Love my new dyson. Picks up all the dog hair on first pass. Only complaint is the canister could be larger. I love this vacuum. I can over look this detail because it is perfect for my needs.

Excellent vacuum
5 Star Review   By JDWF on Home Depot - May 28, 2013   

The Dyson vacuum was picking up dirt from where I had just used our old vacuum. And not just a little dirt, but quite a lot more. Easy to handle. Lightweight. Powerful.

Great Vacuum
4 Star Review   Home Depot   

Very light weight and does a great job. Not too loud but my dog still barks at it. The only thing I don't like is the cord should be longer and the hose attachment isn't very long for getting cob webs on the celing corners. Other than that it's a cute very good working vacuum.

4 Star Review   By Cindy on Home Depot - Apr 29, 2013   

Don't let the size of this machine fool you....it's awesome! I have gone through a series of Dyson-wannabes and they all were horrible! And very expensive to change filters and parts. This machine has washable filters, easy to empty and works like a BIG machine! I love it..... even the high price was worth it! I guess you get what you pay for!

5 Star Review   By Gooch on Home Depot - Jan 22, 2013   

After reading many reviews and hearing that the cord is short, but, the overall performance is outstanding, I agree 100%. However, the short cord does not have a negative impact on me whatsoever as I have a habit of simply plugging the item in whatever room I am currently working on (so i don't get tangled or trip over it...LOL).

4 Star Review   By Spirit1958 on Home Depot - Jan 22, 2013   

So far I like it, but I have only used it for a month. It picks up small pieces of wood around the fireplace really easy. You will need to read the directions to figure out how to use the wand but other than that i like the ease of vacuuming with it.

Good Vacuum, but smaller than expected.
4 Star Review   By Marcia on Home Depot - Jan 14, 2013   

I have owened a Dyson prior to this one that I purchased. It works well, however, I was disappointed on the size of this model. It is a much smaller unit than the ones you see in the store, It would be good for someone that finds the larger ones to be a bit to heavy for them. Shame on me for just looking at the picture. Fortunately, the area I am using this one for is a smaller one. The holding tank is small and needs to be emptied every time you vacuum. I still love Dysons, but truly this vacuum for it's size was overpriced. I would only recommend this vacuum if you can get it for a lesser price, for a small area or needing something lightweight yet powerful.

Great for pet owners, love the vacuum, some cons though.
4 Star Review   By Vacuumbuyer on Home Depot - Dec 18, 2012   

Pros: 1. We purchased this vacuum to eliminate pet dander odor since it's bagless. Definitely recommend this vacuum to pet owners in that regard. Great creative design and intentions like collapsible and on board hose etc. 2. Seems to collect significant amount of debris from carpet. 3. Easy quick-release, convenient discard of collected debris. 4. washable filter Cons: 1. cord too short 2. hose length short 3. poor function(step to release) from upright to vacuum position 4. no self propel 5. no light

5 Star Review   By msfromab on Home Depot - Dec 18, 2012   

Although vacuuming is not my favorite thing to do, it was almost effortless with the Dyson DC24 animal bag-less upright. I have short hair dogs, and this vacuum just sucked up those hairs with ease. It was also really easy to maneuver under furniture.

Very disappointed in this vaccumm
1 Star Review   By skiperbe on Home Depot - Dec 16, 2012   

I bought this after my last dyson finally stopped after 10 years. This model is flimsy and was broken after the first two weeks. I have very long hair, and my hair always ends up in the vaccumms. The roller bar on the front of the vac stopped working after two uses, and after two weeks the device lost suction. This is not a full size vac. The dirt canister is tiny and needs to be emptied often. The cord is short and the wand is awkward. This is the worst vac I have ever owned. Home Depot took it back, because they are awesome, but this vac is horrible.

