My mom has one and I love it so much that whenever I go see her I seriously think about how it will fit into my car on the way back.

I want to know this as well. I want one really bad. Is the pet one any better then a regular one?

I am all about things that will last more than a year or two.  We’ve had our Dyson for about three years and it sucks just as good when we got it out of the box.  We have the animal.  It is a bit heavy but it came with so many attachments.  We bought it at Costco.

Yes they are! I hvae the all floors one and it is amazing! I have had awful luck with vacuums and have had to pretty much buy a new one every year. This one has lasted over a year is amazing. So, really in the long run is going to save me money. I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT

Mine is very light too. We used to live in a 2000 sq ft house with a bunch of stairs and hardwood floors and linolium and shag carpet. It worked perfectly for all of those!

My mom’s is amazing. $250 for a Dyson is a steal.

I guess I’m the only one that hates them but NO.

Fiance works at Best Buy and he will sell one and within a week it will be brought back complaining that it is a piece of junk. And they can use any of them while they are cleaning at work and he used it once and didn’t like it, he ended up buying us a Eureka and its amazing..

I’m not an expert on these. The one I have experience with—my mom’s—doesn’t have the ball and it works great. I think the ball is primarily for maneuverability, yes?

NO! It tore up my carpet so I have little raised parts because the suction is that strong. You are better off with something else.

I can’t speak for anyone else, but I absolutely love my Dyson. It hasn’t lost suction and has never broken on me in the 3 years I’ve had it.  We have the Animal version.

We have a Hoover windtunnel and it’s awesome! I want a Dyson for when we move.

$250 for a Dyson is AWESOME! I say get it.

We only have one (an older one DC19), because the previous owners of our house left it behind.  It is absolutely awesome.  I can’t say enough good things about it.  Unfortunately (perhaps because we didn’t pay for it), we haven’t taken good care of ours.  We’ve done extensive renovations, so have also used it as a shop-vac at times, which is a huge no no.

Seriously, $250 is a great price…pick that mofo up!

I have had a dyson for almost 4 years, and it is amazing. I blew through a hoover, a kenmore, and a eureka … all within 6 months from my Newfoundland dogs hair. The dyson does an amazing job, and it is fairly low maintenance. I use it on shag carpet, laminate, tile, my cowhide rug, and all my area rugs, and it does an equally good job on them all. I don’t have a ball style dyson, and I have no problem with getting it around!

I cannot recommend it enough!
