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 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.

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 2.0 out of 5.0 by SPR22 Not near the vacume I assumed itwould be.
I bought this vacume about two years ago, hoping for a great exp.I got it out of the box and realized the quality was not near what you would think.The first thing that went wrong was it lost the great suction very fast.To keep suction up I would empty it after every two rooms. After a couple of months it did not regain its original suction and yes, I did clean and wash filters as instructions said. Next the left side of the steering ball broke off. Now the brush has stopped rotating. I did not keep up with the receipt so I am chaulking thus up to a lesson learned.Oh, I am back to using my $39.00 dirt devil. I hope this review makes the list, but I wouldn't be surprized if it doesnt.
I know its my fault that I did not keep up with the receipt. And I should have returned it very soon after the purchase.So , now I'm just taking the hit for my mistake, but, I thought I would pass the bad quality expiriance to the next crust. I am still using my 35.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MDP1 Overall I like it
Overall I like it, however, having used a regular vacuum for years, I feel this one, with the pivot ball, takes getting used to maneuvering it. I also feel the upright "lock" mechanism is not very sturdy. As far as the suction goes, it's better than all Bissel and Hoovers I've had over the years. I have dogs and this one picks up the hair better than the others.
