" ...  I can vacuum the entire house on one charge.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I have 2 dogs, a lab and a golden, and vacuum sometimes 3 times a day. ... The suction power, batter power, tank size, and emptying mechanisms blew me away!  ...  "

" ...  Best vacuum I've purchased thus far!  ...  "
comment
" ...  We were in the market for another cordless vacuum as the other one we had didn't do very well, so we decided to go for the gusto and invest in a higher quality one that we felt would last longer and do better. ... Given the long battery life of it, and the incredible suction it has, I now frequently use it to do a quick cleaning of the house as I know it's sucking up whatever it comes in contact with. ... I've been especially impressed with the suction it has and the battery life of it. ... Both of us are totally sold on this vacuum and would happily recommend it to anyone looking for a cordless vacuum that could very well end your need for a lumbering beast like our Rainbow.  ...  "

" ...  Product was light weigth, wireless, and a very strong suction.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I just opened my new Dyson today and despite vacuuming the whole house with my old Bissell vacuum yesterday, I wanted to give it a go. ... I loved that the auto mode switched the suction power when I went from hardwood floors to our area rugs. ... Although this vacuum is pricey, I feel as though the suction power and cordless feature make it priceless in a large home with two sets of stairs!  ...  "

" ...  I just opened my new Dyson today and despite vacuuming the whole house with my old Bissell vacuum yesterday, I wanted to give it a go. ... I was SHOCKED to see how much dust and dirt this vacuum picked up - especially considering I thought my house was “clean”.  ...  "

" ...  Her baseline has always been her Rainbow vacuum that she swears by, but after using this and seeing how well it cleans she's now less eager to haul the Rainbow out and lug it around. ... Given the long battery life of it, and the incredible suction it has, I now frequently use it to do a quick cleaning of the house as I know it's sucking up whatever it comes in contact with.  ...  "
comment
" ...  This thing packs a major punch, and as a clean freak I couldn’t ask for a better machine. ... I can’t imagine needing to use the boost option for any kind of mess. ... I keep a clean house to begin with (deep vacuum every couple of days, and I have a robot vac that runs daily) but this thing makes me want to vacuum everything I possibly can, as much as I can. ... It is quiet, sophisticated, and easy to maneuver from hardwoods to carpet and rugs. ... It comes with four additional attachments, which will be incredibly useful for any cleaning job. ... The larger dust bin is a great upgrade from previous models, and trust me, you’ll need it.  ...  "

" ...  Sucks on tile, thick carpet, anything you throw at it.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I love that it switches modes itself as I go from carpet to wood floors. ... It holds significantly more debris which is great.  ...  "

comment
" ...  Long lasting battery.  ...  "
comment
" ...  One really big plus for us is that it runs off battery charge. ... But now, I can have a charge ready and get it done!  ...  "
comment
" ...  I've vacuumed the entire upstairs and downstairs in a 2900 square foot house and still have plenty of battery life left.  ...  "
comment
" ...  The charge last longer than I had expected.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Things I don't care for are the price, a fixed battery that can't be swapped out or the lack of a powerful light on the torque head.  ...  "
