    I typically use a corded stick vacuum but I wanted something with a smaller turbine head, also corded, that could fit under my bed that only has about a 4 inch clearance and I found it with this vacuum. That's its only pro. The extension tube is very short forcing me to have to bend forward to vacuum which caused me back pain by the time I was done. I'm only 4'11" so there's no way my husband could ever vacuum comfortably. Because the tube is so short it doesn't have enough slack for anyone to vacuum using long strokes or even average length strokes. The lack of slack forces you to vacuum in small patches and it requires you to have the canister at your feet at all times. Every small step you take you need to drag it with you and it's not light so it becomes a nuisance and you can't move around as fluid or efficiently as you'd like. In addition to this the bristles on the beater bar are soft and flimsy which i don't see how it could get deep into the carpet fibres to move them around and suck out the dirt in between. Lastly, it doesn't move around smoothly on carpet. I find myself having to push with force or else it "snags" (for lack of a better term) in spots all the time. I think that may be attributed to the strong suction which definitely is a good thing, but that's your tradeoff. There seems to be a lot of great reviews so this vacuum obviously works for some, but it doesn't work for me. I will be going back to a corded stick vacuum and just remove the mattress and wooden planks in order to vacuum under the bed. I would rather go through all that trouble than to vacuum regularly with this. This vacuum is better suited for hardwood or laminate floors. But if that was the case you're better off getting the cordless vacuum which doesn't require as much time as carpet. With the cordless Dyson you can get all your vacuuming done before the battery dies.

    Poor vacuum . So Although it will pick up larger particles in and several pieces it will not pick up like fine cat litter particles and does not pick up dust on floors.I take a wet rag and mop up the rest of the particles. The rag is filthy. have had repaired several times and still is poor. Waste of money.

  • Awesome!!!

    I couldn't be more pleased with my new Dyson. It fits my requirements to a "T". I needed something light and easy to handle that wouldn't need much storage space. The suction is super and, with the tools, I am able to get into places that I haven't been able to access for a long time, floor to ceiling.
