      I had an old Dyson that I wanted to replace and tried to find something cheaper or comparable. After a few months of failing to find something else, I came back to Dyson. There is no comparison. I have bad allergies and daughter has asthma. This vacuum sucks up anything you have trapped in your carpets or floors and is truly an edge-to-edge clean. The model is very similar to the animal just doesn't come with all the attachments and I believe the head is slightly different. Imthis vacuum traps dust and small particles very well and don't have any issues of it coming back out the vacuum. Based on research, I tried the Bissell CleanView 9596 and new Hoover React vacuums based on being great for allergy sufferers. The Hoover React was great at trapping allergens and getting dirt. The floor auto sense and the hose with lift away canister is what piqued my interest over getting another Dyson (and it being half the price tags of a new Dyson). The floor auto sense would keep switching back to hard floor even though my whole house is carpet except the kitchen and bathroom. It was a pain and I didn't even take advantage of the Bluetooth app. And the hose and lift away canister was just as bad. The hose does not extend enough for me and the idea of lifting the canister everytime I want to get behind the couch or on top of my tall book shelves was a deal breaker. The Bissell still blew out allergens and I was constantly sneezing and stuffed up while vacuuming - it did great vacuuming though. But they were no match to the Dyson. I tried different ways to match the 3 and each time, Dyson won. The canister is huge. The cord is long. The hose on the Dyson is long and flexible - can reach from ceiling to behind furniture and in between. It even fits all my attachments I've had from the previous Dyson so I saved even more there. When I saw this vacuum for half the price as a deal of the day, I jumped right on and have no regrets! Don't wait or think twice! It's worth the investment and you'll breathe and feel better too! :)

      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. Filtration: 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. Carpet performance 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. Cons: 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.

      This may turn out to be a rather lengthy review as I currently have a Gen1 and Gen2 original Dysons. This is replacing the Gen1 which still works fine but is beginning to see broken edges, clips, etc. WHY I LIKE Dysons - Simple - they just SUCK....dirt, debris... you get the point. Although the Gen1 & 2 were purchased as refurbs they have performed flawlessly. This is my first BALL and first NEW (not refurb) style so I'll try to note the differences along the way. First impressions of the NEW.. it is a little heavier but maybe a little flimsier feeling. I'll try to explain. The original design is more straight forward. Solid agitator connected to motor housing with fairly rigid canister and hose assembly attached to make a solid feeling vacuum assembly. While I personally think the "Ball" is a gimmicky engineering concept it proves to ROLL with less input from the user. Cornering is without question easier than the original units. This "Ball" concept inherently requires other parts to be more flexible so the rolling effect or tracking is accomplished withOUT any rigidity. This is why it has a more flimsy feel. With that being said, materials and actual quality build look top notch. Secondly, going back to why Dysons SUCK, this new unit definitely has more suction than either of the originals had when they were new (refurbs). The agitator on this Ball unit literally feels like it is stuck to the ground while the roller brush is PULLING the vacuum forward. Again, requiring very little input from the user except to steer and again with the ball concept very easily done!! Hope this new unit holds up to the 10 or so years that I've had the Gen1.

      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.

      We had a DC28 Animal prior to this purchase and have enjoyed Dyson products up until this purchase. Within the first 3 times using it at home, there was a terrible burning smell like the motor was burning up. We called service and Dyson said it was normal and it was probably hair that was burning in the bristle brush area. They also said to avoid that smell - keep the brush area cleaned, so we did each and every time we used it afterward. Within the first 3 months of owning this, the entire unit stopped working. Service had us take it to a local repair shop where they had to replace the entire head assembly. This takes about a week to turn-around. I called and expressed my disappointment to Dyson at that time and informed them that I would like it noted that this was not a good start to a $400 vacuum. Fast forward to today (another 3 months of operation). The vacuum has stopped working again. Mind you, we have kept this as clean as possible by cleaning out the brush heads every time. Contacted service and they said to take it in for repair. I spent quite some time explaining to service that I would like a different model than this, I've been a customer for 6 years and have owned 3 different Dyson products. I requested that if they cannot provide a different model, than I would like a refund. I was then told that my 30 day trial period has expired and that there is nothing they can do to assist me but to take it in for warranty repair. I reminded them that I did call within the first 2 weeks to explain there was a burning smell and they never offered me to return it under their trial program. I should have just taken it back to Best Buy. I am extremely disappointed with Dyson and the way they are handling my $400 purchase. I would have expected a better product and especially better service from a company that prides themselves on their products. Because of this - I will NOT be buying a Dyson again and will look to their competitors just as I told the service rep on the phone.

