This product comes with 3 wipes in the package to start with. It reaches well under my furniture and is pretty to looking too.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by ar23 This is not the product we expected from Dyson
We have bought a Dyson vacuum cleaner about 4 years ago and we love it. Because of that we bought this handheld vacuum from Dyson. The picture is not compatible with the machine we have. We feel that the suction level is not as strong as we expect from a Dyson product. It is easy to use and light in weight. A simple, easy design that we like. However, we bought it in May of this year and it went out for a couple of weeks. I left it to recharge for a while and now it works. But I would recommend other Dyson products that are great. Kind of disappointed.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer Powerful for handheld
Great product for handheld. Depending on soil level, may have to recharge after vacuuming 6 steps at max power. Does not include long handle as pictured. Also wife wishes it had an auto "on" button rather than having to keep button pressed to operate as her hand gets tired and achy after a few minutes. Good suction power and good for quick clean-ups or light jobs that can be done in a few minutes before battery needs recharging. Also may be somewhat overpriced for functionality but Dyson construction is very sturdy compared to other brands. Longer battery life would have made it perfect.

I wished I had noticed the on / off button had to be held down and not with a switch. It is painful for my finger as it tires easily and my arthritis. I have heard this from others as well.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ryjpal Perfect toy for the clean freaks
I have the DC41 Animal - which I love, but sometimes I don't want to lug it out for small tasks and the new DC56 is perfect for this! It has a great battery life and works amazing for hard floors.
What I also found, is if I don't need to mop, the Swiffer dry cloths fit perfect too, so sometimes I can just sweep and dust!
I do notice that sometimes the crevices in the mop head get a little gunked but just take the DC41 hose and clean them out.
It's also an amazing hand held vacuum, great for stairs, ceiling fans and tight corners. I love using this in the morning, running errands and when I'm back it's fully charged and ready for more touch ups!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Abuelito Disappointed
We had a Dyson upright vacuum that we have loved - especially the warranty service. So I was eager to try to the tool to substitute for frequent mopping. I was disappointed in this product. The sheets for the wet mop didn't stay moist even for a single use. I had to carry around a spray bottle of water to keep it moist & supple. I no longer even try to use the mop capability. We use it as an expensive hand vac.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by theriggsy13 Great vacuum, Ok Mop
This was our first Dyson cordless vacuum. Here are some thoughts, both good and bad about the Dyson Hard.
- Great for a quick cleanup on hardwood floors.
- Great as a cordless vacuum. We love that the mop portion detaches and that it comes with standard vacuum tools.
Not so good:
- In our opinion, this doesn't replace something that deep cleans wood floors. It does what it says: wipes up grime.
- We wish that you didn't have to keep pressing the trigger. A double-tap, stay on feature would be a welcome addition.
Bottom Line: If you're thinking of buying a cordless Dyson vacuum and you have hardwood floors, buy it.

I received my complimentary Dyson Hard DC56 a couple of weeks before you could buy. I would and do highly recommend this machine. I use in in my kitchen and bath. It dose a great job of picking up the dirt and hair and leaves behind a nice clean floor. I have 2 long hair Chihuahuas that lose a lot of hair and the Hard saves me a lot of time cleaning up. The only drawback that I find is that you have to hold the on switch on all the time. I also like the 2 other tools that come with it. They are great for running over furniture or cleaning out the car. I also own the DC17 animal. I've had it for 6 years and still love it.
