i have the dc41 (big animal up right) and the dc45 (cordless). i love them both! they work so good. i love that they go from hard floor to carpet with such ease and the suction is so great it catches everything. and the attachments are so easy to use which is nice for cleaning along the wall edge and furniture while im doing my normal vacuuming.
with that said, we were very lucky to get the upright as a house warming present and i won the cordless one at a work party, so i never had to shell out the money for them.

I have a Dyson animal and I love it!!! In the past I had old, heavy hand me downs that worked okay. We got the Dyson from my in-laws for the wedding. I wasn’t too excited at first, but I really love it. It’s so maneverable! I vaccuum more because it’s easier!

I have both the Dyson upright and the cordless version and I LOVE them both! I highly recommend them. I have 4 furbabies and a messy DH to clean up after all the time. The only issue I have with the upright is that it’s somewhat heavy and a pain to use on the stairs. I purchased the cordless version a couple years ago for the stairs and under the bed and it works perfectly.

We have a Dyson DC33 and it’s pretty amazeballs. It’s never let me down, totally terminates the wirey dog hair & the cat hair. It handles cat litter, dust bunnies, that “sticky dust” that often accumulates on heater and AC vents.
I love it. I have to empty it a couple times in the living room because the dog sheds like crazy, but it seriously gets the floors completely clean. I use it on the hard granite tile and the carpets just fine. It’s great to use before mopping the floor since it gets up all the hair and dust bunnies.

We bought an Oreck at my moms suggestion.
Let me tell you. It rocks my world. It picks up everything with ease, super lightweight (15 pounds), has a super long cord, and lifetime warranty.
I used to rarely vacuum bc ours sucked and was so heavy. Now I vacuum every few days. It’s just so easy and convenient. I believe it was $250

I have the new top of the line version of the non animal one. They overhauled it this year. So much lighter and easier to handle. It does a very thorough job.

I think so, yes. I’ve had two: an upright yellow one and a pull behind purple one. They are interesting to get used to using, but once you have the hang of handling them, they are fabulous!

@pengoala: IMO, no, not worth it.
I have a Shark Navigator that I paid $170 for. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it. My mom has the same vac. It’s lightweight, detaches from the base to do stairs and ceilings, easy to empty, had it for 3 years and never one problem with it. I am in love with it.

I have two and they are amazing! One is an older one that was my Dads and we purchased another today – the handheld animal D44 and it’s amazing!

@pengoala: They are not worth it…at all. I am working in homes right now while I attend school to learn the language here and I have worked with soooo many different vacuum cleaners since I started this job. I absolutely hated the Dyson. The only really nice feature about it was the thin vacuum head and the way it’s able to rotate. But that is only a nice feature when you are on completely flat surfaces (wood flooring, tiles…etc.) – if you try it on carpets or stairs, forget about it. I was absolutely not impressed. They are 500 euro here. It’s ridiculous. They don’t even pick things up all that well.

Yes!!! It’s amazing! I actually was using our old vacuum last night (which I used to love and think was awesome) and I realized how much better thr Dyson truly is.

I couldn’t go back to our Vax or Hoover now
Will say though that ours was free 🙂

I don’t know which model I have but it’s one of the higher end ones….and I would say no, not worth it. I mean, it’s definitely better than previous vacuums I have had, and I was SO EXCITED for it. But it doesn’t rock my world by any means. And I don’t think it’s worth the price tag. We got it as a wedding gift (from our registry) but I just don’t know that I would buy one on my own when the time comes to need our next vacuum.

@pengoala: I LOVE MY DYSON!!!!! Never thought i could love a damn vacuum this much
I got the Dyson Animal Upright Vacuum, it was $600 at Bed Bath and Beyond, but we only paid $200 for it out of pocket bc we got a lot of gift caeds from the bridal shower. I told DH that even if we didnt get all these gift cards, I still would have bought the vacuum bc it is amazing.
I have a Jack Russell Terrier and her hair is wired and gets embedded into our carpet, the vacujm gets it all!

I have two of them at work and really hate them. Two different versions, and both of them lost suction, leaving pieces on the carpet every time. I would never pay the money for the two I use.
