Close the thread, Fok. Not worth the grief. Used to be info here, but all I'm seeing are a bunch of spoiled children with poor social skills. It might be drawing a bit of traffic, but look at the type.
I have a Dyson DC35 that was around $200 CDN on the Dyson EBay store refurbished. Same warranty and parts, but comes in a different box. I don't regret it at all, it's been a great vacuum. I use it for stairs and the hardwood in the kitchen and livingroom, occasionally the car.
