I wanted a vac that wouldn't break the bank, but was also a step up from my inexpensive canister vac. It had to be relatively light, quiet, with a long wand and a wide bare floor attachment. Most of my home is hardwood, with many throw rugs, and we have 2 cats. This vacuum is exactly what I wanted! The wide hard floor brush works flawlessly...maneuvers around furniture legs and picks up everything from fur to little pieces of whatever. The wand extends long enough that I am no longer stooping over to vacuum. The motor "purrs". The cord retracts ALL the way in. It isn't the lightest vacuum on the market but it is light and is easy enough to carry up and down the stairs. And the hard floor attachment allows me to vacuum all our throw rugs. The one thing I don't like is that it requires bags, but then again, dumping the plastic canister from the old vac into my trashcan was not always pleasant so I can deal with buying bags. I am very pleased with this purchase.
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.
Quiet Vacuum with nice features. Like the fact that the brush head has easy access to clean brush. Works great on hard floors and throw rugs. We do not have carpeting so I cannot comment on that, but so far I am very pleased with this vacuum.