Great pricing at the Home Depot
5 Star Review   By theresa1121 on Home Depot - Dec 12, 2012   

This is the second Dyson Animal I have purchased from Home Depot since last year. This purchase is a Christmas gift and a surprise and I know the recipient will be thrilled to recieve this. It was made affordable by the Home Depot pricing, not the first place one would think to shop for a vacuum. It is heavy but you would never know it when pushing it as with the ball technology you really only turn your wrist to direct the vacuum. I am amazed each time I use it and wonder where all the dirt comes from. So HD is not just for building supplies and hardware. Check them out in the store and online and I did purchase it online with free shipping.

5 Star Review   By domesticgoddess on Home Depot - Dec 11, 2012   

I enjoy vacuuming if that is possible. The DC24 is easy to use, maneuverable and has great suction. My only complaint is that the cord is a bit short. Otherwise, I highly recommend this vacuum.

A little surprised
4 Star Review   By Barbee on Home Depot - Dec 11, 2012   

I am hoping this vacuum is stronger than it appears. I love the job it does, but it seems so frail. For the price I expected it to be more solid than it is. I cleans like no other vacuum I have owned. For the price I hope it holds together. Ask me this again in about a year. I will recommend it for its cleaning ability.

Absolutely Love it
5 Star Review   By VictoriaV on Home Depot - Dec 11, 2012   

I bought 3 of these- one for myself, one for my elderly in-laws and one for my elderly parents. This is the perfect sweeper for them- lightweight- it doesn't wear them out to use it- works great- quick and easy. My parents are in their 80's and they love using this sweeper. I also love it for sweeping my kitchen floors and having handy. We have a rainbow sweeper and central vac in our home, but this is so much faster, easier and works great. This is the perfect sweeper for an elderly person that is still active and wants to be able to do things around the house. My parents and in-laws both love their DC24 Animal Dyson Sweeper.

Now this is a real vacuum cleaner!
5 Star Review   By BVergo on Home Depot - Dec 11, 2012   

No one really enjoys vacuuming, but this machine goes a long way in minimizing the work and hassle. This is a light machine that is easy to push around, about 1/3 the weight of the last premium bag-less (non-Dyson) we used. Great suction on both carpets and floors and a snap to empty and keep clean. We particularly like the design and operation of the wand, which gets into the hard to clean places easily. Some reviewers have complained about the 20 foot power cord not being long enough, but we decided pass on paying $100 more for a 35 foot cord and heavier machine. This is a superbly designed and crafted vacuum with high quality materials that should last us a long time.

This was junk
1 Star Review   By rat2 on Home Depot - Dec 11, 2012   

Out of the box this vacum felt like it was a toy. After assembly I vacumed the carpets. I then vacumed with my old name brand vacum. It was like I had not vacumed at all. My old name brand did a great job. A small suction hose would not stay in place. It felt cheaply made and it was. Home depot was great and returned it without questions.

Lives up to the dyson nrand
4 Star Review   By Katm on Home Depot - Dec 11, 2012   

I love this! Canister is small but after using it twice my carpet is cleaner than it has ever been and since it is so light I am using it more often so I don't need a big canister. I have 2 dogs that shed quite a bit so I am happy with its performance. Using The attachments was cumbersome at first but once you use it a couple of times you get used to it.

Powerful little machine!
4 Star Review   By Maur on Home Depot - Dec 11, 2012   

I have only had the Dyson for a few weeks, but I love the powerful suction it has. It is taking stuff out of my carpet that I didn't know was there. It is lightweight, which makes it a bit awkward to steer. My husband thinks it is not sturdy, but I think it is because he is used to heavy vacuums. My biggest issue is the small size of the dirt canister. It needs to be emptied after doing 2 rooms. I do have 2 pets who shed a lot. The vacuum I had before would probably go 6-8 rooms before needing to be emptied, but it also did not do anywhere near the job the Dyson is doing. When you need to empty the canister it is so easy, just place canister over a trash can, push a button and empty. No mess at all. Love that the handle is connected to the hose to use tools - very convenient and the compact size makes it easy to store away.

