I have wanted a Dyson for some time.
This vacuum is very handy and easy to use. I love the suction on this vacuum and the fact that it can be used on carpets as well as hard floors! I have not had a chance to use the extension tool for high places/or under furniture, but am pretty confident it will work equally well for me.

I am sad to say I was very disappointed in the quality of this machine, and it will be going back to the store. Granted, I only used the machine for one day, but there were more than enough dealbreaker cons to warrant a return. Some observations from my try out: Suction: It seemed to pick up well, but I didn’t notice any more suction than my 8 year old Bissell has. Beater bar: You start the beater bar with a button located on the front of the vacuum. The only problem is, once you press it you can’t tell if it’s on because the beater is so quiet (which on one hand is nice), and the button does not stay depressed or light up. Also, as others have commented, this vacuum doesn’t leave vacuum marks on the carpet or do anything to make the pile stand up. If you’re like me and need to see the vacuum lines, this is not the machine for you. I finished vacuuming and while there was dirt in the canister to show for it, the carpet didn’t look fresh. Starting the vacuum: I found starting and reclining the machine to be awkward. Every upright vacuum I’ve ever had has an “on” switch and a foot pedal to depress which reclines the machine and allows you to start vacuuming. This machine does both functions through the on switch, so when you hit the “on” button, you also have to push down on the handle fairly hard (to the point I was worried I might break it – and I am a 5’1 110lb female with no upper body strength) to recline the upright part of the machine and start the wheels. The Ball: This is a nice feature, as it does allow you more mobility around corners instead of the usual back and forth motion. However, if you want to use this machine to vacuum stairs, forget about it. The ball makes the beater bar flop around when you pick it up (vs. a regular upright which has a better hinge), so you have to sort of hover the vacuum over the carpet. If you stand the vacuum too vertical, it will disengage the beater bar and shut the suction off. I don’t even want to think about how clumsy it would be to try to use the hose attachment on the stairs. Hose and attachments: This feature seemed fairly useless. There is a hard plastic extension on the end of the hose that makes it very difficult to use for anything other than reaching up high (it would work for cleaning curtains and the ceiling I guess), but since I was looking to use it to get cat hair off my couch and vacuum crumbs under the cabinets and appliances, it’s pretty useless to me. That plastic piece is supposed to be detachable, but when I tried to take it off, I was afraid I might break it, so I gave up. Even if I did get it off, the hose is too short to stretch to anything anyway. Cord: I picked this machine because it has a 24ft cord, vs. other models with a 20ft. I couldn't get from one end of my living room to the other without switching outlets. For $500, if it's not going to generate it's own power, you should at least be able to get across the living room without unplugging. Canister: I actually thought the canister held a lot of dirt. I also liked that the canister has button to press that drops the debris out the bottom (instead of having to flip it upside down, which for me always seems to result in a plume of dust in my face). Assembly: Echoing other reviews, I was shocked assembly instructions came on an index card with only pictures (which were hard to make out)and no written directions! I figured it out without a lot of problem, but come on folks! I am sad to say I think people are buying these things on the name alone. I will be returning this machine and trying another Bissell Lift Off for less than half the price.

Very Good machine, just a few cons
This Dyson lives up to its name when it comes to quality and versatility. We love how easy it moves around the house and it looks great too. The only few things i wish were better was more power and more attachments.

After a month of use I still like the vacuum
I was somewhat apprehensive about buying an expensive vacuum but this Dyson seems to be worth the money. I like how easy it is to switch from having the brushes on or off when vacuuming carpets and wood floors. The telescoping hose is great and it easily reaches the top step of the staircase. The canister is simple to release, empty, and replace.
