Happy with the new box, Disappointment with using experiences
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.
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.
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??
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.
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.
Summary: I found this really heavy and wasnt easy to manouvere like it said i also found that on hard floors i had to go over stuff to get it picked up i dont know if it was faulty or just the way its meant to be i bought the dyson dc50 instead much lightier and so much easier to use well happy with the dc50
Summary: traded in my trusty but heavy DC15 animal for the DC40. Its lighter and quieter which is great and vacuums well another plus but the bin fills quickly so I'm emptying every couple of minutes and it frequently blocks which my old one never did.