Powerful little vac.
4 Star Review   By vacgirl on Home Depot - Dec 11, 2012   

This dyson is a powerful little vac. The dirt cup is smaller than I thought it would be...have to empty more ofter. Another drawback is the wand attachement. The hose is not long enough. Over all this vacuum does a very respectable job. Pulls an enormous amount of dirt....works on both carpet and hard floors.

Not worth the money
4 Star Review   By OldManRiver on Home Depot - Dec 11, 2012   

Let's start ot by saying I've owned many vacuums from many manufacturers and the Dyson is not a "wonder vacuum" by any means. As a test I took my Dyson after we received it and vacuumed over the area I had done with my old $125 Hoover. The Dyson did not pick up anything, meaning my Hoover was doing just fine. The Dyson does not pick up the nap of my carpet as well as my Hoover did, and we really dislike the fact that the cord is so short and that for this money the cord is not self retractable as it is on my Hoover. In my opinion, go with the Hoover and save yourself almost $200!

4 Star Review   By Cindy on Home Depot - Dec 11, 2012   

I really like the weight and the way it handles. It picked up dog hair I couldn't see with my eyes, but it got it. My only negative comment is the size of the canister. I had to empty it alot. But maybe that just means it was doing a great job!

Great vacuum but not for me
4 Star Review   Home Depot   

Great vacuum with lots of power. I purchased it at an incredible price of $299 during black Friday. I decided to return it because I found a vacuum that helped me clean my house much faster. We own a pretty large house and it took forever using the Dyson.

Great Vacumn that needs a longer cord
5 Star Review   By Diane on Home Depot - Nov 28, 2012   

Got this Vacumn at a great price. It's still the most I've ever paid - but worth it! I vacumed the house with the old vacumn, then immediately followed with this Dyson and was amazed with the dirt it pulled up. Definitely recommend for apartments and small homes. PROS: great suction, lightweight CONS: short cord, poor design of canister removal to empty the contents. LOL I can't really explain it, but you learn to never make the same mistake twice.

Very POOR
1 Star Review   By 4dogs on Home Depot - Nov 22, 2012   

If you have pets, this is not the vacuum cleaner for you. Since the original purchase, I have had to obtain more than $100 in accessories to do a basic daily floor cleaning. Although this is not the fault of the retailer, this purchase is a substantial disappointment. Less then 90 days in, I am already in the market for a new floor cleaner.

Overall, great product but canister small if you have a big house
4 Star Review   By VS1980 on Home Depot - Nov 6, 2012   

I really like this vacuum, and would definitely recommend it. It's true that the canister on this model is a bit small, and if you have a very big house, you might have to empty it quite often. My apartment is about 600 sq. ft, so there's no problem with the size. Also, I'm usually really good with assembly, and this looked very easy but for some reason had a hard time with the diagrams - I was afraid of breaking something by applying too much pressure. Overall, it's really easy to use (once it's assembled), and it doesn't take up too much storage space.

Love My Dyson!
4 Star Review   By Jeno on Home Depot - Nov 6, 2012   

This is my first Dyson. I'll be honest, I've never spent so much on a vacuum before. Dyson lives up to the hype. I love the design and ease of use. The suction could be better, but a bigger engine would make the unit heavier and I truly appreciate the lightweight design. It's also very easy to clean!

Great, but everything about it is smaller
4 Star Review   By Superb3 on Home Depot - Oct 23, 2012   

No vacuum is perfect, and there are always features that you want but don't have. This vacuum is great, light, not too loud, great suction, swivel ball, furniture tool. But power cord and attachment hose are both too short (as most others have said). I can only get half way up my stairs with the hose. And I plan on permanently connecting an extension cord to the power cord someday! Simply put, everything about this vacuum is smaller than the original Dyson...good and not so good.

The Animal DC24 Dyson is smaller than the other ones. It really works with getting into corners and is just easier for all around use. very happy that i brought it has every feature the larger ones have and workes every bit as good. GREAT FOR APARTMENTS and easy to store just compact.

