    5-0 out of 5 stars Great price, Great features
    After our old vaccum bit the dust, it was time to hunt for a new one. I spent 2 or 3 hours searching the web for the best-selling, highest-rated vac (hey, life's too short to make all the mistakes yourself - learn from others). The Eureka 4870DT was consistently ranked in the top 3 on everyone's list. So, I bought one.
    Installation took 1-2 minutes and required no tools (I've yet to read the instructions...). Once complete, I plugged it in, turned it on, and grinned, as the sound of the motor was simply ear candy...vvvmmmmm
    Now, the true test comes - under the dining room table (those of you with kids can imagine). However, before I get there I should mention 2 obvious cons: weight and the foot release lever.
    First, this vacuum weighs 21 lbs, which is ~ 4 - 7 lbs heavier than most vacuums in its class. Second, the foot release lever is a bit stiff at first, I've noticed it loosen up a little bit with more use (or perhaps I've just acclimated).

    After my initial mini-inspection, I was off to the grandstand court, under the dining room table. Click--clank--vmmmvmmm-click-click--vmmm-click-vvvvmmm-vvvmmm-vvvmm, all clean. The one obvious pro is that the suction is awesome! It does a great job on carpets, use the hose for corners.

    As my old vac didn't have a hepa filter, I wasn't used to the smell (it doesn't stink or anything; kind of reminds me of a hosptial or doctor's office smell)

    All-in-all I give it an 'A'.

    Oh, one more thing, although the vaccum comes with extra bags, you don't have to immediately use one as 1 bag comes pre-installed (guess I should read the instructions :-)).

    Best of luck to those vacuum shoppers!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great Value and Bang for your Buck
    I researched a lot among upright vacuums. This vacuum is great for the money that you pay, further it does its job very well. It comes with several attachments which are all held on to the main vacuum. Things like foot leaver, carpet/hard wood floor clip is slightly tight when new but it gets ok upon few uses, attachments don't fall off they have to be snapped-in correctly. Some reviews said that belt gives up fast; I have not faced it as yet. The roller moves very fast hence obliviously, one should take care it does not suck up shoe lace or any loose cloth. Also since roller moves so fast that at times if feel like a self propelled vacuum, which means it really brushes the carpet and yet is gentle. The hose could have been a bit longer hence I give a 4*, but then again for the price and its quality work was the best out there. Great I did not buy a Dyson!!!, can get 4 of these.

    4-0 out of 5 stars It's sucks, but in a good way!
    We've had it for about a month. We were tired of the bagless types you had to empty all the time. This works good, strong suction. Only thing is, it looks like a toy, with a lot of plastic.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Better than expected
    I bought this vacuum based largely on the customer reviews. I wanted one rated highly by Consumers (reviews indicated it was) and it needed to be affordable. Because of my pets and alergies creeping up on me, I wanted a Hepa filter as well. I received the vacuum and couldn't wait to try it and I was very happy with the results. The vacuum picked up everything (cat and dog hair too), fluffed the nap on this old carpet and actually made it look as if I had had it cleaned! I was happily surprised to find that some spots I was going to use a rug cleaner on because my old vacuum hadn't gotten them out were gone after using this Eureka Vac. My only negative comment is that it is heavier than I expected it to be; however, as previous reviewers commented, the brush action actually does help pull the vacuum forward as if it were self-propelled so that helps quite a bit. I would recommend this one to someone as a great vacuum at a great price.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great Vacuum!!!
    I bought one of these vacuums for our daughter at the end of last summer when their very old vacuum quit. I did a review of the consumer magazines at the time and this one seemed at the top of the heap.

    Meanwhile I've been using our older Eureka vacuum new enough to be the plastic type (6 or 8 years old?) and getting results far from good and needed multiple passes in some areas to get the carpets clean.

    Every time I see our daughter she thanks me again for the vacuum and raves about it and how their friends ask if they got new carpets. It is that good!

    Amazon had an even better deal than last summer and I finally decided to get one before they are discontinued and the price of the replacement for it goes up. Free shipping was estimated at a week or more but I got it IN 3 DAYS! It's hard to beat that though it's likely a result of being in California only a couple of hundred miles from the area of Nevada from where it was shipped.

    I've cleaned a couple of carpets with it and the kitchen vinyl floor.

    POSITIVES:
    * It seems to really get the carpets clean, both relative plush one and a dense low pile one and the vinyl floor is free of the dirt and kitchen droppings. ISN'T THAT WHAT IT'S ALL ABOUT???
    * It seems to have as much or better suction using the hose and attachments as most canister vacuums that I've ever used. Far superior to any other upright I've ever used.
    * It has a cord that is quite a bit longer than the one in the older Eureka that it is replacing. A great help in the long family room we have.
    * The tools are securely held in place, unlike some vacuums that I've used where they keep falling off as you use the vacuum.
    * The brush stops rotating when you return the handle to the vertical position. No more areas of the carpet that get a bunch of rubbing on them when you use the suction hose and attachments.
    * The HEPA filtering is a real nice feature. I'll investigate getting washable replacement filters (see another review here for info) for this vacuum and our daughter's.

    NEGATIVES:
    * As I recall was mentioned more than once in these Amazon reviews when I read them last summer, it IS much harder to PULL than any other vacuum I've used. My wife would complain but since I do most of the vacuuming it's not a problem and it's a result of the superior cleaning that it does so you can't have everything.
    * The switches are hard to push and latch and the brush roll control in particular had to be pushed much harder than I'd usually push a handle made from plastic. The handle lock foot switch likewise is hard to press and wasn't easy to activate to lower the handle to the floor to clean under low furniture. Now that I know how hard things need to be pressed it'll be easier to work it and maybe things will get looser as they are used but my wife would have problems with this.
    * The upholstery brush doesn't easily go into the place for it and the only way I could get it to stay in was to push VERY HARD on one edge of it and only have it held in by that one edge. The manual doesn't give details on exactly how it mounts and again my wife would never get it held in were she to use it.
    * The unpacking, even when I was particularly careful spread small pellets of styrofoam everywhere -- a great chance to try out the vacuum -- and the styrofoam BB sized pieces stick to the plastic and hose of the vacuum when you take it out of the box. Don't forget to vacuum off the vacuum itself before you spread them even further. It would have been nice if it had been in a large paper sack so I could have removed it without all the styrofoam stuck to it by the electrostatic charge and I could recycled the sack.

    BOTTOM LINE:
    It's not perfect but in the real world few things are when cost and features have to be traded off.

