That is a great deal! I was lucky enough to have saved all of my airmiles and that airmiles offered it as a reward so I actually got mine free.
If it is at all possible for you, I would highly recommend getting it. I couldn't believe all of the cat dander that this thing sucked up out of my furniture. I've never come across a vacuum that practically sucked up a whole couch cushion! And that turbine head for furniture is so totally amazing.
However I see the one for $250.00 has a hard floor brush! Mine didn't come with that. I has all of the attachments showing there, but instead of the floor tool, it came with this tool:http://www.english.dysoncanada.ca/ra...el=DC14-ANIMAL
I just saw that it is adjustable for hard floors. I didn't know that. I thought it was just for getting under furniture over carpted areas. I'll have to have another look. I was concerned about scratching the wood.
