    Lousy piece of Junk Dyson should pull this

    • My Best Buy® Elite Plus Member

    Had Purple big ball long time worked great. Part broke so we bought the Nickel one to replace it. Keeps plugging up loses suction. Called Dyson and the rep talked my nontechnical wife through disassembly and told her she has one just like it and jams all of the time. Tech says she dissasembles her all of the time to fix it because it plugs up if you use it more than a couple times without unjamming it.. Dyson said can do nothing to help. Best Buy manager says we had for a while which is too long and Best Buy will do nothing about it.. Customer service rep manger actually laughed at my wife. I went to a replacement part supply on line site and ordered replacement part for our old Purple. It now works as good as new. The Nickel is garbage and Dyson should recall it. We will research every consumer site next time before buying another Dyson The purple is great even though it is older this Nickel model stinks. I would buy a functioning Purple at a rummage sale before buying the Nickel new in the store. Dyson will post some auto response to this and ask you to contact them to hear about your experience. Go ahead we already called they are not going to deal with it and Best Buy is just the vendor so they won't either. We like Best Buy and we like Dyson Purple Ball but the Nickel is junk. You will see most of my reviews are positive to excellent but they earned this one.

    Worst Dyson I have owned

    • My Best Buy® Elite Plus Member

    I have owned about 4 or 5 Dyson's now. They have all worked well except this one. The only reason I buy new ones is because thats what I do. I like the latest and greatest. I'm a technology expert so I'm not your average Joe. I bought this one when it was first released by Best buy. First this thing does not pick up well. I can vacuum the same area 10 times and there will still be stuff to pick up. I dont thinks its the suction, I thinks its the bottom cleaner head and brush mechanism. its supposed to adjust to your carpet height or floor. But I don't thinks it puts enough pressure down to seal in the suction. I think the ball counter acts the presure in the front. I'm not a fan of the ball either. I hate that Dyson has gone that way all together. I wish they made a top regular style model still. Dyson expert: I have read your other responses to other people leaving low ratings. I understand the no filters to clean and never loses suction and the most advanced dyson ever. But none of that matters if it doesn't pick up properly from the cleaner head.

    Dyson Cinetic---Great Vacuum Cleaner

    • Verified Purchaser
    • My Best Buy® Member

    I am truly impressed with the cleaning power this vacuum has. As soon as I received the vacuum I assembled it and put it to work. 1. Assembly only takes a few minutes. The directions were easy to follow--No Tools Required!! 2. I have used the vacuum on carpet and on hardwood. The self adjusting vacuum head makes any floor type a breeze to clean. The vacuum also has an option to turn off the agitator which is great for cleaning hard floors. Another feature that I like is the housing that holds the agitator is clear, so you can see the dirt and debris as the vacuum sucks it up. 3. I was amazed at how much dirt and debris was in the canister after just having vacuumed the floor---I wanted to see how good this vacuum really was and I was impressed with the results.--The suction and cleaning power is great!! 4. The big ball technology makes the vacuum easy to maneuver and the design of the agitator head also allows you to clean in some tighter spaces that my old vacuum couldn't reach. 5. Not having to clean the filters is another plus. I would definitely recommend this vacuum to a friend. The technology and cleaning power makes the vacuum a must have.

    It SUCKS!!!

    • Verified Purchaser
    • My Best Buy® Elite Member

    I have gone through several cheaper vacuums over the past few years trying to save some money. I finally, bit the bullet and paid for a Dyson. Though I was leary in the beginning, I must say, YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR! This vacuum is worth every penny. I used my old one first and then went over my floors again with the Dyson. I couldn't believe how much more "stuff" came out of my carpet. Wish I had bought this sooner. It really SUCKS! I have 2 dogs and it gets all the hair up. You won't be disappointed. 5 yr warranty, just another bonus. On a side note, if you have back issues like myself, this is much easier to push!

    Worst one


    I purchased this amoung many others never had a problem. I have a piece missing off the top of the canister like the canister cracked I did not drop it. Called dyson they will not cover it. The customer service was rude and dyson warranty has changed. I will never buy another for the price and it just broke after 3 months of using it?

    best vacuum ever!

    • Verified Purchaser
    • My Best Buy® Member

    This vacuum is a dream come true. First time I used it I thought my carpets were pretty clean. Wrong! This vacuum picked up so much more dirt than my old one (a Hoover) that is only 3 years old. My carpets look more plush and much cleaner. Definitely worth the price!

    Wow!! Worth the investment.


    This thing just made me puke, literally the stuff it pulled up from my throw rug alone was amazing. We vacuum multiple times a week with an older vacuum, big mistake. This thing is very pricey, but you get a 5 year warranty with it-----don't view it as an expense, view it as a home improvement investment. Not to mention, if you have allergies you won't find a better vacuum to help alleviate those symptoms.

    Bigger, better (if possible) Dyson

    • Verified Purchaser
    • My Best Buy® Elite Plus Member

    The motor is bigger and more powerful. It is a standard Dyson, but better. The only downfall is that it is bigger and slightly heavier, but that is to be expected with a bigger motor. It comes with a ton of attachments and a nice tote to store them in. I never thought I would ever in my life pay that much for a vaccum, but I am glad I did!
