Where Can I Buy It?

  • Over complicated, high maintenance

    Sep 29, 2012 by
    Not yet rated.
    Pros: Flashy, attractive, high status, good materials.
    Cons: Clog-prone, bad pictographic manual, short, plastic power cord which exits low, vague power switch.

    Summary: You need a good shop vac to own this vacuum. If you have anything like leaves, pet hair, paper bits or cat litter on your floor you will need to dissect and de-clog the overly-contorted tubing from the beater to the bin and the best way is to take off ... read more

    Pros: Does a great job picking up dirt.  Easy to empty.
    Cons: Costly, Cord to short.  Takes time to clean and wash all filters and canister.

    Summary: I bought the Dyson DC24 Animal after reading numerous reviews.  I was not happy with the Hoover I had and wanted to see if the DC24 was better.  At more than twice the cost of the other machines that I used, it seemed to clean almost twice as ... read more

    Pros: Pushes EASILY - Swivels easily - picks up LOTS that you don't see!  

    Cons: Costly, but you get what you pay for.

    Summary: I own the Dyson Ball "Animal" and love it.  It took a little to get used to the "ball' feature, but now that I've owned it for awhile it was well WORTH the price.  It's light weight...VERY EASY to use.. swivels into odd places easily and is ... read more

    Pros: It works very well, and it's actually fun to use.
    Cons: That much? For a vacuum cleaner? Really?

    Summary: Vacuum Cleaners!  I can think of a lot more fun ways to spend my money than looking for yet another vacuum cleaner after another one died. I have updated my Bissell Carpet Cleaner review to show that it wasn't a bargain after all, dying after less ... read more

    Pros: The ball is a neat feature
    Cons: overpriced. 5 year warranty a joke Poorest service ever Loses suction

    Summary: I bought this vacuum 9 months ago. While I thought long and hard about it due to the price, I considered it had a 5 year warranty and thought that if anything went wrong, 5 years of peace of mind knowing all parts and labor were covered would be a good ... read more

    Pros: Ultra cool design, light weight, small, ergonomic, compact to store, nimble steering
    Cons: No light, no height adjustment, no retracting cord, high price

    Summary: The commercials make you believe there is only one engineered vacuum in the market, and Dyson is for the vacuum industry what Apple is for computers. It's stylish, high priced and reasonably functional with just enough cool features to attract buyers. ... read more

    Pros: Excellent, consistent suction for the price. Excellent build quality.
    Cons: Small form factor. Short cleaning hose length. Small dustbin.

    Summary: Having used my mother's Dyson in years past (a DC15) and being completely impressed by it's performance I figured it was time to make a well-meaning investment of my own. My girlfriend and I quickly decided upon the DC24 "Ball" Blueprint Special Edition ... read more

    Pros: effective, light, easy to manoevre
    Cons: ugly, noisy

    Summary: My mother lives on a farm, and she has a stinking black labrador and two cats in and out of the house all day. So it follows that she needs a very good hoover, in order for the house to not need a visit from Kim and Aggie! I don't mean to be mean ... read more

    Pros: Lightweight, ball makes it easier to steer, fits into tight spaces.
    Cons: Cord too short; instructions unclear; flimsy parts; small dirt chamber; Suction okay; inconsistent; buttons stick.

    Summary: I have wanted to try the Dyson for a few years now, but was scared off by the price tag. Finally found a pretty good deal price-wise and bit the bullet. We have a Lab/Australian shepherd mix who, of course, sheds a great deal. We haven't quite ... read more

    Pros: compact, lightweight, easy to store, easy to maneuver, cleans well.
    Cons: Small fill cup requires frequent emptying, short power cord

    Summary: When I first pulled this out of the box, I thought it looked like a child's toy vacuum!  It is really that compact.  The DC24 upright is easy to maneuver and store.  For health reasons, I needed to trade in my heavier vacuum for something ... read more

