Expensive for mediocre suction

Evan Gillespie, Amazon
18 June 2012
  • 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.

Doesn't get all pet fur

Barinr, Amazon
18 June 2012
  • 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.

Not worth the $$

Marmfam, Amazon
18 June 2012
  • 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??

In my view not the best dyson

Sonia, Very

  • Summary: I have had a few dysons my view is this doesn't have the great suction previous ones have had. It needs emptying more and the hose is not flexible enough , esp with the extension on its clumsy to use.
  • Pros: Price
  • Cons: Hose

Dyson

  • Pros: Good suction
  • Cons: Drum far too small. Tools do not rotate like my old Dyson.

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
