Light weight, Easy to use and amazing suction!March 19, 2017
I received it several days ago. Assembly was very straightforward and took only 4–5 minutes . The manual provided to assemble with pictures were great. Moving the handle from the upright position to the sweeping position is much better than other vacuums. The vacuum extender reaches a full 12 stair steps easily. The design of this vacuum is excellent and light, easy to use, versatile. We liked three in one feature of this vacuum and you can go from carpet to laminate floors with a push of a button. It is amazing how much dander, fur, and other stuff it picks up. It is also more maneuverable and lighter than most vacuums I've used. It may not be lightest vacuum but because of maneuverability due to the ball, it is very easy to use. I have used it to vacuum my carpeted curving stairs, hard wood and tile floors. It works well on all floors without changing any settings for floor types. The convenience of the vacuum hose with attachments also allow me to get into my couch or detail the vertical part of the carpeted stairs. I have used it in multiple places in my home and it worked flawlessly with no issues. The powerful suction pulls the dirt from far places. The canister is transparent and it will reveal how fast it fills. It empties without any need to contact the dust. The simple design of the attachments and detachable hose makes them useful. With low profile attachments, it becomes relatively easy to reach under the sofas and tables. Key features • The Dyson Ball Multi Floor 2 vacuum is light to maneuver and steers easily into difficult places. Instantly change direction with a turn of the wrist. • Powerful suction across all floors - Cleans carpets, wood floors, vinyl and tile. • Self-adjusting cleaner head - Active base plate automatically raises and lowers to seal in suction across all floors. Combined with a powerful motorized brush bar, it deep cleans dirt throughout the home • Instant release wand - Wand and long-reach hose release in one smooth action, so it's easy to clean up high and under furniture. • Radial Root Cyclone™ technology - Captures more microscopic dust than any other's cyclone. • Hygienic bin emptying - Just push the button to release. No need to touch the dirt. • Filter - HEPA Filter Key Specifications • Weight - 15.6 lbs • Suction Power - 245AW • Bin Volume - 0.42 gallons • Cord Length - 31ft • Maximum Reach - 40ft This is one of the best vacuum for all floor types and best vacuum I have ever used.

Great suction but wobbly and hose issues.March 17, 2017
Before receiving this Dyson I had a pretty good vacuum that also ranks high in average customer reviews (made by a company with the name of an ocean fish made famous by a series of movies). In my review I’ll be using some comparison between the two. When I first unboxed the Dyson I noticed the simple directions to assemble the vacuum. They basically use pictures with no text which is fine since it’s just a few pieces to snap together. I looked it over to make sure everything looked ok and disassembled the filter/container area to make sure there was nothing else to take apart before trying it out. As easy as it sounds, the directions seem a little too dumbed down. Before even starting it up I noticed that the build quality seems to be lacking compared to my current vacuum. Lots of moving plastic parts and a somewhat wobbly vacuum that will fall over if not correctly locked into place. It’s wobbly and feels like it could fall with little effort. When I first started vacuuming I noticed that the vacuum is much heavier and harder to move over the carpet than my other vacuum which is self-propelled. I also noticed that it got hot, like it was putting off heat and it had a chemical smell coming from it. I assumed it was from it being new and went ahead and finished vacuuming the floor to notice that there was a tiny clear sand type substance that was all over the ball and bottom of the vacuum. I emptied the container to see more of the tiny clear particles in the container along with dirt, dust, hair and the normal things you get when vacuuming the floor. I figured that since it was my first time using it I would call customer service. Dyson customer service was very helpful in getting the vacuum registered and walking me thru some possible troubleshooting for the vacuum. They said that this is not normal and offered to replace it. This would involve me boxing it back up and shipping it back and waiting a few weeks for a replacement. I decided since it has a 5 year warranty that I would keep it and see if the problem persisted. I’ve vacuumed several times after this incident and have not noticed as much of the clear particles, but there’s still some there. That brings us to the vacuum. It did do an amazing job sucking up dirt and dust off of my floor. We don’t have animals and normally keep a clean house but this thing was doing some serious work. The amount of suction the Dyson had was quite impressive. It cleaned a lot of dust off of my floors that I didn’t think was there. Using the hose is a pain. The hose is very tightly installed in the vacuum and with the amount of suction and the weight and lack of sturdiness from the Dyson it’s almost impossible to remove it while the vacuum is running. It just springs right back into the vacuum, pulls the vacuum towards you or knocks the vacuum over because of the way it’s built. I tried the vacuum on both carpets and hard floors and it did a great job. Did it do better than the much cheaper vacuum that I purchased on sale? It seemed that way. Is it easier to operate than that cheaper vacuum? No. Pros on this vacuum: Suction strength. Wow. Easy cleaning/emptying canister House and air really “feels” cleaner after using Looks cool (C’mon this thing looks like a muscle car) Cons on this vacuum: Price Build quality Design quality (Hose and wobbly upright lock in design) Yes, my house felt cleaner after using the dyson. The vacuum is harder to use and push around than my previous vacuum. So if this is for someone with not a lot of arm strength I’d say you should weigh whether or not the suction power is worth the extra force needed to push it. The hose system is almost unusable unless I’m doing something really wrong. Maybe it will loosen up over time? With it’s current design I feel like it’s unusable on stairs due to the fact that the hose pulls so much on the unit that it is constantly in the way or feels like it’s going to fall. For that reason I’ll be keeping my other vacuum handy at least until the hose loosens up or I figure out a better method. Not sure why Dyson hasn’t worked up a solution for this. Maybe concentrating more on suction power than how it’s used. It’s kind of like having a car with so much torque that it rips the axles off. I’m giving the dyson 3 stars for suction and that it does exactly what it says. I’m deducting 2 stars for the hose being what it is and for the price which is much higher than other comparable vacuums on the market. If I could use this on my stairs without it springing back into my face I’d add another star.

