Excerpt: After using for 5 years, I hate this vacuum. It doesn't pick up needles from a Christmas tree very well nor a lot of other things. I have had it to a repair place multiple times because of the poor suction and the repair guy told me that the Dyson's are not that good.
Excerpt: The dyson animal vacuum isn't the worst vacuum in the world, but it certainly isn't worth the money. It isn't any better at picking up the animal hair than any other vacuum I've owned. for it to pick up the best, you have to hold it almost completely upright.
Excerpt: I was so excited when I purchased the Dyson DC14 machine, but that didn't last long. It was great for about a month then it seemed to leave behind hair in the carpet - the suction isn't that wonderful and gets worse as your vacuum ages. It's also very clumsy and heavy.
The Dyson 14 can clean well but is mostly full of fluff.

Excerpt: My husband works at The Home Depot. He has kept an eye on the Dyson's in his store for me for years. We heard all the hype and watched all the convincing TV commercials, but I still wasn't willing to spend $450+ on a vacuum cleaner.Last year they marked down the** Dyson 14 All Floor yellow model**...
Summary: I own a Dyson DC17. It works GREAT. I love it and I'm not the "Oh look at this vacuum!" kind of guy. But it does work awesomely. So I bought my mom this DC14 after she said she would like one. Crap.
Excerpt: My mother in law purchased this for us. I couldnt see paying that much for a vacuum. It worked great at first. But after a while it just didnt work the same. I do not the difference between a cheap walmart vacuum and this dyson. I love the bagless feature.
Wanted to Love It, But Couldn't....Broke within minutes

Summary: Oh, I wanted to love this vacuum. I paid extra for overnight shipping and paced around until it arrived. From the beginning, this was looking like a good purchase. Even though it's a refurbished unit, it came in excellent packaging and looked brand new.
Summary: The vaccuum came in great condition and seems to work well. My only complaint (and it's a big one) is that the warranty information in the product subscription is wrong. Really wrong. It claims the vaccuum comes with a 5 year warranty but it's only a 6 month warranty if you buy it refurbished.
Summary: After reading the reviews, and seeing that this was on sale, I decided to take the plunge as well. My other vacuum was constantly needing belts or filters, so, I thought I would see what happens with the Dyson. It worked well.