    *** I don't think you can go wrong with this vacuum.***

    I'm hoping that after a few weeks of use I'll still be as enthusiastic about it as my daughter is. ... Read more

    Amazon.com Review

    Designed by engineering guru James Dyson, inventor of the cyclonic vacuum, the 12-amp Dyson DC07 upright is an inspired combination of power and structural smarts. At the center of the machine's innovation is the Cyclone air path design, an eight-section chamber that creates powerful, consistent suction. The conical chambers generate 100,000 g of centrifugal force, pushing dust and dirt out of the airflow into the vacuum's 1-gallon collection cup. With no bag to clog, the vacuum's 270 air watts of suction remain steady. The large, transparent collection cup is easy to check and empties tidily--pop it off, hold it over a trash bin, and pull the trigger to release dirt without having to touch it. The DC07 also comes equipped with a multipart filtration system to improve overall air quality in the home. The HEPA filter, measuring 412 square inches in surface area, traps microscopic particulates and allergens. Expertly built, the filter is designed to last the lifetime of the machine.

    Suitable for bare floors and carpets, the Dyson upright features a 14-inch cleaning path and edge-cleaning bristles. A simple foot pedal switches off the brush roll for bare floors, and the nozzle automatically adjusts for changes in carpet height. The vacuum is equipped for above-floor cleaning with a cleverly stowed, quick-release 17-foot hose with a reversible, extension-wand handle. Onboard accessories include a crevice tool, a dusting brush, and an upholstery attachment, all designed to function without "sticking" to surfaces. Made from the same material used in crash helmets, the vacuum is unquestionably durable. Plus, the design only puts 4 pounds of weight on the handle, so pushing and turning is easy. This model comes with a 35-foot power cord.--Emily Bedard

    Editor's note: This is a reconditioned vacuum. Reconditioned generally means that the vacuum has been returned to the manufacturer, who brings the vacuum back to like-new condition.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best vacuum I have ever owned
    My reconditioned vacuum came in excellent condition. I have 2 Border Collies, a black Lab and 3 cats - as well as a husband who doesn't wipe his feet very well before he comes in the house - so I have alot of dust and pet hair.
    The Dyson arrived quickly - was easy to assemble - all the parts fit well - and cleaned the whole house "barefoot" clean. It rolls very easily, transitions well between carpet and hardwood (you do have to manually turn off the beater, but I don't think that is a problem). My other vacuums (a Hoover and an Oreck) would blow around the pet hair instead of picking it up but the suction on the Dyson was strong enough not to have that problem.

    5-0 out of 5 stars WOW !!!!!
    I was very apprehensive of buying a reconditioned vacuum. I figured it would arrive all scratched up and nasty. Well, mine looks brand new. Not a scratch to be found. Cannister was squeeky clean, filter had zero dirt.

    I would be thrilled with this vacuum even if it were scratched and dinged. We vacuumed the livingroom floor as soon as it arrived and could not believe how much stuff it pulled out of the rug. We have 14 month old twins crawling around so my wife vacuums everyday with the old oreck. I have never been happy with the oreck and I could justify my displeasure after the first time we vacuumed with this Dyson.

    $250 may seem like a lot of money for a reconditioned vacuum. All I can say is: if you buy it, you wont regret it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Refurbished Dyson rocks!
    Great vacuum. It worked as new even though I got the refurbished version.

    The other Central Florida person that got the refurb,returned it, got new gives up too easily. I got mine for $225. Even at $250+ it is a great deal! It is amazing all the dust you pickup with this thing.

    No complaints whatsoever.

    5-0 out of 5 stars the best vacuum I ever had
    like most of the other people that reviewed dyson - I found it to be by far the best vacuum I have ever had - much better than any hoover etc.
    It is quite powerfull and I was impressed first time I used it with how much dirt it collected from what I thought was a very clean carpet.
    I would definitely recomand it to anyone. I don't think I will ever buy any other brand again.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Very disappointed with refurbished DYSON
    After weeks and weeks of research and consideration of the refurbished Dyson, I ordered it. All previous messages stated it was like new. Well, upon receiving the Dyson, overall the appearance of the vac was in like new condition with only one issue; the hose had a smash in it. No biggie right? Since the hose is just made of wire, all I had to do was pinch the wire into place and the hose was fine. Then I started it up. The seals were not sealing and I was getting an awefule whistling sound. I went to my local retailer to see if theirs did the same and nope, it didn't. I also noticed that the suction of my refurbished Dyson was also a little less than the new one. Long story short, if you didn't get in on the $225 deal, I wouldn't recommend it. These vacs are high tech. and a lot can go wrong with them. I figured Dyson would take pride in their refurbished vac, but I was not impressed what-so-ever. Needless to say, I returned my vac and purchased a new one.

    I totally recommend Dyson's new vacs. It picked up so much dirt from my house I was really impressed. And I must mention that my wife vacuumes every two weeks. Once the Dyson came to our house, it picked up three canisters of dirt and dust the first day. The house is 2800 sq. ft. VERY impressive vacuum.

    With a newborn on the way, I have a huge confidence that the house is in clean shape for the todler to crawl around on.

    5-0 out of 5 stars I LOVE IT, I LOVE IT, I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I will never be without my Roomba again. Never. I have 5 dogs and 2 cats and assorted children and grandchildren. I need to vacuum more than once a day - three times is good. I run my roomba in the morning while I surf the net and in the evening while I watch TV with my husband. I know I should run it in the afternoon as well, but hey, it's gotta rest sometime.

    This little gem is worth every penny and I picked up this model in a local Target since it's not available on the web yet.

    I have mostly hardwood and tile floors but do have area rugs in a couple of rooms. This thing just hops onto the rugs and back off again though it sometimes lifts the edges of the rugs and sweeps it's little edge gizmo under the rug before hopping back on it. It gets every nook and cranny and I don't have to do the edges at all - they are perfect. Even my Scrubby Dutch grandmother would approve.

    We love the "dirt alert" light. It's a stitch to sit and watch the thing go. My kids even want to run the vacuum - how many 10 year olds do you know who want to vacuum?????

    It's entertaining to watch, does the job and keeps my floors very clean indeed. It goes everywhere, picks up so much that the first time I ran it I had to empty the little dust bin once before it was even done. That's not needed anymore though as it just keeps things clean, very clean.

    The virtual walls work as they are supposed to, the animals don't bother it and it's quiet. The only thing I'd do is buy another one for the other half of the house. I can do three rooms but even with the rapid charger, it's hard to do the whole house twice a day, every day.

    I can't think of a single negative thing. It comes with the rapid charger, two virtual walls and a charging base as well as the wall mount unit.

    Now, where do I find those robotic lawnmowers???????

