I am very satisfied with my investment in this refurbished Dyson. It was a great value and finally affordable during the Dyson-wide promotion in May 2012. I shopped around and O.co was the best site with the best total price including shipping. More impressive was that it arrived in 4 days. I became obsessed with finding a vacuum that never loses suction. I've owned several lightweight Sharks and they were never strong enough and regurgitated the collected dustballs and hair masses back on my carpet. Thus, those lightweight uprights were used for crumbs on the hard floors. I knew this had excellent suction (and that I had dirty floors) when I first installed it and gave it a test run on my small bathroom area rug. In the first 5 minutes, layers of dust and hair filled the debris canister quickly. I love the canister access and release and replace by accessing one button with a thumb. I like that the rug roller propels the vacuum to move swiftly. When it switches to rug mode, the brushes spin loudly as soon as you step to recline the handle, this is not a big issue. Overall the strength of the suction is all that matters. Glad I purchased this refurbished model vs a used product on Craigslist.
