Summary: I gave my old Dyson to my kids and got this model for my place that is all tile. It does the excellent job I expected it to do. The head & wand is a great design. Turning the brush on/off works so easy.
Summary: My husband and I were skeptical about spending $300+ on a vacuum, but we're so glad we read the reviews and took the leap. We have three cats, one is a long hair. My old upright just moved the dirt from one place to another. The first time I used my new Dyson I had to empty the bin three times! I ran it again a few days later and emptied it twice! Now I use my Dyson daily, empty the bin once and I know my floors are clean. We are believers!!!
Summary: Was in very good condition - looked new. 4 stars is more about the design of the hose, storage of the vacuum is hampered because of the hose not wrapping around the body of the vacuum as it does with some other Dyson models.
Summary: As a girl with long hair, I have broken every vacuum I've ever owned (unbelievably frustrating). I had heard really good things about Dyson vacuums both for their cleaning power as well as their ease of use, and decided to go with the refurbished model as a way to try out a Dyson without splurging for the $600 brand new one. My house is mostly hardwood, which this is great for.
