    I bought the Dyson Animal upright 41, after our Bissell lift-off revolution died. I don’t think it picks up more dog hair than the Bissell, but it’s a lot easier to use. The design is very intuitive, and I end up cleaning things that have never been cleaned before. My house is also cleaner, since it’s less of a hassle to vacuum.

    They’re garbage. 

    I own a business with a residential cleaning division, we use Panasonic MC-CG937’s. They are used multiple times a day, every single day, on all kinds of flooring and are dropped and otherwise roughly handled. 

    Any time a client asks us to use their Dyson, the workers are so disappointed haha. They’re much too heavy and I’m flabbergasted that people would pay *that* much for *that* thing. There are some clients who have even admitted they regret their Dyson, and one lady said she still uses hers so that her husband doesn’t get upset that they spent all that money only for her to dislike the vacuum she begged for lol! 

    They have quite the marketing campaign, and that is what your money is going to. 

    If you’re really sold on the “dyson technology” just get a Shark.

    I’ve had the original animal for at least the last 6 years and I love it!  It picks up things I didn’t even know were in my carpet.

    We just have the small portable Dyson and it’s amazing. We have a black, long haired dog and white carpets. The Dyson makes it look like she was never even there. The first time we used it, it cleared up stuff that was still in the carpet from when the building was built. I love it.

    MrsBananas:  nope. Definitely prefer my miele vacuum. Its better construction and a larger capacity for the bag. I could barely do a room in the house due to the canister being small and the dog hair being light enough to wedge between the cyclones and edge of the canister.

    We went through a bunch of cheap uprights every year until we finally got the Dyson Animal as a gift one Christmas! We have two dogs that shed a lot (me too!) and it’s held up great. Suction is the same as the first day. It’s pretty light and doesn’t take up much room. It’s been about two years and we use it every week.

    You can regularly pick up a Dyson on woot.com for 200 so it’s not worth cashing in all those post for, imo. We just got one and since all our carpet is ripped up, I can’t say how it works yet. I do have a Eureka bagless and it’s a pain in the rear end. It come apart weird, connections are crap, the filter thingy is a pain, and the belts burn through easily and quickly. It’s the only vacuum I’ve ever had that I absolutely hated.

    MrsBananas:  I have a cannister Dyson, which was about $400, and I love it! It’s great. Super easy to use and I feel like it picks up so much. No issues with my Dyson yet.

    I am in the same boat I have 2 beagles that shed like crazy. We have bought a vacuum a year for the last few years and are trying to decide between finishing our central vac ( roughed in right now) and a more expensive vacuum like a dyson.

    We also have a roomba and we absolutly love it!! I used to be a slave to our vacuum due to the amount of hair. But the Roomba can’t do stairs so we need one for that.

    Dyson!!! I have tried everything imaginable. Every make invented (trust me, I’m of a certain age that it is more than possible!)

    I have now had a Dyson for over 5 years. I gave one to my son as well! They really know something about design.