      NOT WORTH THE MONEY!! Won't last long.

      Purchased a band new Dyson DC65 Multi Floor Vacuum on Nov 3, 2015 after using Hoover Vacuum for almost 10 years. I had high expectation from the new Dyson Vacuum DC65 since it was a quite expensive (over $500, x2 more expensive than Hoover) and popular. However, we are so disappointed with the quality, usability, moreover the life of the machine. Here are the reason why: 1) The Vacuum top section (handle and bin) does not stand well and keep falling down. 2) Vacuum bin keeps falling off from the vacuum body at least 2~3 times per vacuuming. 3) Vacuum bin’s top red switch broke after 1.5 year. Although we can still push it by using a pen. 4) Vacuum attachment does not have any suction…..happened TODAY. (a plastic parts was broken - see images) It’s been only 2 years and 5 months since we purchased it and it is already garbage. We have 2.5BR house with about 1700 sqft. Used DC65 just like the old Hoover vacuum machine. The fact is……..the Hoover was 1/2 price and lasted 8 more years than Dyson DC65. Dyson products might look good but the quality and the service sucks. THERE IS REASON WHY DYSON PROVIDES ONLY 6 MONTH WARRANTY!!! It's not worth the money and I do not recommend any of the Dyson products. DO NOT GET FOOLED BY THE PAID REVIEW WRITERS!!! Check other 1 star review.

      After my current vacuum was going to crap, I decided I wanted to get a Dyson. My parents had a Dyson so I was familiar with it and always worked amazingly for me. So I had been looking on various websites, Target, Amazon, etc. a bit out of my price range, but BEST BUY is AMAZING for their deal on this one! I paid $218 total for the vacuum, and best of all? It was FREE shipping to Hawaii!! That’s almost unheard of!! So! I got to use my new Dyson today and in short it’s amazing! It covers a lot more ground than my last vacuum and moves so much more smoothly. My only complaint is that because I have ugly tile floors, I also own several rugs. One of which is a big 8x10 shag rug and this thing requires some real manpower (in my case, woman power ;) ) to get the job done. Definitely a good way to get some of the strength training Lol! And I’m very glad that it actually made my shag rug SO much fluffier, it was beginning to flatten and I was considering buying another new one but I think my new Dyson will allow for a longer lifespan! :) Overall, Definitely recommend this vacuum! Just make sure you can push this sucker on carpet!

      Putting it together I thought it a little clunky and poorly constructed, eventually I got it together and I can say it's definitely not flimsy or poorly constructed. Vacuum head fell off a couple of time during the put together eventually everything came together and no glue require. Got to say it's pretty impressive. Vacuumed with my old, bag, unit and then ran the Dyson. Filled up about half way of the canister with dog air and carpet dust. GREAT SUCTION. So bag vacuum over Dyson - I think I'll give Dyson the thumbs up though emptying canister, definitely cleaner and easier to dump the bag than the dislodge the stuff in the canister and the bag lets me do more area before needed emptying than the Dyson. In my book, for the price point and functionality definitely happy with the Dyson. Withholding judgement on long term reliability - my bag unit has been holding it's own and going strong for almost 10 years, if I get that, or anywhere close to that reliability, from the Dyson, it's going to be my go do cleaner - Definitely NOT disappointed in it's performance. The Dyson is one great vacuum
