Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 997 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 My first Dyson I just bought my second Dyson. After having this one for 5 years, it finally died. And to no fault of Dyson. It was the best vacuum I have ever had and I will miss it. Dyson was wonderful throughout the years in sending me a few parts and always helpful if I got something jammed in there. I loved this vacuum. I always knew my house was truly clean of all dirt and hair. I truly loved it. It made my days happy after using. Sounds crazy, but to know your floors and rugs are fresh and clean....yay. So now, I have just purchased a new one and I love it already. It is a bit different and strange to maneuver, but it gets the job done better than ever. Thank you Dyson for making the best vacuums!!! April 22, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Great Vac and You will Love It What a tool!! It has exceeded my expectation. And I thought that the regular animal Dyson, which I have had for years, was the bees knees. This is a terrific vacuum. It is light weight (approx. 4 lbs.) making it so easy to handle. I had a total knee replacement recently and have been thinking about getting this model since the other model is so hard to maneuver in my condition. What a dream. It is easy to assemble (It took me less than 5 minutes.) The DC 17 comes partially charged up so I was able to vacuum my kitchen and foyer and start on my rugs practically right out of the box. It cleans as well as any vacuum with a cord. I can't wait until it finishes charging so that I can do the rest of the house so quickly and easily. I love it and my knee hardly felt any wear and tear at all. April 17, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DC17 Animal The machine is a workhorse. Its cleaning abilities & maintenance factors are fantastic. I have to give the Dyson customer service an A+ grade. April 21, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DC 17 Animal This is my oldest and most favorite machine. I have 5 dysons and I love them. This one is my favorite and oldest and works great. Love dyson wish they still made this one April 17, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by best vacuum I've ever owned We "splurged" in 2011 on a Dyson DC17 animal. It is now 2015, and we are upgrading. Best vacuum I've ever owned. The Dyson support team has always been friendly, helpful, and the response time for parts orders is excellent. April 15, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Very disappointed in this vaccumm I bought this after my last dyson finally stopped after 10 years. This model is flimsy and was broken after the first two weeks. I have very long hair, and my hair always ends up in the vaccumms. The roller bar on the front of the vac stopped working after two uses, and after two weeks the device lost suction. This is not a full size vac. The dirt canister is tiny and needs to be emptied often. The cord is short and the wand is awkward. This is the worst vac I have ever owned. Home Depot took it back, because they are awesome, but this vac is horrible. December 16, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Overall: Excellent (See Comments) PROS: 1) The SIZE and WEIGHT are very convenient. 2) SUCTION is excellent; the machine does a great job of getting ground-in (as fine as powder) dirt out of rugs. 3) The FILTERS seem to help remove very small particles from the air. 4) The OVERALL DESIGN and CONSTRUCTION are amazing. CONS: 1) The CORD is TOO SHORT (it is only 20" and it needs to be 35' as is the case with the larger Dyson vacuums) 2) The INSTRUCTIONS are TERRIBLE. Surely something that costs this much and has this kind of technology behind it can have a decent set of instructions. There are no written instructions--just line drawings that, in some cases, are difficult to decipher. 3) The WASTE COLLECTION CONTAINER is POORLY DESIGNED. If one is not very careful, one can dump the contents of the waste container while in the process of trying to remove the container from the machine. A short downward push on the release button allows the container to disengage; a stronger downward push on the same button opens the bottom of the container and allows the waste to spill out onto the machine and the floor/carpet. 4) Be aware that the design of this machine will not allow it to go UNDERNEATH BEDS, unless they are raised rather high off the floor.
