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.

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??

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.

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.

Dyson

Sally, Very

  • Summary: Nice looking Dyson, would never use anything else. Good suction. However, drum far too small and tools do not rotate like my old Dyson. Wish I'd realised before I used it, I would have returned it and chosen a different one! Unfortunately I'm stuck with it!
  • Pros: Good suction
  • Cons: Drum far too small. Tools do not rotate like my old Dyson.

Not the quality expected

Teresa, Very
28 July 2015
  • Summary: I have had a Dyson for many years now but my last one finally gave up. I purchased this model because it looked similar to my old one. I have found that the Cylinder that collects the dirt is incredibly hard to empty - as I have a dog, there are quite a lot of hairs each time I vacuum and the...
  • Pros: Amazing suction
  • Cons: Cylinder/extension hose/ball

not as good as past models

fazersmart , Argos
17 June 2015
  • 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.
