Summary: A great Vacuum. I brought it home, put it together with ease and for fun used my old vac before using the Dyson. As I read in previously reviews, the first cleaning with the old vac which was only a year old and rated very good I thought did a good job. Then I vacuumed again with the new Dyson. Wow, a lot of stuff that did not come up with the old vac. Dust as well as dog hair the old vac missed. I am sold on the product.
Excerpt: My new dyson is amazing! Never knew how pathetic my vacuum cleaner was until I vacuumed with my new dyson for the first time. Maintanance is extremely quick and easy. This was defiantly my best purchase for 2014!
Excerpt: I bought my Dyson from Target in August 2014 and absolutely love it! I have carpeted floors and 3 cats and I am simply amazed at how much cat hair and litter the Dyson picks up! I have to empty my canister twice per vaccum and the first time I used it, I had to empty the canister 4 times before I was done! It's incredibly powerful, lightweight and quiet. The easy open canister is really easy to use. I would absolutely recommend this vaccum to a friend.
Excerpt: This Vac. is awesome. Many different options, super light weight but heavy duty pick up power! Nothing is every tangled and we love it! If you are undecided, consider this; I compared my old vac to this one and used the old one first, then ran my Dyson. HOLY MOLY A TON OF DIRT CAME UP. WOW worth every penny.
Excerpt: Having purchased Dyson products before I have to say this has outdone my expectations once again. Out of all the vacuums I've used this is got to be one of the best. It maneuvers easily, sucks microscopic dirt up from wood floors, and carpets. It's light weight easy to manage and not bulky & heavy like other vacuums. It's versatile in that there are many functions with the heads they provide you. I do wish however there was a place in or on the vacuum to store these.
Summary: I had a much larger model of a Dyson, so when we needed a new one, I wanted to come back to the brand. This particular model does not have the type of power needed for a whole house. It clogs constantly and loses suction. For the price we paid, we could have gotten a full sized Shark vacuum. We just spent an hour unclogging it- such a disappointment.