Hi there, this is Krystal with Dyson. Thank you for taking the time to leave a review on the Dyson Ball Multi floor 2. I m pleased to hear that you are satisfied with the amount of suction power this unit provides. With the amount of suction you get from this machine, you may find that it is picking up what your previous vacuum could not, which is why you may be seeing the dust. This will, over time. The same can be said about the hose. With it being new, some parts may be a little stiff.
As for the quality, please rest assured, Dyson machines are made from polycarbonate ABS which is the same material used in riot shields and crash helmets. We subject them to 50,000 hours of testing and 550 individual tests. All of this to ensure they can withstand a lifetime's hard use.
You may view a short video on some of the testing processes here:
We would value the opportunity to address any questions or concerns you have. Please contact us at askdysonUS@dyson.com, include your name and contact information, and we will be glad to assist. We look forward to hearing from you.

This vacuum ROCKS!March 17, 2017
My wife and I thought we were clean people.....were we ever wrong! We have a vacuum that we thought did a decent job. It picked up dirt every time we used it. In comes the Dyson Ball Multi Floor 2 which changed my entire outlook on how clean my house is. Unboxing the vacuum only took a few minutes. Some minor assembly is required. Just snapping pieces together, no putting in screws or using special tools. After putting it together I vacuumed my living room 3 times, and look at the picture to see for yourself the amount of dirt this vacuum picked up! It is light weight, has a small frame, and it turns on a dime! The ball that the vacuum rolls on makes turning corners and dodging objects a breeze! The extendable wand is already attached to a hose, not taking apart any pieces to but it all together. This vacuum effortlessly transitions from carpet to hard floors with the push of a button that turns off the brush roll. The vacuum auto adjusts to the carpet or floor height to keep good suction on the floor. All in all, I should have gotten a Dyson YEARS ago! You will never believe how dirty your carpet really is! Try it, you won't regret it!

