Rated 5 out of 5 by Sutri Good in the past, better now.
Had a DC6 (Just about the earliest version of this I
believe) Lasted 10 years with daily use, commutator motor.
Replaced the motor assembly once. Had short run time compared
to DC58. Could have kept it running with another motor assembly
but not worth while due to the improvements available in the 58.
So, quite reliable.
Changes to the bin dump mechanism, recharging connection
similar to a cellphone (Different connector type) Big change with
the electronic switching motor and 2 speed capability.Faster
charge rate, longer battery duration. Did not see an end of battery
charge warning, but maybe my attention was on the cleaning. If
this warning is not present, adding it may be sorth while. The
ease of use is good. The dustbin blue screen collects a fine
powder at times which sticks to it and cannot be accessed
with a brush. Can be partially blown clear, and eventually
goes away fairly soon with use.
Great bug catcher, as was the previous one I had.
Cleans small rugs effectively.

it's loud and it doesn't work. you have to literally put the vacuum on what you are trying to vacuum up to make it work. it's also impossible to disengage the canister for cleaning. eventually I was able to get it to disengage, but it was by accident.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Donita Dyson's always reliable
I've never been disappointed with any Dyson product. I especially love the rechargeable cordless hand vacs. They have a lot of power. As a test, I went over an area I had vacumned minutes before, and you would not believe how much this little vac picked up that the other vac had left behind.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TYLCO light weight, great suction
This machine is great for vacuuming out cars, stairs, and around base boards. I used to dread vacuuming these areas but once I received this machine it was a breeze! The only thing that can get annoying is that the air flow blows right into your face if you are looking down at the machine when vacuuming, since the air outflow is right above the handle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DAK1105 I love the Dyson V6 Trigger
This is the 3rd V6 Trigger I've bought, one for each of 3 bathrooms! It makes cleaning up so easy, especially long hair, etc. I recommend this product with great enthusiasm! Thank you, Dyson!!!

It is super for getting the extra left-over pesky lint out of the hard to reach dryer lint trap. For that one job, not to mention all the other handy pick-er-ups it is worth the price! :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Indian02 Neat little vacuum cleaner
Great for quick jobs. Battery life could be better. Over all a neat little vacuum cleaner with good suction.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Macladybug Wow... Nothing else like it on the market
We bought this to replace a year old handheld common brand vacuum. After one year it would not stay charged, nor was the suction worth anything. But our Dyson V6 Trigger is radically different than anything on the market. It's solid, and has the most powerful suction. The machine is thoughtfully made and very straightforward to use. Emptying it is easy and since so much of it can be cleaned you have the feeling that it is quite sanitary. This may have cost over twice what we had spent originally, but it is 10 times more of a machine! This has made us decide to replace our upright vacuum with a Dyson as well.
