Summary: I have used this vacuum multiple times at a clients home. They insist I use it to vacuum their marble floors. I have a Bissell bagless upright $43 on sale, a little more if not. So I have a comparison I use almost every day. Please folks save your money!
Summary: I can't believe anyone would give this vacuum a good review. All I can figure is either they have been duped by the commercials and think the actor with the charming accent really did design these vacuums and would be hugely disappointed if they didn't like it, or they just have never experienced a...
Summary: The Dyson works well when it is running, but the power head has failed within 12 months of use; and that with only one carpet to clean! When it is being used the wand design feels cumbersome, a little difficult to control for someone of slight build.
Summary: this vacuum is terrible! if you have to clean something, don't buy it! I owned two Electrolux before this but I bought into the hype of dyson and bought this...it gets clogged constantly - that's probably why you take apart every inch of the vacuum - dyson was aware of its own flaws.
It's the gift that keeps giving, unfortunately not to you ...

Summary: Don't get fooled into overpaying by Dyson's very convincing marketing. I owned this machine for 5 years. We bought it because we had heard great things about the Dyson brand and their 4-year warranty.
Summary: This is a good vacuum and doesn't pull a lot of the fiber off if you vacuum Persian rugs. The turbine head part#906565-29 wears out in less than a year. We tried ordering 3rd head under warranty. Customer service tries to help and misses the mark. The bearings in the turbine head always wear out.
Summary: I have always been a Dyson fan until I bought this vacuum. I don't even feel like it is a Dyson. Not good for stairs at all - power head is way to light and does not pick up anything. I contacted Dyson to trade for another model and they blew me off. Will never buy another Dyson product.
Summary: Not as good as my electrolux twin clean. The dyson is very loud, mostly because all the wheels are plastic vs rubber and it sometimes scratches my wood floors. To switch from carpet to wood, you have to bend down and pull out the filter on suction head, very uncomfortable.
Summary: I heard a lot of positive opinions about Dyson products, but never really investigated them closely until it became apparent that we had to replace out Miele canister. We didn't really consider any of the Dyson uprights, since we have all hard floors and need to be able to vacuum underneath...
Summary: Purchased this a year ago when the kids starting doing the vacuuming. At first the wife and kids liked the light weight and sucking power....but these positives were short lived. The turbine head constantly gets tangled with hair and stops working.