    4-0 out of 5 stars Reason for embroidery arm positioning
    A previous reviewer left a comment that the hoop is on the wrong side. There is a valid reason for this. Unlike her PE-150, this machine is also a sewing machine. In order for this machine to function as a sewing machine, the embroidery arm has to be removable (so it is on the left side). If it was on the other side, it would be in the way for sewing.

    The other major advantage of the PE-400D over the 150 (besides being able to sew), is that it is able to read and use the Disney Brother cards. These cards can only be used by Disney Brother machines.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Arm is backwards
    I don't care for the design of the hoop holder... all the work must go to the inside of the machine and b in that small small area... not able to do it... I like the position with the brother P-150. I have that machine and wanted to upgrade to another model... But will not buy any machine that has the hoop holder on the outside... unless someone can give me a viable explanation...then I may reconsider... Thank you for allowing me to voice my thots. ...

    Amazon.com Review

    Using hot tap water and cleaning solution, the 12-amp Hoover SteamVac V2 deep cleans carpet fibers, tough stains, and upholstery. It is also suitable for tile, ceramic, marble, and linoleum floors (though not appropriate for hardwoods). Named for itsdual-nozzle construction, the cleaner provides efficient water removal and thorough edge-to-edge cleaning. The nozzle design forces hot air into the cleaning path and automatically rinses carpet clean on the backward pull. The SpinScrub brushes agitate ground-in dirt and can be turned off with a simple switch. Using a two-tank design that holds up to a gallon of water at a time, the cleaner automatically blends the cleaning solution, so you do not have to monitor it. Both tanks feature an enclosed design and convenient handles, making them easy to remove and transport. The recovery tank automatically shuts off suction when full and comes with a built-in lint screen. A removable view window on the nozzle lets you see dirty water returning to the machine.

    For above-floor tasks, the cleaner comes with an 8-foot hose, a stair/upholstery tool, and a SpinScrub hand tool with rotating brushes. Conversion to tool cleaning is manual but quick, and you can remove the hose and tool caddy altogether for more streamlined use. The cleaner comes with a carrying handle, a 27-foot cord, quick-release cord hooks, and a foot pedal to release the handle. Fingertip switches and a trigger control the rinsing, washing, and Clean Surge functions. The removable brushes and a beltless design simplify maintenance.

    4-0 out of 5 stars MUCH better than expected
    I have to say, I am pleasantly surprised with this machine. My wife and I have been researching deep cleaning machines for a while, and we have gone back and forth on a few different models. We have 2 very crazy dogs, both under a year old, and we have a very wet backyard. So, with spring (mud season) coming, we finally decided to stop comparing and just purchase something. We went to Home Depot, bought the cleaner for a whopping 300 bucks, and I must admit, being a pessimist, I was fully expecting the product to work just "okay". After some very easy assembly and reading of directions, we were ready to go. We started in our family room, which has a deep blue small pile carpet, and was just vaccumed about 2 hours before. There were 2 stains from dogs urinating on the carpet, where the previous cleaning attempts didn't work too well. We followed the directions to the letter, and about 15 minutes later the entire room (15x24) was completely clean. The carpet was back to it's original deep blue, the week-old urine stains were totally gone, and the water in the waste chanber was utterly disgusting (almost black). I was totally surprised that it cleaned as deeply as it did. The carpet was a little wet, but with a few extra passes, it got dry enough to walk on. About 4 hours later, it was completely dry to the touch. After the family room, we went to our bedroom, which has a very plush, thick pile khaki-colored carpet. It had multiple doggy vomit stains as well as one very nasty doggy diarrhea stain that just would not come out. Neither myself or my wife figured it would work all that well, but we gave it a shot. The 5 vomit stains, some about 4 weeks old and repeatedly worked over with a sponge, came out in 7-10 slow passes. The diarrhea stain came out after about 15-20 slow passes. Now, this used a ton of water, but all the stains came out completely. I was shocked. This product really works, if you give it time for deep stains. We have paid $150 for Stanley Steemer to do our carpets a few times, and I have to admit, I think the Hoover did a better job. We have only had it for a few weeks, but we have been totally satisfied. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 for two reasons. The first is that you have to change the clean water, dirty water, and detergent tanks alot. When we were cleaning the family room, I think we had to change both the clean water and dirty water tanks 3 times, for a 15x24 room. The detergent tank (16 oz.) was empty at the end of cleaning the room. The second reason is that the Hoover does no better than a $5 mop for hard floors. We have both tile and hardwood floors, and we tried it on both. I was very unimpressed. DO NOT buy this product if want to clean your hard floors. ABSOLUTELY BUY THIS PRODUCT if you want extremely clean carpets, and total ease of use. It is fantastic.

    5-0 out of 5 stars I love this machine!!
    Let's say carpet cleaning is NO my big thrill in life. I purchases a similar Eureka model. It was a bit more than the Eureka, but well worth every penny. I has a separate load for the soap, you fill with your own warm water in a nice large tank so you don't have to stop every 5 minutes and load. This permits you not only to clean the carpet, but rinse it so you don't have soap residue. It has a large easy to remove collection tank, easy to dump. It picked up three times the moisture from the carpet than the Eureka. When I cleaned with Eureka it took days for the carpet to be dry. With the Hoover the next day it was completely dry.

    It was easy to push. I could clean a room in a matter of a few minutes. It promises deep cleans and it delivers. So forget about renting those back-breaking cleans that are cumbersome to use. Forget wasting money on ones that don't clean good or remove water from the carpet. Spend a little more and get the RIGHT STUFF!

    5-0 out of 5 stars If it doesn't work right, it's you!
    Read reviews b4 buying my Hoover SteamVac V2 and was hesitant because several owners reported it was garbage or prone to breakdowns. Researched all brands thoroughly and decided on this one. It is awesome. It took two minutes to prepare it for cleaning. Changes water very easily, and takes two minutes to clean it after use. No dripping hoses, no nozzles, connectors, or little parts that require dissasembling b4 putting it away. It was as easy as vacuuming and very effective. I had an old Bissell and seldom used it 'cause it was too cumbersome to put together and handle. As I get older I wanted something that was easy to get out and use, didn't require alot of physical strength or agility, AND THIS IS IT. I'll never have dirty carpets again!!

