Summary: The best handheld vac. Hefty but not heavy. Lightweight enough to use over and over without any issues. The turbo mode really sucks up dirt, the regular mode works very well. The attachments are nice. It's good to be able to share attachments with my regular dyson vacuum.
So far this is the best hand vac I have ever owned

Summary: So far this is the best hand vac I have ever owned. I have bought and used quite a few over the years, but they never work like I want them too. I was crossing my fingers that since this is so expensive, it would work. And it does. I only use the low setting and it works fine. If you use the high, it works faster, but then you don't have as much batter life. So far, the battery life seems great. It's easy to clean an it just works.
Because we have 2 dogs the vacuum (like everyone with dogs knows) filter starts smelling like dog if you do not clean the filter

Summary: We have a DC59 Motorhead Animal vacuum. Because we have 2 dogs the vacuum (like everyone with dogs knows) filter starts smelling like dog if you do not clean the filter often. Buying a second filter has allowed us to clean the original filter (it takes 24 hours to fully dry) and use this genuine Dyson part as a back up. The filter came quickly through the mail (postal office).
Summary: Took me a while to take the plunge due to the cost but this is great. This is our only vacum and great for quick clean ups. The only down side is that it is really loud and the air that blows out is pretty strong. But other than that perfect for the Car and crumbs!!
Not what I expected for a Dyson and that much money

Summary: Sadly this item is not what I was hoping for. The suction is good but only lasts for 7 min. It is cumbersome to use as you can not use your oe hand because you have to hold the trigger for it to work. The hose (I bought the extra attachments Kit) does not reach very far and the dusting feature cones not work at all like I hoped it would. Either I am using it wrong or it is just not designed to be user friendly.
Summary: This is a great unit for doing cars, it's powerful, light weight and quiet which is important because I wash car at 7 in the morning and don't want to wake anyone. It's easy to empty which helps keep me working more efficiently and this would have gotten a 5 if the battery lasted longer.
Summary: This was my first Dyson buy. I wanted to go small first before spending big money on the better models. This thing is great--I vacume with it by walking around on my knees because it's so much better than our cheap upright. I'd get another Dyson for sure.
... out the upright (also a dyson) and this is great for that

Summary: I needed a hand vacuum for utility usage that didn't take up too much space and for messes where I don't want to break out the upright (also a dyson) and this is great for that. Easy to clean and has done what I need it to do without even resorting to the turbo option. I can't comment on its usage for pets as I don't have one but it picks up human shed hair well.
