Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by OldretiredGuy Strong Suction
This vacuum is very well built. My personal opinion is that there is not a better made machine made today. Although I have obviously not used every vacuum on the market, I can not imagine there being a better one. You'll have to try one to see what I mean. That's the good news. The only other things I'll say is that it has almost to much suction.. It could pull the threads out of your carpets and it is VERY heavy. I have a smaller Dyson that is much smaller, lighter and much more maneuverable. I got this machine on sale at a significant price reduction. I would not have purchased it at the MSRP. $600.00 Just WAY to much to pay for a vacuum cleaner.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Sam Do Not Buy Dyson
Dyson is a nightmare when it comes to service. The vacuum never worked right, and I have gotten such a run-around from Dyson for three months. Don't buy Dyson. They don't stand in back of their products. If you ever need to fix it (even in the warranty period), they have you ship it back to them, then they send it back to you in the same broken condition claiming it's fixed. A nightmare. Buy anything but Dyson. I think they want you to finally give up getting it fixed. Which is what I finally did. You call their service number and they keep on transferring you around until someone finally hangs up. Like something out of Kafka.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tastg82 DYSON DC65 SUCKS!
We finally replaced our old Hoover wind tunnel self propelled antique. This new Dyson puts Hoover to shame. Easier to use, stronger, more versatile and surprisingly easy to push (being used to the self propelled). Aside from its modern looks, my concern was its somewhat fragile looks with all the plastic. We were wrong, it looks good and works even better. The con(s): THE PRICE, short of the ridiculously high end Filter Queen, $500 is a lot to spend on a sweeper. There is a saying: quality and reliability will always win out over good deals and low prices. Hopefully this is true. So far I am very impressed with Dyson and will continue to drink the kool-aid...

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jfer1021 WOW!
I'm completely impressed with the cleaning power of this vacuum. I have pets and vacuum regularly. I felt I received decent cleaning coverage from my old vacuum but I was wrong. The first use of this machine filled the canister with pet hair. There should not have been that much hair since the last time I vacuumed. The Dyson pulls from deep in the carpet fibers. I could feel and see the difference. I also love the way the vacuum maneuvers with ease. I am so glad I made this investment. You will not regret it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by James007 DC65 Animal Is Great For Capturing Pet Hair
This is a powerful vacuum. We were amazed at how much pet hair was pulled from our floors. One thing that Dyson needs to enhance on this vacuum cleaner is to reinforce the handle. It seems to be made out of very thin plastic and we're afraid that it might break in use. Also the extension hose is not user friendly. You really have to use two hands to use it and it'll give you a workout. The vacuum is pretty heavy also, so it gets cumbersome to pick it up and move it. The price is a little steep at $600+. Other than this, it has the best suction of any vacuum cleaner we've ever owned. It also has a 5 year OEM warranty, so it appears they stand behind their product.

I had an overheating issue when my unit was too full or the brush became clogged. The power shut off and I thought I was in trouble. Customer Service worked with me to solve the motor overheating problem. Great service.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Downtown Super easy vacuum to maintain and use
I have owned this vacuum for over two years. I absolutely love this vacuum. I have two dogs, and it does a wonderful job picking up all the dog hair as well as the fine dust that accumulates from them as well as people. The clear bin is easy to empty into a trash can, and I love how I do not have to buy vacuum bags. In addition, the filters are easily maintained by taking them out every couple months and rinsing them under cold water. I absolutely love the wand attachments as well! Since I have two dogs, the wand attachment that looks like a mini handheld vacuum does wonders for my vehicle! I would highly suggest this vacuum to anyone who has pets and/or wants a nicely cleaned carpet.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Larry99701 Best Vacuum Cleaner I have Owned
This is a great machine. I bought it not only for the superior suction and roll-around ease, but especially because of the auto-adjusting height of the powered brush bar. It goes from hardwood floors to carpeting to rugs without any loss of suction. Try to find that in any other brand of vacuum in this price range. It also picks up dog hair perfectly. I am still amazed at how much dirt this vacuum picks up every time I use it. This machine is absolutely by far the best stand-up vacuum cleaner I have owned. I would buy another in a heartbeat if I needed it. Definitely worth every penny.