    1-0 out of 5 stars 2nd time using -- just threw it in the trash
    I have never been happier to throw something away than this piece of garbage. Unfortunately, I cannot return it since, assuming it was a quality product, I threw out the packaging and receipts after assembling and briefly testing it. It is a hassle to use (it will take you 10 times longer to clean than you can possibly imagine), does a pathetic job cleaning, and it leaks like crazy out of both the clean water reservoir and the dirty water reservoir. It goes through the VERY expensive soap so fast that it is an act of sheer stupidity to buy this thing instead of hiring professional cleaners (not to mention that many professionals now use non-soap cleaners that don't leave the caked-on-residue feeling on the carpet that this machine does). Plus, you have to apply protectant AFTER cleaning. NUTS! Don't bother with Bissell either, or any other manufacturer. I bought a Bissell canister model several years ago, and it was too much hassle to use. These machines are all clunky, slow, and do a very poor job. Professionals do a better job, are much faster, and are probably cheaper than buying huge volumes of soap.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Prone to breakdowns
    While the machine is effective at vacuuming, the machine has been a dud. I've used the machine four times and its already broken down two times. Once the spin brushes jammed and more recently, the top water tank seal broke. These problems seem common based on other reviews. I would avoid this product until Hoover fixes these issues. ...

    Amazon.com Review

    Early Adopters Pick: October 2002. The world’s only true cyclonic vacuum, generating 100,000 g of centrifugal force and pulling dirt into an indestructible canister made from the same material used for crash helmets.

    Named for both its power and its ruthless approach to pet hair problems, the Dyson DC07 Animal upright is a piece of engineering wizardry designed by James Dyson, the inventor of cyclonic vacuums. A hit in Europe for years, Dyson vacuums are new to the American market. At the center of the machine's innovation is the Cyclone air path design, an eight-section chamber that creates powerful, consistent suction. The conical chambers generate 100,000 g of centrifugal force, pushing dust and dirt out of the airflow into the vacuum's 1-gallon collection cup. With no bag to clog, the vacuum's 270 air watts of suction remain steady. The large, transparent collection cup is easy to check and empties tidily--pop it off, hold it over a trash bin, and pull the trigger to release dirt without having to touch it. The DC07 also comes equipped with a multipart filtration system to improve overall air quality in the home. The HEPA filter, measuring 412 square inches in surface area, traps microscopic particulates and allergens. Expertly built, the filter is designed to last the lifetime of the machine.

    Suitable for bare floors and carpets, the Dyson upright features a 14-inch cleaning path and edge-cleaning bristles. A foot pedal switches off the brush roll for bare floors, and the nozzle automatically adjusts for various carpet heights. For above-floor cleaning, the vacuum also comes with a cleverly stowed, 17-foot quick-release hose with a reversible extension-wand handle. Onboard accessories include a crevice tool, a dusting brush, an upholstery attachment, and the Animal turbo tool. Designed for lint and stubborn pet hair, the turbo tool features an air-powered brush bar to extract hair from furniture, stairs, pet beds, cars, and other tight spaces.

    Made from the same material used in crash helmets, the vacuum is unquestionably durable. Plus, the design only puts 4 pounds of weight on the handle, so pushing and turning is easy. This model comes with a 35-foot power cord and a limited two-year household warranty. It also includes a carpet care kit--a canister of Groom Zorb odor-absorbent carpet cleaning powder and a bottle of Dyzolv spray for spills and stains. --Emily Bedard ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars An outstanding Vacuum Cleaner!
    Let me begin by saying that I have three dogs and two cats. Pet hair is the biggest cleaning challenge in our house.

    After convincing my wife to discontinue our professional cleaning service, due to increasing costs, I volunteered to take the cleaning duties related to the floors and the furniture. My wife foolishly took on the kitchen, bathrooms, and dusting. What my wife didn't know was that I had been reading up on the Dyson "Animal".

    The "Animal" arrived just two days after our last professional cleaning. I immediately vacuumed the entire house and was absolutely amazed at how much pet hair and dirt I pulled out of the carpets and off our hardwood floors. Our house has never been so absent of pet hair. Even my pets were beside themselves. My wife was thoroughly impressed. She said that the house looked and smelled cleaner than ever!

    The "Animal" is a total cleaning machine. It easily attacked hardwood floors, carpets, curtains, furniture, and stairs. It's the best cleaning machine I have ever used. Adding a sixth animal to our family was the best thing I ever did!

    If you have pets and need a high powered cleaning machine, get the "Animal"! It's worth the money! I donated my old cleaning machines to our YMCA.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The purple monster lives up to it's name! "The Animal"
    I first heard about Dyson from a airline magazine during a recent business trip. The article was very interesting. A few days later, my wife indicated that we needed a new vacuum and I started telling her about the Dyson.

    At first, the price seems high, relative to other cleaners. We also have two yellow labs that shed through out the year. It was down to the dogs or me. Dog hair on the rugs, hair on the furniture, hair everywhere. The cleaner arrived in 13 days after it was ordered. It took about ten minutes to put the Animal together. My daughter and I followed the directions.

    We first tried the vacuum in the upright position in our living room, which had been vacuumed about four days earlier. The machine picked up so much dog hair and dust that it filled up the canister about half way. We both were very surprised. We then tried the hair attachment on the furniture. It took some effort but the dog hair was removed. Our next challenge was the steps going up stairs. The wand attachment worked as advertised. We got to the top, while the Animal stayed at the landing. The design of the hose attachment is very clever. We have not tried the ZORB cleaner or the spot remover at this point. These items come with Purple Animal.

    The furniture attachment and the hard surface attachment are loose items and do not attach directly to the animal when not in use. The 3 smaller attachments attach directly to the Animal.

    This device is very well designed. The construction is very good. The appearance is a bit different but you get use to it quickly. The animal is easy to use, and very easy to clean. There are no bags and no mess to deal with.

    Overall, this is a very good machine and the best vacuum that we have ever owned. Yes, it was worth the cost. And yes, the dogs can stay.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Finally, a vacuum that can handle MY life!
    With four kids, a yellow lab, and a backyard that was recently torn up, the dirt in my house was driving me crazy! I had always bought Hoover Wind Tunnels. When our last one started gasping for life after about a year and a half, I thought that maybe I should consider a commercial vacuum. I started researching vacuums and kept coming up with Dyson.

    Five hundred bucks for a vacuum might seem a bit ridiculous, but I've spend over three hundred on various Hoovers that have lasted only two years or so (I have to vacuum daily!), I figured if I get four years out of this, I'll come out ahead.

    Basically, I can't tell you anything that you haven't read already concerning this vacuum, only that the reviewers who said it didn't have suction should try plugging it in next time!

    It's easy to handle, sucks dirt other vacuums happily leave behind, is truly gratitifying to dump (you'll see), and works as well on hardwood floors as it does on area rugs. The cord and hose are far reaching and it is very stable when using the attachments or doing the stairs. The only negative thing that I can say about this vacuum is that taking the attachment piece out of the hose is kind of a pain. I used to use the attachments as I needed them. Now I use them last so I don't need to keep putting the wand back into the hose over and over.

