Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Review

The Cinetic Big Ball initially looks almost space age with its cyclonic cones and its overall appearance which incorporates the large ball that acts as the wheel and contains the motor. Assembling the vacuum was relatively easy & the only bit I struggled with was the assembly of the area to store the attachments. I’m not certain but I don’t think there is anywhere to store the main / larger attachment. I genuinely like the mechanism that automatically and independently allows the device to stand up right or click into a work angle as opposed the traditional pedal that my previous vacuum cleaners have had. The suction is fantastic and superior to my previous vacuum cleaners and certainly sucks up the dirt / dust. In addition the ball and the slim cleaning head make the vacuum very maneuverable and certainly allows you to clean nice and close to the wall. We live in a quirky cottage so I found it particularly useful on our split level landing. It sort of glides or slithers across the different levels. The cleaning of the stairs is a breeze and this feature has been factored in to the design with a long power cord and the ingenious hose which extends greatly and which allows the vacuum to remain positioned at the foot of the stairs whilst extending to the top of the stairs and landing. The emptying of the clear bin is really easy and becomes easily detached with a press of a button. Once detached, you press a button which drops open a hinge from the bottom. It did however take a few goes in learning how to put it back together. The Dyson Cinetic Big Ball apparently removes the need to clean dust filters and also claims to guarantee vacuum's suction for the machine's working life. With its performance so far we have confidence the dust particles will reduce and we can confirm the cleaning of the carpets has become simpler and a little quicker. Great design, great features, great product. Janine Lawder

It's one heck of an animal!

First and foremost, this is an extremely powerful machine. The suction power is second to none. Up until receiving this, I really believed my house was pretty clean... then I used this and it managed to suck up a full cylinder of dust on its' very first use!!! I had literally only hoovered the night before!! I have put this machine through its' paces. Door frames, under the sofas, under beds, hard floors, carpets - you name it, this Dyson has cleaned it! I love the attachments too, there's one specific to sucking up hair without tangling too, which will be perfect for when my pup moults! The hose is long enough for me to just about do my stairs though I would like it a little longer without feeling I was straining it. The machine looks great and has a really contemporary design. It fits well in small spaces too. The machine is really easy to use, the cylinder comes off at the touch of a button for easy emptying. If I had to find fault with this product, I would have to say I do find it quite heavy. I have now turned the suction to minimum and I find this allows it to glide a lot easier for me. It moves effortlessly around furniture and reaches under my sofas. All in all, a wonderful product! Thank you Dyson, I'll never look back!

Far more powerful than my old DC40 animal. It is a bit heavy but as long as your not going up and down stairs too often its ok. Excellent purchase.

Fantastic, but...

Overall, the vacuum cleaner is fantastic. The only issue that I do have is that the vacuum cleaner produces a lot of excessive heat, and on quite a few occasions it has overheated and cut-out, thus requiring around an hour before it can be used again. This is highly frustrating if you're halfway through your cleaning! My house is medium sized, but the vacuum cleaner is recommended for a large house... problem? This is the second one of this model that I have received, as the first one was replaced due to the same problem, and I was told that it was a fault, but to also happen on my new one pushes me to think that it is an overall problem with this model, rather than a vac specific fault. I'd be curious to hear whether other people have this problem? Regardless to say, the vacuum cleaner definitely does an excellent job, but this frustrating issue warrants the 3 stars that I have given it.

Love it!

I love it !!!! I've got three Siberian husky dogs and is perfect for hairy house, easy to use but heavy tho.

The product arrives in 3 pieces so some building is required but this simply consists of brush bar click, cleaning handle click, accessories click! It’s that easy, in fact getting it out of the box is harder. The machine itself is a little heavy to carry but all the weight is located in the ball and is extremely easy to move, the ball takes some getting used to after vacuuming in straight lines but you do get the hang of it after banging a few skirting boards. So what’s it like to use, well honestly, it really is an animal, the suction is fantastic and can even be made stronger although on the highest setting you may have to do some stretches and cancel that gym membership because it really does suck. On emptying the dust cylinder, which isn’t that big, you really do notice Dysons Cinetic technology as it deposits the super fine dust, that normally clogs the filters, along with all the dog hairs you just can’t see, I was shocked at how dirty my carpets really were! Unlike most cleaners the Dyson has a separate switch to control the brush bar, located next to main power switch on the handle, so it is suitable for hard floors and carpets. The only negatives I can find for this machine are firstly the heat the motor generates, the ball can get quite hot but having read the owner’s manual you realise that this is down to its digital motor spinning at 100,000 rpm! How fast!! The second is the brush bar, it appears that there is no belt to change, which is brilliant, instead it has its own motor but this means it really does spin and in our house we have two types of carpet, cut pile and loop pile, the brush bar picked up a thread on the loop pile and quickly wrapped it round the brush bar, unnoticed we then vacuumed the cut pile, the sheer power of the brush bar and the size of thread wrapped around it meant that the heat generated was sufficient to melt the loop pile and leave two scars in our carpet. Not so brilliant! Energy efficiency rating for this machine is D, which is probably due to the heat but a 5 year guarantee on parts and labour makes this a perfect choice for a busy family or anyone with pets. Slight confusion on the filters as Dyson box says no filters to clean, Cinetic technology, yet instruction manual recommends cleaning filters monthly!? I phoned them and apparently the page in the manual is an oversight so definitely no cleaning of filters! Would I recommend this machine, absolutely, it’s a fantastic design that excels in everything it does, it looks amazing, suction is fantastic and hose reach is good, full extension will reach up the entire staircase (13 steps) obviously you need to take care when using the brush bar but all in all a must have piece of kit!
