Summary: Friends and family highly recommended a Dyson vacuum. We have a small home, mostly hard wood floors, small carpeted areas. Overall performance is not what I expected from a Dyson. Difficult to push over short pile carpet. Brush does not pull pile up as expected. Dyson replaced a 7 year old Bissell upright. Is much easier to clean and is light weight.
Summary: Assembly instructions leave a lot to be desired. This is due to the tight tolerances of fitting the hose into the unit and also the hose clamp/guide to the unit. The pictures showing what goes where need written advice. The unit performs well as advertised.
Summary: highly recommended.. even though the price is quite high, i rekon it is worth every cent. such a thorough clean and so easy to use. still cannot believe what it picks up - my old vacuum was nothing like it.
Summary: the box was delivered in a very bad shape, all soaked in rain, torn apart, and open. Luckly, major parts inside box were covered in plastic bags, so seemed intact. assembly was easy. tested right away. very powerful, cleaned good on hardwood, tile and short piled carpet. but couldn't clean soft rug and play mat because the vacuum wouldn't move, just stuck on one spot. had to use my old upright vacuum for thoese area. it also took a lot of strength to use it.
Summary: It is light weight and easy to maneuver. It has great power and moves easily about. My floors look great and feel so clean in my bare feet. It can get into tight spaces and is fast -it cut my cleaning time almost in half. The only problem I had was lack of direction in how to change wand positions and how to put it together. It looked right but the pieces fit in tight, I thought I was wrong, but I was not.
Summary: This is by far the BEST vacuum cleaner in the world. I had tried all th other 'top' brands over the years. I would get a few years out of each vacuum cleaner before it would lose suction. My Brother bought a yellow Dyson machine around 8 yrs ago now. He used to swear by it. I wouldn't take much notice of him when he talked about it.