    One review mentioned that the Dyson eats the fringe off of area rugs. This is not a problem if you switch to the hard floors settings before trying to vacuum the fringe. One thing I didn't like about my old Hoover is that the beater brush didn't stop when you used the attachments. I put a hole in my floor when I caused my Hoover to tilt while using the attachments because the friction beater brush wore a hole through the floor. The Dyson's brush stops, so there's no danger of this.

    I also like the fact I'm not going to be nickeled and dimed on bags and filters. As an allergy sufferer, I'm glad that the filter is easy to wash and reuse as often as needed. When I see what the Dyson picks up on a daily basis, I can't help but think that I've staved off at least one allergy attack in our household every time I use it.

    If you're in the market for a vacuum, earmark some of your tax refund, or just decide to spurge, and get the Dyson. I did, and I don't have any regrets, just really clean floors.

    5-0 out of 5 stars It just sucks in the BEST WAY!!!
    I purchased my Dyson last Saturday, and I have yet to put the thing away. It's just the best. Easy to put together, easy to use, and it has suction like there is no tomorrow. My condo has hardwood floors, area rugs, and two cats. The floors and rugs have never been so clean. The first time I used it, I got enough cat hair out of the rugs for a new cat! I've also noticed that there has been much less sniffling and sneazing from my husband, who is allergic to dust mites. This baby is worth every penny, and I'm extremely pleased with my purchase.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best Vacuum out there!
    I bought this vacuum today after a friend told me about it. We have a dog that sheds like crazy and my son is 7 months old and crawling. Needless to say, I needed something that would get rid of the hair! We have hardwood floors throughout our entire house and this vacuum picked up everything! It was so much easier than sweeping the floors with a broom and so much more was picked up! I would recommend this vacuum to anybody that has pets of any sort that shed. It's well worth the money! ... Read more

    when i first saw this machine i thought it to be the best in its price range. it offered lots of features like the four step button hole , 52 stitich functions etc. the day i brought home my first new machine , the bobbin case was loose and so the machine wasn't working. i returned it and exchanged it for another one and this time the stitch selector function wasn't working..i was really dissappointed with both the experiences.i do not recommend buying this machine without first checking if all the functions are working..i think it would be best to buy refurbished ones as they are repaired and factory tested and seem to be doing well. i bought my machine from walmart and they exchanged it without any fuss and i was glad i bought it there.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Mid-Range Sewing Machine
    The Singer 5050 provides an excellent mid-range sewing machine at a low-end price.

    Although not automatically threading like many top-of-the-line machines, the 5050 is incredibly easy to thread--moreso than even the underpowered little handheld stitchers advertised on TV. The thread tension and stitch widths are easily adjustable, providing for accurate, strong seams that don't snag or snap the thread during sewing.

    The 5050 includes 50 different stitch functions (made from 32 stitches), can do 4-step buttonholes with ease, and can be used to do darning, embroidery, and all manner of decorative stitches.

    Accessories included are a second pattern module (for an alternate 25 stitch functions), zipper, button, blindstitch, and special-purpose presser feet, an assortment of needles, a friction-free plate for embroidery, and spare bobbins. The feet simply snap on and off for quick changes.

    The machine also can do free-arm sewing for easy cuff and hem finishes, is controlled electronically via a foot switch for excellent speed control, and is all-around one of the most excellent machines in its price range. ... Read more

    Equipped with a UV germicidal light to help kill airborne microorganisms and a three-speed fan to continuously circulate air through two filters, this portable air purifier removes smoke, pollen, dust, animal dander, dust mites, molds, bacteria, viruses, and odors. Helpful for asthmatics, allergy sufferers, and cold/flu patients, the purifier contains a true HEPA filter that is at least 99.97 percent effective at trapping tiny particles; a prefilter reduces odors. A digital readout displays air quality (good, fair, or poor), and the fan can be set to automatically adjust speed according to air-quality needs. Digital indicators show when filters need replacing.

Filter replacement is simple: open front, remove prefilter and/or HEPA filter, position new filter(s), and close. The purifier carries a three-year warranty against defects. --Fred Brack ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Quiter than Blueair
    I have severe asthma and have been VERY pleased with the 04163 Hamilton Beach Air Purifier. I'm not sure what planet the negative reveiwers are from but I investigated all the options regardless of price. I went by Sears and looked at the Kenmore. The reviewer who liked it must work for Sears because it isn't even in the same ballpark as the Hamilton Beach. I briefly bought and returned a BlueAir which cost twice as much and is supposed to be the quietest. Instead it has an irritating high pitched whine that oscillates and would be better utilized as a torture device. The Hamilton Beach, on the other hand, is not only quiet, but the white noise it makes is actually soporific. I prefer to sleep with it on and it runs 24/7. I use to have a constant problem with mold in my master bathroom, but the Ultraviolet light on the Hamilton Beach has kept it from returning. The other day I chased my golden retriever into the bedroom with ear cleaner and to my surprise the automatic fan smelled it, and dealt with it, turning the fan on automatically to a higher setting briefly. I couldn't even smell it myself. To describe it's air cleaing capability, I will just end by saying this, the reason I am on this site is I am getting ready to buy a second Hamilton Beach for my office.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Pretty Good, For Its Price and Intended Purpose
    Haven't had it for very long, just a couple of months, but I like it. I had a Honeywell room unit that was okay, but I had no idea how well it was working. With the HB, the air sensor gives you some idea of how well it's working. When first hooked up, the HB showed that the Honeywell was doing a good job of cleaning. At first, I thought maybe I should have just stayed with the Honeywell. I had initially stayed away from using the UV light, after reading that it didn't do anything. Wrong. When I finally switched on the UV light, a lot of my nighttime nasal congestion disappeared. That feature, plus the sensor, makes this model a 4- rather than 3-star product. (Keep in mind tthat this is a one-room unit and not intended for people with severe allergies.)

    Seems to have a small but noticeable effect on keeping dust down.

    Whisper Quiet ... isn't. But it's no louder than the Honeywell. I also selected Super Saver shipping, saved some money, and got it in five business days. If this unit lasts another year without problems, I'll buy another for another room in my house.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Works great but noisy
    I have been using this product for a year now with great results. It really does seem to clean the air and has improved my allergies. The filters are extremely easy to replace when necessary. My only complaint is that it is noisy, too noisy for me to use when I am sleeping.

