I had the Dyson DC24 but got rid of it. It has low suction, fills the tank too fast, does not work very well on rugs, and is only good for small jobs. It was a disappointment and waste of money.
There is an oval house that gets a hole and suction is lost. When I called Dyson, they knew exactly the problem so it is a common problem.

The specs say it comes with a warranty card, but does not say the length of the warranty. Any help on this woot? It could be a deal breaker.

Bought one of these a while back. It's been broken twice. Same problem - the button that turns on the beater bar has broken. Total time used...maybe 20 hours.

First time vacuum shopper. I live in a small studio apartment by myself, with some carpet and hard floors. Is this vacuum an overkill for me? Which vacuum would you guys recommend to me? I don't usually have a whole lot to clean.

We own a dyson a like ours a lot. However in your situation I may look at something like this:
Hoover UH70120

It's rated well by consumer reports and considered one of their best buys. In my experience hoover doesn't have the best longevity, however it should give you a good number of years of light use.
To be fair their quality could have improved in the last six years since we last owned a hoover.

If cost is not an issue I would lean towards the Dyson. It would take up the same space and do a mighty fine job of cleaning.

We have two Dyson's. A standard upright DC?? similar to the DC40 and this one, the DC24. Our DC24 has required servicing twice; the beater motor burned out both times. We rarely us this vacuum these days otherwise, I suspect it would have been in for repair even more than it already has. The DC24 has very little suction while the standard upright does a pretty good job. At 200 bucks, the price isn't bad and this is a very light and thus seemingly easy to operate cleaner which many would find appealing. Personally, I prefer one with more suction that actually performs the job you're trying to accomplish; the upright performs this pretty well.

Also, I assume like any bag-less vacuum, keep in mind that these things need cleaning pretty often if you expect them to function properly. Unlike a bag vacuum, I would recommend emptying the canister about every time you use it. My wife hates the thing and does not like emptying it due to the resulting dust storm... so much for having HEPA filters as it gets you back each time you empty it, unless you wear a mask to do so. Again, this can be said for any bag-less system and is not unique to a Dyson.

I wrote a short review when this model was up for sale previously. Unfortunately, there are a pretty good number of Dyson groupies out there who seem to believe nothing can be wrong with a Dyson. So, take it for what it's worth. If you have a small apartment and the need for a small, lightweight vacuum take presidence over the need for a powerful vacuum, this may be right for you. Otherwise, I'd stick with an upright or get a Royal http://www.royalvacuums.com/or Kirby http://www.kirby.com/. I don't currently own either, but I want one!

I have had my Dyson for about four years and I love it. It is lightweight and easy to carry and does a very good job at vacuuming. I used to have a Kirby, which was very heavy, although it had wonderful suction. By far, this Dyson is the best, even though I had to pay full price for it, when I got it from Sears.

I don't know why, but in my area there are always at least a half-dozen vacs at Goodwill or Salvation Army that are intact and working. You might try one (either upright or canister) for $10 and see what style you prefer...then invest in a new one if needed. Never seen a Dyson there, though!

This would be big-time overkill. Go to Wally world and get something for about $69. That's all you need.

And W00T reviewers gives it 5 stars. We bought 1 in BB $549 plus tax and1 here for less then half the cost, $229 back then, no tax, $5 shipping.

This is an excellent deal for an excellent vac. We say it all the time. Neither of ours ever broke down in a good amount of years, touch wood. Our home is full of Dyson products, fans different types of vacs and always will be! They're the best.

I have learned that some people who give the bad reviews didn't regularly empty, clean, and wash their filters. Not doing this will cause clogs and a chance it may overheat.

Yes, because it is totally rational to base one's purchasing decision on the accent of a spokesperson.

Watch for W0000T to have the DC 35, they have it often or a similar model. We have 2 and L U V them even in an over 6000 square foot home & finished walk-out basement. We use it for small daily cleanups, the kitchen after dinner, bathrooms and more. It's well worth a few day or weeks wait for W00T to have it once again. If you feel you might move to a larger space in the next year then by all means get this vac w/ the ball. We have 2 for a long time. I would stick with a Dyson model of sum sort, none of ours ever broke so far! With 6, having 4 different models that isn't by chance.

BTW. The commercial is not irritating at all. The person complaining is being ridiculous or only buys the Bag of ........s on here or cheap items perhaps. ;)

I prefer to live in downtown of a big city so I don't think I'll get a really big place in the next few years. I might move to a 1 bedroom apt once my gf came to live with me next year though. So I guess the DC 35 best meets my needs then?

Same thing here, but my issue was the plastic step release along with the beater bar button. Dyson's also loose suction really quickly contrary to their claims. I have a Electrolux now that has lasted a year without any issues and NO loss of suction.

Horrible vacuum. They break, they clog, they lose suction, basically everything that they promise won't happen, but you can expect that from any vacuum, it's just that Dyson's are trendy and cost a crap load. Also, there are WAY too many pieces to it if you want to clear a clog as you have to take it apart to gain access to the area that seems to cause the most clogging, which is just behind the brush head.

No it's not. Lots of vacuums ,like Hoover, are half the cost of this Dyson and perform as well or better and will last just as long or longer.

The "guy with the British accent" is James Dyson - the founder and inventor of the Dyson line of products. He's not a "spokesperson".
