We have one, not really a huge fan of it. Doesn't do anything that any other vacuum can't do. Got the one thats supposed to do hard floors and carpet. When using it on the carpet if you bump something or run the wrong angle on the carpet that it doesn't like it makes a horrible noise and you have to stop and mess with it to get it to stop. We have had just about every high end vacuum. Hated Kirby with a passion, Rainbow was my favorite but takes up a lot of room.

They last for about 2-3 years and then go to crap. Would never buy one again.

Yeah, I found those responses unexpected too. My wife and I have had one for almost 5 years now and love it. We have never had any issues. We got the purple one that is supposed to help with animal fur. I also like how easy the arm hose comes out and extends and all of the little adapters. I use it to clean my car out in the garage all the time.

I think it does a great job but I will admit that it probably is on par with other good high end vacuums out there.

Oh, and once every year to year and a half I do a thorough cleaning of the vacuum and take out and clean all the filters. I personally think that it helps a ton!

We just bought our second Dyson - Another animal. First one last 10 years and still works but we broke some parts off it and my old shorthair had peed on it a few times - wife got feed up. she looked at others but came right back to the dyson. Does a great job cleaning, easy to take care of and as said before make sure to clean out the filters and such once in a while. GSP and two labs, no complaints with this vaccum at all.

On 8yrs with our first one, the Animal, MIL bought a Rainbow or Kirby's when we bought this, bragged to high heaven on it, then her and the wife went to clean a friends house, you could physically see the difference in the two, MIL sold the whatever and now has the Animal.

There are other name brand vacuums out there with “cyclonic” suction, at half the price or less. Save your money.

And cleaning is my thing, so those filters will be spotless.

Thanks for the input everyone.

They are worth every penny when you consider everything. They have all kinds of sucking power although that's not what really makes them great because most high end vacs can do about the same. Where they shine is in there long term savings.

1) they are bagless, so you never have to buy them ( and bags are expensive)

2) like all vacs they have filters, but the Dyson filters can be washed and reused so you never have to buy replacement filters ( filters are expensive)

3) they really don't lose suction either when they are almost full unlike most vacs.

4) they are durable, I have one that has been working flawlessly for 10yrs!

5) that awful sound they make when you suck up something is a cluth inside the head that prevents the belt from breaking, so you will never have to replace a belt.

6) and when bought at sears, they come with a 5yr warranty!

So when you consider that they start out great and aren't designed to nickel and dime you like all other brands are its a no brainer for me.

I own a Sears store and have been selling them for about 10 yrs, and believe me I have learned to only try to sell merchandise that lasts otherwise I will certainly here about it!

FYI we have one of the basic models on sell right now for $250! Just don't get it at Walmart! They can't service it ( if needed) like sears can!

Sorry for the long sales pitch but I've finally found a thread on this site that makes me feel like an expert.
