Summary: Finally decided to try a Dyscon but wanted to save some money so we picked up a refurbished one as a Lighting Deal to save a lot of money. We like it so much we are considering getting a full size version.
Summary: I wanted to interject because I'm also an owner of the Shark Rotator Lift-Away. One of the biggest debates in consumer electronics is iOS vs Android. Well, in the vacuum world, it's Dyson vs Shark (specifically, the Shark Rotator Lift-Away).
Excerpt: We also purchased the pet accessories. We can use it on the furniture or floor/carpet and the Dyson does a wonderful job. Better than expected. My wife is thrilled that we have one and she tells her friends about it.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Easy to Use, Efficient, Quality Construction, Reliable
Sad and disappointed with my Dyson, but it's getting better!

Summary: I bought this Dyson about 3 or 4 years ago and was so excited to get one; I had heard so many wonderful reviews. I have pets and it was very important to me to have something that picks up pet hair and dirt. It was ok at performance and it picked up so so.
Excerpt: requires more work on deeper pile carpeting leaving a streak down the middle on carpet. Unit could be more flexible. Very thin plastic dust cup. Have to pull dog hairs out of cup and wash cup frequently.
Pros: Easy To Empty, Easy to Use, Efficient, Lightweight, Long Power Cord, Powerful/Good Suction
Summary: OK, I just finished using this item again and HAVE to write the review now. Previously (and still do) have a Dyson DC14 Animal which has worked well for many years. Unfortunately, there are too many tradeoffs with a compact version of the same/similar.
