Mother has one and it's got to be the best one I've tried yet. It keeps dust mites and allergens away from carpets and furniture.

Thanks for your input, everyone! Well, we broke down and got one. The vacuum itself was onsale, plus you got a $100 Target gift card (which we'll easily use on sundry purchases and Christmas), so it really was a great deal. So far I'm really, really happy with it. I am amazed at how much it's picking up (in a horrified yet very pleased way!). My only complaint is the hose and attachments are very cumbersome and take awhile to set up. Maybe that will get easier as I get used to it. In the meantime, the tradeoff is how much better our carpets look--even the old ones!

As an extra bonus, this vacuum is pink! It cost no extra--actually Dyson donates $40 to breast cancer research--and Sofie is just going nuts that there's a pink vacuum in the house. I think her life is now complete!

One of our neighbors passed away last year and her daughter-in-law stopped by to ask us if we'd like any of the stuff they intended to donate to Goodwill because they live on the East Coast and didn't want to ship everything there. She had a Dyson and I was delighted to get it. It does a great job on our floors.

The funny thing is that I didn't pay for my last vacuum either. When my former boss retired and moved from her house to a condo, she gave me her Rainbow! It is still in good working order but it is very cumbersome so the Dyson's a nice break.

My sister has one. She just vaccumed her house and just to tell you, it's just her and bil and one little yorkie. Not a lot of dirt in that house. Well when she got the Dyson, although just vaccumed, she had to try it. She filled the canister on it from just dirt that was pulled from below the carpet!! She swears by hers and I would love to get one myself.
