Woot and Dyson refurbished vacuums. Yes a lot of joking is posted when "yet another" Dyson is offered on Woot, but as the owner of a Woot/Dyson factory refurbished vacuum I'm telling you it's one of the best purchases you can make on Woot and I'll tell you why.
I own a DC41 Animal upright, purchased this Monday from Woot. The refurbished unit arrived Wednesday and it looked and smelled Brand NEW. I have had no issues and customer service at Dyson are second to none!
Also, relating to today's Woot, I own a Dyson DC44 Animal, the slightly improved model over todays DC35 and this vacuum is amazing! I tried the DC35 at my Sears store and only went with the 44 because of personal choices. All together this DC35 is a great, high powered, well made, durable vacuum. Just remember it will NOT replace a full sized upright, nor will it clean your entire house in one charge. So if it fits your need for a handheld, please buy it. I use mine every day and it's performance still amazes me!
Thanks and good luck. If anybody has questions about either of my Dysons, etc. just let me know and I'll reply with answers.
