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!!!
