We have only used it a couple of times....but it does work as advertised and we are glad we have it.....would like to have paid a little less for it...but we are happy with the product.

Would like a better battery life

A broom and a swiffer do a better job.


Dyson needs to go back to the drawing board on this product. For the price, I was very disappointed with the performance of this product. I returned it.This product is or has... CordlessAbout me... Pet owner, everyday user, All about design


The wet part last about 10 seconds and the vacuum part doesn't pick up anything

Dyson is a great product


Got it for a Christmas gift. So far I love my new dyson. I have a bigger dyson but I like this one easy snap apart and it wet mops and vacuums.

Easy to use

Nothing so far

Not good at anything


Looking for an easy way to clean hardwood floors. This isn't it. The "suction" is marginal and the pads don't do much cleaning. It just doesn't work very well. Don't waste your money.This product is or has... Cordless, Easy to emptyAbout me... Teenage...

It is a Dyson. Battery powered

Heavy, awkward, and it doesn't really do much

Consumer review by:

Works great


Works great but like all Dyson products, it is overpriced. Good suction but wet cloths dry out way too fast.This product is or has... No bag, Cordless, Easy to empty, Easy to chargeAbout me... Pet owner, small family

Cordless, bagless

Wet cloths don't stay wet very long

Consumer review by:

It only lasts 6 minutes on a charge.Don't recommen


I just can't believe the battery only lasts 6 minutes. Extremely disappointed.About me... occasional user, Brand conscious, small family

Easy to use

Need more than 6 minutes to clean my floor

Consumer review by:

Don't bother


Great idea, light weight, worked as expected.... for 8-15 minutes at a time. I retuned the unit 2 days after purchasing it. Not worth the money.This product is or has... Cordless, Easy to emptyAbout me... Brand conscious, everyday user, All about design

The idea

15-minute max run time, then has to rest for 5-8 hours before you can use it again

Consumer review by:

Not worth it!!


I purchased this vacuum/cleaner (Dyson DC56) yesterday and decided to try it out today, Thanksgiving. After assembling & the 3.5 hr charge, I read (or looked at the picture examples) the directions. With the attachments on the charging base, it made it...

No cord

All the rest

Does a below average job for a Dyson


I expected more from a Dyson. Pads run dry too soon and animal hair clogs in the vacuum part.This product is or has... Convenient to store, Cordless, Easy to chargeAbout me... Budget Conscious, occasional user, Pet owner, Brand conscious, small family

It's light

Pads don't last long