AWESOME Vacuum!March 17, 2017
I have tried them all and this is by far the best vacuum I have owned. I started using Dyson starting with their cordless model, but the battery life was mainly for short uses. This is my first corded model. It is well known that Dyson is the standard for vacuums. This model is smaller than the previous MultiFloor vacuum and packs greater suction I believe. Let's get into the real reason why you are reading this review. -= Design and Easy of Use =- 4/5 This vac by Dyson is lightweight and super easy maneuver due to it's ball design. The cleaning head automatically adjusts to the surface it is cleaning... this is COOL! The assembly of the machine (you must assemble the handle & vac head areas) is simple and easy, I didn't need to even look at the diagrams to put it together. It is easy to put together, if I remember correctly it was like 3-4 clicks that's it. My only gripe is the upright "legs" are annoying. Not a fan of the feet that keep it in the upright position. It doesn't really do a good job of supporting its weight. Light pressure to the handle causes it to fall into "vacuum" mode and if you aren't paying attention the handle hits the floor. This vac is super well made and feels very heavy duty, it's definitely a good quality piece of equipment with fewer moving parts to worry about. -= Performance =- 5/5 It's very powerful. I thoroughly enjoy watching dirt fill up the canister left behind from my previous vacuum. The side areas of the vac head works very well, in fact, the best of any vac I've ever used. This vac lifts the nap of our short shag carpet very well as well as low pile, wood and tile floors. This also isn't a super noisy machine. The canister is very easy to pop off and on as well as empty for cleaning. The wand is easy to use, it took awhile to get the hang of disengaging it from the machine without fuss but once I understood how to do it correctly I can now do it without being too clumsy. You are also provided with some basic tools for the wand that make it easy to clean cobwebs, corner, and ceiling areas (with the wand) as well as upholstery and furnishings (without the wand, simply attach your desired tool directly to the hose). I foresee our home remaining cleaner after vacuuming with this Dyson. This machine requires less maintenance than other vacs we own, there are no bags to worry about, and the included filters can be washed (recommended to do this task once a month with regular usage) before they need to be replaced due to wear. -= What I love about this vacuum =- * Super easy to maneuver around corners and difficult to clean areas, this vac swivels much better than any I've ever owned. The cord is extra long to reach more areas of your house. * The suction on this machine is truly amazing! I would say it's the best I've experienced to far. The dirt goes directly into the canister from the head, so you won't find yourself losing suction unless there's a clog somewhere. The dirt isn't forced to wind around all sorts of receptacles (more common in American made uprights) where suction is lost. * Dyson offers a great 5 year limited warranty as long as the machine is treated with care. * This machine is super easy to maintain. AskDyson has videos on YouTube that covers maintenance and general care of this vac and answers basic questions. * I feel this vac is a great investment for the price point. I sincerely doubt you will find a better model from another company for the price. The main points are superb suction, ease of use, and low maintenance costs (no bags or filters to replace each month). If you want more tools, you'll have to spend more (upgrade to the Animal version or shell out cash for each tool). -= What I don't like =- * I cannot lay this vac down to use under the bed or our coffee tables, etc. It's simply too bulky with the ball shape to do this, so furniture must be moved around instead, or the wand must be used, which doesn't get quite as clean as using the vac itself. * The included accessories are adequate, but I would prefer to also have a few more to round out the efficiency of this vac. Additional tools (like the turbine tool for upholstery) are expensive and need to be considered with the price if needed. For example: a flexible crevice tool runs in the $30+ dollar range, mattress tool is $20+, turbine tool $30+ and so on. It really depends upon what your needs are. I like the turbine tool for cleaning our, upholstery, and stairs, so will consider purchasing that first. -= Verdict =- Must buy if you are in search of a new vacuum. Dyson users will probably benefit from waiting until their vacuum breaks because it still works great. Need a vacuum, buy this. Have a Dyson already... wait unless you want one on each floor like me :)