    My room used to be very dusty but since I purchased this product, the room is much cleaner.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Very Impressed
    It has been 3 months since I received the air purifier, one word, WOW.

    For over 3 years, I have suffered from postnasal drip and congestion every morning due to minor dust allergies. I have noticed this has progressively gotten worse over this period. In an effort to remedy this situation, I was more diligent in dusting and cleaning my apartment and I visited my doctor a few times over the past few years. I was prescribed allergy pills and steroids in an effort to cure me, nothing worked.

    I finally decided to buy an air purifier as general means of breathing cleaner air. I selected this one based on the reviews and comments others reported and was not disappointed. Literally, the first night I used the purifier, it cured my postnasal drip problem. The morning after, my nasal passage was clear and dry. I could breathe!!! Now every night before bed, I turn on my purifier and every morning now, I wake up clear and congestion free. I have even noticed when I am away from my purifier/apartment, the congestion returns.

    Now to review the product itself... I must say the gadget-lover in me, opted for the UV light and digital readout of this particular model. Honestly, I probably could have done without the UV light and digital readout. There have been nights where I forgot to turn on the UV light and still woke up fine, perhaps it may be more effective in the winter when there are more germs flying around. The only semi-annoying thing is the device does not remember the UV setting when you turn it off. With the digital readout, I think I could have done without it. As I said, I love gadgets and features like this. However, it does work though. For example, when I open my window, it quickly determines the air is much dirtier and reacts accordingly. How smart!!!

    People have noted that the purifier is very noisy. I think this is a purely subjective matter. I live in NYC on a ninth floor apartment off the East River on the FDR Drive. I am accustom to a certain amount of noise. I am subject to varying levels of car and wind noise 24/7. Concerning the purifier, I typically run it at low speed each night (I only run it at night). It is positioned at the foot of my bed. IMHO, using the lowest speed is no noisier than running an air conditioner at low speed. After a couple nights, it became white noise and is hardly noticeable to me now.

    As far as size goes, I was a bit surprised how large it is but considering the size of the HEPA filter. It is not that bad in comparison. I am sure the larger size helps in better coverage of a large sized room.

    The only negative I could come up with is the price (I paid about $140) but, given my success with the purifier, I cannot really claim this as a real fault. After 3 months, I am still on the original HEPA filter. The carbon filter I actually rinsed off the dust with some running water a couple times. It is a bit of a messy process but seems effective. I recently ran the built-in test on the filters and it passed. The replacement HEPA filter is a bit pricey; I think it should cost a lot less. They run about $40 to $50 each while the replacement carbon filters run three for $10.

    Overall, I am very, very, very happy with my purchase. The money I paid was worth it. I can breathe!!! However, if can settle for the smaller size and/or without the digital readout, just get a lower-end model which sells for much less. The most important feature is the HEPA filter. ... Read more

    Designed by engineering guru James Dyson, inventor of the cyclonicvacuum, the 12-amp Dyson DC07 upright is an inspired combination of power andstructural smarts. At the center of the machine's innovation is the Cyclone air pathdesign, an eight-section chamber that creates powerful, consistent suction. The conicalchambers generate 100,000 g of centrifugal force, pushing dust and dirt out of the airflowinto the vacuum's 1-gallon collection cup. With no bag to clog, the vacuum's 270 airwatts of suction remain steady. The large, transparent collection cup is easy to check andempties tidily--pop it off, hold it over a trash bin, and pull the trigger to release dirtwithout having to touch it. The DC07 also comes equipped with a multipart filtrationsystem to improve overall air quality in the home. The HEPA filter, measuring 412square inches in surface area, traps microscopic particulates and allergens. Expertly built, the filter is designedto last the lifetime of the machine.

    Suitable for bare floors and carpets, the Dyson upright features a 14-inch cleaning pathand edge-cleaning bristles. A simple foot pedal switches off the brush roll for bare floors,and the nozzle automatically adjusts for changes in carpet height. The vacuum isequipped for above-floor cleaning with a cleverly stowed, quick-release 17-foot hosewith a reversible, extension-wand handle. Onboard accessories include a crevice tool, adusting brush, and an upholstery attachment, all designed to function without "sticking"to surfaces. Made from the same material used in crash helmets, the vacuum isunquestionably durable. Plus, the design only puts 4 pounds of weight on the handle, sopushing and turning is easy. This model comes with a 35-foot power cord and a limitedtwo-year household warranty. --Emily Bedard ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars This vacuum is amazing!
    After several disappointing experiences with Hoover, I logged onto Amazon.com to check out what everyone else was saying about vacuum cleaners. Again and again, Dyson looked like my best choice, but I had a hard time rationalizing spending $400 on a vacuum.

    I bit the bullet and bought the Dyson, and I'm so glad I spent the money! I vacuumed our living room and baby's room, and I was shocked and disgusted at the amount of crud, pet hair and dirt hiding in our carpet! I thought I kept a somewhat clean house!

    Getting the hose attachment ready for use takes a little practice, but it works wonders! I won't go into what the Dyson sucked up along my baseboards, but they've never looked so good.

    Please...buy this vacuum! You won't regret it, and you can say goodbye to "add-ons;" no bags or filters to buy! I enjoy vacuuming again, because I can actually see the good it's doing by how much dirt gets into the canister!

    Thank you, Dyson!

    3-0 out of 5 stars Are the other reviewers Dyson employees?
    I bought this item after reading the ridiculously overinflated reviews on this site and on the epinions site. I think these people must have been hired to write these reviews-- some of them even sound similar to each other. What I've found, after a few days of using this item, is:
    PROS: On carpet only, absolutely great suction, better than any vacuum cleaner I've ever owned. Very easy dirt disposal-- you just detach the canister and hold it over a trash can. It is quieter than you'd think, considering the suction. Also a big plus is that you supposedly don't ever have to clean the filter. The Dyson sucked up a lot more into the clear canister than my other canister vacuum, which was really surprising, since when you take it out of the box it is a flimsy plastic piece of crap. Which brings me to the cons:
    CONS: crummy plastic construction, a cord that DOESN'T RETRACT, inconvenient hose extension, vacuum has to be right OVER the dirt to suck it up from bare floor, expensive, etc. etc. In short, if suction of large pieces is your main concern (as it is mine, since i have large pieces of hay and litter from my pets) then this is your vacuum. I certainly didn't find, as I read in all the reviews here, that the suction is so great that it's difficult to use this vacuum on area rugs. I like this and will keep it, but it's not a very good value, in my opinion. It's just the only vacuum I've found that will take up all the hay and junk-- and I haven't used it long enough to know if it will last. Also I like the fact that you don't have to clean the filter.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Don't Buy This Vacuum!
    This is one of the worst vacuum cleaners I have ever used. Don't believe the hype! It is very painful to use. It is difficult to go from a hard floor to carpet or from the carpet to the rug as it automatically adjusts, whereas most vacuums you can just tilt back and it does the work for you. With this vac, you have to pick it up! People with bad backs beware! You also have to unwrap the entire long, long cord to use ANY of the nozzles. I have owned this vacuum less than a year and am very dissatisfied with this purchase. In addition to the design problems it is falling apart and, unlike Mr Dyson says, has lost its suction. I used to love to vacuum but this vacuum has driven me to dread it. Please don't waste your hundreds of dollars on this machine.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic!!!!!
    This is the "Best" vacuum I have ever bought, & I've owned a few. I had just vacuumed that morning. I used my new Dyson that night & sucked-up quite a bit in the canister. I guess my Dirt Devil's not cutting it! This vacuum is a nice solid weight & not nearly as loud as other's. The carpet looks like it was just cleaned! I know my home is cleaner now & I believe the Dyson will be worth every penny I paid!

