I like this vac, but I'm still not 100% sold on it. My old Dyson DC-14 of about 10 years finally died on me, so I decided to replace it with another. I was pretty excited to see what had changed in the last 10 years, but I'm not sure everything was for the better.
Pros: I like the low profile head on this vacuum as compared to the older models, it can get under stuff easily like my couch. I also like the ball, (although it takes a little getting used to), it turns on a dime. There's also no complaining about the suction power of this Dyson, it is a beast at what it does. I use it on carpet and tile, the self leveling head is nice for going from one to the other and back again.
Cons: I absolutely hate the attachment hose. The hose on my old Dyson ripped open after a while and I get the feeling this will eventually too. I also hate having to push a button to extend and put back the extension wand, as well as doing the same when having to put on an attachment. To me it just seems overly complicated and it's a bit of a time waster when I only want to use it for a quick second. Another thing that drives me nuts is that sometimes the canister just falls off. This would happen to my old Dyson as well, I have no idea why this is so. Finally, when vacuuming and putting the unit back into an upright position, sometimes it doesn't take on the first try. You're supposed to push it forward until it clicks, but a lot of times it doesn't stay and it'll be interesting to see how that holds up over time.
Overall it's a great vac, it just has a few annoyances that get under my skin.

So this is my first time buying a dyson vacuum and i must say i love it and i've only had it for one day. i used it the first day i brought it home and i was shocked to see how much my previous vacuum was leaving behind. i vacuumed my floors 3 times and every time it was sure to pick up dust. i never thought of getting a dyson before because to be honest i am a little cheap and this vacuum wasnt in that category for me. My husband works in cleaning and he was the one who actually convinced me into getting it. When we were at the store i was still browsing around other brands and thankfully was able to try a bissell and a dyson . After seeing that the bissell couldn't even pick up some staples that were on the floor and the dyson did i was sold. DYSON IT WAS. So far no regrets in paying a few dollars more to ensure a cleaner carpet.

Dyson or bust!
Posted by: corthilt from: GR, MI on
You're currently reviewing this product because it's quite pricey and you need to be certain you're making a worthwhile investment. I did the same thing. For months. Finally I gave up on my hand me down vacuum that I'm not even sure if it vacuumed. I bought this Dyson and I love to vacuum now. It's disgusting to see how much the Dyson picks up on your first vacuum that your previous vacuum didn't. I will never not own a Dyson moving forward. I just recommend waiting for it to go on sale if possible. I think that's what took me so long to purchase. I finally got it for $100 off and that was enough for me. Buy this. Your carpet will thank you! ;)

We have had many vacuum cleaners. We spent over $1000 on our last one. When it broke we tried the Dyson. Amazing. Easy to handle, easy to clean. No filters needed. Light weight, convenient implements.
Dyson has our vote. Best $300 we ever spent. It makes vacuuming almost seem like fun.

Good bang for the buck

After years of several cheaper vacuums, we finally took the plunge and bought a Dyson. The cost was a concern but honestly the performance has more than matched the price.

Great vacuum but....
Posted by: Bonnie from: on
After looking at these for years, I purchased one for my in-laws. The vacuum is fantastic as far as picking up a messy floor or carpet. My issue that I'm not thrilled with is that it truly is made with flimsy plastic for pieces that you'd use each time you empty the machine. I'd read it before purchasing but thought for this kind of money, I doubt that's the case. I was incorrect. It can be broken so easily. I'm worried with the poor eyesight of my in-laws, these parts may indeed be snapped plastic soon. In addition, it's a little clunky for an elderly person to use. (talking 70's and 80's) I love the ball and how it maneuvers everywhere but for an older person, it would be nice if it had a little better balance to it. That being said, I would truly purchase one for myself and plan to as soon as I have the cash. It does a wonderful job but I think it's like a princess and you need to use some kid gloves with it.

The absolute best vacuum ever!
Posted by: Gina from: on
For years I heard about the Dyson vacuums and stayed with the so called top other brands. Finally I gave in and bought a Dyson. It only took a few minutes to wonder why I hadn't bought one earlier. It immediately became apparent with putting it together - so simple - they even thought of that - then when I vacuumed my so called clean floor, I was amazed at how much my new Dyson picked up. It moves around so easily and everywhere. Dyson is the absolute best & greatest!

Dyson has Finally done it.
Posted by: zina from: on
Dyson. One man, with a dream, to completely revolutionize the Vacuum industry. His company had on main slogan. Fix the problems the others seem to ignore. Now this hadn't always meant they did so. Many times they made there own problems. Many years of vacuum cleaners that seemed to only preform so-so. But now, all the pieces have come together. This new Dyson ball multifloor vacuum has everything necessary to make a great vacuum .
Materials and Build quality;
At first, this vacuum seamed very cheap. All the plastics creaked and flexed to much. But i later learned that was all part of the design. The Vacuum is made out of the same material that riot shields are made of. Plus a 5 year warranty on all parts is a huge bonus.
Suction and airflow:
With no bag to restrict air moment this vacuum really sucks. ( in a good way). An abundance of airflow truly can clean up any mess. Throughly cleaning carpets like the machines of the 50s and 60.
After using this machine for a month now, the pre motor filter is spotless. Almost all the dust is captured by this vacuum cleaners excellent cyclonic technology. And a HEPA post motor filter means the air that comes out of the machine is pure and fresh. Perfect for homes with pets or people with allergies.
Dysons have always had awful brush rolls. Cheap plastic brushes that barely did a thing. Now however, this vacuum agitates the carpet violently. Thats a good thing for getting all that dirt and grit that you may not see. Don't be surprised if this bin fills up quick the first time you use it.
No hight adjustment
No suction control
some awkward to use attachments.
Conclusion; Overall , this is one of the best , if not the best vacuum on the market today. DONT PICK THE HIGHER TRIM ANIMAL VACUUM UNLESS YOU NEED THE EXTRA TOOLS. THE VACUUMS OTHER THAN A PURPLE COLOR ARE THE SAME.

Dyson makes a great vacuum, this one's heavy
Posted by: UnhappyInker from: on
This is our second Dyson, and our first Dyson Ball. I loved our first one, but after my husband took it apart to clean it, it was never the same. We finally bit the bullet and bought a new ball version. The suction, of course, is amazing. The vacuum is a little heavier than our previous Dyson, and it takes some getting used to in order to maneuver it with the ball feature. Overall we are happy with this, but for someone with little upper body strength it would be a problem.
