    Wow, apparently these are not as crap as they look on tv. I stand corrected.

    I still want to know wtf is 'digital' about an electric motor, or why it's rpm can possibly matter when you can just gear up to anything you want. Any time that kind of talk starts flying around my bs detector goes off and it's hard to waste time on the rest of it.

    wife wanted one last year. I was convinced that the only thing exceptional about it was the marketing. She wanted it because it was yellow.... So we got one, I used it, & holy b^t$hit , this thing works! We have a long-hair cat & I've never seen so much hair come out of the carpet. So on the positive side, it works great. On the negative, I'm not able to tell my wife "I told you so".

    Ironically, she wanted it because it was yellow but ended up getting the red one instead..

    Wife loves ours. Got her the cordless and she loves that too. $300 for a "dust buster" entitles me to buy pretty much anything I want for my shop... Win/Win

    I have thought that a Festool or similar quality level shop vac (or as they call it Dust Collector) could double as a house vac. The Festool vac has adjustable power/suction and is very quiet for a vacuum. You can get HEPA filters or
    standard filter bags. Standard vacuum acceessories and tools are available in both steel and plastic. For what you would pay for a Dyson that you would use occasionally you can buy a Festool and use it in the shop and the house, but you'd never use your Dyson in the shop connected to your router table or random orbit sander, it would be dead in 20 minutes I bet.

    The new central vac systems even have hose storage in the wall so you never have to drag the hose out of the closet, just grab whatever tool you need and the wand and you're off and running.

    I have a 2003 DC07 animal [the purple one].

    Around 2006 a small hose failed and I replaced it. The hose tore.
    After 7 years the hinge on the dust collector part broke. I replaced it.
    The other day I noticed some plastic broken on the cyclone assembly.
    I just ordered a replacement, even though it does not effect the operation what so ever.

    I find this "older" model has a larger capacity than the newer version dubbed as the "animal".

    Some comments here...

    Try to find affordable replacement parts for other 7+ year old vacuums?
    I had a Fantom and when it broke it was unserviceable! And if parts were offered they were not cost effective.

    The reason you now see even cheap cyclone style vacuums out there has to do with the patent...This is similar to the Fein Multimaster tool and all the knock-offs we have today.

    So..compare the Harbor Freight $29.99 Multimaster tool to the Fein Multimaster tool.....For some the twenty nine dollar tool will work fine.
    For others the Fein is the only way to go....

    I use our Dyson almost daily two large dogs and AZ is very dusty!
    The unit is powerful, reliable, does not loose suction etc....I sound like a commercial!

    I do one thing though most don't and that is every few weeks I take the cyclone assembly outside and blow out the fine dust with compressed air. The dust is like talcum powder and if left alone will eventually kill the vacuum. I also wash out the permanent filter every few months or so.

    You get what you pay for..and anything you get will fail or break if not properly used or maintained.

    Re: dyson vacuums

    about 30 years ago, I bought the pipe and out lets (similar to a nutone) sears central vacuum system, now I had a shop vac, and bought a 120 volt relay for the switch system and plugged in the shop vacuum to the relay and adapted the shop vacuum to the suction side of it, and put it in a closet,

    we have used it now for near 30 years, actually wore out one vacuum on it, and so I bought the best vacuum replacement head From Granger's, and made my own canister out of a 15 gallon or (100 pound grease drum) and used a abs pipe inside and dropped it to the bottom of the drum and put fingers on it about 2.5 inches (original tried slots) the slots were hard to clean and collected lint, and then add about 3" of water to the bottom of the drum, the now 20 year old vacuum is dust free, non clogging and makes it very easy to see what was vacuumed up and can be retrieved, easily, (the number of toys and small items we have retrieved is amazing),
    we do need to empty the container after each use (is the only draw back on the system), but I got the water filter Idea after a "Rainbow" vacuum sales many stopped by. and my folks at one time had a "Rexair" the Rexair was a good unit,

    we still use the central vacuum but less not that we have removed most carpets out of the house since we put in hard wood floors, and we enjoy the look and the clean of the hard wood greatly,

    many times for small spot clean up now my wife take My small 2 gallon shop vac, and uses that, for a $69 vac, it works well, (at this point I do not think I am getting the little shop vac back).

    my wife did wear out the power head and hose on the central vac a few times,
    my wife has allergies and she uses a vacuum a lot, especialy when we had carpets in the house,
