Summary: I have had this for a couple of months. It does not pick up anymore. It is not clogged and the filter is clean. This is one of the worst vacuums I have owned, and the most expensive. The tool system is awkward and cumbersome.
Summary: I hate to admit I was wrong so writing this is hard. I researched the Dyson and thought that spending the extra money would be worth it. We have had this vacuum for over a year and it is the WORST investment I ever made.
Summary: Got this Dyson DC40 (refurbished) from Overstock.com. This vacuum does its job but is unbearably loud and this is a DEALBREAKER. We spent almost 3 times more money on this vacuum cleaner compared to an equal performer and thought we are getting a well-designed, quality product.
Summary: This is a mediocre machine and i got sucked in by the hype (no pun intended). I bought it directly from the manufacturer who asked for, but has not posted my review (all of their reviews are 4 and 5 stars).
Summary: If you are planning on using this on low pile or tile flooring, forget it. The suction is terrible. On carpeting, it's just okay, but on anything lower pile or flooring, the suction is sub-par. The vacuum is not worth 1/2 of the money.

Summary: what is all the fuss about with Dyson? I will never know! this hoover is light and easy to manoeuvre. that is all I can say, It states in the advert it is twice the suction of any upright hoover.
Summary: There was NO comparison to my old regular Dyson and this one. The beater bar and bristles are smaller and spaced further apart, the vacuum was loud and making a lot of cracking noises which made me think I put it together wrong but I did not and I was having a hard time just moving it around.
Summary: I would like to say first of all that the Dyson DC40 has good suction and that is where it ends. I used to own a DC33 but gave that to my son when we purchased the DC40. That was a big mistake! Let me give you a list of the negatives on the DC40: 1. The cord is too short.
