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.
Summary: My daughter wanted a real working vacuum that was her size, which led me to this product. It says there is enough suction for small papers or debris but the one I got has absolutely none. It makes noise, but no suction. This left us all very disappointed.
Summary: Dyson. Never loses suction... Because it doesn't have any. Sarcasm aside (but I hope I made you chuckle), this isn't a very good hoover. My parents once owned a Dyson (which was some ancient model they bought secondhand) and they weren't impressed by its less than stellar suction performance.
Summary: As a cleaner this product is fine, I purchased this as a ligtweight option for my pensioner father in December 2011. However I was very annoyed to find out he has been cold called today (December 2012) by a company called excelservicing about taking out a maintenance contract at £60 a year!
Summary: This model has amazing suction, too much for some tasks. The suction is adjustable when the wand part is attached but not otherwise. With attachments fixed directly to the not very flexible pipe, you have only full suction.
Useless for allergy sufferers ...oh yes...and carpets!

Summary: Frankly anyone who actually suffers from a dust mite allergy should not buy a bagless vacuum cleaner - which excludes any Dyson machine as the bagless design is their calling card. Allergy sufferers definitely need bag vacuum cleaners in order to contain the dust on disposal.
Summary: Like many people I like the idea of a Dyson. They are the iMac of the vacuum cleaner world and when you open the box you feel as though you have made the right purchase. Every component exudes design - the instruction manual, the way it's been packed and the product itself.
Summary: I bought this model after the similar model Dyson I'd had for over 10 years, and which I loved, finally died. This one has good suction, and packs away small but it's a pig to empty, and for this reason alone I've given it such a low score.
Summary: I've been using this for a week now and am extremely impressed. We have a 3 bedroom town house and this is the ideal size cleaner for us. It is compact, powerful, and everything works together very well indeed.
Flimsy, not great at suction, poor for taller people

Summary: Bought this and took it back after one day - the main problem is that I am 5'10" and I found that the hose wasn't long enough for me, even when fully extended. I was getting back ache in just a few minutes due to leaning over because of the short hose. My other half is 6'3" so had more of a problem.
