Excerpt: I finally purchased this dyson vacuum after much debate and weighing out the price. I have found it to be worth every penny. I had previously used a bag less vacuum and I thought it had great suction. Once I got my dyson and started using it, I found my other vacuum was not great at all.
Pros: Easy To Empty, Easy to Use, Efficient, Lightweight, Long Power Cord, Powerful/Good Suction
Summary: So I ended up going through two of these refurbished DC41 models before I finally just gave up and bought a new one. The first model had a plug that kept shoritng out. The second model had issues with the "hammerhead" part of the vacuum.
Summary: Really, really does a great job sucking up dirt, crumbs and cat hair -- that's why they call it "animal" I guess. Kinda gross to realize how much stuff my old sweeper left behind. However, Dyson could do a better job with the assembly instructions.
Summary: The price is high but you get what you pay for. after a year of use there is no diminished performance and it still works like new! I found this cheaper a few other places but I have always had really good success with Newegg; that combined with no interest for a year is why I purchased it from...
Pros: This is the best vacuum that I have ever owned! this vacuum has made my wife extremely happy! Easy to use. Easy to maintain. Can complete and task that is set in front of it! If you have pets this is probably the best vacuum on the market!
Summary: We have two Beagles and a Havanese (similar to a Bichon). Upon receiving this, I vacuumed with my new Dyson after having vacuumed with my previous "animal" vacuum from another brand. The Dyson picked up an entire bin full of dirt including a lot of animal hair.
for the price we paid for it I could cry when I think about the money we wasted. This thing doesn't pick up ANYTHING

Summary: I wish I could give this no stars, for the price we paid for it I could cry when I think about the money we wasted. This thing doesn't pick up ANYTHING, even the smallest crumb won't get sucked up, you can go over and over the same spot and do little more than push the dirt around.
Summary: I had the original Dyson Animal and I LOVED it. I told everyone who would listen how amazing it was. We have two large dogs, a cat, and two rambunctious boys, but you sure couldn't tell it from the way our floors and furniture looked!
