Summary: we bought this vac 3 years ago after being tired of replacing a vac every year or two. in theory, it works great. our problem is that it overheats and shuts off after about 30 minutes, less in some instances.
MAJOR DESIGN FLAWS! Terrible for those with allergies!

Summary: First off, I do love the suction this Dyson has -- I've had it just over a year now. HOWEVER, my biggest issue is that the bagless canister is A JOKE! I've never had a dirtier vacuum in my entire life!
Summary: I was so excited when I purchased my dyson canister vacuum and initially it performed well. However, the love story ended within 6 months. It manuevers well and the suction is fairly good but it leaves some dog hair on carpets. These are the positives.

Summary: I hate to say it, but this vacuum cleaner is basically a failure. There are lots of reviews of this machine, so I will keep this brief. The low lights: the brush head that comes with the machine is not powered, unlike the upright models. The brush head is spun around by the suction power.
Horrible job to empty container...DoN't buy if you have ASTHMA or dust allergies!

Summary: I love this vacuum! I've had Dyson uprights, so I looked forward to getting this canister now that we live in a house with all hardwood and tile floors. It does an excellent job on my floors, although I don't use the tool that it came with - I use the "flat out" tool instead because it does a much...