Smaller, lighter and still sucks...in a good way
4 Star Review   By Spidey13 on Home Depot - Sep 25, 2012   

This smaller, lighter ball model is easier to maneuver with the ball. Changing attachments isn't as easy, but it's still not difficult. The main hose is stiff but I expect that will loosen up in times. The cord is shorter, but moving between rooms is a breeze. I find I am actually using this more often because it's not a big effort to get it out and carry it to where I need it.

Wow... Wow.. wow!
5 Star Review   By Vita63640 on Home Depot - Sep 20, 2012   

This vacuum is amazing. I vacuumed with my old 12 amp vacuum first before the Dyson arrived today and then once it arrived I put it together SUPER easily. A few snaps and it is together.. easy peasy! The suction is amazing as well. Like I said, I had already vacuumed but the stuff I pulled out of my carpet.. ew! It picked up ALL animal hair. It is very light and compact. I only have about 1200 sq. ft of carpet covering my house - the rest has hard floors - but this little vacuum is perfect for the size. I wish the canister was a little bigger. It just takes time to empty is all though, so no big deal on that.

5 Star Review   By madtaymom on Home Depot - Sep 19, 2012   

We had been looking for a new vacuum cleaner for a while and had read not to get a Dyson Animal by Consumer Reports and wasted our money on some cheap upright that stopped running a few years after we bought it. We finally caved and bought the Dyson Animal and are so mad at CR because it is the best vacuum cleaner ever! It picks up an amazing amount of dog hair, which I had expected, but the amount of dirt and dust it gets has just amazed me. It is worth the price. It picks up dried play dough, cereal crumbs and just everything. I will never buy another non-Dyson again.

Compact
5 Star Review   By TMB1969 on Home Depot - Sep 4, 2012   

There are no bulky attachments, the handle can also be used as a hose. Very small but has lots of suction power.

I can't believe how much more dirt & hair this Dyson picks up than my old vacuum. So easy to use, also!!
5 Star Review   By Babs on Home Depot - Aug 28, 2012   

I love my new Dyson Animal. The amount of hair & dirt I picked up the first time I vacuumed was amazing. I can't believe my carpet has been hiding all that dirt!! Plus, it was lightweight & easy to maneuver. I'm thrilled I made the choice to move to a Dyson!!!

Terrific! I love it!
5 Star Review   By Toodles on Home Depot - Jul 31, 2012   

I love this vacuum. I have a dog and this vacuum picks up the hair like nothing else. It is so easy to empty and you never have any odor. I can't believe how easy it is to use. I love the attachments for animals. I would highly recommend it!

Overall: Excellent (See Comments)
5 Star Review   By MSRANGER on Home Depot - Jul 24, 2012   

PROS: 1) The SIZE and WEIGHT are very convenient. 2) SUCTION is excellent; the machine does a great job of getting ground-in (as fine as powder) dirt out of rugs. 3) The FILTERS seem to help remove very small particles from the air. 4) The OVERALL DESIGN and CONSTRUCTION are amazing. CONS: 1) The CORD is TOO SHORT (it is only 20" and it needs to be 35' as is the case with the larger Dyson vacuums) 2) The INSTRUCTIONS are TERRIBLE. Surely something that costs this much and has this kind of technology behind it can have a decent set of instructions. There are no written instructions--just line drawings that, in some cases, are difficult to decipher. 3) The WASTE COLLECTION CONTAINER is POORLY DESIGNED. If one is not very careful, one can dump the contents of the waste container while in the process of trying to remove the container from the machine. A short downward push on the release button allows the container to disengage; a stronger downward push on the same button opens the bottom of the container and allows the waste to spill out onto the machine and the floor/carpet. 4) Be aware that the design of this machine will not allow it to go UNDERNEATH BEDS, unless they are raised rather high off the floor.

Lightweight and meets my needs well
5 Star Review   Home Depot   

We love the DC24 for its light weight and power. We just moved and the movers lost the one we ordered two months ago. We liked it so much that we ordered and paid out of pocket for a replacement of the identical model.

