Second Dyson (first one lost to flood)...and have bought others since. They are always improving their products from the previous version.Read More
Shopper beware! I've had this for nine months and treated it very kindly. It is now Kaput! The brushes do not rotate or work; the suction has dramatically reduced and it is just not worth the effort to use. By the by, filters have been cleaned and replaced regularly, and all other instructions followed precisely. Luckily, I have an Electrolux Oxygen that works perfectly even after many years of use. I am beginning to wonder if Overstock staff write some of the reviews for this merchandise. Truly NOT up to snuff!Read More
LOVE THIS MACHINE! With two dogs in the house, I was at my wit's end keeping up with their daily shedding. My mother insisted that I get this vacuum and, after much pleading with my hubby, I finally got one. It is easy to operate and easy to clean. And, OMG, you'll be amazed at the dirt you'll get out of your 'clean" carpet! I vacuum twice a week now and can't believe what it picks up!Read More
Was not sure I could justify the money for a Vacuum but after the first use the house felt better. We have two cats and lesser vaccums were not up to the challenge. First time through the house I must have dumped 4 cats worth of fur in the garbage and it still keeps on going.Read More
Tested it on a small living room rug that I have vacuumed many times with my old unit. Picked up more dirt and dust than I thought could have been left. The same with my hardwood floors. There was that much dust remaining? Very happy with the Dyson.Read More
I'm a Dyson fan, I have to say that upfront. This is my third. With two dogs, I gotta have that kind of suction, otherwise the dog hair and smell take over my life. With daily or every other day usage, these vacs last us about two years and then the dog smell is IN THE VAC and it's kind of gross plus they seem to lose a tiny bit of suction as they go along. I think that's because they're too good, meaning they grab everything, right down to the finest microscopic particles. And then it sort of builds up inside the machine. This model requires a monthly change/cleaning of filter, so that MIGHT address it. The filters are washable. So that's a plus. This is a new design...the head doesn't have all the little suction holes and there are some other engineering features you can read about on their site. I'd say it's definitely more powerful. This is my first "ball" and I LOVE it. I love how it moves and the design allows you to smoothly transition from bare floors to carpet without having to lift it, which was a big problem with the Allergy model, which sometimes felt like it weighed about a hundred pounds. This vac in comparison is light. I tried NOT to buy it. The price always sends me into fits of doubt and apoplexy. My local **** had a Shark on sale so I bought one, but it lacked umph. Nomatter how I came at my carpet, I never felt the suction grab at the fibers like the Dyson does. You need something with some POW if you're going for serious puppy hair cleanup, and that one just sort of skimmed. It did do the job after about five or six passes, which I really don't need to have to do everytime I want to clean up. It had some tools, like an extra long hose attachment, which I think Dyson could pick up on since everyone else is picking up on the Dyson design. I loved the Shark rolling brush for upholstery, which seemed to do better job than the Animal tool. But none of it was enough to make me stick with it. I missed having a vac that could clean up quickly and really really well. And that's Dyson. So to sum it up, it's light, it's got killer suction and good tools that don't fall off which was a huge problem with my old Allergy. Oh...speaking of tools, your old tools may not fit on this one. Part of that suction thing is that they've modified the width of the tubes, so it's suckier, but your old Dyson tools are going to be too big. I wrote Dyson so we'll see about that. (I miss my wand with an extender) It's got a big pricetag, but if you're a vacuum nut like I am, eventually you see it can't be avoided.Read More
Been thinking about getting a Dyson for some time now since other vacuums seem to be lasting only a year or so with my cat and dog but couldn't bring myself to spend that much money on one. I am so glad I did. Love the self adjusting base plate for different types of floors! Works perfectly going from hardwood to tile to carpets. The extendable handle takes some getting used to but its getting better. Overstock had it at my door in a few days and couldn't be happier with the purchase.Read More
Dyson does it again. I had had earlier models & this one is the most powerful & lightest plus the manueverablitity of the ball into corners & around furniture is awesomeRead More
I have been eyeing a Dyson for years, and when I saw the 'Animal' I couldn't resist. I bought this to replace a perfectly good and quite new vacuum, and the difference is really amazing. It is sleek, spare and simply elegant in design and function. It works! Worth every dollar to me!Read More
The only problem we encountered with this vacuum was putting it together. Why can't they write the instructions? All there was on the assembly instructions was a bunch of pictures. So it took a while to decipher just what the illustrations meant. I guess maybe some people need pictures rather than written, but it was a bit confusing. The vacuum itself is great, picks up tons of hair from our dog and four cats. The carpets definitely are much cleaner now.Read More
