I think you're ready for a Neato!
As God is my witness, I thought turkeys could fly.

If it makes you feel any better, for $250 you got the DC 25 model. Not sure what the differences are, but you probably got more for more.
It's 5 o'clock somewhere.

Bought 4 Dyson cuums from woot, all refurbished.. all working great. We have one on each floor now.
--Bought the DC14 w/ Mini turbine head in 2007, still use it, my favorite one.
--Bought the DC28 Animal for my dad and his long-haired golden retriever a year ago. He loves it and threw away every sub-$100 vacuum he owned.
--Bought this DC24 over a year ago. Good vac, fun to use, but small bin and short cord.
--Just received the DC-23 canister vac yesterday, love the cord recoil, but haven't had time to play with the vac much. Called and chatted with customer support yesterday to talk about storage of the accessories and wrapping of the hose, they were awesome.
My dad damaged his DC28 just outside of woot's- crappy warranty. Apparently Dyson's don't like wet drywall dust and joint compound, who would have thought! Regardless, he sent it in for $75 service, was content with the charge, and missed his Dyson every day it was gone.
EDIT: Also a little upset the accessories and HEPA filters are not interchangeable among models. I would love to use the mini-turbine from the DC14 with the canister vac DC23 :-(
EDIT2: Overall, I am happy with the Dyson products. I'm not the type to make up justifications for an "overpriced, designer" vacuum. I wouldn't have paid $400-600/ea for these models, but the woot refurbs have been good to us. If I didn't believe in Woot|Dyson, I wouldn't have bought 4.
(I'm secretly hoping Dyson/Woot sends me a free Air Blade hand dryer in my next bag-o-goodness)
