I was looking for a well built vacuum cleaner that has a roller brush for area rugs that also works on hardwood floors. This vacuum does both and does a great job. The 25' self winding cord is just one of the really nice side benefits of owning and using this vacuum. The head is flexible and can get under our sofa and most of our living room, dining room and kitchen chairs. It is quiet to use. Easy to carry around handle if needed. The canister rolls freely behind as you vacuum. I have used all of the tools and have not been disappointed. With some vacuums you have to repeat the same pattern over the same area to get it clean but this vacuum does it with one sweep. I have changed the bag once-- not hard to do. I assembled the machine when it came. So,e have said it was a little difficult. Take your time and think a bit European efficiency and you won't have a problem. Our eldest came home for a visit and used it and said it was a great machine and liked the swiveling head and the fact that it was quiet. Overall just really happy and satisfied with this machine.
I like the fact that this vacuum has two filters. When you turn it on, it's like starting a car. You can immediately feel the power. Before using this Dyson for the first time, I vacuumed my carpets with my previous vacuum. I was amazed at how much this Dyson removed after the pre-vacuum job I did. I had to empty the chamber twice! I knocked off one star for the heft. This vacuum is a little clunky and a bit heavy but it get's the job done quickly! I also like the fact that the power cord is long and the attachments are easy to use and secure to the vacuum. I would absolutely recommend this vacuum to friends and family.
