I wanted a vac that wouldn't break the bank, but was also a step up from my inexpensive canister vac. It had to be relatively light, quiet, with a long wand and a wide bare floor attachment. Most of my home is hardwood, with many throw rugs, and we have 2 cats. This vacuum is exactly what I wanted! The wide hard floor brush works flawlessly...maneuvers around furniture legs and picks up everything from fur to little pieces of whatever. The wand extends long enough that I am no longer stooping over to vacuum. The motor "purrs". The cord retracts ALL the way in. It isn't the lightest vacuum on the market but it is light and is easy enough to carry up and down the stairs. And the hard floor attachment allows me to vacuum all our throw rugs. The one thing I don't like is that it requires bags, but then again, dumping the plastic canister from the old vac into my trashcan was not always pleasant so I can deal with buying bags. I am very pleased with this purchase.
This is the perfect canister vacuum for me. It is light weight, easy to maneuver and does the job. Overstock got it to my door in less than a week....my floors look great!
As a owner of a 125#+ dog I use my vacuum constantly. This one does the job.. is like weight and so easy to clean! The way removing canister and push button release let's me empty the contents without ever coming into contact with them. I love my Dyson!
