IT'S TRUE! I can't believe it....everything they say about the Dyson is TRUE. We have been through at least 5 vacuums in the last few years. One fell off the back of our moving truck during one of our many moves. One blew up. We even had central vac once. Our latest, a trusty red Hoover recently went on the brink, so I went and bought another Hoover at Costco. This time I didn't buy the cheapest one available there, but stepped it up a little bit to the Windtunnel. While I was wheeling my Windtunnel to the register, a lady actually stopped, and politely told me to go put it back and just buy the DYSON. I should have taken this as a sign, but of course I went on my way with the Windtunnel. I really hated it, and once my husband got a hold of it (he likes to clean)...he hated it as well. I joked that we could always go for the gold and buy the coveted DYSON (Costco sells the DC14) and he actually gave the green light!
I figured I better jump in the car and get right to it before he changed his mind. I actually was able to return BOTH Hoovers (score!....LOVE Costco), and therefore really didn't come out of pocket much. Got home, read the directions, assembled, started vacuuming and my life has been changed forever. Seriously. This thing is worth EVERY penny. After one quick vacuum of our bedroom and family room, the canister was full....REALLY disgusting! Little did I know, we've been living in filth.
