About This Brand

Colorful styling, innovative features, and a splashy advertising campaign featuring its namesake owner and designer have helped Dyson quickly become a major player in the U.S. Ranging in price from about $300 to $600, Dyson vacuums have helped increase the average price paid for uprights. Canisters have joined that lineup. Hand vacs are also part of the mix. The brand is available nationwide through major mass merchants such as Target, Best Buy, and Sears.

I love this vacuum. I too thought it lost its suction after just a few weeks, but my nephew showed me how to clean it out. Now, it's wonderful again. It cleans better than my old big vacuum and it's easy to use. I would buy it again!!

Comment:
I have a very small house so I didn't think I needed a large vacuum cleaner. The brush/rotator constantly stops rotating with only a few dog hairs. The smallest visable crumbs do not get sucked up they only get moved across the floor. I'm very dissapointed in its performance for the price. I will say the retractable cord performs excellant but that doesn't clean my house.

Comment:
Not sure about some of the negative reviews. We have carpet, hard to vacuum spanish tile, and ceramic tile. For the spanish tile I prefer the optional hard floor brush, which really should come standard. Excellent on pet hair (we have a smaller dog). Three long haired women give it a workout, but it does an excellent job. You will have to cut the long hair out of the carpet tool roller on occasion, but this has been true of all the vacuums we have owned. Emptying the bin is a bit messy if you have never done it before, but this is the price you pay with all the bagless vacs - best to do it outside. For ultimate cleanliness, I prefer to empty/change a vacs bin/bag after every use, which is why I prefer a bagless vac. The lifetime, washable HEPA filter is a big plus (quick and easy to wash out, so you do it more often). What I love the most about the Dyson is the cleanliness of the air that comes out - you just don't spread dust around. Five pounds lighter than the top rated Kenmore which I tried at the store. The weight really makes a difference. Quality everything. Well engineered. I might add that the Consumer Reports website shows a picture of the DC 39 Origin model, not the Animal.
