    Dyson, you can buy a new one when the the plastic bits break right after the warranty expires, but before that they work great.

    Depends on whether your wife prefers to suck or blow I guess.

    Wife wanted a Dyson. I thought it was an over priced gimick but my opinion counts for nothing so we got it anyway. Turns out its a really good vacuum. I would recommend to a friend. I can see though how plastic pieces could brea

    We have had a  dyson for years. I told the wife it was the wrong size and doesn't fit my hand ...but it works great for her  :))

    We did the rainbow thing where we did 12 demos and got it for free. It's definitely overpriced at $2,500, but they have an air tight pyramid scheme in place to where the sellers can make bank off the sell and referrals. We've had ours for over 5 years and still do not regret it.

    I got a Dyson DC7 when they first came out. That was before I even started dating my wife in 2002 I believe. Still works great only issue is I have replaced the long hose twice. We have 4 cats so this thing gets used 3 times a week and all I do is wash out the filter every couple months.

    Its megamaid. She's gone from suck to blow.

    I know it wasn't the OP's intent, but this thread is really helpful cause I'm on the market for a new vacuum. I'm looking at the Dyson DC65 Animal Complete.

    Convenient...yes.

    Clean well...no.

    If you don't believe me run a Dyson over the floor after you've hit it with your central vac.  You'll be amazed.

    I just picked up a Dyson DC65 Animal Complete tonight, which came with a free DC34 cordless handheld. B-) OMG...I don't know what I've been doing my adult life...surely the back and forth motion wasn't vacuuming. I actually feel quite disgusting after using this thing. My previous vacuum also had a canister so it's not like I'm just not used to seeing dirt and hair. We just vacuumed on Friday and this thing picked up more stuff in 3 minutes than the other did in 20.

    I'm a believer! :D

  • @cazzy, we're looking to get a vacuum.  My brothers wife sells Rainbows, but dag gone, that is to much!  

    Looking at the DC65 Animal Complete now.  What are your thoughts now that you have used it a while?

    Still love it! Thing is a beast and definitely would make a hooker covet it's sucking ability. :P It's always gross to see how much dog hair this thing picks up. The attachments are also quite wonderful, especially the mini turbine hand tool.

    Without hesitation, I recommend it!
