My Dyson has seen light use for the last seven years or so. I bought it new. It's built like an American car: it's fairly obvious that some bits are more delicate than they should be, and you're always worried that something's about to fall off. But nothing has...yet.
I recommend Dysons to my friends, but only if they can get some form of discount. This is the latest model and seems to address some issues I never knew I had. I think if you see a good deal on a DC25, that's still worth buying. The DC24 (shorter, lighter) is sometimes on sale, too, but it's too much of a compromise.
Unless my DC25 breaks, I don't think I'll be buying one of these DC41st solely to upgrade.
