I just got this vacuum and I really like it. It's powerful and my rugs look great. I was a little worried after reading some of the reviews about how it would clean linoleum and wood floors. It was very easy to turn off the rotating brush for the bare floors and that worked well on the throw rugs, too. The instructions were not at all what I am used to...that's why I gave it 4 stars. I had no problem putting the cleaner together, but the mini turbine attachment required online searches for help...even the Dyson site was of no help to me. So all in all I feel like I made a good choice with this vacuum.