    5-0 out of 5 stars OH MY GOSH...THIS SO ROCKS!
    I LOVE THIS VACUME! I never thought I would say that about a vacume but hey, never say never! This is so wonderful! It cleans- I mean REALLY cleans the floor! It self adjusts, and is easy to empty! It is very lightweight and it is so convient and well made! I have a 1 year old and this vacume gets used alot and I actually enjoy vacumming!!! SO WORTH THE MONEY!!! Get it and don't waste money on another machine! 5 BIG GOLD STARS!!! ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars If you have Asian Tiger Mosquitos
    Don't use the Octenol cartridge for Asian Tiger Mosquitos because it repels rather than attracts them. Read and follow the placement directions.

    After getting 6-15 bites by those nasty critters everytime I went into the garden and being held prisoner indoors for a few months, I decided to spend the bucks on the Defender. My husband was skeptical, but I was desperate.
    Initially, it wasn't properly placed and I thought that I had made an expensive mistake. After we read the placement directions, viewed the CD and moved it to the recommended area of our yard, the Tiger mosquitos flocked to the Defender to dehydrate and die. We have won the battle with the Asian Tigers and now are using the Octenol cartridges to catch the everyday garden variety mosquitos.

    We started using the Mosquito Magnet on July 1 and are very happy with the results. We still have some mosquitos and I get bitten every now and then, but I don't have to coat myself with OFF and I can enjoy a cup of coffee or a glass of wine in the garden.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Works great for me!
    I read these reviews before I bought a Mosquito Magnet Defender, and, though there seemed to be some disagreement as to whether this machine actually works, I found that Consumer Reports liked it, so I decided to shell out the money to buy one.
    I just set up the machine in my backyard on July 3 after reviewing the placement assistant on the included instruction c/d. It was very easy to set up (once I had the propane tank, it took about half an hour including 20 minutes warm-up time). Mosquitoes started swarming around the machine after it had been running for an hour. In three days I've emptied the trap twice. I counted over 100 mosquitoes each time (a tip: open the trap in a plastic bag to prevent the live mosquitoes from flying out). I'm sure I that's a fraction of the probably three trillion mosquitoes living on my half-acre lot, but - hey - it's a dent.
    I could actually go out on the deck today (in the rain) and not get bitten. I'm looking forward to see how it works over the next month (how long the manufacturer claims it takes to break the mosquito breeding cycle).
    At this point, I'm very happy with my Mosquito Magnet Defender.

    5-0 out of 5 stars I Love This Thing!
    The Mosquito Magnet is destined to be one of those indispensible items to have in-and-around anyone's home. This thing is terrific. Before I got my computer, DVD, and cell phone, I couldn't imagine life with them, now I cannot imagine life without them. So it is with the Mosquito Magnet.

    I live in Maine, Mosquito and Black Fly Central. The bugs here are the size of small housecats, and are happy to hold you hostage until you pay a handsome ransom... of your blood. I researched bug-catching devices and bug killers galore, in Consumer Reports, all over the internet, everywhere. The Mosquito Magnet was hands-down the most-recommended item around. Amazon clearly offered the best deal. Free Shipping, $50 off my next purchase, and a free box of octenol cartridges. OK, I was sold.

    The assembly was a breeze. Turned on the propane tank, plugged the thing in, and wahoo! I have had it for just three weeks, and upon emptying the bug box for the first time, it was absolutely packed with a solid brick of dead mosquitoes and blackflies! Ewww! Thousands and thousands of them! Unbelievable! Damnedest thing I ever saw! And everyone of those little buggers I "offed" was one less to bite me in the @ss. And more importantly, one less to survive thereafter, laying eggs and spawning the next generation of little fiends.

    I have already noticed a dramatic decrease in ANYTHING buzzing about me while noodling around the garden and grill. This little darlin' works slick as snot on a doorknob! And my home is on a lake in the woods of Maine, with lots of fresh water and foliage everywhere for the little buggers to live in. Not anymore, thanks to the Mosquito Magnet. I was a skeptic at first (my wife, too, thought the money would've been better spent paying a high school kid 10 cents apiece to swat them one at a time!), but now having lived with it, I'm so thrilled that I'm telling EVERYONE about it!

    A caution: When they say "Change the tank every 21 days", they mean it. I tried to weasel a few extra days out of the Rhino tank, and at the end of day 22, the propane tank was spent. Make sure you have a spare handy, so you can make a smooth transition. I've read about other folks' problems with gas flow and starting problems. No such problems here. It has worked perfectly in every regard.

    The other deal is, I see no reason why you'd need the bigger, and much more expensive models. My property is about 5 acres of woods, but the little Defender is true to its name! Does a terrific job, and even the specs on the larger models fail to provide convincing data on why or how they should be superior.

    You, too, will love this thing. It's crazy to spend umpteen thousands on a home, and then be held hostage by bugs such that you cannot enjoy it. The Defender is the best $300 you'll ever spend for your yard.

    4-0 out of 5 stars So far, great!
    I live next to conservation land, and my Mosquito Magnet has caught 1/2 of it's basket full of mosquitos in less that one 21 day cycle. Mosquitos hover around it all the time.

    The only downside is that it was hard to get running the first time. It may require level ground (my first try was at a slight slant), and I had problems with getting it to feed from my propane tank.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Don't bother in Maryland
    Used one of these for 6 weeks on the Eastern Shore of MD and didn't catch 6 mosquitos in that time. They don't tell you until you open the box that you shouldn't use the octenol if you have Asian Tiger mosquitos which is what we mainly have.

