Always have to chime in on these! Bought one a zillion years ago on Woot. Love it! 3 teens, dog, cat, and husband track in all sorts of stuff and the Dyson works awesome! Before getting the Dyson went through 3 brand name vacuums in two years!! Love the washable filter and the fact that you can almost completely dissemble to get stuck items (which happens so rarely. I'm amazed at the things this vacuum picks up).
