Summary: The vacuum part of this unit works really well and it does have great suction power. But it gets clogged way to easy, and in three different parts of the vacuum. The hose, body, and the front and I mean clogs very easy.
Summary: The machine does a wonderful job of picking up hair which , of course, it was designed for. The appliance has many design defects. The on/off button is too low and is right next to the canister release button, resulting in release of the canister rather than turning it on or off.
Summary: We've had our dyson about 2 months and have really liked it but we tried to use it to sweep up the needles after we took down our tree today and it turns out that PINE NEEDLES ARE DYSON's KRYPTONITE!!
Summary: The good: The vacuum seems to do what its supposed to do and that's suck dirt off the floors and carpets. My wife does like the weight of the unit and the easy handling of the vacuum. And she says it does a very good job and she is impressed with it.
Summary: Great when it works but the cleaning head keeps falling off. For an expensive vacuum the flanges where the cleaning head snaps on are really feeble. Any pull such as when you turn the unit and the head falls off.
Summary: We got the vacuum and had warranty with it, it broke within 2 weeks of having it. Now a year later its completely broken and we need to buy a new one. It started spitting metal shavings into the filter..
DC40, Great, but could have been much better. Should have me test their products first!

Summary: I used to have my own cleaning business going theough college, so I appreciate fine cleaning gear and do most of this work at home, since I do it well. I have one of the early Dysons that this company made its reputation on.