    Out the price of 2 tanks of propane and a third spare tank I had purchased, but I returned the "magnet" to Hom. Depo. for a refund.

    They shouldn't sell these things in states that they don't work in. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Still a killing machine: 7 week update
    Original review below: So far 2 propane tanks, 3 weeks each. The machine is virtually silent. I skipped using the CO2 "quick clear" cartridge as recommended after the first tank and the machine shut down 2 weeks into the second tank. Quick clear solved the problem. Our large yard has embedded woods, shrubs, wet areas and this year has been very wet. Bugs are out in force and the machine continues to catch loads of mosquitos and no-see-ums but less than a few weeks ago. I change the net when the fan is covered... about every other day. I wash out the old net after the contents stop moving. I treat it like a vacuum cleaner bag with the cleaner = more suction theory. Compared to our neighbors, our pool area is mosquito free. Placement is critical and must consider shade and the downwind CO2 dispersion. Would I buy another Liberty Plus? Probably not. Am I sorry I bought it? No. The technology works but I don't understand how the Liberty series is rated for 1 acre. I assume it generates a larger CO2 plume. In hindsight, for the money I think I'd rather have two $300 Defenders and set up a perimeter. Of course, that presumes the Defender kills like the Liberty. I'm going to move the machine and see if I can thin the biting population in a different part of the yard.

    (original review) We've had the MM for 4.5 weeks and so far it's worked as advertised. It was a big bite in the wallet but it's allowed us and the kids the use of our backyard pool and deck through twilight for the first time in 6 years. It's under an apple tree for shade and it sucks in an incredible amount of mosquitos and no-see-ums from the nearby bushes and damp areas.
    First propane lasted 3 weeks, as expected. The MM shut down once by itself but started right back up. I empty the net every 2 days. I recommend swapping the full net for an empty one because dumping out the squirming mass into a trash bag is a horror show. You can tie off the full net and let the active ones die. After all these years it's great to be able to enjoy the yard and it's sweet revenge on the biters.

    3-0 out of 5 stars The First One Wasn't Working........
    I received my Libery Plus on April 5th. I pulled it out of the box and everything listed in the instructions was included in the box (alaways nice) and the Liberty appeared to be a quality product. I had a newly-purchased propane tank that I immediately connected to the Liberty - I had high hopes for this machine!

    The Liberty wouldn't start.

    It failed repeatedly to complete the warmup cycle. I tweaked the prpoane connection, double-checked the battery and everything else that I could think of. My first call to tech support (after a 10 minute wait) resulted in a few more sugggestions from the rep as to what may be the problem with my unit.

    I tried them all and the unit still wouldn't complete the start cycle. A second call to tech support verified that the igniter in my unit was not operating. Tech Support offered to send me a replacement unit without hesitation and didn't ask for a credit card number as some manufacturers try to do. They sent me a second one with no issues.

    The second one worked as advertised though it hasn't been running long enough to catch anything yet. Don't buy one of these unless you are willing to chance a non-working unit as the quality control doesn't seem to be that good. If you do have problems you will find that Tech Support is top-notch.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Works Great once you get it started
    My mosquito Magnet is sucking down a bagful of sceeters every day. (I'm guessing that's about 1000 or more mosquitos per day). It has returned our back yard to us. Well worth the price and the struggle to get it running.

    And it was a struggle to get it running; most of which had to do with the propane supply. They aren't kidding when they tell you to open the valve on the propane tank very slowly. I now do about 1/8th of a turn in 30 seconds. Once I did that, my starting problems came to an end. In my case, I also learned to open the valve only partially....Only to the point where I could begin to hear the gas flowing and no further. The Mosquito Magnet has a very sensitive regulator that will slam shut if too much gas presure is applied to it. This makes the machine think its connected to an empty tank. (That's my theory... for what's it's worth...I'm not an expert on propane and propane accessories)

    If you are not the type of person who is willing to patiently twiddle with something until it works, you may not want this. I wouldn't call it a typical plug and play consumer appliance. Hopefully, they will develop it further so that it will be easier to start in the future.

    If a little twiddling doesn't scare you and you are ready to buy, but are torn between the two models "Liberty" and the "Liberty Plus" , get the the Liberty Plus. I had a Liberty last summer and it got fried sometime during our numerous power outages (there were about five caused by storms). It seems the mosquito magnet needs to have its internal fan running for about 1/2 hour after it shuts down. If it doesn't, it will burn up on the inside. Since the Liberty is connected to household current, the fan goes off whenever power is interupted. This does not allow the machine to cool off and thus it becomes damaged. The Liberty Plus has a battery operated fan and is therefore not subject to this kind of failure. In addition, you need to plug it in only once at the beginning of the season to charge it up. When its operating, I'm assuming that the fan is somehow run by propane. The battery is just for start ups and cool downs.

    I am sort of peeved that I didn't realize that my first machine got fried until after the waranty was out (Isn't that the way it usually works?), But when machine worked, it worked so well, that I was willing to buy another. I guess you could say I'm a sucker----a sucker for a mosquito free back yard. That's what Mosquito Magnet has done in my case.

    1-0 out of 5 stars DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY
    I've had the Freedom 2000 for several years now. I have had multiple problems with it and I figure it has caught about one mosquito for each tank of propane I have bought. I have seen a total of about 7 unlucky mosquitoes captured in a year.

    I didn't even bring it out last year because I figured I didn't want to spend any more money on propane. It turns out that my wife has a friend of a friend that works for American Biophysics and she said they were awesome, so I figured I would try it again.

    After trying it again, I still think it is a complete waste of the $900 I spent on it.

    Complaints:
    1) It takes 3 or 4 tries over several hours to get it running.
    2) It mysteriously shuts down.
    3) It doesn't consistently run the fan fast enough to suck even a tiny piece of tissue paper up the horn.
    4) I was paying for an attractant for a whole year that actually repelled Tiger mosquitoes.
    5) American Biophysics sticks to their one year warranty, so if you buy one, get them to buy it back before the year is up. They are unyielding after 12 months!!!!

    Funny enough after talking to several of their tech support people over the last few days, they realized that my MM is a piece of junk and offered to let me part with some more money to get a replacement--Uh, I may look funny, but I didn't just fall off the turnip truck!!!

    I'd recommend buying a hose-end bottle of insecticide and spraying your yard. This ended up working much better than the MM.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Avoid this Product
    You should avoid Mosquito Magnet products. They are poorly made. They catch a handful of mosquitos, but not enough to make a difference. They are very expensive, and require constant add-on purchases. Use Deet or screened porches instead. ... Read more
