Rated 4 out of 5 by Torey Great if you want a compact device
Don't get me wrong, this Dyson product works incredibly well on my carpet and easily gets up the cat fur (and trust me, white and cream cat fur on burgundy carpet really shows up!), However, the unit is considered compact and therefore has a smaller canister and plug in cord with shorter length. This requires me to have to stop, unplug, plug in elsewhere and empty the canister more than I had to one my previous Dyson. It's my fault, I should have gone for the DC65 which is full size and not with this DC50 which is compact. If you don't mind spending a bit more time then yes this unit is for you...you can't beat a Dyson at all! My previous Dyson lasted 13 years!

Rated 5 out of 5 by gasawaye Dysons are worth it!
I've had a Dyson for quite a while now, and I believe that they're worth every penny. They are beautifully designed, and more durable than you might think to look at them. Replacement parts are also available, so you can keep them for years.

Rated 1 out of 5 by jawalsh75 Disappointed
I have owned three Dyson's and this one will be my forth. I upgraded to this vacuum because of the excellent reviews and I just had new carpet installed. Well, I wish I didn't sell my old one because I HATE this vacuum. First the design, it's all plastic. I'm thinking for $500 how is it going to last? Then there is function. It's like pushing a tank. Awkward, it doesn't move well I have to pick it up to physically move it. Then there is the lovely squeaking noise from the plastic rollers. It does pick up well, but my back will never be the same. Save your money, and find another vacuum.

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 3 out of 5 by DES54 My boyfriend used it first and he liked it, except he said it is so light and the hose is so tight that you pretty much drag it along and that's what my experience was, I used my foot to hold down the back of it, but it would still get away from me. I appreciate the advancement of it, smaller light weight, not as loud and really powerful, but I'm still used to the 2007 yellow model, this one's extention cord seems to be shorter too. No matter what I love your company.

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JR57 Terrific baby Dyson
Lightweight, relatively easy to use once I got used to it. Manual is not terribly helpful, but after working with it I got the hang of it. Needs a larger collection bin. Much lighter and easier to use than my circa 2005 Dyson Animal. (Before the "ball.")
