Had this vacuum for two years. The power head stopped working after 8 months. Dyson would not replace it so we ordered a new power head. This one lasted a few months and we have now gone through three. Not spending any more money and am very disappointed that Dyson has not stood behind their product. 500 dollars plus the hundreds for replacement parts in two years is not worth it. I tell everyone I see in the store who is looking at the Dyson to stay away. Don't waste your money.
