My old dyson lasted me 10+ years and I loved it. This one totally blew my socks off! Amazing suction and ease of manoeuvrability! I Love it!

Great product

I'm very pleased with my new dyson vacuum cleaner fantastic suction can't believe how much dust my old cleaner hadn't picked up

Dyson animal DC40

Very disappointed. Always had Dyson hovers before, but this model is not a patch on my older model DC25. It is very unstable and flimsy. It is also very expensive. My old Dyson was a far better cleaner. I would not purchase this item again. Sorry Dyson not one of your better inventions. Very disappointed.

Dyson animal

I bought this to replace my old Dyson and can say once again I have not been disappointed.

Great for dog hairs

We bought this vacuum as previously we had a Henry and it was struggling to pick up the hairs from our two dogs. The Dyson is has made a real difference and is getting all the dog hair. The only negative is that the track ball is actually quite difficult to steer but it might just take some getting used to.

Pros: Attachments, Design, Dog hair removal, Looks good Cons: Difficult to steer

The brilliant Mr Dyson!

I had my last Dyson for 15 years and it was old and tired so the time came to replace it. I'm really impressed with this new Dyson. Its suction is fantastic, it's easy to use and the add-ons are fabulous. It's lighter to carry upstairs than my old Dyson too. I won't have a word said against it!! Everyone should get one!
