I have purchased many vacuums over the years. I bought a Kirby which I thought with the price it would be my last. "Like that would happen." It broke down 3 months ago and my husband put his foot down and said he wanted me to have a new vacuum. I went on line and did a little research. It came back that dyson had more bang for the buck. My husband said he wanted to see it and hold it before we bought it. A little difficult getting him to go to stores so one evening I decided I would by it on line. I did and I got the eye role from my husband but I hooked it up, charged it and it all went uphill from there. If I want to clean my car I just grab it and go. I can even have it at the car wash when I go. I saw that people thought it didn't stay charged long enough. I'm not obsessed with vacuuming. If I have to vacuum more than 40 minutes then I did something wrong. I give out long before the vacuum does. If I could give this vacuum 10 stars I would. It's perfect. Even emptying it is a breeze. I own a cat and her fur is everywhere. No problem. I have very long hair which always tangled up in the brushes of other vacs which was very time consuming to pull out. By the time I was done I had no ambition to clean. The brushes on the dyson are different. They don't collect the hair. Suction power on this vacuum is incredible. I can also go from one level to another without any trouble. I have braided rugs all over the house. What a pain with other vacs. With the Dyson I can just go along without even having to lift it. Wow. I've praised this vacuum so much, my friends and family are beginning to wonder about me. My car is always clean now. My house hasn't been this clean years. Thank you Dyson. Best *** vacuum I EVER owned.
This vacuum does a good job. However, the hose is way too short. It is literally made for someone who is 5 feet tall. I am 6 feet tall and to be able to use it on the baseboard or floor corners/edges, I have to literally get down on my knees or bend my back to get low enough to reach. This is VERY painful. Gave it 3 stars because if I can't find a longer hose attachment for it, I will probably return it.
