  • Summary: Very cool looking, very good reviews by many. For the price, though ... When I unpacked the DC40 from "Santa", I couldn't get over how toy-like it actually seemed. The plastic did not feel as strong as the plastics I have become used to in other vacuums we own(ed). I feel it will break very easily. Also various small plastic clips/slides/buttons that felt the same.

Happy with the new box, Disappointment with using experiences

cotmulzzic, Amazon
23 October 2013
  • Summary: Pros: 1. Very light, so it is easy to maneuver. Also, it does not hurt my wrist, arm, and back. 2. Easy cleaning system. 3. Good suction power. 4. Works well on the rug-type carpet. Cons: 1. Price is way too high for the performance: It is a just about average performing vacuum. 2. The hose is almost useless: A. It is almost like fixed plastic rather than expandable hose that can reach out as it is advertised. B.

  • Summary: Simple, light-weight, maneuverable; if it actually cleaned the floor it would be a great product. The cheap, junk vacuum that this replaced picked up twice as much. For the money, I'm sure that you can find a much better product. Dyson seems to be about style and hype, not function.

Not worth the $$

Marmfam, Amazon
26 April 2013
  • Summary: I have owned a Dyson for several years, but since we have 3 dogs, decided to upgrade to the Dyson animal ball. First disappointing thing is the cord length is about 11 feet shorter than my previous Dyson!! Were people getting tangled in it?? Why shorten the cord?? Mine keeps unplugging because the cord is so short. I was used to doing certain areas without having to unplug several times to move the cord.

Doesn't get all pet fur

Barinr, Amazon
20 February 2013
  • Summary: For such an expensive vacuum cleaner it's inexcusable that it only picks up some types of pet fur but not all. We have three cats and a dog. For reasons I can't explain the cat fur from two of the cats gets wrapped around the roller and stays there until its clogged. I cant address durability. Its only been used once. It wont get a second chance. It's going back.

Expensive for mediocre suction

Evan Gillespie, Amazon
27 January 2013
  • Summary: Out of the box the unit liked to tip over and had mediocre suction. We certaintly felt it wasn't worth the price and we are thankful it can be returned through Costco. We prefer the half-price alternatives, even if they don't come with a 5-year warranty.

DC40

ljhero, Dyson
28 May 2014
  • Summary: Part broke first time used and had to get in touch with Dyson for a replacement, power head gets clogged very easily and has to be cleaned out. Not impressed for the price that has to paid. Not suitable for any large areas as the collection bucket is to small.

disappointed

foggy, Dyson
2 April 2014
  • Summary: What a let down, my old dyson was so much better than this model. It is awkward to manover, but the worst thing is it leaves track marks on the carpet so I am constantly having to go over it again and again. I gave my old one to my daughter but am considering to swap back . Very disappointed.

DC40 Upright Vacuum Cleaner

Dotly, Harvey Norman
19 July 2013
  • Excerpt: Assembling this unit was quite straight forward. I did prefer to use the written guidelines rather than the pictures with the 'click' reference. The cleaning performance of this vacuum cleaner is excellent. No issues in this area. It is also very light and easy to use. However, I do not like the way it tracks on low pile carpets. The track marks are extremely evident so I have to go over the carpet with my old vacuum cleaner to eliminate the trackmarks.
