Summary: There are several things wrong with this vacuum, and they overwhelm the good things. The first problem is the cord. Or the hose. Probably the cord. Some combination of the two isn't long enough. You have to unplug and move to get to the other side of the room. And my rooms aren't that big. The second problem is the suction. It's OK, but this is a premium priced vacuum. It should have more suction.
Summary: WOW! I just took my Dyson out of the box and started using it this am. This is the very LOUDEST, screaming vacuum I have ever heard in my life. I'm seriously considering returning it because I hate the noise.
Summary: The Dyson is powerful, lightweight, relatively compact and cleans very well. Having 5 cats, we need all the help we can get. On the downside, the vacuum is made almost entirely of plastic and feels cheap. This may or may not be a problem depending on how it stands up to use over time. Only time will tell.
Summary: Ill tell you what this product is so amazing I never new something with this power could make me soo happy. At night, in the morning, or even if I had nothing to do while on lunch. I found myself Vacuuming everyday of the week sometimes twice. Believe me this beats nickle and dime-ing myself everyday off of Rosedale.
Summary: This vacuum is so heavenly! It is so powerful that it vacuumed the carpet off of my floor. I definitely agree with the last persons review, I cannot stop vacuuming several times a day! Thank you for stocking this vacuum, I am in LOVE with DYSON!
Summary: This is the perfect product if you live in an apartment with no rugs, no more than 600 sq ft, no pets, and in an urban area that is largely paved over so there is no dirt. Don't waste your money if you have more to clean than that. The suction won't even pick up a little beebee or a small stone or leaf. The cord is so short that if you have a regular sized room you'll need to have multiple outlets to get the entire thing.
Summary: Had it two years, most frustrating thing is that is basically an excellent product but that it could be SO MUCH BETTER with a few minor adjustments - wait for the upgraded version!!! Pros: This vacuum lives up to one key feature that Dyson uses as a selling point: the filtration is HEPA filter grade - excellent. Also, no bags or throw away containers (hard to believe any vacuums are made otherwise) is a plus.
Summary: I have had this vacuum for three years now and the very first problem is the cord. It's too short and the attachments are very clumbsy and don't get close enough to the surfaces and tend to fall off easily. Now the suction is not the best . The filters are fine but the carpets are getting matted down it's not really fluffing up.Maybe the design of the interior carpet head should be better?
Excerpt: This powerful little cleaner is immense. We had previously bought something similar, but by no means did it have the suction and capacity as the Dyson Animal. I am so pleased I invested in this item. It picks up dog hairs in a breeze, is light and nimble to carry. I sound very sad, but I really do love it.
Excerpt: I have to say I wasn't to sure at first with this Hoover as I thought it ran out of charge way to quick, but then realised that the booster button was already switched on, once I found out how to turn it off, it's feels like the charge lasts longer than 20mins, I have 3 cats that moult like mad & I can still do the whole of my little flat within the 20 mins charge, I only gave it 4 stars cos I'd like it with a little more power/suction on the normal setting.