Nice Upgrade from DC-07 AnimalMarch 14, 2017
I've been a loyal Dyson user since my first DC-07 Animal that I got back in 2005. I dropped $500 on a vacuum and thought it was crazy, but after seeing how much more it picked up compared to our old Kenmore vacuum, I was hooked. Our DC-07 is a beast that has served us well over it's 12 years, but with the chance to upgrade to a v2 Ball, we jumped at the chance! I'm glad we did too! Dyson's claim to fame is that the vacuums don't lose suction - and just like the DC-07, I was surprised by how strong the v2 was. I ran a path in our bedroom, which has thick carpet, with the DC-07 and then ran the v2 Ball over the same stretch. Not only did the v2 pick up more debris that the DC-07 left (see screenshot) but it actually took some muscle to maneuver it on the carpet because of how strong the pull of the vacuum was! Like any vacuum, there's some assembly required, but nothing tedious and no tools required. The first thing I noticed was how much smaller in size the vacuum and canister were in the v2 compared to the DC-07. While this may deter some users who don't want to stop more often, I was still able to vacuum the house on a single tank. The v2 also comes with washable filters and a duster, crevice and furniture attachment. Which was nice, since those were really all we used on the DC-07 also. One thing to be aware of - since the v2 Ball puts all the torque at the connection point, it can be harder to maneuver on thicker carpets than a traditional design like the DC-07. The trade off is how much more debris the v2 collects combined with the fact that the default head also doubles as a low-clearance head. Previously, if we wanted to get under the edges of the furniture, we had to use a different head altogether. Dyson products aren't cheap - the v2 was $400, but one piece of advice my mom gave me was not to go cheap on a vacuum. I've been a happy Dyson customer for over 12 years and I expect, with the performance of the v2 Ball, I'll be a happy customer for another 12! Pros ------ Extremely easy to maneuver on solid floors (tile, hardwood, etc) Lighter weight due to newer build than DC-07 Powerful suction from a low-clearance head Cons ------- Ball design can make maneuvering on thick carpet more of a chore Dyson still doesn't use a retractable cord design for power cord Older attachments don't fit - not surprised after 12 years of design innovation Overall ---------- If you're looking for a solid vacuum that is easy to lift, store and use - save your bananas and pony up for a Dyson. The only difference between the v2 Ball and v2 Animal are the attachments you get in the box. We went for the basic figuring we could always get more attachments later if needed.

So Powerful That It Sticks to the CarpetAugust 25, 2017
The first time using it, the brush would not spin because the suction was pulling it too hard toward the floor so it was difficult to push. I contacted support and they had me remove a small rubber gasket to allow additional air flow and (while being recorded) advised this would not void the warranty. After that it worked great picking up more dirt and dog hair in a single run than the previous one did over several uses. Best vacuum I've ever used hands down!!

More than I expectedApril 1, 2017
I live in an old Brooklyn apartment with hard wood floors.. I could sweep and swiffer 20 times a day and still see tons of dirt on my socks. So I decided to look for a vacuum that would do the work I couldn't with a broom. I have always wanted a DYSON but thought they were too pricey. But after months of research, I thought it would be worth the investment. So I purchased this one. It did not disappoint. I could not believe It. Because I swept the floor first. Then vacuumed to see if anything would be left for the vacuum to pick up. I was SHOCKED at how much dirt and dust was in the canister. The only "CON" I have is that it is really noisy and the floor feels like its vibrating. But that's probably just because of the powerful motor. Other than that, it is powerful and does everything it says. I even noticed I am not sneezing as much. So it must really be getting the dust caught in the floor boards that the broom is pushing into that spot. Just buy it..

Improvement on near perfectionMarch 14, 2017
I've owned a Dyson vacuum for several years and have sworn by their vacuums ever since I switched from alternative makes. Their Ball Multi Floor 2 has improved on just about every account. I was able to assemble it fairly quickly with about four main steps once you get it out of the box. You can feel the improvement in the power immediately, however you can hear it as well as it seems to be a bit louder than the prior version. I believe the cleaning power and versatility makes up for the noise. The extension cord is longer than the prior model, long enough to reach most standard room areas without having to search for another outlet which I had to do previously. The attachments fit neatly on the side of the unit without getting in the way and are useful on stairs and other tight or out of reach places. The canister is larger than the previous model and is just as easy to take off and clean. The ball mobility is great when steering the vacuum. This new version also has a button that you can turn the spinning brush off which helps when going over small rugs so they don't get sucked up and roll around the spinning brush. If something catches on the spinning brush, it was as simple as pulling it out after turning the vacuum off and then it was right back up and running after I turned it back on; no need to reset the spinning brush. My only question would be can a vacuum be too powerful? It did leave substantial lines on one of our area rugs that eventually came out with some traffic. It almost felt as if the vacuum suction cupped to the rug itself, which I suppose was the intent to suck out all of the dirt the prior model couldn't get too. I would definitely recommend this to anyone in the market for a vacuum and consider it a long term investment because you won't have to replace it for years assuming you take care of it.
