Summary: Maybe it's just me but I can't imagine a better tool for cleaning floors at my apartment. There's cheap white carpeting in the bedroom looks like new each time Dyson takes a stab at it, there's also laminated "hard wood" floors which are pleasure to clean with this machine. One complaint I do have though, that's the canister release. When you press the button and the bottom opens all rubbish stays inside so you have to remove pieces by hand.
Summary: Very good vacuum overall. I gave a good vs great rating because I should have gone with the upright. For me, the canister is a little difficult to pull around my house. Would be great for a smaller house or apartment, but harder for me with stairs. Very easy to remove the canister and clean it out. Really picks up the dog hair!
Summary: when my dyson arrived the box was beat up but when i opened it the vacuum was fine it seemed a little cheese and i thought what did i do but i walked away for about an hour came back determined to put it together and try it before my husband got home and i did i was so happy then i plugged it in.
