Ok, so I am sure I will never hear from Dyson, though I would still be up to it, I just simply couldn't wait! I needed a good vacuum now. So I continued my internet search and eventually ended up in Walmart. I really, wanted that Dyson.... but just simply didn't have $400 to spare. So... I bought my first hoover. It is the Hoover Mach 5. So far..... I am in love!! I love it. I had broken my decision making down to this one or a new one called the Infinity. I really like it and it looked great, but it came down to sticking to a brand I knew. And I have to admit, that the sticker on the box that read, "better then Dyson" sold me. Since it was at least half the cost. So... I brought it home. It is amazing. I have always had fairly cheap Vacuums, I just never realized sooo much why they are cheap. I emediatly opened it up and started Vacuuming! Seriously, I doubt many of you were Vacuuming your house at 7:00pm on New Years Eve... sad.. I know... Anyway, I vacuumed the area rugs on the main floor and the hallways and the family room! Oh my goodness, I could have been a vacuum sales person, gross, I can't believe I am showing you all this now, but I am! I am sold. So, now if Dyson were to want a real opinion on the earlier statement about weather or not the Hoover truly is better then the Dyson, I would still be very happy to give them a try, so for now, I will have to be a Hoover.... hmmm, nothing sounds very nice...... :) so we will see if I ever become a Dyson Diva!
