Good Buy if the Price is Right
Reviewed in the United States on November 21, 2015
It was time for me to stop fixing my budget vacuums and move up to a higher quality vacuum. I did that with this Dyson. It did a really good job on the majority of the carpets. It pulled canister after canister of unseen filth from the carpets that my old vacuum left behind. It had a tougher time with the shag entry rugs but it managed to pick up pretty well from those as well as long as it was pulled in reverse, so it were more than just a small entry rug, that would get old quick.
The vacuum is small, light, and easy to store, and pretty maneuverable but I'm 6'1" and a few more inches of handle would be nice. It could also use a few more inches of reach on the extension hose for those higher drapes and cobwebs. It did reach the corners of an 8 foot ceiling, but more slack would make it easier to manipulate the telescoping extension.
The collection bin is on the small side, but it's super easy to empty. One button release and it clicks right back into place easily.
I was really impressed with how this vacuum handled transitioning from carpeting to non carpeted areas. It was seamless and did an excellent job on the kitchen tile.
It doesn't have that real sturdy feel to it, but it's light, maneuverable, and gets the job done.
