Wow that is expensive for a vacuum! Is this normal price for a refurb Dyson?

The wife got one of these a while ago... Sadly not on Woot. But I can vouch that it works great, no complaints. I like the clear view dirt area where you can see the exact dirt level it is at before it needs emptying. No more guessing if the bag is full and also no more needing to buy replacement bags. Highly recommended. Seeing this price wished we would have bought it on Woot.

I would only buy this vacuum if every time I turned it on, it said "Dyson" the way the guy does in the commercials.

I own this vacuum and love it. It works very well, is easy to care for (getting hair out of the brush and cleaning the filters), and I haven't had a problem with it yet (2 1/2 years now).

I bought one of these the last time they were offered, about a month or so ago. It's amazing how much dirt is gets out of our carpet that our old Panasonic vacc wasn't getting. I'm glad I got it.

This animal upright vacuum only cleans Kangaroos wallabies and other upright animals, I presume. Makes it of rather limited use, surely?

I feel like every week I see some sort of Dyson vacuum product for sale. It's funny that right now on Moofi another vacuum is being sold. I can't help but imagine a warehouse full of a vacuum army, preparing itself for the battle that is dust, dirt, lost change and pet hair.

I wish I was working so I could afford one of these. I just found out two days ago that my dog chewed the cord off my vacuum. Maybe this vacuum would fight back. If anyone wants to support my "In Desperate Need of a New Vacuum" cause, let me know!

What happened to the comments about 2 for Tuesday?

Anyway, we are getting two things with this vacuum; 1) the vac itself and 2) the dirt in the vacuum from the previous owner. So, it's still a two-4-Tuesday deal.

Have this vaccuum...got it new for less than list two years ago. Have three golden retrievers in a two story home with oodles of carpeting.

Our carpets look new every time I run the thing, even if I do have to empty the bin four times for a 12x13 room. Works awesomely well with minimal maintenance. Great for my allergies too.

I want a Dyson with a big ball on it. More manouevrable and just generally geekily cool. He invented that big ball back in the 80s for a new wheelbarrow, but nobody wanted a new wheelbarrow, so he gets to add them to his vacuums instead.

Pros: It works. I honestly don't know if it works any better than the non-animal Dysons though. No bags needed and cleanable HEPA filters means no constantly buying consumables for it.

Cons: Seems to fill up quickly. If you let it fill too much it can be a chore getting all the hair out of the can.

I have three sheddy dogs (husky, collie), so this thing has gotten a lot of use over the past couple years I've had it. $479.99 new at BB&B, about $380 with their omnipresent 20% off coupons, so you're only saving about $80 off of the new price with this deal.

People that sell Rainbows told me that a Dyson voids the warranty on carpet. Is this true? If so, why?

My roomba is now hiding in a hall closet and seems afraid to come out. I think it even set the barriers up against the doorjam.

I purchased a refurbished Dyson DC14 vacuum four years ago. It still works like a charm. It's suction is just as strong today as it was in June of 2007. I have had zero problems with it and it is by far the best vacuum cleaner I have ever owned.

anyone have a consumer reports subscription that can tell me what these rate? I know that a lot of the dysons actually get so-so reviews from them

Edit: and does the DC25 rate the same or worse?

Um, that's a saleguy wanting you to spend even MORE on his machine than a dyson. My previous vac was a TriStar (another door-to-door only type) and it cost far more to maintain than this dyson in the same amount of time. (no need to replace inserts or filters, no bags...and it all comes apart with a quarter)

According to some magazine I recently read where they compared the DC28, DC25 (Ball), and that Eureka vacuum that is claiming to be better than a Dyson at a fraction of the price, the DC28 performed the best (and the Eureka, the worst.)

Consumer Reports gives them so-so ratings based on the up-front costs and the fact that they are rather loud and heavy, and this model is more so than others. It weighs in around 14 pounds and doesn't work on stairs very well (I have to unplug from downstairs about halfway and then plug back in upstairs, all while balancing it against my leg so I can use the attachments).

Verbatim summarization on the DC25 from consumerreports.com

CR's Take

Overall, this is a good upright vacuum that is best suited for cleaning bare floors and picking up pet hair with very low emissions.

The DC25 scored a 54 compared to the DC28's 67 (which actually was a recommended buy)

I tried to buy, but "Hawaii" has been taken out of the "ship your stuff" section. It's really a shame that woot doesn't want my money.

This is an issue for all cyclone vacs. Just something to deal with if you like the style.

We didn't remove it. The only site that has ever shipped outside the 48 contiguous states is Shirt. Sorry though.
