Summary: Works great on hard floors but has difficulty on thick carpet and picking up pet hair. Also on thicker carpet the brush tends to stop, no enough power to keep it turning. Great for hard surfaces and accessing under furniture. Low pile carpet OK but still and issue picking up fine cat hair.
Excerpt: I have owned upright vacuums in the best. I bought pricier Dirt Devils and Black and Deckers but none of them worked right. Then I decided to lay down the money and get a Dyson, and I haven't regretted the decision one bit. I went for this design versus the upright because I find it easier to store.
Pros: Easy To Empty, Easy to Use, Efficient, Lightweight, Long Power Cord, Powerful/Good Suction
Summary: great vacuum. picks up debris even after using my old vacuum first. small size allows using under tables, chairs, beds, and other furniture. cannister is small but if it was larger you could not access above mentioned areas.
Summary: Update to RMA because of missing wand and doc: exchange arrived 2 weeks after Fedex pickup return. Vendor was prompt and efficient and DC26 works like a charm. I use this to supplement my other DC24, for hard to reach places.