Don't hesitate
5 Star Review   By amfaz on Home Depot - Jul 17, 2012   

Just because the header on this product says closeout, if you are looking for a lightweight, effective vacuum, don't hesitate to get this one. The price was the lowest I found anywhere, and the "animal" version of the product is the best I've ever owned (without telling you how old I am, suffice it to say I've owned ALOT of vacuums). I only have carpet in my three bedrooms, and a few room size area rugs, but it does all the carpets, rugs, and the tile floors. I use on the furniture to pick up pet hair as well (2 cats, 2 dogs), and it is amazing.

5 Star Review   By BorderCollie4 on Home Depot - Jul 17, 2012   

This is a great product... just wish the cord was longer and canister a little bigger.. I knew this purchasing this product. After all it is a compact... great product. Suction could be a little better right against wall and corners. Over all great product.

Finally, a vacuum that actually picks up cat hair
5 Star Review   By Mags on Home Depot - Jul 3, 2012   

Vacuuming used to be my least favorite task, but with my new Dyson I vacuum several times a week! It is light-weight, easy to maneuver and picks up dirt and cat hair from my 3 cats that I can't even see. The only disadvantage is that when you empty the container, dust flies into the air. I need to take it outside to empty it.

Very good suction. Lightweight and easy to empty and clean. Only awkard part is the way the extension rod connects.
4 Star Review   By SueSue on Home Depot - Jun 26, 2012   

I expected to be surprized at the dirt that this vac picked up but was really shocked! It pulled up dust and dirt we didn't even know was there. This vac is great and very easy to use. It switches from carpet to floor eith a push of a button. It has a upholstry attachment with a spinning brush. It is lightweight and easy to pick up. The ext wand connects to the tube upside down which i find awkward. And the cord is not very long so i end up plugging in to two diff outlets in each room thpically.

This vacuum works wonderfully!
4 Star Review   By Carol on Home Depot - Jun 20, 2012   

Love this vacuum! So lighweight and picks up dog and cat hair better than any vacuum I've owned! The only change I would like to see Dyson make is to have a longer power cord. The cord is quite short and requires changing electrical outlets more often.

Best vacuum I've ever owned.
5 Star Review   By KatieTX on Home Depot - Jun 19, 2012   

This is the first machine I've ever had that does the job it needs to, and keeps going no matter how extensive the mess! It does a great job, from upholstery to tile to carpet.

I already have a full size Dyson Animal which I just love. However, this small dyson - small is accurate, but the quality is poor. Returned it to the store.

Good pick
5 Star Review   By Linda on Home Depot - Jun 5, 2012   

I already have the regular Dyson Animal. I was interested in this because it is light weight....as I have two flights of steps in our home. This "little brother" seems just as powerful. It can get in to smaller places. The switch to hose was tricky at first, but thats because I was trying to convert it the same way as the regular model. I now have the hang of it, and it is basically easy to do. It makes sweeping the steps a breeze, and is easily helping me get in to those corners and tight areas.

4 Star Review   By SanDiegoGal on Home Depot - May 29, 2012   

It has very good suction and is very easy to handle. It has way to small a vacuum head and the canister has to be emptied to often. They both should be larger and then it would be perfect.

awesome vacuum
5 Star Review   By cle04 on Home Depot - May 29, 2012   

I love my Dyson. It's so much better than my former vacuum because it weighs less, is more compact, requires no bags, and has many great features such as an extendable hose to clean higher up areas or small cramped spaces. I love the ball feature of this vacuum...since it turns so easily it's easy to avoid shoe strings etc. at the last minute.

