  • Great Vacuum Awesome Price
    Verified Purchase

    I've been a Dyson user for 12 years. I ordered the upright for my cleaning business. Wow! They really improved the newer model of this vacuum! The suction is awesome. It is light like they say and easy to maneuver. It also didn't get jammed up when it sucked up a shoelace. I was able to just pull it right out without turning off the machine and continue vacuuming. It works like a brand new machine. I can't tell it's refurbished. Great deal!

    We have had a Dyson dc18 for many years. We purchased it refurbished also and never had any problems with it. I didn't read the instructions and just found out it had a washable filter. I washed it after 7 years although it had no loss of suction. I also dropped it many times when vacuuming because i'm handicapped.yes it is plastic but very durable.So' I took it upstairs and bought a Dc40 for downstairs.It seems just as durable with equal suction.I don't think I would ever buy another brand.There is no playing with bags to change.Just push the button and empty the canister.

  • Looks too good to be true, then I opened the box.
    Verified Purchase

    I was looking for a new durable and powerful vacuum that could handle pet hair, with upholstery attachments and the works. I've already purchased a new handheld Dyson and after reading the reviews I was convinced. Having also purchased some "refurbished" products before I trusted this would be of the same quality. I couldn't wait to open the box when the Dyson DC40 arrived. The instructions were simple, just snap together the parts and then start vacuuming! It was perfect. As I unwrapped the different plastic parts, I found the main handle to be completely bent, nearly broken. I thought this didn't seem right, but I tried putting the vacuum together anyway. The other parts were perfect but the handle just wouldn't snap into place. Maybe this is what you get when your purchase a "refurbished" product? But I imagined there must be some form of quality control? How could Dyson and Overstock.com expect someone to pay $XXX for a vacuum that comes shipped and packaged with a broken handle? Seems pretty unfair. I managed to tape the handle in place but when I tested the vacuum I had to hold it with two hands. The overall feel of the vacuum is somewhat clumsy and the plastic, while supposedly durable, feels cheap. The attachments fall off and the rollerball makes it unsteady. While the refurbished Dyson does pick up the pet hair, it doesn't work well for anything larger, like say, a Cheerio, without using the nozzle. Overall, I'm extremely disappointed in the lack of qualitty control from this first order with Overstock.com. I thought I'd be as satisfied with this Dyson as with the new one I'd bought a while back. Now, to get the vacuum handle "repaired" I would need to deal with Dyson customer service and end up not having the vacuum for a while. Not sure whether it is better to make do with a taped handle or try to get it fixed. Maybe this is what you get from a "refurbished" product from Dyson/Overstock? My recommendation would be to read reviews on Cnet and either spend the money on a new Dyson or try one from the more affordable competition. I'm extremely disappointed in this experience and wouldn't order something like this again. Looks like you really do get what you pay for. That said, if I could afford a new Dyson DC40, I would have purchased one. I think that new, they are great products.

    Verified Purchase

    I am very happy with this vacuum especially at the price. I have never purchased anything refurbished so I was I little nervous, but it came appearing practically brand new. My only complaint is that it is not as good at picking up particles off our wood floors when the brushes are turned off. Otherwise, it is excellent on carpets and rugs making them look and smell new each time. It is light enough to carry upstairs and has all the additional attachments you need-3 in total.

  • This vacuum really sucks in a good way.
    Verified Purchase

    Really impressed with Dyson. This is our first bag-less vacuum and wow are we satisfied. No more throwing money in the trash, on our bagged vacuum. With two dogs and two cats the Dyson DC 40, is a God send. Works well on both hardwood and carpet. A real favorite of ours is the really long reach with the attachment, which is built right into handle. We can vacuum our entire staircase without worrying about lifting the vacuum, as it sits at the bottom of the stairs.

  • Perfect Vacuum
    Verified Purchase

    This vacuum works wonderfully even though I bought it refurbished. It's lightweight and great for my mom who is the one that uses it most. We don't have any pets but we needed this vacuum because our carpets get dirty easily. The suction is amazing. I always heard that Dyson was a great brand and I'm glad I purchased it!

  • Great for shome without Big Dogs
    Verified Purchase

    This is a great vacuum, it transitions so easily from rug to carpet to hardwood. However the small canister makes it more ideal for smaller homes, and it is NOT build to deal with excessive dog hair. I have a St. Bernard and Newfoundland and this vacuum could not deal with the amount of hair they shed otherwise I loved it. It also has a short cord, so again better for smaller homes but GREAT suction.

  • Not the one for me
    Verified Purchase

    Maybe it was the one I received, but it was loud and smelled as if plastic was burning. Had to return it. One thing for sure- overstock is the best and easiest way to return the product even thou I had to pay shipping back it is still no hassle return and processing. Suction on this was not impressive at all considering the price, maybe I was just lucky and happy with my old shark. Maybe it is just me, everybody I know loves dyson.

  • So Far, So Good
    Verified Purchase

    Our vacuum had clearly been used quite a bit before it was refurbished which I was pretty surprised about. I guess I expected it to be more like a refurbished electronic where you can barely tell that it's not brand new. That was my own fault for having that preconceived notion though. So far, we love it! It works 1,000x better than our nasty old vacuum and was super affordable. If anything, the previous owners just broke it in perfectly. :) No major complaints here.

  • Refurbished - No problems
    Verified Purchase

    Vacuum arrived on time and well packaged. Assembled in <5 minutes including time spent reading the directions. Vacuum performs a one would expect from Dyson It came with crevice tool, upholstery tool, and small brush, along with the powered beater bar. Makes vacuuming less of a chore by being easy to maneuver and sucking up everything . Another great Overstock value.

  • excellent buy for the monet
    Verified Purchase

    I hadn't found a vacuem cleaner that my wife liked until I got this one. We have a dog that sheds and nothing did a very good job according to her. a new Dyson animal is usually in the *** price range. But when I was able to get this one on sale for under *** I had to get it. I know its reburbished, but most refurbished stuff never really had anything wrong to begin with and even if it did , these were checked and fixed by Dyson themselves , so you know its going to work. The only problem we find is there is no place on board to put the power tool for pets. Otherwise it works amazingly. And the wife is happy .

  • Dyson DC40 Animal Upright Refurbished Review
    Verified Purchase

    I have been using a 10 year old Hoover given to my bf & I by his mother for the past few years and this is such a great replacement since I have two dogs in the house. I live in an 1100 sq. ft. condo and this animal dyson vacuum cleans up everything so well. I have two beagles that shed like crazy and on top of that, my hair is all over the place so this vacuum does the trick. It goes around corners really well and switching from rug to floor is a breeze. The extra attachments are an added bonus as well. I read reviews that people had to empty the container multiple times a use but I found I only had to empty it 1-2 per use (per week). That may be b/c my condo isn't gigantic though. All in all, great product, I highly recommend!

  • Wonderful Product

    We were quite dubious about purchasing a ''refurbished'' vacuum. However from the day of arrival, this vacuum has proved its worth in gold. Easy to assemble and works brilliantly. Thank you Overstock.
