Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mandy Love my Dyson!!
I did my research before purchasing this one - even looking for a used one on Craigs List (they were all $150 and more). This one is just perfect! It arrived very quickly & was easy to put together. I vacuumed my entire house and could not believe the dirt it picked up - especially on the rugs & carpets!! (I had already vacuumed the day before with my hoover windtunnel). I like that it is fairly lightweight & therefore easier to carry upstairs. Easy to use & easy to empty. Go ahead & order one - you won't be disappointed. The only negative comment I could make is that the cord could be longer.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by VolunteerOfTheYear Happy with product, many improvements over previous, and performance is unparalleled
Like: lightweight efficient packaging, easy and intuitive to assemble; I pre-read reviews complaining about "cheap plastic" but was armed with the knowledge that parts are made from polypropylene reinforced with 20% glass fibres and high-impact PC-ABS. Using these materials means greater strength from less plastic – so the machine is lightweight - love that!
Also like: design improvements from my last machine including easier access to clean the bar brush and longer more durable cord, cord head is weightier so it doesn't fall out of the socket - THANK YOU!
LOVE: the suction and performance; I have 2 golden retrievers and this vacuum picked up better than my previous animal model, no clogging, no bar brush problems, just 3 full canisters of golden hair and dirt with no exhaust or filtration issues, just clean carpets and clean air
Dislike: the non-lingual pictorial instructions - it's like playing charades by yourself - when it's time to clean the filter I'll have to go online and find some videos

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Stayathomemom I look forward to vacuuming now!
After owning a Eureka for 7 years and having to change the belt every other month, I finally sprang for this Dyson. I LOVE it. Our carpets are over 10 years old and our couches are 4 years old...the same age as our child. Needless to say, Pringles crumbs, mud, and weird looking bugs are no match for th uhh s vacuum! Our carpets look New and have that lush squishy feeling again! The suction on it is an amazing and I can clean all types of floor with it! Since we have ceramic tile and laminate wood as well as carpet, this vacuum saves me so much time! No more sweeping the dust mopping! Just a once over with the Dyson and I'm done! Most amazing vacuum ever!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Waikoloafamily Love it!
This Dyson finally became ours when our other vacuum died. Easy to put together and use. It picks up so much dog hair, dust and dirt and is easy and lightweight to maneuver.
Is it possible to be excited over a machine?
If it's a Dyson!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SC54151 Price was right for a Dyson
We were always skeptical about purchasing a Dyson. Didn't think they would be all that much better than less pricey brands. HD had this one at the right price so we decided to take the plunge. The assembly directions are all pictorial and were a little confusing at first. Once together, we thought we would do a test. We vacuumed the living room with our old "pet vacuum" vacuum first, then followed up with the Dyson. It picked up an amazing amount of dog hair. We own a Jack Russell and she sheds all year around. Time will tell if it can keep up that kind of performance, but so far so good. It is also easier to transport up and down stairs. It is not light, but the balance is pretty good when it is picked up by the handle. Also like the warranty, but hopefully won't need it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Best Vacuum Value For Your Dollar!!!
My new Dyson DC40 has exceeded all expectations and is the ultimate pet owner's dream machine! It's super powerful, lightweight and easy to maneuver over carpet, ceramic tile and hard wood floors. We have dogs and cats that shed year round and the DC40 cleans down deep to pick up all the hair and dander that gets embedded in the rugs and upholstery. The compact bin may look small but it holds plenty of refuse and empties easily with the touch of a hand. The combination brush and crevice tool takes a bit of getting used to and the bristles are a bit soft but it does a great job on fine furniture. It is such an improvement over the original "Animal". It's also well priced and very affordable !!! I would recommend this vacuum to anyone!!

I bought my Dyson about 2 months ago and I absolutely love it. I couldn't believe how much my old vacuum left behind. A BIG thank you.

We have always had a Different vacuum and thought it was doing a good job. We bought this Dyson and OMG, it truly out performed our unit. We would highly recommend this to anyone.