This product is great!
5 Star Review   By Pink on Home Depot - May 29, 2012   

I have only used my dc24 once but I love it! The suction is great and so is the steering. It does have a small container which u have to empty often but I dont plan on having my floors so dirty that il have to empty it before im done so im ok with that. So for ppl that think its to small, u should vaccum more often. The cord is short but I was aware of that when I bought it, that is a mistake but a short extension cord isn't that much and the vaccum is so worth it so if someone is trying to make up their mind if they wanna get it or not I can tell u, u wont regret it if u do n if u regret it, theres free returns!

LOVE THIS VAC! Can I marry it?!
5 Star Review   By ANDQ on Home Depot - May 29, 2012   

What's not to love? I vacuumed with an existing bagless, then followed with the Dyson animal...wow, it picked up three times what the other one did, AFTER being vacuumed once already. The attachments are convenient (love the telescoping, dual purpose handle), size and weight and beautiful (it's really small), easy and clean to empty and the full action furniture attachment makes life much easier. The only improvement I could think of is to have a place on the machine to store that furniture attachment rather than having to keep track of where it may be in the closet. LOVE LOVE LOVE This vacuum. I find it very likely I'll never own another brand again.

DC24 Animal Upright
3 Star Review   By Barber on Home Depot - May 29, 2012   

Great product compared to previous vacuums owned. Detachable handle is great for anything above the waist, but is awkward to use for anything that is low or close to the ground. I give it 3 stars due to this issue and the price for the size of the vacuum. It was very small to spend $300+.

Dyson DC24 Animal
5 Star Review   By Sybil on Home Depot - May 22, 2012   

I LOVE my Dyson and its quiet enough that it doesn't make my cat -- or my neighbors since I live in a 2 family house -- crazy! Now I can vacuum anytime of the day or night and not worry about waking everyone up and it works wonderfully! I especially like the way it empties -- it all goes into the trash and not all over my hands like my old vacuum which had a tube that had to be removed to empty it properly and made my allergies crazy!

Great vacuum
5 Star Review   By momof4 on Home Depot - May 22, 2012   

I have 2 dogs that shed a lot, a messy husband, and new baby and this vacuum is great. I am able to vacuum less now that I have it because it picks up more than my old vacuum. It was expensive, but I am hoping that it lasts for a long time, making it worth the price.

Shockingly Superior Performance!
5 Star Review   By 1QRX on Home Depot - May 18, 2012   

I never realized how badly my canister vacuum has been performing. I, too, found the Dyson Animal to be far superior to any other vacuum I've used to get rid of animal hair. Since I have no room for storing a large or multiple unit vacuum system this was the recommendation from a friend and I am pleased I can slide it behind my couch. It is incredibly lightweight and easily manageable for emptying the canister, as well. I should have purchased this years ago - glad I took advantage of the closeout! The free shipping sealed the deal for me!

This vacuum is light, easy to move, and picks up great!!
5 Star Review   By itsme420 on Home Depot - May 15, 2012   

I am extemely pleased with this vacuum. I have four cats that are inside 24/7. This vacuum picks up pretty much all the hair off the floor and any furniture I use it on. The true test of this was when my three year old son sat on the floor in navy shorts. When he got up, there was NO cat hair on his shorts!! That has never happened before! This is a wonderful product. The only short fall I can find with it, is that I wish the power cord was longer, but this is nothing that can't be worked around.

Few issues, does work well
4 Star Review   By Steve on Home Depot - May 4, 2012   

Vacuum itself picks up awesome! The hose attachment, particularly the accessories provided do not work well on a hardwood floor. I liked the set up on my previous Dyson better when it comes to the hose. Again the main vac works great. It picks up dust and dirt way better than my previous Dyson Animal. The cord is ridiculously short, I would say 1/3 the length of the cord on my previous Dyson, I constantly have to unplug and move the cord to do my entire living/dining/kitchen space. I do like the quick on/off for the rolling bristles, and the suction. I need to order a longer cord and some different attachments, which I don't appreciate when paying so much.

