I've had a Dyson for several years now, and LOVE it. When I noticed this kit was available, I knew had to have it, mostly motivated by a lust for the duster attachment. The day after I received the kit (fast shipping- Thanks Overstock!), I went over the house, top to bottom, picture frames, furniture, lamps, doo hickeys, ceiling fan, light fixtures, chandelier, etc. and was quite pleased with the results. The bristles on the duster were shorter and not as soft as I had expected, but this didn't seem to hinder performance. I could easily and successfully dust items that would be tedious to dust by hand, and certainly not dust-able with a standard attachment. Attaching it to the end of my telescoping wand let me dust our vaulted ceilings and beams without climbing a ladder. Very happy about that.... The flex-wand was extremely difficult for me to slide-out (using the push-button thingy), but I eventually got it. I couldn't get under my washer and dryer as I had hoped, and when I used it behind the W/D, it clogged with rogue bits of dry dog food rather quickly (maybe 5 or 6 little pieces....?) so I was a little disappointed with that. I'll have to give it another try in a different application. I briefly used the mattress tool under the seat cushions of my couch, and it performed well. Overall, still happy I bought it. I'm gonna be vacu-dusting the bacheesus out of my house from now on. Much easier and more satisfying than using other dusting methods. Ta-dah!
