Summary: Don't buy it. I got this one at Costco and the wand clip broke which made the vacuum not work, it requires the wand to go back in place for normal operation. The clip is made of cheap plastic which is no wonder why it lasted so little, it broke after a few uses.
Summary: I bought this product on clearance for half the price. Now I realize why it was on clearance. Moved into a new house and wanted to clean the house. This served the purpose, however I am not going to keep this. I will be returning this for one and only one reason (below cons).
Summary: OK, I just finished using this item again and HAVE to write the review now. Previously (and still do) have a Dyson DC14 Animal which has worked well for many years. Unfortunately, there are too many tradeoffs with a compact version of the same/similar.
Summary: I bought this vacuum at Costco after my first Dyson stopped working (because my husband sucked water with it and burned the motor). Because I love my first Dyson so much, I absolutely wanted another Dyson, and this one was fairly priced - still expensive though. But THIS ONE IS HORRIBLE!!
Summary: I'm disappointed with this Dyson. I also have the Dyson D24 which I love and use all the time. Compared to that, this has no suction on carpet. I bought it through one of the discount buying things (sorry don't remember which one) so I paid 1/2 price.
Summary: Literally just got the vacuum this afternoon. I'm considering sending it back. At first sight, I was disappointed with the length of the hose. The description states 8 ft. Apparently that's from the base of the vacuum at the floor to the end of two extensions on the hose and then maybe it comes...
Summary: We have owned Dysons in the past, and liked them. This one, however, has been a complete dud. It clogs. It comes apart. It overheats. The only good thing about it is the compact lightweight easy to maneuver design.
Summary: I've had this vacuum for over a year now and I use it just about every day. There are some things it does very well and some things that it just doesn't do. I like that it's lightweight and compact; it's the only vacuum I've ever had that's narrow enough to get between chair legs.
