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.

Comment:
I doubt this one will get posted. This one specific product is the reason I no longer value Consumer Report magazine in my consumer purchases. I just looked and we have had our Dyson Animal for over 4 years now. No breakdowns, countless amount of dog hair (we must have the worst dog concerning shedding) vacuumed up from carpet, hardwood, & tile. I do wish the cord was a bit longer. As another posted pointed out - you get what you pay for! (I did have to replace a filter that I ruined myself by not following instructions when cleaning.) In conclusion, when this one breaks - I will be looking for another Dyson ball style vacuum to replace it.

Comment:
I bought the Dyson Animal to replace my Kirby. Big mistake. I need a vacuum with strong hose suction on wood floors. This doesn't have it. It's heavy, noisy and the hose doesn't reach far enough. It does do a decent job on carpet. Do not recommend.
