So Woot is now deleting comments they don't like. Fine. Sorry Woot. The fact that today's offering is a $250 vacuum means that it simply sucks more. When was the last time anyone saw a $25 Sansa for sale on Woot? Anyone?

I bought this vac refurbished from Woot less than a year ago. It worked great; definitely picks up the animal hair. However, one day after using the wand/hose on some furniture, I put it back in the handle and proceeded to use it as the upright vac but the wand/hose combination popped right out of the handle. Nothing would keep it secure. From a vac supply web site I ordered the little part that is supposed to lock the wand/hose in place ($1.25 for the part and $10 shipping!). Replaced the part and it STILL didn't work. Contacted Dyson and within a week they had sent a free replacement wand/hose with their deepest appologies for the problem (nice folks!). I should have contacted them in the first place. I don't know if this is a design flaw or I just got a funky vac. Anyway, when all is said and done I sold my Dyson for $100 and bought an LG cannister which I absolutely LOVE!

To me, the Dyson feels flimsy and cheap, especially for the price. Were all of the internals and some of the structure metal instead of plastic, it would feel more sturdy. If I can flex the entire unit with one hand, how long is it really going to last?
For that reason I bought a Riccar.
I don't have a Dyson. Feel free to collapse in shock.
(I do however, have a vac which works fine, so I don't exactly need a Dyson at the moment, which explains much. They do seem like nice machines though.)
I'm just hanging out, really.
