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. The bad: We purchased this vacuum on sale and in the sale ad it showed a video of the unit in use and in that same video they show an attachment in use for picking up pet hair and it was just pretty impressive in the amount...
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.. We have a husky and she is in the middle of blowing her coat and it started to loose suction fast (even when we empty the bin 4 time in one room when she sheds)
Summary: I read and re-read the reviews for this vacuum and i must say i am slightly disappointed. I think the separate head and easy empty bin are great, downside, cord and hose too short. Also, the suction not very good (traded in a vax u89 as it ripped the carpets due to the brush constantly on, but the suction alot better on the vax). If you dont have the brush on for rugs it doesn't collect dog hairs and when you have a german shepherd that's moulting it makes it hard work.
Summary: This is my second Dyson - the first one lasted 15 years of rough and tumble hard work. The second one, I only have a couple of comments in that the tools that attach to the cleaner are hard to get on and off, but its a matter of getting used to it, as opposed to the previous machine.