Great Vacuum - short cord
4 Star Review   By PamL on Home Depot - May 2, 2012   

The DC24 Animal works wonders on our carpets! I already have a Dyson vacuum but, after five years, I could tell it was slowing down a bit. We have two big, furry dogs and hair tumbleweeds are common in our house. I was beyond shocked at how much hair and dirt this new vacuum picked up. It hugs the floor better than the other Dyson, maneuvers much easier and is a lot more light-weight. My only criticism with the product is the cord - it is way too short! I have one room that I can't actually get across unless I use an extension cord. And, even on close-out, it is a little spendy. But I do love how much junk it picks up from my floors (even though it grosses me out!).

Pretty good, but like my Oreck better
4 Star Review   By nicky on Home Depot - Apr 26, 2012   

The dyson DC24 animal is OK. i have 1/2 hardwood floors & 1/2 carpet. i have a dog who sheds so lots of hair. i had an oreck (the basic model) & loved that - it was so light and did such a great job. i had tried this dyson 5 years ago before buying my old oreck & ended up returning it back then and will do the same now after testing it a 2nd time. my dog recently chewed through my oreck's cord so i bought another vacuum. cons: i dont like having to push a button everytime i go from carpet to hardwood floors to turn off the roller. the dyson does pretty good on carpet (my low level oreck did better though & was lighter), but not as good on wood floors. it seems to leave stuff behind and doesn't pick up chunky items like well. plus, i dont like emptying the cylander 2x during each vacuum session (i only have a 2200 sq foot 1 story house). i'd rather wait for 6 months then change bags. but i guess it's cheaper in the long run. i'm going to pay $50 to fix my oreck & i'm going to return this dyson again. pros: it's lighter than most. i'd take it 2nd to my oreck. if they stopped making my oreck, i'd be happy with this, but as long as they make the cheaper orecks, buy that instead in my opinion.

5 Star Review   By robc on Home Depot - Apr 18, 2012   

I was amazed at what this little vacuum picked up. Once I put it together (it was a birthday present), I tested it out and couldn't believe what it picked up in a short time. It was pricey, but you get what you pay for. Very pleased.

This product does exactly what it advertises.
5 Star Review   By lar123 on Home Depot - Apr 17, 2012   

The vacuum is very lightweight and turns very easily. I have a 3 story townhome so hauling a normal vacuum was very hard but this vacuum is so lightweight I can carry it from the 1st floor to the 3rd floor without a problem. Judging by what I dump out of the container I would say the vacuum picks up a lot. I have a dog and the container is always full of hair. I would say the only negative and it is really minor is the vacuum hose isn't very long.

5 Star Review   By AnimalLover on Home Depot - Apr 17, 2012   

I am so glad I finally ordered the Dyson I had been wanting for quite sometime. It works great on hardwood floors, linoleum and carpeted surfaces. Transitions from one to another automatically. Light as a feather to carry from room to room and so easy to clean. It is well worth the money !! It seems to just attract the Pet hair while sweeping. Excellant product !!!

I love my Dyson
5 Star Review   By Belle on Home Depot - Apr 17, 2012   

I have wanted a Dyson vacumn for about 5 years. But the price point has always been a sticking point for me; so instead I limped along with inferior vacumns that lasted 18 - 24 months. I brought my Dyson home and it took a minute to assemble, a minute to plug in and another minute for me to fall in love. I have a cat and 90% of my flooring is hardwood and tile and it does a superb job

JUST ONE THING THAT I FIND THAT WHEN VACUMING RUGS, THE TURBINE HEAD DOES NOT KICK IN FOR EXTRA SUCTION. IS THIS A DEFECTED ONE? PLEASE ADVISE. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS VACUM, ESPECIALLY IF YOU HAVE PETS. IT'S FAST & EASY.

Not a bad vacuum...
3 Star Review   By RWNewell on Home Depot - Apr 10, 2012   

Cleans well and is reasonably easy to operate. I wish the brush head were an inch or two wider; also, the switch that controls the brush is a bit difficult to operate. Another small issue is that the cord is quite short for a vacuum cleaner...it needs to be about 10 feet longer.