    Pros: light weight, reusable HEPPA filter, consistent suction after 1 year
    Cons: price, performance, the Dyson Ball, flimsy overcomplicated construction, lack of rotating brush action

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Cleans well, not too loud, very compact, no bags, easy to manuver
    Cons: Cord is way to short, small dust bin, hardwood floor button sticks to power button

    Summary: Having had several less expensive vacuums over the years, we decided to pay a little more in hopes of a better unit.  Much of our carpet has been replaced with hardwood floors, so we needed one that allowed the beater bar to be turned off for use on ... read more

  • Not bad but not quite living up to the hype either

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: lightweight, retractable handle and small size makes storage easy in small home
    Cons: high price, tiny dust cup, short accessory hose, ball won't fit under furniture

    Summary: Due to arthritis, I was no longer able to use my trusty-but-weighty (and now discontinued) Dirt Devil bagless vacuum cleaner to deal with the effects of a dog, a dirt yard, and a naturally dusty old house. At 11.6 pounds, Dyson's DC24 was the lightest ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Extremely lightweight, maneuverable, versatile, easy to store anywhere, washable HEPA filter.
    Cons: Not as powerful or fully-featured as larger vacs.

    Summary: This is a great little vacuum from Dyson. I used to have the original, non-Ball, DC07 Dyson, and it was a good machine, still going strong with no problems at all after four years. But for me it was very heavy, cumbersome and kind of hard to maneuver. I ... read more

    Pros: Good for carpets.
    Cons: Unwielding hose, lousy suction in wand. Not good on bare floors.

    Summary: Have owned this machine for 2 years. Hate it. Great for large open carpeted floors. Lousy for baseboards, crevices, upholstery, under and around furniture. The unwielding hose is to short, horrible to manipulate. The bare floor mode blows the dog hair ... read more

    Pros: Moderate suction
    Cons: Tools awkward, expensive, leaks dirt, won't pick up dirt, loud, heavy no service outlets

    Summary: In all of my years of fixing and selling vacuums this whole line of vacuums is a joke.  The ball is the worst and the others are not far behind.  The claims they make are way off, the vacuums do loose suction,  they leak dirt so if you ... read more

    Pros: there is no pros except the look maybe
    Cons: expensive, not better that any other vacuum, unreliable and horrible customer support

    Summary: I bought the DC26 4 month ago. Jiust got off the phone with the support. The changeover valve broke apparently, they have no repair in the area, need to send it back by UPS, It will take 3 weeks to get it back. Horrible call center. I don't how do ... read more

    Doesnt pick up small items

    Summary: Ok, after reading the reviews I "broke down" and bought the Dyson DC24 "all-floors lightweight" vacuum.  What a piece of Junk!!!   I did the "test" in reverse--I used the Dyson first and then my phantom vacuum--and my good old ... read more

    Pros: Lightweight, easy to 'drive'
    Cons: somewhat flimsy construction.
    clogs easily.
    nearly impossible to clear intake hose.

    Summary: Just ordered the dc24. It's first job was to clean up the needles the xmas tree left behind. Within 1 minute (yes, really) it became clogged. I spent over an hour trying to find a way to access the intake tube to no avail. I was finally able to unclog it ... read more

    Pros: Bagless construction, Vacuum power, Weight
    Cons: Price!, Flimsy feeling construction

    Summary: I bought this vacuum on sale about 8 months ago, since then it's gotten a lot of use.  I appreciate the small size and bagless vacuum style, but overall the vacuum feels pretty flimsy.  It's a chore to set up the hand brush.  The suction ... read more

    Pros: Lightweight, compact
    Cons: Requires a lot of work just to make it work.  Short cord. 

    Summary: When my 10 y/o Wind Tunnel finally bit the dust I went shopping for a new vacuum.  My house is a smaller two story with hardwood and tile floors.  So, I wanted something compact (100 y/o houses lack storage space!) and lightweight to go up ... read more
