Pretty Good vacuum but the head leaves quite a bit to be desired

Summary: This vacuum overall is great. Its not very heavy and in my opinion has done a better job than my past uprights that i've bought at Sears(Not too fair of a comparison being on my past 2 vaccums i've only spent around $75-80 + extended warranty).
Summary: The Dyson works well when it is running, but the power head has failed within 12 months of use; and that with only one carpet to clean! When it is being used the wand design feels cumbersome, a little difficult to control for someone of slight build.
Summary: I gave my old Dyson to my kids and got this model for my place that is all tile. It does the excellent job I expected it to do. The head & wand is a great design. Turning the brush on/off works so easy. I would give it 4.5 stars if I could, the 1/2 star ding is because the hose is a bit to short,
Excerpt: Very lightweight and powerful vacuum.ManeuverabilityVery easy to move across carpet or hardwood.Ease of MaintenanceIt is a little messy to empty as most bagless vacuums are as well.Suction PerformanceAmazing suction from a small vacuum.
Summary: My husband and I were skeptical about spending $300+ on a vacuum, but we're so glad we read the reviews and took the leap. We have three cats, one is a long hair. My old upright just moved the dirt from one place to another. The first time I used my new Dyson I had to empty the bin three times!
