I was very, very disappointed when I realized there wasn't anything wrong with the machine that a new charge didn't fix. But 2 1/2 minutes run time is ridiculous.

I purchased this piece because my husband wanted something from Dyson, but I was a bit disappointed in the power of the suction. It works pretty well for very small spills of crumbs, but would not recommend for much more than that. The battery charge does not last very long and I have to keep it plugged in all the time in order for it to be ready for anything major. The price was more than what similar products are I am sure due to the name brand, but I was not as impressed as I would have liked.
Good value for the price. Better then my Red Devil. I like not having to empty or change vacuum bags. Could use more power.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Very good
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Strong suction but takes several passes to pick up dog hair

I had to return this because I got bad info from another retailer. they told me this would operate my dyson 35 attachments. it does not. same design. however this unit does not have the electric connection to operate the mechanic parts of the attachments. I have 2 of these. I know the shark is touted as being better but im not sure. never used one. I do know the convenience of being cordless is great. we use it nonstop.
Prior to purchasing the Dyson handheld we were using an old dust buster to clean up crumbs left behind by our daughter. The Dyson provides incredible suction power in a nice compact handheld. It came with a brush and thin tip attachment that are both handy to use. One click release to empty the canister is a big plus. I would highly recommend this vacuum for small cleanup jobs around the home.
This is a great little hand held vacuum. Best "dust buster" I have ever owned. Very light weight. Easy to clean. The charge life is fine as I usually just use it on the regular power setting for small jobs. Will last greater than 12 minutes. For my use, this is completely sufficient.
Dyson is the best vacuum, I have this for myself, and love it, I bought it for my son who lives in a converted warehouse in a large city, the brick mortar is crumbling in his apartment, and it drives me crazy. He and his roommate would not vacuum it up, so I got them this vacuum, and they now think it is fun and funny that I spent so much on a vacuum for them. I don't care, I just want them to be safe, it works and it is cool looking also!
As stated, I've only used the hand vac twice so far, but it's done a great job on my carpet on stairs. It is a very pricy hand held, but I expect it to last a long time, due to the Dyson name and reputation. And, there was a lovely $$$ off coupon on the site, which made it easier to decide to buy the vac.

- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Only used twice so far, but it's pretty cool. Really picked up all the fuzz and other stuff that gathers on the carpet on the stairs at the base of the risers. My large vacuum cleaners just can get into the corner areas. I think I'll be happy with this hand vac.
