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.
