Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by EJU57 Great Smaller Dyson
Love it, purchased it for our summer place at the lake. Being a smaller model easy to store with the limited amount of space we have and still has all the power to clean perfectly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by djj53 puts the fun into vacuuming
I have had this machine for 3 years and still love it!! It is super easy to use and does a fabulous job. I have recommended to my friends and 2 of them bought this dyson. They love it too. I used to hate vacuuming now I love it:)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DesertSnow This is the Rolls Royce of vacuums!
I love my new Dyson!!! I cannot believe how light it is, and the maneuverability. It is amazing. And the suction is great...I filled the canister in just one cleaning of my town-home. My only complaint isthat it is a little difficult to clean stairs with the attachment....I think I need to purchase some more tools to make that easier. Also, I had a little problem putting it together, but we looked on youtube and found a video that really helped. Sometimes you just need to see something done rather than read instructions and diagrams. But overall....I'm happy with my purchase and highly recommend it to others. Well worth the extra cost.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chopper Dyson DC40 vs. Shark Rotator Pro Lift Away
Both the Dyson and Shark are made of plastic. The plastic on the Shark seems a little cheap and non durable. The plastic flexes in certain spots.
Both are well thought out and designed well from a user stand point.
Both canisters can be emptied easily without a dusty mess.
The Shark is heavier than the Dyson and feels heavier when vacuuming.
The Dyson maneuvers better than the Shark.
The Shark vacuums more quiet than the Dyson.
The Dyson puts out less (almost none) vacuuming smell than the Shark.
The vacuum test. The Dyson is very expensive and is suppose to be one of the best. I vacuumed a 30" x 40" sample test rug with medium thickness with the Shark first, then I went over the same rug with the Dyson. Both vacuum canisters were empty at the beginning of the test.
The Dyson vacuumed the same rug right after vacuuming with the Shark and was able to pick up about 3 table spoons more dust.
The same test was repeated again with the same results. Remember this is only a 30" x 40" small rug.
But, the Dyson DC40 is over twice the price of the Shark. I was able to get the DC40 at $130 off on sale and it came with the small vacuum brush and other attachments.
Note: The test rug did look clean after vacuuming with the Shark. Then again the Shark can go on sale and the price is more attractive.

This vacuum is pretty quiet & sucks up more dirt than our old vacuum. It's manuevering is Amazing! My wife in I argue over who gets to vacuum the house. We both never thought that would ever happen. :)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MoneyPit Outstanding performance makes the price livable
Within about 15 minutes of opening the box the machine was assembled (just click 5 pieces together per the very clear step diagram) and I was vacuuming a spare room that desperately needed it. At first the action was so smooth I thought I had it set wrong, but the unit self-levels to the floor and there is no setting... it works that well and is that effortless to work over a loose pile carpet. Yes it is a pricey product. I was lucky and got it at 20% off. Even at that its a substantial purchase. Nonetheless if it can make vacuuming this easy, its worth it in effort saved over the life of the unit.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Consumer Excellent Vacuum
It was time for me to replace my vacuum, We heard a few things on the dyson so I thought I would go check it out. The store person was very knowledge about it, because he owned one. He had all good things to say. So we went with his recommendation. It has now been 4-5 months and I am totally impressed with this vacuum. I must admit I was not sure on the whole ball thing, But I am sold on this design. Everything is well designed from how it all comes apart to empting the canister. The cleaning power is good, it's light and easy to use. I am now a dyson fan. It is a little pricey but we were lucky, at the time we were looking it was on sale for $130 off.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by WillE Cleans well, Easy to move.
Cleans well, Easy to carry and move. It is nice that you don't have to change any parts between hard floor and carpet. Easy to empty. I worry about the plastic parts breaking over time maybe they won't. If you are a stickler for perfect vacuum marks on your carpet, you may be frustrated by the lines the ball leaves.
