OK I think this is better than the Dyson, Not Kidding! I just got rid of a Dyson and it was my second one. I am not impressed with the Dyson at all. They cost a lot and this one to me was Cheap, but I decided to save some money and buy it over going with another Dyson. People may think I am crazy, but the way I clean "Daily" and I am OCD about cleaning too. This Vacuum picks up more dirt than my Dyson ever did. I recommend it to anyone who wants a deep down clean. Its heavy I will admit that, but other than heavy it is a great machine!!
