Summary: I saw my daughter's dyson 45 and was astounded at the ease and the amount of dog hair it picked up. After I went home, I ordered one right away. Service people at M'Hardy were polite and knowledgeable and sent my order right away. Also,I liked the thank you note they sent for purchasing the item (seldom seen in this day and age and yet means so much) Only thing I would suggest to change is having a switch that you do not have to hold it on all the time to vacuum.
Summary: We purchased this vacuum a couple of weeks ago on the advise of a friend. This product does not disappoint. Its small, but gets the job done. Its easy to use and best of all...it does not take up alot of space in our small condo.
Summary: If you do your homework, you know what you can expect from the vacuum. I have a cat and dog, bare floors in my condo, and the first time I used it, I could actually feel myself start to breathe more easily. A 30-minute battery and a little bigger dirt container would be nice. I don't like that when the container is full, the power cuts ... same thing when the battery suddenly runs out. Yes, you can use the hand held device to clean your car ...
Summary: Was expecting more than I got. Picks up okay bot clogs at the turns.
I had to dismantle and clean it after the first use. A big hairball. Also,
I hate the switch that you have to hold in all the time.
Summary: Congratulations to Dennis who won this vacuum through our Fresh Wave sample campaign. Here is what he had to say:
Many BIG thanks for the awesome Dyson DC45 vacuum. It sure has come in handy as we have 3 cats and one of my biggest vacuuming issues is the carpeted stairs – and the accumulated cat hair!! In the past, I would leave that for a week or more as it was a bit of a challenge hauling the vacuum out with long hoses etc.
Excerpt: I just finished reading the reviews for this product and decided to add my own review. First, this product is not MEANT to be a full on vaccum for your major vaccum jobs. It does the small jobs very well. I have an under 1000 square foot town house that has carpets in two rooms and the rest is laminate. This vaccum is fabulous for this space, as there is only me and no pets. I do agree that it is way overpriced for the product.
