Summary: After reading the reviews, and seeing that this was on sale, I decided to take the plunge as well. My other vacuum was constantly needing belts or filters, so, I thought I would see what happens with the Dyson. It worked well. It was not as dramatic as some of the other reviews, but, it did pull out cat hair from our carpet that the other left behind. My wife likes the telescoping feature and says it is easier to push. I kind of do miss having a light on it, though.
Summary: While I agree I have never had a vacuum cleaner with such great suction, I found using it exhausting and hurt my back. I took it back, thank you Walmart. I have wood floors, large low pile area rugs and high pile area rugs. It would not hardly move on the high pile rug and was not user friendly when going from one pile to another.
Summary: As soon as I assembled the vacuum I tried it on a bare floor and it seemed to work fine. I then switched the setting to carpet and tried it on an oriental rug and the belt immediately started a very loud clicking noise. Stopped the machine and checked to see nothing was tangled but there was nothing. Repeated this a few times on other rugs and carpet and got same result.
Summary: I am very unhappy with this vacuum as it started making loud noises the third time I used it. We checked it out for obstructions and haven't found anything.The design of the front is also inconvenient since there is a part that sticks up too high to get under my kitchen cabinets, etc.We are returning it and will not be getting another one.
Excerpt: I was a little big disapointed about this vacuum because it was expensive so I was expecting it would be working very well but I was so wrong!!! With time, it lose its suction a lot and it never works as well as when it was new. Luckily, one day while I was using it, its motor burned! I was very happy because it gave me the occasion to run out to the store looking for a brand new one.
Summary: There are far better priced items offered at Overstock that do as good ,if not a better job. Felt it was a lot of hype about the product. Very confusing to use. Don't waste your $ on one. .Looks better than it performs. I'd have sent it back but I neglected to keep the box.
