. Do not buy refurbished Dyson vac. You will be very disapointed.

  • Nice little vac
    Verified Purchase

    I got this to replace a big Miele that was going. It does a pretty good job but the high pitched sound it makes always makes me think there's something wrong with it. Emptying it is a mess, best to do outside over the trash. Even then you end up getting a bunch of dust in the face. Suction is pretty good but the roller bar, which shuts off when it detects an obstruction, shuts off frequently for no apparent reason and you have to wait while it resets itself to continue. Otherwise, a pretty good deal.

  • dyson vacuum
    Verified Purchase

    at first I had a difficult time putting the canister to the main fram; the only directions were photos and it was not clear. Well I thought "let's see if it works!" Just vacuumed my place 3 days prior to receiving it. I was shocked on how much dirt was in the canister; had to empty it twice. This has excellent suction and it does pick up. recommend this one to everyone.

    The condition was very questionable it was refurbished but that part seemed apparent the canister had some damage. Overall it is a good vacuum though.

  • Great Vacuum for Hard Floors
    Verified Purchase

    I have had a DC07 upright dyson for about 10 years now and been pleased with it for carpet but it does not do a good job on hard floors and my wife isn't able to lug it up the stairs. The DC39 does a great job on the hardwood floor but I wouldn't have gotten it (or any air-driven brush head) vacuum if I didn't already have the upright with the belt-driven brush head. I will say, however, that it does a better job on carpet than I expected. In spite of being 17+ lbs which is still a bit heavy for my wife's taste, the layout of the canister makes it easier to carry and much better for stairs than the upright. Suction is very strong (this model has higher "airwatts" than any other Dyson that I know of) and the two switches on the handle to release suction or turn the beater bar on/off are very convenient. Buyers should recognize, however, that an air-driven beater bar converts some of that suction into mechanical energy to spin the brush head, so the airwatt rating between this and a belt-driven upright is not a fair comparison. Without the beater bar on, this would be a fair head-to-head comparison between vacuums. The head is very maneuverable as well and I do like the retracting cord that you don't get with the uprights. Quality of construction seems good; I was skeptical about the main tube being plastic, but it's very sturdy and I expect it to hold up fine. The hose also seems plenty sturdy as well (this was a problem on the vacuum that this one is replacing). If this were new, I would have given it 5 stars but as a refurb, it did show more wear than I was hoping for but I guess that's the risk you take buying a refurb. I got the extended warranty since these vacuums have lots of little parts to break and that would cost a lot to repair. We have only had it a few days, so time will tell if it's reliable but with my last Dyson going strong after nearly 10 years, I'm not too concerned. We did strongly consider the DC50 (compact upright, very lightweight) but I did not feel good about the quality of construction of that vacuum. In particular, there is a single button to release the canister and then open it to empty the canister so if you pushed it down all the way by accident, you'd dump it's contents all over the vacuum while removing it. The DC39, by comparison, has two buttons (like my old Dyson): one to release the canister and another to dump it. Summary: If you don't have a lot of carpet, buy this vacuum. The canister layout (as opposed to upright) is better for stairs, better for maneuvering around objects, and less awkward to carry if you are a small person. Consider the extended warranty because it will be expensive to repair if it breaks.

  • Good light weight vacuum.
    Verified Purchase

    This vacuum is great and light weight but has one bad flaw, if you're not careful and you suck up the wrong thing it will get stuck in a place where you may not be able to get it out. If you look it up on the web you can find some videos of people taking it apart to remove the clog.

  • It Sucks
    Verified Purchase

    Dirt like no tomorrow. Easy to move about and cleans the floors very well. Disconnecting the dirt collector and dumping it is a brease. No bags to by and no dust blowing about.

    I love this vacuum. I bought a ********** canister and had to return it because the design was so poor. I opted for this refurbished Dyson and I have found it to be the best vacuum I have ever had. It is easy to use...the attachments disconnect and reconnect easily. I cannot believe how much dirt and hair it picks up. I also purchased the articulating hard floor tool. It also works great on my floors. Highly recommend this canister.
