I am giving this 4 stars because it needs an additional piece (included in the kit) to attach the accessories to my vacuum and Dyson products are pricey. Other than that, I cannot say enough about Dyson vacuums and accessories. As you can see when you shop for a vacuum, Dyson has set the standard and other brands are playing catch up. Visiting their website, you can even purchase parts if something wears out or breaks. Dyson makes a quality product, and it doesn't come cheap. In the long run it will save you money and headaches.
