It sucks, it pulls out dust, pet hair, everything. Vaccuum your house with your current vaccuum and THEN with this! You'll get buckets of dust and hair you didn't know was still in there! Saved us from buying two new rugs already

Can't think of any.. wasn't free

Our first Dyson...


I went to a local store to look at the Dyson vacuums. This one caught my eye for my parents since I thought the ball vacuum would be a little harder for them to maneuver. The store was asking the original $449. They price-matched, but not to websites...

great suction, easy to clean, easy to maneuver, picks up the dust and dirt you never notice, brush does good job in lifting the carpet, easy roller shut-off button for vacuuming hardwoods/tile/vinyl, great for all-floors, hose is nice and long

removing the vacuum hose is slightly annoying but not unbearable

Best for an animal lover


My wife and I have an assortment of dogs and cats. This vacuum has picked up hair and kept our house totally clean. I urge anyone who has pets be it one or many to consider this vacuum you will NOT be sorry. Plus the attachments they offer are awsome....

The Dyson Animal Changed Our Lives


The Dyson was the best investment we've ever made. I thought our house was clean before. After seeing the volume of dirt and hair that the Dyson removes, I can't believe I thought our house was clean! Its easy to carry around, all the parts are secure...
