Pros: No sign of it being refurbished other than the sticker on the box. The handle was purple and the canister was red but it was pretty close to matching. Works great and performs just like the one we would borrow from the inlaws after our hoover broke.
Cons: Color of handle was not an exact match with the canister.
Overall Review: Strongly recommend this project.
