I bought one of these refurbished, and have had no problems with it. Its slim size is a huge plus; my apartment only has a small closet, which this wonderful vacuum fits nicely in. Like all Dysons, this one is a pleasure to use and easy to clean and maintain. I've used a DC24 before, which I liked as well; this streamlined version feels just as powerful and even more maneuverable.
The only small annoyance is that attachments fall off easily when clipped onto the side; I would recommend keeping them stored somewhere else. (To my knowledge, this is equally true of all Dysons.) And, of course, there's the power cord--plentifully long, but inevitably obtrusive. If Dyson could churn out a cordless, rechargeable version of this thing, they would have created the perfect vacuum cleaner.

Whatever you're doing right now, I was doing it before it was cool.
Delivering 200 air watts of suction power, Dyson's Slim upright vacuum cleaner features advanced Root Cyclone technology to ensure no loss of suction. Dyson proves no loss of suction using the IEC 60312 Cl 2.9 test standard. Designed for all floor types, the unit's motorized brushbar can be turned on to remove dirt and pet hair from carpets, or turned off to protect rugs and delicate floors. It also comes equipped with a quick-draw Telescope Reach, which extends instantly for stairs and high-reach cleaning. Thanks to the vacuum's money-saving, lifetime HEPA filter, air expelled from the unit contains up to 150 times less mold and bacteria than common breathing air. Thoughtfully designed, the unit's hygienic 4/9-gallon bin empties without ever having to touch the dust--simply push the button. Furthermore, Dyson upright vacuums are the first and only vacuums certified asthma friendly by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation. Other highlights include a 25-foot cord, a lightweight design at 15-4/5 pounds, and effortless steering for simple maneuverability and cleaning in tight spaces. The vacuum cleaner measures 16-1/3 by 12 by 43-2/3 inches and carries a five-year warranty.
