Rated 5 out of 5 by JeanClaudeshopper Great product , fast delivery
We have 6 animals in the house and all the associated hair, dander, and feathers. The Dyson picks up all of this plus the dirt and dust from our normal activities. We have to empty the canister twice per cleaning session but that is a minor inconvenience. We hope that it lasts a long time; we'll see.
We received the product within 5 days of ordering it, Thanks JCP.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pokey This product far exceeds the description of its cleaning abilities!
I thought my house was fairly clean. Vacuumed with the Dyson and the finest dirt and silt and dog hair was captured and easily disposed of. Was amazed at what had accumulated using another brand name of cleaner. Would not trade it for machine costing much more money as I cannot imagine it doing a better job.

I was amazed with the amount of dirt and dog hair that this vacuum picked up and I love how light it is. The only thing I would change is the canister size, it could be a little bigger.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bobbiMc Thank you Dyson
I am 73 yrs old and I have been having my husband do the vacuuming for the past few years because it hurts my shoulders and hips. Now that I have the DC50 Animal I do all of the vacuuming myself. No problem. It is just my size and moves so easily and cleans so well. You don't have to keep going over the same area. It cleans in one stroke. All the power of a full size dyson. Much more powerful than any other vacuum I have ever had. It goes rug to floor and the attachments are very useful. I especially like the hair removal attachment. I use it on the bathroom floors and no tangles to deal with. My husband is very glad that he gave it to me for my birthday!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by RWill Great Vacuum one slight con.
This is hands down the best vacuum I have used. I live in a small 2 bedroom apartment and this vacuum is the perfect size. It's small and agile and doesn't compromise on power. It's an investment that is well worth it. The ONLY thing I would say that could be altered is the hose. The hose, when using an attachment, is sometimes a hassle to deal with. It retracts too strongly and makes it harder to use. Other than that, there is absolutely no complaint.

Rated 4 out of 5 by StephanieL87 Exceptional machine!
This model is amazing! It keeps up after my family of five wonderfully. Fantastic suction and built to last. I look forward to using this machine for many years to come. The only downsides that I will mention, is that the little black bristles do seem to come off easily. We have lost quite a few portions of those, and we do not use the product in any way other than intended. The last thing is that it is very low profile. While that is wonderful for many things, it does prevent it from picking up things that most vacuums would get. Other than that, this machine is fantastic, and I would buy every single time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by dwally Great for pet hair!
This vacuum works great as long as you don't want to use the pull out wand-type thing very often. The vacuum itself cleans really well, is light, and is easy to move around. It is also EXCELLENT in removing pet hair from carpet or fabric (i have a dog and a cat). However, when you want to use the extension wand, you have to remove the electrical cord from where it is kept (coiled around the back of the machine) in order to get it out. The wand/tube extension is also not very long; you basically need the vacuum next to you and then have to keep your foot on it to be able to pull the extension to it's full length (probably because the machine itself is so light). I am OK with this as I also have a cordless Dyson and therefore do not use the extension wand on this very often (usually just for vacuuming the couch), but if you would use the extension often, this is probably not a good choice for you.
