Summary: Disgusting product. All hat and no boots. Hasn't worked well since day one. I have cleared every filter to spec, operated the unit per the manual and it actually gets more carpet fiber on top of the brush housing than it does dirt and trash in the hold.
Turns out this is maybe the worst vacuum I've ever owned

Summary: I bought a Dyson because I was sick and tired of vacuums getting clogged and hair getting caught in them and basically ruining them after less than a year. The world raves about Dyson vacuums as if they've solved the vacuum conundrum. Turns out this is maybe the worst vacuum I've ever owned.
Summary: Our Dyson is a disappointing, high-maintenance burden. After every use, we have to open the unit and unclog the openings -- and I mean after every use, however light the job. The unit simply fails to collect dust and light debris without constant maintenance.
Innovative design and technology coupled with poor quality of construction and workmanship

Summary: Innovative design and technology coupled with poor quality of construction and workmanship. The beater bar stopped working shortly after purchase, and the button that turned it off and on seemed to be the ultimate issue. The button would stick and require that you took the assembly apart.
Summary: This vacuum is not good for picking up any lint from my floors. My handheld Shark vacuum does a much better job. I will never purchase another Dyson, due to poor performance. Due to the high price, I assumed the vacuum was reliable. I was wrong. My advice is to stick with Shark products.
Summary: The only positive thing about the Dyson is it looks. It has a pretty neat style. However as for the Vacuum itself it is a cheap plastic and poor quality. The Vacuum has horrible suction because the Wind Tunnel and Filter clog from fine Dust or Sand.
Summary: I purchased this Dyson model for use in my office suite, and it has not had heavy usage. In fact, it gets pretty light use. As we all know, the Dyson vacuums cannot be categorized as inexpensive, and this purchase was no exception.

Summary: I decided to splurge and buy this over priced vacuum, expecting it to do an excellent job. I only have 1 small dog who weighs 15 lbs. I constantly have to stop and clean the brush with my hands which quickly gets full of dog hair, or tangled sewing thread or anything else.
Summary: Garbage! Don't waste your money on this. For something this expensive it should work better. My old Hoover wind tunnel performs much better! Flimsy hoses and attaching hoses that come off all the time. Does not vacuum up objects such as cheerios or rabbit food easily.
